You know, most of my criticisms are not nice, and I can't help it if people percieve them that way. Sometimes, yes, I do go too far, and I get angry, and I apologize for it, but sometimes, it's just something that NEEDS to be said. Most people can get their point across by being nice, but that is NOT something I'm good at, and I certainly don't want to try.

And anyway, since you imply seem to be a better level critiquer than I am, I'd like to see YOU test a bunch of levels everyday just to help people, and see if it doesn't piss YOU off a lot of the times. It's a little harder than you think, ya know.

Why would you even be pissed off at something people do in their free time? It's not like it's their job; and nobody forces you to play a level. If you don't like it, don't play it instead of criticizing the hell out of it, going all capslock if something you mentioned doesn't get fixed and comparing it to a piece of rotten fish. It can be hard to get your point across while still being nice, but I can't see why you wouldn't want to try.

Thing is, level creating is something people do for fun. Some spend hours refining them, some finish a level in 20 minutes. In the end, they'll both contain mistakes, and while the one spending hours will probably notice and remove them, the one spending 20 minutes will most likely not and release his map. That's where criticizing comes into play. You tell him what mistakes he made and hopefully he fixes them, improving his level.

However, why would you start a review with this line?

If you don't take this feedback/criticism, I will be pissed.
If I didn't know you're normally a nice guy, my first impression of you would be totally ruined since that single line just gets across one message: Do what I say, or I'll be very angry at you.
And that's rude. Too rude.

So in the end, reviewing levels to help their creators is not a bad thing at all. Just remember that they spent their own very time on it, and getting something torn apart in front of yourself if you spent a lot of time on it can be very, very frustrating.

May I remind you that the level creater failed to listen three times?

So?
It's his level. If he doesn't want to listen, he doesn't listen. It's simple as that.
And then don't insult his level or get uselessly upset, simply ignore it.

Terry has already talked to me about this; I don't need to hear it again. :-X

Shouldn't you attach the 2.0 version to the first post so everyone doesn't have to scroll down and get it? :-X
