Reviews For Anger, Frustration, and Complaining

The thing is that this site is going down the tubes. If you don't have your name made and people already know you are good, then yeah, your not going to get much feedback. I know I can't really talk, but it is true. I have to say that I don't even bother to look at the Most Recent page. If one of my favorite authors writes something new or updates, that's about all I read. I just can't look and sift through all the noob stories. It is a bit depressing, really. Maybe I'm being cruel or mean, but if you guys want your stories read and reviewed. I would get another site. If you think your story deserves feedback, try it on another site, it just might be the next big thing. Don't stop writing just because you don't get anything on here. Oh yeah! And I can't believe you guys are still using this! I'm happy! Well...I guess it isn't a good thing that you guys have to complain about things...but you get what I mean. ^-^ With much love, A Vampires Butterfly ^.^

I didn't want to use myself as an example but if you check out my favorites you'll see all those neglected stories. They are really awesome. Naomi Uchiha is a perfect example. One of the best SasuOC stories I've ever read and it only has 4 reviews.

I'm glad I'm striking a chord with other people here. A round of thanks to you, Koyuki and BushtuckerPenguin. There still are examples of neglected stories I can mention- The Diary of Kiba and its sequel by TTM got off to a rough start on that one, and right now, it still isn't getting the attention it deserves on this site (the guy's got it posted elsewhere as well, and I don't know how well he's performing in terms of overall publicity- though it seems that he hasn't got too many fans).
OC's can be a real pain if the author isn't good at characterization. I'll check out Lost Soul if I have time. (If your taste is OC's, I recommend Runes to My Memory by Silent Witness. It's still in its early stages, but I can see great potential in it.)
I agree with quality over quantity, too... Personally, I try my best to provide top-notch product, and I believe many other authors on this site feel the same way as well.
Yeah... I completely agree on that one about yaoi and yuri. It's getting a little too cliche, and a lot of it is becoming plotless fluff and smut. There are some good yaoi and yuri writers, though- A Vampires Butterfly and ForyourLove, for example.
I'll check out Sweet and Petite if I get the time. It's getting rare to see challenge responses these days... Not one person has written a response to any of my challenges.

I completely agree with this post. The most I've seen mostly since the entire time I've been on this sight is that everyone pays attention to yaoi and yuri. If you write a story about that I bet you'd get more reviews for that than anything else you'd ever write. I want a little recognition also. I haven't been getting any reviews for my new story "Sweet and Petite". I told myself that after I complete those last three fics I'm quitting this site and moving to ff.net. I hope the people get the recognition they deserve. I feel like a n00b ever since I've wrote new stories.

Utterly agreed with. I'm hoping to encourage a quality over quantity view of reviews back to this community. There's an OC fic called the Lost Soul which I think may be the most perfect example of a working OC I've come across and its starving for the reviews it deserves. I'm reading it and composing a review as I go along but I definitely hope it gets the applause it deserves

Nah... I've been seeing these problems for some time now. I just didn't want to go into a rant for the sake of my mental health, which is already deteriorated enough as it is. But some things have to be said.
As for being a n00b or not, I believe a lot of it is based on writing skills.
I believe I will be posting on other sites, but not soon... I want to finish Air Mail to Neji before I do that.
Anyways, thanks for hearing this out.

Lol....yeah thats the problem this site has always had and you're just now getting it *can't help but laugh*
Its the main thing that makes so many people leave and stop writing...so don't just post on this site...post on many different sites so you can get more feedback...tonfa is like the worst place to post if you want smart people to read and review XD or to get any reviews at all.
This is so great :D The fact that you posted something like this makes you unn00b...you are coming out of n00bness and becoming for lack of a better word bitter :D I'm so happy right now.

I'll be more than glad to help you, if it's within my capacity at the moment. Just ask. I'll try my best to help you out.
Half an omelet for your birthday, eh? *totally confused* Anyways, a late happy birthday to you.

I wish I could give advice but being a noob myself I can't.

