Unhappy So... is encouragement and helpful hints wrong?

Yeah, as people may or may not be aware; I am part of other sites... Keeping away from names, this site was recently updated, and they aquired a review section. Like ours, so, you know. People write reviews on it quite a bit, and there has been good ones, so coming here. I enjoyed the RotM contest, so I brought it over there for them to enjoy. It was all good and fine, I set criteria, pretty much that the review needs to have at least a paragraph explaining stuff to do with the game. What really went wrong was that I got a submission by someone that was a 3 word sentence: "This Game Sucks". Litterally, that was put in the review section, I said that I would not accept it. It failed to meet the simple criteria, so now I had this whole fight a month ago on why this should not be accepted. Some people sided with me, but a lot of others persued on flaming me and saying that it should be accepted. To make that long story short, it sort of blew by, it was not accepted.

The main issue now, is that people keep writing reviews, I don't really want to make this comparison, but they are like KG's old ones, just explaining what the story line is, and how it works. All I've been doing is giving generally supportive tips on how to make it more interesting. I have by no means been saying that any of them were bad, I've been too happy-go-lucky about encouragement. Somehow, this is a bad thing, I have one particular person coming in and saying not to change a thing, I know nothing, just some kid who doesn't know anything about reviewing. To top it all off, I get a PM saying that numerous complaints have been issued about me helping out in reviews, like people are taking offense to my help......... The best part yet is I'm banned if I say one comment relating to a review.

This is a joke, if you need reference to what I've said. Pm me, otherwise this thread will get deleted, and please don't delete it, I've referenced no names publicly.

My main question is: Is it somehow wrong to try and help people write better and encourage them? Have you noticed my tips on reviews here being ban worthy? Please comment on this, I'm broken up about this since I've nearly been on this other site 2 years. It sucks to hear that people are ticked off at something so innocent. Comment please, I need to understand this.

Well, it's just me there, no one else gives each other pointers. So it's not like here, where any time a reviews written, the whole team is there with pointers, it's solely me over there giving pointers and tips.

Well, I can understand how people would take your comments the wrong way... I'm honestly nice in my comments to avoid flaming.

You should know the obvious truth by now.

Vast majority of people = stupid, stubborn asshats.

That's just life for you I guess.

Too me, it doesn't seem worth your trouble with that other site. You shouldn't have to go through all that hassle to critique others reviews if you do it in a honest and nice way.

That other site just sucks, then. The difference is here, we have a solid review team that has standards to join. We don't accept everyone, and we work together to help other people get their reviews up to a decent (not necessarily good) level.

It also helps that here, you have people who have been here for a long time, people whose opinions are respected, making these comments.

Flaming you because you're trying to help? Those people are absolutely retarded.

As for those questions, you know the answers already. Your critique is anything but ban-worthy. If those people can't take any kind of advice then you shouldn't involve with them and let them be. Hopefully someday they will realize that you were right and their behaviour was insanely stupid, but really, that probably won't happen.

I think you should post this thread there, but changing some things obviously.
