Re: WWF 1997: The Two Eras

Before this thread goes any further you should learn how to spell Sycho Sid not shycho and Shawn Michaels not micheals

Re: WWF 1997: The Two Eras

Unlike others, I'll actually try and leave some sort of construct feedback for you here. Any sort of retro thread immediately gains my attention, so I came in here hoping for something entertaining. I won't be to harsh because this is your first thread, but at the moment, everything about this thread leaves a lot to be desired.

The best advice I can give you would be to read as many of the other threads in the section as possible. Especially around this time, you're lucky enough to have began booking, when nearly all the best bookers are active in the section. Firstly, just in regards to presentation, it would be good for you to get a feel of some formats that are maybe a little easier on the eye for the reader.

Not only that, but reading other people's threads will teach you how to book. That, along with some trial and error is the way EVERYBODY learns. Even though you've only just started the show, you clearly need to add a little bit more detail to your shows. I'm not saying write 30 page shows like some do, but some more detail would do no harm. Also, when you watch a wrestling show, it's not just match after match, with the odd promo to open the show. Add some more segments with interactions between your wrestlers, as well as backstage interviews. This will all help you develop feuds, and help with character development.

The only interesting moment in the thread so far was probably the HBK/Bret Hart promo, because you touched on their history. Yet even that left a lot to be desired. Read as many threads as you can, that's how you'll learn to execute things better.

Another thing to touch on would be spelling mistakes and grammar. Fix up all your mistakes, especially misspelling wrestler's names, as that's just a cardinal sin. Mistakes like that make me, as a reader, just want to read something else, that's preferably written correctly.

I hope you take this all as constructive, because I really am just trying to help. That's all it is. I would love to see a thread from this time period to succeed, so hopefully you can stick with this, and improve as you go. If you need a hand with anything, shoot me a pm, and I'll be happy to lend you some advice. Until then, good luck.
