Many people have had there time to shine in ttg. Most recent, we could say, is [redacted]. But judging from Demetrius's comments, while he may shine, he does not wish to draw undue attention to himself.
I'm just saying that while people may have their moments, they may not want to be praised like some sort of /fic/ god. Unless someone appears to revel in the praise, or gives their okay, I would suggest refraining from shining and putting up any given reviewer on a pedestal.
Well that is an entertaining thought, the thought that Daffodil has multiple personalities and completely ignored one for nearly an entire thread, it is not true.
And a special thanks to Daffodil for putting up with my bullcrap. I see these derails I cause and sometimes I try to let it die down. Other times, I try to ask a legit question to rerail the thread. As you can see, that worked stupendously.
The more people that discover any particular branch of any given fandom, the more likely there is to be drama/derails/etc...
I personally think that coming when called just added to the fire, but if you think you did anything useful, good on you. I wish you luck with your project to help the productivity of this particular branch of the fandom.
No, reviewing is exactly the same. It's the authors who are changing. As this fandom rushes towards an inevitable demise, whether it be two months from now or three years from now, people are most likely trying to get in their two cents worth of fiction before something drastic happens. Something like the next EoP or FoE story that steals the limelight for an entire year while it runs its course. The simplest thing is to pound out story after story until they get praise on one of them. Until they get a single review and get it up on EqD or the feature box. Then they might focus on that story because they're receiving praise for it.
Reviewing will always be the same. Open doc, read story, highlight sections, comment on sections, leave tips in whatever thread you're using, leave your overall impression, let the author sort it out.
Or if you're lucky, you'll get that one author that does want to see one story succeed and they'll work with you.
Don't ever undercredit yourself. You may feel unproductive, but like I said earlier, everyone has their moments.
Look, I know you hate me, and I'm not to keen on you either, but I do hate anyone saying that they've been "unproductive", whether in sarcasm, jest, or otherwise.
