I give five stars if the story makes me laugh even once! Is that too generous?? Originality and creativity are also very important!

That is correct! That is why you should always give a BWB story five stars!

I generally give out 3-5 stars as I personally dont like getting 1-2 stars.
If it amuses me I give it 3,if it makes me laugh I give it 4-5 and if I think it was a clever idea and an original story I give it 5.

Well that's probably the writer giving themselves 5 stars.

But seriously, should it matter if friends rate each others stories? It's a nice thing to do.

Nothing wrong with crank-starting a story with a 5*.

I'd never star my own story.

I have principles. And if I can just roll a double six, I can have Dorothy Perkins as well.

I'd like to say I have standards, but I've been working in the computer industry so long, I've got too many standards to choose from, and now I cannot decide.

If 42 is the answer, the question is if 24 looks in the mirror, who does she see?

How about "Blue Moon" the Chet Baker version.

Don't you like when he sings?

If it doesn't merit a TR 5*, why be rude?
