.My Review Factory and me


Welcome to my Review Factory! I am Foxy Riven, a Platinum rated player on the EUW server. I've been writing guides since May 2013 and have been giving advice, coding help, artwork and guide reviews for quite some time. I finally decided to make a thread about reviews for those of you who need some advice, guide recognition and coding help. Anything to jumpstart your guide!

.How it works


There's two kinds of guides. Those made with a lot of effort and dedication, and those without. Therefore I have two styles of reviewing. A shorter one and one with my Review format. All you have to do is fill in the form in the spoiler beneath.

Short review In-depth Review
Don't let the name deceive you. I will read your entire guide and give advice and help where you need it. This is usually for guides without much use of artwork and only very basic coding. Or just those who don't want to spend too much time and effort into improving their guide. This style of reviewing takes a lot of time and effort from my part. I take artwork, coding, viability and readability into account. This means that I hope for a constructive reply from your part and actual improvements on your guide where needed. If you ignore my review and not fix anything on your guide, you will be blacklisted.

Order Template

.My Guidelines



I WILL NOT DOWNVOTE, BECAUSE YOU'VE COME HERE FOR ADVICE & HELP
I WILL DOWNVOTE IF YOU IGNORE MY MUCH NEEDED ADVICE
I WILL UPVOTE WHEN YOU IMPLEMENT MY ADVICE AND IMPROVE YOUR GUIDE
I WILL UPVOTE IF YOUR GUIDE STRAIGHT UP DESERVES IT



.Coding & Artwork help


Instead of asking for a review for your guide, you can just ask for my coding help. I have my very own guide template which is free to use when you send me a PM. Or I can just code some parts where you feel something is lacking.

I also make banners & dividers for guides. This can be requested here or in a PM.

Great presentation btw. The artwork looks absolutely beautiful!

Foxy riven has reviewed my guide before, and I have greatly appreciated his feedback. For any who look to improve their guide, this is a great resource that you should take advantage of!

If i may make a request, I believe I will need some more chapter headings for my Morgana guide.

Champion: Morgana
Guide Link: Here
Splash Art preference: Same chapter header design as you did before; I'd like a chapter header titled, "Warding". I may need more in the future but from what I can see, looking at my guide, that's the only chapter I forgot to include
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!

Thank you for your nice comment :)

I'll make your headers right away. One more thing about your Morgana guide: Try to vertically align the the quick guide header and the "about the author" header. Right now the quick guide one stands above the other. It would look much better if they fell on the same line.

If you used tables, just put "vertical-align=top" on the two "td" tags.

Example:

[td width=170 padding=2 vertical-align=top]

So I can be your first customer for a review, I guess!

Mobafire Name: TROLLing1999
Summoner Name: theWarchief13

Review Style: I'd say the in-depth one. However, if you feel the guide does not meet the requirements for it go for the short style.

Point out any errors you find. Note that my guide uses both columns and contents(started making it before tables where a thing and then made some adjustments) and due to lack of time I cannot update it yet.

I'll try to do that after i come home from work today. I'm kinda nervous switching from column based formatting to table based formatting, though. I kinda just copied GMD's guide formatting for the most part, and I'm a little terrified to mess with the coding.

@ Trolling, You've got one in-depth review coming at ya.

@ Utopus, know the feel, but it would make it look much better:p If something doesn't work I'd be glad to check your code for errors:)

I've seen your reviews around and I'm eager to improve my Making a Guide guide with such an in-depth review... However, I did ask a review from Amanda, but she's been super busy what with reenactments and such... so count this comment as a placeholder until Amanda's review is done and I've implemented her suggestions?

+rep for the service you're doing for MobaFire anyway ^^

- Review style: In-Depth Review

Thanks Foxy :) Also, no worries if you'd rather not review this guide - it's quite long and probably too dry/boring... something I need to work on.

Edit: I also just noticed you're on my list for a guide review - is there anything else I can do for you as well?

@Jay, Id be honored to review it. Anything specific that you want me to take a look at? Add table coding? Other columns coding? Just so I know what you expect from the review as it's not an ordinary champions one.

So I'll postpone it until Amanda finshed? Be sure to send me a PM when you're ready in that case.

About your offer of help, I can't come up with something atm, I'll let you know when I do ;)

Well, I haven't added a chapter about tables, all I did was link your guide as I thought it was so comprehensive! I definitely would rather divert traffic to your guide than attempt to explain tables myself... but maybe you can think of something to add? Up to you ^^ And if there is any dodgy formatting or you have a better idea of what would look nicer in x chapter, that'd be great feedback. Some of the older templates are really out of date now and should be upgraded, but I never really got around to it and the basic premise is still there for people to study, so I don't know :P

It's so hard to take a step back and look at your own work, so I never really know what to improve ^^ As for when to review, yes, I'll bump this thread or send you a PM. Thanks again!!
