Hyperbole for Attending?

  • Nom & pointless For. Hype's a very active reviewer, very clear and concise, he knows what a good review is, his presentation is near flawless and he's at the review number mark we like to see in an Attending. A little harsh with his scoring maybe, but that didn't stop me did it? Plus, I feel we should have more than one Attending, personally. Thoughts? ~~Heeren ["Meh"] [tecħ] [kurk] [6/07 09:24]
Yes. Orion to, but he's probably going to make it via another route... Boomer will kick me in the balls for sure... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 09:29, Jul 6
A it's an A, ok? I'm not a publishing company or that star. but thanks for the support. I'm not sure if I'll get RotM this month either, java and Hyperbole are both very good. As Hv said clear, whereas I know I can be a bit Blagh sometimes. bassically no objections from me. Have Fun! MuCal. BFF Sir Orian57!Talk!PEE!Read!UnProvise!Awards! 10:01 6 July 2008
Well if we're going to get picky, it's a constellation, not just a star... But I'm down with Hype getting AU, he's cool. As for Orian, I think I may have made my views known on that topic a while back, so I'll not repeat them! --UU - natter UU Manhole 10:14, Jul 6
For - I still don't why we have these votes on a talk page and not a specific PEEING Voting Page. Also I still don't get why the list is not in the Pee Review header thing. - [10:39 6 July] Sir FSt Don MafiaHatBlack.gif Yettie
We have the "vote" here cos it annoys Boomer. Simple really... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 11:12, Jul 6

What Yettie said above...

About the list appearing on Uncyclopedia:Pee Review/Menu... I think this deserves a heading of its own. So lets talk about it here... When Cajek started that list it was a bit controversial at the time, but now it has become well established. There are good reasons why it should and should not be there... What do people think? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 11:09, Jul 6

What would the objections be? I say this is a simple change for convenience, most of all. Also for people who are new to Pee Review and who don't know about PEEING keeping checks on every review....well there's a tiny chance that this may change that (very tiny though). - [17:23 6 July] Sir FSt Don MafiaHatBlack.gif Yettie
Well, "officially" PEEING and Pee Review are not the same thing. PEEING does not "control" Pee Review, we are a user run group, and Cajek's list is not moderated by Sysops. There are also a lot of links on the menu as it is now, and adding more might just confuse matters. There is a link on the menu to our page now... I'm not opposed to adding another one, but less is sometimes more... If someone is not bothered enough to click on the PEEING link they will probably not be bothered enough to click on a link to Cajek's list. Given the choice, I would rather a new user clicked on the PEEING link rather than one to Cajek's list... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 17:38, Jul 6

While we are talking about changing stuffs...

What would people think about us (Pee Review I mean) offering two different levels of review? The normal long in-depth reviews which we all do, as well as a shorter option. I sometimes think that it actually takes a lot more time for me to explain how I think an article should be changed in a pee review than it actually would take if I just made the changes myself. Now obviously one of the main points of a pee review is for people to pass on their understanding of articles so that the author in question can learn to become a better writer. That's why we need in-depth reviews, and that's why Pee Review kicks arse soo much. We teach people to be better writers here...

Sometimes though I think an author just wants someone to give their article a quick run through giving scores and just brief comments as to if it sux balls or not regarding VFH. If we had two options then those only wanting a quick look would get their reviews much faster, and we could put more focus into those people who wanted an in-depth review, and had a serious intention of taking the comments of the reviewer on-board. I no that sometimes people say in their comment when they submit what they are looking for, but I wonder if there might be a way of making this process work better... I have no idea about how this could be implemented or anything, I'm just throwing it out there to see what people think... Thoughts? Trousers? Pants? Aardvarks even? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 11:49, Jul 6

