Some advice:

-    When criticising a designer’s work, try to explain your opinion and say why you think so and how you would design it.

-    Please, do not show too much expression. First think of how your commentary would look from the point of view of a more experienced visitor.

-    Watch the word and deed ratio – not only criticize, but show your own expertise. Try to value your skill level and knowledge – is your advice likely to be helpful to someone?
