It's just more of a preference, sure you can put crap like that in your titles (stuff like NWC, or OWC are different cases becuase those are nessesary) but it becomes unessesary when you already have 'Ready to be Graded" in your story (which you should with the Pokemon and Characters, I think we all know how to do that) and it's a little obnoxious seeing it everywhere else. Like a few pages back castleoblivion keep posting in here about their story needing to be graded. Yea you can do that, and you're very much welcomed to, but it's just a bit annoying when it becomes constant every other few posts, and in the story, and in the title, and in the signature, ect. and would be perfered (at least by me) for it to not be there.
If you wanted critisism, or helpfull feedback that's what this place is for. Post it here and ask, not in the title. When I go through the story section I skip stories that have those extra facts in the title becuase it's more of a 'newbie' thing to do, 'newbie' in my case is equal to immature, and I'd much rather read a story that will make me want to read on and not make me think of my 10 year old second cousin telling me a story about pogeymanz. So having "WIP" and "Ready for Grading" in the title sends me a red flag and to stray away from those stories.
Sorry, just thought it was a bit needed to be said. :I
Oh and George, your happiness brings me more tears. NEVER ENDING CYCLE @.@
For the Ready to be Graded issue, I suppose that is why we now have a functioning list of what is graded and what needs to be graded.
I do see where you are coming from and I only had anything similar in my title for my first story. But, some people just like it better that way. Who are we to tell them how to title their stories?
Well, it's bears. You can't put anything past them.
I grade things for the URPG.
New experimental grading system. Request a tier after I claim your story:
Tier I / Basic: A quick verdict and some useful advice without much fuss.
Tier II / Normal: More in-depth analysis.
Tier III / Heavy: I WILL TEAR YOUR STORY TO SHREDS AND TAP-DANCE ON THE PIECES
Legs can't be disemboweled.
Putting brain damaging colours and killer bears aside, I was wondering who grades the Merciless stories?
Hey, Ace. :)
I would guess Scourge, just because she's "Lead Grader" and all, but I don't think any set person does it.
And ok. NeighbourhoodGuest told me it would be a senior person, but I wanted to double check who that was. I suppose it would have to be senior to read my 71,000character story :P
Ah. Okay. Amputated. Much more sense there.
