When you're commenting on something in the Literature section, we've provided a list of questions you can answer to help your comments about the piece be as useful and constructive as possible. To view them, click "View Critique Questions" - it's located below the text box:


Simple Critique is for general advice for the author.
Story Critique is for in-depth story advice.
Poetry Critique is for in-depth poem advice.

If you want, you can enable Critique Buttons. These buttons will take the same questions as before, but will insert them into the text box, allowing you to write comments after each question. There is also an Inline Format option which puts every paragraph from a piece into its own quote box, allowing you to easily write comments after each one (please delete any paragraphs you don't comment on):


NOTE: Critique buttons will not work on all browsers. They also don't work if you enabled the WYSIWYG interface. If this is true for you, you should choose the Pop-up Window option.

To switch between using Critique Buttons or a Pop-up Window with questions, go to the Edit Options part of your User Control Panel, scroll all the way to the bottom, and choose one. You can also turn off WYSIWYG if you want to use buttons:

Awesome idea. I had to fiddle around with my editor interface and whatnot to get it to work, but I see it now. I don't know if I'll be using it, though. My old way of critiquing, though cumbersome, seems fine to me.

Unless you find my critiques lacking? I think I'll go crit your prologue again instead of writing my own story. I'm so bad.

EDIT: It doesn't seem to work on basic editor either, which is the interface I use.

It works in Safari and Firefox. It might be your browser.

Do you mean the buttons or popup window doesn't work?

Yes, Carraka, I had YOU in mind when I made these buttons. JK, JK....

I'm using Firefox. And neither the buttons nor the popup windows work. Maybe it's an anomaly. Or maybe I'm blind.

And if you think my critiques are that bad, I suppose I shouldn't crit any of your work. x.x It's okay. I'll crit Shaun's instead. Maybe he'll appreciate me.

Problem found, and fixed. Thanks for finding it. Do they work in the simple editor now, Carraka?

Really, enough of that critique worthiness talk. Your crits are great.

Oooo yes. They totally work now. So how do I turn them off? xD Kidding. I will need them some day, for some obscure reason.

Apparently, starting critique-worthiness talk leads to flattery. So why would I want to stop? Ever so faithfully, life continues to teach.
