This is bad ass, Ben.

Ugh. Don't make me find and link to that picture of tub girl. Remember: bad ass is ass that you don't want to look at. Badass is awesome.

Maybe I was actually pissed off at Ben for doing this and I meant that in a bad way...

... or maybe I just want to see you post that picture again.

Anyone mind if I wait til, say, Wednesday morning to post something?

I can get things done. I just arranged my time badly and then I kind of ducked responsibility for a bit when I realized I had RotW -and- team tourney judging.

Hopefully my comments will tide the TT playaz over for a bit in any case.

I notice Rand's RotW is coming up soon. I'd be open to cover his week again, because I enjoyed doing it the first time around. If anyone else wants to have a shot at it, though, I'd more than welcome it.

Did Schultz do his?

Because he's crazy late if he didn't.

Schultz never did his, no. OD says he'll have his up next weekend, which puts us two weeks behind in the ROTW. I'm this weekend, too.

I'm making up ground. Sorry for the delay. Tomorrow, I think.

Might be up earlier than the weekend. I just want to get this week's review finalized first. And progress is slow on that. Caught a summer cold and wasn't motivated to do anything game-related today other than desultorily play through a dungeon or so of Summoner.

Note to Ashcultz and OD: reading my above post, it comes off as accusatory, but that's not what I meant. I was just pointing out the facts.

I'd like to cover a ROTW if the opportunity comes up.

Janus, you can take Rand's July 31 if you want.

For the record.... the ROTW is coming. I'm not sure where we're at as far as missing weeks, though.

Schultz has missed August 1st through 7th. I mailed him ages ago about it because I was concerned with him being overloaded with TT, but he said he'd have it covered. Maybe he forgot or something.

This/Next (however you want to call it) week is a Rand week, though. Do we have anyone willing to take that? If not, I'll consider it, but I'm going to be busy with moving back to school this weekend, so I might have even less access for a few days after I get back up there (maybe... it really depends on how things go).

I think it's worthwhile to find a permanent replacement for Rand.

Sorry, something's come up so I'm not going to be able to do last week's ROTW.

Maybe it's time for an overhaul of ROTW? It doesn't seem to be getting much response these days, even from participants (ie. reviewers). I know we talked about this before and were in favor of keeping it going, but maybe it's time to revisit that conversation?

Maybe there's some other, more simple way, of recognizing reviews? Like if the site staff see a review that they think is particularly good, they can choose to feature it. Sort've an "editor's pick" thing, like what many new sites do.

There's nothing wrong with the influx of contributions regarding RotW at the moment. If it looks like it's slow, it's because of TT. The same thing happened last year. It's only been about a week or two since the tournament ended. I'm sure some people need a break.

I'm more worried about the people who are in charge of making the topics. Schultz hasn't responded to my second nudge, and he hasn't really been active lately, so I'm guessing he's MIA at the moment. I'm strongly considering doing his week for him despite the fact I have a review that week should I find time and if no one else wants to do it instead. I'm 95% certain that review wouldn't have even placed anyway.

(The week in question was August 1st through 7th)

Janus said he'd cover last week (August 22 - 28, I think), but he hasn't really been around lately either. But I have faith that he'll get to it eventually.

EDIT: There are 7 unique reviews submitted between August 22 and August 28 for Janus to look at. I don't know why you're worried about the actual number of submissions. (That's what it looks likke to me, anyway, since that was the issue last time.)

To fix the RotW staffing problem, we should really just ask to see who'd be willing to replace the ones who are slow or non-existent (Rand especially and maybe Schultz if he doesn't show up soon to claim his spot and explain himself.)

Not sure if you all liked my judging in the TT but if you need some help on these things let me know. I can't say for sure I can do anything the way you might want it but I am on the 'net everyday except most Saturdays and Sundays) and would be happy to help out.

Actually I am on the 'net everyday for/at work so my weekends are spent gaming off the internet.

I can fill in for either Rand or Schultz, permanently if required.

I still stand by the idea of giving users their own focus window and having the ROTW featured there. Give a little extra incentive for those submitting instead of just a forum that people eventually gloss over.
