Editor Recruitment
« on: February 09, 2019, 10:23 pm »
Becoming a Reviewer is a prerequisite to applying for Editor, so here is a link to the Reviewer Lane where you can apply for Reviewer. Please note that you only need to be accepted as a Reviewer to apply, the Mainsite badge is not a requirement.


- To apply for Editor you must publish 2 REVIEWS
  1 REVIEW on a game you feel is feature worthy, analyzing WHY you feel this way
  1 REVIEW on a game you feel is NOT feature worthy, analyzing WHY you feel this way
  (in both cases the game can be featured or unfeatured)


If you have been accepted as a Reviewer but have not yet been assigned the Mainsite badge, simply submit your reviews through the forums, preferably in the Reviewer Lane

Submit the links to your finished reviews in this thread.
Please note that deeper analysis is expected in all Editor applications, these SHOULD NOT be normal reviews


- Recruiters [ 6 / 6 ]

  Seanthechinaman
  Futuremillionare
  Lordeldar
  Jmc10
  Cyangaming
  Mat7772

Once you have applied, your application will be judged by the above Recruiters. If 70% vote Yes you will be ACCEPTED and subsequently added to the TODO List


- Reviewer Lane Rules APPLY HERE, although it must be stated that the re-application waiting period here is doubled

But I’m happy with all the fixes actually. 80% was too high, which is a point I had that I didn’t outline, but I’m glad it was fixed up. No crazy over the top tests. No absurd time limits. I also like the specification on what is needed to do.

Review #1 (non-feature worthy game) - http://forums.sploder.com/index.php/topic,342394.0.html

You should spend some of that thumbnail coverage discussing gameplay elements more integral to a feature, deep and well informed analysis is more important than the usual pillars of reviewing in Editor Applications. Aside from your application, the general consensus is that you don't have enough experience for the role, especially considering your past in positions of power.

You do however demonstrate understanding of some of the core elements of feature worthy games, and thus I wish you the best of luck in your next application.

(you may re-apply in 2 WEEKS)

I have enough experience, what I think you mean is that my level of trust hasn't gotten back up to a good enough number yet. Therefore I'll probably wait until I have my mod badge and a little bit longer to give myself more credibility. By then I'll probably have more features and whatnot too.

That voting was fast by the way. :P

"Experience" works as well. Your experience was essentially wiped after you were banned and created a new account.

As well as achieving more features, you should try to achieve some in different creators, understanding the feature standards of multiple creators will greatly increase your chances of passing.

I have to admit, I partially disagree; I still know the standards of a feature worthy game and how things work. That's like me saying that you're new because you created your account "Seanthechinaman" a month ago.

I would agree with going out of my comfort zone and getting features with other creators, but if I were to be an editor I probably wouldn't really feature games of other types. Maybe I will go for Arcade next.

It's more a matter of responsibility and trust than to do with your understanding of feature worthy games.

You're definitely on the right path, your genuine passion and influence over mainsite activity has already lifted the Recruiters' spirits around you.

Awesome, I'll probably reapply within the coming weeks. I want to finish my Arcade game (in attempt to get a feature with that creator) first. :D

Let's see if I can make my childhood dream come true this time.

I have these two old reviews from years ago when I was younger:

You can't apply with old reviews. Re-read the thread, and the Reviewer Lane Ruleset.
