Im going to turn to you guys for some real help here.

Recently I made a review (By authors request) on his movie. Long story cut short, he didnt like my review, he told all his buddies and they proceeded to rapid spam review all my art, spam my Private Messages inbox, spam my userpage and worse yet, they got my email address (It was featured in the corner of some of my art) and I havent checked the damage yet, but I can only assume spam is building up in my yahoo inbox as we speak.

For the last few days they have been 0 voting all my art, spam reviewing saying my art was utter shit and rating useless on all the positive and constructive reviews people had already made. Fortunately the reviews have been deleted and bans issued to most of them. There 0 rating persists and when the bans lift they may continue to spam review as well. Im not going to mention them by username, to avoid provoking them.

Frankly, If I was the shit artist who made crap art they were making me out to be in there reviews, I would never have been scouted in the first place. Now all of my art that had strong scores of 4-5 and were recieving positive reviews of 9's and 10's have been decimated. The spam votes have dragged down the score to 0-2 and it really isnt fair.

How do I want you to help? If you could just go to my art and then review my stuff constructively and give my art some fair votes, to help boost the scores back up then I would really appreciate it. They are still persisting to rating 0 so if you could rate each day for a while then it would help.

In time as the ammount of votes included in the voting average increase, the ammount of damage the spam ratings do will get watered down until they really dont do anything. In effect the more you vote fairly, the more likely the ratings are to stay at a fair level.

I appreciate any help, thanks in advance.

I've been trying my best to help ever since I saw your post in General, toast. I got bored and decided to check out the clock crew website, and I found that PatriotClock has a 6-page post about you, and it seems that there are some other things that happened after the review. Although whatever you said doesn't even matter when compared to the blatant harassment that you've received.

Well i'm going to agree that you are getting a bit of unfair treatment from the CC and even have a flash in the portal for you i've seen groups of users do far worse. They may be getting on your nerves now but things will calm down in due time. Just take it as a lesson learned and try not to tread on murky water in the future.

Ah, such a busy week this one has been.

Even busier next week for my birthday(woohoo) and my family is coming down here to celebrate it.

Might not finish all of them next week, but I will try my best : D

I'm in agreement. It's usually a standard to see some reviews from a user first but I think we can let it slide. You show prowess on the forums so I don't have any doubts that you would do a fine job reviewing here and there. Best of luck.

Glad it worked out then since I also have some quick voice acting to do later as well. Next week is last week of school forever!! Might take cake decorating class at tech college until fall classes start then do some actual classes of interest :-)

Here's the update. Had time to do it so early because I have no more exams. I feel so alive, yippee :3.

Another solid week, although I'll have to say that we were saved by SCTE3 and YumeSin. They both reviewed every request, so good job to them. Good job to Coop, Haggard and aliaspharow too for helping out. Stats are alright - by coincidence the Average per Member and Average per Request are both the same xP. Milestones-wise, SCTE3 is getting closer to 3,000 total points and dangerously close to beating me to it (but I don't think I'll let that happen). We're also getting closer and closer to 7,000 total reviews.

That said, quite a few members were inactive and we also lost two members, head2toewinner and saramary3. Bye guys :C.

That's about it. Enjoy the update.

Also I couldn't find the review you missed that sig in, hence the 0 next to 'Sigs Forgotten'.

And it's probably a good idea to post the club info now too...

NOTE - READ THESE RULES, EVEN IF YOU HAVE ALREADY READ THE RULES IN THE FIRST POST. THEY ARE AN UPDATED VERSION OF THE RULES IN THE FIRST POST AND THEY HAVE NEW IMPORTANT RULES!

Hello! Welcome to the new Review Request Club thread. This thread is meant to give the club a fresh start and make it a pleasant place to stay. In order to do this, it goes without saying that you must follow the regular BBS rules and read the C&C Advice Thread before posting if you are new to this forum.

This club aims to increase the exposure of the most under-rated Newgrounds music, art and flash artists. The other major purpose of the club is to offer the Newgrounds artists high quality feedback so they can constantly improve their work.

