Don't you just hate those who read your fanfics only to complain about them? (116)

if they haven't enjoyed your story, why review it and say how much they hate you?? doh!

67 Name: Rivala : 2009-12-22 07:49 ID:InaEzXo5

To Cat...

That's quite a funny story. Surely if the description says its a gay couple and you don't like that pairing, surely you'd just avoid it altogether...?

LOLs though, and you're right. Your story, your rules :D

What i hate most is when your new to writing fanfic or new to writing a fanfic for that anime, book or cartoon etc and then people who put comments that have no suggestions in them on how to improve the fanfic story. I wouldn't mind a review that tells me how to improve my stories but ones that just say "this story sucks" or something like that then i think 'you were once just starting out too' in my head.

69 Name: Loola : 2009-12-24 03:40 ID:l+wYFiq+

Personaly, i realy love constructive critisims (so long as it is valid). I don't however apreciate (and damn you i can't remembger your log in name!!) when someone starts picking and killing some quite irrelivent point in the plot!! In my fic I had the two main characters tickling one another in a market, and she (i presume it was a she seeing as I was writing slash but hey! male readers much welcome lol) started having a go about how you dont tickle people in markets because it can get you chucked out and because it distracts stall sellers so things can get nicked... WTF??? cuz yeah, that had EVERYTHING to do with vampires ??

>>70 Your reviewer pointed out quite a plot hole. She may not have done so politely, but it sounds as though she had a point. As an author, it is your duty to confront such plot holes head-on and eradicate them. If you do not relish the challenge, don't write. For fiction to entertain, the reader has to be willing to suspend disbelief, and this is impossible if the plot requires great leaps of faith to accept.

I haven't had a flame yet (so my ego is stretches arms this big) but I once read one that read: This story is so shit you should kill yourself

OMG anyone like WOAHHH!

73 Name: Elkkun : 2009-12-27 08:08 ID:841v5TCI

@73 please, I don't wanna go blind. Put your ego away or I'll find your stories and flame one for the hell of it. -giggle- naaah, I'm not a flamer.

wait...'this story is so shit you should kill yourself' O_o...if somebody said that to me, I might've responded.

'That review was so shit you should kill yourself. Have a nice afterlife ^^'

@72 yeah :P he should at least re-read it through before showing the class it.

74 Name: faery : 2009-12-27 12:44 ID:ov9mrZLV

to be honest most of the flames are just plane rude, i mean criticism - okay fair enough but a flame just hurts you emotionally sniffs in bckgrd lol

i don't get it

what i hate is when it's like there's someone out to get people constantly sending these negative reviews - what's the point?

75 Name: Elkkun : 2010-01-05 08:51 ID:841v5TCI

>>75 Faery (is that an American version of Fairy?), there was this one person on ff.net called 'Flame Rising' and as their name says they just flamed everyone for the hell of it. There were a few people who told me to ignore them and just carry on because they were being rude ect. Flames do hurt people and I think I read somewhere on ff.net that you can't 'flame' a story, I'm sure I read it or it had something along those lines.

76 Name: Lauraac2110 : 2010-01-11 10:24 ID:jqvCebS/

Flames... certainly a nightmare if you ever get them. I'm fortunate so far that I've managed to avoid being flamed in one way or another so I must be doing something right.

Recently, I've been getting a lot of decent constructive criticism and praise from my reviewers so I certainly must be doing something right for now. I've also encouraged a lot of people reading my novel to review regularly to help me improve even further. A few reviewers have signed up to be my informal betas as well because of the community that I'm beginning to build up around my novels.

I find that some writers leave themselves wide open for criticism when, for example, someone criticises their story with "this story sucks". If that ever happened to me, I'd be replying instantly and asking "why?" so that I can improve my novel. I wouldn't be evil in reply.

However, if I get regular complaints from the same people without justification, I often ask myself why are they even bothering to read any further? If you don't like a fanfic, you don't have to read all the way to the end.

Some people still don't realise that.

77 Name: Trapped in Reality : 2010-01-15 16:13 ID:YxWRzj9S

I love it when I get reviews like, "Bad, stupid story. Reading it was such a waste of time. Sorry, I didn't mean to offend, but I've flushed better things down my toilet." And the author hasn't written one story. It was a parody, meaning it wasn't meant to be taken seriously.

78 Name: Niori : 2010-01-15 18:08 ID:zEeOOMoT

My personal fav? When someone reads all the way into a story, THEN flames. If you don't like the story, why did you read 45 chapters in (personal experience)? Especially when it's the third story of the triology, and they commented on how much they hated the first two. I mean, really.

