January Romance Pokeauthors, Week 3

In which someone responds to my review in German. From what I can tell, they are apparently using a translation program to write their stories. Why do people do this.

A porn author also gets really weird when I try to ask them why they don’t consider pokemon people.

First, got more revenge reviews:

St Elmo’s Fire,

A new review has been posted to your story.

Story: Blood is Thicker than Water
Chapter: 1. Chapter 1

From: Guest
——————-

:(I’m calling the PC Luna here because Moon is a stupid name.)
You want to know what else is stupid, you. How is Luna a better name then Moon at least in a way, Moon is a creative when it comes to name. Luna, just dumb and means the same thing, honestly in the words of Toy Story. “You are a sad, sad little man.” Please get a life and get of FanFiction and stop craping on people, you and your best friend Flare, by the way. You won’t remember me, because you dumb, but you were my first review to my first story and you told me how lame it was, durning a time of suicde. I started wirting to try and run away from depression and I nearly killed myself after your review, because I couldn’t do anything right.

It’s a shame I can’t respond to these people. It’s always the random anonymous weirdos who say things I’d like the context for.

St Elmo’s Fire,

A new review has been posted to your story.

Story: Blood is Thicker than Water
Chapter: 1. Chapter 1

From: A sincere guest (Guest)
——————-

A sincere guest:Blood is thicker than water but not as thick as your head, it seems. Seriously, have you tried a friendly approach? There are ways to give criticism without being a d*** about it. If it makes you feel any better, I’ll take you up on your “advice”, if only so I won’t have to deal with any future idiots like you. I think the best part of writing stories here in Fanfiction is the chance of meeting new friends. I’m assuming that’s not one of the reasons you’re here, is it?

And by the way… you’re missing out the accent marks on the “e”, you moron.

Now THAT is a long comment of corrections!Thank you for this, but I must say you could present your opinion differently. I’m completely open to people disliking my writing, but to be honest, the way you worded this slightly offended me. I get that not everyone is going to agree with my writing style or like my writing, and that’s perfectly okay, but the reason I’m replying in this fashion is because you sound like you’re actually trying to insult me.Maybe you are. I don’t know.Please clear this up for me. (Note: That was not sarcasm. I sincerely want to know whether you were intentionally trying to offend me or if I simply read it that way.)

1h agoI was not intentionally trying to offend or insult you, no.

1h agoGood. That’s what I thought.

I understand from your profile that the way you review stories is very true to your own thoughts and opinions and that you’re not trying to hurt anybody, but are instead trying to help them improve by pointing out specific problems you believe they could fix. (Correct me if I’m wrong.) I don’t know if you understand exactly why there are so many disrespectful flame comments on your stories, especially since it’s clear to me your original intentions are not harmful.

I just wanted to let you know that, although I certainly don’t agree with responding to you that way and their manor of replying is not appropriate, the way you word your reviews CAN come off as offensive. I mentioned this, of course, but I want to make sure you know that neither side is being entirely unreasonable. I’m pretty sure a large quantity of the authors you’ve written reviews for assume you’re trying to hurt them because of the way you word said reviews.

I have no problem with you trying to help me with my writing skills, and I’m sure they don’t either. But I want to suggest (and, of course, you don’t have to take the suggestion if you feel it’s unnecessary) that you find another milder way to word your reviews. I think people would understand what you’re trying to say more easily. You don’t have to sugarcoat anything about somebody’s story while doing this. It IS possible to word things differently without coming off this way.

P.S. If this, in itself, somehow offended you, I do apologize. As you said about your own review, that wasn’t my intention. Just hear me out. I am, by the way, taking in what you said in your review.

58m ago[But I want to suggest (and, of course, you don’t have to take the suggestion if you feel it’s unnecessary) that you find another milder way to word your reviews. I think people would understand what you’re trying to say more easily. You don’t have to sugarcoat anything about somebody’s story while doing this. It IS possible to word things differently without coming off this way.]

Nope. I’ve tried, doesn’t work. I’ve been doing this for over a year and the only constant I’ve found is that the reviews’ effectiveness lies in the author’s willingness to read them, not in the way I say things. I have gotten the whole spectrum of responses, from “this was super helpful I appreciate what you do” to “I hope you die”, from extremely similar reviews.

