Weekly Batch Updates
 
This thread will be used for Weekly Updates about the progress of the Batch. Three states will be used: To Do, In Progress, and Done.

Black Bolded sections refer to stories -- a representation of a larger task with a certain goal in mind. The non-bolded parts under these bolded sections are the subtasks which are used to divide the story into smaller, more specific tasks.

Updates will be posted every Sunday at 10 PM EST unless otherwise noted.

Updates from last week:
- Set 3 Notes finished by lurker. Now all three Sets need one more set of notes.
- The last set of notes for Set 2 have been split up and assigned to lurker and ilikexd.
- Silvuh will not have access to a computer until September 3rd, in which he can start judging Set 3. The last set of notes for Set 3 might wind up being assigned to myself and Silvuh (split up similarly like Set 2 above).
- A new concept of a Batch site is in progress and a live demo should be available within the next two days. This demo is meant to retrieve feedback from stepartists to further define improvements for the concept of a Search Engine that will allow stepartists to quickly search for their current submissions and how many judgments their files have received.
- The Special Batch for 89+ difficulty files is still under discussion, and it is planned to open by the end of this week. The songlist for currently submitted files that fit the criteria for 89+ difficulty will be posted within the next two days.
- Changes in the Judgment System have been discussed between the GMs, and a new system is still being developed to improve the old system.

Re: Weekly Batch Updates
 
Sunday, September 6, 2015 9:47 PM EST

Updates from last week:
- The Batch Search Engine has launched in its first version and still awaits feedback for improvement. Length and Notes fields for the Song Submissions have been suggested to also aid stepartists in determining whether the currently documented submission is not the song cut that's being used or if the submission doesn't have the right number of notes.
- The High FGO Special Batch has opened for submissions.
- Length and Notes fields for the High FGO Special Batch are being considered, although is low priority for now. blanky has been contacted to add a potential extension to his NPS Generator program for exporting song length and difficulty out to a file.
- The last set of notes for Set 3 has been assigned to Silvuh.
- The last set of notes for Set 1 is still assigned to Razor although due to lack of responsiveness Set 1 will be reassigned to DossarLX ODI.
- The last set of notes for Set 2 are still being worked on by lurker and ilikexd.
- A new Judgment System is in the works and an agreement with the GMs on its initial concept is planned to happen within the next three days. this new Judgement System will be applied to the High FGO Special Batch and the old system will no longer be used after September/October 2014 is finished.
- The 9/8/15 Song Release is being determined. After that release, two more files will be available in the batch and thus September 2014 is currently the highest priority -- the assigned tasks are mentioned above.

Re: Weekly Batch Updates
 
Sunday, September 13, 2015 9:58 PM EST

Updates from last week:
- Silvuh finished the last set of notes required for Set 3, and after applying the curve 15 out of 22 files were accepted with several files going into Conditional Queue. Then Silvuh and DossarLX ODI will work towards finalizing the accepted list by mid-week (planned for latest at Thursday). The queue will no longer have two more files after this.
- The last set of notes for Set 1 have been reassigned to DossarLX ODI.
- lurker is 33% done with his judgments on his half of Set 2; DossarLX ODI will be taking over the second half. This is also the last set of notes required for Set 2.
- The High FGO Special Batch will be sticking with One Winged Angel and DossarLX ODI as judges for now.
- The New Judgment System has been discussed between the GMs and is currently being refined into a more formal document. Revising this new system took longer than planned, so it'll still require several more days (at least the middle of this week).

Re: Weekly Batch Updates
 
Monday, October 12, 2015 9:36 PM EST

Updates from last week:

Batch
- The big update is that the September/October 2014 Batch is finally done after a year of limbo. All of you deserve a sincere apology for having to wait that long and you've all had great patience.
- The New Judgment System is put in place now for the future batches. Silvuh has put together a rough draft of the High FGO Special Batch Phase 1 Ordering which I will be reviewing the next couple of days, and then judging 5 files at a time can start Thursday -- each set of 5 having their own subtasks.
- Sprint 5 Planning will be done tonight to map out what the next two weeks will look like for the Batch. That time period covers 10/14/15 to 10/28/15.
- The November/December 2014 Batch needs to get its file organization done before judging that regular batch can start, and that most likely will be going into next week. Updates will be posted in the Queue/Batch about this.
- Submissions for Phase 2 of the High FGO Special Batch will be open until October 31st, 11:59 PM Server Time.
- Submissions for the September/October 2014 Regular Batch will be open until October 31st, 11:59 PM Server Time.

Web Development Team
- Web Development Tasks are still being determined. I am potentially considering making the Batch Search Engine Open Source as another development opportunity in addition to FFR Wiki Tools, although that's still not set in stone.
- The Bootstrap/CSS training document was finished and around mid-week I'll be creating the git training document.
- The training documents are planned to end this week as the development tasks are determined and distributed to the team.

Re: Weekly Batch Updates
 
Monday, November 9th, 2015 9:22 PM EST

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Later this week DossarLX ODI will review the lead notes One Winged Angel has for Phase 1, Set 2 of the High FGO Special Batch.
- One Winged Angel will try completing Phase 1, Set 3 lead notes for the High FGO Special Batch later this week before he leaves on November 14th.
- Since One Winged Angel will be gone from November 14th to the end of November, I will be a lead judge for Sets 4 and 5 of Phase 1 for the High FGO Special Batch.
- DossarLX ODI drafted two new policies: Pending Conditional Queue Fixes and Rating Appeal. DossarLX ODI will discuss with Silvuh about finalizing these policies to put on the New Judgment System Document. The Special Batch Transfer Policy also needs to be finalized.
- Conditional Queue Fixes that are currently labeled as Pending will start to be reviewed later this week by Silvuh (non-High FGO Special Batch files).
- Silvuh and gameboy42690 finished reviewing Set 4 in the November 2014 Batch on November 4th. DossarLX ODI will look into why these notes haven't been posted yet.
- psychoangel691 will post some lead notes for the Official Tournament Special Batch Wednesday evening. Details about this will be posted in the Official Tournament Special Batch Thread.
- DossarLX ODI will look into suggested file transfers for the Official Tournament Special Batch.
- More planning will continue this week as Sprint 7 starts 11/11/15 for the Judgment Team and schedules are becoming more limited. Sprint 6 is slightly outdated, so this planning is necessary to clean up the backlog as it's messy right now.
- Judges for the first four sets of the November 2014 Batch have been determined. Details of this can be seen in the subtasks below.

