I do find the resurrection of this thread to be quite timely though, considering recent events.  So thank you EvilElitest, and welcome to the Guild.

T complete my threadcromancy spell, I now need a vaguely on-topic statement that doesn't add anything of value to the discussion:


My teacher posted the following comment as part of what's expected of the students. The wording makes me wonder if she's read over this thread before:

"If you like someone's work tell them why and give examples. If you don't like something, let that student know, back it up with examples and offer some productive solutions that they could possibly use to fix the dilemma. I also want you to try and comment on people that you normally wouldn't critique. It gives each of you a fresh perspective on your work and opens up the line of communication to more of your peers!"

This thread was primarily a resource about how to give and receive feedback diplomatically, in an attempt to minimize resulting conflict. I am not sure the Six Thinking Hats are relevant in that context.

They are, however, interesting, and would probably make for a neat discussion. But I don't think this thread is the best place for that conversation. :yumm:

Well they *are* (besides a tool for brainstorming) meant to facilitate diplomatic communication about the exchange of ideas. >.>
You can break off the thread if you'd like.
