    I think it's lacking in punctuation....unless you are going for that broken English look?

    My advice is to show only 1 sentence per grouping. That way you don't have to worry about punctuation...

    I don't think this point should be the deciding factor. Have a look at the course curriculum as well as the student work.

    Although at this stage, you might not understand what a good course...

    Hi Ivan, it depends on the project for sure.

  • GDF Code of Conduct

    GDF Code of Conduct

    The Graphic Design Forum is a congregation of design professionals of all ages and fields in the industry. One thing that we all share in common is our professionalism when dealing with others. Whether you're new to the field or drawing upon many years of experience, it is very important that we ensure our fair and polite treatment towards others when replying to someone's post. Remember, communicating via the Internet is somewhat tricky and text by itself can be misunderstood. As such, we expect you to post in an appropriate manner. Following these basic ideals and guidelines will assist in this process.

    1.) RESPECT. Have a baseline of respect for everyone. This must hold true for the simple reason that each poster must NOT be considered a faceless entity. Meeting someone in real life for the first time requires a certain amount of respect and time to "feel the other person out". This can be conveyed on GDF through verbal greetings, and taking the time to ascertain what kind of person is behind the avatars we choose.

    2.) PATIENCE. A little bit of patience goes a long way. Get to know the members, and what's kosher and what isn't. Many of us have known each other for a while, and like any other "new" person or situation, it takes a bit of time to get used to. Don't rush things!

    3.) HUMILITY. A bit of humility a day, keeps the GDF mods away! Cockiness, arrogance in small amounts can be considered confidence, but too much tends to rub people the wrong way. Be humble when asking for help, as well as be humble when giving it. Critiques and such are one way in which we improve our work, but it must be presented in a constructive fashion. Being humble will help in this.

    4.) POLITENESS. Anyone can be rude, but real professionals are polite and courteous. Polite courtesy is something we have all probably found lacking at one time or place. This does not have to be the case at GDF. A little bit of effort on your part to be polite and courteous will not only ensure people interact with each other in a friendly manner, but it will set a good example for other members.

    5.) SINCERITY. Be true to that which you say. Oftentimes it's difficult to figure out what a person's meaning is based on their post. Sometimes it requires some extra explaining in order to ensure the meaning gets across clearly. Try to be as concise, honest and accurate as you can when you're posting.

    Each of these points blend together to make up the code of conduct. They must all be utilized in order to maintain a good working relationship with your fellow forumites. This holds true in any social situation in life. Following these points will certainly make your visit here an easy, fun and enjoyable one.
