the whole reason i'm on here (besides chatting with all of you interesting folk, which is a nice fringe benefit) in the first place is to improve my modelling skills. i'm far from perfect, but thanks to people from here making positive suggestions and offering help and techniques, i feel the quality of my work has progressed from awful to middling in recent times.
i'm thankful for this, and try to show my thanks by returning the favour of a helpful tip or even a kind word to spur people along. some things i see that i dont like at all; and i just refrain from commenting. regardless of whether you like or dislike someone, or if they've done stupid shit in the past, it's against all of our best interests to merely discount things out of hand due to prejudice.
that been said, there's sort of an unwritten internet rule of "show and prove" or "pics or it didn't happen". lets face it, people are full of shit sometimes. who else has come recently? a SC based mod, met with interest, due to screens. Conflict Terra, met with interest, due to screens. i can't help but notice a pattern.
in the case of xzalion (sherlock holmes and the case of the missing xzalion
has a nice ring to it) he made some pretty hefty claims as to a resume without anything to immediately back it up, so of course all of our resident holmeses and watsons went to work. if he hadn't said something like that he had been a developer on a professional level, people wouldn't be clamouring to know more about it.
for us : we are all rude sometimes, and in that particular case, some of us went a bit above and beyond what could have been just a post of a kitten facepalming.
for him : not surprised he flipped his wig and took off. if he came back tomorrow, after all of this uproarage, with something tangible to show, i'm pretty sure we'd see immediate acceptance.
for argh : next time, team with hunter for a rap song
and btw happy friday all!
