As a comp reviewer writing mostly that sort of short review: while I realize it's asking authors to do work in asking, I'd be happy to (on request, post-comp) dig in to a few games more deeply if I knew it would be helpful and appreciated. Sometimes authors don't want a laundry list of specific problems because they're not doing a second release of the game, it's a fair bit of work to collect that stuff, and I'd rather get through more games during the comp.

(Also, I spend a lot of my time in the parts of fandom where unsolicited criticism, no matter how constructive, is seen as rude/inappropriate, so it feels weird to say anything negative at all outside of a solicited, private-feedback, beta-reader/tester role. Especially about any game where it feels like it's the author's first finished game; there's a lot of new-writer mistakes they've probably learned not to make by the end of writing it and they don't need them pointed out again.)