If you think a different manner of reviewing would be more effective, I encourage you to do reviews yourself. There are far too few these days.

55m agoI get the feeling you wouldn’t enjoy my type of reviews, although I do write them once in a while. I prefer not to say anything when I don’t particularly enjoy something, which I understand is the opposite of what you do, as you wish to help people fix the issues in their writing.

As I said, if you’ve already tried the suggestion I gave and it hasn’t helped, that’s fine. You don’t have to follow it. It’s just that, although I understood you probably weren’t TRYING to make me feel this way, when I personally looked at your review for the first time, I felt attacked.

I guess there’s really nothing more I can say, so thank you for your feedback in the first place.

This person also made a weird passive-aggressive post on the forum, but disappeared when asked for clarification. Another victim of the Cult of Nice, it seems like.

A response to your review at https://www.fanfiction.net/r/12322576/

I’m writing a story here, not a book that’s meant to make money. Nothing needs to be perfect. I’m doing this for Fun. If you feel this is not sufficient then fuck off.

15m ago[Nothing needs to be perfect. I’m doing this for Fun.]

Sure, but I don’t see why this means you shouldn’t try to make it as good as possible.

12m agoAlso, many of the things you mention are just fine. Looked at from the wrong point of view. The story doesn’t explain everything, for example, sarah was given a name by her trainer / master, which would imply she was wild before then. Wild pokemon do not have names. Also, they Aren’t people, they are Pokemon. Different ammar errors happen, I did not beta read this because I felt it is unnecessary and didn’t want feel the need of putting that much effort into it. One last thing, using “It’s” as a term, implies that the gender is still unknown, if I made a mistake and accidentally said Her or She before that, then forgive me.

secs ago[Wild pokemon do not have names.]

Why wouldn’t sapient creatures with a language system have names?

[One last thing, using “It’s” as a term, implies that the gender is still unknown]

That’s not the problem. “It’s” is not a pronoun, it’s a contraction meaning “it is”. If you want the pronoun, that’s “its”. As I explained in the review.

(Furthermore, “it” actually doesn’t mean “gender unknown”. For that, you want “they”.)

[Also, they Aren’t people, they are Pokemon.]

Really? The things with human-level intelligence and language aren’t people? That’s nonsense.

23m agoWill you just let me write my story instead of typing paragraphs that are most likely written for the purpose of ruining the writers day? I’m doing this for fun, and I don’t need your criticism on my opinions. I’ll take constructive criticism and take it into account, but calling what I’ve worked on nonsense is anything but. I feel as though I’ve done fairly well since 75% of the people around my age group can barely say the word, “Constructive”
22m agoYes, I am an adult, in case that throws you off.

secs ago[paragraphs that are most likely written for the purpose of ruining the writers day? ]

They aren’t.

If you’re comfortable with your level of writing and don’t want to improve, that’s fine. Fanfiction is a hobby, nobody can force you to put more effort into it than you want. However, that means that your stories are going to have flaws that other people would see, and since fics are posted on a public site with a review function, some of those people would point out said flaws. That’s just how this whole thing works. If you don’t like this, you will have to move to another platform that allows you to curate comments more effectively.

16m agoAs I said, I don’t mind constructive criticism, but calling it nonsense is a huge stretch to Constructive. Accusing the writers opinions as flaws is a good way to act like a dick. I’ll take into consideration the things I’ve missed, but be careful how you word your comments.
secs agoIf it really isn’t nonsense, you should be able to explain why it does make sense. If you don’t, I’m just going to assume you know I’m right and don’t want to admit it. An important part of being an artist is being able to defend your choices.
2m agoUnable to defend my choices? I can defend my choices perfectly fine, and I have reasons for everything in this story. You don’t agree with my opinions and choices, and that’s
as far as it goes, it has nothing to do with defending it. I have my reasons for considering Pokemon not people, but there’s nothing I can do about it, because it’s your opinion that they are, and that’s fine. Everyone has their own opinions and that’s what sets us apart. Just don’t go accusing others because they have differences from your beliefs.

secs ago[I have my reasons for considering Pokemon not people]

And they are…?

