Why the Comment Section on Dribbble Sucks

    Sharing on Dribbble itself is surface level, so then the comments follow suit.

    You barely scratch the surface of intent, what problems are being solved, how clients shaped the result/progress. It's built for quick, in-progress shots to evoke and capture a quick gut level reaction.

    You need to see and know more for a true critique

      I kept thinking of building a creative network based on case studies where everyone has to provide the sort of info you speak of:

      I totally agree with what your saying. Though theres also people out there adding additional attachments and giving a longer write up on the process etc.

      But the comment section isn't intended to be a spammed billboard with superfluous comments either. It's an issue when it's being abused for self-promoting.

      I agree, but that doesn't work if you look at Behance. The commenters on there are second only to YouTube commenters.
