I don't know whether or not anyone has done anything like that besides for their backstories, but I am sure you'd have an audience for it, obviously shown by the already given support. I definitely wouldn't be interested in it for a few reasons. It would lack realism because I don't think McMahon would ever rehire Russo, and if he did he would be filtering a lot of his bad ideas. Another reason I personally wouldn't is due to the fact that I don't watch TNA anymore because of the nonsense going on there. Finally, I'd be satire, which is probably the reason you'd get most of your readers, but I don't like satire, haha. So like I said, it could definitely be done though I personally think you are appealing to niche audience, which is perfectly fine.

The promotion is a brand new promotion and has a few recognizable names but no-one exactly huge. Would show a bit a later at night, maybe about 10/10:30pm? It's not ultraviolent CZW and whatnot, but it isn't PG "lets suck up to the kids" either.

Thanks.
I'd only think local television stations would pick up something completely new unless there were some big names involved in which case you could probably get MTV, truTV, or G4. Of course you also have the option of weekly PPVs, iPPVs, or internet airings as well whether or not you have big names.

what happened to this site BTB section??? months ago, the other site's BTB section was near dead and here was all the action

today BTBs spring up here, and 99% dont go beyond 10 posts, what's up with that? seriously some lack of reviews and activity in this section, to be honest that other site is doing so well now, BTBs coming up are going on for longer just becoz the activity is there, and it does not look barren and dead like it does here

I'm not completely sure what other sites you're on about but here is my guess.

Compare this BTB section with a lot of other BTBs or "BOOK THIS" sections, the overall quality here is so much higher. People don't want to put as much effort in here, whether it be for reading/giving feedback or writing, and go somewhere else where they can half-ass it and still get praised and still be noticed as an amazing writer/booker, when compared to the top end bookers here, it's crap (in the nicest way possible). Like I said, I don't know what other forums you're on about but I've been a member of most of the big ones and I always found that to be the reason why.

I honestly think that one of the reasons why people are upset is because nobody gives reviews. I had a couple of projects up and I didn't even get a comment. It's discouraging.

I don't even know what 'other' site he's talking about. All I can think of is that if people want to come here, complain about this section and then praise the other, then why not fucking stay there instead of acting like a bitch here?! Just sayin'!

Then they're doing it for the wrong reasons. Working harder to improve is what should motivate someone to write. People complaining about not getting feedback and begging for it is pretty pathetic.

Mods run a tight ship around here. Nobody ever told me there was an alternative.

Persistence breeds feedback. Consistent shows of a somewhat-solid standard will attract attention; giving feedback to other people is also a good place to start because generally they'll return the favour. Sure, it's discouraging when you don't get help but there's children dying in Africa or something. If you enjoy it enough, find the motivation to keep going until people take an interest, tbh.

Also on the other topic, it sounds the other way around to me; as in, I thought the place was barren a couple of months ago, now it seems to be waking up. For example, we actually had a couple of pages of consistent discussion the other day - JACKPOT.

We've just come off the busiest period of the year for mankind. Of course things are going to be slow.

What about if that comment had been it sucked?

Imagine how discouraging that would have been?

Melvis is right, the section seems to have livened up a little over the past couple of weeks, and a couple of good new threads seem to be emerging (the 'It Begins' thread's first show was a good read), as well as the usual brilliance from Wolfy & the other big dogs around here; section been doing well. Was good to see that the Discussion page has been active this past few days.

Sorry its a bit late but Happy New Year to everyone also
