30 reviews isn't bad for the short amount of time your account has existed on NG. When my account was a week old, I only made three reviews. :S So welcome to the club. :)

40.5% Still at a nice response rate! But it'll take a while for me to get to more than 50%. Laziness and reviewing to flashes that I won't get a response from. All it requires is patience. :)

i was browsing the C&C and saw that my old friend turbo had put this up, so i was wondering if i could get in. looks as though my reviews are missing I'm sure i had at least 100 three months ago, last time i was on. but i also notice some of my old friends are here, so it would be a good restart for me in this club.

For a while now, I have decided that its not how many reviews you have, but how helpful your reviews can be. I haven't hit 200 yet, but most of my recent reviews have been packed with helpful comments and critique for the author. I think I'm the only person to recieve a response from Realmguys, which makes me happy.

-I've got 189 reviews on this account.
-44 reviews with responses.

What really bothers me though, is when people give me unhelpful or abusive marks for the huge reviews I write, that ooze out helpful comments, even if I didn't really enjoy the flash itself. Some people make reviews so the audience can see what I thought about it, but my reviews are directed at the author, and I think thats how a good review should be made.

Oh yea, I'm joining. :-P

Yeah some people surely have a lot of reviews, but man they're all pretty crappy one-liners (don't want to mention a certain name that is pretty well known here). And yes your reviews are surely pretty long, longer as mine actually. That doesn't always mean they're helpfull, but I presume your's are.

Yeah I've seen some pretty stupid author responses ( I presume that was what you meant). The one that I find the most annoying is this one:

Flash by Auz:
- none -

Not that I ever got that one, but I've seen some people who got it. I too hate it when I get an unthankfull response or a respond where the author didn't get what I was exactly saying. The last thing is probably my own fault, but nonetheless I don't like that. Sometimes I wish I could respond to an authors respond, but that's not possible, too bad =(

Ha, thanks. I usually do watch a flash a few times before I decide to review it though.

It would be a waste of time to type out of my ass for 10 minutes, so I try to be helpful. lol

Agreed.
Roger Ebert doesn't direct, produce, or act in movies, but he knows movies like the back of his hand. [-none-]That is just a bullshit response to reviews the author can't say anything smart back to.

Yea, if you submit here, expect to be critiqued. If you don't open your eyes to criticism, then your stubborn self will never improve at flash. One time some one IMed me and bitch to me about one of my reviews. oh pleeeeeease.

I think that's okay with everyone, so welcome to the club.

Yeah, I hate it when auther misunderstand what you were saying. In one game where you had to shoot, the target icon was annoying, confusing and very annoying trying to tell whether or not you would hit something. I commented on that in a review, and the auther replied(this is a demo by the way) that he's going to keep it if I found it hard because it makes the game harder and more of a challange. Yeah, I wish you could respond to the responses, but then they'd need to start an abusive responses thing.

some authors just get butt hurt because they get a little constructive critisism. they think they have created a masterpiece but then they find out it's crap or they get flamed because of it. it's a vicous portal out there.

99% of the people who would view a movie don't know how to use flash. The people that hire digital artists don't always know how to use the tools either. But not knowing how to use the tools doesn't mean you don't know a good movie when you see it. Its a matter of appeal. Things like out of sync voice acting, bad music choices, poorly drawn animation, all are obvious even tho you can't use flash.

Your choice, by the way, it's "review" not reviw =).

Dang I got two responses today, here's one:
http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/235903
I really have no idea were I got the other one from though, probably a very old review. I think it's this one, but I'm not sure:

I find that annoying as well. I think people who use that are stupid. It's an old excuse, but I should be grateful that I havn't had a response with that crap on once. However, someone did use that on me on a thread. >:(

it's funny when they pull that, it just makes them look even more pathetic when they can't even think of a good insult. it's like they say that to me and i just admit that I'm no flash artist.

Exactly. It's very old. It makes them look stupid and it shows that they can't accept critism, unless the reviewer makes a retarded review, then I will find the Flash by whatever none okay. I forgot to mention this...

*note- you earn 1 experience point for each review you make. You earn an additional point if the review is at least five lines long. These are called quantity and quality points. These points are tallied seperately and the two separate levels are added together. If you write nothing but quality reviews, than you level up twice as fast. if you write short crappy reviews, than its going to take a long ass time to reach the highest level cass.

Members:

23. Auz

That's me =)

Levels/Experience/classification:

Ultra Light-weights class (25)
5) 100exp

I would be here with my reviews (139 currently), but how many quality review I have I don't know. Well I think I have more than 50 so that will make me level 3 at quality and level 5 at quantity.


35) 20000exp

I think it'll take 5 years before anyone will make it to this level at quality and at quantity.


Response points/levels/classification:

Ultra light-weight class (25)
2) 25res

I'm here only 32 responses so me's a level 2 =(

30) 5000res

Will probably take 8 years or something =)


*note- For each response you get from an artist, you get a response point (res). You can earn up to 30 response levels. added to the 70 Q&Q levels, this makes 100 acheivable levels.

So alltogether I would be a level 10 reviewer, I still have a lot to do I guess =( I'm quite busy the next couple of days so I will be a bit less active.


Is this to everyones liking?

Yeah it's okay, thanks for all the trouble updating this =)


Did I miss anything?

Nope I don't think so, maybe helpfull reviews, but I don't feel like counting how many people found my reviews helpfull.

Hmm, I think you would be 2nd with the amount of responses you get everyday. :S

That's crazy.

Indeed you are, but if you can, try to make at least one review a day. If you can't make 10 reviews a day with your exams, then you don't need to worry too much. I'm sure you can get back on track once the exams are over.

I reviewed Newgrounds SIM on Tuesday and it was an ass long review. I cut some parts of the review out incase I hit the limit again. :S No response from the review, but...

1/2 people found this review helpful. Did you?

Bah, it was 6/8 for my Interactive Buddy review. I wonder who are the people that are mean to mark my review as unhelpful.

Hmm, that reminds me. One of my very old reviews, I remember 0/2 people found one of my reviews helpful. Those two people made me think that using smileys such as XD and :D aren't allowed in reviews.

Other than that, I might review one flash tonight. Since I'm close to the 300 reviews, I bet I'll struggle getting to 300 reviews just like when I tried to get to 200 reviews. :S
