View Full Version : Useful - Neutral critique. Is anyone bothers?
04-04-2005, 09:08 PM
Hi, I've been in the forum for few days now.I have posted some photos and have given few critiques of photos I found interesting. My first impressions of the site and the members are pretty good. I don't understand though how the reward system with the stars works, since, as I have noticed, no one seems to bother with checking the useful - neutral buttons. So far all the critiques of other members that I have seen, are all checked as neutral! Please someone explain this to me!

they're actually options given to you, whether you want to mark them as useful or just leave them as neautral
if a critique is marked useful more than once then you should see the appropriate numbers by the side of the critique. if you get your critiques marked as useful 10 times, you get a silver star , 50- gold. you can then click on the star to see the statistics.
similarly for workshops and something else( can't remember right now) you get a box and 2 lines

Critiques will always appear as neutral to you un less you mark it as useful. Which make sense as more than one member can mark a critique as useful. So the useful and neutral button are also there for you to remember if <b>you</b> have marked the critique as useful or not.

As Sohrab said, the buttons you see are for your personal use. So, you don't see what the other members as checked as useful, and others will not see what you've marked usefull as well. If more than one person marked a critique as useful you'll only see a number next to it.

I'd like to add that reviewing the critiques you have received and marking the useful ones useful is a good practise, after all we're here to progress reading what others think of our work, so giving these small acknowledgements to people who took time to write detailed and argumented critiques is IMO a must. Also writing some words back is a well seen habit and will help you develop friendly relationships.
Same applies to workshops, where people invest even more time and energy to help you progress.