Web Development Team
- DossarLX ODI has assigned tasks related to FFR Wiki Tools to the team.
- A demo for an initial wikicode generator concept should come later this weekend.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- The Transfer Policy in the New Judgment System was extended to allow staff members to perform all relevant transfers to a special batch.
- Last week some more FFR-related matters came up so I'll need until Wednesday to continue university-related commitments. In the meantime, Silvuh will continue with looking into Conditional Queue Pending Fixes for files not in the High FGO Special Batch and not in the Official Tournament Batch. I will still participate in Batch Search Engine Updates.
- Sets 2 and 3 were finished in the Official Tournament Batch. This week will continue with Set 4.
- psychoangel691 will continue determining relevant transfers from the regular batch to the Official Tournament Batch this week.
- One Winged Angel returned from his trip but is having hardware issues with his laptop. Later this week I'll try getting to Reviewer Notes for Set 4 in Phase 1 of the High FGO Special Batch in the meantime. When OWA is able to run a working computer again he can continue with Set 5 Lead Notes, although this is still TBD.

Web Development Team
- Terry is around halfway done on the Task Progress Page.
- blanky! and KillerScythe0 are around 70% done with the Level Number Task for FFR Wiki Tools, and there will be a review of the task on Tuesday (deadline is December 7th at night).
- YoshL still has the individual batch display page.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Silvuh drafted an ordering for the Phase 2 files in the High FGO Special Batch.
- Silvuh updated the SAP sheet with the September/October 2014 Batch accepted files, and added Conditional Queue columns to show pending SAP.
- Silvuh reviewed several pending conditional queue fixes. Many files are still awaiting fixes sent or a rating appeal from the stepartist.
- Set 6 Notes for the Official Tournament Batch are up. The Batch Search Engine will be updated on Monday with these results.
- FFRMas will start tomorrow.
- Since I'm wrapping up my co-op this week, I won't be active in judging-related activities. I will however focus on making FFRMas a smooth event with frequent communication to psychoangel691.
- One Winged Angel was assigned Sets 5 and 6 for Phase 1 in the High FGO Special Batch.

Web Development Team
- blanky! and KillerScythe0 finished the Level Number functionality for the Wikicode Page on FFR Wiki Tools, although it does not work on a deployment in Cloud9. A different implementation will be needed, and I will look into that.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- FFRMas will continue until the 25th. I'll continue syncing and frame fixing the files this week.
- I've put together an initial plan for setting up JIRA for the GM Team to make our Batch Process smoother. This is still early in the works and is an experimental idea not set in stone.
- With my Full-Time co-op now over, I'll have more time to look into development. FFRMas comes first though, and judging will still be inactive from me this week.
- Set 4 on the Official Tournament Batch has Lead Notes and awaits Reviewer Notes.
- TC_Halogen and psychoangel691 will continue planning 11th Official Tournament Files and judging the Official Tournament Batch.

Web Development Team
- I've found an alternate solution to the FFR Wiki Tools Wikicode page which allows the user to get proper form fields from a level id. However, this still needs to be tweaked as some fields are misplaced in the wikicode output and I need to account for the new notecount field to the levelstats pages upon my request.

Re: Weekly Batch Updates
 
Sunday, December 27th, 2015 9:35 PM EST

Updates from last week:

Batch
- First off, I hope you all enjoyed FFRMas and had an excellent Christmas. FFRMas ended with a release on December 25th.
- I'm working on a site for a pack series I have which involves setting up a Content Management System. This is a development task that will take a little while, probably around a week -- I already have worked 3 days on it. You can see the progress in this thread.
- The staff is still transitioning into JIRA for a new progress tracking software. This week I can also look into configuring proper permissions for the judges to start using it. This does not prevent me from posting Sprint Overviews, it just changes the way that staff can organize information and how judges can log their work.
- Since this is holiday season and people have plans for New Years, judging will most likely be inactive this week. Once it's past New Years, judging should pick up again.
- TC_Halogen and psychoangel691 will continue planning 11th Official Tournament Files and judging the Official Tournament Batch.
- In the To Do sections, you'll notice that there are still many judging tasks on the backlog. These will be revisited after the staff tries out JIRA and determines if it's a suitable use case or not.
- With the FFRMas releases, 12 songs have been released from the accepted queue. On that note the Batch Search Engine is outdated from this, and I'll also need to update that in the next few days as well; I have a heavy focus on the CMS right now.

Web Development Team
- While the current development team's term ends on December 31st, I have plans on transitioning them to using JIRA with proper permissions to aid in the development of a Batch Submission Site.
- As mentioned earlier, I am working with a CMS to build up a pack series site in preparation for also being able to move the Batch Search Engine to a database where users can add and edit their content without involving just me. I have created a document for other staff members to update the Batch Search Engine, but all the recent changes that have been happening are rather intricate transitions that will take time even with planning.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- After around a week and a half of focused development, I finished the Crossover Spectrum Site that I mentioned previously. This week I'm working on setting it up.
- In addition to the site above, I'll be focused on Batch Search Engine development (the move from the cloud9 site over to a CMS). I'll discuss with PrawnSkunk how the new Batch Search Engine Site can be integrated with FFR when development is finished, which should be later this week. Currently I am heavily focused on development right now.
- I've started configuring permissions on JIRA but they're not quite the way I want them to be. My plan is to bring the judgment and staff teams over to JIRA for task/progress tracking, and with updates in this thread and the Sprint Overview thread.
- On the topic of the Sprint Overview Thread, it is a bit outdated and will be updated when I've given an introduction to the judges about JIRA and Confluence.
- Silvuh is on a New Year's Trip until January 5th, and then when he gets back he can start getting into judging-related tasks again.
- The Batch Search Engine was updated to reflect the 12 released songs and new submissions. See this post.
- psychoangel691 had several visitors over from Christmas to New Years; she has been very busy in addition with TC_Halogen. She should be getting back to 11th Official Tournament judging and planning later this week.


