Hey Y'all

Awhile back there was a post about the proper way to offer feed back. I thought I saved it but can not find it. If you have it would you please share it.

If not, if you would please take a minute to contribute the ways that you offer feedback. I think it would be of benefit to our new members. I have read a few offerings that were less than helpful recently.

When offering feedback I think we need to keep in mind that for many this is their first attempt at tackling anything like this. There is a fine line between offering positive constructive feedback, and feedback that could possibly make a member to give up before they get started.

Thanks for your time.

P.S. i guess you

I offer feedback in two versions:

1) I make suggestions for changes or explain how I do a specific thing on web design, or

2) I will ask if they are doing the get started training. This means they are so far off base that any constructive criticism would take too long to list.

Hi Tim,

I check the member's profile first... There are things that Jay repeatedly tells us in his webinar but the new members haven't got there yet, so I try to point these things out... And things that I've learned from the experts so far.

If it's a site by an old member... Ultimately conversion is the single most important issue and we should both know that, so I tell them whether I would genuinely buy their product or not, and why.

Otherwise I try my best not to be subjective, unless there's a valid reason for it...

Yes I use the sandwich system too!

That is a great point Ray. I think that checking the profile would be a good thing to do. Thanks for bringing that up! I like the sandwich method also

There is a difference between comments and feedback! I'm talking about the site, I tell my opinion!

Hey Tim,
I noticed the same thing.

The element that we all have to consider is "context".
In many cases I see when members are trying to help others, they will leave the "constructive criticism" on the webpage they are asked to look at. This could go negatively to the website.

This (in my opinion) is the best way:

1. When you look a someone's page, leave a comment that is in reference to the subject or the information that the page is about. Be positive and supportive.

2. When tips or "items that might need correction" either go to the forum from which the request for feedback was made, or PM the Community Member with your thoughts or concerns.

One of the best ways is to preface you comments with "this is my opinion." Always list the good points first and the constructive criticism afterword. Make sure to be supportive as well.

This process has served me well.

Hope this helps Tim.

Greg

There was a blog today about it From what I have seen, people tend to be polite and offer feedback which is frequently useless. I prefer to hear sincere opinion, regardless how harsh it can be.

I understand the difference between the 2 platforms Jovo. I agree with your point of offering the needed feedback to improve the site. But don't you think this can be down in a manner that helps build up instead of tear down?
