Because sometimes we get all excited of that little "Review Alert" only to find the actual review to be disapointing. =(

I know, it can sound like a spoilt rotten kid complaing about how they can't have what they want, but come on! We all need a little rant every now and then!

Some of us are also "lucky" enough to recieve reviews that make us go "WTF?" or laugh, this is a place to share!

Me and Xiexie are ALWAYS complaining about this!! lmfao.

It's not so much the, "This was awesome! UPDATE!" reviews that bug me. It's the people who ALERT and NEVER review! It's like what the hell? You have the time to read and deem it alertable and sometimes even favorite but do they care to explain why they did that!? I guess it's understandable if they alert on the first chapter, or before the story has really got off the ground, but a little encouragement is nice!

Oh and when you get PM's from random people asking you to update your stories! I'm like... "and you are?"

The reviews that TELL me what to do tick me off as well. HA! I have a prime example.

The Feud has Yolei and Kari are competing for Ken's effection and for recognition. So I get this review:

Quote :
Great chapter. Also here is an idea for the next chapter:Ken is at the water dock and Kari is with him. Kari is wearing all blue. Ken and Kari are talking and Yolie shows up and when she sees Kari she gets mad.Also Yolie pushes Kari in the water and when she and Ken sees her in the water Yolie laughs and Ken pulls Kari out of the water but Kari falls back in the water. What do you think of that idea? Tell me what you think. Also here is a list of Kari's blue clothes:
1.A blue shirt.
2.A light blue shorts.
3.Blue socks.
4.A light blue shoes.
5.A blue denim jacket.
What do you think of that? Also when Kari is walking Yolie tackles Kari in the back with her blue denim jacket on. Tell me what you think.

I felt like saying, "Did I ask for your opinion?!" Instead I said, "Thank you for the review and that much blue would be overkill."

Then I got this:
Quote :
Hay I know I already reviewed this chapter. I read your review and your rightall blue is a bit over kill. Just have her wear a blue denim jacket which Karigets pushed in the water by Yolie. Also here is a new list of clothes but theblue denim jacket stays o.
Here is a new list of clothes for Kari:
1.A red shirt.
2.Yellow shorts.
3.Blue shoes.
4.Blue denim jacket.
5 White socks.
What do you think?

And because that was left via anon review and the GUY (oh yes, ladies and gents, this was from a dude!) disabled PM'ing, I didn't respond. So I got ANOTHER review.

Quote :
Hay it is me again and sorry for geting my author name worng. I just want to know what you think of the review number 2 I sent you about Kari's new clothes. Also can you in every chapter tell us readers what clothes they are wearing and please have Kari get pushed in the water with her blue denim jacket on and have Yolie dump a bucket of water on her with her blue denim jacket on and have another girl that does not like Kari help dump a huge bucket of water on Kari. Also here is a new story with Kari and Yolie it is called Water War. What do you think of that idea?

At this point, because this was all in the span of one hour, I felt like disabling anon reviews! And it doesn't stop there, there were TWO more afterwards! I guess he was waiting for a response that I couldn't give. It was just annoying. I wanted to just go off on him and tell him to write a damn story himself. Or at least to tell him the fic isn't about what they're wearing!!!

In the end, when I can anyways, I just delete the stupid ones! Sad Sucks that the signed ones can't be deleted as well.

Another anti-review qualm I have is when you get a review from a twelve-year-old and they tell you that your story lacks complication! And you blink because you're wondering what the hell they read, you could have sworn the story was one giant complication after another.

And EXPECTATIONS!!!:

Quote :
well you know i admire u as my favorite author & had expectation from u to write someing more exciting & happy ...read more & update soon

I guess I should REALLY add, "Don't expect ANYTHING from me!" in my Disclaimers. Sad

Okay, I think I'll stop. Can you tell I've been waiting for the day when I could bitch about this? Neutral

Ooh, that sounds rough, like those readers have entitlement issues or something :/

My mind is still boggling over the "Kari's outfit" guy. There isn't enough WTF?-power to cover it, for serious.

Thank you! I hate that too.

But if there is one thing that really ticks me off is when a reviewer flames your story and then acts like he/she is just giving you constructive critisim. Constructive critisim is helpful; it's advice that will help to make your story and writing skills better. Flames on the other hand are just hateful attacks on your story; I don't see how tearing my self-esteem and pride in my story to shreds is helping me.

And then it gets me more ticked off if the bashers are registered authors on the site and have never posted a story themselves!

That just makes me think that these hateful idiots can dish out but can't take it.

Yeah, those alert-without-reviews annoy me the most! It's like a few hours after I update, I get lotsa emails so I'll be thinking they're reviews... then it turns out they're practically all alerts. :/ It's irritating!

*raises hand*

Totally in agreement there. That's just plain bizarre, to tell someone how the people in their story should dress...

I think Matt needs to review The Feud with the suggestion that Kari and Miyako start wearing trench coats.

Ah, but what colour would the trenchcoats be? XD

I got a review a while ago that simply consisted of *yawn*

I found it both rude and pointless Neutral

Time for a little logic:

The number of reviews and the number of hits a story recieves are inportional to each other.

The more hits a story has the less people review. And vice versa.

I have no idea if anything I just said makes sense. I'm so tired right now..

Sleep

Feel free to rip my only half-awake theory to shreds.

No, Caitlin, I get what you're saying. They never add up. But I guess you really can't complain when you have loyal readers who will deal with anything your brilliant, or in my case absurd, mind comes up with. Wink

I am really freaking annoyed right now.

I wrote a Harry Potter one-shot that has over 500 hits and is on 5 favorites lists...

And it has 1 review.

Only 1 person reviewed the story.

I don't mean to sound like an ungrateful bitch, because I'm glad someone reviewed, but still considering that in over 500 hits at least one other person could have reviewed.

Sorry if I sound bitchy.

I know how you feel, Caitlin. It sucks when people fav without reviewing. I mean, I'm glad that people like it enough to fave it, but I would really like to see what they have to say about the story!

But I guess you gotta admit that Harry Potter is a humongous fandom - so many stories are uploaded there every single day - heck, hour - so getting five favs and one review is pretty good actually. Very Happy
