My first post was on topic. Are we supposed to resubmit our scripts with our real names and contact information on our title page??

Apologies, James.  I missed the question.

Yes, you may resubmit your script with your real name on it.  I'll have the real names on the individual scripts updated over the next few days.

Hello all,

Thanks to those who read Captive, thanks to Rick and thanks to the organizers of the OWC and the simplyscripts site itself.  While I am not considered to be a regular SS'er, I have been around since the last OWC in October.  I have not been as active as I'd have liked since joining, but I'm trying.  I will be giving every one of these scripts a read and review, it's just been a slow going.  I believe I am through all of the first two batches.  I don't want you guys to think I am just a troll on the board, I'm here to participate as much as I can, to learn and possibly even help someone less experienced.  I hope to one day be accepted as a full fledged member, but it appears it can be a tough clique to crack...

I am really looking forward to seeing what Rick does with my story!  It's very exciting!  I've filmed two of my own projects (one that will never see the light of day and one that is currently in post production) but this will be the first time my work is brought to the screen by another director...

I look forward to seeing you all around the boards.  And don't worry if I haven't gotten to your OWC script yet, I've been away this weekend, but starting tomorrow morning (at work of course) I plan to continue reading and reviewing.

Thanks again for everyone's comments and support, they are all extremely appreciated!

Big congrats to ShootingD on a fine performance for a OWC debut.

That was definitely one of my favorites this time around.

Sure am glad I didn't waste time on "Spike and Hike".

Unfortunately, I did waste time on "The Lamb" and "The Maidens", and am going to delete my reviews from those threads.

Yeah -- looking at you "spqr" and "tinkin" and "cap...whatever".  Thanks for playing

Bert?  Huh? Why are you saying you wasted your time on those scripts?   Did the authors not read any scripts?  If that's the case, they should be tarred and publicly feathered.


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

The only people I ever have a problem with are people who read ZERO scripts.

And yeah, it is those guys.

I delete my reviews -- and encourage others to follow suit -- and make absolutely no apologies for it.

Thanks Rick and Pia for the OWC that rocked. It was a lot of fun!

And thanks to everyone who reviewed my script - every review counts, there were a lot of  interesting thoughts that will help me with my rewrite.

And thanks to Don for all the work

Bert,

If it bothers you this much then maybe there should be a mandatory rule implicated in the next OWC for anyone who enters to review a certain number of scripts to be eligible.

Let's just ban them from future OWC's.  Seriously...why not?

It could be someone that signed up under a new name because they didn't want to submit under their usual name.

Nope, no rules like that, as Don doesn't want to run things that way.

I respect that -- so I simply content myself with calling them out, deleting my posts, and that's pretty much the end of it.  Just a little mini-vent.

We have a few every OWC, always will, and there is no way to guard against them.

OK, I thin I read and commented on them all...and yes, that includes the ones I didn't finish, but at least let the author know exactly why.

If I missed anyone, just let me know.

If we abandon the anonymous thing, it will help. Ok, i know its a bit of a 'tradition', from before my time here.
But if we know all the authors and some 'ring-in's aren't reading any other scripts, then we can choose not to read theirs.

We didn't have the anon for the Halloween challenge - can't recall exactly why not - and it wasn't a big deal.
Also, if people know who what wrote from the start, then more regs will get reads - I had to PM a couple of 'senior' regs to read mine( I wanted some extra feedback) and felt like a bit of a bottom feeder.
I was a bit bemused that people were picking their faves when they had only read a handful of scripts.

Anyhow, not trying to stir up trouble and be a prique.

Cheers stevie

There's one reason in particular i like the anonymous posts. You get an honest opinion from board members whom you even consider your friends here.

I kinda like that honesty. read my script as if it were posted by a newbie. Tell me what you really think. Don't hold back.

Although, I did my fair share of PM's this time and found out alot of the writers prior. I still tried to be honest. No favoritism. Just my humble opinon.

James
