For GMC2

Thursday, September 6, 2012 by doortech1 | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

I got a very considerate message from GMC2 about yesterdays antic. I decided to apologize publicly instead of directly. The reason is because I probably ticked off more people than GMC2.

 I will start by saying I am sorry I flew off the handle. I do not deal well with any form of critisizm and that is my burden , not anyone elses. I do have thin skin and knew from the start I would have trouble with the feed back. I am trying to learn to skin and deal with comments at the same time and it can get the better of me.

 

I do agree with your comments about the text in sentinel, and just hated hearing it outloud from a stranger. I had spent a lot of time, deleting hundreds of pictures I could not tolerate and I guess I rushed it off the printing press, but, I had not posted a skin in a long time and was very anxious to do so.Again, my fault, no one elses. I regret pulling sentinel off, but not the rest because in hindsite, as I improve, I saw the roughness of my previous submissions.You all are not missing out on much there, so why care!

I want to also apologize to those who are being slammed for giving me high praise,they were just trying to keep me from doing what I did, quit and leave. I feel bad that I somehow put them in that position to where they felt obligated to ate me high. I know the skin is not a ten, not even a seven, but atleast , I thought, a five or six. So, I was not pleased putting those people in the line of fire for being sensitive to my needs. They did this out of friendship and were just trying to support me, sorry guys.

Closing in on an end soon! But , first, thank you GMC2 for your offer to help and it was a grand gesture. He offered to redo my skin faults without changing my work. Thats a very mature attitude for someone I insulted publicly. But, then again, thats how Vamps and I got to know each other, worked out for me, I got a great teacher. I have no doubt you could offer great assistance, but I really do want to learn as much as possible without help. It is more gratifying.So , for now I will pass on the offer but with great admiration for a great skinner, who could have just said, good riddens to doortech1. I do not know if I covered all if my dirty deeds, if I missed something , let me know and I will try to amend.

 

 I still feel unsure about how the ratings are given and would agree with DaveBax about his theory of no ratings, except that if I was to become a great skinner, I would probably love ratings, so I see where they are important to other skinners so as not to dis them for their talents by including them in the same category as a newbie with mediocre skins. I hope this can help repair some of the bitterness and will strive to be more tough skinned and a lot less offended by comments. It would be up to you all if you want any of my crappy skins reposted, and I do not know about Sentinel and doing changes, I would feel like I was changing it for others and not myself. I came very close to creating my vision with Sentinel, but fell a little short as usual, but ,I always have next time, although I do not know if I will be accepted at WC at this point. Maybe Deviant Art is where you all want me to go, or hell,probably some of you. Again, I am sorry and have learned from this as I do all things in life. DoorTech1.

 

 Ps. I still do not like Nightmare, but, what the heck do I know. I will add for GMC2, even if it is bad, it still got better ratings than my best, where does that put me on the totem pole!

WinCustomize is known for giving people several chances as we all know this place and how hard it can be for a new member as we all have been there.

I´m sure you´ll have a future around here IF you want it.

A whole lot of modesty and humility is what it takes and it´s hard for me too at times (Ask Jafo )

I see a great skinner in you. I really hope you don´t  **** it up !

Thank you for accepting GMC2. I know it does not remove what I said, but, someday I will make it up to you ,with an attitude adjustment on my part, I hope to make amends to all of WC, you are all very forgiving at WC. Jafo pointed out something I did not remember saying and I am sorry for that also, take care, doortech.

Listen up guy...trials and tribulations abound in life both here and out there in the sometimes real world. You should see some of my earliest work with Rainlendar...they were not very good but...with the help of those who know better than me I improved. Slowly but surely. The best way to do your thing is to take your time, don't rush. Look at my Sysmetrix now. They may come slowly but I do put a lot of work into them and make them as best I can. I've gotten to the point where I can take an smx and do it up nicely with modules and other stuff. Granted it isn't as complex or time consuming as a WB but what the heck..it is what it is. Aside from the text margins your Sentinel is pretty damn good and I have it as I do most of your skins. Stick around Doortech....the funs just getting started. So my advice...he he....next time step back from your 'puter, count to ten and...ready for this....have a beer or a soda or a cookie. Then get back to work. That said.....keep 'em coming dude!

BTW...put that stuff back into the gallery. I ain't finished grabbing up your stuff. lol

Thank you Uvah, that is well put and great advice. I just feel I may have ruined it already. I have some soul searching to do to figure out why I say the things I do. I really justt want to be accepted and be a part of WC and its large family, I do not no how to fix anything at this point.Everone hear has been very forgiving and I feel I have pushed thelimits this time. I would be forever trying to repair things if at all even possible. I sure can burn a bridge though cant I!

The only meds I take are for asthma. Doubt that'll help you.      So refill yours and get to work.

Thumbs up for this post.....

Jafo looks for the smiley......

Doortech...if you wish you can PM me which particular galleries your stuff was in and I can restore them.

 

On the whole, this place is a pretty neat place to hang out [but I'm prejudiced]...

You just did! It's all about attitude and being big enough to accept and recognize when you screw up...and then being a big enough man to admit it in public. I think you can put the past behind you now and move on.

Here's a tip...when your going to respond to a post comment or gallery comment...write it out in notepad first...then let it sit and ponder what you just wrote...then if you feel it's not being harsh or abusive...even though the comment your responding to may be...then post it. The whole thing is to be a bigger man than the one your responding to. Let harsh comments roll off your back.

Now...there are people here that don't get all that and just continue to push their ego's and harsh comments...best thing to do there is just ignore them and you'll do fine.

Being a good skinner is fine, great in fact, but being a good community member is far greater.

I'm glad to see you are moving in that direction.

when your going to respond to a post comment or gallery comment...write it out in notepad first...then let it sit and ponder what you just wrote...

 WebGizmos gave me that advice about 3 years ago. Came about as he was teaching me to make Docks so I was in contact with him often. He also told me I would be a good skinner and to make WB's. So I do and get better with each one. It's all called inspiration and can be obtained right here.

What I was going to send wasn't for a thread but a PM I wanted to send on something i didn't like. Thought it over as suggested and never thought about doing it again. There will always be a bump here and there. Stop for a few minutes and you will realize it really isn't that bad. In fact this is the only place I spend my time and lots of it being retired.

Good for you doortech1 for this post.