You know you shouldn't throw ideas, someone could get injured. I was also have a think about Pee Review. Maybe there should also be a section of Pee Review (or some method) for reviewing reviews...if you see what I mean...so that new reivewers can get pointers on their reviews. IT could use the same style table we use for articles, but with different categories. Also I think on the normal pee review table it would be useful if you could customise the name of the "Misc" field to one which is more suitable/appropriate for the article. I, too, am just throwing ideas around, but gently, so no one gets hurt. - [14:29 6 July] Sir FSt Don MafiaHatBlack.gif Yettie
We've got something like thsi already. It's called under user. seriously though it think it's pushing it a bit far. how long would it be before we wanted to review the reviews of the reviews? Have Fun! MuCal. BFF Sir Orian57!Talk!PEE!Read!UnProvise!Awards! 15:04 6 July 2008
Well I was going to raise that right now, actually. :-) I'm just saying that this would be quite a useful thing for new reviewers - reviews of reviews by AUs or SKs. Maybe not as formal as the rest of Pee Review, but meh. - [15:12 6 July] Sir FSt Don MafiaHatBlack.gif Yettie
Let's not get carried away. I think what we have is fine - the reviews are checked, and if people contribute several crap ones, someone (usually me) has a polite word about it. The problem with adding on extra regulation to stuff is that often it starts off meaning well, but then people get bored of it, and drift away, and stop doing whateveritwas that was being regulated at the same time, completely defeating the point of the exercise. Besides, people reviewing reviews would leave them less time to do reviews, and that's the most important thing, right? And when things are slowing down a little anyway, the last thing we want is to put more obstacles in the way.
I do like MrN's idea though - sometimes people are just looking for a quick review, a few lines, bam, you're done. THINKERER for one, mainly just pops in when he thinks he has something good enough to self nom and needs to get the formality out of the way. Perhaps for those we need some way to flag up people are just after a quick capsule review. That could help clear the queue a bit quicker too - I could certainly find a few minutes for a short review while I'm at work, but finding time for a UU special, no dice... --UU - natter UU Manhole 15:44, Jul 6
Sounds good to me. Another idea just popped into my head: something that would be useful would be a category or list using <forum> tags which contains all current pees that have been tagged. So if you're looking to do a review you can look at current pees and have all tagged reviews on a separate list. Meh just a quick idea, that I remembered from a week or so ago. - [15:52 6 July] Sir FSt Don MafiaHatBlack.gif Yettie
I vote For UU doing all the actual work. It's a great system, especially since it means that I get to sit on my arse as much as possible. If anyone wants a review of one of their reviews then they can always ask someone (UU obviously)... I'm not sure about your idea about the tags MrTimetoEdit sir... Trouble with people needing to put tags on, is that this kind of thing only works if everyone actually bothers/knows to do it. I normally just look down the list on the right, and if the last edit name is different to the name of the person who created the review request, I click and have a look. Sometimes there is a conversation going on, and the review has been booked, but in this case it's actually not a bad thing to generate a bit of traffic in that direction anyway... Anyway... We are supposed to be talking about my idea!!! ME ME ME! Assuming we did implement some kinda "two levels" of review thing how would we do it? Remember, ideally it needs to be something which will be understood by people who have not actually bothered to read the guidelines. As we all know, people usually don't bother to read through them until they have been around a while and UU has given them a good kick in the balls a couple of times... This 2 level thing needs to be considered carefully, it's a dam big change in how we are doing things now... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 17:18, Jul 6

Boomer's über-reply

Good lord, people. Three topics in one day? I'm replying here, because damned if I'm going to bother posting in each header. I'm cool like that.

Hyperbole 4 teh tendin

Done. I guess we finally have our hard-line reviewer. To Hyperbole, it's admirable that you take the reviews that nobody else wants to touch. You do it surprisingly well, too. Whereas I (and most others) would hardly be able to do a complete review on the articles, you continually write ones that go off the bottom of the page. Well done, welcome to the relatively big leagues. Now get reviewing!

User:Cajek/Pee appearing in the header

I'm rather impartial on this matter. While I can certainly see the potential use of doing so, most drive-by reviewers wouldn't bother clicking it. They'd just write up crappy reviews like they always do and leave. If there's somebody who's actually interested in making their review good, they can certainly find the links for the guidelines and PEEING. Whether they do or don't find the review table is relatively inconsequential so long as they read and understand the guidelines. On the other hand, inserting the table into the header wouldn't hurt anything, it'd just be another box with all the others. The question here is, as MrN said above, is really "official" enough to be put in? We may regulate Pee Review to a certain extent, but we still don't control it. I'm really not leaning in either direction on this matter. Discuss it and do what you will.

