Sometimes I feel often tempted to review fan made productions like comics and audio dramas, but I don't because I have to remind myself that often these people are making this stuff their free time, These people aren't getting paid by some big media company they are making this stuff out of love of the subject material whatever that might be. Not to mention these are pretty much up to view for free so it's not like I wasted money if I happened to read a bad fanfic or watched a bad audio drama. I just wasted time.
However that doesn't mean that fan works should be immune to criticism, nothing should be, and often the reason people make fan works is so they can get feedback on their work so they can improve it. Short comments on the fan works seem to be okay no matter what, but is it okay to write full blown reviews of fan made productions?
Course I've written one or two reviews like that in the past, but in those cases the creators of those works were acting noticeably pompous with themselves and their fan work (*COUGH* Double Rainboom *COUGH*).
Though I'm curious about other people's opinions on the matter. Do you guys think it's okay to write full reviews of fan made works wether they be praising or bashing the works in question, or is it best to just limit it to short comments?
