I seem to be missing these ‘rude’ comments somehow… I haven’t come across them yet, thankfully.

Just wanted to express my feelings towards the “nice template, best wishes for sales” comments… I actually don’t have a problem with these. It’s rewarding to see people appreciate your work and I think as a buyer seeking a new look for their website, it’d be useful to know what templates are aesthetically pleasing to others and considered well coded. It’s others that will be viewing their website at the end of the day so it is important to know what they think.

I think that by replying to these comments with constant “Thank you’s” is probably something authors should try to avoid. We should probably just say it once and then leave it. They start to drown out useful comments.

As for receiving emails when comments are posted on your templates… yes please! I’m still supporting this idea =)

I agree with JJenZz, we should know by now that “If you don’t have anything nice to say than don’t say anything at all” :)

Yes it is. Don’t worry. I have a text file where I keep notes of things to discuss with my boss. :)

I think that this has become more common once people started asking for critique in the forums. The important thing to remember is discussions happen in the forums and not on someone’s item page.

I know that I can subscribe to every item’s atom feed, but that’s just silly. In this day and age of facebooks and twitters, I think these types of notifications should become standard. :)

Again, though, I don’t feel that the item pages are being utilized fully with just a simple comments system. There needs to be a mix of communication and usefulness to the other people that visit the page.

Instead of scrolling through pages of comments, there should be “featured questions/answers” at the top, and we should be able to simply remove comments from our item pages if we feel necessary.

It doesn’t help that the comment bubbles are HUGE , even when it’s just a 1/8th of a sentence like “Nice work!” Just a minor design flaw, I think. The comments could be more compact :)

As much as I like seeing my badges, I think a simple “scroll over the avatar pop-up DIV ” would do the trick for those.

But now I’m going way off topic.

Anyway, let’s get notifications! :)

You mean this (replace with your username)? As in, all your items on a single feed, not a separate feed. Maybe I misunderstood your post?

I have no clue who you guys are talking about, how about a username ? Don’t be shy, he/she is not :)

Cheers.

Yeah, that’s better than what I thought, actually, but it’s still silly. :)
