Hack Reviews
Posted on Sep 02, 2022 by thedopefish

Let's talk about everyone's favorite topic, the review system.

There's been a lot of discussion about what is and is not acceptable for hack and resource reviews. We love to get community feedback about hacks (and other Metroid hacking content), and we're not here to dictate HOW you decide what you like and what you don't. If you want to write a giant post detailing your experience playing the game, great! If you want to keep it short and sweet, that's also great!

But at the end of the day, the purpose of the review system (and the resulting average "orb rating") is to help other players determine what's going to be most enjoyable for them. The review system is not the place to authoritatively determine the "best" hack, or to start arguments with other users, or to insult hack authors.

Also, I know people get excited when a new hack gets released, and some folks can't wait to share their thoughts, but please take the time to actually experience what a hack has to offer and consider your thoughts before you rush to post your review. We'll wait for you.

To that end, we've come up with a list of rules which are now visible right on the page when you're submitting a review. Please heed them, and then go forth and play as many hacks as you like. And then come back and review them :)

Cleaning out the Backlog

So, I've been pretty lazy about keeping up-to-date with this whole "Top Hacks" thing. In fact, looks like I haven't touched it at all since.. 2014? Good lord.

In an effort to remedy that, here's a link to a form in which you can nominate 6 years worth of hacks for their respective years' awards. There's no mandatory categories, so feel free to nominate only for the categories you wish:
I'll likely close voting at the end of this month, and hopefully have something special planned for the 6 years of voting.
Thanks for sticking with us for so long!

We're back on the Internet

Our hosting provider had a server failure recently that took the website and forums offline for a few days. They've finally gotten everything back up and running, and we were able to bring everything back up again thanks to Mon732. However, some recent submissions to the main site may have been lost in the database migration :(

Keep hacking Metroid everybody!
