No problem, mate!

So, back to business. This week was a fairly good week. We've got some good stats, especially the fact that we even managed to get a total of 7 RRC reviews on just one request. SCTE3 is also very close to the 4,000 total points milestone. SCTE3 and Soapbubble, as usual, managed to keep up with their 100% streaks, so again, great job! Other reviewers also did a good amount, namely Haggard and NimbleKidX. I'm also adding members like crazy, even if they don't post their points. Remember that whoever wants to join should post his points in their first week, however, or else there's no guarantee you'll be added to the list.

I personally enjoy the fact that we have soo MANY reviewers now.

Sadly, because of such a large amount of members, the Average per Member stat went down a little. A lot of members were inactive (including me :c) and while almost everyone posted throughout the week, there are quite a few who now have a star or two near their name. We also forgot 3 sigs. OMG NOOOOO. On a brighter note, I'm seeing some nice, detailed reviews by even the people who didn't do many reviews, so that's good.

I'm not sure if I forgot any.

Enjoy the update, everyone!

Thank you!

02 ) 7518 | 1165 / 2310 | 050.43% || 051 | 08 / 18 | 044.44% | Haggard

Eyyy, nice to see you doing a handful of reviews again

03 ) 3978 | 0612 / 0661 | 092.59% || 118 | 18 / 18 | 100.00% | SCTE3
05 ) 0904 | 0141 / 0141 | 100.00% || 118 | 18 / 18 | 100.00% | Soapbubble

Almost 4,000 and almost 1,000!

08 ) 0131 | 0021 / 0049 | 042.86% || 045 | 07 / 18 | 038.89% | NimbleKidX
10 ) 0036 | 0005 / 0049 | 010.20% || 021 | 03 / 18 | 016.67% | MrMusicalLion
13 ) 0025 | 0004 / 0018 | 022.22% || 025 | 04 / 18 | 022.22% | SkyeWintrest NEW!
14 ) 0009 | 0001 / 0018 | 005.56% || 009 | 01 / 18 | 005.56% | Xenophaje NEW!
15 ) 0005 | 0001 / 0017 | 005.88% || 005 | 01 / 17 | 005.88% | ESTAR48 NEW!

Well done, I'm glad so many people are doing reviews now.

Statistics:
Average Per Member: 4.13
Average Per Request: 3.44

Well, they're not bad at all (:

Sigs Forgotten: 3

I hope I didn't forget any?

*New to the List: ESTAR48, Xenophaje and SkyeWintrest

Welcome!

*All Requests Completed:
SCTE3 and Soapbubble

Same procedure as every week

Should be able to do that quite easily.

Flash Requests (3)
Audio Requests (15)
Art Requests (1)
Extra Audio Requests (1)

Terrible ratio as per usual. Wish we had more art and flash requests.

Thanks for the update and list guys!


I'm back, I guess.

Thanks! i actually do spend a good amount of time,about 8-13 minutes on each one,it's kind of a habit to hear the song/watch the flash im reviewing more than once to hear/see everything and make sure i didnt miss anything. even when my reviews are fairly short,it's still takes time. i don't know why i do this,even when im in a hurry. i just seem to.hahah.

20 requests for the week? a regular week,i suppose. i will try to get everything done this week even though im heading to a friends house so then we can head to marching band camp. 2 weeks of brutality. i'll be sure to do lots of reviews,though,as i do have time on the weekend before the next update.

Just popping in to say that all you reviewers are amazing. Really - I've actually become a much better composer thanks to the insightful, oft constructively critical reviews you give. I honestly appreciate all the hard work and effort you people put in during your spare time and encourage you to continue doing so in the future. Kthxbye.

NOTE - READ THESE RULES, EVEN IF YOU HAVE ALREADY READ THE RULES IN THE FIRST POST. THEY ARE AN UPDATED VERSION OF THE RULES IN THE FIRST POST AND THEY HAVE NEW IMPORTANT RULES!

Hello! Welcome to the new Review Request Club thread. This thread is meant to give the club a fresh start and make it a pleasant place to stay. In order to do this, it goes without saying that you must follow the regular BBS rules and read the C&C Advice Thread before posting if you are new to this forum.

This club aims to increase the exposure of the most under-rated Newgrounds music, art and flash artists. The other major purpose of the club is to offer the Newgrounds artists high quality feedback so they can constantly improve their work.

To the requesters:
Every Newgrounds user is allowed to request a review as soon as he submitted something. To get your work reviewed, don't post here without thinking but follow these few rules:

- Post a direct link to the submission(s) you want reviewed.
- Make no more than 3 Flash and Art requests between two updates (that's one week), and no more than 3 Audio Requests between 5 updates (that's four weeks).
- Please respond to reviews, reviewers like it and some of them are statwho... oh wait, interested in stats.
- Be patient. Due to the points system, you may not see reviews until up to two weeks after you requested, or if you requested more than 1 Audio submission, you may not see reviews on your second submission up until 3 weeks after you requested, and you may not see reviews on your third submission up until 4 weeks after you requested.
- Do NOT request without posting a link, be kind, reviewers are not robots.
- Do NOT simply say "Review everything" or just link to your profile.
- Do NOT request reviews for the same submission more than once.
- Do NOT request reviews for a submission with over 50 reviews.
- Do NOT request reviews for spam. Spam is only there to annoy, not to be critically analyzed.
- Unless you are a club member, only request reviews for YOUR OWN submissions.

To the reviewers:
If you want to join the club and complete requests, simply post in the thread saying you would like to join. Then, regular members will go through your reviews and determine if they are good enough to be part of the club. Your reviews are required to be helpful, developed and well-organised. If you need help with writing good reviews, read Fro's guide to writing helpful reviews.

