So I was looking at the top reviewers on NG today and I started to wonder to myself whether there should be power based on the number of Helpful reviews you write. I guess it wouldn't work out at all, too many technicalities, but just look at some of the top reviewers. A lot of their reviews are written just so they could be known as top reviewers...they aren't actually useful reviews. They don't help the author, but instead they're just...there.

I'm sorry for my rant about this but I just find it ridiculous. Some of these users are getting "respect" on NG for having such a high review count when they've probably only legitimately helped about half the people or even less than they've reviewed for.


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

Meh, it's ok, it's good to let it out sometimes. For myself I could care less about the people on the top lists, I don't know them so why should I respect them?

I did not, I don't watch Fox News. So what are you talking about, and what exactly is it? (link would be helpful) But something about the absurdity of Fox and Giraldo at Large makes me never even have the slightest desire to watch them.

Well i think the clubs and WI/HT forums are the ones, i post in the most Rage`s one the most. I want to get back to posting as much ,as i did last year. I noticed that some of the abusive reviews ,are taken longer to be deleted then usual. The trouble with general is that there seems to be alot of stupid threads, about fapping and spam. I have seen some good one sbut they seem to be rare. Only another 12 and i have 700 reviews.


Archer I'm a good shot!

Exactly what I think, couldn't have put it better myself, in fact. I just don't have the time or energy to look for the diamond in the rough and General. I like Wi/Ht because everyone's nice and it feels good to know you helped someone do something important to them.

Just so you know, I'm not mad you guys anymore. I was a little tired, and a little pissy, and I felt...well, I posted about how I felt.

So don't mind me, I'm just lurking until I have something relevant to post.

Well, there's no way in hell Tom or Wade can have a system so someone has to review the reviews (no pun intended) before they get in the rankings of the highest reviewers. And you say they're getting respect but they're not getting respect from the people that are worth getting respect from so there's no need to worry.

Ah no worries Thing. Shit happens. It's the end of the school year, summers just beginning, and on top of it once you've been on Newgrounds long enough...you start to hate it a bit. I took about 10 months to a year off and I came back and began to love it here. Dunno why, I just did. Hopefull you'll start coming back here more often, we miss your long arguments with me.

Mm. I really don't care about that shit, and they bring up moot points because how are violent video games any worse than the news that those exact same channels show, like gang wars and fighting and shit? It's just as bad, if not worse, because it's actually in real life, but those channels try to claim that they are trying to fix the problem. Bullshit.

So guys, what's our plan for Clock Day?

Here's mine:

Well first, I plan on downloading Portal Guard from NGLog.

It'll really help.

Then, sleep a grip the previous day and wake up at 11:30 to start checking the portal because I know some retards are going to start submitting before Clock Day actually starts.

During Clock Day, I'm gonna have Portal Guard pull a feed every 10 seconds so I know when a new submission pops up.

Whilst inhaling gallons of my favorite energy drink, "Crunk".

An hour after Clock Day ends, I plan on checking NGLog like every 5 minutes.

And that's about it.

Our goal is to get 1 BLAM POINT for the entire NGDD. I tried to think of something better, but even 5 Blams are pretty close to impossible to get on Clock Day. Which is why I'm enstating a new mission just for clock day.

For every 1 BLAM point you receive, I'll give you 20 XR. It doesn't seem like much, but I add up the XR at the end of the year to see who wins prizes.

p.s. World of Warcraft is down until about 2:00 p.m. Life sucks for me terribly right now.

Clock Day submissions have only two fates:

1. Pass UJ.
2. Flaggd as "Abusive".

So, have fun with that.

Told you WoW would consume you.

Yeah, I don't think 5 is even possible.

It is now my goal to get 1 blam point. (though it'll probably come from something that was abusive and blammed for that reason)

Going through withdrawals right now?

Sadly, yes. My warlock is about halfway to level 37, which means only 3 and 1/2 levels until I get my totally sweet Felsteed mount.

Oh, and if anyone DOES get a blam point, I want the proof to be sent to me via PM with a screen shot of the date and time on NG log.

If I had ANY idea of what you were talking about then I'd try and comfort you.

Sounds good. It will be my eternal goal to get one blam point that on August 17th.

I almost made the where is / how to regular list. I was tied for first with 4 votes, but you need 6 votes to get in. That's alright though, since the voting is every month. It's not like I can't make it some other time.

Well, almost good for you then. But who votes, and how many people vote. And is it a club for the Wi/Ht section of the forums like the C & C Regulars thread? Like is it the same idea, but with voting to get in?

It's not really the same. It's really an honor to be voted in on that. The current members all vote on who they would want to be a regular, but nobody wins unless they get atleast 6 votes.

I think you had two votes, if it wasn't you then it was someone else who had the base name jew that got voted.

Haha, I'll go check it out then. But I can't believe that I was voted on at all and I didn't even know it. I'll go see and make sure if it was me though. I do go there somewhat often though, so...

??? next time provide a link.

And to corky, you were right, it was me, and I didn't even know I was eligible. But I'm not going to be disappointed, because I wasn't expecting anything, but I'll definitely try harder to get voted in next time, especially because that's part of my job as part of the BBS Department here in the NGDD. But I guess that still shows I'm not slacking off in my duties here.

I saw the thread about the Toture game 2 i was so angry wish, i did not let thing like that bother me so much. Cant help it its feel like a attack and thats wrong. Alot of people got angry over it which is not surpising the ironic ,thing is with the exposure Fox news have made it more famous. So are you saying on Clockday they may be a contest?

I think I agree with you if you're saying that Fox News is hypocritic.

So are you saying on Clockday they may be a contest?

Kind of, but not really. It's just that for every blam point that each person gets on Clock Day that person will receive 20 XR points. And we have to show proof. So I wouldn't really call it a contest, but you can still win XR points.

Nice to see you still have optimistic views. I think if everyone thought that way, this world would be so much better off....

I get a lot of PM's from users believe it or not because of where it says I have had experience as a counselor in my blog and I have had a lot of people that I help out and they have told me that they are happy that there is still people in the world like me. I really just like helping people, it makes me feel better about myself.
