Is it just me, or has there been a distinct lack of reviews lately.

No, it's not just you. I think we've had less activity the past few months. Although, I've noticed that we've also gotten several new writers and new stories, so maybe things will kick up again soon as people get around to reading everything. Then again, even though reviews are down, the read counts still seem fairly normal as far as I can tell. But what do I know? I haven't had time to do a full study on this.

And who knows? Maybe all the newbies are reading all the oldies, so even though there are reviews, they're on stories we didn't post. Hahaha Or could be that we're just getting way more people who read but then don't take the time to review... (Unfortunately?) there are always plenty of those around!

We'll keep trying to do events like the review-a-thon and other stuff so hopefully we can get more people to participate! I still have a lot of hope that things will pick up again as we continue getting new members

I think one of the problems of being a newbie is that you're reading stories written waaaaaaay back when and you want to review, but you're afraid of looking like a stalker.

I think another problem is that the new authors aren't getting many reviews
either. Why are they going to want to review if no one is reviewing their stories?
I understand not having the time, but like PineappleHead said, the read counts are about the same, so why can't at least some of those people take a little time to review? It doesn't have to be 100% positive, just a review. Anything helps, especially for new
writers.

You are very correct about that, and those of us who have been here (speaking at myself) need to be better about reviewing new stories. Encouragement is what keeps this site alive

I totally agree. In my opinion, it's almost more discouraging to know that the read count is going up, because then all those little doubts creep in: are they not reviewing just because they don't have time? Or is it something about my writing? Is my writing bad and no one wants to tell me? Or is my writing so <insert adjective here> that everyone is just completely apathetic?

As writers---or at least, for me personally---all those tiny insecurities can be hard to get past if you don't have at least one person to tell you to keep going.