28m agoHave you ever caught a Lucario, and moments after catching it, it says, “Hi, My names Leo.” They are referred to by, Lucario. They do not give themselves names, which was one reason you mentioned. There are many Pokemon that can seem very human-like like a Lucario, or a Gardevoir, and they may be able to talk under some circumstances, socialize, have a fully conscious mind, but not all Pokemon are like that, and it is my personal opinion that even though they can be great friends, allies, companions, whatever it may be, they’re not People. Mankind are people. This is as far as this conversation may go before something like Religion gets thrown into the mix of this. This is a P.M over a sex story.

secs ago[Have you ever caught a Lucario, and moments after catching it, it says, “Hi, My names Leo.”]

Well of course they don’t, they can’t communicate with humans. Just because you can’t understand what someone is saying doesn’t mean they’re not intelligent or can’t have a name in their own language.

[There are many Pokemon that can seem very human-like like a Lucario, or a Gardevoir, and they may be able to talk under some circumstances, socialize, have a fully conscious mind, but not all Pokemon are like that, and it is my personal opinion that even though they can be great friends, allies, companions, whatever it may be, they’re not People.]

If I’m understanding you right, you’re saying that some pokemon, like lucario and gardevoir, count as people, but the ones that are less intelligent do not. That does indeed make the phrase “pokemon and people” nonsense, because some pokemon are people. That’s like saying “mammals and humans”. It would be clearer if you said “pokemon and humans”, since that seems to be the important distinction here.

32m agoYou did not hear my right, unfortunately, I meant that some may appear more human-like than others, but Pokemon in general are not People.
secs agoWhat is your definition of “person”, exactly?

Thank you for your review. I do agree with the summary/author’s note part of your review, so thank you for that. I’m very new at this site so I’m not all entirely sure how it works. However, as for the capitalization of the names of Pokémon, I disagree. In the games, the names of Pokémon and the species (Pokémon) is capitalized. This is the main reason I’m capitalizing these. I appreciate your input though, so thanks. Also, the new speaker, new paragraph thing is something I’ve never really thought about before, but something I have noticed in other books/stories, so thanks for that advice as well. Thank you again for the review. I would like to hear more from you; you sound like a good person to have giving advice. Thanks again, -V. Pylon.

Alright so I’ll try to fix the category thing later. How does centering text make it difficult to read? You are aware that’s how most Californian English teachers make their students type their essays? Noy using paragraphs makes you not want to read? That’s fine by me, don’t read this was made because I enjoy making them. Not so I feel like I’m just doing a job
Tried to ask for more information on the teacher thing, got no response.

Ich habe schon ein gutes Programm gefunden, dass mir hilft. Und ich verstehe nicht ganz was du mit dem erstens Satzt meinst, denn ich kenne mich nicht so gut aus mit dieser Website.

Whyyyy is this happening. According to Google Translate:

“I’ve already found a good program that helps me. And I do not quite understand what you mean with the first sentence, because I do not know me so well out with this site.”

secs agoMein erster Satz bedeutet, dass nicht-geschichtige Kapitel auf dieser Seite verboten sind. Lesen Sie die Richtlinien.Übersetzungsprogramme arbeiten für normale Konversation, aber für Geschichten müssen Sie wirklich die Sprache verstehen. Dies ist sehr schwierig, wenn Sie nicht mit der Sprache vertraut sind. Ich verstehe nicht, was Sie aus dem Schreiben in einer unbekannten Sprache gewinnen.

So habe ich zB Google Translate ins Deutsche übersetzt. Sie können es verstehen (ich hoffe), aber es wäre nicht akzeptabel für einen Roman, nicht wahr?

“My first sentence means that non-story chapters are banned on this site. Read the guidelines.

Translation programs work for normal conversation, but for stories you need to truly understand the language. This is very difficult if you are not familiar with the language. I do not understand what you gain from writing in an unfamiliar language.

