PostSubject: Constructive criticism accepted, huh...?   Wed Aug 05, 2009 6:52 am

So, Nina had a rant about rude/completely pointless reviewers, but how can we forget those authors who "accept constructive criticism" and then whine at you when you do? There's just one author in particular who got to me a couple of days ago. I really liked the story and everything, but they made the common mistake that I see everywhere - they misspelled Odaiba. I think they spelled it like "Obadiah" or something crazy like that. So I politely tell them how to spell it (because you know and I know that seeing Odaiba misspelled is irritating), and this is what I get in the review reply:

Quote :
I know about Obadia...

but for some reason... my Microsoft word thinks that "Obadia" is not a correct word.

I wanted to rip my throat out and scream "THAT'S BECAUSE IT'S NOT A CORRECT WORD!!" I even checked the review I posted to make sure I didn't spell it wrong. So I messaged him again, and got my head ripped off for "being a flamer". And lo and behold, in the next chapter, it's spelled "Obadia".

I give up.

I know, it's such a silly thing to get worked up over but it's one of my pet peeves... D:

Odaiba's a pretty easy word to spell, considering how many times it's been mentioned in the series.

People are ****tards!

The Odaiba thing bugs me too!


If I wasn't semi-nice, I would totally put this one author on blast for her lack of review acceptance! I try to take into account that she's probably twelve but she was really REALLY annoying.

*sigh* and we must put up with them... why? I mean, what happened to all of the really good quality fics on ff.net? Did they just... disappear? I mean, with the exception of the occasional fic, they're all pretty much the same thing anymore... it's really sad.

I sometimes write Naruto fic. Spellcheck wants me to write "Narrator."
Do I write stories with this "Narrator" as a character? NO.

Out of curiousity was he writing with the original names? Because if he were, and accepted the spellcheck suggestions, that could be hilarious!

Hmm, looks like we might have to do something about that Smile

Are you suggesting we go on a writing spree?

A writing spree sounds like a good idea. If we have enough people and enough brain juice, maybe we can inspire some quality stuff.

...or something.

That is exactly what I'm suggesting. Considering that was the entire point of this forum in the first place...

I'm cool. I just have no ideas. Once I have an idea, I'll be fine. I've been toying with doing a fic inspired by a Death Cab for Cutie song... But I don't know how to start it.

I fully intend to indulge is this writing spree... Once I'm done with my exams >.<

My summer belongs to you, my peeps. (And Physics, and Maths, and Biology, but, yeah, I'll make time Smile)

Brain juice is looking pretty good, for the time being. Hopefully it doesn't fail during the summer, because like Nina said, my summer is dedicated to you guys XD
