>>253749 I also mean those shitty "plz r8 my shit" where 8th grades post their shitty meme oc, tryin to be funny. I know that shit 404'd eventually, but it takes to fucking long, and as u said, cloggs the whole fucking catalog.
>>253719 I wanted to make a thread like yours a few days ago. Besides what you said, I would like to add something as well, which is more of a pet peeve than anything else, but it’s starting to upset me. And I don’t understand why it happens specifically to this board: a vast majority of these posts butcher the language, have no regards towards punctuation, they use “xD” unironically, and their grammar is preposterous. Now I don’t expect everyone on the Internet to strictly obey every single rule and behave like elitists, but combine that with their defensive attitude when you tell them that their work is shit (which it is), and they start acting like imature kids… Some of them are from third world countries or Eastern Europe, judging by the copy in the design. And that doesn’t bother me at all—heck, I live in one of them—but it seems that they have no quality standards for anything. I apologize for this rant, but I hate to see the catalog filled with worthless threads and OP bumping his own thread as the only reply. It's just that I wish /gd/ was at a higher level than shitposting boards.
>>254063 It's a weird dynamic. Graphic Design is a profession for many of us, but this board exists because it is also a hobby or interest for many people. In theory, we should be posting links to design blogs and discussing artists and styles and how to most effectively communicate information to users, and other utilitarian methods. This should be a board for sharing ideas. But so few professional Graphic Designers post here, that most of what we get is asswipes demanding free work and kids shitposting their trash everywhere. So for me personally, as a career graphic designer, I don't feel comfortable posting any of my work or having these discussions, because I am forced to assume that most users here are approaching the board with a completely different mindset. I have yet to find a single GD community on the internet that is much more than GD noobs asking for advice. That's not a bad thing, I think it's wonderful that they're able to get help from more experienced people, and God knows that's been helpful to me in the past too! But I haven't yet found a community of GDers just shooting the shit and talking shop about GD related stuff. It doesn't help that I work in Seattle and all the GD hangouts end up being weird TEDx knockoffs or awkward networking meetings for college students. Again, those things are great and super helpful, but also not what I'm looking for. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places, or maybe I shouldn't be looking for a GD community online? I have no idea. I do love the potential of this board, and I really want to help support it with good discussions to outweigh the shitposts, but I'm honestly not sure how.
>>254071 After reading, I think this may have sounded much more vitriolic than I intended. I apologize, I did not intend to sound mean spirited. I'm hopeful. And again, I want to help, but I'm really not sure how.
>>254072 I fully agree with what you said. Regarding your search for a community, I'd suggest designernews.co. You've probably heard of it already, it's quite famous. Unfortunately it's ridden with cancerous SJWs. Other than that, I have no idea.