Web Development Team
- There won't be any more updates related to the Web Development Team for this thread as their time ended on December 31st, 2015. However, I have plans on showing them a few more development-related tools.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Before going further, I wanted to say that I hope you all enjoyed the AGDQ Stepmania Showcase!
- For the past three weeks I've been focused on web development and I don't have the time to judge, so I will be moving judging tasks assigned to me over to Unassigned and make plans to transfer them over to different judges.
- Substantial progress was made on the Batch Search Engine site although there is still some migration that needs to be done. I've fixed several bugs and tried to split up user roles to the best of my ability.
- This week I will be taking a Java course from 9 AM to 5 PM Monday-Friday so I will only have around two hours at most a night. The goal is that by Saturday the new Batch Search Engine site will be integrated into FFR, but I can't guarantee that. Development should finish by Wednesday, and then I can work with PrawnSkunk on integrating the site into FFR.
- I've set up JIRA (a progress tracking tool that uses Confluence as a wiki) for the Judgment Team to allow task tracking to be more organized and judgment documents more accessible to them. A training video was also provided.
- According to psychoangel691 the next Official FFR Tournament could potentially start in February. She can provide more details about that in the Official Tournament Special Batch thread if needed.
- Bi-weekly Songs of the Week will be postponed for the time being.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Sorry for the late update, the past few days have been a bit crazy with the Round 1 weekend and preparing for a new semester.
- Sets 4 and 7 in the Official Tournament Batch have judge reviews finished.
- Phase 1 in the High FGO Batch has all 6 sets of Lead Notes done.
- Development for the new BSE site is done and I'm working with PrawnSkunk to help set it up on FFR. That would most likely continue this weekend as I get situated with the start of a new semester.
- All judging tasks assigned to me have been reassigned. Specifically all my Hard Songs Batch Phase 1 Reviewer Tasks were reassigned to TC_Halogen, and all November 2014 Tasks assigned to me were reassigned to Silvuh (Reviewer Subtasks) and the general lead judge user (Lead Subtasks).
- A PM has been sent to all judges about their availability for the next two months to help in the reassigning process for the judging tasks.
- Bi-weekly Song Releases is still postponed for the time being. It's a higher priority to get the judgment team comfortable with transitioning into a new tracking system and getting the judging tasks assigned properly.
- This week will mostly be planning since my availability is more limited now and communication within the GM and Judgment Teams will be ever more important.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- This week PrawnSkunk and I will need to create a development plan for the new Batch Search Engine site. I've gotten the site components onto FFR, but some more configuration is needed. Progress on this has been a bit slow since we're busy with classes right now.
- Phase 1 in the High FGO Batch have all 6 Sets of Lead Notes finished. TC_Halogen is assigned with Set 4, 5, and 6 for Reviewer Notes.
- Set 4 in November/December 2014 is finished. The reviews should be posted in the next few days, ideally tonight.
- Three judges got back to me about their availability and I put together a post for the November/December 2014 Batch.
- Rearrangements can be made as necessary depending on available judges. For the time being most of the November 2014 Reviewer tasks have been reassigned to Silvuh.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- A lot happened last week, this is going to be a big update.
- Silvuh stepped down from Game Manager and is now Retired Staff. He's been taken off all judging-related tasks, and those have been reassigned to me for the time being (they'll be reassigned to other judges).
- A new public judgement system was established for the Regular Batches. In addition, psychoangel691 arranged an FFR Batch Forum so you may have noticed the different layout of the forums. Currently January/February 2015 is the regular batch in focus on the new system.
- November/December 2014 is still going by the previous Lead/Reviewer Judge system as it was started before the public system was put in place. Set 5 is completed, Set 6 has lead notes, and Set 1 is nearly complete.
- Substantial progress was made on the Official Tournament Batch. Sets 5, 8, 9, and 10 were completed which makes Sets 1-10 in the Official Tournament Batch complete.
- psychoangel691 has been reaching out to previous judges. The primary judges in the FFR Public Judgment System thread will be updated with them as she gets more responses.
- There's some more troubleshooting I need to do regarding the new Batch Search Engine site for it to be on FFR. Worst case I can register a new domain for it, although I want to exhaust all possible ideas first. Sorry this has been taking so long; I've been trying to keep up the old Batch Search Engine Demo site in the meantime, although be warned it has information from 1/1/16 so it is considerably dated right now.
- One Winged Angel has been helping psychoangel691 sort out difficulties with tournament songs.
- Personally I need to resolve some health-related issues in addition to university matter in between so right now I'm not active in GM-related matter, although I'm still making myself available as I can.

