Should there be some sort of ‘code of conduct’ or ‘courtesy’ for what is written on peoples items for sale? This is directed to people who have NOT purchased your item.
For instance when you first upload an item for sale, members will post their thoughts within hours, a great response!
- Some are positive: ‘great design’ ect,
- Some are useful criticism: ‘you should build this’, ‘wish it had a blog page’ etc
- But then some, it would seem are just posted just to deter people from buying your item, or careless thoughts: ‘are you sure this is your work”, “its not unique enough” etc
As a author and a buyer I can see it from both sides… should the more negative comments from non-buyers be sent as private messages rather than posted for all too see?
I’m all for free speech but I think it is useful to remember that each items page is the only avenue for an author has to sell their file so some respect would go a long way.
I’d like to hear your thoughts…
note: this is just a general discussion not about a particular case.