For example, I translated this to German using Google Translate. You can understand it (I hope), but it would not be acceptable for a novel, right?”
12m agoNun ja ich habe soebend vor einiger Zeit meinen Roman hochgeladen. Mein Partner, der mich gefragt hat ob ich ihm eine Geschichte schreiben könnte, war sehr begeistert und es hat ihm anscheinend gefallen.
Und auf die frage was mit mit dem Schreiben einer unbekannten Sprache gewinnen kann ist ganz einfach.
Die Antwort : Man lernt die Sprache somit besser und übt seine schreibfähigkeiten:)( Also ich finde es so)
Ich kann ja auch die Sprache einigermaßen gut deswegen ist sie mir nicht so unbekannt und deswegen habe ich auch beschlossen hier einen Roman zu schreiben für andere, weil es mir einfach spaß macht.Th3Man / Daniel
“Well, I’ve soebend some time ago uploaded my novel. My partner, who asked me if I could write a story to him, was very enthusiastic and he seemed to like it.
And to the question what can win with writing an unknown language is quite simple.
The answer: You learn the language better and practice your writing skills:) (So I think so)
I can also speak the language well, therefore, it is not so unknown to me and that is why I decided to write a novel here for others because it makes me just fun.”

secs ago[I can also speak the language well]

No, you cannot. Your story is incoherent. If you are doing this to practice English… well, okay, but you are aiming for a much higher level than you are capable of right now. If you are determined to learn how to write in English, you have a lot of work ahead of you, which is why I recommended a beta reader.

29m agoIch bin nicht hier um mich mit dir zu streiten. Die Person die eine Geschichte haben wollte hat die bekommen und war zufrieden. Das war mein Ziel. Ich kann die Sprache ja auch sprechen. Und wenn es dir nicht gefällt wie ich schreibe, dann ließ einfach meine Geschichten nicht mehr, die laut dir inkohärent sind. Wenn du es so meinst. Jeder hat ja seine eigene Meinung und ich finde jeder kann die äußern. Wenn es aber einem Leser aus Amerika gefallen hat finde ich das ich wenigstens etwas für mache.Th3Man / Daniel

“I’m not here to argue with you. The person who wanted to have a story got the and was satisfied. That was my goal. I can also speak the language. And if you do not like how I write, just leave my stories no more, which are incoherent according to you. If you think so. Everyone has their own opinion and I find everyone can express the. But if it pleased a reader from America, I think that I at least make something for.”

Why do people do this.

Okay first of all thanks for reviewing.
Second thanks for your enthusiastic review. I wish more people left reviews like yours.I understand that I did something wrong with commas but honestly your review is pretty jumbled together to the point that I can’t really decipher it.
Could you maybe point out a point where I did the mistake in question?Finally, I wanted to ask if you’ve ever considered being a Beta Reader? You clearly know your grammar and judging from what I read from your fanfics you’re a good writer (even if you don’t update that regularly, although neither do I).Anyway thanks again for the review. I’ll do my best to fix the mistakes and do less mistakes in the future.

Pointed out a few specific errors and directed them to the beta thread.

However, that’s not really what I wish to discuss, because as you said, if I have any grievances, I take it to the Capitalization Thread. Do you have any other general feedback for me, not necessarily Pokemon, but rather grammar?Your review was quite helpful, well phrased, and thought-provoking.

I fixed quite a lot of the grammar mistakes as you suggested. However, Lucario’s spikes are actually on the back’s of their paws, not their palms. As for the Pokemon’s anatomy and abilities playing a part into the story, that will come in later in the story.

Hey, thanks for the review! Last time I saw someone use bracketing in their review it was not a fun time. At least you’re actually constructive though.[I appreciate that you’re not capitalizing pokemon.]Are you referring to my disclaimer…? If so, that’s not exactly a rare sight on ffn.[I can’t tell whether you’ve never been to college or if you’re intentionally trying to make the protagonist sound like he has no idea what he’s talking about.]Lemme preface this by saying this story does not reflect my actual life in any way. The only “parody” aspect about the fic is the use of high school stereotypes in college. The jolteon is in fact making up the story as he goes along, adding embellishments to make it seem more like a high school story as if to appeal to a live audience. Do you think I’m advertising it too much as a parody?

[…So is the idea supposed to be that he’s a human making this story up as he goes along, or…?]

What?

[I don’t know what fic you’ve been reading, but eeveelutions are even more overused than those two.]

