I recently re-activated my account after a bit more then 12 years of absence from this site. Looking at the statistics of the Woodbury challenge (I am happy to be on the front page, thanks for voting) it strikes me what a low number of comments have been made in total in the challenge.

61 comments in total, by 15 different persons. Also the number of votes is much lower than in the past, but in my view especially the comments are important.

This time I commented on every single image. That might not always be useful or doable but I try to make a decent number of comments each time, just about what I feel or what I notice when looking at the image, sometimes positive, sometimes constructive, sometimes maybe negative. For me this is the purpose of the site, to find out how others are seeing the image, how it comes across, to then find how it could have been improved. With only 27 images in the challenge it does not have to take a long time either.

What about you all? Would you appreciate getting more comments? If so, can you also spend more time commenting?

Best regards,

Willem

I do love giving and receiving comments!

You've commented enough for a ribbon for your profile, Willem!

You and a remarkably large number of folks -- welcome back!

For a while, there seemed to be a large number of significantly negative responses to comments, which discouraged the practice. We will never be able to force people to comment, but perhaps leaving more comments and thanking those who do may help encourage a reversal of that trend.

If you separated wisecracks from comments, I would be in a league of my own.

I've been here about 12 years, so probably joined about the time you faded away.

When I first started, I did a lot of commenting and found that I got the most benefit from commenting on the pics I voted a 5 on. The fantastic or really bad ones were easy to identify why it was so. But the 5's I had to give some serious thought to what did or didn't work.

We've had less activity over the last few years, but most of the be regulars are still around. My commenting now is mostly when an image jogs a memory or inspires Grog to come out.

I do love the rare occasions when I get conflicting comments about some aspect of my entry. ("Would be better without X"/"X" makes the scene").
