Trying to participate a little more in this one. I won't be anywhere near the top reviewer but I'll try and get a few out there.

Do you think just typing "bbbbbbbbbbbbllllllllllllllllllllllrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" as a review would count?

We should keep them for a Sloth-only review challenge.

Easy point grabbing. Once you have written one, you have written one for all of these. Variations can be added via PHP or Lua Script.

Well, I did listen to the M-A bashing one that you linked. :lol: Maybe I could, but I don't feel like sitting through six minutes of static again!

I am so sorry for my endless Discharge reviews. After the two for today (hopefully) get accepted, there are two more, and then that is it, I promise. :lol:

I just finished my review swap. It's kinda brief, but it's from a genre I'm not completely comfortable reviewing. Not sure if I'll fit another in, but I might try.

Extremely awesome work so far. We're at the same numbers as the first day, and on track to giving last year a run for its money. Compared to last year, we have 16 more reviews at this time in the challenge. The total number of participants is also much higher this time around - with currently 15 more. Compared to the last challenge in June... well... we've almost reached the total amount of virgins reviewed in that challenge. I suspect we'll surpass that tomorrow (or at least I hope!). We are 179 reviews short of beating last December's challenge - we can do this!

Do I still get credit for taking a v-card even though it was snatched away at the start of the challenge? I've got a few to hammer out now that my semester is done and I have my first day off in weeks, THANK SATAN.

As long as it wasn't deflowered before the start of the challenge, it still counts. Any review that was a virgin at the start is valid for the rest of the week.

I don't know if it's correct to post this question here, but I couldn't find any "Questions thread" or something like that. Anyway, how can I see how many points I earned from an approved review? Obviously, there's the thing of the total points in my profile, but I'd like to know it for every review, so I can imitate the good things in the 5 point reviews and improve next time the things I did in the other ones.

I want to help you in this challenge, and I want to do it writing the best I can; as you said "quality over quantity".

Well, unless it is a very low-quality but passable review, it will earn 5 points 9 times out of 10. As for how to keep track of it, you just have to look at how much your total points increase by with every review. Unless you make any other little modifications or submit bands, your score should always be a multiple of 5, provided you produce decent reviews.

I really haven't found a good way to track it myself, but I can tell you that you got 5 points for each of your reviews so far (for the three you've done so far). Keep up the good work!

Ok. Roger that. Thanks for the answer. So, I'll keep doing my best.

Haha, thank you. Nice words are stronger to encourage me than checking points I guess.

I don't think that Diamhea and the other review queue workers will mind. :lol: Thanks for reviewing such a sizable chunk of their discography!

By the way, everyone should try to find a Christmas related release to review on Christmas eve. It would be quite cool.

Someone could always tackle this. Actually, all of Tom Angelripper's albums are virgins.

I edited my Scumpulse review from a couple of days ago to reflect that it was the release assigned to me for Secret Satan by oneyoudontknow. Cool band, thanks for sending them my way, dude!

Hell yeah man, no problem. I love the band, but man am I burnt out on their shit now! I need a break from all things punk - maybe one of my famed single digiters should do the trick!

So i just submitted my secret santa review to the queue. Already wrote most of it a couple days ago but had a very minor music burn out the last couple of days.
Amusingly i already owned the album in question which actually helped me quite a bit to actually finish it.
maybe ill do another review this challenge but at the moment that seems unlikely but hey at least 2 is better than 1.

Oh shit, my tenth review was so fuckin' cathartic. I needed that!

EDIT: Fuckin' hell. Well then, with all of that out of my system, I am off to bed now! (It is like, 5 AM here.)

I'm actually working on a review of a Christmas single just now, so maybe I won't publish it until tomorrow instead. It'd be pretty cool to have a day of Christmas-themed reviews

I'm in. There is a Very Important Release without any reviews, it seems.

I got off work for the next day and a half for the holidays, so I'll get to complete the last handful of reviews I wanted to do after all. :beer:

Got a Christmas themed review, too.

Participation in this has been a little more fun than I thought. It's been a good incentive to write reviews for albums that don't have any. I'm not the best reviewer by a long shot but it's been good.

Due to time zones, it's already just after 4pm on Christmas Eve, so I don't know if I'll be able to write many more. I'll be too busy eating. ;)

We're making a good rebound. One more day to go. Let's make it the best one!

Compared to the previous two challenges, our second-to-last day turnout absolutely swamped them: 22 virgins in June, and 45 virgins last December. We have officially passed last December's total amount by 1 review; this challenge is now the second best winter challenge we've done. If we can do 105 virgins today, which is possible but a BIG push, we will be the best ever winter challenge thus far.

He's like a machine or something.

There's been 3 new Ningen-Isu reviews this challenge. Nice. :nods: I actually like the 1996 album a lot, and I'm pretty familiar with it. Looks like that one will be a good target.

His pacing per day is actually a little faster than what Noktorn and I were doing back in the earlier challenges. I had a different job back then so I was able to set aside a lot of time to focus on reviewing, whereas this week I've only had a few hours here and there each day, and tomorrow will likely not afford me a whole lot of time to review. I am really impressed with the strong collective turn out, I think we've had more small contributors than the past several challenges.

I'm afraid that with the third review submission, my work here is done this time. The timing was a bit inconvenient, all things considered, and with some Christmas hassle with the ex-crone and the kids, and with the New Lady after them, I will be tied up in various activities from now on. Enjoy the rest of the challenge, people, you're doing a fine job!

As of now Diamhea has submitted 57 reviews. He has submitted very nearly as many over six days as I have over the course of 8.5 months, up to the challenge!

Need to put on the final push. I have a few reviews I've been working on over the week that I just haven't been able to finish. I'm hoping today is my most productive day of the week.

I actually had to cut out two of my planned virgins to review, else I would have to have done 6 reviews today. Now it is a far more manageable 3 (I just submitted one.)

Almost time to call it quits for the time being, maybe even the rest of the evening. Christmas Eve dinner is calling my name and I forgot to eat while finish up my latest reviews. Hope we get some more submissions here soon.
