True. You're not attacking anyone. I haven't seen you get heated, very recently, although you did have some moments when you first arrived. It's nothing overt that you're doing. It's subtle and kind of hard to define. It's found in instances like over-stating your credentials in a thread where your professional advice was completely uncalled for. You have a collection of prominent egocentricities that are irksome. Sometimes, like that technicolor rainbow abortion you had as an avatar, you're receptive to correcting them. Still, it took a really long time for you to change it and people remember shit like that.
I've rarely seen you give feedback to much of anyone but you ask for it, a lot. You seem to think nothing of posting a mix in DJ Promotion. You don't listen to anyone else's work (unless you like the mainstream track list) and, not being a DJ, chances are that I'll post in people's threads there, before you will. You do the same thing in Music Producer's Promotion.
What I've mentioned are just examples. They are by no means, a complete picture. The problem you're having is that no one here likes ego. They love substance. You might not be mean, but you come off like a very shallow douche-bag.
Could you phrase that into a form of a question please? I'm just kidding. What I will say is that you're obviously not in some of the same forums that I participate in. I spend a lot of time in the Music Producers Promotion forum commenting on new tracks all the time. I also am in in the Music Production Forum a lot talking with other like minded individuals about different production techniques, tools, and other resources that will assist all of us in improving our productions. I made mention of this before that sometimes I call special attention to myself especially in the the Music Production forum for the sole purpose that the people in there have more credentials / experience in making music than I can ever dream of. And sometimes they hang out in there almost exclusively. Regardless, I listen to a lot of other dj's sets and I listen to a lot of new tracks posted in the Promotion forum and comment on them as well. I'm not so self consumed with my own mixes/music that I can't enjoy someone else's tunes. What I would like to say is that I think that if your going to publicly state your opinion that it needs some substance behind it and it needs to be accurate because a lot of what your saying is untrue and and not at all how I participate on the board- with the exception of my rainbow looking avatar that took time to take down.
