RE: Are You Excited About Hive Yet?
I would like to take up the cudgels for naysayers.
In every system there are naysayers and if one is able to look past the personal insults and instead look at the criticism, the naysayers are doing a favour to anyone who looks at the criticism expressed from the point of view of improving a structure. I
f it were not for the complainers and fault-finders in a system, the creators or technicians would often not know what to work on, because as the one who brings something into being, one might take too narrow a view.
The naysayers - voluntarily or involuntarily - give suggestions for improvement. Just take a product of a company. It wouldn't develop very much if it weren't for consumers or those who try out an article who say that, for example, the emergency drainage hose of a washing machine shouldn't be attached at the back but at the front (I've just chosen a dumb example, but this will do).
The wording, however, may be completely different, such as "This fucking washing machine! Did the idiots put the hose in the back where I can't reach it, and then it broke off when I moved the heavy-as-shit machine!" and so on. It is not difficult to separate the curses from the informational content if you switch off your ego and really listen to what the "user" has to say. Companies that don't imagine they know everything better themselves are happy to listen to their users and they not only get free advice (how clever to use the consumer as an advisor who is not even paid for it) but also satisfied customers when they see that their criticism has been accepted.
Personally I don't use insulting language so much and try to formulate criticism in a rather light or creative way, but really no one is interested, it seems, have never had the question answered by anyone who knows why you can't set up guest comments on Hive.
Since many people read and comment here, I'll ask this again: is this technically possible? Everyone always talks so much about it, advertising for this platform would be important, but a very important feature like "guest comments" without having your own account is not possible? My question may be naïve from a technical point of view, but I think it is often the naïve questions that are worth answering.
