All Ludum Dare entries for the current event are watched to gather data, including how much comments they have and who wrote them.
For each comment you make, you get points that will help you get featured higher on the site (much like the good old "coolness" system). The more feedback you give, the more you'll get!
N.B. You become Feedback Friends with someone when that person commented on your entry, and you commented back on theirs :)
It takes about a hour to run through all entries from the event. The comment you just wrote won't appear here until the worker reaches that entry you commented on. So while comments don't appear here immediately, please be patient, they will eventually!
NB. While you can use "force refresh" to update your entry, you can't update all your comments that way.
Unfortunately, this site has not been designed with teams in mind since it was built for LD36, i.e. for the old LD site. The consequence is that only the team leader's comments will be counted. Right now it is not planned to fix that due to the efforts it would require, combined with the fact that Feedback Friends will hopefully be made obsolete by future LDJam updates. A workaround would be to share the team leader's account for commenting!
Especially since migrating to the new LDJam website, platform detection is not very accurate. Right now it just looks for certain keywords in the game post. Hopefully it will get better when game submission gets completed on LDJam.
Once you've given 100p worth of comments, congratulations, you've won :) Comments above that score don't account in the balance, to favor the games with fewer comments.
