That's right. We're back.
Some of you probably remember the Review League, an ongoing event meant to encourage a lively community of writers and readers on the Bulbagarden forums. After some adjustments here and there, we're bringing it back!
For those who don't know, the Review League is a game where you can collect points for leaving reviews on fic in the Writer's Workshop. The basic guidelines are as follows:
1.) Review any story posted in the Writers Workshop. If you comment on multiple chapters in one review, it's recommended that you point out in the review exactly which chapters you comment on.
2.) Post the link to your review in this thread. You don't have to post immediately. You can post up to four reviews at any one time.
3.) Based on the guidelines below, calculate how many points you've earned with your review(s). It helps to say what criteria earned you the amount of points you calculated, but it's not required.
Prizes will also be making a return in the future, so keep an eye out!
Ways to earn points
- Reviews must be at least 100 words to qualify for the Review League.
- Every review automatically nets you 2 points.
- For every 250 words put into a review, you receive 1 extra point. If an author replies to your review and you continue to post and discuss their fic with them, you can add the discussion posts toward your word count. You would not get base points or any other additional points for replies, just word count points. Please don't write words just to inflate the word count. Your reviews should have some substance to them.
- For reviews done for the review game, you will receive 6 extra points.
- For reviews commenting on a fic in the Workshop Archive, you will receive 2 extra points per review.
- Review events will offer opportunities to earn extra points. Keep an eye out for future events!
- For reviews done for the Weekly Review Prompt Thread, you will receive 4 extra points.
Look off in the distance! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman! No, it's the handy dandy, 100% not FDA approved Review League leaderboard! << Right here, in this link. A fancy little Google Spreadsheet where you can see how many points you have, and where you rank among your fellow reviewers.
