Just to clarify, Zipp--earlier you say, "If, by Tuesday..."

Does this mean before Tuesday, or on Tuesday? Because sometimes I just need to sleep on things & hope my decisions make sense. Maybe it's best if I start placing critique topics for nonwinners a bit earlier so potential replacements know they don't need to be on call.

Don't worry too much about poking before then, though--I can let the site administrators know if there is a real emergency, and I'll do so Sunday/Monday. I definitely don't want to be part of RotW slippage, but on the other hand, I enjoy taking my time with the reviews--since the writers obviously take time themselves--and often Sunday is my day to take care of personal stuff.

I just hadn't seen you around in a few and with all the recent confusion over whose turn it was... well, I thought it best to throw out a friendly reminder.

Note to others: I wrote a review for this week and I'll likely write one for next week (if not, the week after). The thing is, my probable next review is God of War, which is a massively-covered game. My review for this week is Tecmo Secret of the Stars. I'd care about getting potential feedback on that one more than God of War due to how I had fun writing it and wonder if others have had fun reading it. So if anyone wants to switch slots with me, let's do it.

Hm... Hey, Zipp - do you and OD want to trade places this week? That way he can get possible feedback for his review and the week in question can be put up sooner.

Do we have a permanent replacement for Rand yet?

If you're down with that, Zipp, I am. I've been very swamped this week and haven't had time to get around to it. Well, I initially had time today, but ate too much Taco Bell and just want to crawl under my desk at work and sleep it off.

17 reviews so far this week, and there's still a couple of days to go. Who is doing it anyway? First post still says Rand.

Dunno. We're still on that alternating thing between the reserve judges. Since botb you and I have reviews submitted this week, I vote Will does the RotW instead, if he's up to it (or even sees this message).

One of the first ROTWs I've been eligible for in a long time and it's going to go missed?! I can't allow this to happen.

Maybe we should get some new blood in here to take over as a permanent replacement for Randxian (still not quite sure why he just left...)? Is anyone up for doing an ROTW for last week?

I would, but I also have a review in there. >_<

Also, whoever does it, there's 20+ reviews. Bloody huge week.

The problem is that most regulars have a review eligible for that week.

What if Ben does it? I don't think he submitted something.

I'd volunteer to do it, but let's face it: that would end in heartbreak and disaster and a hefty amount of metaphors.

Well, he better make up his mind then because I'm HGmailing Ben right now.

Hey all! I just read WQ's HG Mail.

I'd be up for filling for whatever week is needed right now. I've been told that June 20th-26th needs doing, but that seems to be done already by Zipp. I assume it's June 27th-July 3rd?

Could someone clarify that for me? Thanks.

You are correct.

Awesome. If no one has any objections, I guess I'll get to it. I'm slightly busy on Friday, and there are 23 reviews for that week, so I'm thinking the RotW will be up on either Sunday or (more likely?) Monday.

Yeah, sorry about that. I just mailed you the correct dates, but you already caught my mistake thankfully. Thanks again for agreeing to do this. We all really appreciate it.

This is bad ass, Ben. I was just coming in here to say, with a sigh, that I would do it again for the sake of everyone who worked hard to get a review in that week. This was rather a nice surprise, I must say.
