lol I thought I'm the only one who thinks like thatSome practical advice that some people need to be aware of. People's impressions are made on the basis of what's displayed in their alerts.
Typically, a reply or quote in the thread is viewed with suspicion by the thread creator unless the person who replies also likes the post. When replying to a thread that you support, it's best to leave a like. You don't want to put people on the defensive when you aren't actually pointing out weaknesses!
I must add that people who reply "FULL SUPPORT!" without actually liking the main post are not typically judged favorably. Yes, there's no escape from judgement. Ever.
Conversely, liking the main post without replying is a common thing to see, but keep in mind that replying to a thread gives the thread attention, which is the best gift you can bestow upon a suggestion, especially when the effort is highly apparent.
I didn't see a part about polls so I'll suggest one:
Try to make polls as concise and as effective as possible. They are, after all, tools for the developers which give the public opinion. That means, having a poll with 8 kinds of yes, 5 kinds of no and 2 kinds of maybe is hardly effective and just clutters your screen. This can be okay for art threads but doesn't fit suggestions.
I, for one, have no problem sharing credit with people who make sprites for my suggestions. Good artists deserve to be recognized.Even at that stage, the person that thought of the initial idea would have to share a lot of credit. Not sure there's much issue with that, as they wouldn't really be making anything financially useful out of a suggestion.
okay I'll say it instead of you thenThere are people that can write an extremely articulate thread, but can't sprite at all. I could be one of them, but I've never really dived into it. Not that I am saying I write very well, either.
Yes, I know. These are the guidelines you should use to accept or reject an idea before it even gets out of your head, and all of this happens before you publish it.Actually it's only about the idea , people will only support the ideas they like . Even if the suggestion contains all of this elements it won't make a disliker of the idea to support it .