Re: Weekly Batch Updates

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Last week I mostly focused on catching up with academics after falling behind with the implementation of the Public Judgment System. I'm feeling better now.
- gameboy42690 finished Set 1 Reviewer Notes, although he needs to clarify something with the lead judge.
- I finished Set 4 in Phase 1 of the High FGO Special Batch. I'll put off Set 5 and 6 for now to focus on a new plan for the BSE site because integrating it into FFR is going to take much more investigation and in the meantime I may need to set up a new domain until something else is figured out.
- Going to the above point, this week I'm planning on doing some more development for the new BSE site to take into account some of the recent changes (such as removing SAP). Stay tuned for updates regarding this in the Batch Search Engine thread.
- I can't guarantee this week will have the training document for using the new BSE site ready, although I'm aiming to have the development for the site finished by the end of this week. It also depends how my courses go.
- psychoangel691 has determined the following judges to be active for primary judges in the public judgment system: gameboy42690, ilikexd, Gradiant, DarkZtar, bmah, choof, DossarLX ODI, TC_Halogen, psychoangel691.
- The January 2015 Sets have received several reviews from community members. The general guideline is to have at least 5 different users post reviews on the files, and we're getting closer to that stage for two of the sets.
- The staff members have been rather busy in general so I'd recommend looking in the Official Tournament Special Batch and High FGO Special Batch threads for updates regarding the special batches for now. In addition I recommend leaving some comments on the January 2015 Sets if you haven't; primary judges should be assigned to a few of them soon. There are currently 15 sets for the Official Tournament Special Batch, and Sets 1-10 have been completed since last week.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Set 1 and Set 6 Notes for November/December 2014 are finished and I'm planning on getting those up tonight in the Batch Review Thread in addition to updating the file statuses on the BSE site.
- The new BSE site is up and running. I have yet to make the list of users who have gotten their credentials for logging into the site, although I can work on posting that list soon -- ideally tonight. All the stepartists found from the submitted songs since September 2014 have been sent a PM for their user account.
- One the topic of above, the demo site for the Batch Search Engine is no longer being used. see the Batch Search Engine User Manual thread to see where to access the new BSE site with more up-to-date information. The User Manual should answer most of your questions; any more questions should be posted in the thread.
- File submissions are still done through submitting to the appropriate batch emails, but updates on sending new submissions or fixes should be posted in the Batch Search Engine Updates thread to have the site properly reflect the status of the file submissions.
- psychoangel691 is planning on having more Official Tournament Batch notes up in the next few days; the site downtime prevented her from being able to do so and she has a lot going on so I ask to be patient.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- If you haven't already read it, please read the Important Batch Updates front page post.
- The results for January/February 2015 Set 1 are posted. January/February 2015 Set 2 is still awaiting a Primary Judge -- it has enough user reviews.
- November/December 2014 Set 7 is finished, which leaves Sets 2, 3, and 8 in that Batch. DarkZtar is the Lead Judge for Set 8, and Lead Notes for Set 2 have been done for a while by ilikexd (it just needs a Veteran Judge for the Reviewer Task).
- The Lead/Veteran Judgment System Document is replaced by the FFR Special Judgment System thread. This is important as it provides a clear distinction between the Regular Batches and Special Batches.
- The current Batches going by the Special Judgment System are the High FGO Special Batch, Official Tournament Batch, and November/December 2014. November/December 2014 is going by the Special Judgment System to prevent logistical issues; January/February 2015 and after are the Public Judgment System.
- Remember to create a Song on the Batch Search Engine site after submitting through email. The second post shows the submissions that users need to create a Song for.
- While this does not directly affect users, the two spoilers below are an archive of the steps taken to put up the new Batch Search Engine site. Today on February 21st I cancelled the FFR subscription to Atlassian as it was too complicated and heavy for the needs of our staff -- it was worth a try.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- November/December 2014 Set 2 is finished, which leaves Set 3 and Set 8 remaining for that Batch and then it's done; they still need Lead Judge Reviews.
- The four files with Pending Fixes in September/October 2014 were reviewed. There are some other files that have updates but aren't updated on the BSE yet, that's going to wait for a few days as I plan out how this week will work out.
- There have been several Songs added on the BSE by users, although remember to mention new submissions in the Batch Search Engine Updates thread; the Song won't appear on the site unless it gets approved, and posting in the thread helps with that process.
- We currently have 57 Accepted Songs, with a reasonable number of them not planned for use in the next Official Tournament. Bi-Weekly Songs of the Week will resume this week on March 1st, Tuesday 10 PM EST.
- The files judged and total songs in the November/December 2014 Batch and Official Tournament Batch were adjusted to be more accurate, and six more files were added to the Official Tournament Batch for a total of 79 files.
- Later this week I can look into some more of the Conditionally Queue'd files that have Pending Fixes. I'm mainly focusing on Reviewer Tasks and there hasn't been much momentum with the Pending Fixes and I want to get those files resolved; there were also some more file updates sent to the ffrsubmissions email that haven't been factored into the BSE site yet.
- psychoangel691 should be posting the reviews for two other sets in the Official Tournament Batch this week. The post for Sets 11-15 in terms of their ordering can be found in this post.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- The November/December 2014 Batch was finished last week with the completion of Sets 3 and 8.
- gameboy42690 provided primary judge reviews for Set 4 in January 2015.
- The suggested number of user reviews for a public set was reduced from 5 to 3. This still provides a good enough sample for the primary judge, and the other sets in January/February 2015 require primary judges now that they have at least 3 user reviews each; I've contacted the primary judges about their availability and I'm awaiting some more responses about who can do which sets.
- Bi-Weekly Songs of the Week continued last week on Tuesday, with two songs to be released on Tuesday 10 PM EST every two weeks.
- With Spring Break coming around this weekend I'm planning on closing out Hard Songs Batch Phase 1 which has two more sets that have lead notes.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Phase 1 of the High FGO Special Batch was finished with the completion of Sets 5 and 6.
- The current plan for Phase 2 of the High FGO Special Batch is to have One Winged Angel do lead reviews for two Sets. Phase 2 is a smaller Batch with 19 files in 4 Sets. I'll see if another judge or two can help with lead reviews as I'm mainly doing the reviewer tasks for these Sets.
- January/February 2015 needs some primary judges assigned; I'm still in the process of finding some primary judges for any of the 5 sets remaining that require primary judges. My current focus is pending fixes and the High FGO Special Batch.
- Despite being Spring Break I still have several university-related items to get to in addition to an event that will take up Friday and Saturday this coming week. I'll see if I can go through a few pending fixes for conditionally queue'd files this week.
- A long-awaited frame fix for Turbo will be done early this week.
- The Song Release for this week on Tuesday will be quite challenging, so keep a look out for that!