To the requesters:
Every Newgrounds user is allowed to request a review as soon as he submitted something. To get your work reviewed, don't post here without thinking but follow these few rules:

- Post a direct link to the submission(s) you want reviewed.
- Make no more than 3 Flash and Art requests between two updates (that's one week), and no more than 3 Audio Requests between 5 updates (that's four weeks).
- Please respond to reviews, reviewers like it and some of them are statwho... oh wait, interested in stats.
- Be patient. Due to the points system, you may not see reviews until up to two weeks after you requested, or if you requested more than 1 Audio submission, you may not see reviews on your second submission up until 3 weeks after you requested, and you may not see reviews on your third submission up until 4 weeks after you requested.
- Do NOT request without posting a link, be kind, reviewers are not robots.
- Do NOT simply say "Review everything" or just link to your profile.
- Do NOT request reviews for the same submission more than once.
- Do NOT request reviews for a submission with over 50 reviews.
- Do NOT request reviews for spam. Spam is only there to annoy, not to be critically analyzed.
- Unless you are a club member, only request reviews for YOUR OWN submissions.

To the reviewers:
If you want to join the club and complete requests, simply post in the thread saying you would like to join. Then, regular members will go through your reviews and determine if they are good enough to be part of the club. Your reviews are required to be helpful, developed and well-organised. If you need help with writing good reviews, read Fro's guide to writing helpful reviews.

Once you are accepted, you can start reviewing stuff. If you are a new member of the club, once you understand how the point system works, please post - one or two days before the update - the total points you've earned during the week. This is considered as a sort of application form, and if you fail to do so, you will NOT be added to the club.

Points System:
List updaters will keep track of each member's points in order to build a list. You don't need to post your points before each update but you can keep track of your score on your own so any error can be fixed. This is how points are counted:

5 points for a review on a requested submission (movie, game, art, or audio).
1 point for writing "Review Request Club" at the bottom of a requested review.
3 points for posting at least once throughout the two weeks.
5 points for referring a new member (must mention you in first post).
7 points for reviewing all requests/recommendations between two updates.

Club Updates:
Each Sunday or Monday, a list of all the members is created, counting up their points, featuring various stats and posting a list of requested submissions. Assuming you review the submissions in that list, you will get points for them accordingly in the following members' update, around a week later.

Don't forget the lists are built and updated by humans so it may be possible the update is delayed due to various real life reasons. If it ever occurs, don't get mad; calm down and wait :).

Frequently Asked Questions:

Should we have an FAQ?
I don't know. It kinda seems like overkill.

Why a new thread?
The main idea was to give the club a new and fresh start. Since the old one was flooded by requests and not updated any more, the RRC regulars thought creating a new thread would be best for the club.

Should I link to the club in my forum signature?
There's no obligation to do so, but it's certainly appreciated. Remember that you can put a high number in place of the page number in the URL and if that page doesn't exist yet, Newgrounds will take you to the latest page, whatever it is. For example, "http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/107 2042/999" will take you to the latest page of this club.

RRC Signature?
Yes, at the end of each review, if you want you can write down 'Review Request Club'. There is no obligation to do so, but you'll get +1 point if you put the RRC signature in your review. You can add anything you want to it, E.G.: *Review Request Club*, |Review Request Club|, -Review Request Club-, etc, but as long as 'Review Request Club' is clearly written, you will get the point. You are also allowed to add the sig in any reviews other than requests in this club, as long as you are a club member yourself. It's all the more exposure for the club, and it's very much appreciated.

+1 point if I put the RRC signature in my review... I'm not sure if I get it correctly.
You gain 6 points for a review on a request with "Review Request Club" in the end of it, as opposed to 5 points if you hadn't added the signature at the end. If it's still not clear, read this.

Does the Review Request Club review for non-NG stuff?
No. It must be an NG submission. If you have a non-NG submission which you would like us to review, then use your common sense and upload it to NG. Also, we will only review using the 'Write a Review' method on submissions. We won't send reviews by PM, review in your newspost or review in any particular thread of yours.

Do I have to review all the requests?
No you don't have to, just do your best :). Though completing them all will give you 7 extra points.

Which requests should I review?
If you want to get points for the next member's update, look for the latest requests list in the club thread and review the requests from that list. If you review any requests from various posts in the thread which would have been posted after the latest requests list, you will be getting points for the member's update after the next one.

can u review allz mah flashz guise? kthxbai.
No.

If you have more questions, feel free to post about it in the thread or PM a member and if your question is frequently asked, it'll be added to the FAQ.

---

That's all about the club, though this new version of the club couldn't be opened without mentioning the old thread regulars who have made it a great place to spend time. Kudos to Freelance-Magician for creating the original club and to FattyWhale for maintaining it for so long. Thanks also to Sonofkirk for starting this new thread and doing many updates.

Have fun!

Those lists were definitely intimidating. They took me several days of reviewing to get through. But on the bright side I actually had enough time to give critique on them even if it took forever for the feedback. Hopefully we don't ever get back to a point where it takes a month to give a review. I might not be able to give many reviews myself but the weekly system gives artists quicker feedback.
