I see. My paranoia at work. The problem I see sometimes is a reluctance to give complimentary feedback outweighing critique due to the competitive nature of artists as a whole. It's been discussed that simple, complimentary posts aren't substantive or useful but this forum software seems capable of integrating some form of public medium within a topic to give simple, positive feedback without it being simply a means of the commenter fishing for karma points. Yeah. Registering here helped me develop a sense of the thickened skin needed for someone taking the craft seriously. If criticism is something they can't handle here, then publishing/publicising their end product by whatever means isn't going to work out all that well.
