It seems every day Im rejecting every review sent to the anime guild. I try to accept one review every 2 days or so but even then all that does is simply set off chain reactions of dissent from people with obviously ample free time to critique how a review was done, but lacking in the motivation to do one themselves.
In short Im changing my policy of fixing reviews with poor quality. Before i would fix obvious spelling errors and once I even bothered to change the overall ratings because while the review gave lots of insight to the game it did a poor job evaluating it numerically. Due to the angsty nature of the average Anime Guild visitor i have decided instead to maintain a higher level of quality which is a shame because i did want even the younger less articulate ones of you to express your opinion and be heard but alas. The grammar nazis have had their way with the guild as have the overly opinionated. Im keeping the bad reviews out. So when you send me a revew, copy and paste it first to a notepad (word preferably so you can spell check it.) so that if i reject it, you can listen to what i say (or if i say nothing then it truly was hopeless and you should try from scratch) and fix it.
On that topic one more thing I would like to mention, under NO CIRCUMSTANCES is it okay to send me a review for a game thats not released or made by YOURSELF. My god people this is a democratic channel in which players may freely communicate not a place to advertise for Naruto Rage of Ultimate Destruction 3 and how its going to be the greetest gam ev3r. Seriously, thats not a review.
Also if you give ratings for a review in any category below a 4 or above a 7 you better explain in detail what went wrong or what is so freaking good. Im so tired of rejecting reviews just because you thought it was run of the mill but gave it a score of 10-10-10-10. The Review function is absolutely wonderful but i really would like to see more thought be put into them. Okie dokey!
