Thread: URPG Stories Chat and Feedback

    Technically, all graders grade when they want to.

    I don't know how many graders grade only on request though... there probably are a few that I haven't heard about for that reason.

    I thought we already had a list of successful stories. And if you wanted to know who to ask wouldn't be useful to know if they graded a story and failed the person too? I mean, the grader isn't just going to wait around for the person to fix the story and regrade it, they might just go on and grade other stories and wait for the person to finish, so asking them to grade would be useful as well.

    Uhm... duh? Thanks for clarifying the obvious? x'P

    I meant that we had a sort of sub-list that sorted successful (or unsuccessful, if that's what you folks wanted... but we had just agreed not to put failed stories on the other list so I was uncertain) by grader, not by capture type. That way, if folks wanted to request grades for shorter stories, they could ask graders that were more prone to grading shorter stories, and so on.

    I don't know. It sounds like a silly idea now.

    I know we're technically not supposed to be ussing chatspeak in stories, but I want to do a series of tweets froma Magikarp as a story. You know, following it around battling, getting, captured, etc. Would I be allowed to use chatspeak for that? Not just complete ccrap, but basic stuff like 'lol' or smilies.

    I think if it is used in the context of someone speaking, or their thoughts, the sky is the limit. Chatspeak is probably more frowned upon when in description. If that is how your character talks, I don't see how it is a problem.

    Sure go for it. Just don't go overboard and be like 'omglulz dat wux da bst f'n thng iv eb3r seeeen cuz i brly get out o da huose' because then the grader would get too annoyed to read the rest, or be so annoyed they'll fail you and make you retype it all (you'd understand being a grader yourself). Otherwise go for it, sounds creative.

    Do stories actually need a battle? I know that this thread here says that it isn't absolutely necessary, but I haven't seen a work (on BMGf, PE2K is probably a different story) that doesn't involve one.

    I've seen one or two and they went okay (grade wise) so I'd say go for it if you want :]

    Well, good. Because it's for your Rotom, so you'd better hope it works. :D

    My story 'Sacrifice' didn't have a battle in it and I still got Ralts. Yea, you don't need one, but usually in stories there is some kind of action and people find it creative to have the Pokemon use their attacks. :]



    Also for you BMGers who still don't understand this; I DO NOT LIKE IT WHEN YOU POST IN MY STORIES UNLESS YOU ARE A GRADER, HAVE A QUESTION, PROBLEM, WHATEVER, PM ME. K thanks.

    Oh and PE2Kers, remember a time when that was a 'uh-DUH' kind of thing and now it's more of a 'well... hm..' kind of thing? Yea good times.

    Wait someone post in your stories? That was always a don't do ever. It's like posting in battle, you just don't do that.

    Yeah. I saw some jackass put something along the lines of "How original, didn't you rip that off from Futurama" when Zombie clearly posted at the beginning that that's what it was based off of. Jerk :b

    You don't need a battle, my Escaping Authority story had a car chase instead of a battle, and it got one of the most glowing reviews I've ever seen.

    If you're planning on writing a story without a battle, please drop me a link when it's done, I'd be very interested to see what you do.
