I’ve posted some designs on Forrst expecting some constructive ideeas, some practical advices and all I got were the kind of messages you mentioned: “Nice”, “I like it!”, “awesome” and few likes. That’s all. I was really dissapointed…

Weird, I always get valuable feedback there :)

I dont want to be part of a club that would accept people like me as a member.

Closed door ‘communities’ like these do not benefit anyone. In most cases you get feedback you want to hear, like minded people like the same shiz. For real feedback, go speak to your client OR someone who has no idea about design and se what they think.

Art & design should not be behind closed doors. It just makes people feel high and mighty and part of a club where they get to hand out golden tickets.

These should be open to all, the benefits would massively overshadow any negatives.

You: Hey man, can you tell me what you think about this design.

Someone who has no idea about design: Needs cute kittens and brighter colors like a rainbow.

Dude, clients and people who know nothing about design are idiots. :)

I had a client few months ago and we had this conversation:

I’d like to mention that the client said i can build it however i want.

Me: Ok, here it is, what do you think.

Client: Wow it’s awesome.

Me: Anything you would like to add or remove?

Client: Can you make a registration form?

Me: Yeah sure. Which part should be only for registered members?

Client: Well everything, and when people see they need to register they know the website is exclusive. Ohh and please use this logo i made (a 960px x 200px logo).

That’s just 2 things, i did everything what he said, didn’t agree with 80% but i don’t care, it’s not my money. That was few months ago, the website is already down.

Which means, people who don’t know anything about design or usability won’t help you much, they’re idiots when it comes to those things.

Actually, they know exactly what they want, and its your job to give it to them. Nothing else, they are not paying you to push the boundaries of design or reinvent a CMS . You just have to get the job to meet THEIR needs, not your ego.

Let’s not go off-topic.

I went over system32’s portfolio and it’s a shame that he can’t get an invite. Their work is real good.

again, if he would participate in competitions, he would definetely get one… nobody’s gonna fly to you and knock on your door with an invite on a silver plate, no offense, I just wanna say… google “dribbble invite” and post your portfolio link on those blogs and you all gonna have a good chance

one issue is also that there aren’t many invites, Dan Cederholm the owner of dribbble invited the most people, only 113 people > http://dribbble.com/simplebits

I disagree, the whole point of it being “invite only” is to try and keep the quality high and community tight. Invites are handed out on random intervals it seems, I’ve only received four in the year I’ve been a member.

All you need to do is get your name out there on twitter looking for an invite, or sign up as a prospect as someone else already mentioned.

By the time I get an invite, Dribbble won’t be cool anymore and it won’t be a big deal to have an account because everyone will have an account.

Yes, I’m bitter :-p
