Good set of tips!

Will add some of my own when I get to that point.

Thanks for putting this together, hits the mark rather well! Going to have to use it on the new site with a link next to the comment box for easy access! Go to Comment

You can do whatever you want! Sounds like a new submission wouldn't hurt at all if it is fleshed out enough. Then using the linkbacks would work perfect.

Ideas would be fine too if you just wanted to throw something out there, but if you are going to take it and spin it, I would do a separate submission and just link them together. Go to Comment

there are two kinds of criticism - constructive and destructive.

Destructive goes like: "Man, that's bad, you're stupid like a brick."
This, uderstandably, just fosters enmity and leads nowhere.

Constructive: "It has flawshere and here, and this is an example of how you could correct them."
This encourages confronting the problem, recieving the aid of one who might have already faced it before. Go to Comment

I agree with Scrasamax, being brief, compact and filled with well executed (good) points is what makes this a good critic guide.

Can't believe I just wrote that.

Anyway glad to see this moved to the citadel. Go to Comment

This is a good post that we all can learn from.

Thank you ScorpionJinx for reminding us to be civil. When you posted this we needed it most, though I dare say we have improved with time.

So... When you read something that you do not approve of and you want to flame, flame, flame the poster: Remember Jinx' words and... don't!

If this article had included tips on what to look for in a good post (and not only what not to say) it might have hit the top score. Without that addition this is still a solid 4.0.

Thank you Jinx. Go to Comment

I was not sure of how this piece was going to be received when I posted it. It is a pleasant surprise to come back several years later and see that people like it. Thank you. It makes coming back to the Citadel easier after being gone so long.



I have missed all of you and look forward to rejoining the community.

Hey, this is a great thread.

I for one have posted my ideas up here specifically for critiquing. I am an adult and can use critisizm to work out the best. I for one do not mind people saying, hey that isn't good. But what I want in return is. I dont like it, but an idea to fix it would be this... or so and so.

Not to go into great detail, but a simple... hey this sounds cool would help.

I agree with this post 100%.

Good job. Go to Comment

Renee_Strife's comment on 2006-01-10 11:26 AM
Not enough Detail.. or maybe the WTF part... not really sure where this would fall under

That is always one thing that normally gets me when I'm browsing ideas or what naught. There can always be a little more added in some areas, but what is also really bloody annoying is posting stuff that doesn't even pertain to what the idea is. Tangents are a big turn off for the rpers of any game I've noticed. I've seen many wonderful ideas go belly up due to this.

So.. yeah.. that's about it from me. Everything else hits the mark in my tired mind and hopefully I'm not repeating anything else that's already been said in a better way than that. Though the lack of sleep makes me unsure..... Go to Comment
