    After the fun that came down with the app Rate My Kiss, I thought that we should follow in Dorfdad's bagged footsteps and take one for the team. This would involve picking up a team that none of us really wants, but we're so intrigued by it that we have to know how it plays (Tapping the Dead might have been a qualifier for me).

    I would like to see who would step up and be a member of the TOFTT (Take One For The Team) Team... And, yes, I realize that technically that would mean that the word "team" is used back to back. But that adds to the strangeness of the the group.

    So if you're interested you can sign up and agree to at some point TOFTT on a game if there is enough demand from the team. These should be for games that are in the lower price range so that nobody feels like they're obligated to shell out a bunch of money on a crappy app just to TOFTT.

    The person would then make sure that a full review of the game is put out for the rest of us to see. Where possible a video would be made, but it'll be hard to follow in the wake of the Masked Kisser. Then we would try to go through the whole TOFTT Team before someone has to endure the ordeal a second time.

    So who will stand up and TOFTT? I put my hat in the ring and stand ready to do my part for the good of all TouchArcade.

    TOFTT'ers Unite!

    I'll take part in this. I frequently buy worthless apps even when I know they are worthless. I have no problem blowing a buck or two for the betterment of others.

    Okay... it sounds like we have some TOFTT'ers out there. Now we just have to see how to make it work. I'm thinking that it can happen just like the "Rate My Kiss" thread that started the whole thing.

    Once a game comes out that is in the category of "No way do I think I really want this, but, man, I'm really curious about what it's like" a thread will start and ask for TOFTT's help. A member can then step up in the thread and call the game. They'll do the review and give everyone the rundown, saving the rest o us, but also helping our curiosity.

    Keep in mind, you don't have to do this... it's purely a volunteer type of thing. If you want to be a TOFTT'er just watch for the threads and see when the call come out. If you feel it's a mission for you just let everyone on the thread know that you're TOFTT'ing the game and they'll know to expect a review from you. If it's not one for you, just wait until another one comes along.

    And just to let Dorfdad know... after the review I got the game and my wife and I had a great laugh rating the kisses... but went for our own rating system later. That was all due to the TOFTT. I never would have gotten the game (not that I'll play it a lot) without the rave first member of TOFTT!

    Sure. If it only involves reviewing apps. I mean, I've been bored, as I've had no direct requests, and no reason to review common apps. I'll TOFTT. If it only involves reviewing apps.
