    1. Re: Personal take on forum behavior & problems with ratings

      By insincere, I meant "a 0.5-star rating because you disagree with something they said on the forums" or "a 0.5-star rating because it's got gay characters and you don't like homosexual content". Ratings (...)


    2. Re: Personal take on forum behavior & problems with ratings

      i think it is the same thing everywhere else. RR still fares better. Are there actually other sites that gave honest ratings? novelupdates come to mind. but those are not for amateur works but for translation. (...)


    3. Re: Boost your webnovel today with professional reading

      serious question There was a thread advertising paid reviews that the community... uh, didn't take too kindly to. I'm of the opinion that the joke has slightly run its course, that this is descending (...)


    4. Re: Personal take on forum behavior & problems with ratings

      Between anything less than 5-star reviews being seen as taboo and people's works receiving 0.5-star ratings purely out of spite, I'm very much of the opinion that the rating system here simply isn't that (...)


    5. Re: How come the author username doesn't appear under fiction titles?

      Everything on this site is by the same person. They're very good.


    6. Re: Using Chatbot to learn how to write fiction?

      is the equivalent of asking stable diffuse to get me some hands and feet. DeviantArt's going to have a real meltdown when they finally get those to generate properly. Then, we come for the furries. (...)

      Cute lil' walking fire hazard, you!


    8. Re: Boost Your Novel's Views with a Professional Review - 5k Views and Above!

      You can't give reviews stars. You give them a thumb up or thumb down. While I agree with your points, I never said anything about reviews: Someone's idea not being well received is not a cause to (...)


    9. Re: Boost Your Novel's Views with a Professional Review - 5k Views and Above!

      Really? Because I'd say that knowing someone was either payed for, or is using reviews for their commercial value, is a legit reason to downvote them. Someone's idea not being well received is not a (...)


    10. Re: Boost your webnovel today with professional reading

      I have read many books professionally, from Three Body Problem to A Song of Ice And Fire. Now that's impressive. You must be a professional reader if you've managed to transform an entire series into (...)


    11. Re: Boost your novel, without boosting it!

      Yes. Ah, The Elements of Style. Something everyone should read, but no one should religiously listen to—wait, or... uh, to which no one should religiously listen? I forget their opinion on that. (...)


    12. Re: Boost your novel, without boosting it!

      Also, I know this is satire—for MOROSE is a real boy, much like Pinocchio—but this your words will flow like a river, and your sentences will sing like a choir is making me violent.


    13. Re: Boost your novel, without boosting it!

      You will never be forced, due to your own limitations, to resort to the passive voice again. You will never be forced to resort to the passive voice again. You will never be forced to resort to the (...)


    14. Re: With good editing, you won't need to boost your novel unnaturally!

      Oh, wait—there's a website! It's not a (stretch) bot! There's an editing sample as well! For what it's worth, the edits made aren't poor per se (as I am obviously the ultimate authority on all things), (...)


    15. Re: With good editing, you won't need to boost your novel unnaturally!

      If this is a bot, there's something delicious about its name being it's a stretch. Shine on, you crazy diamond.


    16. Re: Capitalizing Various Names

      I passed the question to a friend of mine, who rather interestingly pointed out that the Joker switches between the two possibilities quite frequently in universe. Even on DC's official website, he's alternatingly (...)


    17. Re: Boost Your Novel's Views with a Professional Review - 5k Views and Above!

      See the thing is people do do this...for published books. Plenty of book reviewers on YouTube, for example. And even if they hate it, they typically say interesting enough things about the book that you (...)


    18. Re: Boost Your Novel's Views with a Professional Review - 5k Views and Above!

      Long story shorter: Review swaps are contentious enough around here. Paid reviews would be Hitler-adjacent. I can't see how people would consciously pay you for the possible opportunity to be left (...)


    19. Re: Boost Your Novel's Views with a Professional Review - 5k Views and Above!

      Actually, I think they might have something here. I want to start a reviewing service where my unfortunate prey willing clients pay me... say, £500 to edit their works as I do professionally, but with (...)


    20. Re: Capitalizing Various Names

      There's never really been any consensus on this, because we can't collectively seem to decide whether determiners form part of proper nouns or not. Is it The Beatles or the Beatles? Most would use the (...)
