It allows simfilers to operate more autonomously, but there is the responsibility of actually getting things done, which is something that isn't intrinsic to the simfiler title. Normally, a simfiler is considered a content contributor as opposed to a content manager, but given the original judging system, the title had a dichotomy of both roles. It worked for a while and improved the simfile process when TS was first launched, that is, having Tass distribute Rickycore and other mp3s and throwing in whatever files he got. But, as the site and user base progresses, change is bound to happen, and this is a necessary step in evolving our current methodology so we can get back to releasing 2-3 files a week.YOU + ME. ONE TIME. Haha, this is true. One hope is that if simfilers know that their file won't be sitting for months without a review, they would be inclined to step more. Another hope is that this demonstrates to not only simfilers, but also the community as a whole that TS is not dying away anytime soon and will remain a vibrant, fun place for people to put their time and effort into. From my experience, simfiles tend to come in waves from a specific simfile author. There's always a drought followed by a surge of motivation resulting in the next wave of files. We just need enough active simfilers so that when some are on a drought, others are on a surge.

This is just one way for us to push in a direction forward. Don't criticize what we are doing in any way because quite frankly, there isn't anyone else that's come forth with ideas and suggestions.

Assuming the batches happen at a reliable rate, I fail to see how this wouldn't encourage a stepper to say "hey my chart is actually going to be judged in a fair amount of time, versus what was happening and that in some cases it took a month plus." It gets good reviews to the users faster and I think that's the primary goal, to start off with encouraging people with reliable notes at a reliable rate.Who is to say more may not come later? I surely don't know the answer here.
