Comment on Upcoming changes to kudos

  1. It does, you can also sort by amount of comments, or bookmarks, which is another way to give love to authors. I'm sorry, but this whole thing is a non-issue.

        1. What a wise and helpful contribution by someone without the nerve to log in to say it!

    2. I completely agree! I always sort by bookmarks when searching; not to cheapen kudos, they're great, but bookmarking means you want to remember that story, you want to come back to that story. Kind of like buying a book you've already read from the library. And really, while kudos and bookmarks show love, you could theoritically just write "wtf man" in a comment :D

        "wtf man" without anything else can be perceived as negative, so this is maybe not the best example ;)

        But I completely agree with the rest of cour comment! :)

        1. yeah, i figured, it was actually intended to show that -- like, you don't kudo or bookmark works you don't like, but technically you could leave a comment on something you don't like, though i'm not sure that's a productive use of anyone's time, except if the author specifically asked for criticism (and i'm assuming most authors would delete rude ones anyway.) and there's some lovely discussion going on in the comments sometimes, though i'm not sure how replies are counted :D so it's maybe not the most reliable way of sorting works. if you only want to read. it might come in handy if someone wanted to measure how active each fandom is, like, hits to comments (comments to hits?) ratio :D

            Ah, I misunderstood! I read your first comment in the same vain as all the "when you want to leave more kudos you could just write a comment with 'kudos'/'I like this!' etc. Now, when I re-read it, I realized that wasn't what you meant :D

            And I actually have seen "wtf man" comments...

      2. Glad to see I'm not the only one! I figure also that since bookmarking takes more effort in comparison to kudos, the more people putting in that effort then the more that they like it.
