So, I happened to checkout ScriptBook the other day and noticed that all of my scripts had gone back to "analysis in progress".  So, I sent them an email asking if there was a problem with the site. This is the response I got:


Quoted Text
Hi there,

It has been brought to our attention that some writers have been bashing our AI script technology on sites & forums, while using our free technology.

While we welcome constructive criticism, we have zero tolerance for online bashing.

We have decided to no longer provide our free services to this specific group of people, who in our opinion are ruining it for the writing community.

Your name is on this list. Therefore we will no longer analyze your work (it will be shortly removed from the marketplace).

As a company that took time, effort and funds to make our AI script technology freely accessible for screenwriters,  the least one can say is a simple thank you.

Best,

The ScriptBook team


I, of course, asked them to remove all of my scripts immediately --

Just a heads up, if you want to stay on their site, beware that they are perusing these boards to determine who they classify as "bangers" vs. those offering constructive criticism.

I personally would not change a word in the comments I made by about them. I thought they were all fair. It's a very good thing that these folks are AI analysts rather than writers as they would have an aneurysm if they had to deal with the criticism that writers endure.

It also strikes me as somewhat disingenuous that they have no problem using sites like this one to promote their product but are this sensitive to our participant's comments.

Anyway - I kind of feel proud to be blacklisted. It makes me feel like a real writer.

Wow!


Yeah - kind of my reaction especially given their desire to "democratized the marketplace.."

Obviously, I don't give a shit if my scripts are there or not. I do feel sorry for them in a way as they must be young and somewhat naive. When you receive criticism you:

1) Try to determine if it is valid, if so -
2) You improve. If not -
3) You move on and/or try to sway the critics to your side,

That's kind of what we do is writers. As a business, it's a model they should embrace.

I posted Night Steak and didn't say a word. Just experimented with it.

And the analysis on the NIGHT STEAK was: FAMILY, PG 13, DRAMA, and MUSICAL. I do agree it is drama but of the rest, I'm not sure. What do you think Dave was it musical??

As for other promotional sites on this forum, I think we should set some guidelines for them on their promotion agendas.

LOL - Night Steak - The Musical. Love it.

PS - you will probably be banned from their site now

I don't mind been banned. I won't even bother checking. You guys are amazing for a script analysis.

An AI can't feel the dread of being alone in the dark. Or of the subtle emotion of been hungry.  Like the girl rubbing her belly with her hand. These things are to be felt not analyzed. Stories are a vehicle of emotions. You have to feel them.

Wow!

You mean blacklisting users is an option? Why didn't anyone tell me?  

Anyway, I've updated my posting of Anthony's interview with the CEO of ScriptBook.io with a link to this thread.  I think it is important to have multiple views of a site before committing.

Just to make sure, Dave - did they blacklist you for critiquing other users' scripts?

I don't think you can critique other user Scripts. What they didn't like was my comments on this site about their site. So they removed the analysis of my scripts and then my scripts

Well, it is their loss. They lose writers this way.
