What do you want in comments?

After messing up in the no-author no-title post (Okay, I gave him an in-depth analysis and an apology, the case's rested), I think we need a general guideline to help the folks here when we comment. So vote, and let's see.

Personally, I prefer both good and bad points, plot analysis, and chracterization analysis. These are the few which can truely improve my next pieces.

What I don;t need is spam (of course!) and grammar correction. Spam is slightly acceptable, but grammar correction is the one that drive me up the wall the most . I don;t need people nagging and nipping me on my inability to use the right tense when Microsoft Word 2003 do not have a tense checker and when I have ten thousands or more words to type.

I can accept negative critism, provided if they carry some meaning. What I don't need is spam negative critism.

I'd rather the comments to be a part of these forums, so only those with an account can post a comment, hence totally preventing fradulent comments

Impossible. We had tried discuss that problem and sent to GSC, but they seems to have a football helmet on when it comes to this.

From the list I'd choose 'characterisation and feelings'. That could be construed as 'good points' because I think one of the most important things is getting the reader to feel something.
Plot analysis is also important, but one thing I can't stand is someone telling me how they would have done it. Harsh, but in the end, right or wrong, it's my story.

Negative comments does not really affect me, I write what I want to write, and If i am satisfied, then I will be satisfied. The church told those great minds back in the day to stop believing in what they scientifically discovered, but how do we know them today? They stuck to their ideals and beliefs and in turn today, they changed the way our science is seen forever.

I'd have to agree with you Amoki, on the good/bad points analysis, plot analysis, and characterization. My grammar is usually good, and if someone only gives me negative feedback they probably didn't read the story very well, and if it is only good, they're probably being too nice. And of course, I hate spam.

And actually, with the grammar correction, grammar rules are seldom set in stone. If I ever recommended a change (occasionally I do), it is merely a suggestion that might change the feel of that sense/paragraph, and help the author think of that while looking over the rest of the story. Rarely have I ever encountered a "wrong" tense or sentence structure. Lord knows, I've broken those rules many times.

..... i dont get what the problem is. I think its quite simple, here's the answer. Simply stop using the comments section all together (dont even bother looking at them) .Now, create a thread that links to your story, and ask for peoples comments. You have succesfully eliminated the comments section (you dont care, your not using them anyways) and are now using the forums for critisism.

pretty good idea, but unfortunately... no everyone knows that this forum exists. To add that only the most interested writers would investigate ways to look for comments.

that's right. But while this is so, how do you allow those folks who knows nothing about the forum to get honest feedback from good people like me ? (Slap myself for that).
