Activity that is happening on my WEbook submissions.

WEbook update

Well, I’ve been trying hard not to watch my ratings too closely, but I do monitor it at least once a day.  At the current rate, I will break the threshhold in about 2 years (unless they start to accelerate it at some point).

Submission 1 is up 2 rating to 9.  It’s at 22% and someone actually gave it a 5, but a rating of 3 is still dominate.

Submission 2 is up 1 rating to 6.  It has a 5 as well, 4 is still the most ratings.  There was also a 2.  What the…?!  Okay, this is purely based on opinion, not everyone is going to like it, no problem, but why.  When rating something, no matter what you give it, there are always some default reasons you can checkbox to provide feedback.  That’s the point of the system.   There are some default feedback selects, so it takes little to no effort.  If you want to say something else, you are provided a small field to give feedback.  The drive-by rater left a 2, but no feedback, not even the default “Don’t like the idea.”  A 3-year-old can get away with “I don’t like it.”  But an adult?  I don’t care if you don’t like it, tell me why!  Every submission I rate, I provide feedback.  It sometimes takes me longer to do that than read the story.

Submission 3 is up by 1 to 3.  It garnered it’s first 3.

WEbook status

Well, here is the current standing for submissions

Submission 1: 14% – 7 votes (6@ 3*, 1@ 4*)
Submission 2: 80% – 5 votes (1@ 3*, 3@ 4*, 1@ 5*)
Submission 3: 100% – 2 votes (2@ 4*)

Digging through the FAQ’s, you have to get 120 ratings before you can advance to round 2.  At this current rate, it’s be 6 months.  But I’ve already started my submission for round 2, it hads to be between 1000 and 1200 words.  It’s currently at 1060.

My WEbook submission is off to a good start

My first submission to WEbook has garnered 1 rating of 4 and 5 rating at 3.  4’s and 5’s are the most desirable.  At least no one gave me a 2 or a 1.  My second submission, after one rater left a comment, changed a bit in focus.  and so far has garnered 1 rating of 3 (by the same person), 2 at 4 and 1 at 5.  It still has some errors, and a missing word or two, but I’m not going to complain.  My third submission just garnered its first rating, a 4.  Woo hoo!  A good start.  I feel it is definitely the strongest so far.  With the help of a friend through WEbook (he’s rated over 2700 submissions), I took his suggestions seriously and worked them in.  Not everyone of them, but it helped reduce/eliminate clumsy wording.  Unfortunately, the rating system is slow going, but it’s for 5 weeks.
