I read a few reviews not that many really to be honest with you - you lot had the most interest and that sway the decision also.

Anyway as I said it is a learning curve I am worried about being too hard we have a chance now with the new WA3 site to set new standards.

Initially there will be a lot of discussion about what is 3 stars, etc, etc. And we will try and get an average. After a few weeks/months we will know a lot better what standards we have and it is be harder to deviate from them levels.

If someone obviously has realised a 2 star pack and a review person who is a friend gives it 4.5 stars then they jeopardize the credibility/existence as a reviewer so I cannot imagine too many doing that.

Obviously people will not be allowed to review their own packs, etc.

subtle_hint{
//just thought i'd maybe try and drop another subtle hint in here


plz review my packs they have been there for ages now since before winamp3 was released i've had so much time that i updated them with winamp3 compatible installers and that was 21 days ago. give them one star and say that they are a pile of cack... i don't care i just want ppl to be able to download them.

i think the best words would have been BLATANT HINT. or something like {{JUMPS UP AND DOWN SCREAMING FOR SOME ATTENTION}}

R E V I E W

M Y

P A C K S

or something like that...

*cough*

but i'd get complained at for being immature and for trying to bias the opinions of reviewers or for being an attention seeker.

besides continually plugging my work is a part of who i am.

Don't shamelessly plug your packs like that, it makes you look desperate.

Instead, be nasty and plug them unconsciously everywhere you. Put subliminal messages into your Avatar, write your posts so that they read "DOWNLOAD MY PACKS" when written backwards and enslave those that do download them into a trance of mindless wondering.

its hoi poloi and it is latin

my avs packs deserve huge amounts of viewing and respect thats why i plug them so shamelessly, they are really good and no one will believe me. (not quite yet up to unconed standard but give me a copule more packs and i'll be there). besides those three packs have been up there for almost two months now. just waiting to be reviewed, it annoys me thats all.

We are still geting the access to the review section on the website sorted out and then we will probably spend few more days getting some standard ratings sorted out. So give it a week.

In fact I decided to make your 5 pack a test case for backstage.

So I don't want to here another word about it. ok.

"Thank, you're in," ahs been there for years I think as some joke (or turned into) by the Orginal Niullsoft boys. They find it funny so know it willnot change.

now that is a good joke... (or a good excuse for those spelling mistakes:P)

and thank you, i won't mention it any more. my pack 5 is really varied in quality (i.e. some of it is cack, some of it is really cool) so i'd be interested to see what you give it.

(its not been uploaded to winamp.com yet just my 12&3 since it wont let me put anymore up yet. i guess i make them too quickly.)

nuff said.

I guess it's like:

Btw, isn't it borked instead of borken?

heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

dudes!!

if you say that the new AVS reviewers arent allowed to use leet speak, its kinda frustrating when the current ones do

quote{

Decent presets... somewhat basic tho There are a few really nice ones here; particularly the ones that utilize el-vis superscopes. The author's own 'Primary' is very nice; overall a solid pack for a first release. Some additional tweaking and experimentation would be nice tho.

}

"tho"?!!??!?!?


ok, this post sounds a lot more pissed off than i meant it to be

total props to the AVS reviewers (then and now) for the damn good job they do

but you must decied wheather or not to use leet speak (if i were j00 () i would opt not too)

really, im not as pissed off as i sound

however, some would even consider "r" and "u" and "tho" as leet speak

here is an interesting link concerning leet speak in todays schools

I'd think you'd use correct English as much as possible.. i.e. proof-read what you write and run it through a spell checker.

Oh and I'm a firm opponent of 'r' 'u' 'gonna' 'ain't' 'cuz' '2' etc. and I consider them 'l33t speak'. They make it harder to read, are non-standard and have no advantages... ironically, they're being used mostly by inexperienced computer users because the speed-up gain from typing 'u' instead of 'you' makes sense for them. And it's hell for foreigners who've learnt English through the 'net and don't know those abbreviations are not standard English.

I don't really see the point in the Slashdot article though. Of course the teachers should fail the students who use internet language instead of correct English. Since when did spelling and grammar lose their importance???
Languages do evolve, but there's no reason why specific slang (Internet/SMS speak) should be accepted as uniform English. Without a fixed set of rules, a language dissociates into dialects which eventually end up as different languages. For example, Latin dissociated into Spanish, Portugese, French and Romanian.
What's also important is that a language should remain fairly constant in time, otherwise it becomes hard to read older documents. For example middle English is pretty similar to modern English, but old English becomes very hard.


I also think native English speakers who still make common mistakes like confusing homonyms (your/you're, they're/their) are a bit pathetic. What the hell is school for??? I can spell my own native language near perfectly, and Dutch has got some very tricky bits.

Word XP's AutoCorrect feature is especially evil, because it corrects errors very discretely. That way people will think they're not making mistakes and won't learn.

this thread has strayed so far off topic.

okay, i've always considered leet speak (or hacker speak as it was introduced to me as 4/5 years ago) to be the use of numbers and symbols to create an alternative to using letters. i can see the logic behind considering stuff like r, u, 2 and tho leet speak since they are written slang which has developed mainly through the internet. i personally tend not to use these things too much but i have to admit that they do slip themselves in every now and again.

i apologise for not bothering to capitalise anything, thats partly due to my dodgy keyboard which makes the left shift hard to press (i'm not really used to using the right one).

by the way, unconed, a homonym is a word which shares its spelling with another but has a different meaning, two words which sound the same are called homophones.

Hmmm actually I thought of writing homophone (which is what I call it in Dutch), but I remember reading somewhere that in English, the correct term is "homonym".

It's logical though if you look at the etymology (greek):
- 'omoios = same
- nomos = name
- phonos = sound

Well anyway.
My only concern about this review thing is that will it be a objective review? I mean if your an avs artist and you review others work you might give them a bad review or a good review depending on the artist no matter about the work...
Example I consider Montana as a friend since we chat almost daily at irc and are both active in the avs community at deviantart.com
So im asking will he be giving me 4,5 start just BECAUSE? Or would he downrate my work if he personally doesn't like it or knowing basicly my whole avs history would he be disapointed when compared to the older works?
I guess im a bit sceptic about this whole thing, but im just asking...

No offense Montana this has nothing to do with you... actually it is about you, but that's not the point meaning that this post could be directed for example nic01 or degnic ( being a fellow ff member i would sure "blow the horn" twice as loud ), but they didn't make it as reviewer.

Waiting for your reply...
You're first post Tugg, I'm so proud of you.

I remember this thread, what i didn't remember though that it was my first post. Actually im pretty sure there's somekind of a mix-up here, because i remember my first post being something of a tech-support kind

I remember this thread

It shows how terrible the AVS submissions system used to be. Note that the time taken for my AVS packs to originally be reviewed is the same reason they dissappeared off of the servers years later and I had to reupload them...

Yup, years later and I am still complaining.

I submit my Preset loving mind and reviewing prowes to you.
I may be a newbie but i know what makes a avs tick and can give you a good review of presets. i'm usualy open minded.

As far as idiots go i'm not sure.
But as far as genius goes again i'm not sure. Now when it comes to imagination now thats another story.

You know, there are at least 30 people that I'd rather recommend for the position than you, and those are just the ones I can think of this second.

You're 4 years and a month late to apply for the position. Read the thread before you post. And even if we needed a new reviewer, and even if we thought you knowledgeable enough to do that, you'd still be rejected because of your spelling.


Please tell me you were kidding...
