You know how you sometimes critique different things different ways? For example, some submissions you just want to give a paragraph or two of general suggestions. Others you want to type comments within the story and be very specific. Sound familiar?

I think the next literature update should take that into consideration. Similar to critiquecircle.com, I'd like to offer several critique formats, and you can choose which one you want for each critique.


For example, this format would be for general comments - where you wouldn't need to quote the entire thing you're critiquing. At the same time, you wouldn't need to keep scrolling between the writing and your critique.

Thoughts?

Testing out some more potential tools. This one will automatically copy selected text into your critique box, and format it, too.

Are there any other tools like this you would find useful?

I can't think of any, but that looks pretty cool thus far!

If you'd like to play around with the progress so far, you can do so here.

There is some default prose in the box, but it cannot post crits.

This is the second critique style I'm working on, called an inline critique.

Instead of quoting an entire post and typing all your comments inside it, you can simply click a paragraph and its own text box will appear.

If you comment on a paragraph, it will turn blue, so you can easily determine which ones you've already commented on.

I like this one too! Is there a way to use both systems or something, since people critique in different styles.

Yes, when you critique something, you'll be able to choose which one you want to do.

I'm working on a third type which is more like a questionnaire - and should be useful for new members to understand what a good critique is like.

Hm, it's interesting, but I feel like it's a bit complicated, especially if you're like me and pretty much comment on everything. We can just keep doing line-by-line the old way, right? Because I don't really see the point of copy-and-pasting 75% of the text when I can just stay within it and keep the continuity of the piece.
