I’ll have to see if I have a couple more left in me. I’ve beaten my last record so that was pretty nice.

Congrats on gasmask_colostomy for being today's leader with a respectable 7 reviews!

We're almost there at the finish line. Keep up the great work! \m/

That's it from me. I was surprisingly motivated at the start of the challenge, but have been fighting a headache and nausea for the past 4 days.
Good thing I wrote some more reviews at the start of the week that I only had to finish and proofread before publishing, so I got more than last time at least.

Might as well end things on a very high note. I'll keep the rest for later (but obviously, rewrite them during the next challenge).

And I'm pretty sure that was 25 for me, kinda waited until the end to finally get into a groove, but that's what happens when you get knocked down by a nasty migraine and lose 2 1/2 days out of a week. Next time I'll see if I can free up an entire week and better plan out the order of the albums I tackle, as this time I was basically going at random from a list of about 60 albums once I was able to stare at a computer screen for more than 2 seconds.

25 was my goal but I'm done with 17, that's fine. Managed to add to my NWOFHM series and I wasn't gonna let Twisted_Peacock review all those King Gizzard albums by himself.

This was my first time participating and I had a lot of fun going through Gut's discography for the challenge. One review a day seemed like a fun thing to try out but going through the same band over and over definitely took a toll on my commentary, I feel.

I don't even get that one but I also kinda love it.

Tapped out Sunday with 34 reviews. Not as high as I initially set out to do but still more than I'd ever done in a week before. I may need to pick some more engaging stuff next time but I was glad to find those discographies to play around with.

Even though I'm not gonna win this challenge. I still had a fun time reviewing albums, EPs, and demos that weren't reviewed. I plan on doing more reviews for the next challenge.

TOTAL VIRGINS: 428

On average, 87% of all reviews from the week were virgins! This is lower than the last challenge, which was at 94%.

We were down 153 reviews, but up 18 participants from the last challenge.

The 5th Diamhea Memorial Review Challenge was the second best challenge we've had since June 2017 and is one of only eight challenges that have cracked 400 total reviews. No new all-time records were broken, but we have seen the most new folks in this challenge than we have in years.

Damn, that’s a surprisingly large amount of people. Hopefully some of them are going to become better known around here. I really tried to be a bit more useful this time round and wrote a lot of requests, as well as a few things from my personal collection that have been neglected.

Derigin, I didn’t want to ask in the middle of the challenge, but were there any suggestions from last time that you wanted to use? I appreciated the front page post going up earlier (and feel it might have led to more participants), though I think the rest was the same.

I admit this particular challenge was much the same as before. I am planning to implement new additions based on the advice so far for the December 2020 challenge, as that one is easier for me to adopt new things, just because of the time of the year. Unfortunately, despite the pandemic or maybe in spite of it, I was pretty swamped this week.

Among some of the new additions being brought in, I'll be doing the following:

  • I'll be including a running total for everyone throughout the week, every day. This way people will know where they stand in relation to one another throughout the week, instead of just at the end of the challenge. I understand that some people like the surprise reveal when the challenge ends, but over the years I've seen more people remark that it'd make them more competitive if they knew where they stood, which could mean more virgins being reviewed for the challenge.
  • I'll be keeping note of what release types have been reviewed each day and by who. I'll use this data at the end of the challenge to point out who has reviewed the most of each type. I'm not inclined to do a new leaderboard, but I'm willing to try this out for now and see how it works.
  • I'll be keeping track of the virgin album that was most reviewed during the challenge. For instance, this time around it was In Flames' Clayman (Re-Recorded) which somehow got 4 reviews during the challenge.
  • I'll also keep track of what bands were virgin bands before they got a review, too. This might be neat information. Deflowered bands.
  • I'm open to including a "Most ______ Review" questionnaire that reviewers could use at the end of the challenge to point out which reviews throughout the challenge they feel fit certain categories (funniest, polarizing, cringeworthy, best, worst, etc.). That could be an informal process, with users replying with answers from the questionnaire if they so choose, as a way to help guide discussion. Not totally sold on this. Thoughts?

There's also some things I'm looking at changing, and would appreciate advice on, including the following:

  • Getting rid of the "did not participate" list. This was originally kept to help me calculate the number of total participants each day, but in all honesty I don't really need it. I've kept it mostly for tradition at this point. I see no problem in getting rid of this bit of information.
  • I'm not entirely sure what to do with the "Secret Satan" aspect of the challenge. I feel like it has started to feel a bit dated, but, I'm not sure how best to improve it, replace it, or do something else with it. Suggestions are welcome here.

There are also some things I'm going to politely decline doing, though I appreciate the suggestions:

  • I'm not inclined to do word counts on reviews. It sounds nice in theory, but in practice it would slow down the counting for me. I'm also not sure of the value from it; speaking from experience, length is a tough determiner of quality. Some of the best reviews on the site are short, while some of the worst are long. To me it's not so much length that creates quality, but what you have to say and how you go about saying it.
  • I'm also not entirely sure about tracking genres, for a few reasons. The first reason being that genres are tied to bands, not albums, and occasionally don't match every album in a band's discography perfectly. The second reason is that many bands have unique genres (some that are quite lengthy), and so the value of making general stats from it would be limited unless I generalized them. And lastly, not everyone agrees with the genre and I'd much rather not start fights or nitpicking over the genre I must choose to classify an album under. For these reasons, I'm leaning towards avoiding stats based on genres. My thoughts at least.
  • I think it's best to keep the single leaderboard going that we have already. I don't mind noting who has done what as far as release types go and other such data, and give a special call out to the person who did the most of a specific type, but the current leaderboard based on number of virgin reviews per day is what I feel is the most straight-forward way with the challenge.

