This will be my final contribution to the wiki.
You may have realized that I have not been very active on the site lately. There are a number of reasons for this, but the main reason would have to be the fact that the community has become unbearable lately.
I know there are some cool users out there trying their hardest to put in some good work. Unfortunately, alot of these stories are knocked back by what seem to be hypocritical and insanely high quality standards. For average writers, the struggle of creating a 'masterpiece' is just that - a struggle. Unfortunately there are only a few people active on the writers workshop, which means that those who want to improve are relying on the word of one user to improve. And the harsh comments that are left on these stories only push away eager writers, rather than embrace them.
And yes, I'm also going to complain about the admins. I know, it is a common thing that alot of people who can't handle authority complain about, and I'm about to do the exact same thing. The wiki is no longer a place that people can feel welcome. Stories are deleted daily, and there is no time given whatsoever to even allow the author to even recieve proper feedback. Really; the Your story is not up to the Quality Standards message is a lazy attempt at giving feedback. There should be better feedback given to these poor souls other than 'your story is not good enough'. To be honest, the harshness of this message is going to make the writers slink away in embarrasment rather than post their work to the writers workshop, or ask for further feedback.
Don't even get me started on the commenting sections of stories either. All I see is bullshit critiques that make no sense.
9/10 for an okay story. In what fucking world is 9/10 only OK?
2/10 because everything was great but it didn't scare me. Look out we have a badss over here.
The original jeff was much better. I load my shotgun to these comments.
Anyway, that's me signing off for good. I'm disappointed in the wiki and what it has become.
P.S. Nah just kidding. I love you all. I've been a bit busy lately with holidays and just haven't got a chance to be online, but now I'm back. You might not have even noticed I was missing, but I just wanted to know how everyone and everything is. What new stories are out, who are the new members, who has left (I actually had a good laugh at one blog post when I got on today and it inspired me to write this), what's the status of the collab? Just any information you can give me. I've missed out on a fair bit. So just disregard everything else. It was only a joke... just like this wiki. ;)
