But that's exactly what makes the recommendation process utterly meaningless. If you walked into a bookshop and saw "Recommended by anonymous" you would be well within your rights to question the validity of the recommendation.

I appreciate the drama and difficulty involved in having a transparent system but it means we're left with an opaque system which, as you've alluded to, has and will naturally gravitate towards cronyism. It will always be questioned. It was an ill-concerned idea, albeit with the best intentions.

If people want to be recommended, the process is simple: get as many friends as you can who are mods. And make sure you get them to read your stuff. The more who read it, the more likely one of them will recommend it. It's playing a percentage game. If you're only relying on the person who approved it to give it an RR you're just relying on luck.

Yeah but when you walk into a book store and see that fucking Brad recommended Twilight: New Moon it might as well be anonymous because you don't know fucking Brad. And if you do know Brad then you probably don't need to go to the store to get his recommend.

When video rental places still existed, the one I went to had "staff picks". It didn't say fucking Brad recommends the Little Mermaid.

Look, saying that girls getting into a nightclub for free or girls getting cheaper drinks on girls night and calling it discrimination against men sounds like some dumb ass menenist shit that lame ass cringy guys cry about.

So what if they get a cheaper drink sometimes. It is such an embarrassing thing for a guy to whine about. I get second hand embarrassment from it.

The truth is that it is more expensive in general to be a woman anyway.

I am thankful for Milik. That loves me so much he stayed on the phone with me for almost 19 hours

I am grateful that I clicked on this thread and saw that. I have a hard time staying on the phone for 19 minutes. This is truly inspirational.

While some of what you said I agree with, not all of it, though. What you or some people might call mediocre (insert laugh). Some people like myself included will find it interesting. Yes, people have different taste so the same story that you read that has a "lasting" effect on you would have a "yawn" effect on someone else. Now you might see an ugly, hideous how did you say it? Oh sloth-like creature, while I might see a beautiful baby. Who is wrong? So yes I agree on the part that you think that the mediocre should get better and try and edit better, proofread better or whatever the case maybe. I don't call people mediocre just a thing I have against a scale system I hate them! Saying, one person is better than other based on one person's outlook is pure stupidity.

I have never said and will never say that it relies on a "friend or knowing a person" system. I have just stated in the past and what I (personally) have read is not worthy of an RR to me. Which can go hand in hand as you or other people can read any of my stories and say NONE is worthy, which I can wholeheartedly say YAY! I do not strive for an RR. I like my stories to be different not to coincide with the "norm."

What I agreed with JC about is. I can see where he gets the idea from. And for anyone to blindly sit and say NO YOU'RE WRONG. Well now that is being the sloth creature you mentioned (not saying, anyone, is). Every system can be seen different by every individual and while some see it as perfect and working. Some might see it needing a tweak or another look. As someone once said, nothing in this world is perfect. So before saying it is always the mediocre complaining/whining. Take a look again and see it from someone else's view not just your own.

Like I said before I am not pointing fingers or am I judging anyone. In my eyes, your all great writers. Hell just putting your work and thoughts online to be seen by many deserves a hand clap. Keep up the good work and keep writing and striving for whatever you want from this site. Myself I like any comments whether you copy and paste it, say you like it, hate it. Just give it a read and rate it a 1. I like writing and not getting an RR, or a five will not stop me. Not even being called mediocre (laugh) Sorry that word just makes me laugh.

Look, I checked JC'c profile and read a little bit of his writing. He is not the worst I have ever seen but he is certainly not the best. I think mediocre is more than fair, maybe even generous.

If JC had RRs he wouldn't even be bringing this up. No mod thought he was worthy to recommend, that's it.

And if nothing is perfect then no amount of tweaking is going to make the RR system better. And I hope you are not suggesting that they tweak it enough so that everyone can have RRs, even the mediocre writers, because that would make it pointless.

It's like you reached into my brain and plucked the words right out!

This. Exactly this.

While I agree with Burquette, she did say that her name was on the shelf. It wasn't "book store staff picks", it was her name. One of the things that always is brought up when this argument resurfaces is that the conspiracy theorists want to know which mod gave the RR.

Posted 20 May 2016 16:04

RR's don't mean quality writing. A mod just likes and passes a personal feeling. People have to understand that RR's are not an award. I am honored if an when I receive one, but it doesn't have to mean that I am a accomplished scribbler. The Mod simply wants to pass his or her personal view.

That is very true.

I deserved that. And, my ass probably is big enough to (edit) fit over you. I need to take up jogging, lol! Honestly, that (edit again) last post wasn't meant to come off the way it did. I can be difficult, I know it. It's my worst flaw. I was angry, and mean. I will own my outbursts, it would be silly to deny them, all anyone has to do is look up old threads. I don't blame you.

