i’m fascinated by how designers will post things like “there is no need to produce a negative world, you don’t need to criticize, you don’t know the constraints the team was under,” etc, etc. Surely a level of consideration is due for the degree to which it takes time to appreciate any thing, surely it’s not always appropriate to draw conclusions about designers from what ships, but I think that if your feelings are hurt by somebody not liking what you made, I dunno, maybe you’re an egotist? Things put into the world should be an act of service towards mankind, and if you make people’s lives worse, them expressing their dissatisfaction is the consequence you must live with. It’s not something to shrink from or hide from, it’s the reason to labor in the first place.
