Sometimes people really piss me off, and never is it more prevalent that when someone posts original content. No matter what it is (art, music, comics, fan-fiction, etc…) they created it the way that they wanted it to be and it doesn’t matter whether you think that it’s the best thing since sliced bread or the worst thing since chopped liver you have to remember that IT IS THEIRS. You have no right to make them feel bad about something they were proud enough of and had enough guts to post,to the point of them wanting to and in some cases actually removing their content because they think it is ‘terrible’. If you do this then that person may feel defeated to the point of no longer wishing to create original content and that is a terrible thing because they obviously have a passion for it and enjoy it and if they love what they are doing who are you to criticize them.
So please do NOT discourage other artists, writers, musicians, poets, designers, or any sort of enthusiast because they are just that, enthusiastic about what they do but it takes balls to put something out there for others to judge, and if you shower them with hate the enthusiasm will shrivel up and die, where as if you shower them with praise and constructive criticism then it will flourish and prosper.
