So I thought I was doing the right thing on here and I reviewed (well I thought I had) several pieces (5 actually) before submitting a chapter of my story to be reviewed only to have a mod close my thread saying I hadn't given two constructive reviews? Now I don't claim my reviews were great but I wanted them to be honest and not just post them for the sake of getting my stuff reviewed. Problem is everything I felt qualified to comment on had already been extensively reviewed and any point I would have pointed out had already been pointed out. I confined my comments to things others hadn't already picked up while still trying to help with my comments. Yet apparently they weren't constructive. I feel as though I commented honestly and with the correct intentions so why am I being judged as not providing constructive reviews. Am I supposed to ignore what has already been said and say what has already been said for it to be considered a 'constructive' review. Is it just me or is repeating information the very opposite of constructive? So the question I pose to you is, what sort of information can you give to an item with several reviews on it? Do I just have to hope I get in and review first on a new post to become part of this forum or is there extra information I can provide? I have no skills in spelling or grammar, so the only things I can point out are general flow, language used and the feel of the story. What hope is there for me? Desperate for your input! The comments I received before the thread was shut we invaluable and I really want to be able to be an active member but I don't know if I can be useful around here or not as apparently my reviews are worthless.