Consider this my public apology, because it is...

See, the thing about realizing that someone has a disingenuous, dishonest, and dishonorable nature is this... You don't believe or trust what their intent is ever again. When I read this I just see a person setting themselves to act like a victim again. You want to publicly apologize so that next time I say something you can try to paint me like a villain who is mean even though you apologized. I wasn't born yesterday.

I want guy's night drink discounts, cause I like cheap beer

Life in general is "guy's night". Women get the shit end of the stick most of the time. "Girls night" discounts aren't some kind of male discrimination. When your balls drop and you get some life experience you will figure that out.

Jack if that was the case you'd be coming out of my ass, lol! I don't like this whole block thing. I'm sorry, okay, I am a real stinker sometimes, but at least I own it. Regaeman Man

While I actually believe that your ass is probably big enough for me to fit under... A lot of your recent posts have been disingenuous at best and blatant lies at worst. "Owning it" means very little to me.

Every single time this topic comes up I find it funny that it is always mediocre writers complaining about it. Every time...

I recently stumbled upon a writer on here who has a bunch of RRs. She only has like 9 friends on her list and I don't think any of them are mods. I have read two of her stories so far and they were both excellent. Some of the most original and interesting stories I have read on here. Obviously her ability to tell a story was what got her recognized by whatever mod awarded her some RRs.

I don't read all the RRs I see but I don't remember thinking any of them didn't deserve the recognition. I haven't read simmerdownchicks two RRs so maybe it really is bullshit, but from my experience, they seem legit for the most part. The editor's picks too. I only read one editor's pick which I thought was totally bogus but that was a long time ago and that was the only one. Not a bad record so far with finding a quality story with an EP.

I think many mediocre writers look for some kind of conspiracy as to why they don't get awarded RRs instead of you know, getting better at writing a memorable story with a beginning, middle and end, an engaging plot, natural and realistic sex scenes, intriguing characters and a few surprises. Validation comes from the people who read your stories and let you know in the comments. You can tell the difference from some generic comment and a comment from someone who really enjoyed your words. If your comments consist of the former, guess what? You're a mediocre writer. Just because you have 40 "whoa sexy story xx" comments doesn't mean you deserve awards 'n' shit.

Nobody ever writes something, posts it and thinks it's a dog turd. Writers are just like new parents. New parents always think they have a cute baby but we all know that not all babies are cute. Some are downright hideous and look like a tiny version of sloth from the goonies.

Obviously you haven't dated chicks who are hot. Hot chicks are a major pain in the ass but fucking them regularly is awesome. It's like climbing Everest to get to the top. It's a lot of fucking work, most of the time it's worth it if you make it back down with all your limbs and your life, but it's real tough

Now here's a thought... You might could play off that mormon polygamy thing and try talking her into bringing some of her cute friends into it. Can you handle a FFFM of wild, horny, formerly sexually repressed ex-mormon chicks wearing out every inch of you? Of course, that would require a Lush story to be written. Maybe call it, The NEW Book of Mormon.

Buz... No.

So there is an inherent culture of violence within male society perhaps?

Yes, yes there is.

Imagine there is a plane crash on some isolated island in the middle of the ocean and there are 20 survivors, all men. The leaders would immediately start to emerge and it is all based on violence, the will to commit it, brains and physicality. There could be a guy that is a lot bigger than the rest so the other guys tend to listen. Except maybe the guy that is smart enough to start sharpening a stick in case that big guy wants to shut him up with violence. There could be an even smarter guy that knows how to hunt and create fire (also violent) that can provide and emerges as the leader but will stay the leader because several other guys will protect him using violence from any challengers. Different groups might form and they will start to grab sticks and rocks to protect themselves in case the other group tries to steal their stuff. That is what would happen because men are violent. That is how we evolved. It was necessary early on for our survival as a species. We wouldn't have survived nature if we sat with a saber-toothed tiger and tried to talk out our differences. That violence is still in us. Some more than others.

I think Utah is just mad cause such a high number of Mormon chicks are becoming pornstars.

My girlfriend is an ex mormon and she is totally out of her mind in bed, like fucking wild, a mustang.

I think there is a correlation there with the religion at an early age and the freeing of oneself in adulthood. Like how the farther you pull back on a bowstring the farther the arrow will fly when you release it.

Oh lucky me, I found it. But lucky you, your's and Steph's posts were removed since. Anyway, just living up to my word. Everyone else, make what you want of it.

As I recall, Steph said you were suspended for two weeks for it? I'm not sure, maybe a month I can't remember...

Wait what? I was suspended for what? Refresh my memory because you lie so much that I can't keep track of them all.

And I wouldn't take the word of a whackadoo who suspended himself - forever - too seriously, but that's just me.
