Hmmm. Someone milo said that I hope for greatness out of quantity. The more shit the more shine, the more oysters the more pearls...but hell, it IS a trial.
Look, how hard is it? Make 'em all post 5 valid critiques before ANYTHING else...can't it be automated? It becomes a FEATURE of the site...it would work for me.
There MUST be some who could be great...filter, filter, filter.

Serious is becoming selectively small...of course, that is as it should be. What the hell do we expect?

Fuck off the pratts, tolerate the twats( hmmmm), embrace the triers...or just go free for all...oh, no.That's like every other site!

I have no problem with the five either but you know billy's fondness for instant gratification.

I've been trying for a year and haven't gotten to half-decent yet. Don't ban me.

And I've never written 5 valid critiques.

How about an alternate requirement of 15 smart-ass replies?

They would have to be pretty damn smart-ass.

Why such a high smart-ass requirement? I'm pretty damn sure those first 5 critiques
will hardly be valid ones. Oops, wait, that's a sneaky way of setting the bar.
How long does it take to get up to the level of 'valid' ? 10, 20, 42 ?

'valid'

I think you're spelling that wrong. It's a p, not an l.
It could be worse

Valid in Novice is just pointing out a few specifics of what you think are strong or weak points. One step above "I liked it, good flow." or "This sucks." Even I can do it.

On second thoughts, smartasses don't necessitate ancillary prerequisites.
Any smartass worthy of the Most-Honorable-Pen-of-Pigs should be more than
able to create five smartass replies steeped deeply enough in irony as to
appear to be five pieces of valid criticism.

So, yes, the five-valid-piece statute of the Most-Honorable-Pen-of-Pigs
continues to receive my unwavering endorsement.

What's this about billy's piece?
He thought he lost it a while back, but found he'd been holding it all along.
Maybe it's under his keyboard?
