Finished all the art requests. Now only 10 audio requests left. Shouldn't be too hard to get them done until Sunday.

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!

I'd like to join the club.

If anyone could take the time to review this demo I'd greatly appreciate it.

If you'd ask me, you can join. You really need to work on your flash reviews though, but I guess you will only come here to review audio. Your reviews in audio are all right in general, but you need to stop making 1-3 sentence reviews there too. At least give some points of improvement.

Just for clarification, review a few (or all) of the submissions on the list nearly at the bottom of this page, post the point total at the end of this week (that's sunday), and you will probably be accepted.
I'm not the most regular here, so you may need to get a ''yes'' from someone like SCTE or supersteph.

Nah, any member can accept new members in, so you don't need an approval from more regular members.

@fishfood, you can join although try and work a little more on making your reviews more detailed. You can either start on the last requests list and when you're done you post your points (points system can be found at the top of this page) sometime before Monday, or you can wait until the next requests list (scheduled next Monday) and start then.

Alright! All done with this week's list... time to get a head start on the next one :p

oo and btw!

what happens if I review something before it gets recommended to us? I can't extend my review at all... so am I just screwed out of getting those points?

This has already happened to me before, and it's gonna happen again this next update. :(

It's not your fault and you probably would've reviewed it after it got requested anyway, so I still give you the points. If there's no signature then I can't give you the 1 extra point though.

Please, may I? I'll do three tracks a week if I must, but if not, I'll keep it to one. I've got three songs which I would like reviewed, although I know it's been a while since I submitted them to NG.

You get the points for next week as SuperSteph54 stated. The only thing it does is make the requests on the list for next week smaller for you since while there could be a big list, if you did a majority of them already then you have less to do on it.

As much as I enjoyed the plug in from Tom we only got one request, oh well. At least more people will hopefully know of us now.

Hello! I've got an audio submission that I recently listened to again and suffered a severe wave of nostalgia over. I spent about a month with it, making everything sound perfect to my ears, and forgot about it for a while before finally uploading it to NG a few months ago. Since then it's had a pretty meager amount of exposure, which I don't mind, but not a single person has given me any input on it.

I stumbled across this thread and figured it would be the perfect way to finally show someone all the hard work I've put in on this, as well as humbly request some kind of critique.

Here's the submission: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/4 20315

Also, this club seems pretty awesome, and I wouldn't mind being a part of it, if that's alright with the members. I recommend considering my audio reviews more than my flash reviews, since my flash reviews were, for the most part, not reviews of fully finished or serious works.

Ok I've gone through and gave my input on all the audio. I figured it was a better idea that I stayed away from the art section since I really know nothing about it :/.

Reviews are actually not too bad, welcome to the review request club. Feel free to eat the cookies on the table over there and enjoy whatever drink fits your fancy.

I'm working on some even better stuff than this now, but here are some of my favorite works I'd really like to get reviews on. I've had great luck with the RRC in helping me develop since a few months ago, and I'd really like to see their collective/separate input again, as most reviewers find 'nice' to be a better review than some actual constructive critique (albeit it is nice to see).
