About the Rater's Guild

   The Rater's Guild is not only about having someone you can turn to have your work rated, but to promote the rating system. The rating system may seem over complicated, but it's not. Just get out there and vote.

About the Rating System

   The simplest way to explain it is to say that you need nineteen friends who all vote the same with you on a single piece.
   A more detailed explanation. The rating system was cleverly designed to accommodate 20 people per submission. This means when you cast your vote it counts a one twentieth of the total score. You can vote in whole numbers, 0-9. A list below show what you could rate based on your personal opinion using frantic fan-girl talk.

Why Rating is Important?

   Some of you may be saying rating isn't that important. The truth is that rating is VERY important. If you rate someone's work, it can tell them what the general public (all the other members on Writersco) thinks of their work. Plus, it's a plain common courtesy.


   The Rater's Guild is here to help, not judge or make fun of. If at anytime, you feel your being harassed or mislead, please contact [Ash] to get this sorted out. Some may take the use of a friendly mod, so please save the message and we will take care of it as efficently as possible. Also note that just because someone says that you can do something better, it's not harassment, that's they're job. The rater, not the Rater's guild is responsible for any opinons and advice given during the rating.

Responsibility of the Rater's Guild User

The users responsibilty includes the following:
- To submit in the proper area of this page in the format shown.
- The work must follow ALL rules of Writersco. If the writing is mature, please put this warning up.
- At the bottom of you submission please put one or two sentences that explain what you would like to know about your submission through someone elses eyes.

Responsibility of the Raters

The raters responsibilty includes the following:
- To be kind, courteious and respectful at all times.
- Be poliet in in rating and always helpful.
- When commenting give as much useful advice as possible without undermining the author.
- When writing the comment, mention what score you are giving out of nine and why.
- Always link back to the Rater's Guild in each rating.

2007-10-23 [Ash]: Yep! :P

2007-10-24 [Eloura]: :::^_^:::

2007-10-24 [Ash]: ... I need to finish this page tonight.

2007-10-24 [Eloura]: Ok. I wish you much luck,

2007-10-24 [Ash]: Well, good. 'Cuz I'm done.

2007-10-25 [Eloura]: Sweet! I like this though! Alot. It's going to be helpful.

2007-10-26 [Ash]: :)

2007-11-08 [Kiddalee]: I have a question:
I find that the section entitled "Responsibility of the User" is ambiguous. It sounds like it's talking to any user of WritersCo, not just a user of the Rater's Guild. Maybe "User" should change to "Applicant" or "Submitter" or something?

2007-11-08 [Eloura]: *listens to your question and idea and awaits ash's opinion*

2007-11-08 [Ash]: Does it matter? A lot of members don't s\do things like put genres on their works.

2007-11-08 [Kiddalee]: Well, I'd like you to make sure people know that these rules are specific to the Rater's Guild. This is especially true for requiring the MATURE CONTENT banner. Writers on WC do have to give a visible warning when a piece has mature content, but they don't have to use that banner. Maybe say "Responsibility of the TRG User" or something?

2007-11-09 [Ash]: Alright you convinced me. I'll go change it.

2007-11-09 [Ash]: Kiddalee, you seem pretty active on here, would you like a position?

2007-11-13 [Kiddalee]: I'm still exploring. At this point, I'd rather rate on my own. However, something like this that motivates people to read in here, and helps us all get some crits, is awesome for WC.

2007-11-14 [Ash]: Thanks. Well, if you ever need any of your work rated, I'll always bump it up the top of the list.

2007-11-24 [Kiddalee]: Aww, there's no need to do that.

2007-11-25 [Ash]: It's okay, we don't have any work yet.

2007-12-04 [Eloura]: Ash, do you want me to take this to font yet?

2007-12-08 [Ash]: yeah, go ahead.

2007-12-29 [Eloura]: Imencly

2007-12-29 [Ash]: I dont think that's spelled right. Oh well, I don't judge comments... unless there malicious.

2008-01-18 [Eloura]: Sorry i guess when i sent my reply to that it didn't send ^^' And i think it was i was trying or something like that ^^'

2008-02-10 [Ash]: Eh, we all make spelling errors, it happens.

2008-02-11 [Eloura]: *smiles* A very true thing, spelling mistakes are part of life. Right?

2008-02-18 [Ash]: Part of life defiantly!

2008-02-19 [Eloura]: Agreed! *smiles working through pages, trying to locate the next poem she likes to put in her pages*

2008-02-21 [Ash]: *thumbs up* :P

2008-02-21 [Calann]: I'd submit something for rating, but I'm terrible at defining a genre for most of my works...

2008-02-22 [Eloura]: *smiles* Hmm I don't know how to handle your question, but i do understand what you mean.

2008-02-24 [Ash]: Well, give it two or three, or we can decided the genre for you Calann.

