Default Re: The difference between constructive critisism and rude comments....

This is a great reminder! REP!

There is a huge difference and like WhiteT said, it definately doesn't take the offense in things away. If you want to you use 'no offense,' you can turn what you were going to say into constructive critisim. Like this;;

I love you drawing! The eyes are just a tad big, no offense! Love it!

That is just adding on to saying something like, oh I like it but this could be changed... and just saying 'no offense' like that, can make it more sincere. It just helps you seem MORE like you like it.

Thanks!

I can see what you are trying to say about being sincere. But usually anytime that people add the phare no offense..offense has already been take.

Trying to leave that phrase altogther is usually better..like..
I love your drawing and it is fantastic! But I did notice the eyes and I feel that they may be a bit big for that particular Webbie...otherwise I think is a job well done!

For one this type of sentence doesn't completely insult the artist and they are more incline to take what the other persons says and a see it as an area that needs to be worked on rather than your webbie has big eyes so fix it.

That is great that you wrote that! I hope the people that do this kinda stuff will read it...

I see quite a bit of the "No offense" "Not to be rude" "Don't take this the wrong way" "Hate to burst your bubble"

BE NICE!


If you see stuff like that, report it!

I agree with you 100 percent. I'm glad someone has taken the time to address this issue. Some people are better artists than other but that doesn't mean that they should feel any less welcome here at Webkinz Insider. Another thing about leaving constructive criticism, if you give a complement instead of just criticism it's a lot nicer.

Instead of: I really don't think that looks much like a penguin because it's beak is too big.

Say...

I love how you gave the penguin a scarf! If you make it's beak a little smaller it would look even cuter.

Or something of that sort. Anyways can you see the difference you not only tell them something that they need to work on but something that you DO like. Even if that scarf looks more like a snake you can still think that it was cool that they had the idea of adding a scarf or whatever. I think if everyone could understand the difference between constructive criticism and rudeness WI would be an even better place.

That's really great advice. Here might be an example that could hurt feelings. "That looks so ugly. Just kidding." That was an example that someone could take the wrong way even though the person said just kidding.

The underlined part:

This is a perfect example of what everyone should be saying.
I tried to think of an example got soo stuck in trying to change the sentence I was quoting that I didn't even think to come up with a differentone.

But your example is exactly on the money!!! 5 Stars

I found someone who said this "It does make sense but I personally would not name a Webkinz that." Should I report them?

Personally I would say no in regards to reporting them. One they didn't say that the name you picked was terrible and that they would never name their pet that.

Instead they gave their opinion/feelings and added that they understood why you chose the name that you did.

There is a difference between someone name calling you for your choice, making a blanket statement that is rude and/or behaving as if their negative feeling are facts....instead they told you how they felt in a relatively mature manner.
