Well, I think that if you review for people and ask for a review in return most people would review in return. For example, if you were to review my fic I would review yours in return, although a little tardy.

My fic Dust to Deceit is like that. I know I'm a good writer, or so my reviewers a year ago loved Dust to Deceit. Now it's back and nobody seems to read it.

Anyway! Maybe we shiould change the topic from 'I'm a fic reviewer' to something like 'Do you feel you don't get enough reviews?' Hmm? It doesn't risk being locked. Dust to Deceit's link is in my signature.

I know this is a lot to ask but, I would really appreciate it if people read and replied to my fic, Starbolts: New Beginnings. I don't really like asking for people to read and review it but I would like people to look at it and comment on it. I know it's a bit unusual to have a superhero fic on the board, and you guys might not know much about superheroes in general but any comment at all would be good.

My story has a lot of views and only one person (Dani) is making comments about it. I would like more people to read what I have so far and make comments. I'm up to chapter 7 in the thread. I'll post chapter 8 later and I'm now making chapter 13 and 14. There's a lot of story left and I would appreciate it if people reviewed it so far.

The link is in my signature. Please look at it. I hate having to ask but luckily this thread is here. I hope people like it and give it a shot. I know it's not a pokemon fic but at least give it a shot.

Oh boy, where do I begin. It's almost like my fics are invisible to people, yet I usually get nothing but good reviews.

Could you possibly both review my Zelda fics The Shattered Sword and A forgotten Legend: The Tears of Salvation? When I get one more review I am planning on posting the next chapters.

Also, in The Author's Café, I have a preview that never got a reply. It still needs a name, so I need help.

If you could find time to look at my work, I would gladly appreciate it.

Call me crazy, but if you have a fic that's going unnoticed, shouldn't you be posting in the 'Happy Fun Get The Word Out Thread'? That's the best way to get readers-that and post a 'commercial' in the 'Fanfiction Commercial Thread'.
This thread isn't offering advise or anything, and if you people want reviewers then go to the 'Fanfic Reviewers: Post Here' Sticky. PM a reviewer and they will give you a review if your fic is the kind they'd like. >.<


I would also quickly like to mention that Poster appears to be a suck-up and doesn't know that threads don't have 'leaders', never mind 'co-leaders'. o.O


Also, I'd advise asking your English teacher (or your dictionary if you talk to books a lot) when to use 'witch' and when to use 'which'. The use of proper grammar (and the space bar) are highly recomended.

Em, I've been advertising my story "Not So Sensational" for a week or two and nobody is replying. I know people are reading it but almost nobody is replying to it. A few people do reply and that keeps me going but I would like all of the "ghost" readers to tell me what they think once in a while.

I know the chapters are short and the description stinks but those are my weaknesses. Here's the link: http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=89540

No threads get closed if they have no ratings. Full stop. Read the rules.

Just to confirm Psychic's post, there are already THREE threads in order to get reviewers. If you want to review, ME, post it in your sig and you'll recieve PMs. Even better, post in the reviewers thread. Surely making a whole new thread which basically mimics the reviewers thread except its for the benifit of one person is against the rules?

Meh, just read Psychic's post. Pay attention to the things around you.

I've found that even doing that doesn't give you reviews. I've only had Dani aka Mondo look at Starbolts: New Beginnings and respond. I get a lot of views for the fic but no one reviews it other than her. So, what's up with that? People look at it, yes. But no one responds to it.

I posted the link in my sig, I've posted trailers, and I've even posted in the "fic intro" thread. So, what else does a guy have to do to get reviews? I don't mean to be pissy but come on..People have done all that and more and still have yet to get reviews off of people reading the stuff.

Psychic has a point, Tale but even that doesn't matter in the long run. And you're right, threads with no ratings don't get closed. Mine doesn't have a rating in the title but in it, I dd put a PG-13. I do want reviews. The link is in my sig. I don't think this thread is against the rules. If it were, Sandra and Dragonfree would have closed it by now.

PM users in the review thread ;/ but if that hasn't worked then, well, theres not much you can do to be honest.
But my point is, all ME has to do is put in his sig that he's open for reviewing. There no need for a whole new thread.

Again, theres not much you can do if you've tried everything. Its like if you publish a book, you cant exactly do much if no one wants to read it. And anyways, unless you're really seeking to improve, the fact that people are reading it should comfort you enough, and you should be grateful for those who do review.

Hope you get more successful though!

Yeah, I got ya. And I am grateful. I have been thinking of getting it published. There's a lot of money in publishing your own comic. If only I had an artist.

Why not PM each other and not disturb others nby posting? I am open to reviews, but contact me through PM. I only request that I be given time. Reviews will still be of quality, though. One-shots are even better, and I will do those almost immediately.

I wish more would review PMC.... and, seeing as I'm focusing towards doujinshi, I'd really like to hear some opinions on where the storyline's going, depth, characterization, etc., quite a bit of which I'm having some troubles with (especially characterization). Hearing praise about my scripting at first was good, but now it's getting old, and I can hardly give a s*** about my diction in descriptions, you know, treating it less for its storyline and more for that crap that wouldn't matter once I start working on a doujinshi.

this is hilarious.

"I don't have any reviews!"

heh...

I've got news for you. I have at LEAST 100 pages worth MS word that haven't gotten a SINGLE review. that's the later chapters of HHNF: Legacy, and Operation: Celebi.

but do I come around and whine about it?

nah, I just keep writing. do you know why? because I like writing for writing's SAKE!

sure, I LOVE reviews, but...if I don't get any, I'm still fine.

if I cared about reviews, I would have quit writing a LONG time ago. I REALLY don't see what the big deal about not getting reviews is.

I don't want to sound like I'm whining - which I probably am - but yes, my fic really lacks reviews. I had a burst of one-time reviews, and after that, only one person subscribed to my fic, and even he/she hasn't shown any signs yet (although I'm pretty sure that's because there is nothing new currently to talk on). So, yeah.

The link is in my sig, by the way.

My Pokemon fanfic is Original Trainer, which probably puts people off reading it. The people who have read it say it's quite good, though. There are 17 chapters and a prologue at the moment. I would greatly appreciate anyone who wants to read and review it.

Well, when all is said and done, maybe a topic for people to just whine about their fan fiction is not that uncalled for. It might even be sort of therapeutic, provided it doesn't annoy or disturb other writers. We all need time to rant sometimes more so on the Internet than in real life.


As it is I haven't gotten any reviews for some years now, that is , I don't count sprite comics is true fan fiction in my eyes. But hopefully I can make a bit of a comeback sooner or later :-)

As someone who not only takes review requests very readily, but sends them out like there won't be a tomorrow and has a party any time someone new posts on the 'Reviewers Post Here' thread, I don't think whining does anyone too much good, nor do I think it's the best way to do things. IMO, it's a little lazy.

I, for one, enjoyed Act's review and I can attest to her readiness to review, seeing as she's reviewed a few of my fics.

There are tons of other fic reviewers too, so don't whine about not getting reviews.
