The Commenter System is supported through a group of "Commenters", those who have offered to give feedback so that others can directly directly request a constructive comment.


How To Request a Comment

Find a commenter from the list below and send them a note with subject, "Project Comment - Comment Please!", linking the deviation(s) you would like comments on. Feel free to include any questions that may help the commenter in their comments!

Each Commenter is listed under the category of art they are wiling to comment on, along with -
  • The amount of deviations, per week, that each deviant can send.
  • Their specialities, exceptions, and preferences on the art they will critique.
  • SAMPLE : (hover over each element for more information) Username 5/w [Except] [Only] [Prefers] [Specialty]
Unsure which commenter to request a comment from? Note one of our admins with your piece and we'll suggest someone for you!

Besides the restrictions each Commenter states, there are no limitations on the deviations you send them. It doesn't matter how many comments it has already received or how many groups it's a part of -  the only important thing is that it follows deviantART's rules and that it is your own work.

For a visual tutorial on requesting a comment, please click here!


How To Become a Commenter

Send us a note with subject, "Commenter", containing the following:
  • Categories of art you would like to comment on.
  • The amount of comments, per user, that you can make, per week.
  • Any exceptions, preferences, specializations you may have.
  • Whether you would like to receive weekly notes containing deviations that need commenting.
  • A link to one constructive comment on a deviation listed in our Targeted Commenting blog.

Every little bit helps, so even if you only sign up for one sub-category and can only comment on a single deviation per week, we would really appreciate your contribution!

To show how much we are thankful of your efforts, we will be featuring those commenters that spend the most effort commenting, and we may go further in way of :points: and more! :la:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
  • Can I request more than one comment on the same deviation?
    You may send a note to each commenter from whom you would like a comment. Please do not request more than five comments per deviation.
  • I have been waiting a while for my comment, what do I do?
    Commenting takes time, please be patient. We advise commenters to give their comments within a week of receiving the request, but this is not a requirement. In the meantime we encourage you to request a comment from a different user. If you have waited an excessive amount of time, please contact us.
  • I signed up as a commenter, but my name hasn't appeared on the list, what do I do?
    Please give us at least a week to update the list. Contact us if your name is still missing after a week has passed.
  • I need to update/remove my commenter list entry, how do I make these changes?
    Please contact us with the edits that need to be made (give us a week or two to update the list).
  • How long do I have to deliver a comment?
    We advise you to give your comments within a week of receiving the request.
  • I can't comment on [...], what do I do?
    Please contact the requester and let them know why you will not be able to comment on a piece. If the piece requested does not follow the specifications you have listed next to your name, you are not obligated to comment.

    If you feel that you cannot give a comment within a reasonable amount of time (but would otherwise be able to comment a piece), consider lowering the quantity of requests you accept (see above for how to request an update to the list).

Ooh, just a suggestion related to my previous comment here, would you be able to set up a system where the commenter can easily change their status as 'open' or 'closed'? EG. You might make it that in the comment section on this journal, people say when they're free to give comments, and how many, and whatever exceptions/specialties they have. Then those who reply to their comment on the journal first get the comments.
So I could say something like "OPEN: 5 comments, no nudity" then the first five responses get the comments.

:shrug: Just a suggestion.

If you could please tell us how we'd go about setting up such a system, that would be great. :)

Fact is, there is no possible way for members to edit and change their own status, not unless they were admins, which isn't possible for us as a group.

This list is here because we want to keep a constant, open channel where people can see who is available right now.

It may be possible to instigate a project where people state they're free to give comments now, but I'm not sure how that would work. Surely it would be better if the commenter finds pieces to comment if that is the case?

We have plenty of pieces that need comments, both in the gallery folders and favourite folders, as well as other projects like Targeted Commenting.

As I said, it's possible to have a journal entry where people just say on the comments "Open, 5 comments" and whatever restrictions they have. Then people reply to those comments with a link to the deviation and specific questions regarding it. That way it's more targeted. :)
Of course, targeted comments does that as well, but I'm a bit of a lazybum and I'm happy for people to approach me and say they want a comment on something. :XD: Nevermind if you think it's a pointless idea. Sorry about that lol

Hmm...that is interesting. I do like the idea. I guess admins would then come along and hide those comments once the spaces were all filled up and all. :hmm:

So what you're proposing are the following ideas:

1. People happy to comment state they are in a blog to allow people to come to them.
2. People who have short/quick questions about an art piece ask in a blog for other people to answer quickly.

Right? :)

Hmm .. cool idea! I'd sign up for this but my activity on deviantart is pretty erratic :hmm: Could I be a sort of .. bench sitter / reliever person?
PS. Just out of curiosity, how would comment requesters know how many requests have already been sent to that person in a week?

If your activity will be erratic in the sense that you won't be able to give a comment on a piece within a week's time, it's best not to sign up for this system. We have other projects you can sign up for that don't have this requirement.

Typically comment requesters wouldn't know. The limit (e.g. 1/w) is there only so that they send you one piece per week, in case they want to send you five deviations, for example.

Ahh yeah, I just thought it'd be nice to be able to answer specific questions if people want to ask them.

I see. :) Oops, I sort of misread it a bit. I thought saying 1/w meant 1 deviation per week, not 1 deviaton per week for each user. Derp.

It would be interesting if people have quick questions they want answered. We do have a blog where people can ask questions, and we spend a while answering those questions.

I think it's an interesting idea, but I am concerned that people would pose long questions, or questions that require more than just a minute's glance at the artwork, if you get what I mean?

I'd love to help out! ^^ I can comment on every category except literature. It's not that I don't want to read it, as a full time student I just can't guarantee I'll have the time to properly read and evaluate it.
