Auckland Heat 9

What is it about this heat that's lead to there being so shamefully few reviews? Is there some immutable law about all teams beginning with 'F' just being unbelievably lazy and entitled? Were they all so forgettable?

Some heats just died in the review area and I have no idea
I suspect because they were small heats in terms of numbers and that we're reliant on 2 or 3 reviewers who usually kick things off. But if they're not there then its goodnight nurse.

We need to clone Steel Potato from Welly.

I remember the good ol' days when Robyn and Godfather did the Auckland reviews (were they not both associated with a certain 'F' team?). Those 2 were legends. Hard shoes to fill.

Godfather was at my heat, he sat in the row in front of me - not sure why he hasn't posted any reviews. *sadface*

I've put up 5 reviews, and having a hard time with the others as I didn't make any notes. What a knob.

heat 12 is the same, ever since it became mainly "out of towners" grouped together we don't get reviewed. P-Man and I made a few comments, but it feels strange reviewing a film when you know the team members.

I'll pop up some reviews for those films once they're up in the screening room. Unfortunately had visitors from the mainland so couldn't make the Fri/Sat/Sun heats :(

If anyone's is up and specifically wants reviews let me know :D

Looks about the same as 9, which is to say: bloody disaster. Hard to get useful feedback when no one bothers posting.

Usually the early heats in CHCH don't go so well with reviews - only getting two or three each for the last few years. Having a dedicated schools heat has raised that number but most aren't valid reviews. The Out-of-Towners heat was pretty sparsely attended too.

I have to say, Andrew couldn't have done any more to encourage people and explain what the reviews site is for!

To be honest, most of the reviews are based purely on how the reviewers felt about the movie as one whole package. Not 'how it could have been better', or 'it did this well'. Constructive feedback isn't a priority in the reviews anymore. Which is why there is a shitstorm on some of the other threads re stars, and comments. I wouldn't worry too much about not having them. I havn't read too much into our reviews, as it's the judges, and you as a team that judge the final product constructively.

It's very hard to objectively judge your own work.

I know. I realise everyone is on the 48hr buzz following the shoot weekend, and all we want is feedback, but the review site isn't necessarily where the best feedback is going to come from. Thats all I'm saying, doesn't excuse the lack of reviews though.

Judging by views on the AUD FAVES - there is still a lot of activity happening here. But the comments have shifted elsewhere.

Remember when we had 40 threads on the old forums
it was impossible to keep track of but kinda exciting.

We could dump the reviews and go back to that but I'm not sure thats a better system as I love Nicks database he built and its pretty awesome.

Could sort it out with a few additions to features already in place.

#1. Default star rating should be no rating, and that shouldn't count as a zero against the average.

#2. Sufficient downvotes hides the spammy dickhead reviews, requiring extra click to view them - same as youtube - and also stops them counting against the average.

I would suggest instead of the current overall star rating, modify it to be like the old school reviews we used to get. Reviewers have to rate between 1-5 for story, style, use of random elements, script...or whatever. Then theoretically reviewers should be a bit fairer if they are forced to think specifically about one technical element instead of their overall feeling of a movie. But then again people will also abuse that system. You will never completely weed out the trash. It's a great site, with some dickheads souring some people's experience. In the end...you can't win em all.
