Why comments are useful!!!!


Why comments are useful!!!!
I made a crossword a few days ago about Food and Drinks! Quite a few people downloaded it but only 5 left a message.
 Yesterday I realized I had made a mistake so I updated it and I have just  sent a message to the five people who left a comment to tell them about it . I will send them (free) the new version!
So sorry for the others but just two kind words can be useful!
Have a nice day!

Good point, FabienneWink

yes I agree with you and magneto!
and it īs so nice to see the flags of the people who left comments... that īs my favourite thing about comments: looking at the flag and thinking that some pupils in Greece/Spain/Argentina... might work on documents I used with my pupils...
take care

I wholeheartedly agree, Elodie and Fabienne!

 This quote is quite cool:
"The six most important words: I admit I made a mistake. The five most important words: You did a good job. The four most important words: What is YOUR opinion? The three most important words: If you please. The two most important words: Thank You. The one most important word: We. The least important word: I." ~ Unknown

And this one, well it īs just beautiful....

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." - Marcel Proust

Have a lovely day!

We talk about this question from time to time and very few people are really grateful for all the work other people do for us. For some of us recognition is more important than any other thing and we should help to keep people motivated.

i īll give you a tip someone else on eslp gave me a few months ago:
when saving a ws, change the name like that <name_of_file_author.doc>. for example if i downloaded your ws "codebreaker" it would be named    codebreaker_tomywad.doc   on my computer!
So if you don īt have time to leave a comment, you can go back easily to the page of the ws by searching for it!!! + if you like this author īs ws and you don īt have time to look at new contributions every single day, you can look at your favorite authors ī newest contributions once a week (when you īll have more points of course!!!)

take care!!!

I always leave a thank you when I download a worksheet but I don īt expect others to do so. I also don īt care how many times my worksheets have been download. It īs all about sharing in my humble opinion.
