    Basically, Curb stepped down, and Shem is no longer reviewing

    So we've took on Nero to fill one role, and are still taking applicants for role #2
    Oh I see, I was aware 2 RT members left, but I wasn't sure if 2 more were being added or not. Thanks for clearing that up man

    This might not be my place to say, but instead of adding more members maybe just a larger focus on actually getting the team already in place to keep putting out reviews would be better. the RT right now has 7 members but we aren't even seeing 1 review a month. Only 2 Vita games have been reviewed (and I remember that being a big focus last year) and hardly any of the big titles have been reviewed this year (max payne, star hawk, lollypop, etc.)

    Reviews could become a main part of the site and a driving tool to get new members here (people looking for a review may come to our site and end up staying for the guides and community), but we have to get them out more frequently. I know this has been brought up in the past but why not do what the TGT does and open it up to the public and then use the RT to make sure the review is up to snuff. That way we are getting a wider range of reviews (to bring in more traffic) and it allows the community to feel more apart of the site.

    I know I am not the only one that feels this way.

    I know you're not the only one who feels that way, but you're bringing up points very similar to what I'm wanting to try and change

    I'm getting plans together and will be running them by with Gauss of the site aswell, I know it's been said a thousand times but I really want to bring some big changes to the team, and hopefully within the upcoming months you'll be able to see this evidenced with the higher amount of work being done by the team

    We aren't simply adding more members, we're replacing members. We've lost Curb, we've lost Shem, Gauss is missing and Nag has YLOD.

    Getting the team into place is the main thing I want to do.

    Just wondering, if I don't necessarily want to write guides, are you maybe looking for a proofreader or editor for new/existing guides? As a master of the English language, I would be pretty happy to help in that capacity. And I work for +rep

    Send the review within a PM to Curse. You may have to separate it into multiple PMs if it exceeds 5000 characters.

    If it is over 5000 characters when you send it in, do not simply break it at 5000 and start a new PM. Try and do so at the end of a paragraph or something like that.

    If by guides you mean reviews, then no, we're pretty solid with an editing process and we try to not let things get overlooked. We're looking for more activity in terms of reviews. The RT has been admittedly a rather inactive team ever since we hit the year 2012, and we're looking to change things around with new members that are ready and willing to write high quality reviews. And none of us work for rep. If you ever find a major grammatical error in one of our posted reviews, you can always let us know via PM and we'll get around to fixing it.

    It is not a question of getting every new game that comes out in order to write a long review. While the team does try to do so for the big blockbuster games like Arkham City, Mass Effect 3, Skyrim and so forth, the older games still need to be reviewed just as much. Just because a game is over one year old does not mean it shouldn't be reviewed.


    In my opinion, some people assume that after a certain point in time, your personal review will be tarnished by the game magazines, websites and other people, therefore making you impartial. This might be true in some cases, but the people on the RT have to put aside personal feelings for a game and just grade/score it based upon its own merits and not what they think personally think.

    Good luck everyone. Be sure to check over all your works before submitting. Nothing like a half assed work OR to put one in and then look back and see numerous little errors and things that could of been fixed before hand. RT defnitely looking for people that they won't have to train and look after "SOO" much. Besides, got their hands full of Lord Nero now. .

    does this have to be a PS3 game only since this is a PS3 site, or can it be any system (cuz there are some threads and sections for other systems)???