Sunday, March 20th, 2016 8:58 PM EST

Updates from last week:

Batch
- I carried out the Hard Song Release on March 15th and did a frame fix for Turbo. It's interesting to note that Grind4 is now the hardest song ingame under one minute long.
- Some of you probably know about the Stepmania Index Showcase I had on Friday also going into Saturday. With the combination of academics and graduation planning I had over Spring Break, along with needing to relax, I'm burning myself out by giving myself too many tasks. This week and next week I'm going to be stacked with a lot of advising-related matters and midterm material, so I won't be available until the weekend to plan for the next Song Release (and doing mostly planning).
- More judges need to step up and take sets for the Batch to continue. I'm going to ask for another update on availability for judge planning. I'm limiting myself to Reviewer Tasks right now; Pending Fixes could use another veteran judge, although the idea is to get the batch moving again without putting a lot of the weight onto just me.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- I apologize for the typo about the Hard Songs Batch in the previous update. It said Phase 1 when it should have said Phase 2.
- All the remaining sets for January/February 2015 now have primary judges. Gradiant was assigned Set 2, DarkZtar was assigned Sets 3 and 5 and 6, and gameboy42690 was assigned Set 7.
- One Winged Angel told me the earliest he'd be able to do lead reviews for a set in Phase 2 is Tuesday this week. I'm going to be busy for most of the week, so when the weekend comes around I might be able to do a Reviewer Task if a set is finished from that batch.
- Another issue is fixes sent for Conditionally Queue'd files. So far these tasks have mainly been assigned to me, and I'll have to think about how this will work when the weekend comes around. I was slammed last week and this week with academics so I haven't been able to spend much time in those areas; that requires more planning.

- One Winged Angel finished lead notes for Set 1 in Phase 2 of the High FGO Special Batch, although I have one file in there that has to be resolved by another veteran judge. I'll try to finalize that set this weekend if not on Friday.
- Concerning Set 3 for Phase 2 of the High FGO Special Batch, One Winged Angel is also assigned to that Set and it needs lead notes from him. The other two sets are to be determined for a later time.
- gameboy42690 finished the primary judge task for Set 7 in January/February 2015; the results were posted, and the other remaining sets are still to be done by their assigned primary judges.
- A big issue I have right now is that it's the last month of this semester and everything is picking up fast in addition with the advising and planning I have to carry out; it's been tough to find another qualified user to be as a Game Manager.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Returning from the previous week: I can't promise a commitment to this site until early May after my final exams are over this semester (there are also other academic commitments I need to get to). It might be possible for me to assign some judging tasks and other planning, although my time is very limited right now.
- DarkZtar finished the primary judge task for Set 3 in January/February 2015, although the reviews won't be published until Tuesday evening (the day of the next Song Release).
- I've determined the song release to be on April 19th, Tuesday 10:00 PM EST. After that, Songs of the Week will be limited to one Song Release every month for the time being. More details on this will be provided when the Front Page Post for that song release is made.
- The file conflict in Set 1 Phase 2 of the High FGO Special Batch resolved.
- I won't be providing any more updates on the Official Tournament Batch or Official Tournament. Head over to the Official Tournament Special Batch thread for this as I'm not the one that is in charge of it.

- Song Releases are limited to Songs of the Month for the time being. The details are mentioned in the front page post.
- gameboy42690 will be doing Set 2 in Phase 2 of the High FGO Special Batch. The Lead Judge task for Set 4 is still to be determined, although that will suffice for now.
- One Winged Angel helped transition the new difficulty consultants.
- I'd also like to give a reminder to everyone that the public batches can have more user reviews.

Batch
- The final exam crunch is over although I'm still somewhat limited in availability (I won't go into specifics here). This week will be good for catching up, so my priority for the batches is the Hard Batch, where I can provide some Reviewer notes.
- On the topic of above, gameboy42690 finished Set 2 Lead Notes for Phase 2 of the High FGO Special Batch.
- Gradiant finished Set 2, and DarkZtar finished Set 5 in the January/February 2015 batch. Those primary judge notes should be coming up later on Monday.
- This week ideally I'd want to also get into the conditional queue files again that aren't related to the OT Batch.
- The Batch Search Engine needs some updating for the judged files, including the Official Tournament Batch results.

Re: Weekly Batch Updates
 
Sunday, May 15th, 2016 8:20 PM EST

Updates from last week:

Batch
- For the most part, this week was a success in me catching up. The Batch Search Engine was updated with the three last song releases, results from the OT Batch Sets 11-16, and the two judged Phase 2 Hard Batch files. Conditional Queue still needs some updating since a good number of files have fixes sent for them, so updating the BSE with those as "Pending Fixes" would be the first step before getting into the details of each file fix.
- One Winged Angel finished Lead Notes for Set 3 in Phase 2 of the Hard Batch, which leaves just Set 4 requiring Lead Notes. An overlooked file was also added to that set so it has 5 files now. That is the last set in Phase 2 of the Hard Batch.
- Sets 1 and 2 in Phase 2 of the Hard Batch are done.
- Set 6 in January/February 2015 is the last set in that batch, and I'll see which primary judge can finish it in a reasonable period of time. In the meantime I've stickied the three March/April 2015 Set Threads.
- Summer courses start for me tomorrow and I want to situate myself this week so I won't be able to get to Set 3 in Phase 2 of the Hard Batch for Reviewer Notes until at least Friday.
- The next Songs of the Month release will be 10 PM EST on Tuesday, May 17th.

- On the above note, gameboy42690 was assigned the lead judge task for Set 4 and I'll be the Reviewer Judge.
- Gradiant was reassigned as the primary to Set 6 in January/February 2015 to close out that batch.

