    So long as they are 100x100 pixels, I can use them

    Ouch. Yeah, I know the feeling sometimes. I hope things get better for you.

    I call everyone m'dear. Or sweetheart, dear, sweetie, et cetera. It's when I start calling you honey that I'm not exactly trying to be friendly.

    But sure, if it bothers you, fine by me.

    If I may, while I understand you're put off by the fact that I only seem to come to you with corrections, I'm not actually trying to be mean to you. I'm only trying to help you by giving you advice. Some of this advice (like the bit about how to review) is a bit more forced on you because it'd cause problems for other people, but in general, I'm not trying to put you down. I only say this because it seems like you've been a bit defensive in this past conversation.

    You know, I really did know all this all ready.
    If you knew all that, then why didn't you go and practice it? =/ I mean, if you know that you're supposed to write a review in a word processing document and proofread/spell check it and not submit it if you're tired, wouldn't you normally go and do it that way on a frequent basis instead of write up a review loaded with misinformation and misspellings?

    The entire point is it's fine and dandy if you say you know all that, but you still have to actually do it.

    Besides, the proper place for a review of a review shouldn't be in the story thread, PM or VM it to me, because it doesn't need to be cluttering up someone's story
    Actually, it was necessary to post it to the story because otherwise, Haz would make changes based on your advice, which would only load more errors into his narration. As in, a lot of the things I said in that review-to-a-review were actually corrections to what you were saying, like how you don't necessarily have to capitalize "moon" and why the ages are actually fine as they are. If Haz corrected his work to change something that's already correct, it's unnecessary work for him.

    Long story short, that post wasn't just for you, m'dear. It was also to help Haz out.

    That said, rather than tell me you know this and that and the other thing, why not actually go polish up your technique and put what you already know into practice to avoid getting VMs like these? I'm not trying to insult you here or anything. I'm just saying advising authors to add more errors to their work because of a reviewer's own mistakes isn't going to help them.

    okay, but geez, you don't need to VM me that you replied.
    Some reviewers don't go back to threads they've reviewed or read responses from anyone other than the author. Because I don't know if you're the sort who does either, I felt the need to VM you.

    Use the spell checker. A lot of your errors could have actually been picked up easily that way, like "adn" and "teh."

    Quote:
    plus, the fact that I'm really tired right now, as I was when I wrote the review, so that's probably why there's so many misspellings.
    As I've said in the review-to-a-review, write your review in a word processing document, not the reply box. That way, you can save your review, spell check it, proofread easily, and generally go back to it later if you're tired. Never submit a review if you're so tired you can't be completely coherent.

    And I didn't rush the review,
    If you didn't, it shows otherwise, to be blunt. You try to rip apart someone else's grammar, but you don't take the time to proofread and spell check via a word processor's checker. Ergo, you end up sounding a bit hypocritical (again, also bluntly for lack of a better way to put it), so the writer starts to question you.

    Point is, seriously, if you're going to comment on someone else's grammar, you've got to use it correctly in your own post, period. No excuses whatsoever because your correct (or as close to correct as you can get it, anyway) grammar is serving as yet another example to the author. It's like being a teacher who gives his students all kinds of incorrect information. It just doesn't work.

    In short, use a word processor and slow down even more than you probably already have. Alternatively, don't comment on someone else's grammar to avoid making the author think you don't know what you're talking about.

    Yes, I apologize for sounding this blunt, but you've really got to understand that it's easier to gain respect from the writer if you leave a clean review, and if you can get the respect of the writer, you'll be able to get them to see your point more easily than you would otherwise.
