Jeezus H. Christ with a hand grenade! Just what the Hell is wrong with people 'round here lately? Somebody spends free time making up a pic and shares it with the rest of us and all some can do is tear it apart with boringly unoriginal, not-funny-in-the-first-place, emo FanBoy snide little remarks. Indeed, some seem to live exclusively for ripping other's work. How happy I am for them that they found the one task in the Universe they are so uniquely qualified for so very early in life. Good for Them! Applause! Applause! Aren't they quite the little cutting edge trend setter, now? Mama must be so very proud!

People send in PotDs for others to enjoy. Their thought processes probably runs along these lines. 1) This is a pretty cool game and I like it a lot. 2) This mod makes the game so much more fun. 3) Hey! That would make a really nice desktop! 4) Lemme just tinker with the gamma and sharpness and...there! 5) Hey! That sorta looks like that other guy's PotD from last week. I know! I'll send this in and share it!

The negativity and outright rudeness masquerading as 'critiques' displayed towards people's PotD pics around here is downright disgusting. Killa does a good job with the PotD's. The submitters, whose talents vary in level admittedly, are sharing something from DoW/WA/DC with the rest of us that they spent free time making. Why should they continue to do that when all they are gonna get is the same people making the same tired, unfunny, stupid negative remarks again and again?

How long will it be before they say 'enough' and go somewhere else? How long will it be before others start to say, 'Ya know, that used to be a pretty cool site, but now all they do is bash each other over there.'? How long will it be after that until FileFront decides to close DoW/WA/DC Files because no one comes here, anyway. Think it won't happen? Go take a good look around FileFront then. Isn't hard to find sites that are closed. I wonder how many of them had people who just gave up and let the losers have the place? I wrote it. I meant it. Anybody who doesn't like it, PM me. I am not hard to find at all.

If you don't give people criticisms, how can they improve?

Try making maps or mods and they still complain as if theyre paying for it.;) Those that submit photos have it easy imo.

People ar ungrateful and must be purified in the all cleansing vat of toenails and earwax juice. Things are always going to get criticized, someone is always going to be unhappy with something even if it's the best thing since rocket propelled thunder pants. But there is a certain level of dacorum and tact that should be taken when your trying to get your point across. The people that just go 'This is shit' or 'No Screenies, No download' are not helping the people out who actually have tried the things and actually HAVE decent points to make. The problem with PotD is that the game has been out since 2002 and most of the pics have been done. So obviously new mods are going to have lots of PotDs because they haven't been done before. People complaining 'huh, just another 'Insert MOD here' should realise this. Maybe the PotD should have a rest or even call it a day. I'm greatful to people like Wasturr who spend countless hours making DoW a better game. Without these people the game would've been very boring a long time ago with DCs current imba abusiveness. Thats why I to try and do things like tournies and campaigns to make DC more fun, but even then people can't be bothered to show up etc. If it doesn't suit them or it's not want they want, it's shit. These are the kind of people that should just leave DoW alone and stick to Tetris. They make the community a nasty place and give the people with valid points and contributions to maybe improve things a bad name.

Uhm You put in how the ones that make the PoTD think. The problem is, everyone who makes a PoTD thinks his is unique, his is great. he fact is, that is rarely the case.

Iron_Daemon;4132466constructional criticism...

theirs a fine line between criticism and constructive criticism. It seems most people cross the line without thinking. However, i was considering making a news post based on this as i feel it might get out of control... And yes, i agree with stevie boy, as it true the game itrself has been out for years and its hard to come up with original ideas... But that doesnt mean that you have to critisise every picture just because the idea has been done before...

Then maybe POTD should be disabled, I always thought that it was pointless. :uhm:

After that, no one would even watch them. Remember when they were once disabled. They didn't get more than ten ratings.
