Communication Is Key


Hey all you jovotans,

I just wanted to take a minute and talk about something that’s been wondering around the collective-community-management-consciousness.

So we’re all here on jovoto to collaborate and make great things together, right?

YES ! And we’ve been thinking about, what does it take to do all of these great things?

It takes the courage to use your voice and the courage to listen aka: giving & listening to feedback.

There are so many great examples on jovoto of, even if it is a bit harsh, feedback *when given in a constructive and helpful way* has helped ideas flourish and become not only contest winning but simply great ideas, designs, campaigns, you name it!

So it’s very important that if you ever have the feeling that your feedback is resulting in bad votes or “bashing” of your own ideas, don’t hesitate to contact us! This is what we are here for and we will always listen and have a look into the situation.

It’s a must that we all feel confident and comfortable to communicate. It is after all how collaboration works best,-with the willingness to learn from others and devotion to your ideas.

    i am living proof that honest feedback on jovoto leads to bashed ideas. and contacting jovoto staff is useless because nearly all my messages go unanswered indefinitely. so i consider your little propaganda article insincere and knowingly misleading.

    @teigan: and you, a brilliant lost star in the universe, bashing, lazy hyperinterlligent, not being understood for just yourself being a black clown.
