not our thread :)
not big enough to need leaders - what would their purpose be?
the rules are: stick to the BBS rules, and dont talk about stuff Wade bitches about - he's got every right to... it's HIS site pretty much :) haha.

i think we should just keep going at a steady pace :)
i've done over 10 today, so i'm happy :)
going for 1,500 responses!

i guess this is my new home XD hahah.

Indeed it is. Welcome! I'm surprised you didn't join this club sooner. With you around, I can see this club being more active.

if you want a listing of the top 10 reviewers which gets updated everyday, go to www.newgrounds.com/portal/stats. its down the bottom.
anyways, this place looks just dandy :)
hello ALL!!! :D haha.

I know. I think those people are crazy.

So close to 100 responses. But maybe I should try and make four or more reviews today. Incase I don't get a response from one review. XD

Sure. 128 reviews isn't too bad. Maybe this club will encourage you to make more reviews.

i had 'the top reviewers list' thread... it contained all of the major reviewers of the site.... i didnt even know this place EXISTED XD hahaha.
plus i never looked through C&C, all i did was have links to the C&C threads i visited.

Anyway, enjoy your stay. =)

thanks, and i will.

Well, thanks for letting me join. just out of interest, what is the longest review you've written? My longest was 12 lines for Kitten Canon. Mine are ussually only 2-5 lines, but I occasionally do more, and unfortunatly I've done less as well, a lot less.

i've written around 3 reviews that have been over the max character limit, which i had to size down...
i think one of them was for one of Seizure_Dog's collab.... yeh, that would have been around 40 lines or something i cant remember.
back in the day when i had around 1,500-2000 reviews, they were all atleast 8 lines long, otherwise i'd give myself a kick in the nuts XD haha.
now, some are 8 lines, but most are around 4-6 i think...
still more than most other people write.
bleh.
good question.

Going through all the responses wouldn't be much of a pain for me since it's only 10 pages to go through. And I hate it when it takes a few days to a few months for the author to respond to my review. I think that the author will never respond to it. However, I have had responses that were responding to my reviews that were around a few weeks old. Oh well, if I get a response, I'm happy.

but you go for that 100 dude, 3 figures in responses is a good spot to be in.

Yeah, if I'm bothered to, I will review flashes that will only take me a day to get a response. So maybe _Guardian_ and _MessiaH_ are the best people to review to tonight. :)

~X~

already did that on one of the few pages this club has. on the last page I also bosted a leveling system for tose of you out there who want to be competitive, or want motivation. I am the leader isnce no one objected to it when I said I was assuming command. I declared Tiger_Chick my second in command. I will give you 3rd in command leadership since you are the greatest reviewer on newgrounds. If some one objects to this just bitch about it in the thread, I can compomise if needed.

By the way, are you joining Marcus and SD? I'm keeping a member list and since neither of you said "I'll join", I didnt add you two to the list yet.

I'll post the rules and stuff again in a minute.

My review for Interactive Buddy v1.01 has 53 lines long. I had to remove parts of the review thanks to the damn limit. >_< So it might've gone over 60 lines. I think the limit for the review should be a bit higher since there could be a very very well thought review made, but had to get cut down due to the limit, but then, there's those damn abusive reviewers. >:(

Oh well, making ass long reviews is quite rare for me. I usually say a hell lot of things if it's a flash that I really enjoyed and I have to give it an overall of 10. I rarely give flashes an overall of ten. I've only gave four flashes a 10/10. Oh, don't count the reviews that are in the Obitauries since I sometimes make a review to a crappy flash and give it a perfect 10.

Response to The Reviewers Club 2005-04-12 11:40:08


Rules would be simple enough,
1. dont spam... much
2. dont flame
3. post links to artists that respond alot
4. post semi-regularly

I'll keep a list of all the artists that respond reviews.

Ok, heres the member list

1. turbosquad
2. mister_maggot
3. Dustminion
4. inertiacPulse
5. XwaynecoltX
6. NewgroundsSPG
7. -Frank-
8. Hiei1
9. Rensen
10. Jamie_McGuire
11. NasFlash
12. Tiger_Chick
13. MasterStalker
14. Bahamut7
15. Crimson-Nova
16. Andersson
17. majorblood
18. eskimokiddie
19. M-A-R-C-U-S
20.Siezure Dog

Each person is rated twice. Quality, and Quantity. A quality review is one that is at the very least 5 lines long.

