Maybe make a thread in the music lounge section when the competition starts for those involved to post the links to their reviews. That way it wouldn't interrupt regular reviews but it would be somewhere easily seen.

^ just wondering. This one seemed to go more smoothly than before becauses there are 10 places for reviews now. i guess if a newbie snuck something in there it wouldn't be the end of the world anyway. just a thought :)

Sorry that you feel that way Mike. And yes normal posting has now resumed. 

We have tried to do each challenge differently to find a balance between allowing it to be seen and not disrupting other reviews. Unfortunately there is no perfect solution to that. I personally feel that this last one worked best in that respect. 

Next time we will perhaps try setting the RC over the course of a whole month with everyone posting as soon as they are ready, with no set window for it beyond that, in effect posting the RC reviews like normal reviews. Of course we would lose the feature of them all on the front page at the same time, but if the MMA magazine is a success that's less of an issue as there will be full coverage of the RC in there. 

That is of course if we don't even decide to change the format entirely for the next challenge. I do have some alternate ideas that may be interesting to try as a one off.

I don't know guys, I was only an observer in this but I quite like seeing all the different opinions come in fast. And it was just three days when last time I think was closer to a whole week. And it was annouced well in advance this time to give people time to plan around it. I wouldn't personally consider that too disruptive.

Nah, I'm just posting my opinion on the topic.

To be brutally honest, I could quite happily live the rest of my life without ever seeing another Buckethead review.LOL I wouldn't mind so much if you didn't drop them all at once and spaced them out a bit.

Yeah, I reckon we don't need to stop submitting other reviews during the competition any more, since we have 10 reviews on the front page, and the competition reviews are also labelled as such.

My personal opinion is that these kinds of contests might possibly alienate anypotential newbies. Why would we want to do that? Is there a way to create a valid publicity without interrupting the flow of things?

I can sort of see how the album ended up getting overlooked because whilst I think there's a lot it does which is really interesting, it isn't enormously front-and-centre about that. So thanks, Adam, I'm glad I didn't miss this one.

Thanks for organising it Adam. Thumbs Up

This was a good one. I hope subsequent reviewer challenges are this good.

I'm limited on how pretty I can make it look (the cover is a select of artist logos), but its the content that counts of course. Shouldn't be long now.

As always I enjoyed reading all of the different opinions on the album at hand, and I can't wait to see how the magazine looks.

I did say Tuesday for other reviews to start up again but tomorrow is fine if you have something waiting to be put up - all these reveiws will be presented together in the trial MMA magazine, which I will finish putting together now that the challenge is all up.
