Ok, I guess I agree with you there. He's not particularly BAD, he just lacks a level of creativity, and I've already called him over unlogged IRC. He doesn't have to change if he doesn't want to, and it's not that we don't like him being here, it's just that he can be improving his writing style.Dissension wrote:Again, to avoid misunderstanding, I'm just an observer, I don't have any authority.
I didn't mention that part because it isn't easily interpreted as an "attack." There is a marked difference between saying "There is no way your character could have known such-and-such was going on" and saying "You're unimaginative in what you post and need to be more creative." I feel that the latter is rather subjective and in any case could be handled best via PM and with friendly encouragement and constructive advice, not in public and with (at best) a rather flippant example.
I guess at this point we should ask him if it's ok to give him advice before we criticize anymore.
