I'll think you all know that the Pee Review has been a bit neglected lately. The queue is chock-a-block full, and no one seems to be doing anything about it. There's been a lot of talk on this subject. But I think there has been enough talk - we need a bit more action.

What I would love to see is a virtually empty queue. How do you do that? By making people review articles. And how are you going to make them do those reviews? Why, hold a competition of course!

So here's my proposal - contestants sign their name on this page. Then they are given one week. Every Pee Review they do, they will add next to their signature. Every in-depth review counts as a point. Every non in-depth review counts as minus one point. He with the most points wins.

I know there are still some niggly things that will have to be sorted out before we actually hold a competition like this - time zones, a starting time, an award template, etc - so if you have any comments or suggestions to help organize this thing, please leave a message here.--Some_idiot.png 05:59, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hey I did a review. Recently, even. And apparently it didn't even suck copious amounts of dick. My aim is to stay in the green! HELL YA -- Soldat Teh PWNerator (pwnt!) 05:26, Sep 5
  • Screw it, let's add myself just so I can not do any reviews during the thing and make everyone else look better by comparison. ~ Pointy (talk) (stalk) -- 20100905 - 14:00 (UTC)

  • Symbol comment vote Comment. I have nothing to contribute but I just wanted to say I think this is a great idea.  Avast Matey!!! Happytimes are here!* Happytimes.gif (talk) (stalk) Π   ~ Xkey280 ~  03 Sep 2010 ~ 06:58 (UTC)
  • Symbol comment vote Comment. Excellent Idea. The only downfall I can foresee is that you're going to have a lot of people reviewing the same articles at the same time. Maybe talk with ChiefJustice or UU to see if we can get an exception to the "Only book one review at a time" rule for the week of this competition. That way, everyone can reserve their reviews so you don't end up with multiple people working on the same one. --John Lydon 13:22, September 3, 2010 (UTC)
    • Cant you just use one of those nifty pee-claiming templates? We don't get much work on the queue done if we all end up reviewing the same articles... --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 13:41, September 3, 2010 (UTC)
      • Yeah, I'd agree with that - have some simple rules: book a review before you do it, no double-booking reviews someone else has claimed, and don't book more than one review at a time - book 'em when you finish the last one. Sound good? --UU - natter UU Manhole 13:47, Sep 3
        • Incidentally, I'd strongly suggest the "book one at a time" rule is enforced, otherwise what's to stop someone booking a metric fuckton of reviews, knackering the whole "competition" part of it? I'm not saying anyone would. I'm just saying it would be possible. --UU - natter UU Manhole 14:19, Sep 3
  • Question in general - what about review requests that have been in the queue for a goodly long while and the person requesting the review has been gone over a month? Would there be any point in doing those? At least it seems more likely that folks will go near them now.
Anyhow, I reckon this is a fine idea... not that I have any intention of taking part.
But awarding runners-up would help for those who expect to have no hope, too. ~ Pointy (talk) (stalk) -- 20100903 - 15:10 (UTC)
I'll be at Cajek's list, ready to check, when you need me...but it'll be a pain in the ass.--HM (T) 00:43, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
I think that should definitely be the case here - Rule: YOU MAY ONLY BOOK ONE ARTICLE AT A TIME.
If there are no other problems to to be sorted out, it would be good to start deciding a starting time, considering time zones. And it would be great if someone could create a template for the winner and runner up.--Some_idiot.png 00:46, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
If you promise not to egg me when they suck, I could make some templates. Be better if someone else does, though. I mean, since I'll probably forget and not actually get around to it. ~ Pointy (talk) (stalk) -- 20100904 - 00:52 (UTC)
Can we have a template for participant, and maybe one for 'staying in the green' and having more in depth than shitty reviews? -- Soldat Teh PWNerator (pwnt!) 05:28, Sep 5

So...

...when's this bitch happening? —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 14:24, September 5, 2010 (UTC)

Well, we have six participants so far. How about we give it four days for anyone who hasn't entered yet, and then we decide the exact starting time on that day, considering timezones and stuff? Or should we just start now? What do you think?--Some_idiot.png 22:40, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
start later! like a week from now. I'ma be gone the whole weekend so my already low score is going to be even lower. -- Soldat Teh PWNerator (pwnt!) 23:57, Sep 5
Well, we don't want to put it off any more then that, but a week is ok.--Some_idiot.png 05:14, September 6, 2010 (UTC)
How about I big it up in this week's Signpost, seeing as I haven't run one in a little while? (Been busy). I'll give it the treatment, see if we can get anyone else to sign up. So I'd start it after this thursday - I'd suggest calling it Pee Week, so I (and by "I", I mean "Mordillo", as I'll actually be away when I'm suggesting it starts) can do something with the site notice with a "Weak Pee? Pee Week!" theme, and starting it on Monday. That's the 13th. Whaddaya say? (Also, if no-one else gets around to it, I'll make sure there are templates, userboxes and awards for all involved, because I'm nice like that). --UU - natter UU Manhole 08:23, Sep 6
Sounds good to me. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 18:11, September 6, 2010 (UTC)
Yep.--Some_idiot.png 21:09, September 6, 2010 (UTC)

