I don't have a problem with opinions..
I do take exception to the pack like mentality that some of your chartered members have... From my perspective, you guys just seem to come out like rabid animals (forgive the pun) anytime Ramy or Seki post a design... I'm not trying to offend, I'm just pointing out that it's very obvious that it's personal...
For the record, I do submit... under a different name... Not often, but I have submitted...
you've edited this, but since i saw the original i'd like to point out that my problem is never with seiki and ramby. while most of their designs aren't for me (though i have voted for a few), i would not want them all rejected and i don't care if others vote for them IF they like them. my problem is people voting for spite, which i've said goes both ways as does the trash talking, and the odd rules and rejections woot has in place. there was nothing changed here but the color of the cat, and its still a similar project. it stinks as many will find this design better than some they find at their local shirt distributors, but only fair to other artists who have been whacked for less.
as for pointing out things, i do sometimes point out things more for them just like i did last week cause they've been known to do 2nd versions (though i don't think i did for parks or cooking). last week each one submitted a version 2.0. i've noticed some artists will read the critique and questions, but never think of resubmitting (possibly out of fear of losing votes) so sometimes i don't bother with their's. i only did this week on ramby's cause i accidently said something on his first design and then saw his 2nd design to say how the rabbit and cat should be switched since the cat didn't seem to care a zombie dog was behind them. also i thought the dog was just dressed up, but i can be easily confused, just ask patrickpens's were- pumpkins.
it may seem like i'm only after ramby and seiki for the same reason others only seem to go after them, which is that they get so much play while others are kinda ignored. notice how no one started a big deal when cyclonaut's design was said to be:
"A: Submit the overdone, disproportionate pin up Halloween Ho (in gym socks, none the less - WT?) who's apparently b***h slapping some poor pumpkin headed child that resulted from Octo-mom's consumption of Monsanto squash during pregnancy. (Or perhaps her plastic surgeon was simply twisted and decided to surprise her.)"
while maybe not something they tell the artist every week, i think that's a bit personal and rude as well, but no one seemed to go after them.
but in the end i really have no pony in this race. i vote for shirts i like just like everyone else is given the chance to do, hell, i may have even voted for some of your's (cue the twilight zone music!!!).
ps, we may seem a bit crabby cause we're just confused once again over the rules and rejections. as i've said numerous times i think they should pay more attention to the derby and do rejections daily cause as others have said last chance ones don't give an artist much of a chance for a do over and sometimes just make them confused when it would've been an obvious rejection the first day.
