I agree. But tbh, I worry that this place will go the way of many forums I’ve seen. Example:
How cute. Core is becoming designmatchmaker.com. The next thing will be people saying how their belief in Jesus has helped them through the unemployment dry spell. And a clique will form around this little group; some will join, others will avoid.
There are good and bad with each. Perhaps a balance of the two is a better option. It certainly does appear that the forum has been vacated by a few regular posters. Without opposing viewpoints, there is no discussion; with no discussion, there’s no opportunity to learn.
And will somebody please light a fire under that “Research” discussion. My god, that’s the best reason I’ve seen for avoiding post-graduate education in my life. It’s so dry in that thread I’m actually hoping a few “sparks” will fly (go get’em Bruce).
"Please note that this is a “guest roundtable” directly involving only our three guests and the moderator. If you have specific questions/comments for the panel, it is possible that they might be incorporated. Contact brutha-at- core77.com. "
Registering to Core worked out well.
Now there are the same useless threads posted by idiots we see everyday on here who want to get there post counts up. You know who you are … loser people who think they know about design and have all day to post because they are not busy designing for a living.
