Default What Makes You Decide to Comment?

I am curious to know what motivates people to leave a comment on someone's card/project.

I realized how much comments on my cards meant to me, so now, when I view a card, I leave a comment! I definitely leave a comment when I have favorited a card...it always puzzles me why people will favorite a card but not leave a comment...oh well!

Comments are a great way to make someone feel encouraged and appreciated for the time and effort they put into their card!

I voted for cards that really WOW me only because you didn't really have a category that fit me. I comment on every card I look at when I have time which is only about 25% of the time that I am in the gallery. So I guess my real answer is I comment when I have time. Love SO MANY cards on here.

I don't have a gallery here yet, but I like to look at others' creations. I leave a note for a creation that catches my eye and/or ones that don't have many comments that are nice. I do admit that if one has tons of comments, I won't bother leaving one, but I might favorite it.

I usually comment on the cards that I click on to view for the most part so I picked those. I do comment quite a bit though.

I always comment on a card I put into favorites, and ones that WOW me. I don't comment on every card I view.

None of the options really applied to me. I comment when I have time, often will make a concerted commenting effort where I will enter the gallery specifically to comment, and usually target my comments to underappreciated cards with less than three comments and/or fewer than 100 views. I also comment on things that catch my eye along the way, and also devote time to leaving comments for folks who've been kind enough to comment on my humble gallery. Lately I've also been trying to target scrapbook pages, which are very underrated on this card-centric site.

So, it's only slightly less complicated than the data collection for my thesis!

I voted "when the mood strikes" because it seemed the best option for how I really decide.

If I am leisurely cruising the gallery I will leave comments on cards that get my attention. I try to leave specific comments (I like the way you angled the layered image vs. nice card).

If I am "purposely" cruising the gallery I am "collecting" favorites for future inspiration. I try to mention these in the weekly FAVORITES week ending thread.

When I do look in My Favorites, I take the time to see if I already left a comment on the particular card and leave if I didn't. Sometimes I delete a bunch of similar cards from My favorites and I try to be sure I left a comment on each card before I do this.

If you are interested in receiving more comments, follow the link in my signature. It's a fun thread!

Happy Crafting!

I voted for *WOW*, but I also leave comments for people I have connected with, and sometimes for people who I can tell are new or have just started a gallery, and sometimes I leave comments just because I like to be an encourager. So I leave comments a lot. When I'm not leaving comments . . . it's because I am crabby (rarely) or because my computer or the site is being wonky (most often the case.)

I voted "when the mood strikes," but truth is, I try to comment on cards posted by people who comment in my gallery (I've found some great galleries that way), on cards in galleries I've bookmarked as really liking, and on cards I find cruising the recent additions. I also comment if I CASE or am inspired by someone's card, if I favorite a card, or if it's linked in a thread I'm reading and I really like it. I comment on the cards in the Christmas Card Challenge since I'm in that, too. I also comment if I see a neglected card in someone's gallery. There's some great stuff that just gets lost in the crowd (which is why I never expect comments myself), but I acknowledge those cards when I find them.

I generally do not comment if there are three pages of comments already because I don't have as much time as I'd like to spend on this site and feel that cards with dozens of comments don't really need any validation from me and my time would be better spent seeking out lonely cards that need some lovin'.

Cool poll as I often wonder what motivates people to comment or favorite something. As you can tell, my motivations result in pretty random posting of comments, LOL!

After I saw a thread where some folks stated that it was rude to view a card or put it in your favorites without commenting on it, for the most part I stopped looking at the galleries and stopped adding my cards here. I decided the whole "number of comments" thing was adversely affecting MY ability to enjoy SCS.

Now, once in a while (insomnia!!) I'll wander in there, but I just don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.

None of the responses fit my "comment style"....I comment when I have the leisure time to do so AND when SCS isn't doing the wonky slow thing. I can't count the number of times I've typed a thoughtful, on-point, really nice comment and it gets lost in cyberspace because the data base is experiencing problems. It makes me think twice and three times before I waste the time to write a comment....

I voted for "when the mood strikes me", but it really is more about time. If I have the time, I like to comment on every card that I can. Usually though, that is not possible.

I try to comment on wow cards that have only a few comments- and if i plan on casing it or i favorited it- however i rarely comment on cards that have pages of comments, even if i favorite it (sorry if that's not PC!). I'll also leave a comment on random viewings if time permits and the site isn't wonky!

I comment on cards that I really like a lot- but I don't always comment on those. Usually I am sneaking online in between chores (I spent the money for my maid on stamps!!) and I don't always have time. But if a card I look at really strikes me and it doesn't already have a gazillion comments I make a point to comment on it. If it already has a lot then I don't necessarily take the time because the artist probably already knows it is great. But that could be a wrong attitude as well- and I might work on that. (when I have time in between chores!)

That's a little sad- the people who are obsessed with numbers need to get over it- we are all busy and IF we comment just be glad. I may open a card to get the detail and then just not like it and I can't lie that it's nice if it doesn't appeal to me. I do think if someone favorites my card-they must have liked it, take it for what it is.

