This is an amazing feature here to be able to share and receive feedback! The 2 for 1 credit is awesome as well! Very clever and community orient driven! We need each other to succeed! I have a tendency to do everything on my own and am just wired that way so this will be great for me to stop and ask for opinions aka help! Kinda blown away by this setup!

Hi Everyone! I love the idea of giving and getting feedback as I start to build my site! However, do you recommend we finish the training before we post our website? I just published my first article but my website has not been updated with visuals or really personalized in any way yet because I have not gotten to that part of the training yet. I am curious if I should wait to post until I get a little further along or ask for feedback on my article now before adding the visuals?

In my case, I waited till I had more content and products before I requested feedback and the reason was that I wanted to gain more knowledge to give a better feedback to other members and also, I would get feedback on more than just one thing on my site.

I think giving and receiving feedback are beneficial and also learning tools for both parties in many ways. The only real consternation I am having is that at this point in the training process, those of us at this point have a home page, privacy page and first template page of information, no images, no affiliate links. It seems there is not much to review except to say, you don't have anything in your page. I think the only thing to be reviewed is the direction in the first page. That's obviously something I or anyone else has probably been mulling on a LOT. So I suppose another opinion can't hurt, but I think this exercise or introduction would be best served later. That is just my observation. Jolynn

The training has been GREAT! But, after going through the SiteFeedback video, following the directcions, I went through the process to give feeback on another member's website. I spent over an hour going through a what is a very comprehensive website with many pages. I wrote a thoughtful review. Then, I find I need a Gravatar email address to post the review.
Trying to complete the Gravatr setup, I lost my review and, of course, the SiteFeedBack randomizer gave me a different website to review.
It would have been helpful to see the Gravatar setup video and completed that component before spending time looking at a big website and writing a review. I am frustrated becuase I lost over two hours on this and it could have been avoided.
Not upset as the training has been going well, just frustrated.

I'm happy to hear I'm not the only one who lost information and yes, it was frustrating.
Now, I just learned from you to watch the gravatar video first..

Thanks,
Michael

I just finished my first review of someone else's website page. I have editing experience, and it is second nature to me to offer editorial comments and suggestions for making the content easier to read and understand. That was my job.

After I finished my reivew, I noticed other reviews that I hadn't seen before. They were much shorter and less detailed. I am wondering if what I wrote was OK. Did I go overboard and do more than was desired? The last thing I want to do is insult anyone or upset them by offering editorial comments if that is not what is expected or wanted here.

Is my perfectionism causing me to do more than is expected or desired and putting people off?

Your comments, please!

If your comments were accepted by Site comments then you did okay, they were original. The owner of the website is now notified and they have the option of accepting or not your comments, before they are published.

Thanks, Harvey. Didn't know about that. It was probably mentioned on the video, but it was late when I watched it, and I probably didn't remember it.

Thanks, Harvey. Just want to provide the kind of feedback they're needing, that's all. Appreciate your input. Haven't heard anything back, so guess it was OK. Carol

I could really use some feedback on my post however I realize there is a lot I would like to edit, add, and change location of one paragraph that needs to be the first one. I need some help on how to replace the edit to replace the original, the simple tech buttons to hit. Wow that sounds so pathetic!

I am not sure I follow you Cynthia. Are you trying to edit a post already published or on that is in draft for? Also are you working on a computer, laptop or mobile unit? To change a paragraph on a computer or laptop you need to block out the paragraph by holding down the shift key and moving the cursor with an arrow key. Once you have the paragraph blocked out then right click and you should get a pop up that has copy, cut and a few others as a tabs. Click on cut. Then place the cursor where you want to insert the paragraph and Right click again and another pop up should appear with paste as a tab, click on that.

Thank you for replying unfortunately I accidently pushed the publish key instead of save, also after you mentioned it I probably have to be on a computer/ laptop I understand about cut n paste unfortunately again I'm using my mobile phone. I'll have to go to a real computer! Right?

Hello Cynthia, you can still edit the post and update it. I use an iPad and have had to learn how to cut and paste on it but have not tried it on a smartphone. I am sure there is a way, but I have not tried it. A desk computer or laptop would be easier.

Hi, Harvey. Thought you might like to know the outcome of my stewing about the site review I did. Received a response from the author, who was very happy to receive the proofreading comments. Whew! Next time I'll know to look for the type of review they're looking for, but glad my editing efforts were appreciated, and not offensive to him. Carol

Hi, Cynthia. I'm not sure what it is you're looking for, but I would be happy to take a look at your site and do a proofreading/edit for you if you would like me to. Carol

Il really appreciate that! I'm more concerned about the whole entire site from the beginning I'm just now realizing and understanding how this works I have a lot of content and subject matter I'd like to cover however the beginning I was lost and I'm not sure how to go back and edit what has already been published I really need to do it over from the beginning, can I do that? Or

I am still fairly new, and there are others who can probably give you a better answer. I know what you mean about being lost at first. It took me forever to type my first post because I was used to Microsoft Word instead of Wordpress, and some things are different. It kept changing the size of my type without my permission!

I have some editing I need to do on my published site as well. I had difficulty making my menu go where I wanted it to, and I still have work to do on that.

I believe you can edit your published material by clicking on the SiteRubix button, then the Site Content button. On that page you will see a large green button on the upper right corner of your page that says"Published Edit Here". Click on that, and it will take you to your page to edit.

Hope this helps, Cynthia.

Carol

So am I right about mobile phones can only let you go so far until you need a computer?

Thank you for your input, I'm not used to typing on the phone now I can text that's a whole different story!

I think those of us who are “Baby Boomers,” or the next genration, are over blown by the speed that technology is moving and intergrating. I still remember using a manual typewriter. Now I am trying to type on my mobile telephone. Incredible but very interesting. It takes time but I am sure in a few years you will look back and wonder what all the fuss was about.

Your right, I'm surprised by all the things that a phone can do and still trying to catch up. I want my desktop or typewriter back. Lol I know I will appear really old when I say I" remember when ..." We had one phone in the kitchen and it was rotary style! Lol

My website is pitiful at best but part of the reason is because I suck at writing and because its a bit of a dummie run for the websites moving forward. I for one would actually appreciate feedback from an exspert

I'm not sure what you're looking for here, Kevin. My editing experience was for Ken Blanchard's workbooks based on his books. I can help you with your English grammar, spelling, and possibly some wordsmithing, but I don't know enough about websites to know what to tell you to edit or improve. I'm too new for that. Suggest you post your request for help to the community. There are a lot of people in it that have published very good websites that are making money who can help you a lot more than I could.

On your profile page, scroll down underneath the pics of your network, the people you are following. You will see a button labeled "New Posts". Click on that, and it'll take you to a screen where you can ask your question to the whole community. Good luck. Carol
