How annoying would it be if I added the following at the end of every hub before comments?
Please vote thumbs up or down and rate useful, funny, awesome (or excellent), beautiful.
You really wouldn't have to as many will already vote, and rate articles without being asked to.
I vote hubs up or down on their merit, to be asked by the author to vote, I would automatically vote down regardless of merit.
My reasoning is because so many people read and comment, but not in the same numbers as feedback would indicate vote and rate.
I was thinking it might be a reminder is needed with the caveat that the feedback page is so very useful if the vote/rate tool is being used.
Comments are great, but the new feedback page could be a useful recap tool, but without generating voting and rating it is very hit-and-miss as a useful representation of viewers thoughts.
It would only be mildly annoying, because -- as Jason Cox 83 said -- it's a little redundant.
If you did it through a photo at an end capsule, it may be cute: like a stop sign that says, "Hey, where do you think you're going? Rate."
That's just an idea, though. I'm going to read one of your hubs now. Mwahahaha!
Great question , I have made the sorry mistake of reading somethiing without commenting , even now I'll go back and make sure I do . But , being told I should , uh-uh, not nice..... sorry to all the great ones , I'll make up for it I promise.........
One thing I will not coment on is poliical Agenda's, I do not come here to hear oppinion. And there are too many venomous ones out there..........
It might be a good idea to do so.
A simple reminder doesn't hurt.
It is like telling people to click the order button on a sales page.
I have started an article that had something like it built into the article but it is near the middle of the page. It is a comment that says hey if I am wrong tell me by leaving a comment at the bottom of the page. That is what it is there for.
This tactic might make a few people upset, but that would be the minority i would think.
It might be good to try it on a page or two and see what happens.
I really like the stop sign idea however. That is cleaver.
It would be annoying, I would anyways rate them based on the way it is written, presented and how i feel about it!!
