Something that worked well on HealingTouch is to not so much segregate things by "specialist" but by categories. We had different categories for different things or types of reviews/formats for reviewing. Ultimately anyone could review anything if they had a general expertise and/or desire to review it. HOWEVER, something cool that I think we did, and not very often is something we called "Second Opinion" where another reviewer on our site could re-review something that was reviewed and give a different view of the thing. So perhaps somebody could do a positive review of that Magic game, so it wouldn't be a be all end all review. Game Informer does something like this with a secondary "smaller" review, I'm not sure if they still do it but I enjoyed the fact that they had room for differing opinions in a large publication like that.
I'm sort of rambling, but when am I not? Basically, while it's nice to have roles and experts, it's difficult to say "No, you can't do this. 'cuz I'm the only one who talks about jRPGs." Plus, it's always nice to have an opinion from someone who isn't an expert, and while that Magic review may have sucked, with a little/lot of work it would have been a nice review for the amateur/newbie Magic player.
Good point, and I've seen a few second opinions on BT.
Only reason I said I was the JRPG guy because Koari isn't a regular contributor anymore and it was really just the two of us.
I'd like to see us do a lot of joint stuff when we finally get going, PJ and I could have a lot of fun reviewing movies together.
Back on topic, how do you think they should deal with videos there?
