This is the 2011 Review of the Week schedule. The same rules are in effect as last year, and these haven’t changed, though they may be subject to amendment or addition later on.

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 nor Felix's reviews will be counted in RotW. You're all very boring.

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).

The judge panel and schedule will be largely the same as last year with the exception that CD will replace Zipp, if he's still up for it. I do hope to throw my name in the regular rotation at some point, but as long as I’m still in school, I don’t think this will be possible.

The judges:
OD
bloomer
WQ
Jason

Substitutes:
Ben
True
Sportsman
Asherdeus
Joe

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

Thanks to everyone who’s been keeping this going. I really appreciate it and hope you can all continue to do this in the future.

Oops. Fixed now. Thanks.

EDIT: Can someone please sticky this and remove the old topic from the eight million stickied ones we have on this forum? Thanks.

Wolfqueen I can not do June: 05 – 11. I will be going to E3 again this year (hurray) June 7-9 and will not have time for RotW. I can switch with anyone else for that month or if someone else can cover that would be alright.

Thanks for letting me know. That's not for a while yet, however, so I can afford to wait to ask people about switching and such until it's closer to the date. And if it comes to it, I'll just take that week instead provided I'm in a position to do so.

Yeah, it is a long way off but I just found out my E3 reservation has been confirmed so I wanted to make sure I let you know about that.

Hopefully Will's not drunk, because there's a lot of reviews for his week. I hope he gets them all. :D

I prefer not to be in any consideration for RotW placement. Thanks.

Yeah...it'll be done either today or tomorrow. Was going to do it last night, but my home internet is running slow. Hoping it isn't more Time Warner problems, as they've been a real pain the last couple months. Could be a side effect of the really crappy ice storm we had last night. The thing that really sucked was that my connection was too slow to get on XBox Live, meaning I couldn't play the indie games I DL'd the day before.

So, if computer works good, I'll do it today. If home computer's still slow, I'll do it tomorrow at work...assuming it doesn't storm so bad today that I get snowed in or something.

A minor inconvenience.

Yeah, I understand. Thanks for letting me know.

That snowstorm's apparently supposed to stretch halfway across the country. It'll affect me, too. This is not going to be fun.

Tell me about it. I had to unearth my car out from under a sheet of ice to go to work today...and from what I hear, tonight's going to be worse.

I'm posting an Eternal Sonata review within a few minutes here, and I would like for it to not be considered for the next ROTW, as it is old and has had very little new added to it.

I would just like to thank everyone again who's been judging these and putting out their resuls in a timely manner. I know your task s often thankless, and I just want you to know how much I appreciate it.

Well, I just realized it's Friday and OD hadn't got his topic up, which isn't that surprising since I forgot to remind him, I guess, but still.

Unless he gets his up later today, I'm going to have the week of February 27 - March 5 up this evening. I'm not too happy about this, but I also can't really blame OD completely since I forgot to remind him.

Eek. This was supposed to be Will's week (technically ast week), but he's been busy with EmP's tourney. If he's not able to do this, would there be anyone else willing to do it?

EDIT: I have three posts in a row... Ew.

Is that March 13 -- 19? There are 9 reviews for that week (excluding Masters). I could put that together by Monday if no one else volunteers. I have read most of those already anyway.

No need to remind me. My week is from March 27th through April 2nd - due on April 6th (AM Pacific time - I'm in California).

I've read most of this week's submissions anyway in judging the Indie tournament. I wanted to wait until those results are released and weigh those into my RotW, since in my mind the purpose of RotW is to highlight exceptional pieces that wouldn't normally get attention and it'd be silly for the same reviews to win both the tourny and RotW.

But FOR SOME REASON THERE IS STILL A HOLD-UP so I think I'll do a best-guess RotW right now.

EDIT: Or I thought I had, anyway. Looks like them's are all pieces from JUST BEFORE my week began. Which would make sense, because the tournament ended the day before my RotW week.

Guess I'm just a little behind everybody else.
