Default "Points tomorrow"...

What is the scoop about "Points tomorrow" ???

a) Is it in fact permitted to include such a phrase in a critique?

b) How many people "forget" to get it done?

c) Why leave traces of such phrases hanging around?

;j.

Hi Jay.

a) Is it in fact permitted to include such a phrase in a critique?
No it's not, and you cannot post a critique containing this sentence. Nevertheless, there's plenty of ways to say things differentely and a lot of people do that. I was one of them in the past, then I thought it was completely useless. If I post a positive critique and have no points left to give, it's for me obvious I will come back the day after.

b) How many people "forget" to get it done?
Well, I don't know. But is it very important to be sure to get these points? At the end, the points you'll earn for a positive critique will never be enough to buy sweets after school...

c) Why leave traces of such phrases hanging around?
To my opinion, there's no interest in that, and these phrases are a bit of pollution in the critiques, but they won't prevent me from sleeping well at night.
:o)

Kind regards.

LB.

Hi Loic,
nice answer, enough to agree in all three points.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

What about setting up a different site where points are unlimited? You would then not have to worry about running out of points on a day to day basis, and wouldn't have to worry about remembering where you weren't able to give points the day before.

In fact, you could make the new site even easier to manage by not complicating it with the photography aspect.

Ron.

I don't get the last sentence..

Anyway the answers are given.

a) Not allowed, but done by many and in different ways :)

b) I would not forget it, but for sure, some people will, it happens. Does it really matter? Points are ok, a real critique is way nicer and moves you forward (hopefully).

c) You have to edit the critique in order to give points, just remove the sentence and add the points and everything is clean again, no traces, takes a few seconds more :)

Ron is joking Emiel with his comment about "not complicating it with the photography aspect". Some people seem to get so fixated with the points that they forget what the real purpose of the site is.

AH okay, it was the only option I could think off. A bad joke ;)

There are sites where you can gather points just by being a member :) you don't have to post any photo :D

Cher Loic Bazalgette et al,

You will find that when you read carefully, I have not suggested that points are important, but rather the contrairy.

I find in view of what I understood ToS to suggest it surprising that
a) such promises are made,
b) such promises are left dangling,
c) even when "fulfilled" the clutter/pollution < or evidence > of past promises remains... :-(

ALL of which I personally find useless...
which has nothing to do with how and when I sleep... ;)

So long,
Jay

PS If one write "points tomorrow" en francais, it is not intercepted... :-(

""I don't get the last sentence..""
Ron should have started his own thread; and called it "Attempt at being funny..."

"Anyway the answers are given."
Well sorta... ;)

"a) Not allowed, but done by many and in different ways :) "
Exactly! That has been my observation... :(

"b) I would not forget it, but for sure, some people will, it happens."
Exactly! That has been my observation... :(

"Does it really matter? "
Is "clutter" good? Why bother with a promise if one can't be bothered to follow-up?
Is it a sign of a point-hunter?

"Points are ok, a real critique is way nicer and moves you forward (hopefully)."
AMEN brother!

"c) You have to edit the critique in order to give points, just remove the sentence and add the points and everything is clean again, no traces, takes a few seconds more :) "
Exactly! That has been my observation... ;) And since it only takes a small effort, IF YOU MUST make promises, then why not clean up the clutter later???

I hope that those who read this understand that I would prefer to see meaningful critiques or comments without "debris"... Points are a different subject altogether.

Thanx, Jay
