If I am correct, I should have around fifteen points at this point. Correct me if I am wrong.

Nope, you don't have any right now. Make sure you review things form the most recent update SCTE3 posted on page 244, not as users request them.

s'moar art... so that'll be two art pieces entered this week for me.

  • Wizard
    Wizard by samulis

    Another piece of 3D-based conceptual work. I re-did the entire process from scratch, using some different methods for the fading process in Photoshop. For this one, I put together the clothing of the wizard from a few textures I had and created the terrain, which is supposed to be a mountain top. The sky is a photograph I took myself. That whole package was put together in 3D, then exported and ran though a digital automatic painting program, which closely matches traditional painting technique by placing brush strokes in the manner a painter would, using the image only as a key, unlike a filter. This, as well as filters, generally ticks of painters, but is an easy way to make a nice faux painting without having to learn how to paint, although a good eye is needed to make sure it doesn't screw up. Anyway, after that, I aged it in photoshop using a variety of brushes and overlays to give the effect of an old painting on a piece of parchment.

To be honest, your reviews aren't really good. Try to at least give a few tips and pointers about each movie, game, piece of art and audio you review. Don't just say if you thought it was good, but what was good or bad about it.

Of course, you will have to write a different review for each type of submission.
For movies I always look to three things: the animation quality, the sound and if the video succeeded in what it wanted to accomplish (make me laugh, inform). Next to that, I write some things that I noticed during the movie, but don't fit in these parts. Like creativeness, story, etc.
For games I look at the same things as movies, but then also to if everything worked, if the game concept is original, and if it isn't too repetive.
For audio I usually divide the music in different parts, and tell the author what was good and bad about each of the parts. Did it sound nice, were there any special effects, or was the calmness of the song what made it really good. Or bad of course.
If you look at art you can often immediately see if it deserves a seven/eight or a four. If you can give the author any pointers, do it. Say what you like, what parts need more detail, and what parts are just fine. Did you like the colouors the artist used, did you think the shadows are nice, and did you njoy it as a whole?

These are just some things you can look to, and you don't have to include all of them in each of your reviews. Try to at least write a few paragraphs of text every time though. I would prefer a few thought-out reviews over a ton of one or two sentence reviews.

The reason my reviews aren't to par is because I wasn't even trying. I was unaware that our previous reviews would be checked. From now on I'll work harder on them.

Well, let's put it like this - our reputation as a club is at stake. We want people to review for us and to get people thinking "Hmm, those guys and girls from the Review Request Club really know their stuff. They are helpful, don't just leave YouTube comments and actually appear to care. I'll tell some of my friends about them."

Without us approving you to write reviews for us, how can we expect to preserve this balance?

I completely understand, but I just have no idea where to start. I guess I'll just start reviewing recent movie submissions.

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!

Usually the normal time to wait is about two weeks. We must have overlooked your request. Sorry for that. Since there are really no reviews yet on your submission I think it's ok for you to request it again. Hopefully this time you will get some reviews from us. :)
