edit So you thought that using the Euro as currency would be all fun and games?

Second review. Had a good review from Sycamore, did some changes, got some help from Modus, and looking for any additional issues. The format is still a bit funky, due to the rumbling nature of the narrator. Thanks. ~Jewriken.GIF 21:05, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Okay, Mordillo, I'll review your European article, but don't expect me to "get" it.   Le Cejak <0:25, 26 Jul 2008>
Humour: 6.2 blaaah blah blah
  • Introduction -6- Well no giggles, but it's not horrible. I don't pay attention to the international news, so this stuff about foreign currency is kinda lost on me. I knew that I was a bad choice to review this, I never get it. Well, what would I add? I'm not sure, because you've got the social commentary in there... hmmm, sadly I think that's all she wrote on that section. Unfortunately, it's the introduction so this section is more important
  • There he is, that sneaky bastard -7- Yeah, that works. I'm always up for the simple types of comedy, like "items being crashed around the room." Stick with the basics, I always say. Doesn't need anything more, really.
  • Seeking an alternative -7- Well, here's another 7, which I know you care deeply about. Eh, well, there's some foreign in there, but I can overlook that (seeing as how I took 3 years of it in High School). I enjoy the stereotype angle, anyway.
  • I need to find a camera -6- I hate giving 6's to good writers, and this is good writing, its just not the most entertaining. Maybe someone who gives a crap about knows more about exchange rates and "invoices" would find this more interesting, but for me it's pretty straightforward and predictable.
  • Is to buy a new monitor -5- Someone drew a Euro sign on your monitor = got it. Everything else = no, didn't understand (which artist? who?). This section is short and unnecessary IMO, but like UU says, it's just my opinion.
  • Case 232423: {{USERNAME}} versus Magic Marker inc. -6- So suddenly the person reading the article is an artist? Was I an artist all along, or did you just make that up? This last section is confusing. Does it have something to do with printing a Euro sign on your monitor? Does it have something to do with the artist in the last section? Honestly, I'm too dumb/American to understand what's going on here.
Concept: 6 Here's what's annoying about this: the title, mostly. "All fun and games" suggests that the article would contrast the GOOD parts of whatever you're talking about (Euros in this case?) drastically with the BAD parts. As far as I can tell, you only really talked about the "bad" of using the Euro, and I didn't really understand what you were talking about. You need to go overboard is what I'm saying, but I don't see how you can.

First of all, are you trying to convince us to use Euros? Okay, contrast it with the other types of currency more. I notice you did a sentence in there about the other currency types, but that's not enough. Second, is this in a business format, like, from the perspective of a business? Maybe that's why I got so lost. There's some mingling of "artists" in there that I didn't understand. Is the business paying for art with Euros? I'm lost with the concept. TO REITERATE: You need to have a heavier contrast between what's good and bad about Euros.

Prose and formatting: 9 Looks above average, but it's not very hi-brow prose, compared with other things I've seen. I guess I reserve 10's for hi-falutent wordy words.
Images: 8 I never know how to score images.
Miscellaneous: 7.3
Final Score: 36.5 I guess I'm not the best person to review this, seeing as how I know jack about the Euro, but I guess it's good to get other points of view. I try to not be too American in my articles, too, but I can't help it. Mordillo, thanks for asking me to review this! It's been such a long time. If you fix up the article and want me to look at it again, just call me up. Keep on truckin'!
