You do know that Critics United cannot delete stories right? The most they can do is report. Why are you blaming Critics United when the authors themselves decide to remove their stories because it violated guidelines? If it's admin deletion - well, they've been warned and chose not to listen.

And you can continue to say how stupid I am, and how much entertainment you get from me, when the fact of the matter is you will NEVER be rid me. Edit this if it makes you feel better, to me it shows your insecurities.

No, what we will do is leave you messages up StachkeKing so everyone can see what a messed up person you really are. I mean, this level of assault is bordering on mental illness. You really should consider seeking out professional help.

Hi! First of all, I fully support this forum. People should follow the rules. And I am aware that I am breaking the rules, and I am in the process of remedying that. However, one of your reviewers is insulting the stories they review. And I don't thank that's okay. They said my story "likely won't be worth reading." I'm not going to name names here, but if you truly believe this is a problem, please PM me.

Technically, finn, Venom is not a member, but rather a like-minded ally. And sorry, but even if it wasn't phrased very sweetly, which he doesn't have to, (no reviewer does; being blunt about the work is not the same as flaming you as a writer) experience tells me that he is correct on that front. If you don't show the imagination to either come up with your own OCs or adapt canon characters from either the Warriors 'verse or another fandom to the roles you need, then I as a reader don't trust you to show the imagination to come up with much of a plot, either, and you don't exactly have any actual stories on your profile to build that trust. It's not that you can't get better - gods know my first fic was a massive Mary Sue and wasn't worth reading, either - but you've already got the Erins giving you characters. Are there none of them that you can use or tweak? Nothing from Richard Adams or Gabriel King or Tad Williams or Rita Mae Brown or Lauren Faust that could inspire you? Good luck.

I'm not a member, but what Warg said. More specifically, this isn't a game. By posting publicly, you've become a published writer, but your work is out there for people to read and react to. The writer can't except special treatment, but if they're not ready for the blunt reviews that come with being a published writer, they need to honestly hold off posting stories online.

I find this group amusing. Also if my stories and or profile for whatever reason are deleted I honestly pity my readers. Too much effort to change anything and I value my video games more than anything, writing is an after thought and a hobby which someone encouraged me to write for them on this site (I usually just read and review). But thank you for reviewing my story and sorry I will not be changing anything.

Like everything, the choice is all on you. You chose to write at someone else's encouragement. You chose to post on a site, like every singe site on the internet nowadays, that has TOS you have to agree to. You agreed to the writing guidelines when you posted. And you're making a choice not to follow the rules you agreed to.

You've made several choices of your own free will. We're just going to make one and report your story for any violations it contains. After that it's the site admins choice to do something about it or not.

Not sure why you're including your profile and all your stories as we only report one story per author at a time. No wonder you find us amusing, you didn't bother doing any research like you clearly didn't bother reading the TOS & guidelines you agreed to. Honestly, did you think they wouldn't be enforced by the site admins sooner or later whether we report the story or not?

Don't bother answering because it's clear you don't care and are just making sure we know how much you don't care. Nice waste of effort. We're still reporting. We're not sorry and thank you.

I was sincere. But please by all means 'The Whine'. I did apologize did I not? I am okay with being reported seeing as there are plenty of stories here with explicit content....(Insert Thinking emoji)

This group is a voluntary stacking of individuals who think they control the site by regulating what people publish? We are all fully aware of what the TOS state. We are also fully aware of the many stories that have been on this site for YEARS, that have not been removed. Again, that is why this group amuses me. But alas I did apologize for lack of effort on my part to comply to your wishes 'Oh Great Ones'.

Happy reporting and Oh & Guys. I'm on ***. My user name '***'. Feel free to message and have a party chat. I'm always up for a debate.

And Yes the attention is very nice.

And Yes This really works.

Why do you even care about some random people think over the internet?

You are never going to see them and are going to forget them in a day.

I'm pretty sure it's been said many times that other people breaking the rules aren't a reason to break the rules as well.

If you don't care about your stories getting removed, than care so little that you can't even bother to spend your time replying to the reviews, or even to responses.

If you do care, then change the stories.

You found this group amusing, yet you cared enough to say that you don't care. You even said that you played a lot of video games and writing was something you didn't care about. If you had to respond to this forum in defense, it meant you cared - doesn't matter how much, but you did. You took the effort to mention it took too much effort to change anything. Why not just ignore CU and just keep posting if you didn't care? What's the point of even thanking them for the review and not change anything? They are some random people on the internet so there's really no point explaining yourselves to them.

Usually everyone's passive aggressive and presents their statements slightly self-righteously and pretentiously anyways, so I'll admit that I do it too.

You mentioned you apologized, but you apologized saying you are not changing anything? Isn't that just a more polite way to say f*ck off?

Again, you used other people breaking the rules to justify your own breaking. When does this argument work ever? Why bother apologizing to a group you find 'amusing' and probably not care about? You even left your name for PSN and asked for a 'debate.' That sounds like a more poetic version of 'cash me outside how bout dah?' Just because its presented differently it doesn't make it any less similar to 'fight me IRL.'

Think of it this way, I totally could have just ignored everything said here and just unsubscribed from the forum. However, I admit I do care enough to spend my time responding to people who would respond to me.

TL:DR Your argument is flawed, you are acting pretentiously, self-righteously, and are essentially complaining like a child but with the grammar and presentation skills of an adult.

Also, if you read through this paragraph, your ego will force you to reply to my comment with yet another response of similar presentation.

If you read through this whole paragraph, it means you somehow cared about what some random people over the internet thinks, and allowed them to affect your emotions in a negative way. You could technically call me out on doing the same thing, but I admit to that people over the internet do affect me even though they don't change anything.

To be honest, it did come off as patronizing, especially the way you said you weren't going to make changes, which is your choice, but 'The Whine?' I never implied you were whining. Also, you're not sorry. You don't mean it. When someone is truly sorry they not only acknowledge what they did wrong, but they resolve to fix or not do that again. You didn't even acknowledge you broke the site rules you agreed to and you made it very clear you're not going to do anything about your story.

Again, it's your choice. You don't have to be sorry, you don't have to fix your story. I'm just making very clear that based on your choices we are going to report the story that got reviewed.

As for explicit content, yes, we do report those when we come across them, but we don't focus on just that. If you feel that it's such a massive problem, honestly, you should be doing your part and reporting those stories. You can do what we do and warn the writer before reporting or you could just submit an abuse report without saying a word and walk away. Otherwise, shut up about it. Do not imply that is what we should be focusing on. A violation is a violation.

This group is a voluntary stacking of individuals who think they control the site by regulating what people publish? We are all fully aware of what the TOS state. We are also fully aware of the many stories that have been on this site for YEARS, that have not been removed. Again, that is why this group amuses me. But alas I did apologize for lack of effort on my part to comply to your wishes 'Oh Great Ones'.

And you wonder why I question your sincerity. I also question your intelligence because we're not trying to control the site. The site admins do that and set their rules how they wanted them. No, I know you didn't bother reading the TOS. Most people don't. As for the stories that have been on this site for years, your point is? Again, shows your ignorance and laziness because had you bothered to learn how we work you'd know we don't waste our time on old stories and there aren't that many of us. Instead, we'll just focus on know-it-alls like you.

Happy reporting and Oh & Guys. I'm on PSN. My user name '***************'. Feel free to message and have a party chat. I'm always up for a debate.

And Yes the attention is very nice.

And Yes This really works.

Pffft, if this is how you debate then you've failed already by your own laziness. I am editing out your advertisement. Want attention? Pay us. Now go away. No one cares.