Oh, and when flamers go and say something like 'you should do the world a favor and take this down blah blah blah' speel (This one isn't personal, but I saw it in the reviews of a Danny Phantom I read). The irony in that? THe story had over 100 reviews, and that was the ONLY flame. So clearly, by attempting to speak on behalf of the world, they kind of look like idoits with an over inflated opinion of themselves.

79 Name: Taloolah P : 2010-01-20 04:40 ID:/3lsYF0m

I have only ever had two reviews that weren't positive so i count myself as lucky. The two 'bad' reviews I got were basically telling me that my stories were disgusting and too explicit fot M rating. The thing that really made me laugh was that one of the reviewers then added my story to her favourites!
I always review what i read and even if I don't like it I will find something positive to say about it as well as sometimes making suggestions for changes / improvements (usually grammar and punctuation based).

I wrote one fic and an anonymous reviewer who named himself 'Alex' read it and flamed, then 2 chaps later he reviewed again claiming to have read it again to see if I had taken in what he had said and he flamed me AGAIN! If he didn't like it the first time then why the hell did he keep reading!? Some people are so annoying, although he was my only flamer for the fic, I've only ever had a couple of flames for my stories so I consider myself quite lucky :D x x

83 Name: DuxAtrum : 2010-01-20 10:32 ID:uDTiE61H

Sometimes people flame multiple times because the people they flame just don't seem to get the point.

Now, am not—nor have I ever been—an advocate of flaming. There's much better ways to get a point across than insulting the writer personally.

BUT.

Some people—some people on this very thread—need to realize the difference between a 'bad' (or, as I would put it, critical) review, and a flame.

A critical review might tell you that your story needs work. It might say it wasn't particularly interesting. It might say even your story downright sucks. NONE of these is a flame (though the last might be pushing it, depending on the wording).

A flame is a personal insult to you, or your ancestry/progeny/whatever. A critical review attacks the story. A flame attacks the writer. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.

In my book, the only bad review is a review with no point. (As in, the ones that just say 'update' right after you've posted a new bleeding chapter, or ones that say your fic sucked and don't explain why.)

@ DuxAtrum - Well said. There's a lot of people who need to learn how to take criticism.

85 Name: inulover90 : 2010-01-31 19:54 ID:c55glwLu

>>75
because they need to make themselve feel better about their lives and what they do.... it seems that those who have lower self esteem tend to make fun of, or, for lack of a way to explain it, be really mean to others.

i just got a review from a TKD Master. they read all 9 chapter that i had posted at the time and reviewed... they really made me mad... i would post it but it's really long and i was talking about in another thread also, but they told me how my story should have been written and how i should make my characters act and look. i of course cannot just sit back and read it and let it go, soooo i wrote a nice note on my new chapter because i could not send TKD Master a note back.
i dont mind being told things i did wrong or things that people think would have worked better... i have had a few like that and i have worked on a few things and plan to have others in another story yet to be posted, but being called stupid, and an idiot and having things like this last review said to me really just..... piss's me off!

86 Name: Elkkun : 2010-02-02 14:32 ID:841v5TCI

>>79 oh another Danny Phantom fan...cool :) Don't see any of those around much heh...Seems to be forgotten, blown into the wind.

I was told that I couldn't write so -shrugs- I dunno whether that's a 'flame' or just a...'bad' review because it didn't attack me....Just...Made me puzzled -raises my eyebrow-

Cheers for the explanation though DuxAtrum (or post number 84 xD)

87 Name: ... : 2010-02-02 17:06 ID:p7x4WWO+

@Elkkun- I'd say that's on the borderline, or rather, not quite a flame, but very nearly. And I'll tell Dux you thanked him/her/it.

88 Name: hikarinimichitasora : 2010-02-03 04:54 ID:/SGjJVkf

There is a person who I don't understand who reads my fics.

She clearly doesn't like the pairing (Sephiroth/Cloud) and is a HUGE Zack fan. She also hates yaoi. She reads, I assume, because there's not much het for her to read and the secondary pairing in there is Zack/Aerith.

Now, I'm pretty sure that when a story is listed as a Sephiroth/Cloud fic, you'd understand that Sephiroth and CLoud owuld be the main characters. Not this girl. I've had more complaints about my handling of Zack and Aerith as characters than I have commentary on the actual story. This may be because I don't write them as OMG PERFECT GENKI LOL and instead show less pleasant personality traits but seriously...

There are warnings. I tell you the pairing. I gave out a massive list of warnings at the beginning of the fic. You ignored them. Seriously, don't go into a S/C fic and expect tons of Zack and Aerith!

