Does it bother you if someone is nitpicky in their reviews??  Details jump out at me in things, and I've read a couple of fics here where small details were missed (as an example, in a fic I just read, Jun was described as having brown eyes, rather than green).  It's not enough to detract from the story, but it's something that nags at me.  Would you want to know?? I wouldn't post a review just to say, "Hey, you missed this little detail," and if I were the one writing the fic, I would want to know, but I'm not sure how it would be received from a nonwriter.  Dont Know 

Thanks for reading this, and for the wonderful stories I've read on this site!

Personally, I'm always happy if someone is reading my stuff!   Smile

On a more serious note, though, I usually try to start my critiques with things I liked best about the story and then go into the things I thought could have used improvement. 

If you've got a whole series of typos or other small corrections, you might email the author rather than present a detailed nit-pick in the comment section.

If you can see that the author is actively writing and posting to the archive (stories posted since 2007, preferably some in 2010 or 2011) - and you really like their work otherwise - you could always offer your services as a beta-reader.  Most of us could always use another set of eyes. 

Hope this helps!
