This coming Sunday. The list posted by Shanus on this page was just put out last night, so you're going to have to wait a while. :P

I wouldn't mind joining this fine association. Ive not really done that many reviews cause i fail to see the point at times but it looks like fun to join. Plus ive got summer holidays which means i have a bit of time to spare as well.

Great! Welcome! If you would like to join here, then just simply start by reviewing the request list posted by Shanus on page 160 (Probably just higher up on this page, as this post will probably end up on page 160...) It's the current list for this week, you have till this coming Sunday to finish it.
Besides reviewing, the only other thing you have to do is add up and post your points here in this thread once your finished writing the reviews.
You get points for writing reviews, and for other things as well. You can see how many points you have total, along with how many reviews you've done and you percentage rate, among other things, once your name is added to the user list. (You can also find this list in the same post I linked to above.)

Here is a key for tallying up your points when the time comes

You get...

5 points for every movie/game request reviewed
7 points for every audio request reviewed
+7 points if you do ALL the requests for the current week
+3 points for posting here throughout the week
and +1 point for EACH review you write "Review Request Club" in. (You can look at my reviews for an exapmle, if you wish. :) ) -You don't NEED to write it in your reviews, you just get an extra point for it. :P

I think that about covers everything. I know its a lot to take in all at once, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. I, or any other member here will be glad to help walk you through anything you need help with. Have fun!

Yeah man. That's what we are for. I know I'm not the best reviewer, but some of these other guys give pretty awesome reviews. Mine are helpful compared to a lot of other users, but some of these guys really put me to shame.

Along similar lines as CymbalSymbol I'll say thanks for the steady supply of reviews, keep up the good work dudes and dudettes (more like dudes and dudes pretending to be dudettes, lol amirite?).

AWWWWW somneone said something nice about me! Thanks metal! But if you want total honesty about my reviewing I really learned how to do it from the RRC when I first joined here. These guys were a huge help, and I learned through their review style how to do my own. No cake walk though, most take 20 minutes a piece to write. Big pain, and sucks when an author ignores your review because they don't feel like reading it.

Just a risk you have to take, but thanks for the compliment!


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

I thought it wasn't fair to put you on this weeks, as you would've only got like 11 points, and you didn't really understand the new system, but you'll get your 100% and 120 points next week don't worry.

I'm having laptop problems, so I don't think I'll be able to do the list this week, and next week I'm at a music festival, so if Haggard can do the lists it's ok, but I don't know. Any feedback from anyone would be good

You have laptop problems, I have computer problems... so if you can mail me the excel-file to do the update, that would be great. ^^

Hi! I was wondering if I could get some reviewers for my (and my friends) movie "For Nina"

It's basically a music video to Blink 182's song "First date" but I recently gave it a MAJOR upgrade and I think not enough people have seen this upgrade.

Also, I'd like for it to be in the "music video" collection, which really needs more flashes.

Never got to respond to this before because I was BBS banned for a while and then I forgot. Eitherway, I still don't like that idea of having two lists, it gets confusing and seems like a waste of time. And everying I said before, so yeah, I haven't changed my view on it, I just ignore it, lol.

To requestors - if you made a request since my last list and it is not listed below, I have made a mistake. I am, after all, only human. Let me know if I missed your request or got the link wrong.
If you make a request after this post, it won't be included until next Thursday/Friday's update.

To reviewers - this is the list of requests made between my last update and now. It's a 'preview' of the list that will be posted on Sunday or Monday - Haggard or Shanus will probably tally the points for these reviews in 10 days time - on the 13th/14th July. If you haven't already completed them, I suggest you first review some stuff from Shanus's list on page 160.

General Rules for Requesters:
If you are planning on requesting reviews, please:
- Make no more than 3 requests within one week.
- Respond to reviews.
- Be patient. Due to the points system, you may not see reviews until up to two weeks after you request.
- Post a direct link to the submission(s) you want reviewed.
- Do NOT request without posting a link.
- Do NOT just say "Review everything".
- Do NOT request reviews for the same submission more than once.

Spotlighted Recommendations:
Movie: Best present ever by Krystal (KrystalGeorgiou)

You get points for reviewing recommendations.
You may make a recommendation if you reviewed 100% of the previous weeks requests and recommendations. It should have fewer than 30 reviews.
(stipulations pending Haggard&Shanus's input - how does 'It should be over 3 days old and have under 50 reviews' sound?)

Plaintext version here.

Hopefully this'll be the first list in a while where I don't make a mistake and need to double or triple-post.

If you thought there were a lot of requests last week, better start downloading the audio and watching the movies! ;-) Summer has begun and with the holidays, everyone's being creative.

Just got back to glasgow a few hours ago. I might take an internet-holiday sometime over the summer. depends upon a bunch of variables but this is me letting you guys know of the possibility.

At 6/26/08 05:59 PM, Shanus wrote: I agree completely about the Spotlight Submission rules. I also wanted to suggest a movie but couldn't because it had 50ish reviews. We need a revision of the rule.

Well, that rule was originally instated to prevent you guys having to trawl through a hypothetical 500+ reviews just to see if we've reviewed it or not. You/Haggard are the ones doing the reviewer updates so you say how many you'd be comfortable with as a limit.

How about Spotlighted submissions need to be over 3 days old and have under 50 reviews? If something's gonna be swamped with reviews, it's likely to happen due to the daily award or being front-paged, which happens soon after normally. Is 50 too many or does it sound reasonable?

At 6/28/08 05:00 PM, phantomlassuk wrote: Sorry i dont meant to sound stupid but is the list ,Bezman did on page 158 meant to be done by tomorrow?. Sunday. Im really confused he said they added, to the list from last week,but then says probably tally the points for these reviews on the 6th/7th July. I worried as i not done alot of the audio ,and flash game ,and movies. Is this next week list? help!

The date I wrote was (for once) correct. I post an update of requests on Thursday/Friday night both to split up the work slightly and to give folk a bit longer to do reviews (I think it's good to have a chance to let music grow on you or get boring and games can take a while to complete...). My lists have a deadline of around 10 days after they're posted.

I changed the opening message a bit - is it clearer?
