Yeah, I'm still working on everything; hoping to have it up and running in about 4-5 days, and have most of the information and a critiquing outline up in less time than that. ^^
But I need to release Hayao's VCVs as well, so it's gonna be a bit of a rushed intro video. x__x''
ANYWAY. CRITIQUE OF YOUR CRITIQUE.
Firstly, may I say, great job on getting the idea at the same time as me XD
Seems very well planned and such, nice to see someone else who cares about quality, thanks.
Now, onto the critique!
Ah, it's pretty. HOWEVER. Maybe it's a little intimidating? I'd suggest changing the colors a bit.
Now, I'm trying my hardest not to focus on this bit too much, since it isn't what the main point of this is, but gosh.
The two content browsing bars are REALLY distracting. D:
It would make more sense to have them either all in the same place, or to move News and Home up with Site rules and such, while having the review searching buttons on the second bar where they are now.
okay website designer mode, OFF. Back to your critiquing.
Critique style- 16/25
Okay, it could stand to be a little less informal, as well as... limited. You hardly point out problems and weak areas, you really just stick to what the outline says...
He’s got decent samples.
That. Is. A crappy crit. XD That's one of the worse examples on the site.
You should really try to prolong it and try to speak like you're actually talking to the person in front of you.
How could they improve?
What would you do?
A higher quality program?
Where exactly did they go wrong to make it JUST decent?
Well, it still does it's job, can't be too harsh.
...Is almost non-existent.
Deary me ^^''
Some of the time you're really quite harsh and stick with it, and some of the time you're just kind of... "Yay, they're a wonderful bank~~~"... Then sometimes you're just kinda like... "...whatever, no comment, this bank is kinda cool."
Really. You could stand to do more background research, as well (Yasu is a boy, by the way, the whole girl thing was someone being annoyed at a female>male voicer.)
PLEASE EXPLAIN. XD
You should probably CLEARLY state how much each category is worth on each critique...
And the star system is a bit all over the place.
Also, while I was looking over your criteria, it's a little limited for it to be out of ten, right?
I personally do mine out of 100. ^^ Makes it more accurate, whereas in yours, it's really... Well, inaccurate, leaves room for the imagination. Also, really easy to get a 0 or to get a 2.
And I'd recommend including small sections on the oto and design.
Even if they don't add to the total score, they are important parts of the UTAUloid. Particularly the oto, but if a design is bad, they may go unnoticed.
Please consider my suggestions. ^^''
Overall, yes it does it's job, and yes, people will appreciate it...
But it really does need a bit of work to be more accurate and the best it can be!
(H-holy unripe doo-doo covered banana long post is long XD I get so carried away writing crits XD)
