I started writing it up on the 9th, but due to school shit, I couldn't complete it, so I finished it up last night.

Didn't finish two reviews that I was working on because I chose quality over rushing them. This means my sole contribution is that weird review of On Broken Wings :D

I wrote a review for the first time in a couple of months, but it wasn't for a virgin :( i do have a review in the works for The Feast of Clipped Wings by A Pregnant Light. Better late than never I guess?

I couldn't do more than one, sadly. My pitiful writing skills wouldn't allow me to think of words that do the review thing.

There are more than a few that will be walking like a cowboy for a few days! Nice work everyone, I've been reading through a lot of the challenge reviews and there were a lot of really great reads there.

Curious to know if there's a list of the challenge reviews, always a good read.

I actually sent a handful of virgin reviews last week without even realizing this challenge was going on until just recently.

Re-reading the OP, I thought how a themed challenge as opposed to this classic version would be pretty cool. If we do this again I would recommend we did a themed variation (e.g. review only albums related to the Ocean or Space or something).

We'll get cook up something soon, sorry 'bout the delay. We've been grotesquely busy these few days: someone at my place of employment was fired and we've been on a shitlist since. But yes, Tony, Bastard and I will make a list and announce the winner(s) in a few days, I promise!

Also, thanks to everyone who took part in the challenge. The reviews were very consistent and beefy, so thanks for writing up guys and gals! :beer:

Yeah it was a pretty decent turn out. Keep me busy for the whole week (reading as much as writing). Thanks again everyone!

I also had a lousy week, could only write on three out of seven days. Now I'm on new (legal) drugs and I'm feeling much better. :) And I agree that all the participants made a good effort on this.

I'm mildly sorry to say this, but unless you go through the reviews log day by day, your work is mostly wasted. I wrote 5 reviews, three of which never appeared on the thread, and I also approved some and never mentioned them here.

It seems we lack a workaholic nowadays. If I had more time, I'd make the list, but being hellishly busy (two weeks into extendeing the house with additional 85 sq-m), I simply don't have the time or the energy. How about, say, telling the people who were behind the idea of the challenge and pushing for it in the beginning to finish what they started? Otherwise, this might leave a nasty stain on the challenge's reputation...

And not to be a bitch to enthusiastic people out there, but there's still more than a dozen reviews from the challenge period in the queue, at least the first of which is, surprise surprise, on a virgin demo. It's no use tallying the score unless someone can be arsed to do the disgusting work and actually empty the queue first.

Yes, I'm being an obnoxious ass instead of a productive member of the staff right now, but I just don't have the capacity to do anything about this right now.

I wrote the review for Divine Element's debut, not Pr0ngo.

Also, I don't think any of us are particularly impatient to see the results... I think I can speak for everyone when I say that, while the challenge has been over for more than a week, we understand if the mods having real life obligations. So the timing was bad, whatever. As long as you guys get to it eventually.

I'm not trying to jump the gun and get anyone to do work they don't feel like doing. I just thought it would be cool to see everything compiled onto one list. Like I said, if anyone wants to post the mistakes or additions, I can change them on my post. That way they're all in one spot.

Yeah, that wasn't my intent to have everyone drop what they're doing and get to the results now. I enjoyed reading the reviews that we're specifically written for the challenge, so I guessed that some others would like to read them as well. Rather than scrolling through the entire thread, I tried to put them in one easy to look at post. Take your time with it guys.

117 is pretty beefy number for one week.

Not compared to other challenges we had before.

My Defender review was written on Sunday but approved later, does that still count?

I was a member during the old challenges, but I wasn't much a reviewer then. What were the numbers like then?

but I felt that we went a bit too much for quantity than quality. That is why I also did not write more than two for this challenge. Had been fun to write about this Russian band.

Woh, these are huge numbers! Anyway, I asked for quality over quantity. We wouldn't have the staff to deal with that many reviews.

I cannot find the results for the no. 10 and no.11 challenges. Does anyone have them? is the site of sisters_of_merciless still active?

The Needlebase website was taken down by google a while back, so sisters_of_merciless moved some of the data back to the older website he had created at his http://www.furia.com/em/ page, but he didn't put the old challenge results on them. I remember off hand that I had done 30 reviews for challenge 11 and I was somewhere in the either the high 80s or low 90s for the 10th, but Perplexed definitely wrote the largest number of reviews in a single week during a challenge by at least a couple.

I haven't heard from sisters_of_merciless since the thread he put up in the suggestions forum telling everyone that the Discordance was being taken down. You can see the thread on this page. http://www.metal-archives.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=87551
