Management (Lazeez--I got it right!) has graciously given us a corner to well, hang out. (Zip up that fly).
It has been discussed elsewhere (see Bug spray) that reviews may or may not give Appeal to Reviewer scores less than six. I actually gave a 5 once, but felt bad about it. I explained I wanted to see why all of the author's other stories were 8s or above (well one was 7.99 that day) except the one I reviewed. I consoled my self it was a collaboration for the first couple of chapters, which was all I could read. Not with a current author here, and there were situations designed to test my ability to suspend disbelief beyond what I could endure. The author sent a very nice email, indicating I used the wrong School of Business as the one that educated one of the King's advisors.
I love one of his other stories, but somebody beat me to reviewing it and with certain exceptions (like the old review is ten years old) reviews should help bring attention to stories that haven't had reviews before. Your opinion may vary. If you strongly disagree with the first reviewer it might be worth while to be the second reviewer.
There are a lot of reviewers who don't do very many reviews before they seem to give it up as a bad job. Compared to being an author, its easy, IMHO. I just need to be careful to review stories I like. I like a lot of them. I try to wait until a story is complete, but there are other editors who beat me to the best stories that way. The reason I like to review complete stories is that mostly I don't read stories until they are complete. I broke that rule with Banadin's Ricky Jackson Saga Ninth Grade. I got all the way to the 25th chapter before I decided other people should know how great the story was. I admit the final chapter, 40, lacked a little plot, but it was a list of books the hero had read in the other chapters. On that list is a story Banadin is going to post next. I am going to try hard not to review it until it is complete. Impulse control, that's my problem.
