Ah Retrogade. That place doesn't interest me too much. I stopped depositing a while ago. I'll probably only go back there if I ever made GOOD photoshop pictures.
i hear that. i stopped depositing because i thought i'd never EVER go back, because i thought it was a bit stupid, and there was no need for me to spend even MORE time on sites like that...
but alas, i went back, started depositing, and now im in the top 50 for everything apart from batting average (i suck) and exp... im like 54 for exp.
oh, and im around 4th or 5th for reviews, so im happy :) hahah.
10 a day? That's not bad. I should try and make that much reviewsa day, but you know me trying to get a high chance of receiving a response.
yeh, i was the same... but then i realised i wanted more reviews in contrast to more responses.
trust me, the more you just start reviewing, you'll be suprised at how many responses you get....
but then sometimes you get let down because some authors are cocks! hahaha.
what you could do, is go through some of my last 10-20 reviews and review the ones with responses... because i've just done 14 in this past hour and ten minutes, and the other 10 (making 25 i guess) are from yesterday.
Yeah, that's true. I saw someone who stopped depositing at 10000 EXP and I've seen people stopping at 10000 posts for a few days. So I'll try and get to 101 or more responses today. I just hope Perry-Clock uploads another of his flash today since as soon as I submit my review, the next minute, I got a new response! :D
yahuh, i remember the guy that stopped at 10,000 exp... he was like 45th for exp... now he would be somewhere around 60.... stupid.
i've never... once stopped at a milestone.
i take my screen shot, save it, and move on.
I thought your response rate was higher than mine. O_o
nah, i never had an extremely high response rate, just a fucking enormous one for the amount of reviews i have.
Ouch! That's bad! Have you tried focusing at the newest flashes and see who seems to respond to every review?
nah, im over that. i dont care for responses anymore because i know that i still get quite a few no matter what i review.
i just do the stuff in the recent 50 now, and because im on holidays b/p'ing all day, now i can focus on the most recent 10-20, it's really nice.
Well, being on Newgrounds for hours (not sure how long exactly) and making 10 reviews isn't too bad. I find it good to get to every 100 reviews. Maybe because I have quite a small amount of reviews (maybe not small compared to so many people on this site, LOL).
you know what really works for me? if you leave reviews untill later going, yeh yeh i'll get em done no sweat, you end up seeing them there still at the end of the night, as blank reviews...
here's what i've been doing:
get up whenever i wake up, around 9 (i go to bed between 11:30-1AM, so iget lots of sleep)... the FIRST thing i do is review. because you're fresh, with nothing else on your mind and nothing else to do, you review really well in that state...
in an hour of reviewing i made 14 reviews... and that's it, thats all i need to do for 24 hours... you gotta be happy with that.
I hope you don't mean the Ghost Motel series. Violet-AIM seems to have stopped responding to reviews. :S And if X does respond to all reviews, then he will be an author that I will keep an eye on.
XwaynecoltX submits them though, so he responds... bleh, if im wrong, he still responds to all his other reviews for his other submissions.
he's got a busy life so they wont get done automatically, but he does go on responding sprees, haha.

Hey Marcus, I thought you were doing 20 a day. Let me guess, it got too time consuming huh?
dude :P i stopped making 20 a day around september last year, hahaha.
Thanks for telling us how to pronounce Carmelhadinosaurs name... that was really starting to get frustrating for no reason.
hehehe, no problem buddy :)
Could you do me a favor? try to round up all the people who were regulars in the Wi/Ht reviewers thread. That would help the thread alot. Especially if Joobie, RyanAn, and the others that may have joined after I left.
j00bie is being continuously banned from the BBS, and at the moment he's copping a MONTH ban from Ramagi who requested it from the admins...
if he's ever around, cherish the moment, hahah.
RyanAn also only posts very rarely, and KWAS works 5 days a week i think... and he stays out of home as far as i know..
so i would only be rounding up X, because all of the other reviewers are dormant... maybe apart from YoinK who's still around mostly i think.
About the judjing, I thought it would be easier to just call the 5th line in a review the quality line, that way all I, or who ever else wants to help me, will have to do is just skim down each page.
Did THAT clear things up?
oh dude, i know that the system was 5 lines = 1 quality review....
but i was just wondering how the fuck you would go about going through all of X's, mine, and other reviewers... it would take hours man.
and, if you're going to do it in segments, NEVER start from the most recent, always start from the first reviews, because the recent pages change all the time, its only the older pages that are never moved around if you know what im saying....
lemme explain real quick. if i make a review, and its say my 4,301st review, there will be 431 pages in my reviews, the most recent page will only have 1 review on it, the 4,301st review... all of the other pages are never updated once they have 10 reviews on them, they just stay the same... so do those first :)
as i said, i've done my 10 today, so im going to do a lot more on retrogade ;) haha. however this is only my first post on NG for the day so ill be haning around teh bbs, lol.
i better stop typing, by the end of this sentence... there around 450 characters left in the post.
