Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread
As much as I would love to have some designated reviewers for me lol, I think that idea of Jon Staley is not feasible. I mean forcing people to review someone's BTB should never be the solution. One more thing I would like to point out is that the biggest issue currently is that the newcomers are not getting the stage to showcase their storylines. Most of their reviewers are those 'Review4Review' buddies and a large part of the forum which has been here for long does not read their BTBs. In that case, any tournament or awards thing is always ignoring those BTBs coz most of the people who vote dont read those BTBs.
In context of this, RickRoll'd suggested something like having a separate awards for newcomers or something on those lines and got shut lol, I believe before every tournament or awards thing, everyone interested should give a preview of what has happened in their BTBs in brief as promoting their BTB or filing their EOI for the tournament thing. Also, like the last awards was for whatever had happened for 3 months before that time, i believe a preview of whatever has happened for the past 3 months in ur BTB can come within 3 paragraphs in a brief read. I am not saying that the newcomers deserve nominations, even after this mostly they might not get nominated, but atleast their BTBs will catch some eyes, or maybe some of the people would personally like what happened in the last 3 months and might continue to follow that BTB.
This will increase participation in the awards thing with more people voting, coz once people file their previews of their BTBs they will be more active in the whole awards process as they will have a stake. This will also streamline the reviews thing, eliminating installing a forced review thing. And last but not the least, it will increase motivation and participation in the whole forum and blah.
