While I like to leave comments on levels as often as I can, I'll usually end up forgetting a few things about a level by the time it's over. I think that an option should be added that lets you leave a comment inside of a level.

I guess it could be placed sort of like a magic mouth. When you find something that really stands out or you think could use some improvement, just place it.

Of course, there would need to be some way to control how much it's used. An option to not let people leave in level comments is a start, but how to control when a level gets way too much traffic.

Well, it's just a thought...

:eek:

Or if you could just hit start and go to a comment section that allowed you to add as you go through the level and then at the end of the level you could just submit your entire set of comments made during play. That would be nice for those developer and F4F reviews.

You know what...? Brilliant, just brilliant. I'm currently picturing in my mind, entering a level and different comments about the level popping up.

Perhaps the creator could choose which ones they are. It could be like the tagging system, except you see the comments as soon as you enter the level, and they are truly inspiring.
This could actually be somewhat of an alternative to tags and comments.

I love the idea, and think that you should email Media Molecule with it. Truly awesome, I was thinking of an idea like this but could never fit it into a thread as I tend to forget.

:p

Well, if they made it a default thing for everyone, a level like Ramp would have "glue the rocket" so many times. :blush:

It would be handy for co-creation work or for times when you are giving genuine feedback, but it might not be that helpful for everyone. Not everyone will give decent or useful feedback. :(

I think this is a fantastic idea!

Here's how I'd address the concerns from others in this thread:

(1) Allow the creator to allow "all user comments" "all friends comments" or "no comments"

(2) Have an option to set a maximum number of comments per user.

(3) Allow the comments to be viewed by only "you", "you & your friends" or "everyone"

(4) Delete options: by "individual comment", "all comments from one user", "all comments in the level"

IDK I mean I like getting as much feedback as I can on my levels, but If I was playing somone elses level, I wouldnt wanna have a magic mouth stop me every 5 seconds saying "this is cool" or "Change that" "if that was green it would look awesome" "This thing sucks" "OMFG thats too Hard" "ect... ect... ect..." Just seems like it would be a major destraction for online play...

Well put. This is probably the best solution for all the concerns people are having.

True, very true. I would easily be turned off from the level if comments were to pop up every 5 seconds....
