Hey guys! If you can find stories out there that are improperly judged, either for maturity or difficulty, let me know. Each story you find (that I agree with your assessment of) will get you 5 points.

Thanks,
3J

Oh, improper or missed tags count too.

I'm not sure if you'll agree, but "Internets: The Dark Abyss" uses a lot of inappropriate language and is rated 4 on the maturity scale. If it was up to me I'd rate at least a 6, but that's just me.

I just ran through it again and didn't see the aforementioned inappropriate language. Where was it? (Perhaps I played a path where it wasn't present).

Hmm... ironic, because that's the most linear game on the site. At the end, there were a few curses in images, and some of the death links. I found like 3 on the Tourettes Guy page (so linear I don't even know what i clicked. it's after a car race.)

chihuahua also found that my maturity level was low. I think it should be a four at the least instead of a 3 (this is what chihuahua thought) because of the stripper place.

Fixed the maturity on PROM and gave 5 points to Chihuahua.

the length rating for Mommy is way to long. its a seven. ide put it as a six at most.

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago
Nah. The length rating is calculated by a formula.

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago
Like I said: Tags, maturity or difficulty!

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago
It's actually an 8 length though. It's got over 300 pages! You should explore other paths.

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago

I got the "Best ending" but ok, i think its the vast complexity and different pages you can get to that make the formula say its that long, i finished it in like 30minutes. I didnt know that though. thats pretty cool.

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago
Yeah, you finished one ending in thirty minutes, it doesn't matter which ending that is. But you didn't explore the whole game in 30 minutes.

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago
Length doesn't refer to the time it takes to reach an ending, it refers to the total length of the story.

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago

the difficulty for prom should be put at a 4. to get the best ending for all of them and to understand everything isn't exactly super hard, but it is a bit more difficult than a 3.

Blunder Brain Bob Baldwin of Baltimore In: No Escape

It's in the Fantasy adventure section. I believe it's rated 3, yet it contains alcoholic references.

I'd say Tales From the Basement ( http://www.myadventuregame.com/Story/Tales_From_The_Basement.aspx ) is overrated on the maturity level. I've played all the characters, all the options, and it feels like it should be a 5 or so. 

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago
It less extreme than most of endmaster's stories but I think it still warrants a 7. There's a sex scene and it talks about S&M and has excessive swearing.

The Labyrinth of Monyx is a very difficult story to finish due to random deaths and unescapable loops. its difficulty is listed as a four when in fact it should be at least a 7

5 point reward(s)!

I'd say six, but it's still pretty fair.

5 point reward(s)!

Five points to each of you!

Tales from the basement warrants an 8 in my opinion. It has everything your mom never wanted you to see or hear.

I thought JJJ put a "Geared for extremists" tag on it? Sort of needs one for the Anime Addict story alone.

Hers definitely gets in the 7 range in places, but some of her paths are tamer.

5 point reward(s)!

Definately, that's why she takes second as far as how graphic they are goes. I still think the Ebay Escapist is the funniest, but I like random and stupid comedy.

Lol at "Geared for extremists".

Added Geared for Extremists, the highest maturity level is 7, DS66.

I think that Wild Cats should have a lower maturity rating. It only has brief descriptions of violence and a tiny bit of gore. I think 2 would do it. If it were a movie I'd rate it PG.

I'm on gameplaying killing spree, and with that a game killing spree. Haha. My next suggestion is to unpublish Crash Landing. The author hasn't been around since January, and the story's average rating is a 2. You end up in the same paths, with slightly different deaths, and I think there's one success story, but it was obvious that you should have taken that path.

5 point reward(s)!

Play OMS.

The average rating is 3. This one, I think is definitely a little above the cut off line.

Being a bad enough story is grounds for unpublishing, this one just isn't THAT bad.

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago

I understand. I'm not out for blood or anything, I just want to make sure games that are REALLY bad are unpublished, because they don't do much for the community. Crash Landing is on the borderline, I guess. I'll be playing more games today after people stop posting in the Assassin thread, so I'll be on the lookout for maturity ratings, tags, and (hopefully not) games that need unpublishing.

