Yes, you are rating scripts that you have already read. Some of the scripts are Blacklist, but most are not.

Did you write Rodham? It's listed as one of the top unmade scripts, FYI.

So are you seeing amateur scripts you've read off queries and giving them ratings?

Do you have to download a script before you can rate it?

Thanks.

Geoff, are you insinuating that I wrote a period drama with a female lead? Aren't there articles and seminars telling unrepped writers to avoid those?

I figured it was a different Korean writer-junior manager duo...glad to know you'd never do something that insane!

You don't have to download a script to rate it. I haven't rated any scripts that I've read off of cold queries, because those types of projects aren't in the database in any numbers yet.

I have no idea if this system is slanted towards loglines. I like that there are legit people involved and it's cheap.
I'm just saying "concept is king" for a reason. A well-executed script with a shitty concept was dead at the starting line. But a poorly-executed script with a great concept at least had a chance.

I mean, it depends on what we're talking about. Are we talking about managers/agents/reps looking for writers or producers/execs looking for scripts? If it's the former, execution matters a lot more. If it's the latter, the buck stops at concept. IMHO.

I went ahead and listed AFTER, my sci-fi Page Awards finalist, with an evaluation (still coming). I decided now's the time, when people will be checking the service out for novelty or to be sure they aren't missing something.

For those who have submitted scripts, I'd be interested to hear what kind of traffic (impressions, downloads) they've gotten so far.

I uploaded my script Wednesday morning. I have 7 impressions, 2 downloads, and 1 rating, but 2-3 impressions and 1 download are from me.
