My Bands name is Us Against Ourselves, we were wondering if there is anyway you could check out our music.
We make music from the heart and would love any feedback anyone has to offer!! If you would like to share it or even use any of our tracks we strongly would appreciate it!!

I have been in the NG Community for a long time and the people here are unlike anywhere any social media outlet has to offer, simply because the community cares about each others work and are willing to work with each other!!

Thank you for taking the time to read my message and I hope to hear back from you soon!!
UAO

P.S. - We would love to do any collabs as well, If anyone wants to work on anything please please please P.M. us!!

Anyone up for taking over the club? Want to hand it over to someone who's been in the club for awhile and would be able to take better care of it. Will show you the newer way to do the club, less stat based, more user participation.

As I've said, I want to step down from being a reviewer due to time problems. So I really don't see myself taking over the maintenance of the club. ^^

Hello, RRC! I have volunteered to take over. @NekoMika said she would give me the new rules, but I don't have them yet, but I can say that we are getting rid of the points system (which few people are actually using anyway) and making it less stat based with more participation from the users. Also, I would be happy to review submissions personally, so you can PM me about that. I hope this all sounds good. Keep requesting reviews, and keep this club going! Happy holidays!

NekoMika got me the new rules:

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!

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 they have 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 it let's reviewers know if you find the feedback valuable :)
- 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, however, sometimes they can be humorous when done right.
- 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-organized. At least two paragraphs per review goes a long way in being helpful. A paragraph telling what you liked / think stood out and another one noting stuff you feel could be improved or make the content better in the future.

Once you are accepted, you can start reviewing stuff. If you are a new member of the club, once you understand how the rules and system works, you'll be added to the list of reviewers each week.

Review System

As of December 2014, points are no longer a part of the system. The reviewers are coming to us for our reviews and input on how they can improve. If you're just reviewing to boost your review count then you are missing the entire point of the club which is to help out the reviewers. The point system was rather cool for it's time but these days, there needs to be less emphasis on us getting points out of it and more on actually helping out the community by writing reviews which will actually be able to help them.

Only rule for reviewing is to add "Review Request Club" at the end of your reviews, gives some free publicity to the club for both reviewers and review requesters. <3

Club Updates:
Each Sunday or Monday, a list of all the members is created, it notes who has been active, how much they reviewed out of all that was requested (sans bonus requests), and how active they are. Users who wrote reviews that were marked helpful might get a smiley face beside their username or whatever the user running the club decides they wish to do.~

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 and most people tend to skim over it, lol.

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 give the club some free exposure which is never a bad thing these days.

Does the Review Request Club review for non-NG stuff?
Most likely not but if you really want us to review a song / story / animation, or something off site, you can send one of us a PM (Private Message.)

Do I have to review all the requests?
No you don't have to, just do your best :).

Which requests should I review?
The latest requested ones, if you feel you can offer criticism or words that would help the author improve then fantastic!

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. Also, thanks to Step and NekoMika for helping running the club for so long and keeping it alive.

Have fun!

Thanks for taking over the club cga :). I'm a bit afraid that people might loose interest in participating in the club without the point system, but I agree that it was a good decision to remove it. I'll try to be even more active myself, so let's keep this club going ;). Holla at me if you need some help with anything :).

UPDATE! I have changed one of the rules. You no longer have to sign your reviews with "Review Request Club", but it is preferred that you do so if you do not already sign them. I would also like to say that if you would like to request more than we allow, feel free to PM me, and I will review it within a week of the send date.

I've never knew about this topic (and I come to NG before it).

I won't post my stuff here because they aren't good enough for your kindness guys.

The time is the most scarce and important thing nowadays but even so you reserve some of your time to be simply generous.

Very nice of you all.

I think your stuff is good. :) But if you don't think it is good enough, then why don't you ask for feedback so you can improve?

I feel like it is an okay time for a club update, but I don't have a ton to say this time. I am very pleased with how this club has been since I started Newgrounds. It has dropped slightly in activity since I took over, though, so tell your friends about this club and get us more members!

I will try to start reviewing as many things as I can that are requested here, I hope my feedback is valuable. Don't be shy, post your stuff. We have taken the pledge to provide good, helpful reviews for people that want them, as long as they follow the rules of submitting and the club.

I am very excited to be the leader of this fantastic club!

Happy reviewing!!!
