Not to be rude, but I find it just a little bit petty that people are getting offended by your reviews, and I fail to see how anything you've said can at all be interpreted as "bullying." I think these people need to look a little deeper into the world of critique and analysis, maybe browse sputnik music and rotten tomatoes, before they say anything else. Compared to most reviewers on those sites (some of which are paid for their reviews), your reviews are very tame and fair.
Indeed, whenever people get reviewed and there is something wrong they can’t stand it for some reason, reviewers just seek improvement where it is possible…
There was one moment in where my reviewer hat blew off, it was in the Cteno review in where I flipped out when I realized half posts were gone.
That’s been the only bit if I recall.
Your reviews come off as a bit rude at times, you should work on that if you want people to take you and your opinions more seriously, or if you want to avoid all the negative comments you seem to be getting. I'm sure there are people out there who think your blogs aren't anything special, but you put a lot of time and effort into them, so how would you feel if someone pointed out all the flaws they saw in something you've created then posted it as a "review"?
But I do give positive insight in every review I have done.
The negative comments don’t bother me at all.
To be fair, while *I* don't think you're being douchey or passive-aggressive, I can see why some of your reviews would come off that way. Taking your Discord Whooves review as just as an example, comments like "WELL NO SHIT you’ve been banging and being banged by ponies for around 21 pages already," while probably intended by you to just add some humour to your reviews, (which I appreciate), may come off as insulting to others. Maybe the anon just expected more formality from you as a reviewer?
the funny part is that me and jitterbug are friends.
Maybe they did want formality, but there is one mistake I did in the review that I already acknoledged.
The real reason wy I’m getting these messages is because of a confession on Tumblr as well.
Hey, I have a suggestion. Instead of spending time picking apart the work of others in a douchey and passive aggressive way, then disguising it as "reviews", why not focus your time and effort on producing original content for your own blog. If you did that you wouldn't have to bitch about other blogs like discorderlyconduct being more popular than yours.
Been busy doing 2 other blogs and giving presents to my friends.
Now that I made that clear, were did this even come from? I never said in this blog that I disliked the blog at all. And if you are reading my mdo blog, I said I disliked EQD, not the mod of the blog or the blog itself.
edit(second mod): who is being passive aggresive here? the guy that hasn’t said anything about discorderlyconduct in months and not only that but also stated that he didn’t hate the blog, or you, an anon that suddenly appears suggesting that the guy hasn’t done anything in these months just because you haven’t heard of him(which is untrue BTW)? get your facts straight before you try to insult someone because the only thing you’ve done is insult someone that hasn’t done anything to you.
When you first started this blog, did you guys get a lot of people breathing fire at you for just suggesting the idea of reviewing other people's works? Cause I'm getting a lot of that and I have yet to actually even... evaluate anything.
yeah, a lot of people can be like that when you start a blog like this too… my advice is to just remain honest with the reviews.
Next review shall be unfoortunately next week, I need to take a week off since I just started getting assmbled here at my home and I have projects I wanna accomplish as well…
I had moving day so I couldn’t write a review since it was for the whole day and the next one to order everything…
Hopefully I can write the next review.
I'm 90% positive the first set of question marks in your reviews stands for "interactivity."
Congratulations, that is correct!!!
LETS PLAY DOUBLE JEOPARDAY!
A few words and clarifications
I think I should say right now that I wrote something very wrong in the review I had done… Its mostly on the “porn sells” thing… Basically since it something you should never put up on a review as it sounds very bad. I have no excuse for that. What I did mean in the whole phrase though was that it was a benefit because porn is a very wide internet interest… I should have worded it this way.
As a side note. I would like to thabj jitterbug for his calm and elaborated response.
Please remember that my reviews still stand as an opinion as Warden hadnsaid earlier.
I am rhinking of reviewing anither blog from jitz in the future as an addendum. I have been getting a couple of messages in my mod blog that I didnt do a good review because I had forggoten to say that he doesnt know how to write a good story.
You will be surprised to know that his next blog I intend to reviw has a very high chance of getting the first 8/7…
No question, just wanted to say that your review looks pretty fair! I hope to see more of this blog c:! Don't let the haters get to you :c, you're being objective.
There is one thing though… Maybe the negqtve blow I gave was a bit too much.. Shiuld of been 15%
