Disable comments for all files in account

Disable comments for all files in account

I have NO INTEREST IN COMMENTS on what I graciously share.

I am MOST annoyed that Dropbox is forcing the insistence of making a "social" experience on every Dropbox user without giving us an option to disable comments in a Basic Account. If I wanted a "social" experience for file sharing, I would have chosen a service specifically for that or I could simply use My Wordpress accounts for that purpose.

If I am forced to pay for the ability to control what happens with files I share via Dropbox - comments specifically - I will choose any other service than Dropbox for my future file storage and sharing needs.

I loved Dropbox for the excellent and what I felt was truly private ability to control how I store and share My files. I feel that Dropbox has made a terrible error by (1) making such an intense change to the service without giving Us time to adjust Our files that We share to avoid unnecessary work of babysitting comments; and (2) not treating users with basic respect with an opt-out function during a TRIAL PERIOD for comment sharing.

So do I. I do NOT appreciate being forced to have a babysitting function that I cannot disable without paying Dropbox for it.

I also dislike the comments feature. While I think these are valid points, my biggest complaint is that I want to look at multiple pictures from my browser and the comments sidebar has to be closed every time I open a picture. This is especially annoying because they are private files and the only one who can view them is me. I see little point in commenting on something when no one else will ever be able to see my comments.

Agreed. I'll just give up Dropbox and find another cloud hosting service if this isn't changed.

There should be a global preference to disable the comment feature. Is Dropbox just trying to annoy those who don't want it?

New member | Level 1

Yes! I want to DISABLE ALL COMMENTS in my BASIC account!

Explorer | Level 3

+1. I want a feature to disable the comments.

Super User II

Agreed. I do not need this functionality and would like to disable it.

Dear Dropbox - Comments is a feature that some people will find useful. Some/many people will not find it useful, and some will find it a fatal flaw. So why not make it a feature YOU CAN DISABLE. Then everyone will be happy. I am a user with 2 Pro accounts, and I am not happy (for me, it is fatal flaw).
