WARNING: The following contain's a rant about YWS overhaul and how frustrated writer can't seem to get a review. You have been warned.

A constant frustration for me is the fact I can't seem to get a review days, even weeks at a time. and I absolutly refuse to beg for a review, my pride simply won't allow it. Ever since this overhaul reviews in my opinion have been at a serious low for some writer's. And what eggs me on even more is the fact that nothing will be restored fully until sometime in febuary, and even then it may take longer. I'm sorry for the rant but I had to vent somewhere.
Whether it be a madman or mastermind, I have played the roles of many. I played the dashing hero, the victim, and evil villain. I am how you treat me, your greatest ally or your worst nightmare.

So I ask you, will you serve in Heaven or Rule in Hell?

Yep... it's just a bit annoying not having any easy way of finding works with 0 or 1 review, or points to encourage reviews, but it was either we get an incomplete site, or we live with 3+ months of hour+ long site crashes. Nate decided to give us a functioning site instead of constantly fixing the database.

I understand where you're coming from, though. Whenever I go out to review the list of works with 0 is rather endless. Why don't you go out and review yourself— get your name out there, so people are more inclined to look at your work? You'll be helping other authors in the same place and maybe help yourself get out of that place, too.
You know you're a writer when you're not alarmed at hearing voices in your head, you can't read a book without analyzing it for plot & characters and you consider something you nearly killed yourself to write the most rewarding.

Guilty as charged.

The best thing to do right now is to review other people's works and to ask them to review you back. That way, you're not begging but rather asking them to repay you with the same favor you gave them.