Pee Review Review

I'm against this idea. While it would certainly help any new reviewers that pop up, there's no real reason that evaluations can't be done one-on-one. If a reviewer shows potential, somebody can just go onto their talk page and talk about what could be improved. Granted, it'd be unasked-for and potentially offending advice, but how many new good reviewers actually show up each month? We usually only get one reviewer each month, two if we're lucky, that actually shows interest in doing good Pee Reviews and continuing to do so. They can easily be dealt with on an individual basis. There are also other methods that wouldn't create a new group that, as Under User said, would probably be dead by the fall anyway. For instance, a couple weeks ago Vampiregirl/Ethine showed interest in doing a review and talked about it in the Uncyclopedia chatroom. Because I'm almost always on IRC, I linked her to the guidelines, a few good reviews (and a couple bad ones), and discussed what to do in the review with her over the two days that she worked on it. As a result she had a very good first review, and she didn't even have to submit a request at some community page to be able to do so. I was also able to walk her through the procedure in real-time, so that I could answer any questions she had right after she asked them. It would be extremely difficult to actually implement a system to help new reviewers like I did with Ethine, partly because I rarely actually see any Attendings on IRC ( >:( ), but it was good way to introduce a new user to Pee Review. I personally just think that helping reviewers on an individual basis of your own free will is a better way to go about doing things than by making a new bureaucratic system to do the same job.

Tagging reviews

Oh yays!

Two of those four ideas was were mine! Yay,wait...three of them! So what one of them was most rubbishable and the other was borderline. Pah. - [19:34 6 July] Sir FSt Don MafiaHatBlack.gif Yettie

Yea, Nice one Boomer Lets just talk about things in lots of different places...

Firstly we all know you are only going on about Vampire girl cos you want everyone to believe that you actually spoke to a girl. No one believes you anyway. Also, what about my god dam suggestion! Da one about the different levels of Pee Review! To much of a tricky subject eh? Also, give a dam opinion about da putting of Cajek's list onto the menu thinggymebob. Cos if you don't I'm going to say that I don't think it's a good idea as we have the link on PEEING anyway. I do think however that the top five list on PEEING should be expanded to be the top 10. Firstly and most importantly that would mean that I would squeeze my way back into the list, and also it would inspire the N00bs a bit more. Currently I suspect that they look at the list and think that they have no chance of ever getting on. With a list including the lower numbers it would be more possible, and just might inspire some more people to try. Also, as I never actually bother to update that list myself due to being a lazy arse I have no say in this matter whatsoever... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 21:41, Jul 6

I knew I was forgetting something. I think being able to pick four out of five topics from that drivel was an achievement in itself, so I don't want none of your sass. On a less hostile note (really, I was joking (please believe me (I love you!))), I like the idea of having two different levels of review. The trick would be implementing it. Dozens and maybe hundreds of pages would have to be edited to accompany it, and every past review since ever will have to be altered to show what category it belongs in. I know I'm not willing to do the work, so it will be up to you pawns to do it for me. Now get working!Edit this section. Boomer_4th_of_July_sig.jpg Happy Fourth of July!! Patriotic edits PEEING 23:43, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Dam, Boomer, now you are actually too lazy to write your comments on the page, you are making us edit to view them? Dam. You are just trying to break your record for the lowest score on Reviewer of the Month, we know you. Hea everyone! Go vote For Boomer! No actually, what am I saying... Anyway. Why would we need to change all the old reviews and what are the hundreds of pages which would need editing? We would need to change the actual main UN:PEE page and maybe a few others, but other than that? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 00:04, Jul 7
Well, I was lying for my entire comment in the visible spectrum (except for knowing that I forgot something). What I wrote invisibly is what I really think. Boomer_4th_of_July_sig.jpg Happy Fourth of July!! Patriotic edits PEEING 00:25, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
Did you explain which pages would need changing in invisible ink? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 00:30, Jul 7
Well, first we have to figure out how we're going to do this! There are loads of things we'll need to change, as well as pages that would need to be created to accommodate the new system. Do we direct the "minor" reviews to the regular reviewed section or do we make a new one? In either case, how do we do it? Will we create another submission box below the normal one for the minor reviews or do we put the submission area for the good reviews somewhere else entirely? Will we create a new guidelines page to explain the system in detail? Who will write it? There are plenty of questions that still need to be answered. This isn't a minor change, we're altering something that's been in place for years now. We have to be sure of what we're doing. Boomer_4th_of_July_sig.jpg Happy Fourth of July!! Patriotic edits PEEING 01:03, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
Hang on, did Boomer just say something useful? /me faints. One option would be to just copy the code which is there now and create new pages for "short" reviews. Leave things as they are, but just have two different submit boxes, and two new boxes on the Pee Menu to reflect them. The old reviews and everything related to them would stay the same, but people who just wanted a short review would put their request into the appropriate box. I could probably do the coding for this, but I think some of the pages which would need editing are protected. I suspect we would need help from Spang... I don't think my suggestion is ideal though, as it is a bit complex, and would make a mess of the Pee Menu. Hopefully some other people will make some better suggestions... Do people really think all this would be worth the bother, and does anyone have any suggestions? Chaps? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 01:28, Jul 7
A more simple option could be if we adopted a convention whereby if you want a "short" review you just type "(Short)" after the article name when you submit your review. Kinda like what we do now for articles which are resubmitted for review... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 02:40, Jul 7
Or you just uncomment a category, something like "Category:Short Pees" if you want a short review. - [07:46 7 July] Sir FSt Don MafiaHatBlack.gif Yettie

