Butt-Kissing Expert Boilerplate

Postby chicklette » Fri Jul 16, 2010 12:52 am

I posted this already in the suggestion for this topic, but here it is again:

"Thanks for editing my article! I wanted to let you know that I [list experience related to topic here], so a lot of this information came from personal experience. Thanks again for your hard work! :D"

It sickens me to write it nearly every time, but when I do, I tend to get no rewrite requests. Smootch, smootch, smootch.

Sheesh, that does not work for me. I was saying things like - Thanks! Have a great weekend! - and they turned on me, I swear.

Now mine just says:


Hello,
Please see Bio for relevant experience. Added references for more information.
Thanks.

And now everything is just sailing on through for over a month when I changed it.
I get thank you's for letting them know about the bio.

Go figure.

You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need.

If writers got together and came up with a few pages of boilerplate CE ass-kissing paragraphs and used them with every article, do you think the CEs would eventually recognize them and get all up in arms about it and feel dissed, as some writers did when they felt like they were getting boilerplate feedback? :?:

Like it did for the CEs, maybe DS could compose a set of boilerplate for us, incorporating the level of respect they would like us to show CEs. Here's one for starters...

I am but a humble scribe who's not worthy to kiss the hem of your garments, so please try not to judge my errors too harshly. For you to use your infinitely superior knowledge of the English language and the world in general to elevate my feeble prose to a level acceptable to your discerning eye is an honor that far exceeds any monetary compensation I may gain. I pray you find this article worthy of passing through the golden gates of DS to publication. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

OK, I gotta go throw up now.

Thanks, Ten! Maybe I should try it out on my next article for DS (whenever that is, unless they kick me out first) and see if I get all 5s on my scorecard! :twisted:

I began with DS in February 2009. I don't recall ever having to cite DS guidelines in writer comments to CEs during '09. It wasn't until this year that I noticed CEs had to be "reminded" of the rules. For you DS long-timer writers, did you have to "remind" CEs of guidelines before this year?
