Review Request Club Jun. 18th, 2009 @ 05:11 AM Reply

Hello! Welcome to the new Review Request Club thread. This thread is meant to give the club a fresh start so make it a pleasant place to stay. In order to do this, follow the regular Bbs rules and read the C&C Advice Thread before posting if you are new to the Bbs.

---

On the club now, this club aims to increase the exposure of the most under-rated Newgrounds musicians and flash artists. The other major purpose of the club is offer flash and audio 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 flash or audio 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 requests within one week.
- Please respond to reviews, reviewers like to see author's reaction and some of them are interested in stats.
- Be patient. Due to the points system, you may not see reviews until up to two weeks after you request.
- Do NOT request without posting a link, be kind, reviewers are not robots.
- Do NOT just say "Review everything" or just link to your profile.
- Do NOT request reviews for the same submission more than once.

To the reviewers:
If you want to join the club and complete requests, simply post in the thread saying you'll join. Once you've joined, you can start reviewing stuff. If you are a new member of the club and once you understand how the point system works, post - one or two days before the update - the total points you've earned.

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 (flash, game, art, lit 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 week
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 listed, you will get points for them on the following members' update, 6 or 7 days later.

On Thursday, a list of all requests and recommendations made since the previous Thursday is created. This can be considered a 'preview' of the list that will accompany the following members' update on Sunday/Monday. The points for these are tallied 10 days later.

Requests made between the 'preview list' and the 'members' update' carry over to the next preview list. So you will always have over 9 days to finish the reviews.

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:
Why a new thread?
The main idea was to give the club a new and fresh start. Since the old one was flooded by request and not updated any more, the RRC regulars thought creating a very new thread would be the 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. It's always more exposure for the club. 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.

If you have more questions, feel free to post about it and if your question is frequently asked, it'll be added in the "Club Infos" post that'll appear in almost all pages of the thread.

---

That's all about the club, though I couldn't open this new version of the club without talking about the old thread regulars who've made it a great place to spend time. Kudos to Freelance-Magician for creating the original club and to milinko959 for maintaining it for so long.

Have fun!

I'll do my best to keep this club at the best level and maintain it as long as I can.

Important note: Since the Art and Literature portals will be launched soon, the club will be expanded to art and lit requests. As you should know, the Art portal is technically on, but request from this portal will be enabled when it's fully available. The same goes for the lit portal but the launch shouldn't occur that soon.

I'll go back through the old thread and will make a requests list from the reviews for the past week, to get the ball rolling. Expect that at about 1300 - 1330 BST

Thanks a lot for the list man, you save me a lot of time taking care of it. Also thanks for the first Art request ever in the history of the club :D.

Review Request Club Roll Call:

The goal of this roll call is to take a census of the members who will still be active in the club even though we went through a long period of inactivity in the old thread. That way, the future updates will be more accurate. Please post here if you were a member in the old thread and wish to continue your commitment toward the RRC.

This is only for returning members. Those wishing to join as new members must still post their points at the end of the first week, before the update that should come on Sunday, 21st at about 8:30 AM GTM+2.

On a side note, returning members who have a link to the RRC might want to update their signatures ;).

Ah, I reviewed a submission from the art portal yesterday, so I at least had one review to practice. ^^

I have been a member of the old club and I wish to continue staying active in the club. So count me in. :)

This will be done in a minute. :)

Good luck with the new thread. It looks like it's had a good start so far. Great first post.

My brother would like one of his tunes reviewed, and since it was completely lost in with the other requests in the old thread (enough for it to not have received a single review), I felt that I should rerequest it if that's possible. Cheers.

Glad to see this place is now going to be flowing at a much better rate, I'll be joining once more, anyone with more than 3 requests can send a PM to my inbox with the extra reviews wanted. Also will more likely check this thread weekly now seeing it has a fresh start, chance and not as many unwanted requests.

Also sonofkirk, you forgot one other rule to put in the thread, we shouldn't review spam submissions as was with the other thread.

Hey everyone! Hope this club thrives like it did before. I'll slowly get to work on some flash reviews, but probably not audio because, well I really don't know what to say about most audio.

Umm, I'll join this club. Now that high school be over, time is aplenty. And I get bored. Pretty sure it didn't say this in the first post, so I'll ask. Do I just join and review things as people ask, or does someone look through my previous reviews and determine me worthy to be a part of this club?

I guess that's another job for me, as I'm clearly the most qualified member for that one :P

I've looked over the reviews that you've done and they look decent. Perhaps use a few more paragraphs, rather than just the one block of text - go easy on our eyes, you'll miss them when they're gone ;)

I'd also recommend that you try Gemcraft 0 - it's the new release from Game In A Bottle, after you reviewed his last submission.

Can do. It's usually cuz I'm too lazy to try and figure out where it would be a good place to start a new paragraph. But I'll make the effort.

I'd also recommend that you try Gemcraft 0 - it's the new release from Game In A Bottle, after you reviewed his last submission.

Yeah, I remember that coming out, but I don't think I ever played it.

Also, does the person who has the most points at the time of an update win anything other than the pride in knowing that he's better at reviewing than people on the internet who he'll never meet?

Well, you've already put the new club in your sig, so I think they're legally required to keep you. Don't quote me though.

Aw crap.

Now that the RRC requires a check of what your reviews are like, how helpful and long they are, and other important review requirements.

Not only that, but many of you guys hate me, after how I acted and typed in past
months (specifically colder ones), and even if I tried hard to improve, I could never fit in with you guys anyway. Although, one guy says a recent post I made sounded very mature.
But anyways... I'll let you guys review things now.

P.S. This is NOT meant to be a pathetic attempt to be accepted by you, or helped with improving of my posts.

Well, bye now.

We perfectly understand that you couldn't keep updating the list, real life is more important than the internet. Also you are more than welcome in that club :).

I checked your reviews and they seem fine and constructive, though as Coop pointed out for Jew193 try to divide your reviews in paragraphs, your reviews will instantly look better. Good luck with the requests!

Not unless you were a real retard, that is.

Not a bad selection of reviews. Try to avoid reviewing the Spam submissions, as it's seen as feeding the troll. Best not to say anything at all.

Yeah, you can still request, I will add them to the next list in order for sonofkirk to update on Sunday Morning.

Don't worry, Coop will add the first three requests you made to the list. Your recent reviews look fine even if you could work on the way to lay them out, and we don't have any members limit so yes, it would be cool to have you as a member. Don't forget to post the points you've earned before Sunday morning.

And the Wi/Ht fourm misses you @;-}>

That's cute ;). I haven't been active at all in the Wi/Ht - except from the two audio lists - because I was focused on the RRC but I'll be back at some point.

Well then, maybe if I tried writing reviews like I semi-normally did in the past (sectoins for Drawing, Animation, Plot, Effort, Music etc.) for awhile, I could join you guys!!

ALTHOUGH: I am getting my laptop back next week, so it might/would be pointless for me to join considering my laptop couldn't play NG music even if I changed the settings, and threatened it with a weapon.
