Default Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

at people who care about star ratings.

Just a random question, what do people think of people who wait for their threads to have a specific number of posts before posting their show. I don't mean "Oh, I don't want to double post, so I'll wait for one or two reviews/feedback/predictions until I'll post my show." I mean, "Oh, I'm one more post until I get to the next page of my thread. Let me ask someone to make a quick post with predictions (which, btw, in no way shape or form help the booker in any way to improve) so I can post my show which'll have it be the first post on the thread."

Not mentioning who may have said it, just something that really annoyed me. I feel people are too concerned about having their BTB be THE BTB of the section. Wolf Beast and Legend are going strong, but are the credible bookers, and bookers who have established themselves and are respected by most of the section, go around to look at the new threads and try to give specific feedback to help newer bookers become really good and eventually become established, which doesn't happen over night? People say that you shouldn't book for others, but the one thing most people want is other people's opinions on their work. If you work hard on something and dedicate time to write something, wouldn't you want to hear people say if it's good or bad and why?

While people do want their BTB to be "the" btb of the section, why can't they just focus on their work instead of having people comment on it and having a lot of posts and thread views? A lot of the latest BTB's are terrible and are likely to not last, because it's evident who puts a lot of their time and effort into their BTB/Shows and who doesn't.

I don't know, I've been in and out of the section, never had the motivation to write a BTB because my poor attitude is "I'll work really fucking hard on 3/4 shows, then try to write a good pay per view, and because I'm only getting reviews/feedback from n00bs and then getting feedback from bookers I respect like Mevlis and RatedRKO31 (I'm just naming two because I don't remember who usually reads/feedbacks my shows) and that's it." I'm not full of myself nor do I think I deserve more attention than I get when I used to book because it takes time and I'm not patient which is my own problem.

I don't know what my point is in this post, but hopefully it'll spark some sort of discussion.

But yeah, rating threads one star is just stupid. Doesn't look good at all.

Seeing as the Summer time is just around the corner and that is usually the boom period for the section, where dozens of new members sign up and start threads and only maybe one becomes something worth while and continues after the Summer and occasionally some big names in the BTB section return and the casuals post some pretty big PPV's and have time to right.

What sort of stuff you are you guys looking forward to in this Summer? Any PPV"s that are only a month or so away that you can't wait for? A return that you are hoping for? or something else.

If Wolfy miraculously turns on the jets and is able to churn out a SummerSlam, that'd be swell. Or if iMac gets to his Wrestlemania, that'd be seven kinds of awesome as well.

...and that totally rhymed.

And to answer your question, Leeroy, I kinda got lost in the ramble of most of it, but what I can say is I somewhat share the sentiment of the vicious circle of working your ass off. Personally, it does irk me if I pump out something I put a great bit of effort/time/etc. into just to get little, if any, response, although any response is great. It does get rather tedious when much of the feedback for your own work is from yourself. Though I think my problem might be my stuff is a tad hard to get into (that or I just suck), but that's neither here nor there.

As for shooting for the whole 'being THE BTB' thing, I don't see much wrong with aiming for something, although I'm in agreeance that that really isn't the right thing to be aiming for. And being in the position I am in the section and not really being the best writer, I don't really think it's my place to say "ZOMG they need to aim for this". I can only speak for me, and William aims for getting better with every show...even if I'm the only one who reads it

Wow...I kinda rambled there myself. It's 4 in the morning. Idk what I'm saying.

I'm actually anticipating stoj's Vengeance, some great storylines going over on his Raw. Don't have time to review it often but I do keep up to date.

I still think the attitude of wanting/needing feedback is something that to many people have. With my thread, which I've kind of managed to keep afloat for a change, I'm probably getting one persons thoughts, maybe two per show. Not a lot by any means, but with the section as it is at the moment, that's about all you're going to get.

Even so, I work hard and write BTB because I enjoy it. I'm enthusiastic to see just how I can develop my characters and what not. Feedback is not that big of an issue, maybe it's just me, but I get satisfaction just in writing the shows, because it's a fun hobby.

I do agree that you should write because you enjoy it and not because you want to be accepted by the section and such BUT I have to say that I do understand some people's frustrations to continue, and posting shows after yourself repeatedly does get to you at some point.
