Fu--- tired of some icontests...  
I'll probably sound like a fuc--- bitch (yes, you can blame PMS today for that). And maybe I'll even upset a few of my friends in here (which I'm really sorry if I do! Nothing written in here is direct to you!), but I really need to vent or I'll explode!

I'm so tired of some icontests and their mods... I'm tired of excuses for not posting results for weeks... I'm tired of excuses for deadline extensions of extensions of extensions so their friends can finish their icons (it sure sounds like that sometimes)... I know sometimes RL can be a pain and it can really make our internet schedulle go down the toilet... but that's why there are MODS and helpers... I fell cheated when I worked my ass out on my schedulle (both online and on RL), just to keep facing those kind of things ALL THE TIME!

Once or twice, okay, we get... RL is out there and connections are lost from time to time... I ended up not joining a bunch of great icontests because of those reasons myself... but there must be something fundamentally wrong if it happens day after day after day for weeks and months and the mods don't do nothing else beside giving excuses...

That's one of the main reasons I stopped joining some icontests... not that they are all like that, but I got a little too tired from dealing with those few problematic ones that I ended up focusing my muse and energy on different kind of graphic challenges...

*hug* I know, it can be frustrating! I've never encountered anything like that on here yet, but I've had similar experience on other sites. Sucks :(

I had this experience before lj as well... one of the reasons I've left that forum, actually... =/

I know what you mean... And I'm tired of this too. It bothers me even more when I see mod posting in her personal lj and not bothering to post results in icontest community.

Ah! Thank you!!! I really don't like to speak bad about people to my friends like that... I mean, some of my friends have those people at their f-list as well...

But I'm feeling better to know I'm not the only one bothered with those...

Huh... never thought about checking their personal journal... I think I would be even more pissed off if I had, though... =P

I checked her personal journal to find out what was going on because it seemed she abandoned the icontest comm I was a member of...

Fortunately I was eliminated in last round (it was lims comm) and I don't have to worry about delays in posting votings or results :)
And I don't think this comm will live long because many people are irritated about those delays...

It's really frustrating! Those people run like 5, 6 icontests with great ideas BUT I really can't stand anymore...
Thank you for the support! XD

nossa! concordo plenamente...uma das razões pela qual eu participo de icontests só de vez enquando senão eu passo raiva!
haruechan: David Hewlettharuechan on April 3rd, 2010 05:15 pm (UTC)
uffa... desabafar assim é bom! XD

Eu já passei tanta raiva essas últimas semanas que resolvi chutar o balde... simplesmente não vou mais participar desses icontests que só me dão dor de cabeça...

I'm sorry to hear this, buddy, but well, you must make what it makes you feel OK, icons are for fun after all, and that you have to deal with those mods is not cool and the pleasure of making icons goes down :(

But well, you should try some other way of inspiration, like finishing your meme, lol, I'm kidding! XD

Do what it makes you feel better and for al the things you enjoy making graphics!

I am doing what I love... I'm still doing icons, I'm working on a few graphic projects... I'm just tired of a few comms, that's all... I needed to vent...

I haven't forgot the memes... My muse is just too focused on icons theses days, I'm afraid... =/ Hopefully, by the time I finish my next 20in20 entries (I have a quota of 80 icons to do! If I don't drop out of any...) it will give me some time to think about bigger graphics (and bigger projects).