Don't worry about it. We have really tried to be nicer to n00bs. I have given advice to several new peoples this week and very glad I did. I'm happy to say they have all listened to me and their fics are turning out to be a lot better. You aren't a n00b. I swear you aren't. With much love, A Vampires Butterfly ^.^

You people must have really, umm, battled it out out there. I wasn't here the night this happened so I don't really know what happened, but it sounds bad.
Name: kyuubixshukaku (Signed) · Date: 02/05/07 - 06:44 pm · For: Violet Here
Well,I don't want an apology,and I don't want people to feel sorry for me.But,I do care about my mistakes,sometimes because...well, it dosen't matter. I'm not writing stories anymore, just reading and reviewing really. I knew before I was told I coulden't type,so you don't have to ignore my stories as I don't have any. Anyway, thanks for responding.

*shuffles feet* Okay umm lets just forget last night. Things will move on and it will just go back to the way things were. I'm sorry KxS, I guess. I'm not a real forgiving person, so I am still a bit pissed and don't expect a full out apology for telling you the truth and what I think about you because you won't get one. Yes, I know you don't expect one and well you just sound to me like someone who wants people to feel bad for you and I'm sorry once again but I won't. I don't regret saying those things and I think you deserve them. I accept your apology, but even so, as I said I do not forgive easily. I will go back to ignoring me and please the next time a experienced author takes the time to tell you how to make your stories better, don't go saying you don't care about the mistakes and that they are flaming you. Just accept the advice and put it to good use. - A Vampires Butterfly

Eh,I know.I was an idiot.I don't see a reason for you to think I have to apologize t you though,because I was just being an idiot.....

It really takes guts to do what you just did kxs. I want to back up what Jess said. All of here started out with problems as well but we took the advice and tips from the seniors before us and imprived. When people are tellinging you soemthing should be changed or edited they are trying to help though some may go about it the wrong way.
As a community we have to stick together to help each other out. My outcome was a drastic measures solution but hopefully if not just you but the other junior writers in your position learn to accepet the advice geven to you, I think pease is in TONFA's future again.

You know what...A lot of things were said last night, I swear to you, mostly from me and such. Although next time you feel angry about something or the need to take your anger out on someone, try not having it happen while we as a group are coping with a great loss. The events from Last night were all uncalled for, by both parties, and I have to admit what you are doing is very big of you. I am aware that you are a fan of one of my stories, I here I really hope that I haven't lost a reader because what I said to you inparticular. What happened, it happened and hopefully we all can learn from it.

well...since jess is here, why not me? sorry to butt in folks, i also thought it was better for me not to get involved. Still, I had to say that it's very mature and sweet to apologize like Kyu just did. So, everyone, please peace out, forgive and forget. No flames, no bad language, no dramas. This kind of things hurt Tonfa's reputation.

Hn. For the past few weeks I've been telling everyone and pounding it into my head that I wasn't going to get involved. But... I feel that before anyone has a chance to say anything about your post, I have to say something...
It takes guts to admit that you're wrong and step up into the fact that you did something wrong. But, I don't think that will satisfy anyone here. Because the main thing that has been getting under everyone's skin is the way you snap at people for offering thier critisim on how to better yourself as a writer.
Now, if you would take those comments with a grain of salt and apply them to your work, I'm sure that you wouldn't have it so rough around here.
Now, I know for a fact that there is not one single perfect writer on TONFA. So everyone is going to make mistakes every once in a while, I admit that even the fics that I've written that I think are pretty good, have mistakes.
But the key to being a writer, good or bad, is to take other's comments, apply them to your work and better yourself. Everyone starts off as a newbie and it takes time, patience and understanding to move forward from that.
Look, I honestly don't want anyone on this site to be ignored because it's a shitty feeling to have. So... I guess what I'm trying to say with my babble is that... You just need to think and apply other's comments instead of getting completely defensive and biting them back, when they were just trying to help in the first place.
Yeah, I think that's all I have to say right now. Oh and I'm still not getting involved further into this than I already have.

As I said on MSN I love this idea and if this isn't possible, to the newbie TONFA -shot-
The only reason it might not work is coding...and ya >.> The Most Recent thing would probably be the most difficult

Come on, no one gets it?
fine a clue,: hymen,
some girls have to make the connection now. Well im a guy and i got it.
-8- My dearst, my sweet, I love you
Yet I reject these feelings for you
Forgive me my dear,
As I can be the one to confort you,
I shall replay those moments when I held you,
Alas, you shall toss those memories to the four winds
As you become the woman of another man
As you become another man's woman -8-

As I said I also have no idea if it is possible or not, and with TONFA's luck with coding there is a high chance it won't work and I realize that. But I am detirmined to find away we can all be at peace
