Do you think there should be gold stars for comments?

Sometimes the comments take on a life of their own. They can make a blog post...in fact sometimes the comments are  better than the actual post.

Today I got one of those comments from Chris Ann Cleland Chris Ann Cleland  but of course she gave the credit to Dick Greenberg

 

 Here was that feature worthy comment  in response to Voila You Have a Blog

 

 

 

"If it's important enough to do,

it's important enough to do wrong!"  

 

stars

 

 

Comments tell about a member. They tell when there is no thought put into the comment, maybe it has not even been read. 

And sometimes the comments reveal more than a person's own post. 

 

Comments are usually made quickly without a lot of thought.

Personalities are in these comments. 

When looking for a member to refer, I look for the pattern of their comments. Some write wonderful comments that would make wonderful stand alone posts. When I see that...I make that suggestion.

Should we consider  some kind of point award or other recognition for creative comments?

What do you think?

Well, this post has me questioning the efficacy and eloquency of my own comment. However, inspired by the comment that inspired this post, I will act now rather than delay commenting in my quest for the perfect comment.  I think gold stars would be great, or maybe even a "you nailed it" button. 

PS. Did you copywright your own gold star image?!?

I believe comments should have value and meaning to the author that is pertinent to the content written. If I like what I read, I do my best to let the author know with sincerity. I don't believe in being rude.

Gold stars for comments is a great idea!

Good morning, Margaret. I love this idea... often the comments I see on posts are more interesting than the post itself.

I agree with comment #3 which was left by Patricia Feager . . .And, by the way, she leaves some of the most heartfelt, well thought-out comments on ActiveRain.

Margaret leaving comments back and forth gives us all a chance to really get to know each other well. It also gives us a look into how others run their business and life! Make those comments - gold star ready!

I am fine with Chris taking a gold star for that comment. We do try too hard to be perfect but sometimes it's more important to just do something at all.

 

 In reference to comments taking on a life of their own, that used to happen here a lot especially back in the days of Blog Jacking.

Nina Hollander There are posts that the comments are better. Maybe someone could start a group for featured comments.