Okay, I'm done.

89 Name: Anonymous : 2010-02-05 16:20 ID:uDTiE61H

stumbles in, bemused and half-asleep

Whuzzat? Oh, you're welcome, Elkkun. Always glad to be of service. doffs hat

And >>89—well, that's another matter entirely. If your fic actually DID make Zack and Aeris OOC, they'd have a legitimate right to complain regardless of what the main pairing was... but this strikes me more as a fanbrat being, well, a fanbrat.

It's interesting, though, your comment about 'less pleasant personality traits', because you could make a case that the original (i.e. FFVII) Zack Fair is not as pleasant and puppy-like as Crisis Core makes him out to be. I've seen it argued, at least, and rather convincingly. The man WAS a soldier in the Wutai war, after all. Likewise, Aeris is not a perfect saint. (Though I still hold that, of all the profoundly flawed members of AVALANCHE, she was by far the purest.) So if you guide yourself more by original canon, rather than the Compilation (which the younger fans and/or fanbrats seem to do)—then yeah, Zack would definitely have at least a little bit of a not-so-nice side.

whooshes off to educate the innocent sum moar

90 Name: Hikarinimichitasora : 2010-02-06 03:54 ID:aKHifgvc

>>90 I tend to portray Zack as an inherently selfish character. In ACC I felt this became highlighted even more. Aeris wants Cloud to forgive himself, but yet when fighting Sephiroth, Zack tells him to continue to live out his life for /Zack/. Also, I don't let Zack bounce around oblivious, or have him come up with stupid hare-brained schemes or play match-maker etc etc. A lot of fanbrats (particularly those who have only played CC) don't understand this.

91 Name: ... : 2010-02-06 05:39 ID:p7x4WWO+

'Rather convincingly', hmm? If that's a reference to my posts, Dux, thank you. If not, I'll sniffle.

I cba to text it all again, so here are the points condensed:

-Zack's a SOLDIER. He's been in a war. Wars are nothing like that THING that turned up in CC, whatever it was. He's a killer, and he'll have killed civilians, too. He isn't particularly bothered by killing; he suggests that he and Cloud become mercs. While I doubt that he'd murder a child or a young woman, he wouldn't mind killing a guard or a man he was ordered to kill, because he doesn't place the same value on all human lives. This contrasts directly with the puppy persona.

-He's a tough, cynical character who has his own code of honour. If you look at Cloud's behaviour while he is trying to imitate Zack, this is evident. He'll look out for those close to him, and he'll try and help others sometimes, but he'll always put his friends first.

-He's an ADULT MAN.

92 Name: Bola : 2010-02-13 09:27 ID:6mnQ6ufq

Yeah. I hate them as well. I had something like that on a YouTube video of mine, which I think is comparable. It simply said, "It's supposed to be Duquesne instead of DuCaine, you..." Sjee. If she had even looked at the thing, she would have realized I wasn't only talking about Calleigh, but her relationship with Horatio, which is being referred to as DuCaine.
In fact, I do hate simple reviews, like 'Gr8!' as well. I wonder if they even read the story or just wanted to give me a break. What's great? Everything??

93 Name: Elkkun : 2010-02-13 10:38 ID:z/edXzs8

You should put a little AN saying 'can you at least TRY and give me some concrit?' :3 maybe people'll try and do it then.

I like constructive critisism, I try to listen to it and all, I like recieving reviews they make me feel all warm and fuzzy.
That being said, I hate it when it's really abrupt, like:
'You need to run your story through a spellchecker, you have lots of typos'
Then I think, 'well, did you like the story? Was there an opinion in there?'
I hate it when reviews focus solely on grammar and spelling. Yes, they're incredibly important I completely agreed, but the reason I don't edit my work as thoroughly as I should is because I want people to tell me how to change the plot and what they think about it.

96 Name: moonphase : 2010-03-01 13:34 ID:Kd8RCuY5

DEATH NOTE SPOILERS
For a one shot I did my summary was:
"Slight AU: Misa Amanes thoughts ten years after Light becomes Kira. "
(For those unfamiliar with Death Note, Light is a villain (sort of) character who doesn't become 'Kira', hence why I mentioned it was slightly AU.)
Then I got a review saying:
"Ten years after Light dies? That can't be, as Misa commits suicide a little after Light is killed."
The person could not have even read my summary properly let alone the story as I quite clearly stated, it was an AU and in this version Light won. Annoying...

97 Name: Elkkun : 2010-03-02 04:49 ID:DEOMByoR

pfft, hopefully you said to them "Read the summary next time, then come back and review ¬_¬"

It kinda makes me laugh when people read stories from ages ago then tell you
"You can't write"

OH I DO WONDER WHY.

