Hello all! :wave:

We've decided to try something new  and experimental regarding the critique folder. From now on, to receive feedback you must first give feedback. Now don't go panicking and thinking to yourself that you have no clue how to do that. It's quite simple and never fear, you're not expected to give an in-depth critique of a piece of literature.

Some Guidelines:

:bulletblue: What did you like?
:bulletblue: What was your response/feeling towards the piece?
:bulletblue: Grammar Mistakes?
:bulletblue: Any awkward wording that could be written better?

These are just a few things to respond to if you're completely stuck on how to give feedback. You can write whatever you'd like, just please, don't just give feedback that only says you like it. Expand on that. A few words as feedback will not be counted.  
Please also remember to be polite and constructive. This is to help others improve, not to put them down.

The Process:

:bulletblue: You must give two feedbacks to the two pieces before your own.  (Should be the first two when you click on the critiques folder)
:bulletblue: Afterwards, simply link them in your pieces description.
:bulletblue: Submit your piece into the critique folder. We'll then check to make sure you gave feedback and to make sure your feedback counts.  
:bulletblue: You may only submit once per week into the critique folder.

Keep in mind...

:bulletblue: fanficion writers, others may not know about the subject you're writing so please realize that you may not receive the feedback you would like.
:bulletblue: If there is a genre you do not like or are not comfortable giving feedback to, please be patient and wait for one to be submitted that you do like.
:bulletblue: You do not need to participate in this. If you're simply not comfortable giving feedback, check out some of our affiliates who do critiques without you having to give anything in return.  

If all goes well, we may keep this system permanently but while we test it out, we'll tweak things here and there so please note that things are subject to change as we try this out.  

You're also more than welcome to give more than two feedbacks. :D

Please also note that anything currently pending to be submitted into the critique folder will now be rejected. You're welcome to resubmit after giving feedbacks.

Hey, I had a question about the multiple custom boxes. How do you create multiple custom boxes in a group?
