Critiquing suggestion

Permanent Linkby Eka on Wed Apr 01, 2009 9:25 pm

This is a post that I've been meaning to write for a while. It is not inspired by anyone in particular, but my own critique toward the criticism we have found in many communities as a whole. I am not a stellar example of giving or receiving good criticism. So, hopefully this post will encourage myself, and perhaps others, into a more… shall we say, “efficient“ attitude toward criticism.

Drawing and writing, for business, personal, or even entertainment like fan fiction and fantasy, as soon as we involve the word “Art”, it becomes a personal thing. We cannot help but make strong emotional connections to our creative work. For us, it is more than work, it is a performance, an unique presentation of ourselves, whether we express ourselves through writing, pictures, sculpture, music, or more. This, of course, is not a bad thing. But it can lead to conflicts when we feel that our “personal stuff” is being pointed out as a problem or a shortcoming in someone else's perspective. Some people m...

Another blog on recent events about this site!

Permanent Linkby Eka on Sat Feb 28, 2009 5:31 pm

First thing first. Pleasing everyone is hard!

It doesn't really matter what we do, there are no real way to please everyone. For some, this place work just right for them, don't want to change a thing, for other, it just isn't what they are looking for. Now, why is that? I think this should show you a thing or two.

If you have been here long enough, you should know that preferences really have a rating attached to it. Just because you like something, doesn't make you a better person. It make us different (or something else ).

Let's take some time to...

It's an illusion!

Permanent Linkby Eka on Tue Jun 10, 2008 11:20 pm

Well, quite a bit of drama there...

Actually, there isn't really any. This site have about 10,000 daily unique visitors, I would be really surprised if we don't see some drama once in a while.

Put that in perceptive.... a regular sized high school have about 1,000 people, and on average there is a detention every 3 days. Depends on area, of course.

Not to say when we see one, it isn't important. But let's over fact, over motive, over personal preference for a moment.

Let's just look at what we want here.

This site, as originally intended, is for people who like vore, and want to see more of it in one way or another, or want to add more to it, in one way or another.

If someone doesn't want to do any of those, it is probably better that they don't be here.

Why do we see so many reactions to thing like this?

Well, there is this... Randy Pausch saying... ( see his video here...

Conclusion from vore

Permanent Linkby Eka on Tue Oct 16, 2007 11:15 am

Anyway, not sure how many people have notices the effect of vore have on people in a real life level, but from what I can see. There seem to be more harm then good so far:

1. Lost of interest on other things.

This doesn't happens to me. I don't find myself losing interest in other things, and for most people, it doesn't matter! Everything you enjoy doing, pretty much take your interest away from other things.

However I'm talking about the more extreme effect of this particular interest. For a lot of people. Vore is enjoyable because it stimulates them in a more sexual level. In fact, overwhelm your senses if you have a strong imagination. The overwhelming part is what bothering me. Each time you pushes close to the 'limit' you will need to seek for something even stronger to stimulates you, to a point where more 'normal' thing no longer interest you. While there are other hobby that does the same thing, a sexual fetish, arguably, does this more.

2. Unbalanced partitions...

Overcoming Shyness
October 9th, 2007 by John Wesley

All my life I’ve been an inwardly directed person. While some people like to think out loud, I prefer to process the world internally, answer my own questions, and come to a conclusion before speaking up.

This personality trait has benefits and drawbacks. On the positive side, it’s a source of strength as a writer and analytical thinker. Without it I wouldn’t have taken an interest in books/writing and this site wouldn’t exist. On the downside, my tendency to keep everything inside is responsible for one of my major weaknesses — shyness.

Understanding Shyness

Shyness is rooted in fear — an irrational fear of speaking up and being humiliated or ignored. Why are some people so afraid of speaking out? In my mind the main causes...