Suggestions for more improvements are always welcome, of course.

I remember during the last challenge we were in striking distance of breaking the old cumulative record, and I noted at the time that the main reason why we didn't was both a smaller number of individual participants, and also less of what I'd refer to as "moderate contributors", i.e. people who would review 10-20 albums as opposed to more than 40, which is what there tends to be on the upper end of the leader board. This challenge we basically had both of those weaknesses completely corrected, but we didn't have anybody doing an insane number of reviews to clinch the top spot. I think if we have another trio or quartet of reviewing madmen who are willing to try and break triple digits, alongside a massive overall turnout like this, we'll easily smash the old cumulative record.

I'm in agreement with every modification you're going to enact next time Derigin, we may want to modify the Secret Satan to be more of a general buddy system where maybe people can choose more than one album for their partner, but either way, I'm fine with whatever you decide. I may not participate in the Secret Satan next time if it is kept only because if I try to go nuts with reviewing albums I'll probably want to stick to albums that I've already heard before. That said, I enjoyed the album that Twisted_Psychology chose for me, and I definitely recommend that any thrash fans on the board check out Charonyx.

Yeah, I like all of those and I think most were discussed last time. I’m fine with ruling out stats that are too time-consuming or insignificant to calculate as well. Doing informal polls at the end would be a fun way to have a discussion, since I feel the camaraderie of the challenge peters out quite fast after it finishes.

Maybe instead of the “Did not participate” list, you could do a preliminary list of the “Individuals who participated for X days” list, to keep track of who has contributed regularly. I’d suggest just keeping those on all days or who missed 1 day.

Last time, I mentioned that Secret Satan could be done openly, people picking an album and tossing it into this group for general review, sort of like a specific request thread for this challenge. For people who don’t know what to review, that would give them more material. It would obviously no longer be secret, so maybe we could call it Satan’s Sacrificial Circle or something.

It was a fun event to participate in, and discovered a myriad of great bands, and musicians along the way to explore further. I think that I've gotten into a steady writing rhythm, and hope to submit reviews on a more consistent basis.

I'm definitely all about having running totals over the course of the week. It instills a good sense of competition and I constantly count my total anyway.

As for the Secret Satan, I'm pretty good with it. I put all my focus on reviewing what I've already heard at least once but it's kinda nice to mix it up with one potential outlier. I think the biggest thing is to just take into consideration the taste of who you're paired with. Hell's recommendation wasn't quite in my usual wheelhouse but it was relatable enough for me to get a substantial review out of it so that was nice. And there was certainly satisfaction in seeing him enjoy Charonyx as much as he did.

Only started Thursday, but actually participated every day since then which is unusual for me. Five may be a piffle to all you double-digiters, but it's good for me. In fact, I think it ties my previous record. I submitted more negative than positive reviews, covered the remaining Viscera Infest releases except one, got another Plasmatics under my belt, and was able to work in allusions to cosplayer Zach Scuderi, hoax erotic novel Naked Came the Stranger, Sesame Street, Autopsy (of course), Carnivore, and Detroit Rock City. I won't keep up this pace, but I think I can fit the occasional short review into my schedule.

I was happy to see Gut finally made it on the archives. Now we just need Rompeprop and the Meat Shits and we'll have all the major porno bands.

It was good to see you and a few other newer faces join in seriously. Although out of your 10 reviews, you have just 4 different scores: are those your favourite numbers or something? :-P

Cat III, I believe the Sloth that you reviewed also had a Simpsons reference in the title, so it really was a cultural experience for you! I also gave in to curiosity and wrote what will probably be my only ever review of Sloth.

I had a go. It was quite fun, I've never reviewed an album before until now - really made me think about what it is I am listening to, and also why. Learn by doing I guess.

I’d been off reviewing for a couple years. Felt good to get back it and listen to some stuff I hadn’t tried yet :)

It was a fun event to participate in, and discovered a myriad of great bands, and musicians along the way to explore further. I think that I've gotten into a steady writing rhythm, and hope to submit reviews on a more consistent basis.

It was good to see you and a few other newer faces join in seriously. Although out of your 10 reviews, you have just 4 different scores: are those your favourite numbers or something? :-P

Cat III, I believe the Sloth that you reviewed also had a Simpsons reference in the title, so it really was a cultural experience for you! I also gave in to curiosity and wrote what will probably be my only ever review of Sloth.


:wink: Figured I'd play it safe while getting a system down for scoring ha ha! Definitely planning on diversifying the scores in the future!

Two reviews is double my previous best for this challenge, so I'm happy with that! It also normally takes me several days to write one review, with lots of proofreading and editing, but I found that I could crank something out in a mere matter of hours and be happy enough with it, so it's good to know I can still write under pressure. I haven't completely lost the skill of last minute essay writing I "worked" so hard to get in university haha.

Well, it's been a pleasure to participate again after all these years. 7 is not a bad score for me at all, in fact, it must be one of my highest. Not having to tally the score helps writing more reviews, what a surprise.

We'll meet again in December I guess :)

Derigin, I don't know if you're interested, but I must still keep a few stats concerning the very first challenges somewhere - those for which the original forum threads were lost.

If there's a Simpsons reference in that title, it was unintentional, but cool to know. Don't blame you for not reviewing any more Sloth. I do have a positive Sloth review I'm planning on getting to.

(Forgot in my original comment: I also referenced mukbang, something I hope to never have to bring up again.)
