@Meandbooks, I believe only reviews from your join date onward would count!

@AdrianMoon - Yeah, I figured. Thanks. :)

One last question - for the Last Reviewer Standing Challenge, what if the person has dropped out of LMS but is still posting chapters semi-regularly?
We're all stories in the end.

@Meandbooks, ah, I thought I had already answered this question.

If the person is still posting and their novel was previously a LMS novel, it would still count!

Somehow my post that I was keeping track of things with... has disappeared... and I didn't delete it on purpose. So confused. I think that maybe I MIGHT have left it open while editing it and then forgot to re-submit it..?

Or is there a 'post removal' penalty if you give someone incorrect grammar advice... o.o
I hope it's a good joke because otherwise I'll have got it for nothing...

The R.E.D. Newsletter: Monday, February 8th, 2016



As always, please subscribe to this thread!

This week we have an interview with @Carlito! Interview is under the spoiler.

Spoiler! :
Contest: So, Carlito, what motivated you to join RED?

Carlito: Well, I love to review, and I love a good challenge :) I thought it was a really clever contest idea, and even though I knew going in I would not be able to review every single day, it still sounded like fun.

Contest: What are your general tips for reviewing? Any articles or neat little things that you'd like to recommend?

Carlito: I would recommend reading a lot of published writing and while you read, analyze it a bit. What did the author do to make you like x? What did the author do to make you dislike y? How did the writer achieve z? What works for you in stories and what doesn't? Everyone has different styles and tastes, and there is no right or wrong way to write.

Then apply that to reviewing by being honest with the writer (no one can improve if you're not honest). Tell them what you think they're doing well and what's working for you. Then tell them what you think they could improve on and what's not working for you and try to give a suggestion for how they can make it better.

Also always try to explain yourself. If something is working for you, try to explain why. If something isn't working for you, try to explain why.

Contest: What's the best review that you've ever read on YWS?

Carlito: I don't know how I would ever pick! There are far too many exceptional ones!

Contest: What's the best reviewing advice that you've ever gotten?

Carlito: Write the review you'd want to receive.

Contest: Also, are you partaking in any of the challenges in the newsletter?

Carlito: I am reviewing an LMS novel (Shaping Faith) and I will try to do the other as well :)

(Like I said, I love a good challenge :P)

Contest: Thank you so much for this interview! Do you have any parting words?

Carlito: No problem! Off to review! :D

The R.E.D. Newsletter: Monday, February 15th, 2016



We had an interview with @Holysocks this week! Feel free to check it out under the spoiler.

Spoiler! :
Contest: What's the best review that you've ever read on this site?

Holysocks: Well, I'm going to go with the first review I ever received because it really gave me some good foundations for writing that I never had before. The review was by Morrigan!

Contest: Any favorite articles about reviewing?

Holysocks: I mean, the new one by Kyll is pretty awesome, but the one I found really helped me, like got me actually reviewing in the first place, was just the simple YWS Critique Sandwich. It's a clear, attainable formula that makes reviewing seem really easy- or at least it did for me.

Contest: Favorite type of work to review?

Holysocks: I guess fantasy chapters. I really like reviewing articles/essays though because I get to focus on the content a lot more and less on technique and method... or at least that's how it feels.

Contest: Do you have a reviewing role model?

Holysocks: Yes. I'd have to say that PiesAreSquared is definitely a reviewer I've admired. He just put so much into his reviews.

Contest: Any type of motivation?

Holysocks: Personally what gets me going is, well, it's exciting to reach new numbers! I know that's kind of lame, but then I get really excited because reviewing is a freak'n good skill to have, and here we have a site that trains teenagers to basically be critics- only in a way that helps people! And I just think that's amazing, if that makes sense. Not sure if that's incredibly motivational though.

Contest: Any ending comments?

Holysocks: I'm really finding R.E.D is helping me figure out my reviewing schedule, and it's fantastic! The formula that you're aiming for as much reviews as you can, but then having a nice, loose - yet somehow super easy-going guidelines/deadlines is really working for me (so far).

Other than that, best of wishes to everyone else!- and for goodness sake, have fun!



Rankings:

1. @Meandbooks with 51 reviews, including the added bonus from Hedge Clipper reviews.
2. @Lareine with 33 reviews, including the added bonus from Hedge Clipper reviews.
3. @Lightsong with 27 reviews.

Congratulations to you three!

The R.E.D. Newsletter: Monday, February 29th, 2016



I was on a bit of a break this week, so I didn't have the opportunity to send anyone a message about it! However, we'll hopefully have an interview next week to look forward to!

Rankings:
1. @Meandbooks with 129 reviews, including the added bonuses from challenges.
2. @Lareine with 73, including the added bonuses from challenges.
3. @Lightsong with 40, including the added bonuses from challenges!

Congratulations to all of you, because those numbers are impressive.


Ongoing challenges:

The Last Reviewer Standing: This is a challenge where you review more than ten chapters of a novel that has been posted for The Last Man Standing contest. The award for doing this might be something extra to decorate your joining post with, an interview, a small short story, or a cute YWS gift. Which prize you might earn is decided by a randomizer.

Spoiler! :


Team Tortoise: Right now, YWS is hosting an event called Team Tortoise. The goal is for one review a day for the month of February. If you're participating in that and RED, why not earn a snazzy square for it? Link to the Team Tortoise club!

A Splash of Color: The goal of this challenge is simple. Try to include color in your reviews with BBCode! This is pretty useful when using BBCode in general, so have this link! Also, thanks to @Lareine for making this snazzy square.

Weed Whacker: Since the Green Room works from October and November have been mostly cleared out, I'm introducing another badge. This one is for all the Green works posted on December 1st to January 31st. Any reviews you do on those will count as double, if you remember to include the name Weed Whacker next to the link!

Other small things:

I can't count reviews unless they are listed under the spoiler, just to let you all know! If you could update them on Sundays so that I'd have the info by Monday, that would be great. Please also go through your reviews and tally them up, so that sending out the newsletter info will be easier on myself!

-

An explanation with the donation system: basically, if you don't review for five consecutive days, then the 50 point penalty per day would come into account. (At the end of those five days, you would owe 250 points.) Some people, however, are choosing to just donate 50 points per day missed regardless of the five day leeway. If you have any questions on the system, then just feel free to ask.

-

Any reviews on these four Green Room works will count as double, just be sure to mark them apart from the rest on your post!

1. The Chronicles of a Public Bus (part 2.13)
2. The Aderyn: Chapter 2
3. Where it's Always 1895
4. Muster Heroes – Quicksave 15

Don't be afraid to send me a message if you have any questions, comments, or concerns! I check my inbox often and will respond to any questions sent my way!

As always, quality over quantity.

@Contest: Does that mean I've to donate 500 points for lack of reviews within ten days?
