don’t attack another user through your rants (i.e. tagging them, announcing their username/real name, etc.)
this is a ranting thread, not a drama thread! do not bring up any specific people or groups and be as ambiguous, vague, and respectful as possible when ranting about forum related issues
if you have beef with someone on the forums, PM them and talk to them about it. being petty and indirecting anyone here won’t solve any of your problems

hey friends, welcome back!! i got new rules for this thread (i got em)
discussions are okay, and even a bit of disagreeing here and there, but please stop yourself from typing in all caps (typing in all caps is fine by me but don’t use it as a way to yell at someone from your keyboard), insulting someone else, or dragging out a discussion for more than an hour.
if you’re that pressed and really wanna fight, take your tea to your private messages…lol

Um here’s my rant…
If I should be honest, I think that I’m going to stop writing both my episode stories…
This might be selfish, but I at least expected some reads, and my story to be ranked well, and well, it’s not.
I really wanted to share my story, and interest people with something different and new besides the cliches that are filling the rankings…
All these stories about sex and romance are hogging the boards. So basically, if your story doesn’t have sex, kissing, love, or porn, nobody wants to read it.
These stories that are only like 10 hours old come and dominate #2 while mine, created a month ago, stands in #2014 or #3.1418929783810374837882790378003802378383… (my rank’s almost the number pi, and yes, i mean ALL OF PI. -.- )
It’s always :
SEX SEX PORNY PORNY F**K
Description: THIS IS A REALLY POORLY DONE STORY BUT IT HAS SEX AND NAKED PPL SO IT’LL BE THE BEST ANYWAY
characters face the wrong way
it’s you’re not your i think aloud in my head
uses numbers for letters
talks in slang
characters wear the censored bar outfits the whole story
doesn’t even do any coding except use the narrator
characters stand motionless on screen while i endlessly tap through really bad narrated erotica
comments are filled with: ZOMG MY NAMESS KELLY PUT ME IN UR STORY I GOT THE BIGGEST BOOBS WELL THEIR ACTUALLY SMALL BUT GIMME BOOBS ANYWAY AND I HAVE TAN SKIN AND I WANT 500000 BOYFRANDS!
If it’s not porn, it’s copied material or cliches.
Like no I don’t want to see your horribly done Hunger Games episodes. I can bet you" Katniss" has the long ponytail for a hairstyle, uses a gun, and the violence is punching and the action push_away. And no, you did not create the Hunger Games by yourself. There is a .00000000001% chance Suzanne Collins, got a time machine and got on episode and saw your story and was like “Oh good golly miss molly I will steal this story idea from an unknown stranger and make a trilogy out of it!”
And can we talk about the 50sog remakes, like , I’m sorry but I don’t see anything sexy about a bunch of pixels on the floor and doing pushing actions while you awkwardly narrate the whole situation. It looks like a shameful crime scene that involves cartoon characters and really bad spot directing not some erotica that turns people on… If you’re just going to end up using the narrator for the whole story, do something on Wattpad.
And lastly, sighs the cliches. The love triangle thing is overused, ok. Just cause you slap on a different title, and use different characters doesn’t mean your love triangle is any different from anybody else’s. Add 5 guys to choose from, even add 1000 it’ll still be cliche. 2 guys fighting over a woman, might as well call the Episode Twilight and claim all the copyright for it.
And there’s many more cliches and copies out there that annoy me…
Hence, why, I might stop writing my episodes. What’s the point of trying to get noticed if I’m going to get lost into a very scary ocean of grammar crimes, pixels wearing censored bars, and love triangles?!
Now you can rant about whatever you want! XD **
