It has always been expected that those who choose to go beyond the average downloader and become involved with skinning and its community to be more responsible with their daily interactions with the other active members. The higher you climb in rank the more involved your interaction with the site should be.
A drive by " this sux" comment from some unknown downloader is to be expected, as typically thier interaction with the site is minimal and so is their knowledge of skinning and its critique,
The higher up you go in ranks the more involved your critiques should be IMO, especially if the critique is negative in reply. Why?
As The community leaders,elders, and most active we have been recognized as being amongst the most knowledgeable and dedicated to perpetuating the skinning community, we should be taking up the task to offer real critique on things or issues we see that need fixed, how are we helping the community with single line negative comments? Is any one benefitting from them? I would hope to see more Involved and helping critiques from all ranked members and especially upper level members.
Me if I dont have the time to fully post a neg critique I will not post any thing til I can.More often than not I will take it to a PM so they can do the necessary repairs without the need to drag it out in public... If i love a skin "" dude this rox" or some equal sentient comes in to play. As I am a simple person, my joyous reposts are often reflected with short but happy comments.