'...' I totally agree with what you said. I want to be able to improve my writing so when I get reviews like 'awsome chapter' and I know it's not good, I think it's pointless. I'd much rather to get a review saying 'pile of shit'.

It annoys me that a person would ask for reviews and want nice ones. I am often wanting to just review saying 'bloody fucking terrible' but don't want to upset them.

My first fanfiction was put on a community of the 'worst ever' or something. Sure, it would upset a lot of people, but I loved that twenty something people were pointing out all of the shitty stuff thats happened in my writing. I believe that it's improved my writing bucket loads, as my second fanfic is on something like 450 reviews, (without a single 'plain terrible' reviews.)

So to annyone who says people shouldn't complain about them, why don't you want to know? Don't you want to improve? If your getting bad reviews, you're blatently doing something wrong. Really, it's your fault you're getting the shitey reviews in the first place :)

102 Name: moonphase : 2010-03-03 12:04 ID:Kd8RCuY5

>>102 A lot of people here are not angry because someone criticised their work but either because they said something random, didn't read the story or summary properly before complaining or just said something asinine. Most people are happy to have con crit.Mine wasn't a shitty review exactly, it was someone criticising who hadn't read my summary. So it was a case of someone being so eager to critise, they criticised something that did not matter...just read my post at >>97 to understand...

103 Name: J : 2010-03-03 21:03 ID:SmVGKBoA

Forgive me if some of this has already been said, it’s nearly four am, I haven’t go time to read the whole thread.

Constructive criticism is perhaps the greatest and most important tool in any would-be writer’s arsenal, however needless criticism over petty plot disputes can be demoralising to an author.

That being said, I’m seeing some people who are complaining about people calling their writing out of character, that’s just a bad attitude to have. If you’re constantly under criticism over your characterisation (even poorly worded flames) then you might want to take a step back from the story and think about how those characters really would react. Even something as fundamental as your chosen pairing can be seen as out of character if done badly (for example Snape/Lupin, without sufficient explanation can seem absurd).

I personally have never had any reviews like that, however I have seen them for time to time on other people’s stories (in an amusingly ironic sort of way the reviews are usually poorly written). If you genuinely can’t see a reason for them, then they’re just flamers looking for an argument, who take pride in making other people feel small. Ignore them and/or delete them, they probably didn’t even read your story.

And as for those saying they don’t like people pointing out specific corrections (11 I think it was?): Sometime specific correction are good, if you only made one or two errors (and really, if you’re posting something for others to read, then you shouldn’t be making more than a few minor errors), then a reader pointing them out to you is best, as you don’t need to scour the whole thing with a eagle eye to find the mistakes. Writers have a tendency to miss their own mistakes as they read what they meant to write rather than what they actually did – hence the existence of proof readers.

I once misspelled ‘shirt’ in a rather, erm, amusing way (despite re-reading the story a half dozen times before posting it), I laughed when it was pointed out to me.

I must say , what I personally despise the most is people who say they can handle/would appreciate constructive criticism but as soon as they’re actually given any, they can’t take it and go off the wall about it. When someone goes to the effort of giving you constructive criticism, and tells you how you can improve something, then you can at least try to take it on board.

That was a little long-winded, sorry.

I have written today my most bitchy review ever, and I am waiting for a response!!

here is it:

>I hate it to be a B!tch BUT while reading this I wanted to punch my screen :@ such a beautiful story with such potentials being destroyed by mare details of DUB OOCness!! Why is so difficult to use USAGI and MAMORU when you used all the other names correctly, is beyond me! WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO WRITE FOR THE JAPANESE VERSION you need to use all JAPANESE names, and erase every stupid word the eng Dub came up with like "meatball head" or "scouts"[that you didn't included but it is stupid] ODANGO-ATAMA which is a nickname ONLY MAMORU, HARUKA & SEIYA used it doesn't mean meatball head. Odango is ball-shaped food that is sweet rise, NOT MEAT. Rei never used that nickname for USAGI. MAMORU [and not Darien or whatever] didn't broke Usagi's heart in canon, he was simply DEAD. Haruka doesn't hate him! if you meant Seiya, that's another story, People seem to forget that while Haruka was dying she asked her to protect Usagi!

I couldn't help it though and neither regretting writing that review, I was really pissed when i read that story!!!

