[EDIT]Let's carry this through the 31st, try to finish strong for '06. Let's show the love. Here's a list of some tracks that need your positive feedback:

There's plenty more, too. These are just some of the ones that have 2, 3, or maybe 4 reviews. Take 5 minutes and review 1 or 2 of them![/EDIT]

Hi guys and gals. BGC here. I'm hardly active in the forums as you all know, and personally, I don't give the hairs off a rat's rump about so many of the arguments and debates and otherwise weird discussions that go on here.

HOWEVER:

In the (alleged) spirit of the season of good tidings and good will, let me just say that this is a music appreciation site. And as such, I propose that this next week, starting from December 17th at 12:00AM until December 23rd at 11:59AM, that everyone make a point to listen to as many remixes as you can that you've either never listened to before, or that have less than a full page's worth of reviews (that would be 14, at least) and say what you liked about that particular mix. *EDIT* In that respective remix's review, not in this thread.

If you have nothing good to say about that particular remix, my personal suggestion would be to move on to one that you can, but whatever, that's your call.

Feel free to reply (or not reply) to this thread as you wish, I could care less. If you think this is a good idea, don't waste time here--get to reviewing!!! (I suggest starting on page 29.)

If you think this is a bad idea, then I simply wish you a happy holiday season. That is all.

great idea

Also, I'll steal this idea for when VGMix comes back up THX

Because unlike here, there were a shitload of tunes on VGMix with no reviews. At the very least, there is a reply to every thread in the review forum :)

Nice. The issue about under-reviewed remixes on this site was mentioned in the Judges Decisions thread a couple of times including by myself so I'll probably do something akin to this.

This is a great idea. I'll definitely do this next week whenever I need to relax between studying for finals.

Day 1:
http://www.ocremix.o...emix/OCR00920/#
Never even heard of the game. I just kept clicking random links til i found something with few reviews.

Btw I think we should put "Underdog appretiation week '06 review:" at the top of each review for this thing, just to show what we're doing.

I don't think that's necessary. How would you feel if you saw that there, knowing the only reason anyone listened to it was because of that?

Doesn't seem necessary to me.

Agreed. Just focus reviewing the mixes.

Great idea though to get some reviews for neglected stuff.

spot on. don't get me wrong. this is not a "themed event" as much as it is just a specific theme to focus on, if that makes sense. just something to help those of us who get so caught up in forum discussion/debates to send some love out to the otherwise neglected tunes on here.

Great idea.
I rarely write reviews, but I'll try to do something.

Also, don't forget that the first part of your post will be displayed in the remix's page, so quotes and smilies are to be avoided.

This isn't going as well as I'd hoped. There's still plenty of remixes (on the first page, even!) that have only 2 or 3 reviews. If not a full page worth, can we not at least get them up to 5 or something?

Just reviewed 22 songs amongst my favorite ones. The problem is that since I like them all, most of the comments are similar. Oh well who cares.

While I certainly don't do this as a rule of thumb, I minimally try to at least return the love given to my WIPs and mixes. If you post or review my stuff, chances are I will return the favor.

Feel neglected? Stop neglecting! Anyone that reviews my stuff will get the favor returned, minimally.
