I woke up this morning to all this mess so I'm gonna say a few words. I can not speak for Tyrigsus or Shadowgear6335 here, so I'll only be speaking for myself and what I had said, not the other two. Take it for what you will.
My apologies for anyone who took offense to those comments. I understand how some may have found them offensive and took them personally, however that was not my intent. I have, in fact, received far more criticism on my MOCs and posts on this site. Is that a bad thing? Not always. Sometimes the arguments are totally founded and have good intentions, and sometimes I'll post a MOC here only for it to be completely torn to shreds, leaving me feeling pretty horrible about my creation.
Do understand that this site has left me feeling bitter towards it for that reason, as have other sites such as Deviantart or Tumblr or Instagram. This is not unique to TTV. This is something that happens to everyone. However, I never meant for it to come off as "every time I post". That is simply, untrue. For example, my latest post Endeavor received much praise, and a lot of well founded constructive criticism, which I am in agreeance with.
I myself do not like it when others stereotype entire groups of people, Which is why when I said:
"But the people who are on their message boards are just, so rude sometimes. like, 'hi, nice to meet you, glad you hate me immediately.'"
I intentionally used the term "sometimes". I know very well not everyone has greeted me such a way, and I never will make the claim that everyone has greeted me in such a way just because a select few actually have.
the TLDR of it is, I had no intentions of stereotyping the entire group, or insulting anyone in particular. I apologize to anyone who took what I said personally, and hope you can understand that it was simply not my intention. There is nothing to be gained from spreading ill will of other people, and I hope you can forgive me had you been personally offended by what I said. I should have thought about my wording before speaking as that statement was taken as insult by many, and I completely see, and understand how and why it was.
That being said, I do plan to continue MOCing, building, and posting as I always have, and I look forward to continuing to hear your feedback in the future.
Have a good one, everyone.