Is that one of these new-fangled special board games? What kind of dice do you need for it? --UU - natter UU Manhole 08:10, Sep 7
UU you old out of touch rogue... everybody knows that it's one of those new-fangled gramophones that all the kids are into. --ChiefjusticeWii 08:22, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
Gramophones have games nowabouts? Why, in my day, we just used them for sounds... oh, but you don't want to hear about that. ~ Pointy (talk) (stalk) -- 20100907 - 12:49 (UTC)

Ready, Set...

Someone should really say Go on this competition, the suspense is killing me. --John Lydon 09:56, September 10, 2010 (UTC)

As I said, just up the page there, we'll start it on Monday 13th September, and it'll run for a week. All other details are on the now-official competition page. --UU - natter UU Manhole 10:18, Sep 10

So there's an Official competition page now?! Why wasn't I notified by certified letter??! I swear, if that stupid secretary forgot to pass along the memo, I'll...well... I can't think of anything now but it won't be very nice! --John Lydon 13:00, September 10, 2010 (UTC)

It was in this week's UnSignpost, and I linked it in this here forum. What else do you even want from me? --UU - natter UU Manhole 13:43, Sep 10

The scores...

We have hit the second last day of the competition, and the top scores stand at...

Pee Week
# user # of reviews
1 PeregrineFalcon9998
2 John Lydon5
3= ChiefjusticeDS / Thatdamnedfollowspot3

And a special mention to Lyrithya and Black flamingo, who actually at least tried to do some reviews. Everyone else who signed up and didn't make an effort are just lazy.

But it's not over yet - there is still time left! Come on, let's clear out that queue!--Some_idiot.png (CUN) 00:55, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm... let's hope BF doesn't take it as an insult having been associated with me... he's done at least three, I think. Clearly more than tried. Socky, on the other hand, is more in my range. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100919 - 01:04 (UTC)
Templates to come soon! I will see about busting out my less than considerable template making skills later. --ChiefjusticeWii 15:04, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
How dare you lump me in with Lyrithya, I've done 3! Don't you know who I am? Kids today, I tell you. I remember the days when pee reviewers really were pee reviewers. Guys like me and Skinfan and Hiatus Hernia. They died for your right to constructively criticise articles, so show a little respect sonny jim! --Black Flamingo 21:21, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
I remember doing Pee Reviews in 2007. None of you kids were here when I did them. Same thing about UnNews. I used to do UnNews stories, and they were damn good. I took the fringe news stories of the day and reported my view. Know what, I may just go back to doing all that...

/me crosses Black flamingo11 off the Christmas card list --ChiefjusticeWii 21:40, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
No!! I've been waiting all year for that card! --Black Flamingo 21:44, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
If you want to be spiteful about it, I could ensure for you that nobody else gets a card from him either. I've been stalking him anyway, so stealing his mail wouldn't be any trouble. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100919 - 21:54 (UTC)
If you'll permit me to be serious for a moment, you guys have all done a terrific job. The queue is looking great right now, really great. I love you guys. Please don't lose touch after school finishes. --Black Flamingo 22:00, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
He is correct, you guys have done me and uncle UU proud, and the promised templates will appear... soon. Also, I'm totally putting all your numbers in my yearbook so we can all meet up in a year and laugh about all this. --ChiefjusticeWii 22:06, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

Templates

Here they are: the winner's template and the not winner's template. You guys are looking at them so I can decide whether to mainspace them or, mainspace them and block you all for complaining about how crap they are. --ChiefjusticeWii 23:18, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

You're right, they are crap. But being as that it was an excrement-related event, that's sort of to be expected... anyhow, it's a good thing they finally got made. Congratulations on once again being useful, silly thing. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100920 - 00:16 (UTC)
I like the template that the non-winners get. Not so much the winner's template. Want me to do a review of your templates, Chief? Because I'd be more than happy to. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 00:59 Monday, September 20, 2010
That's ok, what's wrong with the winner's template? Is it the lack of a ninjastar? This did occur to me. --ChiefjusticeWii 07:10, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
