The Presidential Election Review Challenge

Sign in to follow this  

Recommended Posts

Now that it's settled which Presidential Candidates have what amount of stylistic and technical knowledge, it's time to figure out who is the best at describing stuff in a way people think is cool, funny, interesting or otherwise engaging. Hence, the Review Challenge.

 

Candidates are to submit a text-based review of anything they wish (as long as it fits within the Forum Rules and Article II.D.1 of the Charter). It can include pictures and whatever kind of clever formatting, but must be longer than 1500 words. The recommended subjects of a review would be a book, movie or video game. The reviews are due in two weeks (August 15th), and the Reveiws will be judged by the following metric:

  • a. Creativity (Literary expressiveness or emotional inflection in the review as to how likable it is)
    b. Quality (Metric of communicative ability, logic and vocal effectiveness)
    c. Interestingness (How engaging the review is)
    d. Readability (Spelling and grammatical correctness)

This is a nice metric server. No imperial dimensions, please.

Can't we get on with the votes? I've lost alot of interest in the elections.

I really should have paid more attention to the charter before I agreed to participate in this election.

 

I mean, at least two of those judging criteria are entirely subjective. For example (were I a judge), I am so disinclined towards certain subjects, say football, or ponies, or German theatre, that no review, no matter how it is written, is capable of making me find anything about them "likable" or "engaging."

 

How are we supposed to deal with that?

 

Grozit, maybe I'll just review MYSELF. That'll show 'em. "Doom Shepherd: How He Got To Be So Awesome." :twisted:

He just kept talking and talking in one long incredibly unbroken sentence moving from topic to topic so that no one had a chance to interrupt it was really quite hypnotic...

I am considering and reconsidering the other challenges.

My current stance on the issue is "Hmmmm." until I can see a few more opinions on the matter.

I'll read that!

Don't insult me. I have trained professionals to do that.

So is this one still going, or on hold pending review? I don't have a lot of time I can budget to writing, so I need to know before I start.

Okay this challenge is nullified. Is anyone game for the Debate?

Yah. Of course, I've been known to debate on the side of positions contrary to my own, JUST to prove a point.

 

Not that I plan on doing so... no... I simply pl;an on making Goebbels look like an amateur. Bwa-ha-ha.

 

So, who goes first, that I may sink my fangs deeply into their poor unsuspecting throat?

I hear ya...

Don't worry. I doubt ABG will be good at debating; he's far too predictable already.

 

"NO U"

 

"nope.avi"

 

"*Pony image* YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID, SON."

 

He does it all the time (mainly the former two) in Steam chat...

Do you feel blame? Are you mad? Uh, do you feel like wolf kabob Roth vantage? Gefrannis booj pooch boo jujube; bear-ramage. Jigiji geeji geeja geeble Google. Begep flagaggle vaggle veditch-waggle bagga?

Hopefully the debate will not be one centered around anything religious, I don't think I can stand another "debate" like that.

"NO U" is not something I say all the time, same with "your argument is invalid" and I traditionally use "nope.avi" when something you claim is actually incorrect (so I guess all the time yeah :P ). And considering you've never actually debated something with me before, I think your prediction about my ability is premature.
