New Reviewer 13: Lost in Reviews

17 Jan

I’m going to run out of modified movie titles to use for these pretty soon. Anyway, a few more bits and pieces reviewers. More out of the ‘add’ bookmark folder and a few others I’ve run across. My eternal quest for all the ponyfic reviews continues. Except, you know, the ones I’ve decided not to add.

Big Master Review List stats: Total Authors: [1823], Total Stories [3984], Total Reviews: [6154]


First off, a reviewer who only got one set of reviews off before moving on to other things. Still, it’s text based ponyfic reviews and that’s good enough to get on the list. Just, you know, in the misc column. Here’s the reviews by Ghost Reviewer.

  • Rise from the Ashes: Book 1 – Canterlot by Sparklecat
  • “They’re Not Touching You!” by JMac
  • Gimme Shelter by zyr1987

Other reviewers for the misc column:

Sirius_Face:

  • On the road to Justice. by SugarHoneyIceTea123

Majin Syeekoh:

  • Berry Punch’s House Can Talk by Kanzlerin Maud
  • Essenza di Amore by Cerulean Voice
  • Twilight slowly reads a book by JumbledThought

Even though I swore off comment reviews after the trial further down, this was light enough that I decided to go with it anyway. So, without further adieu, Orient Express Explorers.

  • Mortal by Benman
  • A Tale of the Sun, Moon, and Stars by DalTRS
  • The End by shalrath
  • Quizzical by JMac
  • Feels Like the First Time by CarcinoGeneticist
  • Decisions by hester1
  • First Times by Lurks-no-More
  • Breaking Rarity by Flutterwhy4
  • Fire Spores by applecinnamonspice
  • Twilight’s Forfeit by Fiddlebottoms
  • Celestia and Luna’s Completely Average Day by Nyronus
  • Certain Advantages by The Descendant
  • In Memory Of by Obselescence

 

In honor of the Burraku_Pansa PR campaign a few days ago, I decided to add WRITE to the big master review list. It’s less than 300 stories after all and will give me a nice metric for hunting down in-comment reviews. Keeping track of new reviews is going to be tricky, but it might be just as easy as asking to join the group. Of course this is more for future readers than the authors themselves, since comment reviews will just give them a notification when they pop up. Which also means that putting them on the master list bookshelf is even more just advertising it than usual.

Huh, this will also bump the total reviews on the list over 6000. Another big round number that was sorta a milestone in the back of my head. Also, fun trivia fact. My spellcheck thinks that Burraku_Pansa should actually be Kookaburra_Pansy.

Okay, I’d forgotten how mind-numbing adding a few hundred entries onto the list is. Brain is trying to throw itself out of my skull. Also, I think this confirms that doing comment reviews is not going to happen. Annoying to scroll through all the comments looking for something specific. So WRITE is going to be the only comment-location reviews the big master review list will contain. Though I do hope to keep up with them if possible. That person who told me not to bother with comment reviews? You were totally right!

    Yes. Yes I did tell you not to worry about comment reviews. ;P
    Although WRITE was probably the best review group of all to do this for, since they’re generally thoroughly extensive.

      The few I glanced at seemed pretty well done. Mostly I liked how long they were because it made skimming through the comment threads to find them much easier. I wanted to do at least one group, just to see how annoying it would be.

      Turns out even just skimming through comments fast enough to just look for large gaps between profile avatars isn’t enough to avoid catching some drama.

    Also, digging the new front page. Looks much more organised 😀

      New front page? Don’t think I changed anything recently.

    The WRITE reviews are kind of an odd bird to include here. For one, they’re going to contain quite a bit of technical content. They’re meant to help the author improve, not flag a story for people who might enjoy reading it. Because of that, many of the stories would have been revised, and the review wouldn’t reflect them accurately anymore. As a corollary to that, for many of them, you wouldn’t have the first clue what the story is about by reading the review. For another, the list of reviewed stories in the group folders is very out of date. Someone (I think it’s Csquared03) does keep his own current list, so if you want it as current as possible, ask him for his. I keep all the WRITE reviews I’ve done in a single GDoc, if it’s easier to link there, but it can be a slog to look through, as it’s a straight cut and paste, so the formatting doesn’t carry over.

      And they are all in comments, so the author knows about them already. Mostly a test to see how easy in-comment reviews could be added to the list. I had not considered the technical angle to things, or at least the focus on helping the author improve. As usual I didn’t really read the reviews as I was adding them. I think I’ll add something to the list description page about it though.

      On the other hand, my requirement for being added to the list is fairly vague and shallow. I mean I’ve included posts where a story gets half a sentence. Given that the 200 or so reviews of WRITE are about 4% of the master list, not going to worry about it too much. Figure just keeping track of if/when new stories get added to the group is going to be good enough. Thanks for the offer though.
