    I'm not sure if this is allowed
    if it isn't please just close it.

    I have been working on this project titled, "Ghosts control my mind.
    it is a thesis project about the concept of happiness through the exploration of different parts of the human condition.

    It uses poetry as well as different formats of photography.
    I have decided to start a campaign to help fund its release and if you would like to learn more about it
    it can be viewed here: <Link removed>

    Ok, so you want me to give you money. Then you tell me that I don't know what happiness is, and that any ideas I might have on the subject are asinine.

    Interesting approach.

    Actually I've got a pretty good idea of what makes me happy. So I'll be putting that money into my savings account and getting a new lens, as opposed to donating it to a project headed by a guy who has already decided I'm abusive and judgemental even though he knows squat about me personally. Granted the irony of that is quite humorous, but not nearly enough for me to waste any of my hard earned money to fund anyone else's angst ridden nihilism.

    So instead I'll just wish you luck distributing doom and gloom to the masses.

    Looks like he just wants you to fund him writing a book.

    Nothing cynical about it. I regularly donate to worthy causes. This.. well this just doesn't come anywhere close to making that list.

    But got a good laugh out of the website though, so there is that I guess.

    I did
    He contradicts himself ... above states
    but online states
    thus my conclusion he wants you to fund him to write a book and have it printed.
    It doesn't cost anything to write a book.

    But it does cost something to have it nicely printed per his webpage
    In short, I see someone wanting you to pay for him to write and print a book.

    btw, I'm very happy with my Conclusion and will be moving on now. :)

    Huh.. weird. If you're very happy doesn't that mean that his thesis must be wrong to begin with? Maybe that's why he's gotta get somebody else to fund his book project.

    But wait, if we funded his book project and it got printed, that might make him happy.. which of course would disprove his thesis... so really the only way to make him happy then would be to not fund the book, thereby proving his thesis... but then again if he's happy with that..

    Yikes. No wonder the guy thinks life is so messed up.

    Whacky.

    Maybe post a couple of your photos (meaning YOU took them) and we'll be happy to give you some critique on them. For the writing stuff, try a writer's forum -- many of us can't even spell correctly.

    I don't know if I'm happy about the link being removed . . . I guess I'll never know.

    The forum has a policy against the posting of crowd-funding links, and in particular self-promotion crowd funding, which the OP agreed to abide by when he signed up. Without this, TPF would quickly become a haven for people advertising for their own gain...