Once you are accepted, you can start reviewing stuff. If you are a new member of the club, once you understand how the point system works, please post - one or two days before the update - the total points you've earned during the week. This is considered as a sort of application form, and if you fail to do so, you will NOT be added to the club.

Points System:
List updaters will keep track of each member's points in order to build a list. You don't need to post your points before each update but you can keep track of your score on your own so any error can be fixed. This is how points are counted:

5 points for a review on a requested submission (movie, game, art, or audio).
1 point for writing "Review Request Club" at the bottom of a requested review.
3 points for posting at least once throughout the two weeks.
5 points for referring a new member (must mention you in first post).
7 points for reviewing all requests/recommendations between two updates.

Club Updates:
Each Sunday or Monday, a list of all the members is created, counting up their points, featuring various stats and posting a list of requested submissions. Assuming you review the submissions in that list, you will get points for them accordingly in the following members' update, around a week later.

Don't forget the lists are built and updated by humans so it may be possible the update is delayed due to various real life reasons. If it ever occurs, don't get mad; calm down and wait :).

Frequently Asked Questions:

Should we have an FAQ?
I don't know. It kinda seems like overkill.

Why a new thread?
The main idea was to give the club a new and fresh start. Since the old one was flooded by requests and not updated any more, the RRC regulars thought creating a new thread would be best for the club.

Should I link to the club in my forum signature?
There's no obligation to do so, but it's certainly appreciated. Remember that you can put a high number in place of the page number in the URL and if that page doesn't exist yet, Newgrounds will take you to the latest page, whatever it is. For example, "http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/107 2042/999" will take you to the latest page of this club.

RRC Signature?
Yes, at the end of each review, if you want you can write down 'Review Request Club'. There is no obligation to do so, but you'll get +1 point if you put the RRC signature in your review. You can add anything you want to it, E.G.: *Review Request Club*, |Review Request Club|, -Review Request Club-, etc, but as long as 'Review Request Club' is clearly written, you will get the point. You are also allowed to add the sig in any reviews other than requests in this club, as long as you are a club member yourself. It's all the more exposure for the club, and it's very much appreciated.

+1 point if I put the RRC signature in my review... I'm not sure if I get it correctly.
You gain 6 points for a review on a request with "Review Request Club" in the end of it, as opposed to 5 points if you hadn't added the signature at the end. If it's still not clear, read this.

Does the Review Request Club review for non-NG stuff?
No. It must be an NG submission. If you have a non-NG submission which you would like us to review, then use your common sense and upload it to NG. Also, we will only review using the 'Write a Review' method on submissions. We won't send reviews by PM, review in your newspost or review in any particular thread of yours.

Do I have to review all the requests?
No you don't have to, just do your best :). Though completing them all will give you 7 extra points.

Which requests should I review?
If you want to get points for the next member's update, look for the latest requests list in the club thread and review the requests from that list. If you review any requests from various posts in the thread which would have been posted after the latest requests list, you will be getting points for the member's update after the next one.

can u review allz mah flashz guise? kthxbai.
No.

If you have more questions, feel free to post about it in the thread or PM a member and if your question is frequently asked, it'll be added to the FAQ.

---

That's all about the club, though this new version of the club couldn't be opened without mentioning the old thread regulars who have made it a great place to spend time. Kudos to Freelance-Magician for creating the original club and to FattyWhale for maintaining it for so long. Thanks also to Sonofkirk for starting this new thread and doing many updates.

Have fun!

Okay fine, I have to drown out a hentai review I made in a sea of new reviews anyway. I try to make my reviews as detailed as possible, it's easier for me to review games than anything else, but i'll check out and try to review any music or video's.

Paragraph long reviews are cool. I guess I would try to expand it to two paragraphs though. One detailing what you think should be changed to make it better and what you liked about it. You can join if you wish, don't have to review everything on the list for the week if you don't wish to either.

Steph thanks for adding me to the list but I think you don't need it anymore, I specified this when I joined, that I would only join this club for a certain period of time...my mistake, sorry I didn't told you that I leaved already.

------------------------------

By the way, the RRC Game has been forgotten? haha. I'm currently working with Ugolegend94 (to Steph: the guy who made our radio design), I'm programming a Madness game and also working with personal engines...I believe that "RRC: The Game" will be stopped for some time.

If someone is interested to do art for the game and suggest and ideas, please tell me! :)

Not really much I can think of for art in the game. As for when they would be grabbing the correct icons to review during the part they fly by you could try this:

Flash - The 4 square icon in the flash portal
Audio - Music note in a circle
Art - A paintbrush in a circle

That's pretty much all the ideas I have at moment.

Yeah, the flash files will be .SWF files, the audio files will be .MP3 and the art .PNG (or .JPEG).

I also thought of two modes in the game, like an easy and a harder one--BUT, the harder one is only unlockable if you win some achievement of something (or maybe it could be avaliable without tasks).

That's pretty much all the ideas I have at moment.
Yeah, the flash files will be .SWF files, the audio files will be .MP3 and the art .PNG (or .JPEG).

I also thought of two modes in the game, like an easy and a harder one--BUT, the harder one is only unlockable if you win some achievement of something (or maybe it could be avaliable without tasks).

Could make hard mode unlockable after beating the game with the three main characters. Then after you complete hard mode with them you unlock both bonus characters. the bonus character's easy mode would actually be hard mode while hard mode could be expert like, lol.

I HAVE RETURNED!!! I had an awesome week, it's great to be back!

Holy crap, a lot of new reviewers recently. Welcome, all!

Really interested in the idea of the RRC game, let me know if I can help at all.

Now to catch up on a week's worth of reviews... and respond to all mine... yeah, that won't take long.
