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.
He might be talking about EWB, in which case the quality is definitely lower here. There are some good ones here, but most of the new ones lately are opportunistic, booked on the fly after a "major" event happened like CM Punk's promo or Jericho returning and quite frankly they don't even deserve feedback. Matches of 4 sentences, short promos, all in one color etc. BTB's also tend to lack a bit of creativity here; most is based on WWE from 2005 'till now, or new federations with sometimes unrealistic rosters.

Yeah I'm not on about the quality in general, I'm on about the quality of the BTBs that actually get more praise ala Wolf Beast's, Legend's, iMac's, 619's, Melvis' etc etc. What I'm saying is that the reason people put four lines for their matches, don't thoroughly plan etc. is because on other forums they can do that and still get praise because the standard and expectations may be lower. As a result, that certain booker may come here, try the same schtick with the four lines/lack of detail/lack of planning, notice they aren't getting feedback and leave and I suggested that as maybe one of the reasons this place is "barren" like somebody ignorantly said in the first place.

I could be talking out of my ass and making this bullshit up, but it seems reasonable.

True that, true that. I think this forum might attract a lot of "new" wrestling fans as well who fantasy book in their minds and just make a thread with little content thinking it'll do and we'll praise their awesome booking.

i've been off and on BTBs for years years and years. booms come and go...Lots of guys wanting to immediate splash on product. With me I want to produce something different and try something new. I got a few guys reading my stuff and I return by checking out theres. I try to read and check out the stuff I enjoy on here (Catching up on Wolf Beasts WWE thread and others). I don't expect a lot of reviews myself until I prove i'm sticking around.

That being said, I've always felt its more about the product than if you get reviews. If you can produce something worth reading and the presintation is good then others will catch on.

Nail, head, boom!

If only everyone saw it like that. That's exactly what it's all about. If you're going to give up if you don't get any comments, then you're not going to go very far.

Last year I asked what people's booking resolutions and what they were looking forward to the most were, but seeing as the former question yielded just about my answer each time, give more feedback and write more shows, I'll just stick with the latter this time around. With that said; what are you guys looking forward to most in 2012? It can be another booker's PPV or an angle concluding, or something you're excited about/hoping to get to in your own thread.

Personally, I'm looking forward to the masses of good PPVs from several people; for instance, iMac's Mania, Wolfy and Legend's Summerslam, 619's World Ablaze (even if Samoa Joe's not on the card yet he is on the poster ) and I don't know, I'm hoping to post Over The Limit before the year is done. Two PPVs, that seems like an achievable target. I'd also like to see new threads from a couple of people (this includes Shock not dropping his new one, ya jobber) - Emperor and TKOW come to mind, say. Oh, and I see Stoj is back, so best of luck to him too.

Oh, and Leeroy, if you're reading this, I'm fairly sure you owe me a coloured usertitle.

Okay, I'm done. Go.
I'm coming to this a bit late, but I thought I'd let you all know what I think anyway because my opinion is so bloody important.

Obviously anything that Wolfy writes is at the top of my interest pile, so his SummerSlam is the first thing on my radar. I still browse other threads from time to time, but I'm very particular in my tastes, so it's hard to please. That's a negative on my part btw.

I've given up on any other bookers I used to like returning, so I just hope some new ones emerge to replace them for my own selfish reading pleasure

I'll be the straw that stirs the drink. Which SummerSlam will be better, Legend's or Wolfy's?
