I'm helping people, as approved by Phreaddee. Take it up with him/her if you have a problem.Like how you just spammed four different threads created by people who had nothing to do with you getting your panties up your ass?
But that just wasn't enough for you. You had to come back and let your colors show with this:No. This was literally not even remotely helpful. I only wish I had the ability to unread things.
First off, as you may notice on 80% of users signatures advertising is a constant. Every post I post has my advertisement on it as well. However, what you were referring to was the link I gave. In which case you may have also meant to use the term 'spam', not 'advertise'-Edit: On a sidenote, whats the punishment for advertising on forums like this? Seems kinda shady.
That's when I may have flew off the hinges a bit. To everyone else I apologize if my tone was unsettling in my response.I'd hate for other users to think that it was some sort of actual good advice or something.
Your reply to my response was the 'insult' that set this off-My apologies, I thought this forum was for reviewing websites. I was unaware that it was here to insult website designers and providing no other feedback other than to complain about their work. I suggest you spend some time researching how feedback can be given in a helpful manner, or excuse yourself to a part of the forums that is reserved for anger and insults (assuming one exists). This is not 4chan. Please respect other people regardless of your personal issues.
but it was a review for YOUR website, not theirs- yet you re-posted it and possibly confused them with no regard-1. that's not rude or offensive.
2. and it's not spam
3. and it's not advertising.
And this was not rude:General Rules
1. Rude, offensive or threatening comments will not be tolerated! The WDF (Web Design Forum) staff has a zero tolerance policy on forum wars.
I'd hate for other users to think that it was some sort of actual good advice or something.
But did you? The following evidence would suggest otherwise:Ok. In an effort to keep this thread on track so that the people who were being decent and helpful can continue doing so, I'm just gonna let it go.
Why an experienced web developer feels the need to come into a newbie area to shit on fresh designers is beyond me, but if that's what makes him feel good about himself and it's what the mods support, then more power to him. I suppose the lesson I learned here is that if I ever feel the need to respond to a "review my website" post, I should simply link them to a website with paid templates, tell them they're a beginner and they should give up on trying, and just use something someone better than them made.
Technically feedback can be as simple as "its horrible" - check your dictionary, then yourselfwebstudent123's post was not feedback. Feedback takes the ability to intelligently write out your thoughts and opinions into sentences, in order to explain them to another person.
At no point in his reply did he say my post was helpful-I'm helping people, as approved by Phreaddee. Take it up with him/her if you have a problem.
No, no navigation is just that, it does not 'mean' anything. Your reply should have simply been: 'im working on the nav' or something to that effect, not a smart a** remark like "thanks (i guess)"Also no navigation clearly means that I haven't created the navigation yet, but thank you (I guess?) for pointing that out.
Before I go into why I think templates are a very viable option for many reasons, especially for those who may only need to utilize one website...Holy poo. I leave for a while for school and some projects and come back to this. BTW.. I'm with Phreaddee, I'm more offended by the use of templates. I have been doing consulting work with some guys who use them trying to slap there wrists to stop them.
Because it’s cheating... isn't it?? I’m offended by them because I see many people use nothing BUT templates and say “hey look what I did"... no... look what someone did FOR you. I have worked with 2 other people who want their template to do this or that... well... guess what... it cant.. or in fact it CAN but I have to strip away so much that it becomes something that you should have just paid me for in the first place because now the cost is double because I have to find out what this template designer did, because out of the 3 I have assisted with all 3 are coded COMPLETLY different, and fix it to do what you want.Before I go into why I think templates are a very viable option for many reasons, especially for those who may only need to utilize one website...
Why is it you are so against templates, or "offended" by them for that matter?
I imagine you have defended this position in the past, if so please link me to that thread.
