If I have a problem with the way a storyline goes or how my character is treated, I won't pretend it doesn't exist just so I don't hurt anyone's feelings. So no, I wasn't referring to everyone in general and I don't how that irks you but if it does, just know that I won't be changing my feelings on that matter.

See? THIS is exactly what I'm talking about. Look, I understand that reviews are important and all but the expectations concerning reviews, can get ridiculous at times and this paragraph sums up my gripes perfectly. This implies that I can give shows my best promos week in and week out along with committing to storyline development with IC'ing but it doesn't mean squat because I don't give reviews? And neglecting to do so is a slap to the face? Y'know, I remember a time when reviews weren't even a thing and creative members, that posted shows, would be okay with basic acknowledgement like "Good job!" or "Way to go!" and that'll be it. They didn't expect feedback or get uptight just because it wasn't there. Shows went up regardless and interest in the fed was gauged by how much activity happened not by how many people did or didn't leave a show review.
And that last sentence of yours? It leaves more of a bitter taste in my mouth. I've told people, a few times before, that with my feedback, I don't kiss ass and I don't brown nose. You won't find me telling creative or anyone who contributed to the show what a super fantastic job they did and leave it at that. And you know what? That means that if feedback isn't coming in from me or anyone else, because apparently that means we "just don't care", that means that I'm depriving both creative and the
promo writers and as far as creative goes, all I'll be depriving them is a pat on the back with flowery and flattering discourse. If anything, I feel worse for the promo writers because their work could always be improved on and without feedback from other users, it may not happen. Yet for some reason, I've read instances where some creative members are like, "Where are the reviews?! Why aren't you appreciating what we do more?!". Hell, if you want gratitude, I can give you gratitude but like I was referring to before, a simple "Thank you!" or "You guys rock!" should suffice. Remember when I was doing my KayFabulous vlogs? Yeah, I barely got a past two sentences with most of the responses I got but in the end, it suited me just fine because at least I knew that people were reading and people were enjoying what I was doing. Oh and I don't recall ever guilt tripping people into doing it either. Not pointing fingers with that last statement, either. If the shoe fits.
So overall, that was what I was getting at, Vand. But the gist of this thread was that I was relieving my workload a bit but I guess it's good I got that off my chest so thanks for addressing that.
