...that every comment on any item is so ridiculously positive! No matter the quality. Like there is no room for constructive feedback…
Anyone else noticed?
The comment section for each item really isn’t the place for constructive criticism. It’s meant for customers who have questions about the item, not as a forum for critiquing the item.
Yes, I know… and who want’s to be ‘that guy’ right? Still funny…
If i understand you correctly, you want what authors under your works for sale leave comments such as (Bad quality, i don’t like it, this project need improvements)? ... I don’t think so . Most authors leave comments under projects which they really like. It is a very good stimulus for author and of course buyer . If you like to discuss about item, there is special section in forum for it “Item Discussion”
Do you like it? You may leave some comment, I’m sure every author will appreciate it. You don’t like it? Just move on… If you really feel that you need to leave some critique, then you should prefer contacting author through his profile page.
It’s right that between authors, negative comments are not acceptable. This is a competitive marketplace and negative comments or “constructive criticism” from other authors could harm a file’s sales potential. I’m also sure that if it was seen as acceptable, that some unscrupulous users would be tempted to leave negative comments simply to disadvantage the competition.
The right place for constructive criticism is in the Item Feedback section of the forum.