5 point reward(s)!

I want you to read OMS!

Also, don't worry, I'm happy to have you doing this, even if you're not always right, it's totally good for the site.

5 point reward(s)!

Lol! I was trying to get the nonfeatured ones out of the way, but I guess I'll go read OMS. I hope I don't miss important events in Assassin, I want to find that fucker!

Dirty Laundry by Jimson is my next candidate. The story has nothing to it. Yes, it utilizes the AE features, but it's absolutely terrible as a story. Comments?

Length of Forgotten Rose changed to 1, maybe 2. It has less than ten pages!

Length is calculated by a program. I'll take a look at Jimson's game.

Dangit, i accidentaly unsuscribed so I can't comment on the main post anymore.

Anyway, would drowning face-down in a toilet after getting drunk and passing out at a party constitute a maturity level higher than three? If so, that's one of College Romance's endings.

Lol i saw someone ask that in one of the comments, it warrented a laugh.

All right, the Sonic Skim game (or whatever its called) that just got published in the fanfic section has been made without an ending. He says so in the description. Should this be allowed? I mean, Nevermind's story was deleted for being blatantly bad even though she meant it to be bad because thats no excuse, so should this game be unpublished for not being finished, even though he said that it wasn't supposed to be?

5 point reward(s)!

Nah, it's got the demo tag so that's okay.

this should actually go in the Wishing Well, but the reason they wouldn't make an intentionally bad story is because no one would want to read it. You shouldn't write a bad story for the sake of writing a bad story, its disgracing to yourself, as well as cementing your reputation as a troll, seeing as making intentionally bad stories could be seen as even worse than making intentionally bad posts.

Found something. Probably doesn't warrant points, but:

The Gauntlet doesn't have a "Part of a Series" tag, but needs one, as there is the story The Gauntlet II: Returning Home which is the sequel to it, which does have the "Part of a Series" tag already.

I don't know if its anything, but I don't think that the "Cave of Doom" game should be in Fantasy adventure. Seems more like a modern game, or maybe just a "everything else" game. Like I said, don't know if it warrents attention, it just caught my eye.

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago
I've always kind of thought that too. Just because its set in a cave, doesn't make it fantasy. Especially when it features homeless men with bottles of water and wallets, and.... no magic.

O.o

Yeah I know.  Its not like I am bothered by it being in the fantasy section, I just don't really think its fantasy. No big deal.

Ok, this is the last bunch for a while.

Fantasy Adventure > Saving Daniel Ch.1 (This story needs the tags, War, and Part of a series, assuming that one day a sequal will be made)
Fantasy Adventure > Roman (this story needs a War tag)
Fantasy Adventure > robot fight (this story needs to be moved to Sci-Fi)
Fantasy Adventure > Conquest: Chapter I (it has the part of a series tag, but no sequel exist, nor ever will there be.)

Just take this as one entry.

5 point reward(s)!

Just a quick question here, are you searching for random tags or just reading a LOT of stories?

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago
I'm going through ALL of the fantasy adventure stories. Naturally I'm finding errors as I go.

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago
That's 4 entries, but remember that part of series only goes on ONCE there's a sequel so saving daniel shouldn't have one.

5 point reward(s)!

 Sunny's Amazing Adventure should have a humor tag attatched to it. That and it would probably do better under Everything Else or Modern Adventure than Sci-Fi.

Any chance you'll count that as two 5-point suggestions? :)

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago
No, otherwise I have to start counting each different tag that's added as a 5 point reward haha.

5 point reward(s)!

11 years ago

so are any of them being implimented?

5 point reward(s)!

yes

I found a few while reading some stories and looking up tags and things:

Attack of the Grue has a serious tag, and should have a humour one, for sure.

Celestial Lies: Chapter One has the Part of a Series tag, and does not yet have a sequel.

Pushing A Desert Army: The Castle doesn't have the Part of a Series tag, but it should.
