Oh, and still no sign of an explanation of the 'proper' way to score a story.
Tyu going back and reading what was said, as it's clear you need to learn a proper way of reading.
My first post in this thread said, bold added for emphasis:
You are looking at three different readerships that have some mutual sub-set overlaps. One thing to remember is that FS is the only one that allows readers under 18, and most of them won't have developed a good enough sense of story scoring.
notice - good enough - states poor quality
Next response of mine to your attack:
So, you believe someone with no or little experience in a field knows all their is to tell about it? You believe limited knowledge on proper grammar, spelling, sentence structure, plot development means people can properly assess and score a written material?
With age and experience comes the ability to better judge, value, and compare things, especially things like stories. The average 10 year old doesn't have the same ability to follow and enjoy a complex story the average 10 year old has. Thus a complex story a 20 year old can follow, enjoy, and score well is very likely to be scored down by a much younger person who can't follow it well and gets lost in the complexity of the story.
I speak of the ability to assess and evaluate, and how it improves with age. If it improves with age, then the unimproved are obviously not doing it well. Not do it well, means it's not a proper assessment.
I point out the reason why younger readers are likely to give a lower score due to the lower experience meaning they don't enjoy the story, regardless of how good a story it is. Yet you ignore all that and think it's OK to down score a story because you don't enjoy it due to not having the knowledge or skill to understand it or assess it.
It's a recognition of the facts of life, not an elitist view.
However, since every time you lose a point you move the goal posts and try to expand it further, go right ahead and expand it again.
The thread started as a call for understanding why the scores vary - I explained that. The FS site has younger readers who are less experienced at assessing scores, and in some cases down vote because they don't understand the story and thus don't like it. I've explained why it happens and the cause, but feel free to go right ahead keep moving the discussion off to something where you think you can score points.
