Hey guys, I was looking throughout Newgrounds and noticed some traits of the flash review system that I would want to see people's opinions about the matter.
Reviews that give a perfect score:
Does anyone actually read these? They usually are just stupid, poorly written and don't contribute anything that helps in any way. I actually just scroll past all the 10's till I find a 9 or lower because I just feel like reading perfects are just a waste of time.
Finding out your "Fanbase" from reading the reviews
Reviews say so much, even looking at the "perfects" I can tell who is enjoying my cartoons. It's either exactly the target audience that you expected, or somehow completely different. So the real question is, do you care what your audience is? Are you ashamed, or proud of how you made people laughed/cried/whatnot?
The Dreaded/Delightful Long Review
I usually always read these long reviews, and you guys know what I'm talking about. These things can go either way, it can be one of your favourite reviews, or the most retardedly opinionated, monotonous piece of crap. Some of the times, it makes me wonder why these people write so long of reviews....soo.... Do you guys read these long reviews?
The "Expert" reviews
By "experts" I obviously mean the people who have no experience in making cartoons, and they point out any small flaw that you make while animating/drawing. I love reading these sometimes just because they are really funny people. Who will ever take these guys seriously if they have no experience and they have horrible generic names?
