If the product is released to the public why is any form of contract needed and why should a reviewer sign one? What would happen if one wasn't signed?

the contract isn't done for each review, it's done when you sign up. The main things your not allowed to do are talk about internal affairs to the public and show the developers the review before hand and say something along the lines of "is this ok?".

I misunderstood. I thought the agreements being discussed related to the developers not to AVSIM.

The ability to handle criticism helps, but the ability to know when to tell a developer that you don't care what they say helps more...Furthermore, having development experience yourself helps you in understanding limitations and what can and can't be done... One of the main reasons I don't like reviewing add ons is because I don't have much add on development experience, however I have software development experience, so I can easily tell when someone forgot to implement certain technologies that would fix frame rate issues...For anyone reading this, there are 4 main technologies out there right now that can help framerate issues, most have 0-2 of them, I have only seen a few with 3, and none with all 4...1. native Multicore support2. 64 bit support3. SLI/Crossfire optimization4. OpenCL/CUDA/Stream
