McB's Crit Team Copypasta

For bumps on threads:
TheMightyMcBTheMightyMcB, please do not bump threads. It is spammy and unfair to other users who are patiently awaiting criticism. If you make major edits to your draft, then you may bump the thread by announcing these changes, but contentless posts like this are explicitly against the Rules.

Please be patient. It often takes 1-3 days for staff to review an idea or draft, and we prioritize drafts with no comments that have fallen beyond the first page. If you would like additional critique, it is always an option to send a PM asking for help to a member of the Butterfly Squad with a link to this forum thread, or to ask for help in the IRC chat.

For full text drafts in the forums:
TheMightyMcBTheMightyMcB, as outlined in the Rules, please do not post entire drafts to the forum. Instead, go to the SCP Sandbox Wiki, create a single page with your username as the page name, and link that in your thread.

For repeat threads:
TheMightyMcBTheMightyMcB, according to your post history, you have recently made at least one other thread for the same draft. This is spammy, and is unfair to other users who are patiently waiting for critique on their work. If you have a major update on your draft, you are allowed to bump your thread by posting an update describing the changes. This will bring you to the top of the forums again. That being said, only major revisions need to be announced.

Please be patient. It often takes between 1 and 3 days to receive critique on a draft.

Reviewers, please comment on this thread instead: [link here]

For Shitcrit:
TheMightyMcBTheMightyMcB, this feedback is both vague and unhelpful. As stated in the Rules:

Staff prioritize threads with no replies. If someone leaves a relatively generic comment, that lowers a thread's visibility and makes it less likely that a staff member will leave a review. If you're not inclined to write a thorough review (i.e., covering concept, execution, a few examples of specific fixes, and so on), please hold off on making the first post so a more experienced reviewer can address the thread first.

For draft threads without greenlights
Author, per the Draft Forum's new policy: http://www.scp-wiki.net/forum/t-10629348/new-draft-forum-policies authors who have not yet posted a successful mainsite article are now required to get their basic concept(s) greenlighted by two experienced reviewers in the Ideas Critique forum and/or IRC chatrooms before asking for feedback on a full draft.

Please first go to the Ideas forum or the chat, give a quick summary of the concept you want to write up (don't link the draft unless someone requests it), and reviewers can help you ensure that the premise is something that will be successful with the community audience.

During the conceptualization stage, reviewers can also assist with letting you know if something similar already exists on the site, and inform you about any cliches/pitfalls/other typical downvote reasons to be careful of with your particular idea. These elements are more effectively addressed earlier on in the writing process.

If you have already received the requisite greenlights, please note from whom and where you received them. If you would like to receive draft critique without going through the greenlighting process, please use the IRC chatrooms to request reviews.
