There were no extras requests last week I think.

then again I have been doing the list very differently from how the other list makers used to.

It's not much, missing some vocals, but I'd appreciate the input, I haven't been able to churn out anything for ages.

Well, fuck. My last final (which is an oral exam) ended up being in French. I'm fucked in all ways, no way i'm getting into Uni. I can't possibly get the grade I need in this subject, way too difficult.

And I wont get any reviews done for at least 48 hours, probably more, because I'll be getting drunk off my ass after the final.

Hey crew. I just wanted to say thank you for your cool reviews on my songs, I really have appreciated your feedback through the years - It's helped me to improve my audio past what I could have done by myself.

This week YumeSin, SCTE3, and Soapbubble all left very solid reviews on my latest piece and it made me feel warm and fuzzy inside about my music--SO Thanks a bunch and keep up the excellent work!

Thanks for all the reviews on my art, they all helped a lot. I took them all into consideration and made myself another space picture. Its a thousand times better, more realistic, detailed and bigger than my previous one.

So I guess my request is to review this:
http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/toast edtoastytoast/crimson-peridot-sunset

Unfortunately Coop's review which was probably one of the more helpful reviews was made after I finished this, in a perfect world he would have reviewed before it was done at a point where I could change the picture with less hassle. But life is just unpredictable and far from perfect.

Thanks!


If in doubt then set it on fire because fire is A if not THE answer and solution to absolutely everything.

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!

Bah, did stuff backwards -.- ...

Re-read the rules and saw that you have to get invited in before you can actually post reviews under the club title...

I've already done a significant number of reviews for this week, and was wondering if I was apart of this before I did anymore.

Don't worry about it, your reviews are great!

Just post your points once you're done reviewing so I'll know that I should add you in the next update.

I'm lagging behind for this week. Really want to keep my 100% up. Well, the two-day ban really let me work on my final exam without interruptions, so that was good. All done now. Out in a few hours, can sneak in a couple reviews though.

Hi and welcome to the club!
Your reviews look pretty good. There are some very short ones in between, but most of them seem to be well written. Just leave out the short one liner reviews if you are reviewing requests for this club as our goal is to give artists the best feedback possible.

Since a new update is coming soon I suggest you wait until SCTE3 posts the next list of requested reviews and then start reviewing away.
If you don't want to wait that long you can simply start reviewing from the list he posted on page 183.

Just be sure to post your points, so Supersteph can add you to the list (the points system is explained in that long-ass post on every page). If you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)

Ended up getting drunk instead, celebrating the end of 13 years of obligatory school.

Crossing my fingers for the update to be on Monday, not Sunday. Might get the reviews done by then.

Sounds cool, never been drunk but my dad's ex-psycho girlfriend tried to get me drunk once. Walked out and got a ride home from some dude. She was an ass.

You know me, I just update the list whenever SuperSteph54 does.

Alright, did all the audio request of the week, which if the extra audio grants no points would leave me at 132 points for this week... but I have a question... does the extra seven points for ALL request are for the one just posted on the board, or everything that comes afterward until the next posting for request?

Thank you thank you, and yeah I'll be sure to give the requests something halfway insightful atleast.

Shall I just post here regarding the points or simply PM?
