    lol, understandable! unfortunately that's one of the big troubles of communicating online... it's hard or difficult to express the proper tone or intent etc...

    totally wasn't trying to be condescening or snotty or whatever...

    my point mainly was I've seen plenty of negativity on other boards.... also seen aggressive behaviour and name-calling etc... along with the usual amounts of 'this sucks, or that sucks....

    one of the things i've generally liked about DesignerNews is that it's been more or less positive.... I can often find decent design links here...especially about figma, which I love...

    anyhow, hope that clears things up... :)

    i suppose it might be. but it's all to easy to forget that you're talking to other actual people with feelings. some folks can be pretty awful online, simply because they know there's no repercussions. I wouldn't call it 'jumping through hoops'. just be decent :)

    ditto. Did the same thing :)

    I've seen more than a few disparraging threads, 'this place sucks' rants etc... I don't have a lot of time or patience for negativity and bashing culture, so posts like these that are proactive and positive definitely get my attention.

    I really like this community. Much in the same way I was (and still am) a long-time user/poster over on QBN/Newstoday... and while that place has definitely dropped off in design significance over the decades (been on there close to 20 years i think..it's more about keeping in touch with a few old-timers like myself) DesignerNews actually gives me all the 'real' design info and updates and posts i'm looking for on a daily basis...

    while there are problems with this place, the upside definitely out-weighs any negatives i think... it's a decent design forum, and i've found PLENTY of useful links and ideas and that makes this place valuable to me.

    I'll take your points to heart, and try and upvote more often, and I'll try and post the odd thing too :)
