I just want to make sure I understand this, what is the difference in a site review and a site comment?

I understand that the site review is the same as saying site feedback. In this case, people give us their opinion about different aspects of our website such as: graphic design, structure, font size, colors, etc.
In Site Comment are people who leave their opinion related to our articles, they appear at the end of each article in wordpress.
I hope I have been clear.

Do we have to have experience in a product before we can offer comment?

Maybe a better way of saying it would be "having experience in using a product".

It is not necessary that you have experience in the subject. Perhaps you have found interesting reading and want to make some kind of questions to the owner of the website.

Hi pasionazul,
Everything you have said is right on point.
But if a person gets disapproved because they don't have experience in the subject or worst, or you are a guy, and wouldn't know a thing about makeup or whatever, then the experience is necessary for the eyes of the one doing the improving or disapproving.
I thought it was about commenting on the post that is written, not based on my experience or my research about the subject.
If I go by the logic "I am disapproved because of lack of experience" then I can't comment on any subject unless I have experience in that subject.
That doesn't make sense. The whole internet is based on people making comments and thoughts on research done by the writer of the post.
If this is the way it is and I hope it isn't this way, then the "site comments" needs filters. It needs to have the option for the person requesting the comments to go something like this, "I only want comments from women, or I only want comments who have experience in the subject matter".
It is not fair for commentators to be disapproved because of lack of experience in using a product or the sex of the commentator.
If those are the rules, then tell us the rules.
Some of this is way too vague.
Thanks, johnny.

Hi jivitaa,
Maybe it's me, but after going to that link, I am still unsure of the difference between a site review and a site comment.

Also, do we have to have experience with a product before we can offer comment on that product?

No, you can do your research and then form an opinion based on that.

Hi merlynmac,
I thought we were commenting on the research done by the writer of the post, not on my research of the subject. If I am commenting on my research of a subject what is the point of commenting on the post I am offering the comment on.
Can't I offer an opinion on the subject and the information presented by the writer of the post from what the writer has written about it in the post?
I don't know about everybody else, I don't have time to research every subject I comment on. I am busy researching my own website and trying comment when and where I can.
I feel like when I write a post, it is my job and responsibility to inform and present the research to the reader in an understandable and informative way. I don't expect the reader to research the subject so they can form a comment or opinion.
Just give me a comment or opinion on the information I researched and presented through my website.
Isn't this the way I build authority about my website/posts by the study and research I put into the post, not the reader.
If I have done my job correctly then the reader will not need to research farther unless they choose to research more into the subject. That is part of the reason we site resources.
Also, if I am going to research a subject, doesn't part of the research coming from reading and I mean really reading the posts and then give a thought-out comment that is helpful and encouraging.
thanks, johnny.

My apologies, I took your question out of context...let me see if I can answer both questions:

I assume by site review you're talking about site feedback? Site feedback is more for just the owner/author of the site. It's for things like "hey I love X but Y will make it better". Comments about layout, content, colors, images and so on.

Site Comments are more to interact with the author, and even other readers, about the content of the page or post. Things like "I never knew I could do that with product X" and "I know you recommend doing the following steps in this order but have you considered doing it this way....". Obviously the comment should be much longer but it should show that you actually read the content and be engaging. Usually questions are a great way to engage with a back and forth. If you're using the Site Comments tool, be sure you're offering the type of comment they requested.

Comments are usually seen by other visitors whereas Feedback is not.

---

As for having to have experience on a product, no. You can make your comment based on the article contents. Things like "I had no idea product X had those additional benefits" or I know you're recommending product X. How does it fit my need for Y?" and so on.

Hi merlynmac,
First, I love you brother and your honest replies. This has nothing to do with feedback.
This is about being disapproved because of sex, lack of experience in a subject or just asking a question about a post. I thought it was about commenting on the post the writer wants comments on.
I understand the concept between feedback and comments.
I know that. I am not talking about feedback and I never was.
What I am talking about is people are doing their best to offer thought-out well-written comments and getting disapproved for things they didn't know they would be disapproved for things like sex, experience or questions.
If we need filters to distinguish on what the post writers want then we need as commentators need to know those distinguishing factors. The way it is set up, we don't have that option as commentators. If a writer of post only wants women to comment or they want only people with experience in that subject, then filter it that way. Don't leave it as a "guessing game". Come on brothers and sisters, this ain't right.
People are getting disapproved because of their sex, lack of experience in the subject, or asking questions.
I have read the rules and guidelines between feedback and comments.
This is not what this is about, feedback versus comments.
What we need is clear and understandable rules on offering and requesting comments regardless of sex, experience, or questions.
Can we not just offer thought-out respect comments without the fear of being politically correct?
Thanks, johnny.

It would be nice if the person marking the request could type in what they're looking for vs choosing from just 4 options.

Hi merlynmac,
I don't know how that would work, but that is a great idea. I should have known you would come up with a straightforward simple solution.
I hope WA works all this out.
For me, I like commenting on topics am I not familiar with. I learn so much this way. Some of these subjects I would probably never know a thing about them if it weren't for offering comments.
I love this part of "offering comments". I just don't want to be punished/disapproved because of "lack of experience" concerning a topic.
From what I have read, it happens often and there are other questionable reasons for disapproval as well.
Thanks for your thoughts.
johnny
