Shmegg, if you don't mind me asking, what are we allowed to talk? Sure we must be allowed to criticize the staff in order for them to know what needs to be improved on. We need to be allowed ask simple questions such as is Blackfires unfit to even work for Zone due to him basically being unintelligent? (The answer is yes btw) It's vital that we ask questions in order for the team to improve...Crap criticism > no criticism
I have been nuking the Zone subforum a bit too much lately.
But a lot of people have been going overboard with their "criticisms" to the point where it's just straight up harassment of the other party.
"This is what I would fix/work on, this is what you did good, etc."
"I don't like x
, you need to fix it."
"This is garbage, you're stupid, why would you even make this, etc."
I've been seeing a lot of the former lately. It seems that you guys don't even care about the actual quality of the work, it's just being insulted due to personal issues you all have with the creators.
Here is my criticism about your post about criticisms.
You say Blackfires is unfit to work for Zone because he is unintelligent. Okay, that's a bit rude. What's your evidence to support the idea that he's unfit/unintelligent? Try listing that instead of just name-calling him. That would be proper criticism. (And maybe try not to demean a person subjectively, criticize them objectively.)
And I don't agree with the "crap criticism > no criticism" sentiment. You should give ideas for the betterment of the thing you want changed. Currently, a lot of Zonians are just slandering each other and insulting works without any actual substance to their claims. Hardly anyone is offering a solution. (And, if it is, it's usually accompanied with a few insults.)
Yes, I agree with being able to criticize the staff team. I'm not trying to defend them in an "us vs. them" way; they can be just as guilty in this as anyone else. There has just been so
much pointless negativity lately that it's just trashing the subforum. There could be so much improvement if all of the arguing stopped and people actually worked together for a solution.
Sorry, it's been a long night.