- Gradiant was reassigned as the primary to Set 6 in January/February 2015 to close out that batch.
- Accelerated summer courses aren't being too nice on my time right now in addition to other commitments, so while I can consider doing the Reviewer Task for Set 4 Phase 2 of the Hard Batch near the end of this week I can't guarantee it.
- The current plan is to close out the January/February 2015 Batch and the Hard Batch, then go to Conditional Queue.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- As many of you probably know, the Official Tournament Sign Ups are open. Go to the 11th Official Tournament Thread for more information.
- One Winged Angel can probably give lead notes on the two other files in Set 4 Phase 2 in the Hard Batch this week, although I'm going to be busy with midterms and a research paper through the middle of next week. My availability will be limited to file preparation related to the Official Tournament for the time being.
- I'm moreso giving a future plan on what will happen starting the middle of next week, which will be closing the Hard Batch if lead notes are completed on the last set, helping with files in the Official Tournament, and updating the Batch Search Engine with conditional queue file fixes. Gradiant should also be able to finish the last set in January/February 2015 either this week or next week.
- On another note: If you haven't already read the June 2016 Site Updates, please read them. In addition, it is encouraged that users get involved in some more reviews for the March/April 2015 batches as those will come after January/February 2015 closing.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Last week and this week are important weeks for my accelerated summer classes, so I'm focused on planning for the first half of this week.
- Set 4 in Phase 2 of the Hard Batch has lead notes finished and TC_Halogen will be doing the Reviewer task with the exception of Make The Fire Burn which I'll handle later this week. After this set is done, the Hard Batch can finally be closed.
- Gradiant finished Set 6, the last set in January/February 2015. DarkZtar will be handling "The Castle" which was an individual file that wasn't included in a set, and then this batch can be closed.
- Barring Set 4 in Phase 2, I made an Hard Batch Conditional Queue Overview post. The users who haven't sent in fixes were sent a PM.
- I also made an January/February Conditional Queue 2015 overview post. Early this week a PM will be sent to the users that have not sent in fixes for these files.
- There are still the 2014 batches to dig through for conditional queue. I'll address those later this week.
- As far as conditional queue goes, I'll have to see the judges that were assigned to the CQ'd files. The corresponding judges that left a review for the files will be the ones checking the sent fixes.
- Since the next focus is the March/April 2015 batch, users are encouraged to leave reviews for every file in any of the sets in the Active Sets. Remember to keep the FFR Public Judgment System thread in mind; it also states every set needs at least three user reviews before a primary judge can be assigned, and we're close on the three sets in that batch.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- psychoangel691 is helping me prioritize Conditional Queue for subsequent rounds in the 11th Official Tournament. On that note, the regular batch won't be reopening until after the Official Tournament ends, as the song releases are focused on weekly rounds in this point in time. This also means regular batch conditional queue fixes are low priority at this point in time.
- The ideal plan for the last set in the hard batch is that it can be finished next weekend, although I can't guarantee that. I will however make the effort to communicate how things are going.
- "The Castle" was resolved, making the January/February 2015 Batch done.
- I'm actually a little behind in my academics right now, so I'm focusing on helping with file preparation for the Official Tournament.

- Two new rules were added to the public judgment system. One is about primary judge assignment without requiring at least 3 user reviews for each file in a set, and a time window for sending changes to files before their release.
- TC_Halogen finished the Reviewer Task for the last set in the Hard Batch, and the file conflict is something I'm planning on resolving early this week.
- Set 1 in March/April 2015 is assigned to bmah, although Sets 2 and 3 are still being determined. That's also something I'm planning on resolving early this week.
- Most of my focus this week is reviewing for a final exam Wednesday and Thursday. I'm still keeping my time invested in file preparation for the Official Tournament, especially with prioritized files in Conditional Queue.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Last week was an important week for my summer academic courses and now my availability is a bit better.
- The file conflict for the last set in the Hard Batch should be resolved in the first few days of this week (Make The Fire Burn).
- bmah finished Set 1 in March/April 2015, and the other two sets in that batch were assigned. See this thread for more information on the results and primary judges in that batch. It is important to note that links will be provided to the review posts so reviews are posted in one place as opposed to two.
- Gradiant was assigned to May/June 2015 Set 1. The regular batches March 2015 and on have a small number of sets, so catching up on that should be better. Judgment on regular batch files is low priority with the current 11th Official Tournament, although it is still running.
- I'm handling multiple simfile-related projects right now so I'm actually "judged out" in a sense, so at the very least I'm going to continue with file preparation for the 11th Official Tournament (on that note, I hope it's been going well for all of you!).

- Gradiant finished May/June 2015 Set 1. There is now only one more set left in that batch, and Gradiant is also assigned to that one.
- gameboy42690 finished March/April 2015 Set 2. There is one more set left in that batch. Set 3 is assigned to DarkZtar.
- The High FGO Special Batch is now finished with the completion of Set 4.
- A Batch Search Engine update hasn't been done for over a month, so I went and put forward many changes to make it more up to date. It's still missing a few things, although the changes made can be seen here.
- The regular batches will reopen when the Official Tournament ends. Judging for the regular batches is still going.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- I was originally planning on getting to Odd22 and Wizdomiot, although those have a lower priority right now. There are some pending fixes that currently have higher priority.
- DarkZtar was planning to wrap up Set 3 in March/April 2015 tonight, although if not it will probably be early this week.
- Last week mostly consisted of working on other projects, wrapping up my last summer course, and preparing Official Tournament files. I'm not going to list preparing Official Tournament Rounds in the "Done" section as that's an ongoing task that lasts throughout the tournament and it relates to files currently queued.
- In terms of the direction of the regular batch, only one set remains in both March 2015 and May 2015 -- after those two are done, we're at July/August 2015.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Wizdomiot Pending Fixes were reviewed by TC_Halogen and I reviewed the Pending Fixes for Powerflux (both currently ingame as the Round 6 files in the 11th Official Tournament). I'm continuing to help with preparation of the Official Tournament rounds.
- DarkZtar finished Set 3 in March/April 2015, and now that batch is finished.
- The May 2015 Batch only has one set left that's assigned to Gradiant, so I've reached out to the primary judges to see which ones can be assigned to the July/August 2015 batches.
- The regular batch is currently at a good pace; relatively soon there may be the threads created in the Active Sets subforum for the January 2016 Batch.
- For those of you interested in the large volume of files that have received judgments in the past 10 months, you may want to read this post.

