I've noticed that several of us (including myself) are having a very hard time getting just one person to try our first missions. We are the ones that are typically unfleeted or do not play with real life friends.

So, I thought I would start this thread for people who are looking for people to try their first missions. I would be happy to try out some of yours in exchange for the same.

If this thread actually turns out to be useful, please post feedback constructively and politely to each other.

My mission is in my sig. Just waiting for someone...anyone...to play it. It was fun to make...but after three days without a bite, I am a bit deflated.

Although my mission is already 'established', i'll be happy to play your mission. Ive been waiting for yours in fact, and now that i checked, i see i missed your original notice.

I'll get to it as soon as i can.

Most reviewers have a pile of missions that they've been working on. I know PodcastUGC routinely gets fan mail begging them to review the mission. But, if you're not up for public bashings (if your mission isn't up to par with their standards) feel free to drop by the StarbaseUGC chatroom. There's usually someone hanging around there and if you ask nicely they'll play your mission.

Also, I feel your plight on that one. I used to do reviews on the StarbaseUGC website. Long story short, people didn't like me doing reviews (My gut tells me that I was purposely muscled out). Apparently the reviewing missions game is just as competitive as the get people to play my mission game. The point of that story was that I used to only review missions that had only one review mission or the mission that was sitting around with no reviews.

I do remember those reviews. I cant say i didnt like them personally, so i was slightly disappointed to see you end them. I agree the reviewing game is pretty competitive though.


Btw, CardassianNinja, I've played your mission. Ive got some feedback for you on it, so if you want i can just post it here, or send you a private PM.

Just played your mission. I sent you an email with a review. I would not post anything publicly for your first mission. It just seems polite.

My first mission was posted for 3 minutes, before i removed it and trashed it this is actually my second, though due to the short time on the first, I just figured I would call that practice.

So my mission name is "Peace Keeper" by "Brightwhiteknight" and has been on the Tribble list for almost 4 weeks with no reviews.

It is Klingon missions against the Federation. Mission description is thurough just go find and play if you w ould be so kind.
As you mentioned, I have no fleet or r/l friends playing. I would definitely apreciate some input on it I put several hours into it building it from a v1.0 to 1.5 before calling it final. Please be blunt but not rural with your reviews please. I dont mind a brutal review if its a helpful one =0). TYVM!

I reviewed CardassianNinja's mission and "Of Minds and Men" mission from Necrobones. Feedback/review in your inboxes as well as the mission review feedback.

For completeness-sake, here are mine:

Title: The Gemini Effect, Part 1
ID: ST-HHC5GB8ZT

Title: The Gemini Effect, Part 2
ID: ST-HOUAG8TYP

And yes, it's fairly hard to get reviews in; I was hoping with the content drought people will give these a go but I think making people aware that these are available will have to be part of the foundry process. That and better tools for mission searches and highlights would be nice.

Thanks! Since "Of Minds and Men" was my first mission, it's a little on the simplistic side, but that's OK. I've worked in some changes based on your feedback, since I felt it was spot-on. It should play a little more smoothly now.

I'll try to play your missions very soon as well.
