It's The Final Dribbble by Jakub Linowski(dribbble.com)

    I feel like this complaint would carry more weight if Jakub had posted more work that invited critique. He only posted a few times in the past year, never attached a full size image that could be adequately critiqued, and most importantly: he never asked for critique.

    Dribbble seemed to have more people offering feedback in the past, but it often seemed pedantic. Because the format lends itself to small snapshots the critiques would often be about sub-pixel nuances, not questions of objectives or user needs, or anything beyond the superficial.

    And that's fine, I like dribbble for what it is and what it's not.

    With the ability to attach full size images it does seem like it's becoming more suited for proper critique but I don't really use it for that. I find co-workers have always been my go-to source for constructive criticism.

    But I see this complaint about dribbble all the time, so what sites and communities would you all recommend for someone wanting to have their work critiqued?

      You're absolutely right

      Agreed. I think one of the biggest problems is that people are complaining about one thing or another but not working personally to make the change they claim to want.

      If you want critique on your work, ask for it! If you want to show WIP work, do it. Dribbble wasn't built to become what it currently is, it's a tool created for designers to use and choose how they want to use it. We have collectively made it what it is.
