What is Iron Reviewer? It is a competition starting January first to find the most tenacious of all of the Geek's reviewers.
There is an existing Iron Reviewer contest still going on that started in 2011. You can see the details of that contest here:
Iron Reviewer: Last Geek Standing
Iron Reviewer Discussion Thread
Since that contest launched, our community has grown and many new members have expressed an interest in joining in the fun. So this is a new version of the same contest, open to all site members!
Current Deadline: post a review by midnight every day until only one reviewer is left standing!
Current local time in Dallas, Texas, USA ("BGG Time")
The rules are as follows:
There is no entry fee; this is open to all site users.
Keep writing reviews to the schedule, or you're out:
One review every two weeks up to 1 July (13 reviews).
Then one review every week up to 30 September (13 more reviews).
Then two reviews every week up to 30 December (26 more reviews).
Then one review every day until everyone drops out.
There are three lifelines, each of which can only be used once per contestant:
Freebie: If you miss a review, you have to write two EXTRA in the following time period to get back in (four extra if you skip two reviews in one week in the October to December period).
Vacation: You can miss a review period with no penalty as long as you inform the group while turning in the previous review. So if you plan to miss review number 15, you must inform of this when you post review number 14.
Personal: If you feel for some reason that because of personal events beyond your control you were not be able to review, you can use this option. The honour system is in effect here. This lifeline should not be used lightly. It should not be used because of technical problems, laziness or bad fortune that could have been avoided, but for graver situations.
All reviews have to be posted during the two-week period. All reviews have to be in by midnight RPG Geek time (before the end of Monday). It is the submission time that matters here, rather than the time it gets through GeekMod.
All reviews can be for any kind of entry in the RPGG database. The review can't have been published anywhere else before it is posted on the 'Geek and it can't be a video review. Periodicals and issues may be reviewed, but not individual articles.
Any one review will only count towards one Iron Reviewer contest (the folks still churning out daily reviews for the 2011 contest will have to submit additional reviews if they join in here as well).
Everyone who enters at least one review for this contest will be given an exclusive microbadge.
The prize pot consists of all GeekGold tipped to the signup thread. The winner gets 2/3 of the pot. The one who has earned the most thumbs for their reviews gets 1/3.
At any time when only one participant meets the deadline, and no one has called a vacation, the posting player is declared the winner. That means only the vacation lifeline can get you out of losing.
If a deadline passes and no one posts, all remaining players gets a freebie.
This GeekList tracks all the participants, how many lifelines they have and all reviews they have posted.
If anyone wants to join, post in the signup thread (and say what database item you would like to represent you in the contest GeekList). Since the first deadline is January 14th, anyone can join before this date. So, while the competition starts on the January 1st, people can join until the 14th.
Special thanks go to Steve Donohue for creating this contest, and to Karl Larsson for being the faithful arbiter of the 2011 contest.
