I do then I would have more reviews on my work and not feel like a lonely writer.... Q_Q
When people ask me, why are you so weird, I never know what to say. Then I think, why should I be like this when I can be like ttthhhiiiisss?

It's difficult to say yes or no to that. While it'd be nice it it happened, some members are just reading for fun, and reviewing a piece can ruin it. :P
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.

And sometimes, they can't find anything productive to say. Instead of writing "Great job, keep going!" They keep it blank.

Can't say I blame them, because although the reviewer might be sincere, I'm not sure I would believe such a comment/review. But when the review really needs work, I agree that once read, it should be reviewed :D

I would disagree, since its sometimes hard to review certain works. Sometimes works are just so good all I can do is click like, although I am guilty of avoiding novels due to the sheer size of some of the works. We should get some extra points for reviewing novels.

Definitely can't say no to this question. I think people should review everything that they read; especially if they they think a work is too good to be critiqued. Sometimes writers need to hear the good and the bad and just leaving a review explaining what you liked about their writing would make their day.
