But... 6/10 is like a D grade! That's... not even passing!
Not correct - 5/10 is half way and still passing... and where I come from a 'D' (not that that's how I look at WUB1!) is still a pass.
RonWolf nailed it perfectly, the vote is based on a number of factors and those, both good and bad, that I try to clearly outline in the review. Giving a number is hard because everyone already has their own opinion of the mod and what they think it's worth. I'd be shocked if anyone's first mod was ever good enough to be a 9 or a 10.
I felt the review for WUB1 was quite positive actually for what the mod was.
I have to be honest though, I probably am a hard marker but I'm full of praise when it's there to be given and I'm never going to be deliberately mean about anyone's mod, unless they've shown absolutely no effort whatsoever.
Believe me there are a lot of bad mods out there, wait until I review some of them and see what I give them!
Dark_Wizzie - a review of SHS appearing is a very long way off, I have at least 10 more reviews that I'd previously written to post before yours goes up.
I'll be posting the next 'Wolfer Q & A' feature tomorrow. It's a very interesting one, well worth a read IMO.
