Do You Ever Read The Comments Left On Your Articles?

Do You Ever Read The Comments Left On Your <b></b> Articles?

My editorial regarding what people do when their articles are commented on

So Monday night I was sitting back and thinking (highdea) as I was reading comments about my Thor 2 editorial and I was thinking do all CBM users read the comments on their articles? Plenty of people comment on articles and some voice very prominent opinions and others are very nonchalant, but in the sense of probably getting to know your fellow CBMers but you can hear great ideas.

In one of my articles @ScionStorm suggested the sequel to Thor should be called Thor: Journey into Mystery, which sounds way better than Thor 2.

Now aside from that the reason we get News, Scoops and Interviews on CBM is for us to be informed and the comments are just extra. The reason why make Fan Fic, Editorial and Features is for people to see are work and maybe we read the comments, but in the two cases one you have to read over hundreds of comments and in the other cases you may read up to twenty. So in an article like @JoshWilding’s article on UPDATE: First Look at Superman Costume! got 1144 comments, compared to @cbrewer4044’s editorial on Details on Avengers "other" villain! Imo. got 18 comments.

Now CBM contributers may be busy and some of us may just be individuals with not a high status in a social life (nerds) and just have the time to read all of the comments in your articles.

Now me, I read every comment in every article I create and may say something back, and hey maybe you can see how some people appreciate something you posted like @DCMarvelFreshman’s article about The Avengers Teaser from Captain America End Credits
So in short all I’m saying is you can understand others view on things whether it is positive or negative.

Another question I have is the thumbs up, more people link it to Facebook then thumbs up on the article, and do we not appreciate the thumbs up more than the Facebook link.

I've been here for a while, but I don't write many articles. I have noticed that aside from taking the usual castings from the fancast articles and using them for your own. Random comments on main can be the best place to pick up ideas for your articles. A lot of folks have great ideas on who should be in what film and what it should look like.

It's also always great to go back and look because if you have asked a question on how to do something specific on CBM someone may not get to you right away but in a day or two you may find an informative answer. LEEE is always good for that.

Great write-up bro. And thanks for the shoutout.

I do take time out to read comments on my articles, even if it isn't within that hour. I suppose it depends on how busy I am or news-heavy the day is.

But the comments do keep me going, and actually helps determine whether my way of writing is "liked" or "disliked." And I don't even pay attention to the "thumbs" anymore lol

Like right now, I'm sitting bored in my "senior success" class.

I agree with Fresh for me reading the comments of what people think on the subject I am writing on helps me determiner how I can improve possibly on future articles. Great stuff MrAnonymous

I usually try to read the comments on my articles even though I haven't made one in a while. I should change that I had a couple of ideas for fancasts but they are still in the works.

@ MarvelFreshman I always forget about the thumbs up/down feature unless theirs a contest telling us to do it.

usually I don't get TOO many comments on my articles, so I do read them, to know what people think of it.
Nice article dude!

When I write, I write with a purpose, mostly to get my thoughts out. It is nice to publish articles on a comic book site with so many different fans. I feel that it's an honor. Almost makes me feel like I secretly work for the Daily Planet/Bugle.