True! Why I didn’t think of that is beyond me. Fixed.

[“Sell out”, two words.]

Correct. Sellout is a noun. Fixed, thanks. (In the spirit of being nit-picky, keep that comma enclosed in your quotation marks.)

[What? This looks like you forgot to fill a placeholder.]

X=ecstasy. You know, street names.

[How is body dysmorphia related to this? She just said she wasn’t related to his stalker, nothing about his body. This reads like you’re just throwing around random medical terms you heard once without knowing what they mean.]

Okay. You know how hyperboles are meant to over-exaggerate something to a humorous extent? The whole dysmorphia is merely meant to be humorous. He doesn’t literally have dysmorphia. It’s an exaggerated style of writing.

[“Questioned” is what police do; it’s a synonym for “interrogated”, not “asked”.]

Ah, and here I am thinking it was just another word for ask! You learn something new every day.

[When narration contains a non-speaking verb, it’s s separate sentence and is punctuated appropriately.]

Fixed, although in this day and age it seems like grammar is becoming more and more bendable.

You brought up some very good points about the anthro stuff. If I continue the story, I’ll change all the classes to be based around, I don’t know, moves and such, rather than real world subjects like math and music. I’ll definitely try and work on that stuff. If you’ve ever seen “Bojack Horseman,” the writer does a clever job including all these different animals in the world, their roles often depending on their anatomy.

As for the jolteon—yes, he IS insufferable. He’s meant to overcome this, like the flawed character he should be. I see a lot of the time how other characters must merely overcome their shyness, but they are moral and sensible otherwise. I find it interesting when a character isn’t likable right off the bat, but instead becomes more appealing as he/she opens up to the reader. But perhaps, in an effort to make the jolteon less one-dimensional, I made him too mean?

Anyway, you’ve given me some stuff to think about. Again, thanks for the constructive review, and I hope to hear from you again!

Nope, no dice. Don’t blame you, it must be difficult to remember all the people you copy and past reviews to. I don’t normally do this, I can go by life without a care in the world.
But, as I went a way, it hit me, I know what’s wrong with the Pokemon community now. It used to be great, people support each other and show them the route and there was only one grammar Nazi around to toss sticks at you. But, it’s people like you that take the life out of it, you read Fic’s that still need a long way to learn, like my first one was, and only a beginning to the fandom world and then your bring reality into them. I get what your trying to do and I have majority improve because of it, but maybe say something nice every once and a while and you might get a cheerleading team because of it. This message isn’t to laugh at you your face, showing how far I’ve came. It was at first, but it’s more of warning call, call me the Christmas ghost, trying to give you, your set of reality to sink in. I’m not being hash, I’m just giving you a warning, not about me, but to whoever decided to snap at you later on. I admit, your review has helped me and I have majorly improve because of you, but it doesn’t hurt to say something nice every now and again. Remember karma is always watching.
secs agoDo I know you?
3m agoVery unlikely, unless you remember the story. “Mystery in town,” it was one of first Fic’s and I was the one who back fire on you. My message early is not trying to sound harsh to you, it’s simply a warning or kind words given to you. Have a good a day.

    I’m from California and I’ve never had any teacher tell me to center align my writing on anything other than poetry and titles.

    Their German isn’t that great either. Mixing up “das” and “dass” is a big no-no, especially if you fancy yourself an author.

    I’m amazed that that last one managed to carry off such an egotistical rant while simultaneously pointing out that you helped them improve. “Heed my words of warning, or else you might again do exactly what you are trying to do and actually teach somebody something valuable!”

    Well, many people want more exposition, if your story isn’t in Eng, then chances not a lot of people are going to read it, thus, the translation thing comes as a means to increase views appealing to more people. Though, your logic is still there, if you submit something you must be prepared to receive criticism, and not being native Eng writer isn’t an excuse.
    I had some stories that tried to translate, I ran spellchecks, followed some guides of grammar and still didn’t look good enough, so, I didn’t upload them.

    1. I’m somewhat sympathetic to this reasoning, but at the same time, yeah, if you admit you’re just doing it for more exposure you really don’t have an excuse for not doing it properly.
