Problems With Stories (I'm telling you people write some pretty messed up crap)
1. Why does nObody Review? I mean there should be a rule that if you read a story then you have to review it!

2. With fan-fiction stories it's stupid that they take some stories off the main page? Why? I still haven't figured that out. But it's stupid. Like Desert Tears was posted like a year ago but yet it still makes the main page! WHY? I posted one of my stpries yesterday and it was removed from the main page the very next day! WHY? I ask you, WHY?

3. Someone wrote the vey stupidest story that Ihave ever heard. Awful plot, it was just awful. Way to short and you get it. Yet they got like twenty rviews....when I write a great story and I get none (my story was also a yeck of alot longer). So basically you have to write a crappy story to get a review. Also porno stories get more reviews than the decent ones. WHY? People are stupid. They would rather read humor, stupid, or porn. Than a good, well written story. But if you want stupid and very random then read Stupid Things for the Stupid Soul. Other than that. WHY ARE PEOPLE ENJOYIG STUPID AND GROSS THINGS! Okay I read one of those porno stories to see what draws people to them. It was awful It only contains what happens during sex. Then why don't people go out and have sex instead of reading about it. Either way.




My point is, good stories are getting less credit. People never review adn why can't fan-fiction stories stay in order like the poetry?

SOMEBODY REVIEW GOD DAMNIT!

WELCOME TO FANFICTION.

Go here for elaboration: http://www.icyforums.com/index.php?s=&showtopic=7427&view=findpost&p=204602
Rous Okay. I checked out your stories; well, some of them. I left you reviews, but from your response to markpoa, I am quite sure you will not like them.

First of all, you should not boast that you are smart, then post things that you claim are "good", and then write the way you do. Your formatting is horrendous and your writing is on the level of a ten-year-old. If you want good reviews, you need a beta. And, you need to listen to them.

JesusKetchum31 1. If that rule were in place, would you be willing to deal with the extra "YOU SUCK!"s and "TL;DR"s? Because people will write that sort of stuff to get out of reviewing...

2. Not sure what you're talking about.

3. I have to break this one down point by point.

a. What do you know about "too short?" Sometimes I don't want to read stories that are too long. Sometimes I write, or prefer to read, stories that are only 100 words long. Too short for you, maybe, but not too short for other people. Besides, haven't you ever heard "TL;DR"? It means "Too long, didn't read."

b. The amount of reviews a fic gets has more to do with its fandom and genre than its length, quality, etc.

c. Ficwad is one of the few sites left that allows erotica, so a lot of people may be here just for that.

d. "Why are people enjoying stupid and gross things?" I'm wondering the same thing. You see, I think Naruto is stupid and gross. However, you don't see me complaining about the fact that people would dare write fanfics about it. I recognize that not all people think as I do. So I just ignore naruto fics, unless I'm asked to beta.

e. Reading a pronfic is a lot safer and better for society than going out and having sex with something. Less STDs, less unwanted pregnancy, less DRAMA.

In conclusion: the world does not revolve around your preferences, and shouting about the fact that people dare think, feel, or act differently than you just makes you look like a dumb troll. Now, for all I know, you may not be a dumb troll, but some people are less willing to throw out first impressions than I am.
pinkfroggie06 Okay. Markpoa s a jerk. I am not done with alot of my stories. Ficwad formatted my stories like that. I am not boasting. MY keyboard is getting old. There is alot that you don't know. So deal.
pinkfroggie06 P.S. I can take critism as long as it's constructive. But if it's not and is just lat out mean. I will be pissed.

Rous Let me tell you what I do. When I get a response from either stories or forum postings that do not make sense, I go read some of the posters things, just to see if they know what they are talking about. So, I did so for your postings. While I have not really read much of MarkPoa's things, he does not strike me as inarticulate. So, calling him a jerk is uncalled for.

Formatting: you only get that crappy formatting when you neglect to format it correctly on your word processor. I am sure if you are unable to do this, someone will help you, if you ask nicely. Blaming formatting problems on an old keyboard is stupid. Computers are simple machines: garbage in, garbage out. As for things we do not know, readers are not interested in why you cannot write; they are only interested in reading. If you want them to read, then cater to them. Readers are not here to cater to you.


"A great love story about the attrction between a poor guy and rich girl." You should check the spelling in your summary.
"Very Good! Please Review!"
"Very Graphic." Not graphic enough as there is no meat to this story.
"!!!!!GREAT STORY, PLEASE REVIEW!!!!!" This is fanfic, not original. You need to repost it correctly. And, it is unreadable.
"READ!!!! GREAT STORIES!!!!"

Who told you these were great? If someone actually said so, then you may have reason to either believe them or wonder at their intelligence. If no one told you this, then you are boasting. However, trying to read the stories quickly puts the reader in the mind that you have no idea what you are talking about. You should let the reviews tell the next reader how good it is. Again, I am wondering how old you are. You are treating this whole thing like a child would.

As for getting POed, well that is your choice. I would think you would wonder why so many think the way they do about your writing. Remember, this is an adult site; compose yourself as such.

I can confirm by glancing your stories page, those summaries alone could make me scare away from them, let alone the ratings (varying from Trainwreck to anything else bad thats available).

Ok, enough (unargumented) ranting. You need to get awake. You are NOT a great writer, you have SO much to learn, you need a Beta Reader, you need more description, better format and original plots, greater vocabulary to use synonyms (reading 'X said' three phrases in a row is not beneficial to my and everybodies joy, if there is any, in your story. I d love to give some CC to you if you really need it. Don't start making topics about badly wrote stories while you dont know how to qualify your own.
