Is it just me getting irritated, but has the last month or so seen a big increase in the amount of "drive by posters". You know the ones I'm talking about, they have 1 post and its them posting a link to their flickr or what not asking for CC. Not necessarily the ones with low post counts, everyone starts with a low post count. You can easily tell someone who will contribute vs someone who will not. I was looking at someone's back posts and their last 18 posts have been all about the threads that they started for CC, no comments or time spent commenting or discussing anything else. Thats a very selfish way to approach a community IMO. And before you say it, I know, I don't have to respond to that poster, its my choice, bla bla bla, but some chose to ignore and move on, others chose to try and discuss in hopes of change. People don't seem to take the time to actually contribute to the forum and make the community better. I see the same half dozen people giving GOOD cc in posts, and props to all of you who do. And no, I don't consider "Nice job" good CC. I've been here for a little over a year, so maybe its just a regular cycle the forum goes through. Personally, I'm getting a wee bit irritated by things like this and it makes me not want to take the time to post honest CC on images. I understand why some of the "old timers" don't frequent the beginner boards, but I would feel guilty not doing so as this is where I have posted and received some good CC from a few people. I dunno, just ranting I guess.
