I typically reach my 2DS's text limit on all of my Blogs, although there have been a few exceptions.
(Like my Battle with Dedode, which wasn't featured, simply because the Blog was too short.)

Here is the fucking problem with this though, is that we get a ton of blogs that don't fit these criteria that still get published. Look at Kin No Kokoro's recent blog, which was intentionally poorly made, shorter than a gnat's dick, and had no point, and yet it was featured by Thi500 because it parodies his recent blog.

So what is it? Are we only featuring blogs we like now or are we going to be obnective and feature blogs that are worthy of it? Because TNL is not at all even close to the only guy who does this, and yet we get like a featured blog or two a month that is nothing but BS that was written in a minute.

We don't really have that many people spamming the feature request, it's just him 99% of the time.

But we still get unimaginative, short blogs that require no brainpower to make. So when Kin No Kokoro does it, it is fine, but when TNL does it, it is wrong??

I get that TNL is a dumbass. He is. He is a dumbass kid who makes dumbass blogs because he is stupid. I am not defending him.

But if we are going to deny every blog he makes because they are all short and lazy and bad, then we should be applying those standards to EVERYONE. Just because a more respected member makes a short, lazy, bad blog does not mean it is suddenly feature-worthy.

I don't care about the ratings. I just want people to make decent blogs instead of spamming the damn blog feature requests.

This bump was much needed. Blogs don't have to be 7 paragraphs tho, just a decent length :u

So you feature stories?
Hopefully so.

Yes yes, I do agree with this. Though I may be a hypocrite (look at some of my blogs and you will know why !), I have only made those blogs to show my opinion or explain what have I done for the past. Few. Years

Anyway, this blog. I like it. I see some comments disproving this. But, it's all on opinions! But, in my opinion, this is the truth. Five sentences and seven paragraphs, it's good! I mean, unless some people are just trolling and not intending a blog they made to get featured, or a short review (if the person can't think of what else to say), those requirements should be followed!

I think these "requirements" are why we don't have blogs in the first place.

I don't care if the blog is short as long as the content is good, and I'm not gonna be picky on grammar on spelling either.

It's just a site and these are blogs, I don't expect a formal essay or a multi-page analysis or review.

True.

Usually whether a blog is feature-worthy or not has to do with the 'depending on the situation' determination idea that I'm obsessed with.

If it keeps people's interest and solves what the blog set out to do, then there is no harm in featuring it.

Exactly. That's why I haven't written anything here, I just feel it won't get featured because people set the bar so high that it's not worth my time

You're going on about good grammar and saying "I've played too much RPGs"?
Shame on you.
A correct version of that would be "I've played RPGs too much."

Jokes / patronisation aside, this is a brilliant set of guidelines; +1.

I considered that during the 10 minutes I spent on the comment, lol, but it depends on the context.

That would indeed be correct if she had been playing loads of different RPGs, but if Star just spent weeks on end playing one or two RPGs, it wouldn't fit. ("Way too many RPGs? You only played two!")

Ah, the joy of being way too good at English :3
