Guide seems to be pretty nice TheBellmaker and yea, that guide I did was back when I had flash too. If I ever got flash on my current OS I would likely make it a multi-guide including the guides of several users in it. The main menu allowing one to decide which kind of guide to check out and then once on that page they could look at the guides of several users who have written flash/audio/art/abusive review guides.

Crap. Didn't realize our vacation is tomorrow, and not next week. I'm not getting all the reviews done, yet again. I will be gone until Thurs, with limited internet access, if any. We'll see what happens.

Bellmaker, you should put that on a news post or something and have a link to it. I think it's really good, and a lot of people could benefit from reading it. Possibly something to put on the rules post that's at the top of each section..?

Anyway. That's what I think, take it or leave it.

I've done a few audio reviews, a couple flash reviews and an art review. I think I am quite capable of writing reviews and I enjoy doing them. So?

Your most recent review for flash, reviews for audio, and reviews for art seem to be pretty good. Feel free to join.

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!

Sure thing as long as the reviews are at least two paragraphs and not going off subject then sure. We usually update on Monday so you have time to review things from page 202.

This is not my submission, nor do I know the person who made it. Also, this has, minutes ago, passed judgement with about a 3.60. This is a great flash that deserves some recognition. Now, I know that with it's score, it's bound to be known more, as it's fresh, but I have a sad feeling that it won't. This is "better than 90% of the crap people are posting today" one reviewer said and I agree. I am not a part of this club, so I do not know whether asking you to review someone else's flash is prohibited or not, if so, I apologize, just trying to stay human and help.

I don't think the rules say anything about requesting other people's work. I know I'll probably review it either way, if it's supposedly better than 90% of what people are posting.

Seeing as it has less than 50 reviews and we don't usually have a large amount of flash requests I would be more than happy to add it to the list of things to be reviewed.

Well... there's always the internet (videos). Since I get no good channels any more - that's what I resort to in any situation regarding TV shows... although I never did like the powerpuff girls much.

If anyone wishes they may add some of the clock day content to the list of things to review, I saw quite a few good clock day pieces submitted with great scores but little to no reviews at all.

Well. It is Monday. I'm betting that if we let it go to Tuesday too often, in a few weeks it'll always be done on Tuesday, in another few weeks, Wednesday, then Thursday, etc.

Guess what? Another superb week. It's quite possibly even better than last time too!

So, while we haven't really reached any milestones this week, the stats are great - better than last week's. We got even closer to 5.00 as an Average Per Request, probably due to the fact that Coop and Haggard made a great comeback this week by each doing 11 reviews. Max amount of RRC reviews on one request was 6.

As always, SCTE3 and Soapbubble continued their long 100% streak with SkyeWintrest managing another 100%. Great job to Soapbubble for reviewing all of the requests in such a limited time period, and I also think SkyeWintrest deserves a mention for writing such detailed and helpful reviews and being able to continue his 100% streak at the same time.

Bad news: more people were inactive this time (and again, so was I...), and Spysociety has been excluded due to inactivity. But all in all, we had a fantastic week. Maybe sometime we can pass that average of 5.00 per request? :D.

Well done everyone, and good luck for this week. Sorry for the delay, by the way!

As always, SCTE3 and Soapbubble continued their long 100% streak with SkyeWintrest managing another 100%. Great job to Soapbubble for reviewing all of the requests in such a limited time period, and I also think SkyeWintrest deserves a mention for writing such detailed and helpful reviews and being able to continue his 100% streak at the same time.

Hey, I don't want to let people go without reviews, and I plan on going into detail so people can improve. That's what reviewing is really about, right?

Bad news: more people were inactive this time (and again, so was I...), and Spysociety has been excluded due to inactivity.

Aw. Still no awesome reviews from you, I remember seeing that you nearly maxed out the character limit constantly in yours. Also, bye, Spy. Come again another time, from what I've seen, we need more reviewers!

Oh noes. Two whole signatures.

*All Requests Completed:
SkyeWintrest, SCTE3 and Soapbubble

Yay. Still got 100%. Let's see if I can keep it up until I get closer to both of the other two.
