Okay so now that BYOND Anime is officially bloated with too many game submissions, I have talked with Tom and we will be having a script run on the guild to prune out all inactive hubs (i suggested 6 months inactivity). Also, ill be editing the current mainpage to replace "A note on quality" with something more relevant, BYOND Anime guidelines for being accepted. It used to be all inclusive, but after some discussion I have been given the go ahead to actually put some personal judgement into which games arent quality enough to be accepted.
So you'll see the criteria for being accepted posted sometime soon. Also I may decide to do what I did for the review system, get a few volunteers who can help investigate pending games and make sure they meet requirements. Chances are game acceptance wont be done "whenever" anymore it'll be done on a once a week or once every second week basis and a list of all the games waiting will be posted in the Anime Forum for these individuals to report on. As BYOND gets bigger, and as BYONDAnime Reached 1000 games, its become important to realize that spam hub entries have watered down this guild and sapped some of the motivation to be a part of it. Needless to say that with higher standards comes higher need for unbias criterion for being part of the guild, and that criterion will not be as strict as most of you would probably hope for but it will be universally applied and let me guarantee you that most of the popular games in BYONDAnime, rip or not, will most likely meet them.
