Hypercritical Jerk will review your missions...
 
Well, I like making missions with the foundry but I don't have the kind of free time to give them the attention they deserve. And since one or two people have graciously volunteered to work as reviewers (and are now completely inundated with requests) I thought I'd offer to help out, too. So, instead of creating new missions that suck, I'll nit-pick anyone elses mission for them.

Be warned though. I'm a jerk.

Thats right. As the title states - I am a hypercritical jerk. I offer my services as a mission reviewer for anyone who can take brutal, honest criticism. I wil call 'em like I see 'em. I will call you on every grammar mistake, spelling error, or punctuation flub. The first plot hole discovered in your story will earn my scorn. If I find a second plot hole, my scornful harrasment will make you want to climb into that plot hole and pull it in after you. My reviews will not be for timid authors.

But if you get 4 or 5 stars out of me, you really have one H of a good mission.

Anyway, if there are some authors with some intestinal fortitude out there, send me your mission titles. All I ask for in return is that if my review makes you cry, you MUST tell me. Tears are the fuel that keeps my criticism engine running, afterall.

WAMAHahahahahahaha (the laughter of a hypercritical jerk...)

Advertising yourself as a "hyper-critical" jerk-style reviewer may not be the best way to people to flock to you for reviews. I'm not really sure for how many people this may be true, but for many authors, it is there first go at a mission. Professional and most of all, constructive criticism is accepted and even welcomed by most authors. So if you're actually interested in helping, I'd suggest you change your manner.

Furthermore, it's not a matter of "intestinal fortitude". Why get information from a rude reviewer when they can ask around elsewhere and get the same information in a more kindly manner? I fear that you may go hungry if you must feast solely on tears.

Unless you can give constructive criticism, then your feedback is useless.

Here, take a shot at mine. Even a useless review is a review.

Trembler: Find out what the Cardassians are doing.
Trembler 2: Investigate a Cardassian facility.

Useless to you, maybe. And just because its hypercritical doesn't mean it won't be constructive.

Besides, it was mostly sarcasm. Everybody gets a fair shake.

Hypercritical and hypocritical aren't the same thing.

In fact, hyper- is the opposite of hypo- as far as prefixes are concerned (hyper- means more than, hypo- means less than, and iso- means the same).

right, I offer more than needed criticism. Its like the worst present under the tree. Sure, it sucks - but hey, its a present.

Realism is grounded in isocritical thought: grading things as they are (rather than skewing one way or the other).
