Re: Should concrit be allowed?

I'm not trying to start wank here, but I'm sure someone's not going to like what I have to say either way.

The thing is, for every a!a out there who don't want concrt, they're posting their work on a public forum where anyone can see. The moment you do that, people will be judging your work, and saying what they want about it. You may not like it, but that's the reality of it.

Sure you can say "I don't want concrit" and the more sensible anons will leave it there. However there are people who are going to ignore that and give you concrit anyway. There's no reason why they shouldn't; it's the internet and they have freedom of speech. Also keep in mind that it works both ways. They have the right to give you concrit if they want, but you also have the right to ignore what they say if you don't want concrit. There's no reason why you need to read that concrit and do as it says if you didn't want it.

Also, for everyone who says that it can be insulting, I think you're confusing flaming for concrit. Saying "Your characters are OOC." without any reason is just rude; it's not helpful at all. Yet if you were to say "I love everything, but I'm confused with why Nation X did Action Y. Maybe you could explain their motives and thoughts more so that I can understand what they're doing to do, if it's not too much trouble?" this is a lot more reasonable, and less likely to offend anyone (not saying it can't, it's just less likely to). Proper concrit should isolate the problem and provide some advice to fix it. That's the difference between insults/flames and concrit.

Again, not likely that everyone will do this. Rude anons will be rude, they won't see a reason to be polite. People will do what they want, and anons will have their own assumed default. We really can't change that as much as most of us want to.

Says otherwise. And you're only bringing up what many others have already said, only to slap a tone argument on it.

You're the first anon I've ever met to tell me that "I'm not trying to start wank here, but" would suggest otherwise. Not that I'm complaining, I'm merely confused. Normally when I give an opinion wank goes off from it, the only exception is when I start up saying I'm not trying to start wank then I always seem to get sensible replies/arguments.
