Akane, you're not really helping yourself if you're only going ot comment about that, and not continue the constructive side, or at least make a new topic of yourself. Must i repeat myself a 4th time since the main comment is in previous post?


i think most of you know how to improve too...I just don't see why you all trying to find an excuse NOT to improve.

It doesn't look good when one cant understand "adequacy" and "perfection". granted perfection isn't 100% possible, but it shouldn't stop any one to aim for perfection from what you do know. You know character development, proper pacing, and clear sentences is what helps make an adequate story.

The rest is making sure you convey your thoughts clearly.

Yeah, well, you see, errmm...I have the feeling I shouldn't add this but,

Akane, you're not really helping yourself if you're only going ot comment about that, and not continue the constructive side, or at least make a new topic of yourself.

When did I say I wanted to be on the constructive side? Even though I am and I can completely follow what you're and despise it when people want to make excuses for themselves, it doesn't neccessarily mean I have to say anything about it. Yes, this is a manga creation community and it was most likely made to do what you're doing, telling people the right thing (yeah, meaning I'm not really playing my role as a MangaRaider), but by the time someone says 'No' to your advice, you have to leave it at that. I kind of understand why you made a topic about wanting to leave this place, seeing as you're always giving advice and people don't want to accept it. In this case, turn your head, flare your nostrils and say 'You can drag the horse to the river, but you can't make it drink' or something along the lines of that. No offence, though, to the people with differen opinions. You aren't horses, you're humans

AND I AM BACK.

Now. Let's discuss my latest story. Link is in my signature. Let's try to help me improve.

I'd like a few questions answered from a beta-reader's perspective.

Did anything make you laugh? Did nothing make you laugh, did you find anything interesting, or awesome. Do you have anything to say about the realism of the whole thing... or the time frame it takes for things to happen? Is it too cliche to have action so suddenly, or does that make the chapter intersting? I just picked up the script style of writing... so try to be not too harsh.

its more that the forum has endorsed immaturity, and the mods just don't know what to do when someone is clearly trying to cause problem, rather than avoid it.

THe forum had stopped trying to move toward maturity. It allowing members to be abusive. Overall though, in the other forum (granted not 100% about manga), is alla bout improving, and doesn't have to blow up in immaturity. the person normally gets shunned.

I'm guessing we're all stuffed into that bus(es?) for the sake of inflating attendance... not implying I hate the beach or anything...  :sure:

Give this man a medal! I haven't laughed this much all day!  :D

I remember Crackhead Johny writing something along the lines of this style... imagine a duet with the both of you! It'd be a killer!  :biggrin:

I thought I made it clear last time. You 2 don't speak publicly, period. Doesn't matter the reason whatever unless it's a life and death situation. Even if it's life and death just call a mod. So there shouldn't be a next time since this is the second warning. Whoever speak first to other person directly or indirectly get a vacation. And other party Must report it rather than reply or both get a vacation.

Sorry guys but there's nothing else we can do about it. You 2 guys simply can't get along and I don't to have a next time. You both guys are contribute forum in your own unique way and it's really great but just stay completely out of each others way.

It will be really unfortunate if I have to hand over temp ban for either of you since you both are good regular members.  But THIS does not happen again I don't care whatever the reason. Just don't make me do it. There won't be warnings for next time. and That's from right now after my post.

Use PM system if anyone have a question or anything.

I'm heading to this check this beach topic ...

You guys need to talk to each other about writing, not your own stories here. I learn that mistake and now I have the strong feeling to talk to others about their writing and mines too. I want to get along with everyone here.
