Hello, and welcome to the next generation of the Reviews Lounge! Read on to learn the history, mantras, and rules of the Reviews Lounge, Too, affectionately known as the RLt. Also, let us take the time to encourage you to subscribe to our communities for under-reviewed stories (one-shots , WIPs, and M-rated content) and check out some of the great pieces we have there! (We also have a community for stories we've "graduated"...!) If you are new, we ask that you read this thread in its entirety.
What are we? We are a forum that, foremost, promotes and reviews quality, under-reviewed stories. Along the way, we seem to get into all sorts of fun and randomness. We believe in reviewing every story, no matter what, with honest and well-meaning compliments or con-crit.
The Reviews Lounge began on April 21, 2007 as a community dedicated to promoting under-reviewed authors and their stories in the Harry Potter fandom. It grew into not only a rather large and very dynamic archive but also a forum by the same name that promoted reviewing and fostered interesting conversations on everything from Harry Potter to a Reviews Lounge island. In its first year, it was the fastest growing Harry Potter forum on ff.net
The Reviews Lounge, affectionately known as the RL, aimed to encourage readers to review every story they read and was formed after the founder, Lexie-H, became particularly alarmed at the strange phenomenon which indicated that many people on this site were too lazy to review. Reviews are a very important aspect of posting a story/poem on ff.net, and the forum encouraged each and every member to review.
In the summer of 2008, Lexie stepped down as head mod, effectively handing the reigns over to Cuba and a kick-butt modding staff. The RL continued to spread the word of reviewing through the archive and forum. Other projects included collaborative pieces, a fic exchange, and numerous challenges and games.
Finally, in January 2010, Cuba retired from the modding, as did the rest of the staff. After realizing that the Harry Potter fandom was beginning to trickle out, a decision was made to expand the Review Lounge to all of fanfiction. Going under the name of The Reviews Lounge, Too, the forum and archive still honors the original mission and hopes to encourage all readers to review.
This was a little movement that began before the RL was even dreamt of - (and we take no credit for it) - however, we encourage you all to join! Simply copy and paste this into your profile, and help spread the word! :
I, [insert name here, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else.
I have joined the review revolution.
