You know, when an artist ask for diplomatic immunity just because it is his first flash submitted like :
Don't blam its my first flash ever,
please be kind im just beginning with flash
etc...

I mean i'm the first one to defend new comers if they got potential or to encourage them to work on their stuff. But when its written : don't blam im just a 14 years old , it just get to me. DUde im going to review your stuff whatever, even if your 14 , or a newbie at flash it doesn't mean you deserve some kind of immunity because you suck at flash!

Am i the only one ??

I've heard that even when the Flash was pretty decent.

Same here.

When and IF I ever post a flash submission, I ain't saying that. Sure, I'd say it's my first, but I'll let everyone be brutally honest. That way, should it be blammed, I can learn from what I did wrong and make something better.

Insta-zero.

They're likely the kind of person who responds to criticism with something like "well i bet u cnt do bettr fagot". And it makes me happy seeing their score plummet.

I'd count it against them, but not if it would make the difference between me blamming it and me saving it.

If I'd have given it a 1 otherwise, I'd give it a zero.
If I'd have given it a 2, I'd still vote a 2.

It doesn't phase me. If your flash is shit, I will vote zero. But that's still less annoying than people who request you not to blam it because the flash is only a test.

I don't automatically blam the submission because the author tells the voters not to do so, but it just warns me that the flash deserves it. I still look at the flash submission to see if it deserves to be sent to the flash graveyard.

Not really, I don't get tired of that because I don't spend my day worrying about trivial shit like that. Honestly, I wonder why people bitch so much about spam flashes and shit being submitted to the portal as if the world will end if it keeps happening.

If it's bad, I blam it. If it's good I save it.

Whether it's from a 14 year old kid begging for mercy or a basement-dweller 45 year old that has nothing better to do.

Yeah, I kind of am but that's probably only because there are more flashes that are saved than blammed, so it seems more important to get the blams because they are rarer. Of course, if I see something that I really find to be bad, I would put a low rating on it. I have not blammed that many things, so it's possible most of the stuff that is blammed says it. Luckily, we here tend to be unforgiving with bad stuff.

On my first flash I said that it was the first one I had made, but I didn't ask for any kind of special treatment. Coop was the only one to review it though. I didn't even know he was a mod at the time since I hadn't started posting in the forums yet.

People should think before uploading.

If you beg to not be blammed I'll immediately be biased against you before I've even clicked Play.

I watch it first and if it is crap then I am going to vote 0. My advice is if they lack confidence then they should wait awhile and get a bit better with their skills before submitting their first piece. Since in my opinion "plz dnt blam, my frist pece, kthanx" is pretty much the same as saying "FREE BLAM POINT HERE!!!!!"

I might mention it's my first try but it's not like I expect people to be nice. 'Cause the internet is full of assholes who's sole purpose in life is to flame others.

Rather than posting it is your first piece, the author should tell some stuff about the flash such as how long they spent making it and what is about rather than saying it is their first piece.

That's not really my kind of humor. At all. I guess it just never appealed to me because there isn't a point.

Usually I just check out the Flash and review it. If the author's comments are dumb, it doesn't affect how I vote or review it. Especially because a lot of people are too hard on themselves. I've seen tons of animators say they're rusty, they suck, etc. but what they submit is really good.

What I meant was, if someone can't learn to take criticism properly, they shouldn't be bringing things like that out into the public eye. Ever.

When they're begging for you not to blam it, that usually means it's not really worth passing, and that they're well aware of that fact. Usually though, not always. It's always better to watch and vote on the real quality.

Tired of it, but I still vote fairly. You know, I went back to look at my first flash.

I'm surprised I didn't beg for mercy.

If it's bad, I blam it, however, if the person adds that comment, I'll vote it lower, but not if it's the difference between blam and save.

If I wanted to vote 3, I'd vote 2.
If I wanted to vote 1, I'd vote 0, but then again I always use zero.
