    PMs and sharing work

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by art, Oct 21, 2010.

    Hey

    If I wanted someone to crtitique a little something, is stuff (a very short piece) sent by PM reachable by search engines, or is email the better (only) way?

    Cheers

    PMs are private, and can't be accessed by search engines.

    speaking only for myself, email is best, since pms are too much of a hassle... i don't even do critiques/edits in an email, only in attached documents, where i'll have all the editing options readily available...

    On the other hand, sharing your email address can be risky. Think twice before you give it out to someone you don't know well.

    that's certainly true, cog, though in the 10 years or so that i've been posting my email address with a help offer in my sig info, i haven't had any negative results from same... i seem to be 'protected' somehow... spooky, huh? ;-)
