Review Comments

Recently, a query over the comments of a particular review were made in reply to the reviewer. The contributor asked if stating that the submission lacked scope was required, considering it was known to the contributor in advance.

So people like me already know that it's a narrow scope, but may still quite interesting and have values to some people. So you don't need to say "quite a narrow scope" in the comment explicitly :) I'm absolutely fine with a lower score due to that, but it can be done just with the scoring system not by comments.

After considering the comment, and not wishing to upset the contributor, the reply contained:

I understand your suggestion, but as you say, we score the contributions based on a questionnaire, and one of the criteria involves scope. So I would rather mention this to provide other readers with information on the review/reward. For this part of the questionnaire, it's not really a question of 'popularity of topic'.

However, I will try to word reviews more positively in future, as I do appreciate every contribution to the category and don't want to scare anyone away!

We certainly do not want to discourage contributors, but the comments are made for all to see and we wish to make known the good, and the areas which could have dropped the score of a contribution. The contributor then added:

And yes, I understand that. Especially for the first-time contributor, you should better inform them for improvement. Hope you could remember me even if I made another narrow-topic post :) so you could use more positive wording with low score behind the scene. haha. Thanks!

Yes, we will try to do that :)

The Analysis team is available for contact in the utopian-io discord, and also via our blogs. We would like to be able to give every contribution the opportunity to be scored and welcome conversation from potential, or existing contributors that have an idea of a piece of work they are thinking about submitting.
