Doing this now before I forget. Jason has the last week of December. Everything I post below will be more or less the same as the other topic except for the schedule, which will reflect the dates in the year 2012. If someone could sticky this please, i would be most grateful.

The Rules:

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.

The judges:
OD
WQ
Joe

Substitutes:
holdthephone

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.

Is OD stepping down, or did he mean "final" ROTW of the year?

I'm pretty sure he meant 2011. If he were stepping down, he probably would've said something in the other topic or mailed me privately about it.

Thanks for putting this together, WQ. I agree with you. OD's statement was that he had just posted his last RotW for the year, but I look forward to (hopefully) seeing him post many such topics in 2012. With any luck, this will be a great year for RotW. I'm excited!

I totally forgot I was one of the back-ups for this. I will try and check my mail more often, but if a week ever comes up where you need me and I don't respond try finding me on Facebook or email me at stolenfate@gmail.com

I typically use those more frequently.

Yes. I was being clever by saying FINAL followed by "of 2011". Being clever like that is kinda my thing. At least as of now.

Can someone please sticky this and un-sticky the old topic? Thanks.

DON'T JUDGE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Uh...I'll have it tomorrow. Just a busy week for me at my real job, so I've been struggling to find time for doing things like this, my FF XIII review and other things.

Hey. If someone wants to switch weeks with me or a sub wants to take this past week, I'd be grateful. Long week of watching basketball and drinking and all that fun stuff, so the thought of sitting down to read reviews and grade them kinda makes my head hurt and my stomach all queasy.

I'd be happy to step in as a sub. Due today, right?

Thanks for the heads-up OD.

As soon as you can, ZIpp. The deadline is technically Wednesday, but the earlier the better. Thanks for jumping on this so quickly!

Alright, done! It's a little down in the topic line up because I "started" the topic a while ago.

I was ready to give OD some crap over being so late. I feel it was a fair assumption to jump to. Instead, I openly mock Jason, who I exect better from.

EmP, the week I'm supposed to judge ended last night at midnight. It is now 3PM the next day. I'm not as late as you seem to think.

Alright. Well, I know I'm sort of breaking my own rules in asking this since it's kind of late, but I really wasn't sure what I wanted to do until now.

But, would anyone on the site be willing to fill in for me? Or of the judges in this thing, would you be willing to swap roles for me? I'd really appreciate it if you can. I just don't know if I'll have enough time to get it done in time.

I already asked True, and he said he would, but can't get it started until Thursday. If there's anyone that wants to to it and can get it done before then, you're welcome to step up. I just don't think I can this round.

Sorry all. I know that looks really bad on my end, but there it is. =/

I'd actually like to see a True ROTW. It's been a while since he's done it. Otherwise, I'd step up myself except that I'm packed to the ends of my nights with the first week back to school.

While I want to step in, I'd rather see True do an ROTW. Not just because I'm lazy, either.

Nevermind, figured it out even as I hit post. Just a slip of the mind.

I'm looking for someone to cover this week that just ended on Saturday the 21st. Someone who isn't me. I'm fairly busy right now but it's more than just that. My head isn't in the right place to do a good job this week, so I'd appreciate a guest person assuming the duties this time around. Any takers?
