Since the beginning of days we’ve seen the “nice!” comments. Just noticed a new one/author ‘k’ (europe). I also just noticed two of these type of comments on a new item which doesn’t even work. Not the first time though. And I know it’s been discussed a zilion times. Anyhow, I seriously think that this ‘marketing technique’ actually works. And it’s pretty tempting to test it out, even though most people may frown upon it.
I was wondering, anybody willing to share experience on how effective they have found it to be?

Avatars from authors who comment should not be clickable. Problem solved.

Proposal: every post on files or forum containing the word “nice” must be treated like spam, and so deleted. :P

(this one the first, it contains “nice” once. No! twice!)

I should add: Authors with paws like Shreck can’t post. Never. Wherever. :P

I’ve had experience. You could get away with it by saying stuff like, “I thought that I might buy this file, but I’m gonna think about it a little more. Eh… its a pretty good deal, considering it suits the needs of anyone who might need it. I’ll just wait for some sales, then I’ll have some money in my account.”

If you say that on every thread, and pay heed to what each separate sentence is suggesting, you might be able to get away with it and not have to worry about anyone saying that you weren’t being loyal to you words… still though. I’d be one to see right through its insincerity.

But if you’re willing to try it,

sentence one (I thought that I might buy this file, but I’m gonna think about it a little more.)
explained
It would imply that you would at least have the basic thought of buying the file. Even if you weren’t serious about following through with it.

sentence two
(Eh… its a pretty good deal, considering it suits the needs of anyone who might need it)
explained
Good deal = cheap. anyone who might need it might consider it to suit their needs. Self explanatory.

sentence three
(I’ll just wait for some sales, then I’ll have some money in my account)
Implies exactly what it means. You’re an author who makes decent sales. Inevitably you will acquire some funds from sales. Simple.

I don’t do that stuff all the time unless I’m trying to make it obvious that I’m joking around. And yet, I end up leaving something worth saying still when I leave a comment on an author’s page who’s file is worth commenting on.

Good luck with your campaign on gaining funds and a reputation with the word, ‘annoying’ applied to it. :D

Personally I don’t have anything against the “nice” comments as long as they’re really ment to be “nice” comments. But if someone would post a “nice” comment on my file and it wouldn’t work, I’d be a bit pissed of :)).

+1 but: the name of the author is still visible. and typing activeden.net/user/author_name wouldn’t be too hard :D.

-1 or +1 :D. I can’t make up my mind :D.
