Well, the New Year is almost upon us, so I better get this done now. Everything is still the same since the last update. If anyone wants to judge full-time or permanently take my place, please let me know and I'll gladly throw you in the schedule.

Before I post all the rules and the new schedule, I'd like to thank all of you who have made this event possible. Especially the current judges who have stuck with this for as long as they have.

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
holdthephone
Joe

Substitutes:
zippdementia
wolfqueen

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.

Hey, guys.

I know it's late notice, but can someone cover my week? I'm going to be unexpectedly busy this week, so probably won't get it done until much later. If no one can do it, that's fine; just know it might be later than usual.

Thanks,

I'm a qualified expert in this type of shiznit. I'll do it.

I'm not dead... so I will plan on trying to get mine out by Wedsnesday. However, I'm really strapped for time and motivation to do this anymore, so if anyone wants to take over my spot, please let me know. I really don't want to have to cut the rotation pool down to two, as that would be too much work for either Joe or OD, and, frankly, is unfair to both.

Thanks.

Awesome. Thanks for doing this so quickly. Does this mean you want to take over for the duration of the year, too?

Heh. Okay, well, I'll schedule you in for the year, but if you change your mind, let someone know. I'll still be fluttering around but probably not enough to catch something like this in time.

Anyway, thanks again.

Hey, if one of our additional spare RotWers wants to do me upcoming one (ie: the one covering this week's worth of reviews), I'd be much obliged.

Things are still hectic with being shorthanded at work and I'm swamped, so if I do it, it might wind up being a week late again and I'd rather avoid that sort of shenanigan if possible.

So, for this past week, only Pickhut submitted a review, so yeah, no point in doing an actual topic just to give him a win over imaginary voices in my head.

Does his review get bumped up to this week's stuff (where at least I'VE been busy!!!!) or what? Not fair to really screw a potential winning review over because it was the only one submitted during a week, at least in my mind.

In that case, yes, the review would be moved to the next week... but there's still time for more people to contribute this week and Saturday often sees a new contribution come through. I see your review just went live, so all we need is at least one more contributor!

Yeah... our flow of reviews lately is anemic. I'll be doing what I can to improve that once I have better resources and more gears in proper motion.

Oh, I mean for my doing ROTW week of Sept 8-14, as Pick was the only person who submitted anything that week. I did see my two reviews now brings this week up to three reviews by two people, so that's progress!

And I'll have another one next week, since I didn't have time to finish my X-Men Legends II one.

I was going to suggest combining your week with phone's, OD. That way you should have enough unique names, I think.
