I'll be straight forward. There's a brand new forum at
http://www.designepts.com - Click Community, then the community topics
at the bottom and sign up.
If you're interested....cool, check it out and join.
We're a start up design/consulting firm just hoping to reach our peers.
Those sincerely interested in design, no matter what the software or
product please stop by and browse.
Hunh!?! There isn't even enough to reply to or participate in or even react
to!!!!!! How about you guys show something of what you're made of, some of
the work you've done that could possibly inspire our interest. Have you done
anything? Do you know anything? Could you post the evidence? Here, or on
your own website, would be acceptable.
Yours truly, designer-in-waiting,
Like I mentioned it's a brand new site. I'm just trying to get the word
out a little. It will improve. Right now we're just trying to make
steady progress. In hope's of becoming successful in the future.
The website is not complete and still need work. But the forums are
open for all design related discussions.
I certainly understand that you are trying to promote your company, however,
if you'd lurked awhile, gone to news.newusers.questions or even briefly
acquainted yourself with what newsgroups are, tried to appreciate what was
going on here, before trying to drag people away to your little, nearly
nonexistent, private domain, you might have done it in a strategically
different way. You might have decided that you'd worm your way into our
confidence before springing it on us that you were simply a smelly
commercial opportunist, trying to use an existing, longstanding, viable
forum for your own private, commercial interests. In so doing, you might, at
least have made a modicum contribution. At this point, you've 1) made no
contribution, 2) tried to draw people away from a proven source of help, 3)
offered a "potential", possibly "future" source of all good things, if only
people will flock to you. (David Koresh must have had a pitch like that.)
Anyway, we're all waiting for you to prove you got it... something....
anything at all that would coax, lure, cajole or charm. You could start by
posting the typical CV or a portfolio of design/modelling accomplishments, a
list of happy clients, gram's home phone number so we could call and find
out what a good little boy you were. Anything that might anchor you in the
real world. But, what I've seen so far smells funny and leaves a bad taste.
Especially becoming a "member" of a sham group. And leaving any contact
information after signing an agreement. It's all for you, boy, all for you.
don't see what we clear out of this business!?! Not even a free toaster!
(Maybe a screen saver of the flying toaster with the ETPOMS banner [or
whatever your freaking name is] on it.)

Thanks for your input. I myself didn't put you down' in anyway for your
first reply, so i didn't think your sarcastic remarks were necessary.
But thats how you communicate on something you disagree with, and thats
I am in no way trying "worm" my way in, or am i trying to "drag" anyone
away from these newsgroups. I've been reading these newsgroups for a
long time and and have found much of great help and info. I've even
posted a couple questions in the past. I may not have contributed to
the extent you have but i do understand whats going on here.
The post was not initially about the company. It was more about having
created a forum, and saying "Hey all, there's a new forum to discuss
design and and related topics".
So have a good day. And because of you ranting about how wrong i was
for my initial post, this thread has gone on way to long.
