Car: Are you kidding?



So I figured since I'm starting to get used to DS, and I'll be spending so much time on the forums, why not improve my skills? So if we have this designers forum, then we could
critique each others designs,
get inspiration,
we could learn a whole lot from each other,
also I think it would attract some new people (not saying that we alrady don't have new people).
This might not work out, but it's better than my other idea, right?

Ok, thanks. thumbs_up.gif
Wait, should I put the suggestion in the Alt.Binaries forum, or are you saying we can have this Designer's forum?

I think he means just put whatever you have in the Alt.Binaries as a new topic.

I'd be more willing to back up your "Design Forum" idea if you had better grammar.

Awesome! That's better than nothing.

A certain place in a certain state....who ever said I went to school?

CD09.. word of advice... it takes a lot more than 32 posts to come around a forum and suggest changes. Sit tight, and when in Rome, do as the Romans do. Or here, while at DS, do as the jackasses do. Even I don't have enough cred to do anything. Do anything stupid and you're sure to get eaten alive. So proceed with caution. Also, you're 17 years old, I imagine you haven't graduated high school yet, another reason no one will take you seriously.

Even if he was a 35 year old professional with impeccable grammar I wouldn't take his suggestion, because without a decent-sized community of forum members, a subforum will wither and die very very quickly. And we simply don't have enough people who would give two craps about a design forum.

I'll be interested in a design forum once I start taking college design classes and learning the programs. In a way I somewhat wish we did have one, just so I could see what other designers out there are working on.

So between you and him, that makes two. And I know Hexagone has an interest so that's maybe 3. A couple other stragglers might make it 4 or 5 semi-regular contributors, tops. Yeah, I don't feel unjustified at denying this request.

Your advice is heard and noted mung35, but if I do get eaten alive here, I could always go to another forum; however, I would miss all you guys here, even though I haven't been here that long, I've gotten used to you guys. Anyways, I think I could handle getting poned, as long as I don't get banned, I'll be fine. smile.gif By the way, I've just moved to Cary, NC. I'll be going to Greenhope High School as a junior. I did take some drafting classes, but they were more focused on basic engineering stuff, so I had to teach myself how to design cars and such in the program (called ProDesktop 8.0, for those interested). That wasn't going so well, so now I'm teaching myself Photoshop (that's how I made my avatar). I expect I should be able to have my pics uploaded onto a host site, and also have the subforum started within the next week. And Clark, please don't eat me alive, I promise to be (relatively) nice!

Also is there a way to raise awareness about this possible subforum?

Not my intention to eat anyone alive. I'm blunt and honest, not mean. I apparently am perceived that way around here though...oh well.

What you're percieved as by myself (and other various noobs) is a vicious, forum monster...In a good way I mean 22, 892 posts? Man that's a lot of posts, and I've read some of them, they're thought out posts.

Ooh ouch, that burns! But no, ass-kissing wasn't my primary goal. My primary goal was to inquire into the issue that this thread is titled. What I said to Clark was how I really do percieve him, so it was truth. Really now man, you shouldn't lash out at me like that unknowingly, it ain't right.

I see CD09 getting banned here under 100 posts... I've seen this pattern one too many times.

Damn you people are harsh!

Give the poor guy a chance. He obviously isn't trying to create any drama and he's trying his best to fit and and have some fun on ds.

...I don't think this was harsh. We didn't run him out of dodge with pitchforks and torches, we just said that this idea isn't really feasible. Some other people piped in with some firm but friendly advice that he's too new to have much influence. I don't see much of an issue here?
