About e-reader


Having read lots of stories on here I joined so I can send lovely messages to the many writers who give me pleasure. It seems the least I can do. I don't intend joining in chats or forums or to ask to be friends with any of you. I hope no one thinks there's anything wrong with that.

It's a little disheartening to see that someone who's been here over 3 years, commented on over 50 stories and voted on more than 100 should feel in any way as a "low level Lush member". Can you imagine what sort of message you'd have received if you had left a message saying "Average at best".

I hope this lack of self-awareness is just a small minority of authors - though I can imagine they would be a very vocal minority. Scores and comments should be as individual as the people who give them

OK, I understand that I comment more than some but I was comparing myself to the more dedicated Lush members. I would also hope to come up with something better that "Average at best" but again, I accept your point.

I would be interested in the answer to one question in my role as a reader and that is does a writer value a comment with no score above or below a score with no comment? I suppose they could also be seen as equal as well.

In my limited communication with writers I get the feeling that a comment means more to most but I may be wrong.

I don't usually contribute to the Forum but I would like to thank the contributors to this thread for explaining the issues surrounding this subject.

I recently received a vitriolic message from a writer because I gave one of their stories a 3 and failed to leave a comment. I have to accept that the lack of comment was an error on my part but among the torrents of abuse the score was referred to as "low" which surprised me. They then told me not to bother replying because they had blocked me (whatever that means).

It is all a lot clearer now. Thank you.

From where I sit as a very low level Lush member, an option to comment and "Like" would be perfect. Because my intention is not to anger writers, I now only score if I'm going to give it a 5, a comment with no score just means I would have scored it lower. That is actually a comment and a Like if you want to think of it in that way.