MrN's suggestion for a new type of "Short" Pee Review

People who have been paying attention to the above discussions might have noticed that I suggested that we consider implementing a new type of "Short" Pee Review for those writers who just want someone to give their article a quick run through giving scores and a few brief comments as to if it sux balls or not regarding VFH...

If we had two options, those only wanting a quick look would get their reviews much faster, and we could put more focus into those people who want a more in-depth review, and have a serious intention of taking the comments of the reviewer on-board. People appeared to think that this was basically a good idea, but we were struggling to think how it could be done.

Obviously there are a lot of different ways we could do this. It would potentially be possible to completely re-work the whole Pee Review system, but obviously it's best if we keep things as simple as possible...

Assuming we do decide to go ahead with this (I will ask TheLedBalloon for some input before making a post in the Village Dump. Led helped Cajek and me write UN:PRG, so he's probably the best admin to consult...

OK, enough of MrN spouting bollocks, what's the suggestion?

Oh, you are still reading this? Wow, I thought everyone had gone to bed already... Oh. You have? Wake up you bastards!!!

I think that all we need to do is get people to change the submission name that they use when requesting a new Pee to be something like Uncyclopedia:Pee Review/HowTo:Get a Life (Quick Pee) or perhaps Uncyclopedia:Pee Review/HowTo:Get a Life (Long Pee). Kinda like people should do when requesting a (Resubmit). As with making a Resubmit the user will have to remember to change the article name on the newly created Pee request so that it points to the actual article.

We have two choices here. I'm suggesting one of the two options above, but when nothing is added that's considered the "default"... Do we make the "Quick Pee" the default whereby if user does not specify the type of Pee they are looking for they will get a "full" review, or do we make it so that it's the other way around? There are arguments for both options, and I'm interested to hear what people think...

I think the above suggestion will only take a small modification to the main UN:PEE page, and also some minor additions to UN:PRG. I think we would also need to change what we do on Cajek's list. Presumably we would need to make a new column, so that people's good/bad review ratio are not all messed up, I'm not sure. As I don't update Cajek's list myself, I can't really comment on that one.

Whatever we decide here, don't forget that we tell those lazy arses who never bother to review anything what to do need to get agreement from the non Peeing community before we make any actual changes to how Pee Review works... Comments chaps? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 18:11, Jul 15

I'm sorry MrN, I can't remember if I said or not, but I'm bassically against this idea. I think that A) It will over complicate things. But more Importantly B) I think that it's always better to get someone else's full opinion on an article and feedback suggestions like we do now; if we don't it'll mean we end up wasting alot of time telling people that they flat out suck. I mean I very rarely see anything that can go straight to VFH, most infact are on the cusp of VFD and I think we should always give a long winded opinion for the sake of those that are going to listen and that are trying to improve. We keep talking about quality at PEE review and I just don't think this will help. Sowee =[ SK Sir Orian57Talk Gay flag RotM 18:50 15 July 2008
Um, yea that's news to me Orian. You did comment above, but said nothing about any objections. The point is that we are just giving another option here for if people just want a quick run through and score. Sometimes people do just want that. I have spent hours writing some reviews which were basically ignored and the user has not made any changes to the article afterwards. I would rather put my efforts into those people who intend to take my comments on-board and just give a quick score to those who do not intend to make any changes. We will see what the other guys think I guess... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 19:14, Jul 15
Well, I was going to be for making short reviews the default, mainly because it could effectively eliminate all those old requests that smell like wet, radioactive socks, but Orian's somewhat convinced me to go the other way on this one. Also, it would be difficult making sure that those that "deserve" a long review know how to request one without the idiots that submit requests and then leave using the same system. Anyway, I still don't have a very clear idea on how to effectively implement this system, which is why I stopped posted in the first place. I had expected some of the other PEEING members to add to the conversation, but nooooooooooo. Sig_pic.PNG Unsolicited conversation Extravagant beauty PEEING 20:56, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Hmmm...I see pros and cons either way here. Plus, the vicodin's making me agreeable again(TLB: 1, Wisdom Teeth: 0). On the one hand, I don't want to over complicate things and confuse noobs, and pretty much everything Orian said makes sense. On the other hand, though, it is extremely annoying when someone doesn't take your advice, and causes you to waste two hours of your precious life. Think how many human souls you'll have to consume to get those two hours back! Anyways, mark me as undecided for now, at least until I stop bleeding out of these holes in my mouth. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 04:38, Jul 16

