New Feature: Comment Rating

The title says it all today, there’s a new reader feature in the form of comment ratings; meaning, you’ll be able to up/down vote individual comments. It’s super simple to use, at the bottom of each respective comment, you’ll find a thumbs up and thumbs down icons along with a total count for each.

Now don’t get any ideas about vote-spamming any particular comment you love or hate, the system has measure to help prevent that but this feature should come in handy during issues that tend to draw strong opinions, such as labor dispute coverage.

I also wanted to add a new way for readers to engage with content and discussion in a more passive sense, especially for the host of you out there who would otherwise leave a comment but your position in the field makes that different.

This feature has been automatically added to all existing posts so feel free to go back through your fav comments and vote accordingly.

Share and enjoy!

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
