Request to ISCians: understand how to submit a good response to an articleFriends,
It has been reported by editors who are reviewing article responses that members are not really bothering to read the article in its totality before posting a response.
Please try to understand that posting an article response is as valuable to ISC as the article itself. Just as the article provides good content on a page, so also should the article response. Giving inane responses which are unrelated to the article's topic, repeating what is already mentioned in the article and repetition of your own sentences in the article response - these are all useless contributions, to put it very bluntly.
Let's expect some quality responses please from ISCians. Do read the Guidelines for Articles Responses.
To put it simply: The response should give additional information or correct information in the article, just as is done when giving an update for the schools/college/My India section.
You can use HTML tags for points to present your response in a better way. You can also provide links to your own article or some other internal page which is relevant to the article's topic.
If you feel that you have a lot to say, then why not submit a fresh article from your perspective? We do accept articles on the same topic if there is a new, fresh and unique presentation of it. You can simply link it to the already submitted article. Once you submit your article, in a response to the earlier article you can give a link to yours.
One important point to note: Do not submit responses to articles which are in new submissions or in pending mode. If the article gets deleted, then your response too will get deleted.
Any queries related to submitting article responses? Ask them in a response in this thread & we will guide you.
