So seeing as we've got to review something here, I suppose I'll review the video you posted in your signature. You probably won't even read this, but hey, you wouldn't read it even if I posted anything else, so here we go.

This is where the controversy begins.. Mainly about Office for Mac 2011 and where I got it from..

No one cared where you got it from. You brought up where you got it from ("somewhere online"), and then people wondered why you had brought it up in the first place.

Proof that I purchased Office for Mac 2011...

We don't really care if you purchased it, got it off The Pirate Bay, or got it from a mystic sea turtle, we'd just like to see a mock that'd look nice on screen.

Neil Jones, dbl, and many others on the website were the people who gave 'rude' and 'negative' feedback.

Oh no, the negativity of... constructive criticism? Neil in particular was trying to help you through both of your mocks. But instead of taking the criticism, running with it, and making the mock better, you got "so fed up" and eventually left the site because of all the "rude" and "negative" feedback that was just trying to help you make your mocks better.

Really? I thought it was based in Zanzibar. Typical American ignorance for you, I suppose. Wink

Anyways, that video (and my post, because I'm self-grading) gets a 2/5 because it doesn't really showcase the mock all that well.
Graphic designer. Electronic idiot.

Ok! OK! I have learnt a lesson today about mocking. Calm down. I am leaving the site, but I know all the criticism you gave me.

Yes, I know!
Soo pointing out that Office 2011 isn't generally used for designing graphics is considered 'rude'? I shrug.


Yes Office 2011 is not great for doing mocks but I tried it (and failed it).

Would you be so kind as to get off your high horse please. You wanted criticism as asked for in your original post. I gave you some. And then you decided you didn't like it so you spontaneously decided it was rude and then buggered off to put some half-soaked "poor me" video on Vimeo when the real issue here is you don't like criticism.

That's fine but if you will post work in a public forum like this and the forum decides that your work is crap, you will be told that it is crap and nine times out of ten why it is crap. Remember this is a TV Presentation Forum so most people will look at a mock from that point of view. Unfortunately if you're going to fly off the handle at the slightest criticism, I feel you shouldn't be posting them at all.

Quite frankly after your behaviour in this thread I don't see why anybody would want to critic anything you post again.

The full story (short)

I went on the site in May to create mocks with other people despite me being inexperienced. I wanted to learn from other people....

It didn't go well.

Want More Information about why I am leaving? PM me or do something else

Is this supposed to be a promo for some kind of drama? If so, you've said this is the whole story and the short story whilst giving no story at all. I certainly won't be watching, but it certainly is mysterious. 1/5


(p.s. The link in your signature is still buggered.)

Oh, ok. I may fix it soon. As said before, you can PM or something.

The reason why I decided to leave was because I did not understand the controversy that was going on, I was worried that I was in trouble or something, and I think that I am still in trouble.

What is going on? No this is not a promo for a new drama, but I think something might be happening.

thanks tv forumers - i came here to be able to make mocks with others, and now here we are, in a growing controversy, second vimeo vid will be uploaded soon. - from your (angry) friend, sharitall twenty one

There is no controversy created by anybody on this forum, any that has been stirred is by yourself and while I hate to use the following term in any regard towards any other member, I have to say I suspect we may be feeding a troll here.

But just in case, let's summarise anyway. So you posted a mock. It looked like the right style of the era you chose, its problem was it was too wordy. You changed it based on the feedback and it ended up looking semi-decent. Not a total disaster but still needed more work but was actually better than some stuff that gets posted in here. You then come along three weeks later and post another mock that I said was too far in the other direction where it wasn't wordy enough, but you were more concerned with telling anybody who cared that you got your Office software from somewhere in Birmingham (I presume from your text additions on your Vimeo post you live in Alabama in the US?). You then do a Penn & Teller act by disappearing and reappearing and start posting cryptic messages and random observations that bear no relevance whatsoever to the rest of the comments in the thread.

TL;DR - so you posted a crap mock. So what? Who cares? If you have any ounce of creativity at all this is the place to nuture it. You're not the first person to post a crap mock in this forum and you sure as hell won't be the last. You will probably post 20 crap mocks, 20 mediocre ones, 10 "not bad" ones and if you're lucky, one "outstanding" mock.