I'm sure I said that somewhere already... Anyway, I think we need to keep in-depth reviews as the default, simply because no matter how you flag it up, some people won't realise and might get narked at getting a line-a-box job. But a way to flag up fast-track quick reviews would be good, as long as it doesn't lead to the longer Melty Blood type reviews being ignored for even longer!
Summary: for a quick review system, against making it the default. --UU - natter UU Manhole 19:33, Jul 17
I'm leaning in this direction myself UU... I think making "normal" reviews the default would represent the smallest change to things, and would accomplish what I'm trying to do... Any thoughts about what implications this would have on Cajek's list? Led is right though, we could reduce the number of people we waste time giving full reviews to if we did it the other way....MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 20:38, Jul 17
Yeah, what those guys said above me. The way I'd do it is creating Category:Short Review commented in the auto-template and get the reviewee to uncomment that if they want a short one, and then put an extra DPL on the main page for short reviews. Shouldn't be too hard. And I'd be for discounting shorties completely on Cajek's list, but I guess that's up to UU. ~~Heeren ["Meh"] [tecħ] [kurk] [23/07 17:23]
Looking at it again, it wouldn't be difficult. At all. All it would take is a <!--- [[Category:Short Review]] ---> in Template:New Pee, a short message in Template:Pee Edit about it, and slight changes to the DPL on the main page (that I know what they would be, but can't be bothered explaining). Not hard at all, hell, it's probably about two minutes work. ~~Heeren ["Meh"] [tecħ] [kurk] [23/07 17:38]
I still don't like this. How short is short, is one thing that is unclear. I mean do we simply score it and make a flipant remark like "good" "do better" or "QVFD this now" or do we go into some minor detail like what some people do on VFH, things like "needs more jokes in section X" or "Not my kinda thing", which in my opinion is often worse than useless as advice because it's so vague and rests on little more than the reviewers whim. U.U. said that this short review would be the sort of thing people would use to get their article eligable for self noming at VFH but there's talk of changings those rules anyway. if those rules are changed (and I suspect they will be) we'll end up simply saying that "this should be deleated" which that isn't particularly encouraging and will probably push people away. Even if a low scoring in-depth review does this anyway, anyone that may want to work on the article already has some place to start improvements from. Well anyway, that's my opinion. again.

The List and Quick Reviews

OK, an observation: when assessing reviews, I look more at whether the review helps the reviewee, rather than length of review. Therefore, if (as I hope) the quick review idea catches on, I'm going to rate 'em as good if they are short and sharp but helpful - ie, if folks do the old "lol funneh but needs to be more funneh" it's still not a good review. But if they say, perhaps "this is pretty funny - I thought it sagged around the middle, and the punchline was a little weak for all that build-up" - that's helpful. If the reviewee requested a short review, the reviewer would have fulfilled the request. So it's a case of checking if the review delievered what the request asked for. Any objections? --UU - natter UU Manhole 15:16, Jul 28

I always thought UU was the best judge of reviews, and what he outlines here sounds great.   Le Cejak <15:23, 28 Jul 2008>
I think there should be a new column added to Cajek's list for the quick ones though. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 15:33, Jul 28


Someone remind me...

