    Perhaps new shorthand is needed? People often walk on eggshells as they don't know if they should really critique what they're seeing. Maybe a simple "FP" (feedback please) or "RFP" (real feedback please) might help … things? Maybe "FA" or "RFA" (feedback appreciated).

      What do you think about just having a culture of giving feedback? At the end of the day aren't we all just trying to create things for others to enjoy. I don't think we should have to explicitly ask for something.

    "Getting design feedback is just one function of the office and it is probably the least interesting. No one develops loyalty to an office based on the groups technical feedback skills."

    I dunno, it's pretty damn important to me. Getting along with your coworkers is important and all, but if they don't have the capacity to give you feedback and push you to be better, then there's very little point in working there versus somewhere where your coworkers are both fun AND capable.

    I've never really seen Dribbble as a surrogate for organizations' promises to 'join up, get involved, grow your career,' but it's an interesting and keen observation to make. I'm not deeply engaged in Dribbble, but your observation is a great example of how communities grow outside of structure and often achieve the goals that those structures struggle to achieve.

    I grew up in the DIY punk scene were it was all about growing independent communities outside of what was established. Fast-forward to now, I'm involved in the Graphic Designers of Canada (our version of AIGA). I do believe these organizations have potential to help build a voice and a professional standard for designers, however I agree that their promises are presently quite dubious.

    I am trying to figure out how I can work my previous experience into a structured organization, and how I can help my chapter grow in those organic ways.

    I think your post leads to the question: why do organizations fail at delivering this promise, when Dribbble exemplifies it?

    Finally someone who understands it a bit more instead of always being negative about it. It's always a matter of HOW you use something for you, that's it. Thanks Keenan for that post.

    Posted my thoughts on what Dribbble is really all about. tl;dr — don't underestimate this simple little service.
