I cant see how Aculag and Sollthar get -rates on those replies, as they are as honest as they can get.Don't worry. People who are usually first to be insultingly offensively honest deal out -1 for an honest reply the quickest. That's the way it works.

[OFF TOPIC]Is it just me, or are you always drunk and acting like Dr. Phil when you reply to posts on FXhome?

I thought Aculag's post was brutally honest but I also thought he was nice about it, plus I found it hystarically funny along with Solthar's post.
As funny as I thought the first 2 posts were, trust me I was laughing for a while, Solthar it's "almost" unfair to say it that way when you didn't really watch the entire video don't you think? I get why you didn't watch the whole thing though. Like I said... To me it was funny but to a kid I think... it may come across as being a little harsh, hence the reason for the negatives that he gave which I don't think you guys deserve by the way.
This is for some of you guys. It's not to be spiteful or anything like that, it's just a little insight or something to consider is all.
You guys have to realize that you're talking to a young kid who's probably only 14 or 15 years old and doesn't know how to take criticism very well. Take into account that your feedback sounded like one adult speaking to another adult in an "as a matter of fact" attitude, because one guy doesn't care for the other guys work. It's like when you see someone do something wrong. You tell them that they are wrong but you don't tell them how to correct their mistake. You can't expect them to react or even perform very well when you talk to them like that and then just leave them hanging with no inkling as to what they did wrong other than telling them to "put some effort into your films and they'll be watched" Albeit funny to me it was in no way helpful to nerfgunnerz3.
It doesn't tell him why you stopped watching at 30 or 50 seconds and saying that it was quickly thrown together is gonna sound at the very least vague to the kid. Why? Because you're till not bieng helpful. You give him no reason other than what your opinion is and how you feel about it but you don't tell him the "Why" which is what he really needs to hear if he's ever going to improve enough to make a video that you might watch. You do want him to improve right? I sure hope so because as you said... "This is a filmmaking website". If you notice... the kid hasn't responded with any harsh words other than giving you guys some negatives. This tells me that his feelings may have been hurt. I could be wrong though and way off base.
Anyway, I watched the video last night after I got home from having a few drinks and I thought it was funny even though I thought the begining was rather strange. I watched it again this afternoon and I still thought it was funny and yes the begining was still strange. Those kids really liked that drink man. Wow.

I -1d him, he knows it, and he removed it.As I said, it amused me so I left it standing. Some other mod must have removed it - don't even know who.
