2008-11-01 [iippo]: It's not pointless. The point of a review is not to tell everyone of something really cool (though most people will use it like this, I imagine), the point is to tell everyone what you think. Loads of people do that with movies ("I went to see That Stupid Movie and it sucked, and this is why, and therefore no one should bother going to see it in my opinion") so if you see anything that annoyed you enough to tell everyone that you think it sucks, you would.
I can understand you probably don't get that a lot from art, but artists do. Sometimes the work other people do is really annoying; sometimes it is made even more annoying by the fact that so many people seem to like it and not see how annoying and stupid it really is. I've had this happen a number of times on ET, but I tend to go by the "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all" -principle in those cases -- but I can name 10 active Elftowners of the top of my head (some of my dearest friends included, so not just trouble-makers either) who wouldn't keep quiet, who would rave off and say "this stuff by That User really sucks, and this is why I think so." That would be a review - but not very helpful for the whole community thing, because it would cause strife and annoyance.
I strongly recommend leaving Elftowners' stuff for the main street features. And it won't be any odder to have an art category and not put ETers stuff on than it is to have a book category and not put ETers writings, or a website category and not put ETers wikipages.
2008-11-01 [Hedda]: It's very pointless with a review saying that an images is bad because anyone see that for themselves with a click. It takes way more time to read a review about it. Unlike a film or a thing that you have to buy before you know it's good.
Generally I don't see much point in doing critics on images at all by using this system (That's why it isn't allowed at the moment). But I do see a point of sending "Hey, this was good!" to people. It's better to use the Invite-functio
A website review works fine for galleries though.
2008-11-03 [iippo]: Ah, I hought we were talking about more than just one image (galleries, exhibitions, websites of artists, etc... which at the moment fit well under 'event' or 'website' categories). You're right, one image review doesn't make sense no matter if it's done by an Elftowner or someone famous - it'd be more like an analysis or feature (like this page does) rather than a review.
2010-02-23 [Daisy le Fleur]: Need new features woman!
2010-02-23 [SilverFire]: Woman is currently away on a mission for 18 months (see her house for details) :3
2010-02-23 [Daisy le Fleur]: Awww man! that would explain the absense.. THank you ;)
2010-10-08 [SilverFire]: YOu should help her out by preparing a load of features and bombarding her in PMs with them. :3 (everyone should, not just Loth >:P)
2010-10-08 [Lothuriel]: hehe....I think I might just do that
2010-10-08 [Linderel]: I haven't been to Elfwood in, like... a year at least o_o
2010-10-09 [Lothuriel]: I need to update mine big time.
2010-10-09 [SilverFire]: I think I deleted mine. <_<
2010-10-09 [Lothuriel]: *gasP*
2010-10-09 [SilverFire]: someone showed me a selection of images that were about to be deleted by the mods for breaking the rules, (rules like 'everything in the image must have an English translation in your description', which is, imo, an absolutely retarded rule anyway) and one image just had a few runes on a sword, and they were deleting it for lack of translation. Another was being deleted for being poor quality because there was a small black line down the left hand of the image. So annoyance at stupid rules, combined with the fact that so little I draw is overtly fantasy/sci-fi anyway, meant I didn't see much point in keeping it. <_<
2010-10-10 [Lothuriel]: I have to agree with you on the stupid rules part. I argued fruitlessly (that's probably mispelled) over this image --> because the mod claimed it was directly copied from this . I tried to explain..yes I copied the armor BUT the face is my husband. I even sent the mod the reference picture I used of Mr. Man, who in fact does look a lot like Karl Urban. The mod eventually threatened to delete my account if I didn't drop it. I deleted my account but, eventually started a new one. Heck, they even threw a fit over my Star Wars fan art because i didn't give George Lucas credit for the characters. Even though, I had clearly stated the Title, author, and that the characters were copyrighted and not my originals from the book The Bounty Hunter Tales. So yeah, I understand your reasoning.
2010-10-10 [Lothuriel]: I would like to note too that if you open the pics side by side, the expression and the facial features are very diff.
2011-03-24 [iippo]: *is complimented by people liking the wiki* I should bring this back to life, now that I'm back to life. But I do love that klingon fanart a little longer :3
2011-04-29 [Lothuriel]: Yes you most certainly should revive us!
2011-04-30 [iippo]: There. :) *is reminded how much fun this is* :D
