Look around the board. Go on. Take as long as you need. Look into all the topics, look across the pages on this board, look at the site as a whole if you want.

What do you see?

**** ALL IS WHAT YOU SEE.

And why has this unfortunate plague beset this site? A distinct lack of our esteemed Tau Worlock is one cause, but the MAIN cause is that we aren't helping each other. We put our stuff up and just....EXPECT other people to look at it and review it.

Such is not the case, it seems. It so often just becmomes a strain to read somebody's work, especially when there is nothing particularly wrong with the piece so you have nothing to comment on...even though you know something is off.

So what we're going to do is this, we're going to sign a pact. A review for a review. This pact is thus:

If you take the time to review a piece of MY work, I will come to one of your pieces and review your work, no matter how long or good it is. I will put the same amount of effort into your review as you have put into mine.

So I, Seer Fox, agree to do this, for every and anyone who cares to come across and review my work.


If you too wish to agree to this pact, or take it up in the name of being awesome, copy said pact, change your name and reply to this here post. It's optional, and, as much as we'd like it to be, it isn't binding in anyway...other than to your word and your pride. I trust you value these things.

Okay then. Sooo I'm looking forward to seeing you!

Ciat,
Seer Fox

a fair point (though should it really be here?) for my part, and in my defence i am not a story writer, and find it hard to review what i don't understand, i would, and do, reply to any poetry that comes onto this board but there is just so little of it, and most of it's my own.

however i will give your little pact a shot

Dream, there is alot to be said for dreams, even if theres is no chance it will come true. There is comfort in the knowledge you can still dream of it. Nothing great was acomplished without detailed planning, no plan was ever drawn up without a dream of an acomplishment. They did not build the apollo rockets until after man dreamed of reaching out and touching the stars. How? How is irrelevant, as long as there is a why, and the why can be simply "I want to!", the how will be worked out later.

While I am severely short on time currently, I agree to the pact as well.  I will do my best to review as in depth as I can, in hopes of receiving the same treatment whenever I find the time to write something.  Smiley

Ah, you see this has one flaw.... Everyone says they will review someone's work if they get a review first. So.... who writes the first review?

I'm sure Tau will continue to be a resource, as always.  And I do try to review when I have enough time to read something as thorough as I should to properly review.

Hopefully, those that have decided to go with this policy will be proactive...that way, we get a good network of reviews going.  Smiley

Any reviews from anyone are good enough; even if these will only be select groups of people marking each others work instead of the whole site.

Seems like a good idea, yeah.

Definetely something to be doing.
