    Posted: 31 Mar 2018 at 2:46am
In this thread I shall be keeping track of the scores that each reviewer receives during the April Reviewer's Challenge. The event starts tomorrow, April 1st and will run across the whole month.

As a reminder, every reviewer is automatically entered into this event just by posting Older Release Reviews (2016 or older). The aim is for us to get as many unreviewed or minimally reviewed releases reviewed. The scoring system is as follows:

3 points for reviewing an unreviewed album.
2 points for reviewing an album with one prior review.
1 point for reviewing an album with two prior reviews.
0 points for reviewing anything with three or more prior reviews or for reviewing New Releases (2017-2018).

There is the caveat that I will be using my discretion about whether a review deserves to get points even if it falls into the above: the minimum length is two paragraphs and they must otherwise be in line with the site guidelines for reviews.

While there is no prize for being the most prolific reviewer, there will be a shout-out on social media for the best work as well as the most prolific reviewer at the end of the event, based on score.

You can also use this thread to give me a nudge if I've missed your review for some reason. I will be commenting on each that earns points with how many, so keep an eye on the New Site Interactions list.

Scores:

Okay since Patrick has started, let's say everyone else has the go ahead even if it's still the 31st where you are.

Okay, added to your tally.

This is me done for this evening. Anything posted until I come online tomorrow will have to wait to get its points added.

I really hope that you've just had these reviews written in a month backlog or something, because otherwise how do you write so many reviews in such a short period of time? I wish I could crank out that many reviews while retaining quality.

The two compilation reviews I started months ago and didn't finish. The rest I've written this week. I wrote the Extra Hot Sauce and Megadeth ones in one go yesterday, but the rest have taken a couple of sessions. It's just about getting down what you think and then tidying it up later.

And having worked as a reporter in a daily paper, I've got reasonable discipline when it comes to sitting down and writing. Used to average about 3000 words a day doing that, but it's very different (i.e. easier) writing from notes and interviews than writing something off the top of your head.

My final review for the night: 

These were all written back to back in one session, btw. I usually don't do that, but I was so inspired to write about Sabaton, it kinda just happened. I'm busy tomorrow, so my Coat of Arms review will likely have to wait until Monday or Tuesday. We'll see.

I usually start a review and sometimes slowly work on it, or just keep it sitting on my computer still waiting to be finished. Speaking of, my first review for the challenge is actually one that I started last year and finally finished tonight:

Don't think I'll be catching Patrick up unless someone out there knows where he lives and can nip round and cut his internet connection before he does anymore. Wink

A long review for 1 point. And just so everyone knows, I asked Khaliq before I wrote this review. He mentioned it in the lead-up to the competition, and I didn't want to rain on his parade by getting in and reviewing it before him, but he told me it was OK.
