I've decided to make a new topic because the old one's too cluttered and, quite frankly, has gotten a bit too complicated. I'm posting it so early in the morning as opposed to waiting until a little later to as to prevent any further delays and confusion. I think I strayed a little too far over the line of 'waiting too long' with this anyway. That said, should Schultz show up and explain himself, I'll try to fit him into the schedule, as adding a fifth man has become an option that I'd wish I'd realized sooner.

Before I post the new line-up, some general notes and things to keep in mind:

1: All reviews submitted during a given week are eligible for RotW.

2: An RotW will always take place provided there is at least one review submitted for that week. A writer shouldn't be punished just because no one else submitted for a given week.

3: Neither Zig's nor Masters's reviews will be counted in RotW

4: All judges have until Wednesday morning of the following week to post their topics. If they can't meet this deadline, then appropriate notice should be given, preferably a few days in advance if possible.

5: RotW topic makers should post the dates of their respective week in the topic title so as to prevent confusion when someone wants to go back and re-read that topic.

6: Winning reviews will be marked featured the next day and will (most likely) share the focus window for a few days (unless EmP steals the focus window).

That should cover the basics. Anything I missed will be added accordingly.

The judges:
OD
bloomer (replacing Rand)
Will (replacing Schultz)
Jerec

Substitutes:
Ben
CD
True
WQ

If I missed anyone in either list, let me know and I'll update accordingly.

Thanks for all the interest everyone showed here. I really appreciate it. And I'm sorry things got so confusing near the end there.

I thought you didn't want it anymore! lol I don't have a problem modifying the schedule accordingly if you want, though.

I think Zig just made my RotW topic invalid. Only 5 reviews, 1 zig, 2 emp...

Ignore Zig

Do what you can

Give EmP the win!

I should have made an alt account to say that, really....


For us. For them. For you.

Don't worry about it Jerec. Even without Zig, there's still three reviews submitted for that week that can be put in order, so go ahead and do it. I'm actually making that another point in the "general notes" thing in the first post.

EDIT: The "new" rule is now point #2.

I wholeheartedly approve of Rule #2.

Though, I'll say that I wouldn't award a win if the sole review is pretty bad.

If Jerec wants in, please add him, as it reduces everyone's workload! The dreams of more than 4 people being on the permanent roster are close to being realised.

I also have a question. Are the dates on the roster 'Your week starts here' dates or 'Your week ends here' dates?

Jerec really needs to just come out and say 'yes, I want the job again" because I really can't tell with all this dancing around.

And the dates are "your week ends here" dates. I actually meant to add the start dates in, too, so it was clearer but I hadn't gotten around to it yet.

Seriously, though, glad to see I'm on the schedule. Please no more confusion!

Wow. If we don't get any new reviews today, bloomer's going to have an easy time of things. True will be winner by default, lol.

On that note, I've amended the schedule to reflect the change due to Zipp's mistake. I've also added a new note about including the dates of your RotW in the topic title. For almost everyone, this isn't an issue, but recent events have made the note necessary. (It's note #5 now).

Note, too, that October will be my last ROTW. Someone will have to do my November date. Sorry!

Jerec: The deadline for your week is almost up. How are you doing?

On that note, I'd also like to add that I would appreciate it if whoever's judging during a given week post somewhere in this topic that they know it's their turn and that they're on it because otherwise I tend to assume they forgot and so get kind of antsy. >_>

Zipp: Your resignation at the end of the month will be accounted for in some way or another. If no one can or wants to take your place, the schedule will just have to be condensed again.

He did. And I'll cut him some slack for that. I just wasn't sure if he forgot.

ah, sorry. I'll get to it soon. Moto judging took it out of me, and some other distractions in real life.

Important question, Zig. I know you don't want to man up and enter RotW, but could you check with Zig2 to see if he wants to? Either way it doesn't matter since I already read the review anyway.

Do you need to feel threatened or scared for your other personality to emerge or something?
