Hey guys - this is perhaps the first song off of my second album. I usually get reviews for early versions of songs off of Newgrounds, to see what I should fix, but this time, although it stayed in the top three on the Trance boards for a long while (until a zerobomber did what they do best) I did not get any reviews on it.

Since this is, then, an early version of a song, I'd like to have some constructive criticism on it.
Link is http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/4 55567

Thank you very much.

Well, that's the way that things go. A poor week for me, but I'm going to try and rectify it next week.

Okay, maybe not, then. Art and Flash should be easy enough, but the Audio is a little steep this week. 11 is the benchmark and that's 6 Audio still to do. Wow, that's some work for the Coop this weekend.

Here's a new song I'd love some reviews on. As usual, if the workload is too much, leave it out from the list.

I recently released a primitive WIP, and I'd really like some feedback on how it's sounding before I vainly put in the the major time to complete it.
Thanks a load!

I'm not going out quite yet, I'll get a review done often enough to stay in here, and definitely throw some attention to someone who's in the RRC who requests a review...

Done a review already, so... Not gone this week!

Glad to be a part of y'all, thanks for letting me in. I've been knocking out some Audio requests...they're so numerous! Why is reviewing these songs so much more difficult than a flash animation or game?

I'll help mix it up for you guys, I'd like some feedback on another piece of art.

Might be another week I don't review everything. Might get a couple done in the morning then hope this week I can get them all. Been playing with FL studio and just relaxing for the week since it's one of those weeks where I felt a bit burned on reviewing is all. Sorry to everyone I wasn't able to review on the list last week. :-(

For anyone that didn't know it yet, look at me now clock day has been deleted.

Since of the five flash/art requests one is deleted and one is adult, I'm only able to review a maximum of three this week...

Later tonight, going to try doing a couple of audio reviews then update it since I no longer encounter spreadsheet problems thankfully. That and I was in the audio forum a bit more often looking at the one thread asking people to try to review at least one audio entry a day (because you know.... audio and art submissions don't receive as much attention or reviews as flash content but whatever).

I see. I was going to review it but kind of hard to review something with no storyline or anything to it.

That's cool.

Got some nice audio reviews but should check the reviews of other people here, then try 10 flash, audio, and/or art reviews. Then come again. As it is though, you got decent audio reviews anyways.

Add me to the member list.

I used to be part of the old RRC and then stopped doing reviews.

Personally, I don't believe in the whole pros/cons/recommend stuff anymore. I just write what I liked and what could use improvement.

Will do next week once you start doing some reviews first. Can't just add you on there if you haven't done any reviews as of late.

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!