105 Name: sharingansupergirl : 2010-03-19 09:59 ID:NQSyWL4b

:o Methinks SeraEris is passionate about a certain something! :)

All that over the wrong terms? Not that you don't have a point, because frankly you do, but it might have been worth saying why using the english dubs were mistaken, commenting on how it took the professionalism away from the story and confused other readers. I only suspect the writer may not take your review seriously (which they should) because you haven't reasoned your views.

I say that, and can sort of understand where they went wrong with the food, but they used all the other names except Usagi and Mamoru? Really now. >:(

106 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女ですか。 : 2010-03-19 11:13 ID:72zFuB2D

>>106 she replied me and told me that she will consider everything for her next story. I think I broke her a bit :s

but you know in Sailor Moon fandom they totally know why we are bitching about the names. there is a hate for the eng DUB, What I CAN'T take is the use of Dub OOCness, because we are talking about a whole different show :S

from the whole cast she used only Haruka, Michiru, Seiya, Rei, Usagi and Mamoru, and while she used all Japanese names for the first four she said Serena and Derian for the other two!!!

it is just that "If you don't know your fandom, DON'T WRITE ABOUT IT, choose something else. or just do a research.

110 Name: Sabulana : 2010-03-20 11:15 ID:oRiDAuJa

I've been getting strange reviews lately, for old stuff I wrote years ago. One the one hand, I'm glad my fics are still being read but on the other, I'm not exactly happy I'm not getting any kind of concrit. I'm also wondering why they would bother reviewing only to point out that I'm 'twisted' or that such-and-such characters aren't gay. I know canonically that said characters are straight but I wanted to write it so I did. I admit, my writing back then was... not the best but even so, I don't think it is absolutely terrible either.

...Actually, I might go back and see if I can't improve all those old stories. See if I can get anymore reviews like that. XD It just makes me laugh to know people read my stories despite hating them. Life is too short to read stories you don't like.

111 Name: Elkkun : 2010-03-20 12:15 ID:z/edXzs8

>>111 what kind of stuff do you write for? :3 If there's anything there what I like I'll probably read it (unless it's a shoujo ai or yuri o-o...) and CC X3.

112 Name: sharingansupergirl : 2010-03-20 12:24 ID:ynneOZ4i

@107, I agree and can understand what you mean. At least she took your advise anyway.

@111, I guess, but then I've never reviewed a story I haven't read the whole way through. Why would I construct on something if I haven't already checked it has been done? Though why anyone would call you twisted for something that wasn't canon is a little pathetic.

I wrote a poem and posted it on fanfiction.net and the only reply I got was...

BOLLOCKS.

Bollocks? BOLLOCKS!? What kind of review is Bollocks? I mean, seriously, they could have at least tried!

I can understand that my poem was a failure, but couldn't they have at least tried to write a proper review?
I'm still rather annoyed by it.
I decided to do the mature thing and reply to them saying something on the lines of 'sorry you didn't like it. My actual stories are a whole lot better, trust me!' or something. I can't really remember...

114 Name: Sabulana : 2010-03-21 02:25 ID:oRiDAuJa

>>112 Most of my stuff is Jak and Daxter. I've been out of that fandom for years though. It's mostly shounen ai/slash/yaoi/whatever you wanna call it but there are a couple shoujo ai/yuri fics, I think. Or just the one. All my stuff has the proper warnings anyway so it should be easy enough to avoid if it's not the kind of thing you like.

>>113 I think the 'twisted' part for was for a fic that involved a nightmare about rape. Yeah, it is probably one of the worst fics I've got up there but still... It's not a topic I write about much - I don't usually write things that make me uncomfortable but I like to push my boundaries now and again.

115 Name: sharingansupergirl : 2010-03-21 05:16 ID:qrlmjfEs

@114, I might've asked them to keep their 'BOLLOCKS' off my review page, unless they've got some proper advise.

@115, Clearly the reviewer wasn't mature enough to handle it. I see you're uncomfortable about it, but keep pushing those boundries, you'll only get better. :)

Yeah, they sent me a reply saying they'll check my other stories out, but they haven't reviewed them...
If they give me a review with a very inappropriate word, I'll probably just tell them to get lost, or something similar.
Have any of you realised that the ones giving those 'bollocks' reviews are not actually that serious about fan-fiction? I'd like to point out that reviews are there for the writers to improve, not feel bad about what they have written and the reviews also help them improve on their writing abilities. Such as Sabulana, experimenting with topics she is uncomfortable to write about and getting reviews to see if she actually did a good job. I have seen a lot of Yaoi and Yuris that are really well done, despite the fact that the real characters are straight (That doesn't mean I am a Yaoi/Yuri person. I prefer stories where the characters are straight, but that's no reason to criticise someone's work).
