Something that I am wondering is that what does it take to get a foundry apporved for the standard foundry reviews nowadays. They recently updated it and I've been hearing different things. You need 20 people or you have to at least 5 people give you five stars. Or that it needs to be at least 15 minutes long.
I have this foundry I'm trying to get qualified for the standard foundry rewards and I have no idea why it doesn't. It has 20 people that played, it takes longer than 15 minutes, (about 30-45 minutes), it got good reviews. It has been up for quite a while and i am just wondering why doesn't it count.
Unexpected Undine debris are entering Federation territory. Admiral Tshana is calling for assistance. Help the aenar Admiral figure out what is causing this to happen....the debris might be more beneficial than Starfleet realizes...
Go to the Wall console outside the Transporter Room on the Earth Spacedock. Its through the door on the right to start the mission.
What we have been told is this: You need at least 5 reviews, and it needs to average more than a certain length (there seems to be some confusion as to what that length is. I've heard both 15 and 20 minutes).
There has also been mention of some internal criteria that Cryptic is not making public. What that might be I have no idea.
Now, what we have experienced is a bit different.
Getting your 5th review is no guarantee that it'll qualify for rewards. A lot of people's missions have become qualified around the 20 review mark or more. There could be a couple reasons for this:
A) The first 5 people ran it really quickly and it just took that long for the average playtime to get above the limit.
B) It's bugged (always a possibility).
C) Some of those other unknown factors may be at work, but since we don't know what they are, it's not worth worrying about.
Also, some people with missions that should qualify that don't, even though they have like 200 plays... not really sure why that's happening.

Geko stated openly in the 4 hour podcastugc interview that you need 20 plays for it to count.
I'm still red flagged at 94 reviews, so something fishy is going on with at least some missions.
To the OP, if you haven't done so already, make sure you post in the bugs forum. The more data we provide the developers with about missions with reward issues, the more likely they'll be able to track down the root cause and fix the problem.
