Yes, anything goes. Just not new releases.

Didn't see anything that say's otherwise but am I right in thinking all albums that appear on MMA are acceptable regardless of sub including non-metal etc?

One thing I've been thinking od doing for a while and this would be a good time to start, is I have a bunch of old reviews on RYM from when I started out and they're far too poorly written to ever bring over here. Instead, I've been thinking of going back and revisiting some of those albums and then writing brand new reviews in my current style. This is something I'd probably carry on with well after the challenge. Obviously, anything I do for this will be posted here first, and then over time I'll update my old RYM reviews with the new and improved versions.

My first planned review is still Sabaton, though, likely tonight or tomorrow, and that is one I've never reviewed before.

Edited: cross-posting is fine so long as the review is newly written. We are going to have to insist on reference links for reviews cross-posted during this event though.

Yes, good point. I'll edit that into the rules for this one.

I'll say yes since I presume you'll be posting them here straight away afterwards which makes it a non-issue, but I don't think we can accept anything from a backlog of reviews posted elsewhere, otherwise there's nothing to stop someone from theoretically turning up and dominanting the event while putting in no effort while it's actually running.

Question: Is it okay if I post my reviews on my blog first since this seems to be a bit of a free-for-all?

Yes please! I intend to post some reviews tomorrow (Sunday) morning, which will be Saturday night for the civilized world. I can stick them on a list later on.

If you like I will make a post on Sunday that publicly keeps track of the scores.

Should we chuck any reviews we do in a list here? I think it might make it easier to keep track of what other people are doing, so nothing gets missed.

I wasn't going to bother but might be an idea for you to at least just comment on any early ones in case of time zone differences.

If I post something too early because of the time difference, it still better bloody count!Wink

Are we putting a tag on these reviews, or not worth the trouble? As in, like this:

Since this is very close to starting here are a few extra details on the scoring, which I've volunteered to be in charge of:

This isn't a contest, the scoring is only there for us to keep track of events and see how well this idea works. If it does we may do it again sometime, though I expect the next Reviewer's Challenge will use a more traditional method.

As I won't be around 24/7, I think the best way for score to be kept track of if if I comment the points awarded on each review: that way in the event that I do miss one, poissibly due to it falling off the home page before I can see it, you can comment on your own review to draw attention to it again. That or just PM me. But do one or the other if I haven't commented on your review within 24 hours, if you believe it should have earned points.

I haven't fully checked my collection yet for suitable releases but I already have one power metal album lined up (and already writing for) and a few black metal ones all without reviews, two of them in the new Pagan Black Metal sub.

Yeah, and when I checked through power metal albums, I noticed a bunch of my favorites that had no ratings, so my goal is to get 4-5 of those done during the challenge, then continue working through them over time after the challenge, while still balancing it out with my promo reviews, of course.

I think I'm going to to focus on ones in my own CD collection that have either no or minimal reviews. I've already selected a few candidates.