And Joan it would be even sadder if you stopped sharing with us. You have some great work in that gallery.

I too, voted for the WOW category, which may be the first cards I comment on, but sometimes I see a cool card that hasn't gotten much attention and I try to leave a comment for them. I find there's almost always something interesing about everyone's cards, but I just can't take the time for constant comments.

Sometimes I don't have time to comment, I just have time to browse the goodies. And other times what I want to say has already been said numerous times and I don't want to look like a dork 'cause I couldn't think of something original.

I comment on cards that Wow me! So if you get a comment from me, I REALLY mean it. Sometimes I don't comment on a card I love simply because it already has 7 or 8 pages of comments and I am short on time. I do treasure every comment I receive in my small gallery, but I actually appreciate the favorites even more! That, to me, really shows that someone likes it!

Wow! I love reading everyone replies so far! I decided to start this whole thread today after noticing a picture in the "New additions" today that had 150 views, but no comments. That seemed so sad to me, & it got me wondering why all those people would look & none commented. So... vote on... I know I'm not the only curious about comments!

I checked cards that really wow me, but it is really for the most part cards that I favorite to find them again. I could never find the time to comment on each card I view, as a relative newbie I need to take a closer look to see if I understand what techniques were used, or which background, etc. I can only find this out by viewing the recipe as well as the card. I hope posters would take any attention as a compliment! And some day I hope to share the knowledge I have gained in the hours I have perused the galleries!

I, too, am one who makes certain to comment on a card that has few or no comments. Sometimes I search out cards with no comments and make sure to leave something.

Otherwise if the card is really great I'll leave a comment.

When I first came on SCS I rarely ever left a comment, mostly cause I didn't know what to say. But since I have started a gallery here and understand how much a comment can mean to everyone I try to comment as much as I can. Like a lot of others, if someone has a lot of comments I ususally don't leave one just because I will have nothing else to say about the card, or if the site is to slow. I try to comment as much as I can! Great thread!

I used to just leave comments on cards that "wowed" me, but as I've been on SCS longer, I realize how meaningful it is to all stampers to be acknowledged and acclaimed so now I try to leave comments on cards that may have been skipped over by other folks.

i comment when I have the energy. I'm not really a well person and sometimes I just click with the mouse and enjoy the cards. I don't have the tech ability to post myself. I'll try to be more diligent about commenting on my appreciation of those amazing cards. I rarely see a card I don't like at all!

Me too! I try to look for those who don't have many comments and may be overlooked. But, I'll leave comments on wow cards too, especially if there aren't many listed.

I have to say though that I don't leave comments on those cards that already have 40+ comments. I figure (and hope) they know how great their card is with that many comments. Then I can spend my engery and the little time I have on the ones that may be under commented.

I try to make sure that I leave comments for all the cards I put in my Favorites. I will comment on cards that really WOW me, but I'm sometimes on the lookout for cards that don't have any comments. I think it's important to encourage people.

I voted 'I leave a comment for every card I view' and that is true for the most part! Even if it doesn't wow me, something about it caught my attention and is worthwhile commenting on! Occasionally, I can't come up with a single thing to say and I just back out of it, but rarely! I love recieving comments and therefore I feel it is only fair that I would take the time to leave some. I am on dial-up, so when I say 'take the time' , I really mean it!! lol! I guess that's why I leave a comment for every one I view because it's a commitment just to look at one...I might as well say something while I'm there! I am constantly inspired by the people on this site and I like to share that with them!

I didn't see the option I would vote for, "There were already comments which I would just be repeating, and/or time was really short for me."

I have to say that after the forum postings that people were upset they didn't get comments AND favorited (I kind of think being favorited is a comment in itself, isn't it? as in "I like your card enough to keep looking at it easily") I've held back from looking at galleries at all for the past few days.

I always leave a comment if there are less than three comments anyway.

Since I joined SCS in 2004, I've checked out the today's additions every morning. Not too long ago there were about 7-8 (48 per) of new additions each morning to view--now there are 19-20. Can you believe it? Now just viewing the uploads takes real time, so I usually reserve my commenting for the weekend mornings when I have more time. On other days, the favorited feature lets stampers know I liked their cards! I try to comment on the underappreciated mostly, or cards that have something unique or unusual that caught my eye. And I try to make my comments substantive or particular, and not just "cute card".

The 7-8 and 19-20 refer to PAGES of uploads, in case that wasn't clear in the above post

I had to clear up that I was crying sour grapes with the favoriting thing. I have had cards that have been favorited with absolutely no comments before. That is just a little odd to me, but I'm not losing sleep over it!! Everyone is different, even in their commenting style. I was just making an observation. But, I agree, favoriting is a form of comment in and of itself.

I have only been stamping for about a year, and I am still learning a lot, so I guess I like the encouragement of a comment to let me know what people liked about the card. What does everyone else like about comments?
