Elizabeth Emerald: Congratulations to Dolly's Poems for her upgrade to #1 reviewer. Upon her achieving such lofty status, the Grim Reaper icon was bequeathed her. I propose that this fearsome figure--who wields a scythe suitable for star-smashing--be swapped out for a friendly one. Perhaps a fairy princess who sprinkles magic stardust with a cheerful smile--apropos of Dolly, who always strews such wonderful words of encouragement along with a generous distribution of sparklers.
May 14, 2020 at 3:21AM
    Dolly'sPoems: Thank you Elizabeth for your sweet words here, I hope to continue to sprinkle my magical fairy dust, love Dolly x
    May 14, 2020 at 3:36AM
    OliveO: What a joy for my very first submission to be reviewed by Dolly's Poems. Liz, I actually entered the contest which was about to expire today...for one of my life memoirs...thanks to your kind referral to this amazing site. Since my hubby's nickname is Popeye, thus I am OliveO on this site. (in case you don't get my actual name--JD's sister)

Elizabeth Emerald: Given that reviewer nominations generally vanish down the rabbit hole, I wish to commend Sarkems for an astute critique. There was a logical flaw in my story, which I'd been hesitant to post because something had seemed "off," yet I couldn't pin it down. SARKEMS did. I amended the piece forthwith.
April 27, 2020 at 11:37PM
    Sarkems: Aww thank you, that's very sweet

Elizabeth Emerald: I wish to publicly laud Dina Bruun for a six-star review. Meaning six-stars to her for her four-stars to me. Dina wrote a painstaking critique of my script; she warmly expressed the many things she liked, and made several detailed suggestions for improvement. Her advice was spot on; I wasted no time implementing her apt recommendations, being eager to offer my best to the rest. As regards her extensive effort in my behalf Dina went above and beyond; as regards her giving a balanced review Dina did exactly as we are supposed to do. Kudos to her. As Freudians (probably don't really) say--sometimes a cigar is just a cigar; I say--sometimes "good" means good.

...On the flip side...sometimes "good" means: THIS SUCKS! I recently got a four-star review for a parody piece that taken on face value was not worthy of even a one. The reader gave up in disgust three lines into my monstrosity in which (per the footnote) I spew utter nonsense in a jumble of atrocious grammar and usage.
April 22, 2020 at 12:25PM
    rama devi: Thanks for highlighting a great review with your gratitude. So many people misinterpret constructive critique as being 'negative' (destructive). It's a wonderful gesture to spotlight Dina for her extensive constructive critique. I gave her a thumb too!
    April 22, 2020 at 4:45PM

Elizabeth Emerald: I am frustrated at being MUTEd after having given a three-star review, shortly after which I set out in search of other pieces by the author that would merit high-fives and found myself locked out. A shame, surely I would have found worthy works amidst her portfolio--she'd have more than made up her stars.
March 29, 2020 at 6:20PM
    Eve Lovell: Don't worry, it is very hard to do anything here. It is a friendly fiver club run by mostly old men and women who give endless fivers with flattery, you have no idea how many times I've been muted for a four, but I have a care factor of zero, we're here to be read, not to get ratings. Keep giving the three's and fours. I respect you for it. It is meant to be a writing site, but alas, it is really a friendly fiver club.
    March 29, 2020 at 7:31PM
    rama devi: Warm welcome to Fanstory. You'll find a full spectrum here. Some are here to share socially, while some are here to improve in the craft. As a recognized reviewer, I'm a veteran of being muted for offering in depth critique and honest ratings. But you'll find that many will be grateful for the substantive reviews and the muters are a minority. Please continue to review with such integrity and intelligence! :) I'm less active here than in previous years. We need a new recognized reviewer!
