RE: CRITIQUING V. FLAMING * Flaming: Is not invited. * Critique: Is asked for - so unless a person asks for it, it's not allowed. * Flaming: Saying things such as "you suck," "you're OOC!," or "X wouldn't do that!" * Critique: Providing ways the player could improve and giving examples of how this could work. * Flaming: Insisting what the other person is playing is not "canon" or is somehow "wrong." * Critique: Giving examples of why this is or is not canon while taking into account previous development and in-game circumstances.
