Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I highly doubt I ever get back to BTB. I've just been frequenting this place a little more than I have in awhile lately to see if I can respark my writing passion. It's been months since I've been able to sit down and write, and I figured immersing myself back into the world where I spent two good years would help.

Quite a bit has changed, but quite a bit has stayed the same.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

true, the little things always change but there will always be things that will stick around.

I guess popping in here is a good start to try and rekindle your flare for writing.

Designated-reviewer system. Book it, mods.

It's only a thought and I'm sure I'll get ridiculed for it but it's clear as day that something needs to change in the BTB section, and maybe having some sort of system where everyone that is a member of the BTB section is designated to review someone else each week or three weeks so that everyone gets regular feedback on their shows. I have a feeling that someone else (a newbie probably) suggested something similar and got shot down unsurprisingly. There would have to be some sort of ranking so that Wolf Beast isn't selected to review some iliterate jobber obviously, but it would definitely encourage more activity I bet.

Reviews = motivation and I have no shame in saying that.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

A ranking system would suck. Guys that are "known" in the BTB section should be reviewing noobies so they get better obviously. You'll always have internet friends reviewing each other, so I doubt a system will change that. Cutting those several Word pages of feedback some people leave behind for one show could probably be 3 good feedback posts on 3 different diaries. The feedback that some people leave behind is a bit over the top, overanalyzing every word and segment, basically just doing a full-on recap.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I agree that something should be done and I like the idea just on the other hand you can't really force someone to review and take the time to read something they don't enjoy and would be a tiring chore for them to do so.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I'm not going to review something that does not interest me.

Sorry and all that, but it's life, and this is only BTB.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I'll review something if it's well written, original and interesting. As most of this section isn't, then I'm afraid I can't help

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

In an ideal world, everyone would get feedback for every show they do. Not an ideal world.

I, myself, have no intention of reviewing anyone's show just because I've been ordered or obliged to. If people want feedback so badly, they need to consistently produce good enough shows that they merit attention, or they should throw out some feedback themselves; at least some of that should get returned, meaning 1) they get feedback, 2) feedback is alive and well in the section. Quality breeds feedback. Feedback breeds feedback. Obligation would breed feedback, yeah, but it would kill any element of fun or free choice in the section, tbh.
