Help wanted

Postby Sematary » Sat May 28, 2016 12:28 pm

I'm always looking to see if anyone is interested in becoming a reviewer for the website or would like to contribute in other ways, maybe even ways I haven't thought of. Eric does most of the reviews, while I do a few. Vinny (aka Fonze) writes up the This Week in Doom article then I get it all formatted into a web page. I do the same for Eric's reviews. He sends them to me and I get them on a web page and posted. But, there is only the three of us, currently, and I would love to have more content going up - more reviews especially, for all the Doom games but I'm even up for reviews of any of the Quake games or even Wolfenstein games. The more the merrier. I could also use someone to research new stuff for Doom 3 as it is fairly spread out across the internet and it's difficult to consolidate it all as looking for it takes more time. Anyway, if you think you can contribute, let me know. you can pm me here or email me at interleave1@doomwadstation.nat or interleave1@earthlink.net

That's cool. Do a good job on it then pimp it here. ;-)

Im down!
I will be more than glad to review some custome WADs. I just would need a bit more info on how you would like them written out. For example, is there a specific format or scale that you us? Let me know.

Not really. I used to do the 1-10 scale but I basically switched to a non scale and just discuss the wad(s). Eric, on the other hand uses a scale but slightly less detail so really, it's all up to you. If you prefer a 1-5 scale or a 1-8 scale or no scale, totally up to you. Which game(s) do you want to review for? It's pretty much wide open. Sometimes, I might go - hey, somebody sent me this wad, wanna check it out? And if it sucks you just say so and we give the author the bad news and move on, or you can choose something from the This Week in Doom article - http://www.doomwadstation.net/twid/ that interests you or you can just go look through the archives to find something. I'm fond of picking something that looks interesting from 20 years ago and doing reviews of those because they deserve to be reviewed. So I'm wide open. You can look at any of the recent reviews to see how they're set up - or even the older ones - it really hasn't changed much. A bunch of screenshots, a link to the file so I can download it and a text file with the review are all I need. I'll do the formatting for the web page. All 4 games are up for grabs.

I'm up for reviewing stuff. I would prefer to know what I should be reviewing though, I mostly play stuff that I encounter from other sites and don't go looking for things often. Just let me know :)
