Thread: The Critique Corner amuses me lately...

  1. #1

    Default The Critique Corner amuses me lately...

    Has anyone noticed that lately, lots of people are posting multiple pictures, pictures without write-ups, etc, in the Critique corner (more than the usual I mean). Last night/this morning there seemed to be a flood...

    And ironically, if you tell them to read the guidelines (only one picture per week, provide a write-up, don't post a huge image, use a resized one) and then still dig through their mis-linked image to provide them with some initial feedback, you get lovely PMs calling you rude.

    Never read the guidelines, then complain when someone points them out to you...

    Some people are too thin-skinned.

    Here's a classic example of a PM I receive:

    "That was REALLY RUDE! I did want some comments on it. I just tried and i don't see what's the big problem. You need lessons in manners! I'm going to delete the thread.
    Forget I ever wrote it.

    P.s By the way, it was a photorapher tat pointed me to that thread!"




    Ah, life...

    See? I told people that CS kopitiam likes to suan people even when an issue is over. This issue has been drawn to a close, but somebody is trying to flame it up again. We will wait till the CSer sees this. I'll be happy to see the aftermath. Even a moderator here condones this action and is doing nothing.

    Actually, I never mentioned any names, nor did I know there was any post in Feedback when I posted this.

    mod bashing is not something i condone here.
    if you have an issue with a mod then bring it up in the proper forum.

    and at the same time you can request to have a no suanning rule

    This thread is not going anywhere.

    I will be closing it but would invite comments on how we can continue to improve the Critique Corner in a separate thread.

    Most prominent problem is newer members do not bother to read the guidelines before posting.