Why do we put templates onto reviews to reserve them? It makes sense if you are going to review immediately, so that two people don't review the same thing at the same time, but we also sometimes leave em on for a few days or more before we actually review. Is that a good thing? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 22:27, Jul 29

...no. I don't know why people do it. I never did. It just ensures that the writer has to wait for the when the reviewer "feels like" reviewing it. Sig_pic.PNG Unsolicited conversation Extravagant beauty PEEING 00:58, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
That was the original point - to stop two people reviewing at the same time. I don't like the way it's kind of evolved to the point where people put them on and leave the article for a week - the idea was that when you saw a tag appear, a review was in progress. (Although I've been guilty of not doing a review as soon as I put the tag on, I always do it the same day. I do (when I'm not busy) chase up on tags that have been on an inordinate length of time, but I think it would be beneficial to go back to only putting the tag on when the review starts. Particularly to the reviewee! --UU - natter UU Manhole 08:07, Jul 30

Reserving reviews is not cool. I can tolerate not doing the review IMMEDIATELY, because if you're looking at Uncyclopedia every second and waiting for a review then you should find something better to do anyway. However, tagging the thing and not doing it within, say, 12 hours is bad. Not doing it within 24 is just inexcusable. Here's what I'll do for you guys. I'll fix the default {{PRIP}} template so that after twenty-four hours it "expires" (if there's a category, that will disappear, as will the template itself, at least from view).~~ Sir Ljlego, GUN  [talk] 02:09, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Alright chaps... You heard the man! Lj has made some changes to Template:PRIP to make it so that after 2 hours it expires. Can you all change your personal "reserved" templates so that they work in a similar way... If you can't be arsed, just use Template:PRIP.

Reviewing?

It appears that we have 12 reviews stacked up in current reviews that have received absolutely no response. Someone who can be bothered to start reviewing should do, cause I know I can't. I'm all suck and no blow, all take and no give. But yeh, we need to do something. Support the troops, send more soldiers to Iraq!

Suggestion/plea for action

So yeah, as Hype mentioned in the dump, the pee queue is backed up to about the level it was at when OEJ was the only guy reviewing, and me and Cajek hadn't long joined. In the last few days, OEJ has done more reviews than anyone, and there are 44 articles in the queue - it's like PEEING never happened.

At the same time, we have a bunch of top notch reviewers about the place who haven't reviewed a whole lot in a while. Not on hiatus like Finnius, Javascap and the like, active on Uncyc but not reviewing. (I'm as guilty as anyone, whatever the excuse). A solution therefore presents itself. How about all active reviewers on the list (and Boomer) do two reviews each in the next week? It's not like it's beyond our capabilities, and two reviews each by our active members would roughly halve the length of the queue. I further propose that we start from the oldest and work up the queue, as there's stuff there nearly 2 months old.

What do you say? How about a little concerted effort to make sure that a good thing we started doesn't kick its little legs up in the air and die a sad little death? Guys? Prove to me I'm not talking to myself here... --UU - natter UU Manhole 10:16, Oct 28

Actually, I'm not even sure if there's really much point in having Attending Urologists anymore. Anybody that's ready for the rank is bound to get RotM within a month or two, if they haven't already. Right now the only Attendings we have left are retired, so it seems like an unnecessary formality to keep it around. Plus, getting rid of it would reduce my already-nonexistent workload, making a win-win for everybody that's me. Sig_pic.PNG Unsolicited conversation Extravagant beauty PEEING 18:54, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
You lazy arse. Actually, I take that last comment back as it's probably considered a complement. Anyway... Here's what I suggest...
For me, the point of the "attending" thing is that it's our award, which is not "official" (whatever that means, I never did understand), and that it's our way of saying who's opinion we trust to update the Pee List, and warn people about giving bad reviews. As UU does virtually all the work on the Pee List, and he's our most prolific reviewer it probably makes sense for him to decide who is allowed to update the list. That way, Boomer gets to sit on his arse (even more than before) and we get to keep a way of recognising excellent reviewers who (for whatever reason) have not won RotM yet... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 19:12, Nov 23
So, you want to keep it? Necropaxx (T) {~} 16:56, Nov 24
My own take on this is that we have several other awards for peeing: the golden urinal, platinum pisser and diamond dumper. Now, I realise I created those and no-one else may give a shit, but they're for doing a number of reviews which have been fully checked (again, mostly by me, but you're always free to disagree and correct me if you think I'm harsh or lenient) and agreed to be of good quality. In other words, they recognise the work they've done has been of consistently high quality. Both Nachlader and Mnbvcxz (and Necropaxx, come to that) are well on their way to getting one of those, and between that and RotM noms, I'm not sure what the point of the Attending thing is any more.
Updating the pee list? Most of the people who "can", don't. If they want to do it, they can ask, like someone did a few months back (may have been Gerry, before his deserved RotM), and if they're genuine and seem to know what they're about, I'm all for it. I don't see that as an issue, really - the main issue is still ensuring that promising reviewers are recognised and encouraged. Being told they're doing a good job and being asked to join is step one. A RotM nom, probably another step. One of the awards mentioned above another... Maybe if there's a sudden influx of reviewers, the Attending thing will matter more, but for now, I'm not sure it's a big deal. --UU - natter UU Manhole 22:13, Nov 24

In the noble and honourable tradition of peeing... I suggest that we do what we do best... Nothing. ;) Just leave things as they are.

