I might be mistaken, but shouldn't I get some points for posting within two updates? I don't care too much about points, so I don't mind if I don't get them, but it's more for clarification.

My bad, I did see your post in the thread when I was checking who posted throughout the week and who didn't but somehow I forgot to write that down in the spreadsheets :P.

It's fixed now, thanks for the heads up!

Hey. If you guys could take a look-see and review the latest Sketch Collab, that'd be great. Thanks in advance.

All reviews are done!

Every single last one with the exception of one of the art requests because it was deleted before I could review it. Got the two extra audio reviews in too.

Only missed one sig I think, so that should be 120 points in total with the 7 extra for 100% included.

Good times.

Awesome. I do that from time to time and get them all done in a short time span which reminds me... I'm coming close to 2,100 audio reviews and 400 art reviews. Awesome!

Nice one. I've finished all of the Art Requests and one Audio Request, so I'm halfway there and the week isn't even halfway over yet. Gotta love being ahead of schedule.

Shame I know barely anything about Art, because my Art reviews weren't really that helpful...

Don't worry. I know nothing about art, so my reviews basically suck. Just give it your best. That's all anyone can ask. Quality, not quantity and all that...

Thanks to everyone who reviewed my song last week. I finished it, and everybody's input was taken into account. Hopefully you'll all like the finished version. Review it if you want. SCET3, if you want to put this in the extra audio section so people don't have to review it, go ahead. Don't want to make it so there are more audio reviews that have to be reviewed than there already are. lol.

Hello Review Request Club. I know this isn't my place to bring this up, but I figured it was the best place to say this. Perhaps it would be nice to open your doors to those who will be uploading their entries for this year's Madness Day. What do you say?

@The-Great-One

I'm fairly sure that any reviews requested are fair game, as long as they don't have too many reviews already on them.

We are more than welcome to request from that day as long as they don't have over 50 reviews which should be a majority of them. The door is always open for request though unless it has over 50 already. That means almost any flash can qualify since most don't get over that. On the other hand, most spam submissions are not accepted either. Hard to review something when the author didn't mean to put forth effort. Oh but hey, if you plan on doing a Madness flash then feel free to request it. Kind of hoping there will be at least a few entries where violence is the main subject of it.

It's alright if you forget the signature. We all forget to put it on them from time to time.

You've got some pretty good reviews. I'd suggest making them a little bit more detailed and talking about a few more aspects of the submission you're reviewing, but all in all they look helpful enough.

To start reviewing, go to the latest requests list and review as many submissions of it as you want. When you're done reviewing, post the points you gained by reviewing sometime before Monday (points system can be found at the top of every page) and I'll add you to the list of members.

From then on I'll be the one who keeps track of your review stats and the stats of the other members.

Question: Do we have to put [Review Request Club] or whatever for all reviews, or just for things that reviews are requested for?

Don't have to but it is good advertising for whomever maybe viewing the flash/audio/art and let them know we will do reviews if they ask.

Oh, good. I just wanted a consistency to my reviews, either ending them with the summary or not putting the [RRC] at the end at all.

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!
