I think he believes that, for short stories, the pay isn't great, even if you put in a lotta effort. ^^; I dunno. I feel like the pay is fair for the work we do (Though I think for stories over 50K, there should be some sort of bonus, and stories over 80K should be another little bonus!). I think part of the shortage, though, is 'cause people would rather be refs, because Refs do tend to get more pay. =X

To be honest, I find the grading way harder that the reffing. It may be because I'm not used reading stories in english(as you may know, I'm not english, nor american, or any nationality where you talk english), maybe because I'm just lazy as hell and can't even get a story for me done.

Well, actually I can, but I doubt I would read many stories.

what was the point of my post then?

Yeah, wondering that too..

Anyway Grading FTW

Well first things first you always capitalise "I" as you talking about yourself =D, like do you capitalise let say, ummm "Luke", its a Proper Noun so is "I", so just remember that.

I might try taking the test myself, but there'll be very less chances that I'll pass

You have it right sort of. What I mean is that its easier to make a good grade for a longer story. Shorter stories obviously have less length, and thats the majority we see, and its pretty hard (for me at least) to make a really good grade on "Jimmy goes to the forest and sees Caterpie" kind of story. :/

I'm officially a grader! I've graded four stories so far today. Is there a limit to the amount you can grade? =3

Either way, you've got one more grader to help with the overflow! =D

lmao, I started the trend.

I sent a PM to Megumi asking if I could take the test and telling her about the lack of graders. That's when she posted telling people to apply.

I am so cool. Fo shizzle.


Currently trying to tackle the oldest stories as they deserve grades the most. Asking for anyone who's been waiting since before the first of August to PM me, plus I've posted in a few threads where I'll edit in the grader later. :P

Oh yeah, because I'm a Grader too, if anyone was wondering. :)

I'm pretty sure pre-hogging that many is not allowed.
You may take dibs on one story at a time, not a lot at the same time, since it's just wrong to say I'll grade it while you're busy doing something else in the mean time.

Fo shizzle? You are always that funny! XD

I've graded five today... Is there a limit to the amount you can grade? =3

I've been bored today and stuck indoors, so I thought I might as well. I'm gonna try and get to slightly older stories as well. It makes sense.

Nope, there's no limit, except what you can handle without getting teary eyes and a headache.

Thanks, DU, for clearing that up. I'm gonna go grading crazy!

More money for me, then.

I'd hardly say that I'm hogging them as they've been left alone for over two weeks. Nobody else seems all that eager to take them, so it's not really hogging.
Plus I've seen other Graders do it.

Either way, the idea of doing that, for me personally is that not only does it constantly remind me that I owe grades for these people and it'll push me to do them faster, but also tells THEM that they can expect a grade soon. And I'm sure they'd like to know this since they've been waiting for their captures for so effing long. >>


Anyways, I'm no newbie to this whole commenting on stories thing, so I think I can handle the whopping three stories I reserved.
