I've been on this site for more than 3 years now and I've seen this site go through a lot of stuff but what I've come to realize lately is something that's quite making me sad and annoyed.
Now, this is just my opinion and my take on things but it's come to my attention that people have somehow lost the idea and the purpose behind making desktop wallpapers... which would be to make a desktop wallpaper based on a scan/photo/whatever so other people could appreciate it and use it for their own desktops. At least that's what I still believe and how I function.
Instead of that, I have a feeling as if the whole desktop wallpaper making has turned into one huge competition about faves and ratings and returning favors. And THAT makes me sad.
Don't get me wrong - I like getting comments and faves on my walls - it's a sign that people like it, appreciate and will in all likelihood, use it. Hence, my wall has achieved its purpose and I've gotten some feedback on my skills and the usage of the said skills. But that's why I created that wall - because I enjoy art and because I hope it will fulfill its purpose, not because I want to see my wall in the 'top rated walls' category.
This probably sounded harsher and angrier than it is. I'm not pointing my fingers at anyone here and that's not my intention; I just had the need to express my opinion about the overall feeling this walling community gives off nowadays.
That is all.
