    If you rate something poorly (like this post, for example), it would be nice if you also posted a comment so I can get a more meaningful sense about what you didn't like about a given piece and do a better job next time. This is why I have never been a fan of ratings on Channel 9... Not enough folks rate and low ratings are never explained. It's all quite useless (for content makers).

    Charles, you´re doing a great job to (Visual) C++ Community... Now, I´m very proud to be the only Brazilian C++ MVP Wink... You´re a key person in this C++ Renaissence stuff!

    @Charles:
    Well i can guess it's because there's no real content of importance in this video.
    Just a bunch of sales pitches for why c++ is great and why people should become MVPs.

    The MVP deal is just another way for microsoft to do PR as far as i can tell.
    I see no incentive for me to become an MVP.
    Where's the carrot for me ?

    @Mr Crash: Well, its a chitchat with people around C++, developing it or supporting it in anyway, they are MVPs of Microsoft forums, you don't expect then begin to exalt and talk about how Vi are a nice editor, same way you not expect an interview with Android people and they begin to exalt Java ME. Perplexed

    It's a nice work @Charles, its good fill the gap between technical C++ videos while we wait for then. [edit]Only now I see hovering the mouse on starts rate the videos! Expressionless [/edit]

    I suggest people use more the Ch9 forums, for post comments, share code and experiments, I see it is well used for C#, lets C++ show on there too Wink

    @Mr Crash: as Kate Gregory said, MVP is not a reason for you to be nice, helpful and passionate, its rather a natural result if you really are nice, helpful and passionate, and she will do what she is doing even if there is no such a MVP thing at all.

    Really? Perhaps you should press play and also listen.

    @Charles:I wouldn't go as far as to say it's useless.  Most times when a consumer doesn't like a product, they don't tell advertiser.  This is a little similar to that.  So having a vote down button with no comment is definetely better than no vote down button at all.  That doesn't take away from the fact that if someone is going to vote down, it would be much more helpful if they also comment and explain why.
