The Constructive criticism Thread
Hello and Welcome to the Constructive criticism thread!

I saw this off another board and well Kinda Stole the Idea ^^; Sorry guys XD But you did say you wished for this thread to start and well ALOT of people are probably worried about Trolling and other nastyness

So I thought I would lay some ground rules for this!

1) only post on this thread if you WISH for Constructive criticism!

2) Constructive criticism has to be for the nature to help others IMPROVE the outfit they are making/already done (How ever if already done don't bash them too much as well it's already made o.O;; xD)

3) Any calling, insulting to peoples work already made which isn't in a Constructive criticism manor will be asked to not do this again.

4) You may link your own outfit upon which you would like Constructive criticism on, Such as an outfit you are looking to improve or is making. Feedback is loved by everyone! But sometimes people can have better ways of doing things you just wouldn't think of normally

5) Don't take any comments to heart, any crit is with the intention of helping you improve!

6) have fun

This thread in the hopes to HELP others and help them improve!

So yeah nothing heart breaking Aka this isn't for the faint hearted! XD but nothing....... like 'Your outfit is horrible you can only save it by restarting the whole thing!' If you get what I mean!

Anyway You basically will go on the user above you to pick something to Crit.
Unless the user above you posts an outfit they wish Crit on it's a go a head and pick anything rule!

So this is like a comment/crit on the user above you, Go and comment on their costume with your crit then report back on this thread to sayyou have done so! then the next person will crit you ^^
if you have a cosplay you wish to be crited on just mention it in your post ^^ simples!

So Go ahead people! let the Constructive criticism commence! 8D (hopes this goes down welllllllllllll)

This is a good idear as long as it gets used correctly. I think it's inportant to not just say what is wrong but also give suggestions of how to fix or make better. Looking foreword to getting better together

Thanks for setting this up! C: However, I have to say I disagree with your fifth rule:
"5) PLEASE ONLY COMMENT HERE IF YOUR OKAY WITH MILD BASHING!!!"
No one giving con-crit is doing it with the intention of "bashing", only giving friendly advice as to how things could be improved.
I don't think anyone on here is harsh enough to say things like 'Your outfit is horrible you can only save it by restarting the whole thing!' anyway!


With that said, I'd love con-crit on everything/anything I have! I always look to improve where I can

I only really put that there for people who might take some advice in a bad way! if you'd like to make any rules I can edit the thread ^^ (I suck at rule making XD)

How ever I have now commented on - http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/68598

I think the general rule will be abit like the comment thread? See how that plays out ^^ as I think this thread would die if it was everyone posting saying ok they want it then......well we run out and people will forget about it XD

Yeah, I think the wording is just the problem. Perhaps if you changed it to "Don't take any comments to heart, any crit is with the intention of helping <3" or something silly like that. (I actually had to google "bashing" when I saw the post, and the definition makes it sound quite harsh)

Yeah, I think that'd be for the best like "if you request one, give one" kind of thing

yes please for some reason I don't feel something is right with my main costume (lord general Adam) even though thats what the character is meant to look like.

I think you'll find they have, and it's best to comment on the page of the costume itself. But thanks for the comment regardless.

From here on we shan't be discussing rules, let's just get on the thread so there's no more confusion.

You haven't been cut out of anything. If you look, after my comment I went and commented on yours in turn, and the thread continues to run.
However, by now commenting and not posting a comment on DarkieKun's costumes you've whacked out the thread. I assure you, you haven't been lost out of any loop

Edit: I see after my comment you've gone and given Darkie a concrit, so all is well again!

You hadn't, as the time stamp proves. But it really does not matter.
Let's get on with the thread

No one on CI as far as I know wants to cut anyone out, on Cosplay Island we are a rather tight community who cares.

anyway yep lets just ignore the bump and enjoy the rest!
