The idiot who started this group had his first story added to a similar kind of group many years ago, and it was the best thing that could have happened.

If your story is here, take it as an opportunity to improve. In other words—get good.

Oh, and don't bother asking for your story to be removed. This place is dead as fuck.

Let's be honest. Calling these stories bad is an insult to bad. There is no word for how much of a waste they are.

Whether the author meant it or not.

It doesn't say "Group Admin" under your name....:fluttershbad:

Do you think some people post not-quiet-good but not-quite-bad stories here hoping that it gets better attention then when its competing with people who claim theirs is already good, which some are but like... still.
Like its not good but when standing next to these it looks good. Or do people just hate getting their stories here? IDK...

396578 That group seems better because it implies self reflection and offers help rather than just being a dumping ground for hurting people's feelings like this one

So someone actually thought it would be ethical to make a group specifically designed to tell people their work is bad? Very nice!

In all seriousness, this is just malicious. Yes one of my stories was put here. Guess what, I don't care about that. I know my stories are kind of weird and probably won't get many fans, I made my peace with that a long time ago. However, it was put here WITHOUT MY PERMISSION!!!

If anyone were to have asked me to put it here, guess what, I woukd have said yes. If anyone was to kindly ask me to out in here I would have had a causal discussion about it and I wouldn't have felt hurt by it. But no, it was just put there and I did not know about it until I accidentally discovered that apparently someone felt it was bad enough to not explain.

That is pure malice! The purpose of criticism is to help someone improve, to bring out potential that is not being used. The respectful thing to do is say this,

"Hey, I really don't want to hurt your feelings but, I'm really sorry to tell you this, I really didn't think your story was very good... I'm sorry to tell you this because I know you probably worked very hard on it and it means a lot to you. I'm part of this group where bad stories can be placed in and people can see them and maybe give you some advice on how to be better. I won't do that though if you say no, and again I'm really sorry if I hurt your feelings..."

Nobody ever said anything bad about the story outside of dislikes, so putting it in a group like this without asking doesn't feel like you want to help, it feels like you just want to give self doubting writers reason to self doubt.

Oh man, why did I never think to look for a group like this before? :D

405900 Oh, the irony!

My fic is on here.

I didnt know satire about badfics was capable of being a badfic.

400253 Look I might be one of the admins, but I'm not the person you should be talking to.

ShadowBlazer our complaint officer or BikerPon3 who has final say in anything group related.

These two are the ones you should ask.
