[like = poem?

You can't use the same like twice.

[like = poem; why = good rhythm and overall good structure]

That is a possibility, although like you said, it is iffy.

Still not legit though.

Ack, sorry, one more question about examination.

I just noticed that none of Duckie's RM tags mention the link. It really seems a shame that all 22 of her reviews shouldn't count for that, so maybe just give her a point reduction?

-OT-

Oh crap, I completely forgot about the link tag, sorry I'm causing all this fuss! Also, just to clarify - so the tag needs to go on the last review given, not the last chapter, right? Just so I don't make the same mistake next time :)

I accept any point reductions or disqualifications without complaint - I screwed up this time around xD

I think maybe we should go back to the half a point?

-Excuse me for interrupting! The reviews are showing up, so we don't have to copy/paste our reviews into the posts now, right? I just put a link to the review page, in case. (Poems EF)-

Review Games Query

Does reviewing Prose count in the same category as reviewing poetry, or would it go under Stories? Or not included at all? Especially if the prose is quite short - more like a descriptive paragraph.

This is the Link to the piece in question.

If the author labels the prose as fiction, the author plays under Stories, if the author labels it as poetry, they play Poems.

@peaches

Hurray, it works again :D

Should I delete Limes posts?

I think we need to put this answer somewhere since I believe this is the third time in about a month this question has been asked...

It is put where the author categorizes it. If someone writes a short prose piece and calls it a poem then they play in poems. If they call it fiction it goes in stories. That said, if they call it fiction, but they're reall concerned about the poeticness of it, they can play in poems. BUT they cannot switch back and forth. If you start playing with it as a poem it has to stay that way.

You could delete the posts then, sure.

MC Depth

Searon/Sabotuer made an off-topic post in MC Depth when it should have been posted in P/Q. (SeasideDreams already told him/her to bring up anything that has to do with the reviews here, in P/Q - link.) I don't feel those posts (mine included) should be in the thread as I feel those posts are clogging up the thread. Should I delete or leave them be?

EDIT: link

I would definitely say delete their first OT, but yours is proof that we've told them where to go with problems, etc. so I'm not sure about that or their last post...

Stories Depth LoveisCruel's review of Searon

Wonderful, wonderful story. This is truly the best literature I have ever read. Even better than three-fourths of the books I've read. (Enjoyment-3 sentences) The details and similes, metaphors, and every little tiny description is complete and creates a full picture in your head. I see no flaws in this, only amazing detail and many forms of creative writing better than I've ever seen in my life. (Technique-2 sentences) Perfection on the names and magic and everything I read. (Other(naming)-1 sentence) I can tell this is going to be, or already is, a perfect story and one of the best on FictionPress. (General comments)

Needs one more sentence on naming and 2 sentences on on more category?

Ah, hrm...well, with something that happened in stories depth.

I asked for a review on the 3rd chapter of Tsukihana, and got one on the 1st chapter, by dreamer999. Then she PM'd me and said she didn't realize I'd asked for the 3rd chapter, and that she would review the third as well. However, she didn't post after me IN Stories Depth...and I'd prefer this not turn into a Rule 10 situation here.

@Stories Depth

Hrm. I don't see how Damsel (dreamer999) expects to get a review from the game if she reviews but doesn't post. Regardless, if she doesn't make a post, I can't do anything for her and that means you are still next to be reviewed, Otaku.

I'll send her a PM about this though.

Ah. Okay then. Thankies. :)

EDIT: Oh...hehe, yeah her email doesn't accept ones from FF and FP...

RM Glitch

Should I add something to the hoarding rule about if there is a glitch, hoarding is allowed, just post them up 20 at a time?

Also, can we leave anon reviews with our pennames as who it's from if it's just login that's disabled or do we have to wait to give the review until you can do it signed?

Reggy Awards

Frac, were you going to assign the topics or did you want me to pick the ones I wanted?

No, first Lime was supposed to pick the polls of her category she awnted to "host", since she hasn't made enough topics yet to be able to host all of them in a formerly locked OT. Then you and I share the scraps. :p

I'd call Technique "Writing", otherwise I agree. It is lacking.

If it's a newbie then they can PM the remaining (which is like, one more sentence for Other and one more category)

Yeah I think that'd be useful. FP is full of glitches lately.

Sure, why not.

@Reggy Awards

Sorry! Y'all were waiting for me to pick 3 categories (since I made 3 OTs) for polls since August 4th! D: I pick "Best Quote", "Best Virgin Rape" and "Best Marriage Post".

That leaves "Most likely to become a real writer" and "Best RGFF" from Part II for y'all to grab. S'ok?

Question.

In the games, if you request for say, chapter 6 of 'blah-blah' to be reviewed and the next person instead reviews chapter 7, does their review count?

Yup.

The only thing mandatory to follow is what story/poem to review. If someone tells you to review "X", you cant go and review "A" just because you didn't wanna review X.

Chapters are not mandatory. They are just a preference from the author.

Is good.

Mini, unless you have a preference, I made a sort of heads or tails, except with my lipstick, although I won't go into details of how that lame-crap actually works because in hindsight it doesn't make much sense, but anyways. My lipstick told me I get RGFF an you get Most Likely. Cool? Not cool?

Question: should the poll results be hidden or not while voting?

Review problems.

bloodredros3 owed me a review three days ago because they didnt give me a proper review. (Poems easy fix)

Also, Tewr gave me a review in poems easy fix that I dont think works

'Very nice. C: It easily made me laugh. "I fear outside. The birds. My new blouse." Short and funny. You know, I always think about this happening to me whenever I see a bird. This poem easily articulates that. Great job.'

There are no whys. So, if I am right, can a mod make a post? Thanks.

@Tewr's Review -

I see it as Like: the piece (very nice), why: it made him/her laugh. Like: the quote, why: short and funny. It's the bare minimum, but I would say it counts.
