I and many others are getting annoyed with the replies of #help-and-feedback:cool-creations.
A lot of the replies to post (who ask for feedback) are really redundant, for example:
Wow, this looks great!
I like this!
And more examples can follow, but you get the point. I and many others are trying to get actual feedback for my posts, these posts take-up space. This is very annoying and it’s just a cheap-shot to get the role of Regular.
How do you think this can be solved, and do any of you have any similar experiences with me?
Please reply below.
Not true. In order to become a Regular, you need to post frequently and successfully in Platform Feedback. Since TL1 users can’t post there anymore, promotions have been paused. These are the only reasons that someone could send a reply like that:
In order to farm likes
In order to encourage somebody while not being able to provide criticism
People do it because of herd mentality. You see someone do something and you repeat it. Simple as that. Only solution I see is to actually try and enforce the “more feedback” with a higher minimum character count.
Everybody should have the right to give feedback on the platform, redundant or not. It still gives the person a ‘boost’, telling them to keep going. Like how people subscribe to other people on YouTube, it builds the YouTuber’s confidence to keep going.
My resolution would be for Roblox (or Discourse - the forum platform) to create a system where (for example) a reply with less than a certain amount of words should be filtered towards the bottom and where a reply with a certain amount of words or more is filtered to the top.
Please don’t be the type of person saying “I look through your post history, and…”
Also, I don’t know how I spammed #resources:community-resources? I think you’re talking about my Movie/America UI? But that wasn’t spam at all, it was UI people could use. Could you send a link, thanks.
I think Cool Creations should be one of the categories that can be lowkey laid back. Of course providing constructive feedback is encouraged but, I honesty don’t mind.
Eh, I don’t understand?
But my main point was that a lot of these posts are redundant and can be earned w/ a like instead of a reply.
The same can be said about any other aspect of the forum. I don’t mind users chucking in your “work looks nice, I like it” every so often. If it’s redundant or doesn’t necessarily add anything to the topic then flag it. Though, I don’t necessarily see a problem with it.
I only went to post an #resources:community-resources twice, one of which was a USA UI, and the other was a movie UI. I went through my post history and didn’t see anything.
Thanks for the other part of your first reply, it helped me understand the situation better.
This isn’t completely true. Not all the posts in #help-and-feedback:cool-creations are posted to get feedback, some are there too to farm likes. I don’t see anything wrong with saying: “Wow, looks beautiful!”, but if you consider them as spam, just flag them and DevRel will decide
I think you have it the other way around. The support categories are not for feedback they are support requests (i.e you need help with something). #help-and-feedback:code-review is indeed just a code feedback category.
