That's a lie! You lowered one of my chapters because of content. *pouts* That and you never did read my last update.... :(

I only lowered it ONCE... never moved the dang thing again. Yes I know I haven't read your chapter still.... too tired after work and weekends there is so much to get done around the house.

Roflmao!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, I may daydream 24/7 - but even I slip back into reality every so often - lol.

And it sucks when they misunderstand & lower it - I mean, if you're too confused, DON'T read it & DON'T rate it!

That's what happened to me, *sigh* I didn't think it was that hard to understand, it's literally the equivalent of a quarter page.

People think it would be fun to be a bird because you could fly. But they forget the negative side, which is the preening.

^ That I can justify.  If you're consistently getting less than 5 stars (not just a couple of people who lower it), maybe it's time to look at things like that.  Are you spellchecking your work?  Are you sticking to one tense?  Do you start a new paragraph every time the speaker changes?  Do you use proper punctuation?  Cause not doing those things makes a story really hard to read, for me anyway.  And those are all things that, if you were educated in an English-speaking country and actually paid attention to your English classes, you should know how to do.

I know for me it's always the same person and she never gives anyone a perfect ten. She always gives an 8. lol it's annoying.

Oye vey.


And I don't read what I don't understand. I stopped reading fics I knew I'd lower the stars on, because I know what it feels lik to have 'em lowered - though, if I ever do lower stars, I state why - usually the grammar or whatever or something like that.

question, how do you know who lowers your star count? lol

Cause I always HATE it when that happens and sometimes would love to know who did it.

Yes I can see lol but even before I could it's easy to tell if you have 5 and then right after someone gives you a review it jumps down to less than that. Although there are people who don't revew and just do the stars.
