can’t you specify the errors in the comment box?
 

 

also, what does one do about users who use the description for notes? I came across one that reads, “breed with [redacted]”

Reject, with comment "This is not a notepad".

You can, but if it's something really minor (like it's not its or vice versa; or a missing comma), it seems like overkill to reject it. But that is how the system goes.

 

Btw, the link for the image I posted above is here. ;)

Just to give an update, we're both pretty busy today and are squeezing in time to do this. We'll continue to whittle down the list tonight.

Thanks! :)

I did lots of reviewing at various points today. It seems like a long time back that I used to reach the end of the queue each day.

I have been reviewing off and on in between tasks today myself (I have lost track of how many I reviewed lol) I just got home from dinner and still have some home things to finish, but I'll probably be doing this until bed other than that.

Sorry we didn't have the chance to update last week, but we did knock out 100-200 descriptions last week! I'm going to do some more today, and Kaini and I will be doing them in tandem again tomorrow! Our backlog is monstrous, but we're determined to get it down.

Ooh, I'm actually around today! And reading a description every time I finish grading a paper sounds like a good reward-incentive structure for me to knock out the (much-less-interesting) grading.

I have some at home things to do, and my stepdaughter is here currently, so I'll be spending time with her, but after she goes home this evening, I'll likely do some reviewing

As we head into Description Day, our stats are just shy of 5,000 descriptions needing approval. My goal is to knock out hopefully 500 today with @Kaini, and I would love to knock out more. My focus right now is to knock out the users with the most descriptions in their queue.

Update for today: over 200 descriptions down! @Kaini and I managed to do so many that our Users With the Most Descriptions page has refreshed with some new members! @Dirtytabs your descriptions are done!!! Thank you for that journey into your world-building lore! @Kakaru_of_DOOM and @Mathcat I want to get your queues down as well. Just over 4,700 descriptions needing approval now, thank you so much for your help everyone!

 

While Sundays have become Descripdoom days, I will be trying during the week to do better at knocking out descriptions. :)

Well done, both of you! :D Thank you!

*sets out celebratory brownies*

 

Do you also have a list of 'descriptions with the most reviews'?

 

I did get some reviewing done yesterday, though not as much as I'd hoped. Will see how much more I can do later today.

 

ETA:

Holy smokes! I don't think I've ever seen so many reviews on one description. XD

Hey y'all! Can I ask for a judgement call? It's Spoopy Season(tm) and I wrote a creepy dragon description, but when I read it to my partner... Well, I wondered, hmm, is this Too Much? There's nothing in the description guidelines about gore or body horror sort of content, but also, I figured it couldn't hurt to check and be sure that this met community guidelines and was, like, appropriate. ^^;

 

Description in the spoiler below! Trigger warning of dragon body horror and gore.

Spoiler

Wingsnapper's name is earned in bone and ligament, in blood- and scaleshed. Her Scimitar-wing Clan's territory lies at the very edge of the Weyr of Flame's bounds, and like many of her Clan, she dreamed from hatchlinghood of joining Emperor Flameflow's peacekeepers, dragons who patrol the territory ensuring that his laws are kept, tithes are fairly gathered, and those who would disturb the peace are stopped. The role is honorable, well rewarded, a way to earn her meat and protect what she loves, as well.


Wingsnapper rose quickly through the peacekeepers' ranks, known for always catching her prey. The sharp blades tipping her wings are actually her weapon of last resort. Mostly, she uses her small size and shocking speed to slip inside her foes' defenses and break their wings in half. Cleanly, quickly, brutally. At the center.


It's a remarkably efficient way to ground a fleeing dragon, and many simply surrender themselves upon hearing she'd arrived, knowing her name before her face.

It's a tad gruesome but should be okay. I'll be staying out of her way, too. ;)

Hello guys, i'm would really appreciate if you could give your advice about this fresh written description of mine. SHe's intended for a female Oracle Wyrm (egg caought n the jungle) who recently... had a little zombie-accident. The descriptioncould be polished, any help is super appreciated, thanks!!

 

 

Oraclea was a solitary Oracle Wyrm from a secluded and forgotten jungle located in the South of Valkemare. Humidity levels are so high there that even breathing is difficult as meandering mist constantly floats among vegetation. Oraclea loved her isolated home, she knew every swamp, every odd tree and root thet grew there: this was her nesting ground for many years, she lived safe from dangers of the open world. The fateful arrival of humans in the area signed her demise, as they arrogantly took over her territory, building farms, villages and roads over the verdant jungle. Oraclea tried to avoid them, spying them from afar, but humans heard stories about Oracle Wyrms being terrible omens and bringers of misfortune, so they killed her in cold blood.  Oraclea entrusted her last wish to a trustworthy Dragonkeeper to help her to get her revenge: she made her revive with a crystal of life mana, so that her presence will haunt the jungle forever, forbidding any unworthy humans to live there.

Well, first off, you have omen instead of oracle! XD

typos: that - trustworthy - forever

The story itself is good.  Poor dragon having her space taken over like that. :(

Thank you very much! I'm not native English and I'm a bit rusty, too

which "that" is a grammar error?

This one:

every odd tree and root thet grew there: this 

 

... should be that, not thet.
