I stand by my review. I have used the same process to review missions for years. I played it and evaluated it on its own merits. I look at map design, story flow, dialogue, grammar, spelling, mission construction, polish, and on down the list. When writing a comment, I always start with what I like and then move on to what I feel could use improvement. I believe that a fair and useful review means including both. Fitting both in that tiny space is sometimes a miracle.
I don't always go in-depth for authors, but I'm more than happy to if requested. My reviews are also not final. I am more than happy to revisit the mission and alter my review appropriately should an author revise their mission and
I rerun it.
One thing to keep in mind. I cannot judge author intent, nor their prior experience before creating a mission, when there are no notes on the mission description and I do not know the author personally. When I play a mission, I have only what's right in front of me.
Perhaps this article might help, I wrote it about three years ago when the Foundry was in its infancy.
