Mini-Review Round One
Mini-Review Round One Announcement

Welcome to the first Mini-Review round.

This Round covers Exchange entries posted on December 3 through December 14.

To qualify for a Mini-Round Queen of Reviews prize and banner, you must review every entry posted in that period (and review every chapter of multi-chaptered stories) AND turn it in by the due date.

The only exceptions for not reviewing a story are (1) You created the gift in question and feel uncomfortable reviewing it - please cite that reason for the missing link OR (2) If a recipient's story contains any of the following warnings and you have objections to reading it, on those grounds only, you may count that recipient's spot for the Mini Round without reviewing. Please cite your reason and provide a link to the story so that the mods can verify.

Warnings eligible for this exception include: Abortion, adultery, bestiality,cannibalism, drug and/or alcohol abuse, incest, miscarriage, rape (this includes non-consensual (non-con), dubious-consent (dub-con), and the use of any mind-altering potions or spells with the intention to manipulate a person into having sex), severe abuse (including oppression, physical, emotional, sexual, and domestic violence), suicide/self-mutilation, torture or underage sex (according to the age of consent in your country/state).

Then, compile a list of direct links to your reviews, and submit them as two comments to this post by December 16, 11:59 PM EST (New York, USA). Comments will be screened.

To qualify for the Goddess of Reviews prize and banner, you must review every entry posted in the Exchange, using the appropriate form for each time period AND turn it in by the due date (two weeks after Reveals - date TBA).

How to find the direct link to your review in the comments:

Look at your comment box. Directly under your user name is a time stamp.

example: 2010-04-20 02:05 pm (local) (link) ? see the link? Click on that, and your review’s location will be displayed in your browser’s address bar. Cut and paste that info into your review list.

Please use the forms provided below {CRTL-A to select all in box; CRTL-C to copy; CRTL-V to paste in comment(s)}, comments are screened - this will make the verifying process go faster.

And remember to check your submission carefully - you can only submit each review form ONCE (no edits allowed, to be fair to everyone). **We will allow ONE delete in case of accidental keyboard slippage.

You are encouraged to double check your forms against the Mini-Review Rounds Link Tracker before submitting them.

Week One Form

Week Two Form


1. There are TWO textbox forms to submit, one for each week, one per comment (two comments per reviewer). Please DO NOT send review form in a pm or email. It is much easier for us to keep track of responses in one thread. Thank you!

2. If fic entries totaling more than 100k are posted on the Friday before the Review Forms are due, the submission due date will be extended 24 hours per 50k. Example: three stories equaling 110k are posted on September 30. Review Forms will be due Monday, October 3 Midnight EST (New York, USA). Two stories equaling 230k would result in a Wednesday due date, etc. The next Mini Round will still start on the scheduled Monday.

3. The review forms now have a field for house affiliation. This does NOT need to be the one Pootermore assigned to you, but the house you truly feel you belong to, if only in an ironic, cynical, we're playing make-believe and avoiding "grown-up stuff" way, yes?


Good luck and have fun storming the castle!

Ok now I am bit confused, we we need to include subchapter reviews as well. Just wondering.

pokeystar From: pokeystar Date: December 13th, 2012 07:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes - for QoR, you need to list a link to every chapter to qualify.

I'm a bit confused on some of the posting dates; my view of the Exchange has at least two fics with bad posting dates. I'm assuming three recipients per day. If I'm off – that is, if I post a review link under the wrong date – will I be disqualified?

Re: Dates...

When in doubt, check the review tracker


It lists the gift and the number of reviews needed.

DRAT DRAT DRAT! I think I missed the deadline by two stinking minutes because LJ decided my entry was too long by a mere 28 characters. Also, in my haste to get it in by the deadline, I failed to put week 2 as a reply to week 1's entry. Naturally I would be the one to mess things up straight out of the gate. :/

No - you're good.

Entries checked to this point.
christev From: christev Date: December 20th, 2012 06:11 am (UTC) (Link)
All review links checked to this point - this is also the cut off point for Queen of Reviews for mini-round 1, but further posts are allowed for Review Goddess classification.
