See, it almost sounds like you're contradicting yourself here. You say:
"For those who don't think reviews are important or a problem, it doesn't apply to them."
Which seems to suggest that people such as myself, who don't care about getting reviews for their work, shouldn't have to leave reviews for other work. Which is fine.
But you contradict yourself with this:
"I think WFG would help itself a lot if it required a new writer to review three stories before theirs got posted"
And then this:
"One solution for the lack of reviews is to get writers to participate, as an exchange for listing."
In other words what you seem to be saying, as far as I understand it, is this:
"If you want your story listed you have to leave reviews."
Which, if that is the case, makes what you are saying a contradiction. You claim that people who don't want or care about getting reviews don't need to worry about reviewing other people's work, yet you also say that anyone who wants to list a story/serial on WFG MUST leave reviews before they can do so.
Which is it? If authors MUST leave reviews to get their work listed on WFG, then how does that NOT affect people like myself, who don't care about whether they get reviews or not?
I mean if I started a new web serial and wanted to list it here, would I be allowed to do so? Or would you insist that under this new scheme I must first leave three reviews for existing stories? If so then that means your proposed system DOES cause problems for and affect people like me, who don't care about reviews.
I might have read what you're saying wrongly, in which case I apologise. But could you please clarify what your suggestion actually is? Because at the moment it sounds contradictory, and I'm still strongly opposed to it. I'm fine with "Leave a review if you want a review", but I'm really not okay with "Leave a review if you want to be allowed to list your fiction here on this site". That one is not a good idea IMO.