Big announcement

I'm stepping down. I'm not anything resembling close to Pee Review anymore, and being the "captain" of a group devoted to the system is almost laughable, not in a funny way. Despite our rather recent inactivity, even being the figurehead leader of PEEING is ridiculous. Therefore, I am retiring myself. If I ever become as active as I used to be again, I'll put in a request to be a Fresh Stain, on the condition that I be judged on the reviews performed since today rather than my complete, rather unglamorous history. In my place, I am appointing Under User as the new Captain Catheter. I had this big, sappy paragraph all planned out outlining why I chose Under User and only Under User, but really it's the rather obvious choice. I had considered upping MrN and Cajek along with him, but looking at my past actions it really seems that a single malicious dictator to give final word in all actions worked better than three somewhat malignant overlords would have. As to why I chose Under User rather than MrN or Cajek, it's mainly because he's both been the most active reviewer for a long while, excepting maybe when Cajek and Finnius went on a massive reviewing spree about a year ago, and because in all that time he's scarcely been absent for any substantial length of time, a claim neither me nor Cajek can make. He's been helping PEEING since its inception, and he continues to do so today. It was a difficult pick between MrN and Under User, but I think I've made the right choice, and if anyone disagrees they can take it up with him. I'll continue giving input in matters concerning PEEING; I still care about what happens to this group. However, I'll no longer be in the position to give final word on decisions. Thank you all for your patience with my unconcerned inactivity.

"Standard Candles" for Pee Review

I been thinking that maybe we should create a list of articles with a generally accepted score (i.e. a standard candle, or benchmark for a given score), in order to help out new reviewers give more consistent scores. I've noticed that some newer reviewers tend to give overly generous scores. Anyway, I did some work on the idea here. --Mnbvcxz 06:23, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Hum. In theory, I kind of like the idea. However, in practice, I'm not sure - it comes back to the old chestnut about humour being subjective. As long as people are giving their honest opinions about an article, how can we say the score they've given is wrong? (Except in blatantly obvious things, such as a 10 pictures score for an article with no pics, or a high prose score for a functionally illiterate piece). I don't see how we could enforce something like this except by having a word with people who give obviously wrong scores per those examples (which I try to do), or maybe making a drive-by comment on the review in question if you disagree with it enough (which I have also been known to do). If you or anyone else has any thoughts on how this could work though, I'm open to persuasion! --UU - natter UU Manhole 09:13, Jan 24
Totally agree with UU. The thing is that the scores are not actually that important. It's what is said in the text which will actually be useful to people. I suspect that those who give odd scores have not read UN:PRG... However Mnbvcxz, feel free to edit UN:PRG if you think you can improve it... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 12:45, Jan 24
The idea is more for a reference list than a policy per say. Humor is subjective, but there does seem to be an underlying standard for the site. --Mnbvcxz 16:09, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
A standard for what is funny? Tricky to do that... How would a standard be defined? We do have a rather nice list here which gives one users view. I guess we could put a few sample reviews as sub-pages of UN:PRG (with links from it), I don't see the harm in doing so should you want to Mnbvcxz, I'm just not that sure how useful it would be... Don't let us na-sayers stop you though if you think it's a really good idea... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 13:03, Jan 25
A list of good "standard" reviews would also help, but I'd need somebody else's opinion on what is and is not a good review. As for having standards of funny, they do exist. Or more correctly, there are standards of what is not funny/formatted wrong. --Mnbvcxz 21:00, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
I think that giving some examples of good reviews on those kinds of articles would be more helpful than listing the articles themselves. The way I see it, newer reviewers might end up looking at the list, deciding which category the article belongs in, and artificially adjusting the score to match. Though that would certainly help in creating scores that we consider to be appropriate, it would make it a less honest review on the whole. On the other hand, if they could read the article and then see what would be considered a good review on it, it could give a good standard for rating in each individual category. However, I personally believe that benchmarks (I have never before heard the term "standard candle") shouldn't be utilized for all reviewers in general. If an individual finds a review to be particularly unsatisfactory, then said individual could personally contact the reviewer, as a judgment call. Besides that, every reviewer has a different style, and I believe that they can judge an article most honestly if they are allowed to hold to that individual style. The preferences of others shouldn't be thrust upon them unless they are blatantly terrible. Sig_pic.PNG Unsolicited conversation Extravagant beauty PEEING 21:45, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
We need to try to encourage some consistency in scoring. There are some community standards for funniness, and the pee reviewers should try to aim at "what would be the consensus opinion" rather than solely the reviewer's personal opinion of the article.
The author is more concerned with "what is the overall consensus view of this article". Not what does Underuser think, what does Boomer think, what does <insert name here> think, or what does Mnbvcxz think about this article. (As a side note, Mnbvcxz's personal opinion is especially irrelevant, as he has a screwed up sense of humor and hasn't gotten a featured article yet.) --Mnbvcxz 22:16, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
But there's the point: there aren't that many community standards for funniness. There are things you can try to do, and many of those are detailed in HTBFANJS, but I'm sure it would be perfectly possible to write a funny article by ignoring most of that if you really put your mind to it. One person's funny 45/50 article is another's 25/50 needs work article, there's no way you can standardise that.
A case to illustrate this: My visit with Aunt Myfanwy - I recall a review which stated that the line about the Welsh for "Megatron" being "Megatron" wasn't funny, when to me and at least one other voter it was one of the best lines in the article. Another example: anything in Category:My sojourn. I am not fond of any of those articles, I wish they'd never been near the front page, and would give them low review scores. But others love them, so what can you do? One other point: you may have to keep revising the list as articles get rewritten, unless you copy/paste them into a userspace area and get an admin to protect them or something to preserve them - they may get rewritten, improved, a 10/50 becomes a 25/50 and suddenly our standards look harsh.
Basically, when it comes to something as subjective as humour, it's hard to have a definitive sliding scale. All you can really do is link to some of the best articles, and that's easily done: UN:BEST (just avoid the link about sojourns and you'll be fine ;-) ). I'd prefer the idea of linking to examples of good and bad reviews, that could be more useful. However, if you think you can produce an example page showing how your idea works and I am wrong, I'd be very happy to see it - I'm never above admitting I'm wrong! --UU - natter UU Manhole 22:58, Jan 25

