    So, related to the critique thread...

    I was thinking, what if we who want and will give honest and constructive criticism, and we who also want it from others, put something like this in our signatures...

    Why Bother. If you want good honest critique ask for it in your post.

    You're going to get the standards, "I like it", "I hate it" anyway along with your mix of good critique, and unfortunately idiots who will think they are being helpful by telling you that "Your photography sucks", "you should give your client her money back".

    Fortunately the latter people don't stick around this forum much when they realise their opinions are ignored by all.

    I think the first step is to have people actually post photos for critique in the appropriate forum.

    Those that want to or have the ability to give good critiques peruse the sub-forums in the "Photo Galleries" rather than in "Foundations of photography".

    For example... the thread you linked probably should be under Discussions rather than Beyond Basics.

    Then the next step is to ask specifics on the photo itself rather than just say "What do you think?" and leave it at that.
