As Kris pointed out. I may like to spot trolls, but it's also fun to mess with them.

We definitely don't need more mods; we just need people to either report posts or stop acting like this is /b/. It's not worth our time to coddle people with developmental disabilities or socially incompetent morons.

In a perfect world, people who cause the most problems or whose posts are reported most would just up and leave, but they're so delusional, they NEED to act like idiots in order to feel 'okay'. That's sad, but also not really our problem.

There's the proof reading thread on this board and a ton of helpful people on the site. Make it clear in the comments that you're lookin to improve and open to advice and people are much more likely to approach criticism in a constructive way. If you want some personal advice feel free to message me questions or something you want looked over. Leave something in my shoutbox if you do.

Reading other reviews from staffers or respected writers can be helpful, I'd avoid any general tutorial for a music review though because it's better to approach it in your own way IMO (basic objective writing tips are obviously good though).

I was also going to ask for a feature for the new Green Day album but Ins has already got that covered so is there any way mine can be rotated in?

This band has two pages:

http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/The-B-52s/1541/
- This one is older and has more votes.
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/The-B-52s/11480/
- This has only two votes, broken album covers, and it's incomplete.

Also, the bands name is "B-52", without the word "the" nor the apostrophe, me thinks but I'm not sure:
"Any mystery concerning the bandís longevity and ongoing appeal is immediately solved when exposed to a B-52s concert experience."
?????- from official site or... something: http://theb52s.com/about/

Prior to 2008, the apostrophe was there. It seems more appropriate to leave it in since that's what they were known as for longer.

These are singles, not EPs:

Also, this: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/61924/Your-Favorite-Martian-2012-YFM-Songs/ is not an actual album. JonEthan, who reviewed it, commented that

Quote:
@GreenBaron No, it is not the real cover, and no, this is not a real album. All of the songs were released as singles on iTunes, without any real package.
I'm not sure if it would warrant a deletion but just want to bring it to your attention

@Snide You missed them entirely. They were posted back in February. Sorry, but it looks like you're going to have to wait until next year to apply. And Jom usually puts out the requirements when applications are open.

Yes, thank you, and the same to you.

I decided this year that it'd be way easier to hang a portrait of Jesus because I only had one nail.

I would make a crucifixion joke but I'd rather not piss off anybody.

Ban request for a user called "marbledking" after he practically gave us the middle finger after ScuroFantasma tried to give him some constructive criticism on his review.

He posted this shortly after:

Quote:
You are not serious, are you? I don't recall asking for any "help". Stop getting more ridiculous plz. Personally, i don't need a random guy who is into Napalm Death and Cannibal Corpse, to offer me ANY type of advice, let alone my reviews. When you grow up, you will stop being jealous on others who have acquired a more general and in depth taste in music than yourself.
You can also ask more of your friends to give negative votes on this review, i don't really care. I'm more laughing on your part because you got offended that i'm also into death metal, which is probably something inexplicable to you, given the fact that i'm also into power/heavy/speed/prog/epic/thrash and other genres.

So i'm also offering you both an advice. Grow up, listen to some serious music, buy some vinyls/cds, read some lyrics, attend concerts, get out of the house and then we can talk about reviews. I also offer advices on what releases to buy, from 1967 to 2014. Of course, this is written in a friendly tone, as always. Have a good day.
Here is where the trouble started: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/61947/Bolt-Thrower-Mercenary/#lastpost

If I may also request that the review be deleted as well just so that the argument won't have to go further.
