I agree on the private links due to code stealing and possible bad reputation due to customers reporting bugs that they might have caused themselves.
I disagree on splitting comment section and reporting comments with links.
I don’t get it. Why don’t you guys simply report the specific comment (that’s what I’ve done)? I’m sure these are not daily occurrences and only once in a while issue.
To the smaller author, no. To the larger author, yes.
To be clear, the issue isn’t that we don’t have time to report the links. Instead:
1) Reported comments look like a red flag to potential customers.
2) Reported comments (the ones we’re talking about) are usually legitimately questions. So we’re essentially silencing the customer’s voice when we report the comment. But most of us care about customer service (that’s why we’re reading the comments in the first place), and so this is largely a customer service issue.
Additionally, it takes human resources because flagged comments must be reviewed by staff which won’t be necessary with private links.
The funny thing of this thread is that we are discussing if it’s useful or not.
No, the most funny thing is we are spending our time on sincere talks while knowing these things intentionally not implemented and will never be taken serious leaving all at the risk of ‘others’. Nice play, have your laugh staffs, you win with all these forum gimmicks, wasting some precious author’s hours here.
There is a community but there is no real connection/real understanding between community and marketplace, shame. May be the marketplaces are fine, but somewhere you guys should write, “the whole site is presented ‘as is’ and don’t expect any changes”.
Could you tell me why that would be a helpful feature or any suggestions on how you think it should work or look?
1. To avoid leaking the source
2. Optional: To maintain others privacy (if cared)
This is example comment [private url obscured] to point how a link can be hidden while managing keep it legible similar to most professional sites doing already.
Already 2-3 years back.
I’m more curious what all this input is going to be used for. Changes coming to the comment system?
^ Nop. More Mods for the forum.
