Reapproving Admin Denied Comments

    Admins seem to deny almost any comment with even just one misspelled work or a bit of poor grammar. Is there any way to reapprove admin denied comments (particularly old ones)?

    I understand wanting the comments in our articles to be of high quality, but I don't personally see a problem with a slight error here and there--that's just par for the course in online communities. And since nonauthor comments obviously stem from people other than us, I doubt minor mistakes will reflect upon us..

    I went through the "denied" list in my "comments" section of "my account" and saw several generally-positive or constructive comments that were probably rejected for slight mistakes, but most are still very readable.

      Once a comment has been denied, I don't think you can go back and change them. Before the team started denying comments, I used to delete the incorrect ones myself. Those errors count against you the same as if you made them and can harm your ranking.

        That's interesting. Things seem different on other platforms, say YouTube, where just about every comment is made in "text talk".

        Again, I very much appreciate proper grammar, but doubt many readers know their comments aren't likely to appear unless they're worded perfectly. Most of my articles would have a lot more comments if I could edit the grammar, like in the Q&A feature, to passing standards.

          You probably are right, but the number of comments you get have nothing to do with the success of your articles.  My highest producing articles have hardly any comments!

    Comments have something to do with success because the content comes up in search--their impact is one reason HP started insisting they not be badly written.

      I appreciate the insight. Like I was telling Timetraveler, I don't think many readers (not to mention authors) are aware of this, so we're losing many comments because we can't edit them.
