    I'm up for this, for whatever is needed of me. I'll do anything I can to help pay back the staff for maintaining this site. Sending PM.

    Lack of reviews.

    I've had authors flipping their proverbial shit over nicer reviews. [insert rant about spoiled, self-entitled authors who think they deserve nothing but praise]

    Lack of reviews.

    I'm really sorry to hear all that, girls, but at least it makes me feel better to know I'm not alone. I used to think I was the one that was wrong. I was the asshole, being too negative or too blunt or not saying enough positive things. I used to try and try to get it right, because I really wanted to help someone get better. But I kept failing and failing. Eventually I just blamed myself. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who had the exact same problem, even if it's kind of a little late for the realisation.

    Lack of reviews.

    I do understand your point of view and I can definitely sympathise, but you've got to see it from my side as well. There's only so much drama you can take from people before you feel the urge to sod it all. Reviewing is a thankless job that nobody pays you to do. I'm sorry that people like you have to suffer along all the assholes, but that's the way the world works. Maybe one day in the distant future I'll work up the will to review again, but I can't speak for anyone else in my same position. A lot of people get burnt for good.

    Commentary that can ruin a story - a reader's plea

    But what if you ARE writing for potted plants???

    Commentary that can ruin a story - a reader's plea

    Well, I think that a lot of the people who react poorly to concrit and yet admit there are problems with their writing is because concrit reminds them of their failures and they react negatively to it. Is it immature? Of course. But I have to say, it's pretty damn hard to swallow your pride and take concrit when all you want to do is yell "I know! I know it's horrible! Don't rub it in!". LOL. It takes so much maturity and conscious effort I can't find it in me to condemn people who fail to do it.

    Commentary that can ruin a story - a reader's plea

    Meh, I can't relate, because I'm exactly the kind of person who does that. I'm always glad to see some humility in a writer, even if it's fake and just fishing for praise. Because see, most of us suck. It's nothing personal, it's just Sturgeon's Law. However, a great deal many of us are convinced that they are amazing, decent or just don't want to acknowledge there might be something negative with the story. And that's kind of silly. Because of Sturgeon's Law, odds are your writing sucks. Odds are *my* writing sucks. We can't all be the lucky 10%. So it's nice when an author displays sufficient self-awareness as to realise that their writing is probably crap. Of course, if they don't really believe it, it's just a waste of everyone's time, but to me, self-deprecation instantly makes me like an author (and their works) a little more.

    Shinobi disclaimer

    Hola, me pidió el staff que me acerque para poder resolver tu problema. Tu disclaimer está casi todo bien, tu único problema es el uso de la palabra "provecho" que como sabrás, no significa exclusivamente dinero, sino cualquier tipo de beneficio. La ley Americana indica que este tipo de disclaimer debe dejar bien en claro que no estás sacando dinero de escribir fan fiction, así que sería necesario que lo dejes un poquito más explícito. Un buen ejemplo sería "ni hago dinero" en lugar de "ni saco provecho." Gracias y disculpá la molestia.

    The blueprint randomiser gave me this little jewel: Keyran's Fetishism comic showroom. That software is eerily specific for allegedly random variables.

    Indeed. Main reason I stopped reviewing!