- Last week was focused on preparing the final round of the 11th Official Tournament.
- When the 11th Official Tournament is over, TC_Halogen is planning to make a post concerning updates to batch submissions.
- When the 11th Official Tournament is over, the regular batches will reopen. However, I am still determining what course of action to take when it comes to putting together user submissions since March 1st.
- The Batch Search Engine was updated with the results from July/August 2015 Set 3 and the 11th Official Tournament releases from Round 5 to 8.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- It may be interesting to note that there are now 52 weeks worth of updates at this point in time (i.e. it's been a year since the first update!)
- Gradiant completed May/June 2015 Set 2, finishing the May/June 2015 Batch.
- The regular batch reopened at the end of the final round of the 11th Official Tournament. The submissions from March 1st to August 19th were included in the July/August 2016 batch which will be open until August 31st, and then the regular two-month periods will continue.
- September/October 2015 has three sets with two of them currently assigned. Gradiant is doing Set 1, and DarkZtar is doing Set 2.
- There were 9 additional files that received fixes and were moved from Conditional Queue to Pending Fixes, resulting in 19 files as of now that have Pending Fixes.
- Adding to the above point, I've also provided the original judges with the Pending Fixes to look over.
- TC_Halogen has drafted a post about batch submissions, although there are still revisions taking place. It will probably be up within the next few days.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- These next few weeks will be hectic for me as I move into my senior year at university. This first month in particular I'll have to focus mainly on my senior project (proposal is coming near) and other academic commitments.
- gameboy42690 finished looking over the Pending Fixes files that were assigned to him, although there are a few files he wants me to look over. I should get the currently Accepted list out of those up soon.
- Gradiant completed September/October 2015 Set 1 and is assigned to Set 3 in that Batch Period.
- The Batch Post from TC_Halogen is almost done -- it's still being revised to make sure the process of file submission as well as rules are much easier to understand.
- On the above note, this week I'm mainly going to focus on how Submission Rules can be updated for clarity with TC_Halogen. There are also some other user inquiries that I have to get to.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- I updated the Pending Fixes that were Accepted by gameboy42690 described in this post although there is one outstanding file I need to look into.
- I've sent out assignment requests to the primary judges for November/December 2015. More information can be found in this post. The post also details some BSE updates that verify the November 2015 Batch only has the 8 files mentioned in the Active Sets threads. gameboy42690 is assigned to Set 2 in November 2015.
- DarkZtar completed September/October 2015 Set 2. That batch period has one more set left.
- bmah completed July/August 2015 Set 1. That batch period also has one more set left. bmah also reviewed the pending fix assigned to him; that review will be given back to the stepartist in the next day or two.
- January/February 2016 was updated with 5 more files that were previously missed, putting it at 22 files.
- The Active Sets subforum looks considerably smaller now so the January/February 2016 threads should be coming sometime in the near future as well. The January/February 2016 files were sent over to psychoangel691.
- TC_Halogen is busy with some other commitments at the moment. In the near future look out for some posts that relate to submission rules.

- The next two weeks for me is going to be focused on some research related to my senior project and my project proposal, so my availability will be limited mostly to the regular batches for the time being.
- Adding to the above note, several Pending Fixes files were assigned and/or reassigned as described in this post. DarkZtar accepted the update for The star hill.
- The notes for November/December 2015 Set 2 are now up. This leaves September 2015 and November 2015 both with one set and then 2015 is finished. September 2015 Set 3 will probably be finished in the next few days; someone needs to be assigned to November 2015 Set 1 though.
- TC_Halogen finished the remaining files in the Official Tournament Special Batch.
- Remember to check your PMs for any Conditional Queue files that don't have fixes sent yet. Note that 42 files still have no fixes and/or appeal.

- November/December 2015 Set 1 is assigned to Gradiant. On another note, that's the last set for 2015 and then that year is done.
- gameboy42690 finished his 4 assigned Pending Fixes and DarkZtar accepted The star hill.
- Primary judges are being assigned to January/February 2016. Currently DarkZtar has Set 1 and gameboy42690 has Set 3.
- For those of you who haven't seen it yet, the Token Special Batch was opened. You can find more information about it in that thread.
- Several new topics arose that aren't covered in the Rules/Submission Guidelines and I'm working on addressing them this week. It directly impacts the Aggressor pending fix that I had to review as well, so I'm blocked on that until I can discuss these topics with the other GMs. Updates on the Rules/Submissions will probably come later this week, so stay tuned (this sounds vague now, but it'll make sense later).

- gameboy42690 is near complete in the primary judge task for January/February 2016 Set 3; those notes could be up in the next few days.

- The assignments for January/February 2016 will be ongoing for a few weeks depending on judge availability.
- After discussing with TC_Halogen, the batch submissions post will instead be changed to addendums to the Rules/Submission Guidelines.

- The pending fix for Kronos was accepted; TC_Halogen is working on more Pending Fixes as well.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Last week and this week will be busy for me so I'm focusing on preparing SOTW releases for the time being.
- For the January/February 2016 Regular Batch, Gradiant is assigned to Set 5, and TC_Halogen is assigned to Set 4. This just leaves Set 2 unassigned for January/February 2016.
- I put together a list of the July/August 2016 Regular Batch for psychoangel691. There are 36 actual files to be judged; the 39 file listing is incorrect as it includes a file currently in Conditional Queue and a user submitted to files over the submission cap. How those two files will be handled is still under discussion under the GM staff, and when that's resolved that regular batch can start being broken up into sets.
- For now there won't be a thread specifically for Pending Fixes. Any judges who finish their assigned pending fixes will post them in the Rules/Submission Guidelines, not me. This is subject to change in the near future, so please keep an eye out for this subject matter.

