Yes the clocks, locks, glocks and others are a really pain when trying to keep the portal clear of shit flashes.
Most give up voting fairly on clockday and it becomes more "I want the points, so let the flashes in."
Well, Captain, sir, I do admit that some of these flashes do have quality to them. I mean, plenty are bad, sir, as you claim, but some of the Clock Crew work especially shows plenty of flash skill and quality worthy of the Portal.

You ahve me a little out of context here, Sergeant. I mean that I want to work the portal, but there are never enough movies to sate my ravenous appetite for judgement. I turn up and there is only about five movies on occasion. I nned at least 20, to make me feel like I have done a decent shift
I didn't really meant to take you out of context, Master Sergeant, sir. I was merely stating that your best is obviously good enough to take you to Master Sergeant, even despite the adversity of having bad timing on the Portal. Just remember that any work you do on the Portal is good work, and will be counted towards you. Instead of getting run down by only a few flash, embrace them and take what you can! I'm sure you'll run into good days when you have more time and can really show the Portal insurgents what's for! Hooah!

On that I must agree with you fellow phantom. People want only the points and don't care what goes in as long as they have the point...But I remember a flash that no person got a point on in any way. When Tom first uploaded the massive littlefoot he deleted it because something was wrong. The score at death was 5/5. Any way I struggle with these point chasers all the time so I know how they act on the __ock days...
You make an excellent point, Master Sergeant, sir. However, remember to not shoot first and ask questions later! Some of the flash by the names of these *ock groups are good. In particular, some Clock Crew flash are actually good, which I vote 5 on simply based on flash quality. Rather than holding a bias towards these groups, I fairly evaluate them based on the others. HOWEVER, sir, certain groups (Barney Bunch, Apple Army, and whoever does that "Gost" stuff), just never seem to cut it, no matter how many chances I give them. My discretion on the Portal might be nicer than yours, sir, but don't be under the impression that I blindly let people pass my path on the Portal. I simply take each one in stride.

But you should remember, quantity is not equal to quality
Definately, sir. However, as our Captain said, the people submitting these files are not new to flash, sir. If someone you KNOW is a good flash artist makes a flash that is 9MB, you KNOW each MB is put towards a lot, and not just some uncompressed audio file that wasn't cropped for a 15-second flash animation. Generally speaking, if you are a flash guru, size does depict quality...to a point.
I protected Dad n' me, plus Bitey of Brackenwood. I'm a mainstay on protecting illwillpress and Weebl flashes, as I'm online when they are submitted, but I also like them, which helps.
I frankly do not understand the big deal against illwillpress, sir! If you simply take the flash for its quality, illwillpress has excellent quality to his work! If you take it in by simply dialogue, I think it's rather funny, even if the statements are a bit vitriol. However, add the fact that a high-pitched squirrel is ranting to you about everyday things, and you have yourself some funny viewing material! I'm not a "fanboy," as some would call it, but I do find his work has merit and deserves to be passed at the very least. Thank you for agreeing with me, sir! (As well as you, Master Sergeant the_phantom16, sir.)

Fully agreed, sir. Frankly, sir, I think people so obsessed with Germaine really need to search the darker realms of the Internet for sustinence. I think the flood of e-mails would hinder anyone's ability to do work, despite the fact that flashwork of that quality takes just plain time, even with tons of ideas.
I am glad my fellow soldiers are as impartial as possible when dealing with flash, as it shows the quality of the soldiers in the esteemed Elite Guard. We are truly holding up our name as the supreme protectors of the Portal! Hooah!
