Although I don’t agree that this site has become a joke, I do agree that there is a lot of room for improvement. Most of the improvement will have to come from the users. Sharecg has nearly 10,000 registered users. If each user only posted one message per year (And that’s not much), we would be receiving about 30 messages a day. We are closer to 2 or 3. That’s about one message per decade.

If we want to revitalize the forums, we need to make them more user friendly. There are other forums I go to, where I like posting links to my work, posting comments to existing threads, and creating new threads. Everyone is supportive and friendly. I have noticed that some people here either get angry or hurt feelings quite easily, and the thread degrades to something I don’t want any part of very quickly. If I was afraid of being called an idiot or my work being called trash, I wouldn’t post anything here. If someone makes a comment, don’t call them an idiot or imply that their post is a waste of your time. Agree, disagree, or make a suggestion, but be polite. Make everyone, regardless of the skill level, feel welcome.

If we want the administrators to read our comments, and respond to them, it may not be a good idea to imply they are greedy, corrupt, incompetent, or apathetic. If ShareCG was easy to run, we would have a choice of over a dozen web sites where we could upload our content, and “Share the profits”. If I read a post that I believed was a character assassination against me, or a group I belonged to, I would take it personally. I would lose respect for the person who made the post, and not bother reading anything else they posted. If you disagree with a policy, State your opinion on the subject and encourage others to state their opinion too. If one person says that Bryce deserves its own section for content, ShareCG will probably ignore it. If 1,000 people have an opinion, and three quarters of them say that Bryce deserves its own section for content, then ShareCG will most likely add that section.

If you notice someone adding stuff to their portfolio that they don’t own the rights to, report them. When you download something, go back later and add a comment. If someone is loading a lot of little files (such as single texture tiles), send them a polite “Private Message”. If you have junk from years ago, that nobody downloads anymore, remove it. If you have any other suggestions on how we can work together to improve this site, post them.
