You just did the first step by asking. ^^
Right now you have only a few reviews, but they look really good. They are well structured and all of them are at least two paragraphs long. However, I suggest you wait until SCTE3 posts the next update (he usually updates on Monday/Tuesday).
After the update has been posted you have one week to review as many submissions as you like. But be sure to post how many points you gathered (you can find an explanation of the points system on top of every page). You are only required to do this on your first week here. That way we can make sure you understood the points system. :)
I deleted my last request to change a few things so hopefully that doesn't count toward my weekly limit.
This doesn't need explaining (unlike that last one), but this is the soft version. The original version contains ear rape that people apparently hate so I compromised and uploaded two tracks of the same song. If you're looking for the more "artsy" version then go with the hard mix (link in description), but if you're looking for the more pleasant go with this.
You guys are doing a great job, keep it up! I'm really getting a lot out of the audio reviews you've been giving me, since it helps so much to know how my music sounds to other peoples' ears.
Thanks for putting up with all my experimental bullshit!

Haha, experimental and interesting.
Also, (I entered this rap-battle and am apart of it), so I can very well vote on it/review it without having some sort of bias to it all. Lol. So, uhm, I would really appreciate it if anybody here could vote on it for us? Its currently tied right now.. Me vs. Mao
Hello! Brand new tune I'd really like you to take a look at.
I took a different approach on this one, and pretty much recorded everything myself via my MIDI keyboard. :>
Hope you'll like it!
Hey Review Request Club!
I'd love some feedback on this track of mine. :)
It's a track I made a while back mostly for fun by using the voice clips from the game Team Fortress 2 and I'm looking for any kind of critics.
Hello, I have a *gasp* audio request. I know you guys would rather have art/flash, but alas I can't do those. :c
Forgive le terrible midi quality.
Can you review this art please?

Same here.... almost all done anyways.
I finished a new song and you guys liked my previous so I thought, maybe I should post here again :)
This is it.
Thanks already for reviewing :)
Heyyyy, some awesome person scouted my art, so now I can get your invaluable opinions on some of that, too!
Looking forward to reading more top-notch reviews!

I might get a few more done in my quest for 50% and beyond, then.
Roll on lunch time!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 :).
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.
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.
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.
Hey Review Request Club! Can you review my illustration?
I put a lot of time into it. Thanks!
This was a pretty good week anyways. We got a got amount of reviews in and some submissions ended up getting 6 reviews at the most. We only lost one member, HyperTrough.
Haggard, Coop, me, and XsakuX all managed to get a decent amount of reviews done this week which is always fantastic. No one got 100% however, that's alright though. shrimpchris, Gimmick, and Knuckstrike all pitched in and got a couple of them done too. SkyWintrest and Phobotech got no reviews in and SuperSteph54 is about to fall off the list.
I'm about to pass 6,000 points and XsakuX gets closer to 2,000!
Enjoy the update.
