    Post comments have been decreasing in past few months

    Anyone notice they aren't getting the number of comments they had earlier in the year? I used to have daily comments but now...rarely more than 3 a week if that. Not that I'm touting for them. Just curious what others are experiencing.

    Not sure why you would have so many but your post count is pretty high. I mainly post in here so it could be from other forums...

    I think response to the system discourages post comments.

    You can only reply to a post comment by public visitor message or PM. Both are complicated and foster no responses.

    If not rewarded by a response or have a cumbersome way to respond you are discouraged from sending a comment.

    I know I have never determined how to appropriately - or in the language of the day, proportionally - respond to a post comment, even just to say thank you.

    I agree with this. Not sure what the real function of post comment is...plus we are prohibited from posting post comments. Why not just send someone a PM or publicly post as Telly says to get feedback.

    Post comments can be a little wimpy...

    I've never really understood how this works. I've made what I thought were very profound posts, halfway expecting a lot of comments and got none, where other flippant dipshit posts would get tons. I think it's just a roll of the dice and planetary alignment.

    I'll bet some of the things said about 'Telly' in post comments would earn one an infraction or two dozen if posted in the open forums.

    Just a guess, mind you.

    I use post comments when a reply isn't necessary. If it's in depth, or the receiver might want to reply, I'll use PM's.

    what I do is either reply in one of their posts in a thread that we might be posting a good bit in at the moment, or find where their last post was and send a comment reply there

    Fascinating. I don't get daily comments, they tend to come in little cascades every week or two. But then I tend to reply to ideas in threads, where I think it has the greatest possibility of a diverse response.
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    Good post comment.

    Good post question.

    Good idea making a comment about a post publicly so that everyone here can say that they received at least one post comment today.

    Please see your (hidden) post comments.

    Jeepers.

    Why is it a surprise that a couple of our least subtle members find the comment utility pointless or useless? Go figure.

    It's not rocket science. Seth faithfully responds in wholly unrelated threads as long as he can find one of my postings to reply to.

    Occasionally, I'm commenting but not posting, which finally makes him crazy.

    Comments are good ways to carry on side conversations or jokes, and not have to type the basis of the comment, as it is anchored to the post in question.

    The site could make the utility better, but they aren't spending money modifying the package of software they bought that drives the forums, or they aren't going to spend it unless it is broken.

    If we are keeping score, it's a shame post comments aren't counted, as a couple of us post as many or more of them than we do in the threads.

    Re: Post comments have been decreasing in past few months

    I get comments randomly, normally either a response to one of my smart arse responses to a thread, or to a response where I've tried to be a little more open and/or polite. I remember back in the day, when I used to get comments constantly. It was like an alternative universe, posting in the threads and maintaining several separate comment based conversations, as well as private messaging.

    Re: Post comments have been decreasing in past few months

    I've found comments are best for these things:

    * you want to say something pretty quickly that doesn't require a response. "LOL" or laughing smilies are the most common comments I get, and they don't exactly beg for a response.

    * you want to clarify a point without disrupting the flow of the thread. "Wait, did you mean...?"

    * you want to suggest, but not force, an alternate conversation. "Your post reminds me of..."

    * you want to flirt with someone who posted in the thread. "Your post made me pudgy in the drawers."

    * you want to smack-talk someone in the thread to someone else. "Looks like the gargoyle is getting on his pseudo-intellectual soapbox again."

    Most malicious use - sending comments to people on both sides of an ongoing argument, saying how much you agree with them, and how you hope they'll keep after the little weasel, and not let them "win".

    Have I ever done that? Maaaaybe...

    Code of Conduct

    Re: Post comments have been decreasing in past few months

    Since so many of my friends self-deleted or just stopped posting completely, I've noticed that I get fewer comments per post than I used to. I often make the mistake of assuming that this means I'm not a very interesting person, or that I don't have anything of value to contribute to the forums. I have to remind myself occasionally that the amount of comments I receive should never be used as a measure of self-worth.

    The truth is, I shouldn't be surprised at all by how few I receive now. The comment feature exists as an extra avenue to interact with people, and in the past I was very active on the forums. I would log in to post daily, and leave a number of comments in most threads I visited. I would also respond via PM to comments people left on my posts. I put in the effort to interact with people and to get to know them, and they responded in kind. That's how interaction works. I can't just expect to log in once every week or two, make a few posts, and be showered in flirtatious and/or humorous comments, especially when I haven't made the effort to respond to PMs and comments I've received while away.

    Similarly, you can't expect to receive a lot of comments if you don't utilise the feature yourself. Take a look at Lex's list above. When a person's post makes you laugh, or turns you on, or makes you think, or inspires a joke, how often do you leave a comment letting them know? You can't expect to be approached by others if you don't present yourself as an approachable person, and sometimes it helps to break the ice a little with a short quip or a compliment.

    You get out what you put in, basically.

    I think the 'comment ' facility has only really been used by certain members who make numerous 'comments' between themselves and the unexpected departure of some of the prolific posters may account for the decline. Never used it myself prefer posting a response , but have received a few.

    Re: Post comments have been decreasing in past few months

    There are way too many ways to reply. PMs, comments, visitor messages, direct posts on the very thread, e-mails, phone calls, direct approach to the poster, invitation out to dinner... to be honest, sometimes I'm confused which to use.

    But I think it has more to do with JUB traffic.

    Re: Post comments have been decreasing in past few months

    I love getting post comments, so much so that when days and days pass by without receiving new ones I feel very sad Most of the ones that I do receive tend to be from established friends, but occasionally other people will send them. Those occasional commenters can end up commenting more regularly and in time become friends. I do send comments, probably not enough though. I generally send them in order to not derail a thread, especially if I just want to let the recipient know that I like a picture or laughed at something funny they posted. I've also used the comment system to point something out, such as in the porn forum if something from the prohibited content list has been posted. I certainly don’t expect a response, unless I’ve asked a direct question. Trouble is, sometimes I forget what I’ve said and if I get a response I have to rack my brain trying to remember what they are referring to!

    Re: Post comments have been decreasing in past few months

    I haven't gotten any in while. Most of mine were from one guy, who left the forum a couple of months ago.

    Actually there is a technical reason too.
    I'm accessing from the Android app right now which doesn't let me make or read comments.
    Get a little surprise when i hop back on and see comments on my laptop from a week ago that deserve a reply and i haven't seen and responded to. Feel bad for that, sorry to anyone who's noticed the delay.
    Blah blah blah, something enigmatic sounding...