For each review you get an automatic 1 point. If it is a qauily review you get another point.

Levels

1) 0+
2) 50+
3) 100+
4) 150+
5) 200+
6) 300+
7) 400+
8) 500+
9) 750+
10) 1000+
11) 1250+
12) 1500+
13) 2000+
14) 2500+
15) 3000+

The Max level is thirty. To get to thirty, you must get to levvel fifteen in Qaulity, and Quantity. Now, people who want to cheat and do one liners can only make it half way. I will eventually need to update the levels (add more) but I felt it was fairer to every one to have such low levels because not everyone can have as many reviews as XwaynecoltX does.

does this one seem fair? Questions, comments?

I havent thought of a reward for responses... I guess you can just have then for personal enjoyment until me and a few other members brain storm a little.

Yep, just one more response to go! :D And I think the 100th response will be from _Guardian_ since I left a review to one of his flashes today. I expect a response when I'm on NG tomorrow.

Well, I think the Star Syndicate was the 25th response, Piconjo being the 50th and carmelhadinosaur being the 75th. Now it's most likely _Guardian_. Now maybe I will treat him as a special review responser, if he replies to my damn review!

Anyway, enough blabbering from me. Once I get my 100th response, 125 will be my next target. :)

Carmela dinosaur
Carmel-hudinosore

I just cant tell what it is probably the one you said.

yes, most the first few clubs I joined were so unorganized it was horrifying. I think things just work better when they're organized.

I was thinking about a point system for responses, maybe you could think a system up for that? like every 25 responses is a response level or something?

I think it probably has to stop at level 15. If the levelling up thing looks a bit funny, then please let me know. Oh, if there is going to be levels for response, then should the levels be increased to 20 for all of them. So the max level is 60.

Response to The Reviewers Club 2005-04-12 19:34:18


Master Stalker - great lists.
but how am i supposed to fit on them!? haha.
i dont fit on the amt. of reviews list... because it only goes up to 3,000..
PS, how do you count or establish what QUALITY level somone has... are you going to go through each of their reviews? how would it be done...

cool memberlist, and yes when i started posting here i said 'looks like this is my new home.' :P hahaha.

Carmelhadinosaur: this topic has been discusssed before so i know all of the dirt! haha.
it's slightly jewish (or something), as "Ha" in Carmel's language means 'The' in certain contexts.
so his name "Carmel ha dinosaur" means "Carmel (his name) the dinosaur (his passion)" lol.
so yeh...
you pronounce it Carmel-ha-dinosaur pretty much :)
--------
sweet response idea aswell... but once again, i dont fit onto it! it only goes up to nearly 1/3 of the responses i have :( haha.

i've done my 10 for today, i may do a few more aswell :)

i figure its been over 12hours since my last post, so its not really a double post :)

today was a really good day for me, i wrote 19 reviews...
tip: start reviewing as soon as you wake up. not only do you have a fresh mind, you're so tired you cant think about anything else so you tend you review a lot more!
plus you've already reviewed by the time you realise you should do something with yourself :) so it works real good :)

teh responses are coming really slow!!
pissing me off..
i need another artist who responds to all, lol.
that list is a life saver :)

The 100th response is from _Guardian_ and he gave me a very nice response.

wow dude, your last paragraph fucking rocks. trust me, I follow with you with that. Numa numa is stupid, old, not funny, and definatly overused/ovverated. thanks for the review. Its good to gets reviews from BBS regulars.

Now that response encourages me to make more reviews that don't have much critism and will get me a response. I don't try and bitch at people and criticise their work. I just don't want bad responses.

Well, I wonder if I should stop reviewing for a few days for my 100 responses or try to speed up on reviewing.

Oh, and my response rate:

thats always sweet to get a milestone along with a response from a good guy, hah :)

Now that response encourages me to make more reviews

i went through that stage... sorta.
now im kinda burnt out, and i really enjoy reviewing on Retrogade...
but im still doing my 10 a day, yesiree :) haha.
also, the responses over here are starting to come really slowly... back in the day i'd get atleast 5, sometimes 8 or 9 a day from 20 reviews... now it would seem the NG community is because a lot further apart from each other, i've been stuck at 1,420 for like 3 days :(

thats sick. my ultimate goal was always to reach 33.333%, and i did it a few months ago, i was so happy :)
but it was a major jump from 33.31 to around 33.8.... so i never got a screen shot.
