Hi! Call me Misti. :)





Modly note: Answers here and here.


What can be done about flames (rude / inappropriate reviews)?


I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this or not, but I just received two abusive Anonymous reviews on my story "Kindred Spirits, Bound Souls", and I wonder if there's any way to report them? I deleted them from my story, but I still have the e-mail alerts from them. Is there anything that can be done about the person leaving them, or are we only able to delete the review(s) and they get away with it? I'd appreciate any help with this, these reviews were just uncalled for and disgusting.

I'm afraid there is probably not much what there could be done though.

However I move it to the right place so NAPPA or anybody who is familiar with this can help you smile.gif

Hi! Call me Rachael. :)




Next time it happens, PM a ficmod (me, Mogliecat, Szaranea, Hermione's Twin, Adam, etc - we have a green cap each under our names - or NAPPA) and we'll see if we can get their IP address and ban them.

Well, you could always make the change that you don't want Anonymous reviews...um, at least I think you can. But Rach (Scrivenshaft) was right. Just let one of them know if it happens again. biggrin.gif

Uh, at the risk of sounding like a total n00b to ficmodding, but we can ban them? I can't see reviewer's IPs. Should I be able to?

I think we can - we'd need NAPPA's help though, as I can't see them either.

Rach, also total n00b wink.gif

Hi, banning IPs is really not recommended since most of the ISPs assign their IPs dynamically. Which means if you connect to the Internet you'll be assigned an IP that you keep just as long as you stay online. If you connect next time you'll most likely be assigned a different IP.
In other words: If you ban my IP right now, someone else might not be able to leave a review tomorrow and I am not effected at all then. biggrin.gif

Um, not meaning any disrespect or anything, or wanting to stick my nose in... but... people get these all the time right? I must have had at least one for every fic i've ever written, not just on here, on FF.net as well... surely you should just delete the review and ignore it?

I usually do ignore them, but this was three very hateful reviews within five minutes. I can deal with some of these that tell you they hate your story, they'll never read it again, or worse, but this person used derogatory words and every swear word there is. We shouldn't have to put up with reviewers like this that do it just to harass the author. I don't mind flames, I've had plenty before too, but this one was just really offensive. Thanks to everyone that's responded to my question, by the way, I appreciate that you've taken the time to try and answer it for me!

Hey, there's always idiots. I once had an (anonymous) reviewer telling me how my story sucked on so many levels, and the best they could come up with to offend me is to mention the fact that I happen to live in Austria rolleyes.gif

Ignore 'em