- Gradiant should be finished with Set 5 in January/February 2016 this week.
- 8 Pending Fix Reviews were posted by TC_Halogen. In summary, 6 files were accepted and 2 were moved back to Conditional Queue (the BSE was also updated to reflect this).
- In addition to the above, that currently leaves 10 Pending Fix files to be reviewed. They've been split up as specified in this post.
- When the end of the week comes around, I'm planning on trimming the public engine of the 2015 regular batch files and only leaving the 2016 songs on there. The Rules/Submission Guidelines thread will also be updated with the re-ordering when this happens.
- Ideally the July/August 2016 Batch songs should be up on the public engine at the end of the week as well as the Active Set threads created for the seven Set threads.

- Small update this time around. I'll give another reminder that if you have not done so yet, please read the addendums to the Rules/Submission guidelines so you know what a proper submission looks like starting with the November/December 2016 Batch and Token Special Batch.
- gameboy42690 finished Set 2 in January/February 2016. This leaves just Set 4 for that Regular Batch Period and then it is done. Results for the 2016 Regular Batches can be seen here.
- I will be limiting myself to frame fixes/adjustments to SOTW for this week. In the middle of next week I should be able to gain more momentum, covering Pending Fixes assigned to me.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- On my end, planning should pick up after mid-week so I can get back up to speed. This update will mostly describe planning.
- I finished my assigned pending fixes from October 23rd. They can be found here.
- The primary judges have been contacted for the July/August 2016 regular batch period. So far Set 1 is assigned to DarkZtar, and there are seven total sets (I will leave the six unassigned sets out of the To Do list to reduce clutter).
- Probably later this week I'll put together the September/October 2016 Batch submissions in preparation for putting them on the public engine. Note that on the Batch Search Engine the September/October 2016 table is currently empty; this just means the submissions from September 1st - October 31st haven't been entered by staff yet. The submissions might come up later this week, and after that the proper files should display.
- There are currently 3 file submissions for November/December 2016, although they're not listed on the BSE yet. This is a similar situation to the point above; they should be up on the BSE later in the week.

- The Batch Search Engine has been updated with the 12 September/October 2016 Regular Batch Submissions along with the first two November/December 2016 Regular Batch Submissions. More details on those submissions can be found in this BSE update post.
- I compiled a list of the September/October 2016 files for psychoangel691 so there can be initial planning for the Active Sets threads for that batch period along with putting that batch period onto the public engine.
- For anyone who wanted to submit to the Token Special Batch, remember that the tentative deadline is December 1st.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- Songs of the Week has resumed. The most recent one is December 3rd.
- psychoangel691 is taking a break for now, so I made the Active Sets threads for September 2016. The September 2016 sets are now up in the Active Sets subforum along with the files on the public engine. Note that currently July/August 2016 and September/October 2016 have an offset bias of 5. I'm planning on fixing the offsets for September/October 2016 in the next few days (if not, by the end of this week), and then July/August 2016 at a later time.
- TC_Halogen mentioned he could get to judging January/February 2016 Set 4 starting this weekend.
- There are still six unassigned sets in July/August 2016 that need to be given to primary judges.

Updates from last week:

- The current focus is FFRMas. Every day there will be a song release, and you can find a listing in this thread. Releases will go up all the way to December 24th.
- Remember that the deadline for Conditional Queue'd files before November 1st is December 27th, 11:59 PM EST.
- Adding to the above point, several stepartists have gotten back to me about Conditionally Queue'd files. See this post to see if there are any outstanding files that still remain to be addressed by December 27th, 11:59 PM EST.
- Several more judges were assigned to July/August 2016. Set 4 is assigned to bmah, and Set 5 is assigned to gameboy42690. This leaves 3 unassigned sets in July/August 2016.
- This week I'm focusing on a side project unrelated to FFR, and also helping with FFRMas. There will not be a weekly batch update post next week, although after this week the plan is to cover pending fixes.

Updates from last week:

Batch
- First off, I hope you all enjoyed the holidays and have a good start to a new year! As stated in the previous post, there was no update last week.
- This week and next week I will try getting myself back into gear again, so this update will mostly be about planning. It is a fairly long update this time around.
- FFRMas is over with the 12 days of releases, and a New Years File was released today. For anyone wondering about the distribution of FFRMas prizes, TC_Halogen will be paying them out to all participants tonight as specified in the front page post.
- Because of the holiday seasons, the deadline for current conditionally queue'd files is January 10th, 11:59 PM EST as stated in this post. For everyone applicable, please get to these as soon as you can (I am aware that some of you have sent fixes since this post was made, and that goes into the point below).
- Going off the above point: For anyone that has sent fixes but doesn't see them acknowledged in this post, then please mention when you sent your updates in the Resending Thread for now.
- The four files listed in the above point from Xiz are assigned to TC_Halogen, and I'll be taking on klimtkiller's files. This is just the current course of action for these specific cases -- later on this will be addressed with a different policy.
- Set 2 in July/August 2016 is assigned to DossarLX ODI. This leaves two unassigned sets for that batch period.
- gameboy42690 finished Set 5 in July/August 2016, and DarkZtar is almost done with Set 1 in July/August 2016.
- The November/December 2016 Batch is closed for submissions. I'm planning on updating the Batch Search Engine with the rest of the submissions before December 31st, 11:59 PM EST. Along with this, the January/February 2017 Batch is now open. Make sure to follow the appropriate e-mail subject guidelines of [Batch Name] Song Name (Stepartist Name[s]) as specified in this post.
- The Token Special Batch submissions have been split up into sets. TC_Halogen can provide more information on that batch if needed.
