Does this count as "submitting something"?

It's a piece of fucking shit that I marked as a sketch, and I've no intention of doing anything else, but it's there nonetheless.

yea it counts. A Sketch may possibly lead to a full draw

I consider myself as part of the 1 percent. I mean, all my submissions I at least put effort into it and not just mindless garbage.

Hah.

Yeah I submit crap here. Mostly because despite half my shit being fanart it still gets more attention here then everywhere else I post it combined. No big deal. Doesn't matter, doesn't make me better then any other fucking user that's for sure.

I wish just about every "helpful" critic would shut up. They're either complete ass-kissers, or just talk for the sake of talking. All operating under the false assumption that you can "push" someone to be more creative through your stupid words. Unless you know in exquisite fucking detail what you're talking about and can give them exactly the amount of help they request and are happy to accept and actually use, you're wasting everybody's fucking time.

I don't know how many long-winded critiques I've read that my reaction can boil down to "blah blah blah blah SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP". Too many.

Watching a lot of professional reviewers struggle as they attempt to articulate exactly why they didn't like such-and-such is cringe inducing, let alone your average schmuck who can't even be arsed to demonstrate why something needs fixing.

Just shut up and stick to deciding whether or not you like it. Newgrounds as fine as-is, a bunch of uppity assholes running around being oh so fucking helpful wouldn't help anything.

I've given a lot of constructive criticism in my life mostly because I'm better at it than I am at giving useful positive criticism. And honestly, it's only once in a while that I get a negative reaction. In part it's because I'm fairly decent at telling who would or wouldn't mind criticism but it's also in part due to tone. A lot of people who give criticism don't seem to realize how they sound. They come across as being a lot meaner than they intended to. This I think happens a lot more frequently for people who haven't received a lot of criticism of all tones, which is mostly non-artists, hence how frequently the "You can't make it so you can't judge it" argument gets thrown around.

I entirely disagree. True, there are quite a few people who can't be assed to read long critiques but there are also quite a few who can be. It's not worthwhile to critique people who have obviously put no creative effort into what they've made but I don't think it's a waste of time at all to critique those who seem to genuinely care about the quality of their work.

Foreword: You don't need to be good at something to have an opinion on it. You're allowed to think something sucks, no-one can take that away from you.

You do, however, need to know your shit to criticize it with any degree of accuracy.

Hah, nice work on reading my post.

I'm joking you suck and your critiques suck. Yeah your abhorrent unhelpful critiques were included in the generic umbrella of "everyone here and their patronizing paragraphs can go fuck themselves". You just sit there and fucking go on and on and expect them to interpret words about a visual medium in a constructive manner. Hell you just proved you can't even interpret words divorced of a criticizing context.

Let me save you the fucking trouble and sum up my post so you can't fuck it up so badly next time (hint, it wasn't that it was too long, it was too long-winded. as in you suck):

1) You can't make people better. They have to help themselves. And the minute they start doing that, they don't need some parental guiding hand, just the rulebook and the patience to figure it out. You can't teach humility and the willingness to improve.
2) Everything you could possibly say, someone else has said better. Everything. On art. Your words are redundant, and most of the written advice is repeatable ad nauseum. Doesn't stop you and every silly asshole with the ability to write more then sentence without getting bored just talk talk fucking talk GOD DAMN IT.

What you spew out is just words. Words that don't matter, words that confuse and befuddle a singularly visual medium.

That leaves in your toolbag of goodies to help people:

1) Links. Links to people who know their stuff and have managed to construct brilliant tutorials and everything the budding artist needs to get better. These people know their shit and have layed it out for people to peruse themselves in a manner they feel like, instead of having it spoonfed to them. Doesn't matter how long it is.
2) Demonstrations. Redrawing, repainting, whatever, their art to articulate your personalized ideas in a manner easily applicable by said artist. The less words the better, use your skill to teach. Hell, create a tutorial yourself.
3) No. That's it.

Neither of can be done in the usual pissing newground's reviewing format, are done in the atypical newground's art forum, and are even mildly attempted by YOU.

I would debate you about why it still stands and its relevance to the content of your last post but the conversation is already descending into insults and swearing so I figure it's not worth it. Have fun with that.

Many submissions suck (including mine.)
Making something decent in flash is difficult. That's something that you never really understand when you don't know any flash.

Forgive them, for they know not what they say.

I don't submit flash content specifically, but I've been here for longer than 80% of newgrounds at least, as well as vote on every flash submission in the portal. Ever.

the newgrounds community is filled with slackers, or people who spend time and effort trying to improve aspects of this site in order to receive cosmetic but ultimately useless rewards and titles

the 1% you speak of is nothing to be proud of
