Default CC

Note: I wasn't really sure where to put this... hope this is okay. c:

I was just browsing around the mainsite and made a comment with CC (constructive criticism, for any new to KidPub terms). The writer said that he really appreciated it. However, I've made a few comments with CC before and writers haven't exactly appreciated it. So, I was thinking that maybe us KPers could honestly say if we wanted CC or not.

To be honest, I always say 'Please give CC!' but my pride/arrogance is too much, and sometimes when the CC does come, I unintentionally get... annoyed, to put it lightly. I'm not sure if anyone else relates (please tell me I'm not the only arrogant little thing out there), but I would like to suggest that KPers include in on their post on the mainsite if they really do want CC.

This can be easily debated (*braces self for oncoming attacks*), but I'd just like to put this out there. What I mean is: when you post something on the NSP, honestly say if you want CC or not. I certainly would comment more with CC, as the only reason I hold back is because I'm not sure if I should give any or not (I don't really want to be hated). Maybeľ probably not, but there's a slight chanceľ this will help the 'comment problem', as some put it.

Sounds like a good idea! I like this- but the only problem is that not all so-called "CC" is constructive, so I also think another idea that goes with this is commenters' evaluating their own comments, to see if they got their point across in the tone they wanted.
I used to make comments that came across as super annoying or mean, and I try not to be that way when I comment now.
I love this thread and I hope it lives for a long time!
What do you guys think? (:

Yup. That's happened to me before as well. XD Now I usually just ask before I give any CC, unless they already specifically say they do/don't want any.

I like getting CC, as long as it is actually, as MandM mentioned, constructive. Sometimes I feel like the comments people leave are just unnecessary and pointless. Although I will admit I'm just much too sensitive when it comes to CC sometimes, and I need to work on that.
