Board review is intended both to help designers produce better boards and to maintain a high level of quality for live boards on WarGear. However, when it comes down to it, board review is a matter of judgment. This page is meant to help all parties, both reviewers and board designers, by providing a transparent set of guidelines that seek to better define what is and is not expected of a board in order to meet WarGear standards. See more detail on the Review Process Protocols Talk Page.
The Review Board's primary function is to ensure that a minimum standard of quality is met before boards become 'live', i.e. available for public play, on WarGear. Its secondary functions are to make the experience a positive one for the designer and to provide constructive feedback on how to improve the map during the review process (though this latter purpose should be largely dealt with during development).
WarGear Standards use the IEEE style guide for standards. “Shall” is used to define a requirement that if not satisfied will prevent the board from going live. “Should” is used to suggest a best practice, but does not denote an automatic disqualification. See the Review Process Protocols Talk Page for more details.
