Quoted from bert




I give a lot of thought to feedback -- it takes time -- and there are sometimes scripts that reflect so poorly on the author that they seem undeserving of that time.




Sob, sob, so that's why you haven't commented on my script, say it isn't so Bert, please! LOL

OK, well that makes me feel crummy haha.

I should have noted that I ALSO have not had time to read all the scripts as of yet.

Most of you would be very surprised to learn how much time goes into keeping up with all the comments and other mod stuff during these "challenges".


Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

Darren, I'm still very confused by your comments, as well as the lack of commentary at other times.

Not sure how this has somehow turned personal with my script.  I don't appreciate that someone let you know which was mine, either...not cool.  But, if you do want this to be personal, so be it.

As we'ce conversed numerous times before, I've read and provided commentary on lots of yuor scripts since you started posting last October.  In that time frame, yuo've commented on ZERO of mine...whether you read any or not, remains to be seen.

You posted 2 OWC scripts this time around, even though a number of people made it clear only 1 should be entered.  So once again, you get 2 reads and reviews from me, and I get ZEDRO from you.

That's not the way it's supposed to work.


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

Quoted from wonkavite


Actually, I've got to chime in on this part of the conversation (out of no-where, I know.)  Personally, I've read about 38 of the scripts.  I've probably reviewed about 30 of them.  There are one or two that I just didn't want to review - if only because I found nothing positive to say about them.  Hey, that's just me, but I'm not comfortable completely slamming a script...even if it deserves it.  (I leave that to Phil.)  ))



As a newbie, i think negative comments can be far more helpful than positive ones (as long as there written in the right way).

I am not going to delete this, Jeff.  At least I don't think so.

But I am going to point out you are starting to monopolize this thread with "personal" business that is better suited for Private Messages.

Please move it there.

And the way this is going, you might not want his feedback anyway.

Bert, Darren started the personal stuff, not me.  I don't care about his feedback, it's just irritating how he expects so much but gives so little..

Agreed. As long as their are specifics. Dream will shred your script, but give you well thought out reasons, things you can use. Screenrider didn't like my entry for this, which is fine, but he gave no further info, so not much help. Someone who takes the time to detail what you did wrong, no matter how brutally they do it, is extremely valuable. I will mention Bert and Phil for giving valuable constructive criticism as well, and obviously there are more.

I don't know any of the authors, so I'm clearing my name right now.  I thought Them that's dead was phil or bert's work, but I could be wrong.  If that script was written by blank i'm retiring from screenwritting, tho. Ha!

It blows my mind the amount of time that goes into so many things and people who are kind of looking off from the parameters of a situation fail to understand until they are in that situation themselves. That goes with every job you can imagine.

Virtual space is like a kind of bizarre quantum thing that pops in and out of existence at random intervals. Yes, God does play dice with the universe, Einstein? But in a good way, eventually.

To manage virtual space is like trying to hold the wind in your fingers.

Hats off to Mods trying to do just that.

Those who read without leaving a comment should not admit that they did so because the script was too bad.
Some that admittedly read all the scripts, commented on most of them and left mine without a comment because it's this bad make me feel very down.

To me it means that the script is so bad that you didn't find the strength to comment.

Quoted from Dreamscale

You posted 2 OWC scripts this time around, even though a number of people made it clear only 1 should be entered.

Multiple entries were allowed. Rick wanted as many as possible to chose from.

I have not read as many as I had hoped at all. Maybe 12 and most of those were read before the writers entered them so none of my comments are here on the boards.

I've also been busy with my daughter breaking her arm and having surgery I've been her private chauffeur and personal assistant. Also been working hard on pre-production of Finders Keepers and like bert said, it takes a long time looking through this threads too. You go to bed and wake up and there's a 100 new posts that has to be looked at and sometimes (quite often) things are getting out of control and things have to get cleaned up.

I was going to read one now, but I'm sitting here typing this instead...

It was me Jeff, sue me. He'd find out in a day or two anyways. I just sent him a PM of what you wrote and that he didn't read it, nor anything you've written. That maybe it would smooth things over if he chimed in on it. My bad.

Fuck it, need a long break from these boards myself after this OWC is over.

Khamanna, one guy hated my script so bad he left the site...  Don't let that bother you. If everyone liked what I wrote I would be scared. I would feel like I had become very bland.

I've read scripts and not commented, but I agree with you that if someone decides not to comment, don't tell the writer you read it.

I often feel if a script sucks monkey fuck that much it's not worth any more of my time.  Granted I still like to let them know they wasted my time and that there is a strong possibility it could happen again.
