Well, allow me to broaden you're horizons with this recent addition to
(which, conviently, will be the title of the article when its finished!)
Here are how people get people to comment:
- Outright requesting in your sig... you know who you are 23
Well, this is one method. But, IMO, it is somewhat unsuccessful. Most users will only click a sig-link once, and then not return. So, you've gotten a hit, but not necessarily a comment, and even then it will probably only be followed once...
- Claim that no one even comments
I've done this method twice so far, and it seems to work. I highly suspect, however, that if done to the extreme its effects will diminish, and be disregarded. Use with moderation... or be MODERATED!!
- Keep entries short and to the point *cough!*
This will help generate comments, simply because people will be able to quickly access and reply to the material. This entry, however, probably won't get any replies because it will end up being too long.
- Purposefully include meny slepping misteaks
This will inevitibly piss off the Nazi Ninja Squad, who will then post your insloent ingorance. Granted, again, they will eventually catch on and promptly castrate you. Castration is BAD!!
- Write stuff that provokes response
Pouya's journal is a prime example of this... just read a couple of entries. If you don't laugh, PM me and I'll personally slay you for not being human.
- Just have awesome ideas
While this will not necessarily generate lots of comments, they're often fun reads (and help people make games better!) [wink]
Especially, impressive ones will make (me at least) comment. There's nothing better than to see an awesome work in progress!
- Pose a Question
If you directly ask a question, someone is bound to answer it.
That said, do you guys think this is a half-way decent series? any ways to improve it? ideas for new topics? I'm open for
