Now that we are starting to post more reviews on the site, I felt it was time to explain our various systems at work.
Hey, it’s a day, which means we get to try a new review scale. You know what they say, 11th time is the charm (I honestly don’t know how many we’ve tried so far!). After trying everything under the sun, we thought it would be best to try the basic, and actually introduce a numerical scoring system. Only this one, would be something that spoke to us, and has the site’s unique sensibility to it. Without further ado,, I present our EGG APPS scoring system. All will be clear, going forward.
What is EGG APPS:
EGG APPS is our 7-point review scale that we hope will be flexible for us going forward. While, it will have a numeric value between 1-7, in our heads their will also be a general consensus about what the score means. And this is where the name EGG APPS comes from
Take it all together, and you have EGG APPS.
The Diamond Standard:
At the end of each review, along with our rating, you may or may not see the above image. The Diamond is our way to let you know whether we think the experience justifies its current asking price.
There you have it, we will do our best to explain the score during our actual review, but this guide should come in handy.
While we don’t use it as often anymore, we do want to return to the New Reader Accessibility Scale for comic books, we do believe it is a great service. However in order to save people from some confusion, this scale will no longer be numerical, but a simple word that helps explain. And we’re going to condense it from 5 to just 3. I hope it gets the same idea across.
3-Friendly: A comic that is accessible to all.
2-Wiki-Friendly: For the most part accessible, may need to do some additional research, but nothing a quick Wiki search won’t solve.
1-Unfriendly: The Rubix Cube of comics so many moving pieces and characters and places that you may need a degree to break it all down.
