Title: Grate workz!!! Congratz!!!!
Post by: Ludvik Koutny on 2013-07-05, 12:33:18
Hi,

recently, with release of Alpha 5, our forum activity raised a lot and with it also amount of posts, especially in gallery. While i definitely see that as a positive thing, I would prefer if a value of posts on this forum came out of their quality, not quantity. I understand many of you often post comments or congratulations in gallery just to encourage authors to use corona further and to show us as a warm and welcoming community, but i am really starting to be afraid we will become another Evermotion forum.

I would like to ask you all to help improve standards of this forum by putting a little more time into your post, and also not to post just for sake of keeping forum activity up. It would be great, if every post carried something constructive, as it would really add to the value of this forum and make majority of information stored here relevant.

Almost none of the 3D pictures are 100% perfect, and it helps a lot more if you point out what is the weakest aspect of the image or what you personally dislike, so the authors can work on it next time and improve themselves. Or if you just really like the image, then you can describe what is so catching about the image, so author can build on top of that to push it even further.

This is by no means order or a new forum rule, it is just my personal request to you all, and as we are an adult and intelligent community, i am sure most of you will understand what i mean. I would just like to avoid this forum being flooded by the kind of comments i used to name this thread ;)

There are also other sections like general discussion and offtopic, where you can create new discussion about pretty much anything and you are encouraged to do so. If you want to keep forum activity up, that is the way to do it. Some interesting discussions about CG industry, software, hardware, or just funny cat videos or bike riding may come out of this. And even those will still have a lot more value than simple non-constructive congratulations and praising.

Thanks in advance ;)

PS: It would be a good idea to spread this thread around the forum by for example linking it in a reply whenever you feel like the discussion is going down to the Evermotion forum level :)

Strongly agree!!!

I agree, the work in progress section should be the place to focuse on more before posting the final master piece, so everyone can enjoy sharing their helps and comments to improve it the right way and everybody is for a win !

I agree but not agree, it's a little bit elitist.
Basically you're saying that people who doesn't know Corona render, should not post pictures ?
I thought it was a community site, so yes we maybe need a thread with the best of the gallery like CGtalk ?
I mean you can't ask people not to post image when they learn Corona, if so i guess the reputation of this site will fall in a week !!
I understand what you mean but don't you think your post wil be misunderstood ?

No, you clearly do not understand what i mean and... Yes, in your specific case you misunderstood my post.

ok sorry for that.

To clarify it...  i am not talking about gallery submissions but about primitive replies, such as:

"good work"
"nice render"
"nice, congrats"
"great work"
"really good"
"nice work"
"very good"
"very nice"
"wow, nice"
"wow, excellent"
"excellent work"
"excellent render"
"good render"

And similar kind of non-constructive comments.

Heck...  i could even write random Evermotion forum reply generator, and it would still look authentic....

ok ok sorry, understood. I'm french and i just not understand all the post.
So to answer to your post, i think it's a good thing but for the non english people on the forum, it's sometimes not really easy to explain and to give a critic of the image and some other who doesn't speak english at all are just glad to encourage some artist with just a "great work".

Regards.

Oh come on, you could at least try google translate ( http://translate.google.com/ ). I think it's ok to write replies like this:

Good render, but I would change....../recommend...../you should definitely change these settings:.......

This doesn't cost you much.

Good evening

I would say that Corona is a great rendering engine for both speed setting.

Congratulations go exclusively from the manufacturer of Corona Renderer.

Greetings and Thanks

You are more than welcome to discuss it ;) Even such things as this could yield some interesting points of view.

Yeah, people can be constructive in their comments, but asking this from everybody could lead to no answers at all. just my 2cts

So far it is working, average project here in gallery gets SIGNIFICANTLY more comments than for example on evermotion, and most of them are constructive ones.

Yes you are right, i've been lurking around last couple of weeks...I was just saying that I saw this happening before. Of course nobody wants another evermotion lol.
Btw great work loving it, can't wait to see the development of this wonderful engine going forward...thank you!

Well, I would say the same will eventually happen, it's simply tied to rate of content consumption nowadays. With the amount of work posted on Evermotion, and system it's moving, it's pointless to participate in any form of discussion,
even more so, when people really just want to show the work and won't follow up with answers.

At the moment, it might feel like (albeit growing big day by day) family sort of community, but it will sooner or later morph into the same. There is zero reason why this forum would follow absolutely different curve of evolution
than all the other ones, esp. when other, much bigger forums (like CGTalk) followed very similar fate.

Last but not least, not that anyone cares about rules anyway :- ) I presume no one ever read this properly.

Well, one thing that won't happen though for sure is the ever popular Ever trend "Plz sir kindly send me whole scene to abx@xyz.com". It's my instant association with Evermotion, nothing describes it better.

I was about to repeat my request for like button here on forum, but seems Keymaster likes how things are now, so i guess, there's no point in doing that :]

I really want to congratulate you guys to your great job. Corona is really awsome.

At the moment im thinking of using it in a bigger commercial project that will start soon.
But this job will last till next year and the current licences will expire at the end of the year.

Can you tell what your plans for the near future, especially from 01.01.2015 are?

youcan imagine that its not very comfortable to get licencing issues with your renderer in the middle of a project ;)

Well in doubt and if you can, use Alpha 6 as this is a free version that should stay that way.

great workz! good post! love your signature rawavalanche....  it sounds like "I loved corona when it was free"...

aside from that little note, I am a self declared corona junkie. everytime we search for corona, some beer comes up.

Hi everyone,
as I see it and for the jobs that place, more constructive comments would be welcome (especially to me because I'm still a wimp).
To avoid this you could leave the gallery section and use it as images rewarded by administrators or those with more likes, where the comments do not find much space. While using the WIP section as a general container to post images being processed and final images. Two containers that are very different, it's a bit of confusion.
As an Italian user, many of us are registered at https://www.c4dzone.com/it/, I invite you to visit it.
Mine is just an opinion, the directors can also not take note. ;) ;) ;)