2008-07-18 [Evolution X]: You so did *chuckles and pokes your nose again* no one puts that many exclamation marks without glomping

2008-07-18 [Eloura]: *giggles and say's* Well I don't glomp! *giggles again* Besides i liked your writtings ^^'

2008-07-18 [Ash]: Alright evolution, I'm on the case. *pulls out sherlock holmes out fit* They make good working clothes.

2008-07-18 [Evolution X]: Call me Evo, it's easier to type. Im the fedora and trench coat sort of guy myself... but more towards the Columbo side of it.

2008-07-18 [Ash]: I don't know what you said but I just got the hottest picture of a 1920's detective in my head... he's so pretty...

2008-07-18 [Evolution X]: ................... yeah that'll do it ^^

2008-07-18 [Ash]: Feel free to put up other writings, we never get work around here.

2008-07-18 [Eloura]: *smiles* I kow what you mean ask *giggles* That 1920's detective does ome to mind *smiles* I think i have a poem i woul like you to rate if your up to it ^^'

2008-07-18 [Evolution X]: ummmm.. sure. Not quite as confident with my others but...

2008-07-18 [Eloura]: Go ahead and put them up! You can learn a lot with it *smiles*

2008-07-18 [Ash]: Yep, I'm through at reviewing too.

*Jumps happily* I get to do elouras!

2008-07-18 [Eloura]: *laughs* Why is you happy ^^' *giggles*

2008-07-18 [Ash]: cuz i never get to go through you stuff, there, it's something for you to rate, really short.

2008-07-18 [Evolution X]: well Im not really a reviewer... but I could join if you guys want me looking over your stuff as well?

2008-07-18 [Eloura]: *smiles and nods* Okies ^^'

2008-07-18 [Ash]: Go for it, and El, don't move a story up until the review is in the comments, okay?

2008-07-18 [Eloura]: Ohh ok ^^' sorry

2008-07-18 [Ash]: Evo, If you would like you may join our merry brigade. We kind of just hang out till something happens.

2008-07-18 [Evolution X]: Its ok... ^_^ I'll probably keep you busy anyway

2008-07-18 [Ash]: I will hold you to that...

2008-07-18 [Ash]: It's okay El.

2008-07-18 [Evolution X]: I have a twenty six chapter book I've been writing and a few other chapters. I have other stories and will write something for you if you want ^_^

2008-07-18 [Eloura]: OkiesAsh ^^' And evo we don't bite hard here well not really soo no woories ^^ (it was just so long since i have done a reveiw i had forgot ^^')

2008-07-18 [Ash]: Fine, I have a fifty-one chapter book, but it's confusing as hell unless your as bipolar as i am on on something. We can get it done, but you'd need to only have on chapter up a a time, starting with the first.

2008-07-18 [Ash]: What are you confused about on my ss El? I can clarify if needed.

2008-07-18 [Eloura]: Just the ending then again i may just missed something ^^' Slightly gone right now but i kno i'd love to read your book and bipolar? Hmm *taps lip thinking* Might be able to handle that *smiles*

2008-07-18 [Evolution X]: Yey ^_^ I gots an 8! Happy time! What exactly does "choppy" mean anyway?

2008-07-18 [Ash]: Choppy is this, ex: He grabbed the sword and swung. The beast's head came off. He was very happy.

2008-07-18 [Ash]: Don't take choppy to heart, that's only the basics, we deal in concepts and plot structure.

2008-07-18 [Eloura]: *smiles and nods* Ohh and ash don't worry i wasn't expecting it to be rated high ^^' Though i have another i'd like to put up ^^

2008-07-18 [Evolution X]: Ah, I just wasn't sure what choppy meant; so basically the inability to create free flowing sentances and a basic imagery?

2008-07-18 [Evolution X]: Unless you actually meant the chopping motion... >_> Your example does both.

2008-07-19 [Ash]: That's my dual train of thoughts.

2008-07-19 [Ash]: I have to take of, by my fluffy little writers.

2008-07-19 [Eloura]: *wves bye* Bye our fluffy hyper go lucky leader

2008-07-19 [Evolution X]: Good bye... and why are we all fluffy suddenly?

2008-07-19 [Ash]: Because, it means you're not as hard as sandpaper.

2008-07-19 [Evolution X]: *rubs my beard* Even this fluffy little thing agrees with you

2008-07-19 [Ash]: you are fluffy, it is decided.

2008-07-19 [Evolution X]: good good... but right now I feel more fluffy headed than I'd like.

2008-07-19 [Ash]: It's good for you, trust me.

2008-09-18 [Ash]: Evo has captured you, which means absolutley nothing except the fact that you were finally captured. :P

2009-01-14 [Eloura]: *whimpers* NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU............................................ *sniffles*

2009-01-15 [Ash]: Sadly it's true. I guess Alan was right, writers are extremely lazy.

2009-01-16 [Evolution X]: I'm sorry *sighs softly and hugs you both tight* You should come on Elftown, much more open and we can still talk!

2009-01-18 [Ash]: I dislike Elftown, sorry.

2009-02-11 [Ash]: Poor El... *hands hankee*

2009-02-11 [Evolution X]: *nod nod* T^T
