I've decided its time to post polls and such at my communities to see how participants like/dislike the community and what I can do to change it in the best of my ability.

It was brought to my attention by a participant that they didn't like certain things (glad they pointed it out though so I can work on it!).

Before you take the poll, please take a couple more seconds to read the following:
I know it is annoying to wait for things when there's a deadline. 'Cause if you're like me, you want to know so badly how you did! Trust me, I get it, 'cause I get like that. But, real life sometimes gets in the way. And okay, maybe if it gets in the way I shouldn't do any/so many LIMS, but it's fun for me, and its a relaxing thing to do. So, before the poll, I know ahead that I really need to try and work on the schedule thing and being consistent with it. Moving on. One of the things brought to my attention was the voting polls. They expressed that they were unhappy with how many votes there are. I'll admit, I know that there is a lack of votes sometimes, but if I get tied up, I don't realize that til the last minute and there's no time to post anything for more votes because, well, there's a deadline. And I guess I figure, okay, well, maybe I'll just post it anyway since there's some votes rather than being late. Of course, it's a live and learn type deal. Just another thing I'm going to try to fix. Well, I think that's it, so now the poll.

Hello members. I saw a couple of posts at mod_lims that really got me to thinking about the comments people write when voting. And, then I realized, "wow, I really need to be more strict with having people elaborate more". In the beginning I was, then I started to slack.

Basically, what I'm trying to get at is that starting with the new challenge, I will be very strict with what is acceptable and what's not acceptable as a comment. For both least favorite and favorite comments, you need to be constructive. I figured I'll fair and wait 'til the new challenge.

With least favorite comments, tell them why you think it is "too plain", "poorly cropped and/or colored", or anything. Tell the iconists what you are voting them off in the most elaborate way possible. When the iconists see a negative vote, they want to read the comment for help to improve next time. As for favorite votes, you need to do the same thing. Tell them why its "great coloring/cropping" and such. This helps them just as much as a negative vote, because they know what people like and they can do more of and remember it for next time.

Also, don't be afraid to be simple in terminology. As it said in the post at mod_lims, it's better to speak with simple terms then misuse a term. You don't have to be fancy and "use big words". As long as you get your point across clearly, it's good.

If you're still having trouble, please check the two posts at mod_lims here:
Participant's Perspective and Mod's Perspective
As well as the post at picknchooselims which will be linked to in every voting post HERE
