what to do with hates / permanent thumbdowners?

category: general [glöplog]
I just want to ask those people who think that they don't deserve dislikes... Why do you think that you are perfect? I'm 100% sure that non of you are like that, because nothing is perfect. So deal with the fact that not all people will like your prods, because different people have different quality standards and aesthetic taste.

Honestly, this is such a childish topic...

Why not get rid of thumb down option completely?
i'm sure someone did a tampermonkey script for that already o_O

At some point someone systematically thumbed down all textmode demos. I took note, but decided to just ignore it.

I think you misunderstand the whole thread.

So it can be an all out positive like-fest like Fecalbook? I don't know if that'd be any better. Also, please fix you downloads, I want to take a look at Texture Studio :)

@dex46, i mean, you just don't understand, what i am talking about.
if there is one exact person who thumbs down every your prod for years - do you deserve that? well, maybe you do. but is this the way that healthy society should go?

ignoring the hate is the easiest way. install a tampermonkey script to ignore all text by those people automatically if you typically end up reading them.

No facepalm big enough.

Don't think it's a problem with people disliking prods. Preacher seemed to ask the relevant question here:

I still wish someone explained to me clearly just what it is with the Russian spectrum people and all the drama though.

One shouldn't get involved with social pornography, but I'll have to admit I'm kind of intrigued too.

I don't vote and I don't care about if you don't vote for me. I never liked that kindergarden-bs-bingo. imho!

For those who are wondering what is wrong with angry Russian spectrum people, in a nutshell, let's say, there are some people who maybe have been offended in some ways long time ago, and they have a very long memory and an enormous desire to revenge all their offenders, and all their friends and families as well. i know, sounds creepy, but nobody knows what to do now.

On the subject of Texture Studio there is a goody in the incoming directory of scene.org (in the /resources/graphics/) that is. :)

Perhaps it is possible to make a demo about it. A demo that will subsequently NOT be thumbed down!

The trick is not caring what people on Pouet thinks about whatever you make. If you know some douchebag is always going to thumb down your prods, no matter what.. well, you just explained why you shouldn't care.

I'm just gonna stop you right there.

Pouet is the biggest and most prominent demoscene website out there, especially when it comes to discussion on prods. Anything that goes on here is the first public-facing side of the scene, and as such creates an impression. Sure, YOU can ignore it, but then don't be surprised if those Fantastic Talented Motion Designers don't really feel like joining the scene no matter how hard you Notch them.

Again: There's a difference between 1) when someone has a negative opinion and expresses it perhaps more bluntly than should (oh yes i'm going there again) because that sort of bluntness is in a way part of the scene and once you get to know those people that effect dampens and that opinion crystallizes more, and 2) when some people want to use the discussion forums as a scorched Earth tactic to get rid of people who they don't like by turning the whole joint into a massive toxic cesspool.

So no, I think while one option is just sticking a massive banner on the site saying "DONT READ ANYTHING HERE but yeah welcome to the scene", I think just rotting out the few weeds who dirty up some corners is much more efficient and overall better on the long run.

Maybe we need a tag for russian speccy users like there is one for fakeusers :)

The only solution to this problem is to suspend Gloom for 10 years and see if he turns ok in 2028.

Also a bit intrigued by the Russian backstory as well. Maybe someone could make a demo about it? Like, in a positive way?
There I fixed it.

TS or people behind them probably had not enough balls to tell the names, so I have to do it. Those "people" TS speaks about is exactly me.

The only my question to @Gargaj: when do I get my ban for all the thumbdowns I've set here?

Right, so can someone explain what the conflict is, if there is one?
