Well I was just chewing this up, it's really interesting, but I had to review now. I agree with the vast majority of your points, they'll all excellently put, and saw many things that you warned me about when you were reviewing my story (ellipses, double punct., and so on). So that was kinda neat. :)
Hmm, what else can I say? Very thorough guide. I especially liked your attitude towards including encouragement with the CC, and how flames don't have a place on FP. Some of your tips on writing a good story got me to thinking too. Some of my characters may need a look (their flaws don't come in too much).
Great work. :)

hey! This was very helpful, indeed. I have bad grammar myself, and already knew some of the points described on how to fix that, (get someone else to or reread till your satisfied) but i still miss some things int he end. i'll be sure to read more carefully this time.
I also realise how important reviews are, i always tried to give some sort of comment on the works, but now im hoping to be more helpful to the writer when i review, thanks for that _.
you two are very lucky, its hard to work as a team sometimes but you two seem to be able to create wonderful works when combining your talents of writing and...grammar editing lol.
thanks for the help on common grammar mistakes, ill have to add this to my fav reads, so i can come back and see what i might have missed in my own stories.
thanks for taking the time to help writers like me _

I appreciate how nicely this was written...you got your point across without ever making the reader feel deficiant or embaressed. Thank you. I especially like your review chapter...I try to follow that guide myself. I'm not sure I'm square on you with bio's but otherwise I agree with you.
Well, you said I could ask, so...if you are interested in my short stories (notice: NOT my poems) please hop on over! I would savor your critique. _ And thanks!

Hey, this was quite a very informative artice. I feel my brain cells supercharging already! Though I want to ask if it is ethical to re-post your story again and again, if for some reason you can't get any reviews on it. and when you do (pardon me hypocrisy), it usually sucks. Well, that's all I can say about it. i'm gonn add this information to my favorites for a reminder._

Hello! Remember me, your loyal reader from Passion in the Depths? I'll have to admit, I am not the best writer in the world, in fact, I only write because I tend to get bored, and reading this made me think. Maybe if I actually tried on my stories, they'd be better and get more reviews! So, this is a big compliment. You can go to sleep tonight, knowing that you've helped me, along with others, with this little story/essasy/or whatever it is. Ta ta for now!

_ This really helped me out a bit and gave me some great writing tips. Actually you guys have done a lot to help me out with my stories so Thanks a lot! Lol, most people brush me off saying: "Fifteen year olds don't write decent stories." But I'll quit rambling. I hope to hear from you soon!

"Now, there is a difference between a “flame” and “harsh criticism.” Allow me to explain:..." wow that's really weird.. I put the same difference thing in my pro a while ago.. lol. But anyway- This is very helpful. Not just to get reviews, but in a sense of of improving in all aspects, from your own writting to 'your reader here reviewing another person and actually helping them'. I know that I'm not very helpful when I review, but I'll try... I'm I doing any better? lol. This was a great idea, since you both are so talented in writting, and don't deny! Give yourself some credit cuz you guys rock ;o)

Seriously, I love you.
Anyway, enough with random praising. I found a reason why old users of this site should read this as well. I just found something that I could improve as well! _ Well, I know there's more than just that, as well, but something really stuck out for me this time.
| whyette chapter 3 . 8/11/2005
You are a wonderful, wonderful person. Seriously, I get so sick of: "I Loved it! -_" I'm glad they enjoyed my story, but I would like to know what they didn't like more than what they did...
Thank you again for writing this!
| whyette chapter 2 . 8/11/2005
Very interesting... I'm glad someone actually put something like this up. I would petition for the new users to have to read this or something... that would be wonderful!
This is really cool! You cover a lot of the stuff that not everyone knows about, but is a good review, even if they do know it.
| TigHan chapter 3 . 8/11/2005
I've only read up to chapter two, but I so far like what I see. It's also an interesting idea to post something like this, kudos to you for coming up with the idea... keeping in mind I've only read up to chapter 2, I think a lot of what you've included is just basic common sense and grammar rules so it hasn't helped me much so far, but I'm still going to read the rest of the guide. Hey, at least you're helping others out there. I know we all have problems with grammar at times. Thanks for the guide.

Hey Mack, good stuff on this essay.
I've read through all the cc you gave me and it's helped so far. Truthfully I hardly edit at all, using this site as more a writing exercise more than anything else (that and i'm lazy).
I've always been concerned if i'm catching the reader's attention, but it's hard because of the lack of reviews.
Honestly I disagree with your flaming point somewhat, at least that way you get to see where someone didn't like the way you approached a certain aspect of your story. Thanks again!

Mack,I am very glad that you spent time and posted this guide. It will be able to help out many starting and experienced writers here on fiction press. I am going to try in some of your tips and hopefully it will help make my first story a lot better. Anyways, thank you so much for posting this!

The whole controversy aspect plays a major role as well. Write something about homosexuals and you're bound to get review from those against and for it. If it were all about reviews Fictionpress would be like the media, filled with sex and such. But most people get satisfaction from just expressing themselves.
