We have brought back a couple of the review emblems we used to have. The emblems are hand picked by the Community Team to avoid any emblem exploits. If you have a recommendation on a great player review writer please use this thread to alert us. Also, the criteria on how you receive a player review emblem is a mystery but I am sure our Targeted Moderators could give you some general player review advice on what you can improve on if you ask nicely.

Questions & Answers!

Q. Do Ineed to be recommended to receive an emblems?
A. It's possible to get the emblem without being recommended. This thread is just for suggestions.

Q. Can I recommend myself?
A. Of course! Recommending yourself is a good place to start. If you do end up recommending yourself, start thinking about others who also have a good writing style and/or quality.

Q. Many people have recommended me! I deserve an emblem.
A. If someone has been recommended this does not mean they receive an emblem. When the community team checks this thread on a bi-weekly basis, we will make a decision on who should receive an emblem.

Q. Why haven't I received an emblem?
A. We will not be sharing the criteria on how to receive an emblem. However, do some investigation! Check to see who has the emblem and then read their writing style and/or quality to your own.

Q. What is the difference between the two emblems?
A. This emblem is a mystery. However, the Top 100 are more prolific, and maybe the Top 500 haven't written enough reviews.

Q. I want an emblem, give me an emblem, check out my emblem!
A. When you post your recommendations, do not pester and private message staff or contact the moderators to check out the player reviews. This thread is the appropriate place to post your suggestions. Thanks for your cooperation in this matter.

Jody i was wondering is it possible to lose this emblem, since i am currently in the Top 500, does this mean i must continue to write reviews of a moderate standard to keep this emblem or could i lose it to someone else at any point?

I don't know the requirements but I's guess they have to be based more on quallity than quantity. If I am wrong then someone please correct me.

yea, i'm not sure, but Jody mentioned prolific so i thought that meant having a lot of reviews.

I would just keep focus on typing up some good quality reviews. Maybe just focus on one review for a while in Notepad and then once it's final - post it up here on GameSpot. Certainly, I believe in quality over quantity. I often find myself continuing to read through reviews that look like they've had a lot of effort put into them.

of course, that's a no-brainer. i was just curious, no big deal.

I just want to thank who ever did recommend me and for the Community Team on recognising me. Im a Top 100 reviewer apparently.

I haven't been writing much on GS though, as I'm now temping at some fansites. :)

I was going to recommend some people I like, but they all already have the emblem, lol.

Good job on bringing back this feature GS. And for making it worthwhile. :)

Not to be arrogant, but I'd like to recommend myself. I've written about 40 reviews, most of which are of a high quality and have had the thumbs up from a number of different users. I used to have the top 100 emblem too. It'd be nice if I could see it again.

I don't know the requirements but I's guess they have to be based more on quallity than quantity. If I am wrong then someone please correct me.

Without going into too many details (they're still a secret, ya?), we look at quantity only as a minimum requirement. I could care less if you have written one hundred reviews, so long as you have enough quality reviews churned out so that you not only deserve the emblem, but deserve to keep your emblem.

Bottom line: How close is your review work to being in a gaming publication?

It's a high standard for sure, but that's how many of our nitty-gritty decisions are made.

I would like to recommend :arrow:SuperMooseman's reviews as they are really informative. He's not really very well known so they don't have many "Recommended by x users." users on them, but I can assure you they are good.

Please also check out my reviews as I'm quite proud of what I've done and I'm hoping to do more soon! :D

I'll recommend ghangiskhan1 for either emblem. A lot of his reviews are high in quality, and beyond that, he has nearly 300 of them. That's got to count for something.

My view is that Joe714 holds no peer with his reviews.

Azghouls is serving up reviews of quality as well.
