    That's fair, and I think you have the right attitude of treating it as a fun little side project. Maybe I've been made a bit too cynical by the Product Hunt/startup culture, where every new product is supposed to be this revolutionary new tool, but often just ends up being a slightly trendier version of last year's cool kid,

    You're not owed positivity just because you did something. I like the design of the project and it might evolve into something great one day, but in its current state it adds very little value practically speaking. I think it's worth calling out cookie-cutter projects like this one if only to encourage people to think a little bit more outside the (tool)box.

    I just thought it was funny to imagine everybody secretly moving to a different community without you knowing about it, like the cool kids not telling you about the after party or something.

    The truth is that the feeling that a community "was better before" is as old as online communities themselves. Complaining about it is like writing angry letters to your local weather station because it's getting colder in November.

    And what's more, he somehow managed to single-handedly accomplish this evil goal without even changing the site itself in any meaningful way! Just goes to show how nefarious he really is…

    I'm wondering what happened with the real design community that used to create valuable content in here. Have they moved to some other platform that I'm not aware of?

    Oh, this is awkward… you… didn't get your invite? We were pretty sure we sent it. Must've gotten lost in the mail? We'll invite you for sure though, don't worry. I mean, it's a pretty exclusive community but I'm almost positive that you made the cut. Maybe just give it a couple more days. Or weeks or months. But you'll definitely get in. I think.

    I use IconJar, works pretty great now that more and more icons designers provide their icons in the IconJar format.

    I'm a bit conflicted about design awards: on one hand they often highlight great work, on the other asking participants to pay makes it clear that they're about making money first, and recognizing good work second.

    Let me be the first to congratulate you on your (future) acquisition by Apple!