I really don't think editings messing up the quality level would be too much of a problem if they are in userspace. The idea is not to "force" everyone to use the same format. However, we do want to encourage some consistency in scoring how the review is presented (hence the pee review template).

I also think a list of good and bad pee reviews might be helpful. However, that might run the risk of encouraging "just barely good enough" reviews. I.e. if they no exactly what is considered "good", some reviewers might not aim at "beyond good" quality. --Mnbvcxz 07:43, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi gize, it's me. As many of you may already know, I'm starting up UN:IC again as a usergroup similar to PEEING and I would love it if the two groups could kinda help each other out. As it stands, we're gonna try to be done with an article every Saturday. Would someone who isn't a part of UN:IC be willing to review each week's Colonization on Saturdays? In return, we will donate one bag of muffin stumps a month. Do whatever you want with those. Sir SysRq (talk) 15:27, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

I don't see why not. How about I take a look if no-one else has specifically volunteered to give that week's colonisation a once-over, but if any other PEEING members decide they want to take it, they make a note on the colonisation page to that effect? Oh, and Sys gives me a gentle nudge when the latest article is done if I need to look over it? --UU - natter UU Manhole 10:35, Feb 18
Lol, you used present tense when you should have used future. You smelt bad. ~Orian57~ Icons-flag-gb ~Talk~ Gay sign 11:48 18 February 2009
I used precisely the tenses I intended, thankyousoverymuch. And are you insinuating I'm a fish? Or that I'm not very good at metal extraction? --UU - natter UU Manhole 11:55, Feb 18
LOLNOSPACE! "A wizzard is never late, nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to." And obviously your a fish, being such a good steel worker. ~Orian57~ Icons-flag-gb ~Talk~ Gay sign 13:26 18 February 2009
Orian, you're the last person on this site that needs to be correcting people on their grammar. Oh, and thanks UU! If there's anything I can do for you to repay you just let me know. Sir SysRq (talk) 19:41, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
I concur. -Sockpuppet of an unregistered user 19:47, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
