About helping others

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 23, 2015, 9:24 AM
It has recently come to my attention that some people just don't know how to respond to requests from others for help. I have always offered help to those I can when asked. I've never ignored a request for help. I do ask that a question is specific in nature. But overall, I answer every question I can to the best of my abilities.

So if you're going to act like you know something, and answer questions from people, you had better be prepared to answer a bunch of questions and have a bit of patience. Many times one question leads to another, and another after that. Or once you help with one question, that person may then turn to you and ask different questions. So be prepared for that. If someone is asking you for advice, they obviously think you have more knowledge that might help them. If you can't take the time for follow up questions, or just don't want to be bothered by questions that you 'think' are too obvious or simple for you to respond to, then you have no business helping someone in the first place.

If you aren't prepared to help every time someone asks, then just answer their note with a simple, "I can't help you." Or ignore it. But don't start helping them, and then get pissed when they ask for more help. And don't act like a child and start name calling and giving derogatory comments about their work. If they want criticism, I'm  sure they'll ask. But resorting to things like calling their work 'mediocre' and an 'abonimation' is childish, pathetic, immature and disgusting.

If you don't want to help someone, then don't, no one is saying you have to. I'm not naming anyone. But I personally am disgusted with a certain member of the community and in my opinion, they are the one that is an embarrassment to us. So to that person I say, I hope in the future you either ignore requests for help, or simply tell them you can't help. Because it's quite obvious, you are not qualified when you spout the trash I heard about.

Heat Exchangers by HalTenny

I've been trying to upload this all day, kept getting an "Unknown gateway" message, what ever that means. Finally went through just now. I'm not crazy about the intermediate areas between the 'pipes' or columns. Those areas are a mess, but I've tried many times with this style to clean them up and can't seem to get it. I do absolutely love the pipes and their support rings and rails. So that balances it out for me.

I always liked this Gypsy looking fractal, one of the first fractals I made... By the way, I thought it looked like a gypsy because it looked like he had two big ear rings hanging from his ears...
