Here's something.

By the way, we should make a "To review" and "Reviewed" folder.

Group is now NSFW. May want to change that. Doesn't seem right.

Shockwave— That's new. It appears me and Scoots have achieved Contributor status.

387185 Thanks for the advice.

I'm going to be honest with the overall structure of this group: while the idea is sound, I can see very bad people getting involved and mucking it up. So I'm just going to say: ensure that people are kept in line, that the group doesn't go overboard, as well as keeping the direction of the group solely focused on teaching others how to structure a proper review. While structuring a proper review is 100% opinionated on whoever is going to teach people, I expect some level of decency when you're doing it. Reviews are not a place to be an asshole. They're a place for intelligent criticism and ensuring that the (in this case) author knows what they did wrong and that they have some level of direction to fix it.

I'm not going to keep an eye on the group 24/7, but I can see bad apples already flocking here. Please keep that in mind. Thanks.
