I just want to point out my initial thoughts on this post. I am not trying to offend anyone so please don't take it that way. I truly respect everyone that dedicates their time and knowledge to helping out others who are just starting in the hobby. I have not been a member of this forum for as long as some, so take this for what it is worth...
From the poll:
"Yes, both buttons would be useful and concise. Make it happen".
This option is obviously what you want.
"Yes, but only a thumbs up button. I fear rejection".
This option implies that I do not want the same thing that you want because I am weak and can't take criticism.
"No, I would rather clutter up a thread with my less significant comments".
This option implies that that I am oblivious or something. Like my comments don't matter.
The reason that I have become a part of this forum is because everyone I have encountered so far has been really supportive. I like the posts that reply with "hey, that's pretty neat" or something. Not a big fan of a willy-nilly, generic "like". Or...if I post something that I am kind of proud of and someone dislikes it. I have never been in that situation because this is really the first social media that I have been part of.
Either "helpful" or "not helpful" might be a better description of a post critique. I am still learning and want to help others who are in the same boat as I am. If someone asks a question, I would really like to answer it if I can. If I spread false information, I would love it if someone would correct me with the appropriate answer.
Again...I really love this forum. The people here are THE BEST in my limited experience. I just want to be helpful to someone else by answering questions and posting pictures and videos that can help and inspire others.
Please, don't take this the wrong way. I think that, for the most part, the members on this forum just want to help others. What is the most productive way that this can be accomplished?
