Short Story Vending Machines


Recommended Posts

My 35USD per year allows me to vote in peer review, whether or not I post in the forums.   I made my case when the Shop24 Vending Machine category was amended - yes, your entry was what I expected, the start of a run of different types of vending machines.

and that's true. but you can see how it is helpful to have feedback prior to the category going to peer review.

If you do not create a discussion in the forum before peer review, everybody will vote Nay because discussion is missing, but if you create a discussion, nobody will participate especially those who will vote Nay

Are waymarkers nice people ???

You spent a lot of time creating this category, it's was an excellent idea and i am really disappointed for you

Peer review is a nasty but necessary experience.  At the least, you now know what to expect next time.  It is difficult to not be emotional after the thrashing one takes in peer review.  Look at it this way, you have now had the full Waymarking experience...almost.

Well sure, but one must ask if it has to be that way. Might we miss out on potentially good categories if we limit our discussion? 
and I wonder also if there's some confusion over the difference between "is this interesting to me" vs "might others find this interesting."

I just want to improve the game in my own way. And some of the commentary did seem unnecessarily aggressive. I just hope we can still get something constructive out of this. Feeling a bit lost though. After getting positive feedback here, only to get a stronger reaction in PR. Scratching my head a bit.

Mr. Boyle stopped just short of trodding upon the rest of his story (possibly the phone rang, quickly engaging him in an entirely unrelated conversation which then diverted his attention from the matter at hand.) - the TRUE WMing experience is that which is engendered by the endless declines supplied by conscientious (really, really, strange... ..., that is a word which I dreamed about last night and still managed to spell correctly on my first try today [last night I didn't]) and objective reviewers who tend to disagree with one's someone more subjective view of a Waymark's acceptability/viability.

 

Take heart in the future, though. After 20k+ WMs I still evoke declines, on rare occasions the result of pushing the envelope, more normally my inability to remember the strict and arcane rules and regulations of particular categories. Too, as the years pass, my inability to consistently hit the correct keyboard keys in the proper sequence can also lead to yet more mandatory edits of a just-submitted Waymark.

 

Don't ever tell me this endeavour/hobby/game isn't a barrel of laughs. I haven't actually posted a WM in several months now, but, like LEE the OKIE, I'm pacing myself. I'll admit that 20k+ did kinda scorch my burners.

Rather than trying to point out "some either seem off the mark"  as a rationalization for the "Deny" votes, you should be wondering why the obvious was not addressed here. I read the entire thread and not once was the issues of, Not permanent, not global in sufficient numbers so there is a  prevalence issue.

Listen. You're not going to come into my thread and call me oblivious

Good move, Wolfen32. Next time you attack someone, at least make an attempt to not misquote that  person.

The original had the word oblivious. I read it as soon as it was posted. When that post was quoted by Wolfen, oblivious was still there. 

The proof is in the time stamp.
