Pat Buchanan.

Actually, I agree with Mesh. I used to be a critiquing fiend, but now, it's more just making sure everyone is keeping in line and stuff. I'm gonna be VERY busy this summer, but I'll try to critique more -- I'm hoping my motivation will return from senioritisland. XD

I'm kind of moody in that regard- I critiqued something about once every week (or every two weeks) for quite awhile- but then in these past few days I've been doing six or seven a day. Hmm. Perhaps I'm just odd.

If I see something that is worth critiquing I will critique it.

It pretty much evens out to once a day, maybe sometimes more.

I usually critique:

1. That story (or w/e) has hardly any crits or replies

2. That person asked me to crit for them

3. I'm completely bored and needed something to do

Mainly 1 and 2, though. ^^ Because if someone new just joins and posts something and no one gets crits, that's not a good impression of what this site can really do for them to help (help them improve, encouragement, etc.). It has happened to me before, and I refuse to have other people receive no crits as well, 'cause this site really is amazing.
I make my own policies.

This usually adds up to a few times a week. ^^

I don't know...
On the weekends, I do like, 10 critiques a day. :P But on school days I only get about 3-5 done. I usually go to the 'View unanswered posts' and review those but I have a list of people who want me to critique theirs...:roll: I should really be doing that now, but my fingers are stiff from being outside...
everything i loved
became everything i lost.

Baugh. I don't review as much as I would like to, admittedly. I don't have much time these live-long days....
