ATTENTION GROUP MEMBERS: As you may or may not be aware, a new review/scoring electronic magazine has come into existence over the past five months. Pirates Analyze Warez (PAW) published three issues in the latter stages of 1992 and is looking towards bigger and better things in 1993. The magazine will be published every second Sunday of 1993 beginning with January 24th and is designed to review and score each and every release in the period since the last release. These scores, based upon aspects of quality, size, completeness, etc, will then be used to rank the various releasing groups as the Warez Report once attempted but in a more complete and unbiased manner. One aspect of the scoring system is to decide with group came first with a multiple release game (such as Comanche: Maximum Overkill) and, after much deliberation, we are asking for support from the various groups in this regard. However, rather than subscribe to the self-centered approach of requiring releases to appear on a designated board (as the Warez Report did and as we, admittedly, previously required), we have developed a more amiable system which should work out to the benefit of all. Quite simply we ask that a designated member of each and every releasing group be appointed to track ALL of the official group releases, their EXACT date/time of release, the boards on which they were first uploaded and the courier or member that uploaded it. Such a list can then be forwarded to the PAW WHQ by a designated courier on Saturday if each week. In the case of a dispute (ie - two groups claiming release), PAW couriers will be assigned to contact the boards in question and request evidence (most likely in the form of the usage log) to settle the dispute. If the logs still do not provide a clear winned, the release will be scored as a tie. It is our opinion that this system will allow groups to function pretty much as they normally would. The compilation of such a list and the periodic delivery of such will unsure that releases are scored accurately to benefit both the releasor and our magazine. We ask that the group member assigned to the task (as small as it is) be reliable and in a high enough position so as to know what got out when and to try and meet deadlines in submitting the list to us. If this system recieves encouraging support, it will provide the pirate community with an accurate, unbiased ranking of releases complete based on quality complete with reviews of the releases every two weeks.

Simply log on, apply for access and leave the reply as a file attached to the new user application. Thank you for your attention. - Newton P.
