Well, I'd definitely use it :)
Tailored comments would be preferable, and the user script Anna shared is more or less the feature as I want it, but I think there would be some value in assembling a list of template comments to better guide users write helpful comments (and use in the script).
I'm always struggling with my English, several of my comments have been misunderstood as snarky, my syntax and spelling may be good, but more often than not my comments are verbatim translations of what I'm thinking in Greek, and that doesn't always work.
I usually go one of three ways:
- Down / close vote with no comment (just won't bother),
- Copy someone else's comment, with slight adjustments,
- Comment with my broken English and hope for the best :)
In short, I have to think, even slightly, and I would love it if I didn't have to think, at all. Comment wars are more than usual, and template comments could help, and get more users to participate. There's one example of an auto generated comment, the one that appears when a possible duplicate vote is cast.
I'm playing around with the script now, and it seems more than enough. I'll try and compile a list of comments and share at some point, hope others will use / improve them.
