Ex-Ronin - [and anybody else looking to review]

If you want to be a mission reviewer, the first thing you've got to accept is that you're going to need to install a whole range of addons, often obscure, and often never used for anything else other than the individual mission being reviewed.

Addons like Gunslingers and Kegs are pretty much part of the standard add-ons requirements. Likely, you'll need a hell of a lot more.

That's something that potential reviewers should bear very close in mind when applying.

Very true. And may I also add that it will be very frustrating if you don't have a fast internet connection. I have no access to ahything other than dial-up, and was a reviwer a long time ago. I could hardly ever find a mission that:

a) Didn't require 20MB of obscure addons

AND

b) worked once I finally got it installed

Well, after Anmac's post I decided I don't want to follow up my interest, simply because I don't want any editor upgrades on my PC.

Like I said, I would have downloaded everything else, but everything else is nowhere near a pain as editor upgrades, especially considering since I'm doing my own editing and having the editor clogged up with useless items like tree1, stone 3 etc. does not help me at all.

Ah well :)

Ex-RoNiN, why don't you do what I do .... I have an "addons not in use" folder.    That way I only have stuff like tree32 when I want it.    It's a bit tedious transferring addons in and out of the Addons folder sometimes, but as nothing compared to the trouble of downloading them in the first place.
Plenty of reviewed ArmA missions for you to play

Absolutely, Mac - I've got something like 650 megs of addons. Had to separate into two folders. But damn, you need to keep a close eye on keeping the essential ones in your main folder.

Yeah, before reformatting I had around 2 gig's of addons :)

It is OFPEC policy that only persons over 18 years of age can be staff members.


Reason why I am not a reviewer anymore nor a staff member. :(

I, personally, think that this rule is a piece of **** because a lot of talented people are under 18.

That was easy.  Wasn't it.

 ;)

LetÂ's say IÂ'm older than I am, right? I love to review all kinds of stuff, games, maps, addons, you name it! And IÂ've got lots and lots of time, isnÂ't that enough?

Grrrrrr. IÂ'm pissed off right now! Do I have to review OFP BETA missions in six years before I get to review the real stuff?!

That gives me a thought, instead of comments in the mission review page, why canÂ't the readers make their own?

What is stopping you from posting your own review of the missions once released? (in the comments area)

Now that I read this thread, and found that you need to be over the ages of 18 is truly something that should not be at a place like this...

I am 16 years old, and I have done many more important things that just "review missions" I am a Headline news poster at the "dead" but still existing OFP Arena.  I did very important videogame reviews at Action-Arenathat earned me that gold status.

Not to mention a great deal of the OFP Community is UNDER the age of 18, and some very good scripts and missions ETC were made by these youngsters.  This almost seems like a porno video subscription where you need to be 18 or older to call.  That does'nt seem to fit correctly with a large OFP database area like this, where it's stage is higher than any other OFP Web Site to date for the past years.

I was infact hoping to join the Mission Review team, but sadly this "rule" is holding me back from this.  While I understand that ofpec wishes to "maintain" it's mature looks and honorable status, I at least think you should give the youngsters a chance.  After all they have a more broad imagination than those of older people.

I request this "18 or older" rule be discussed with the OFPEC Web Site team.  Ages under 18 years, should definately be "tested" at least to decide if they have good typing skill and quality with missions.

Like me, I understand the basic rundown of reviewing items...
-Quality of the mission
-Is this worth the download
-type of person who will like this mission/who will not
-Ingenuity from the rest of the missions located out and about

and of course my favorite part, the total score...

I have been doing reviews for many years now, and I am only 16 and think you should change this 18 or older thing.

I am almost positive you can find a 15-16-17 year old who can do a job better than you anticipated...
