Valiant words Mr. Raccoon, valiant words. Yes, there does indeed seem to be a lot of garbage submissions that make it through but that's unlikely to change.
How about leaving critical reviews on honest yet crappy work? This will not only deter uncommitted artists but will encourage the committed to clean up their act.
Also by telling spammers not to spam you're giving them what they want: a reaction. Perhaps if spam is simply ignored it will go away.
True, but then again, I never said exactly to not spam. I said to at least make it worthwhile and "classy".
Also, I do leave reviews on some things I feel are committed but aren't really 100% in my eyes, because I want to see them get better or "die trying" because I think they can make it. However, I've just seen utter garbage in the new submission under judgement the past two months or so, so there's definitely not even any spam flash worth my time.
Also, despite my leanings to create anything of value, I usually spend a lot of time on it before I even decide to post and then I fear my own stuff doesn't meet par. So, I'm sitting on a sharp fence post in regards to stuff, but, I stand behind my position. I just really want to have people submit some good stuff, y'know? I get crazy seeing pretty awful things.
