Hey everyone (sorry this is so long), I've recently discovered the amazing auto comment add-on that prevents one from having to retype comments constantly.

Could we please get a list of recommended (but not required) base Auto Fill that we could personalize a bit if we liked (or not)? The default text is pretty... un-useful to the point that some of them don't actually address what it thinks it does.

I think it'd be great to have some standard that everyone can use without feeling like they're plagiarizing someone else.

I'm pretty sure that others are using this add-on and more may find better defaults helpful in the future.

If anyone's curious, here's what the defaults say now:

Answers to say Thanks: Welcome to Movies & TV! Please don't add "thanks" as answers. Invest some time in the site and you will gain sufficient privileges to upvote answers you like, which is the Movies & TV way of saying thank you.

This one's probably fine.

Nothing but a URL (but not spam): Welcome to Movies & TV! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

This one is ok, too... I guess... but who uses whilst anymore?

Request to the OP for more information: Welcome to Movies & TV! This is really a comment, not an answer. With a bit more rep, you will be able to post comments. For the moment I've added the comment for you, and I'm flagging this post for deletion.

I think the title for this one is the problem, not necessarily the content of it.

OP using an answer for further information: Welcome to Movies & TV! Please use the Post answer button only for actual answers. You should modify your original question to add additional information.

We really need a version of this for people who aren't the OP using answers to post comments.

OP adding a new question as an answer: Welcome to Movies & TV! If you have another question, please ask it by clicking the Ask Question button.

I don't see this one having much use.

Another user adding a 'Me too!': Welcome to Movies & TV! If you have a NEW question, please ask it by clicking the Ask Question button. If you have sufficient reputation, you may upvote the question. Alternatively, "star" it as a favorite and you will be notified of any new answers.

I think this one happens but is pretty rare, too.

Ones that are missing:

  • Requesting the OP provide more information in their question.

  • Requesting an answer be explained more thoroughly (similar to the second one above).

  • Explaining how a question is off topic (this could probably have a couple of varieties).

Others? I'm sure I'm missing some.
