4 Ways To Meet Your Monthly Requirement

This post was originally written by Jenna/GringottsVault711, I've just made suitable adjustments so it fits our new requirements and reposted it so everyone will see it.

Our standard monthly requirement is three reviews and one monthly activity, correct? But, as you all know, that can fluctuate depending on how you choose to approach the options. This is just a post to make sure you’re aware of those options, and how little you can get away with it

There are four main approaches: standard, reviewing the featured author, using a 'review replacement' and reviewing the featured author and using a 'review replacement'. And I've laid them all out exactly as they would be posted, with any variations that might occur.

This is probably best used as a reference to measure your post up against to make sure you've got it right. It can look a bit much if you try to take it in all at once


Standard:

Review 1
Review 2
Review 3


+ MA: Drabble, Character Chat or Discussion Post
When Reviewing the Featured Author

This way, you still do three reviews, but no additional requirements are needed, because you hit two birds with one stone:

Review 1
Review 2

MA: Review 3 Featured Author
When Using a ‘Review Replacement’

‘Review relacements’ make it so that you only need to turn in two reviews, total:

Review 1
Review 2


+ Review Replacement (the activities that qualify are listed in every monthly review thread)
+ MA: Drabble, Character Chat or Discussion Post
Remember, it’s the same when you’re using SPEW Buddies to replace the second review. You do not need to do two reviews plus a SPEW Buddy review. Just two reviews including a SPEW Buddy review.
