    There's a story about Sam Levine having been cast to play Nathan Detroit in the Broadway production of Guys And Dolls. Seems that some nice songs had been written for Detroit, which didn't make it into the final show because Levine was - of all things - tone deaf.

    So Detroit has just one song to speak of - the spoken-word "Sue Me."

    Well, Levine chafed at this, and apparently spent a good deal of time practicing and trying to learn a decent rendition of one of the eliminated songs. And when he performed it for the writers and the director they told him as gently as they could that he was nowhere near the actual tune.

    Whereupon, he angrily accused them of colluding beforehand to put him down. The evidence was that they all agreed!

    So, we'll file your expressed concern about conspiracy here with Sam's.

    You'd do better to settle down and learn to accept criticism - and to learn some things about anatomy.

    you sound like a very angry person. Am I suppose to be upset my "skill level" is not up to your expectations what with you being such a self proclaimed expert on photoshop. I have no idea of your ability, nor do I care. You act like you are an authority.

    It is people like you, that will put people off from trying to maybe create pics if all you do is belittle their ability.

    and you should learn to read what I wrote earlier how they are requests. Maybe in your haste to reply you ignored that.

    What I do find is hilarious you are complaining under the excuse of anatomy, because anatomically they could never be real.
    I hate to break it to you, Star trek ain't real either.
    You come across as a very angry person, who likes to dictate, and chastise others ability and taste.

    I do hope your argumentative attitude and condescending manner towards peoples "skills" does not put off other people from posting their efforts in this thread.
    You can have the last word, which you always have to have., and after that hopefully this thread can get back to normal.

    What you did wasn't "art" it was the doctoring and distorting of female bodies.

    Class A cringe.

    I'm 100% having "a go at" the gross reduction of female characters to little more than vehicles for exaggerated udders that you have posted.

    Troi's cleavage starts at her collarbone. Gross or otherwise, this is just bad work.

    Am I discouraging some future bad artist, here? Well, if someone can be successfully discouraged they should be. Making art's not about basking in praise and if one is thin-skinned enough about criticism to go after them yelling "conspiracy!" and the like one will be very unhappy at the work.

    I have no problem if people dislike the work, or dislike the subject matter, or criticism of the pic.What I will mention is the arrogance of you in your constant whining over it in your need for attention.

    Then that is difference between you and I .....I dont actively seek out people in this thread to cry over for multiple posts. If I dont like their work, or subject matter, I dont berate the poster or mock their work, I just move on, something you are clearly incapable of doing.
    I don't pretend to be an expert on photoshop either, but seemingly you think you are.
    I am not so arrogant to dictate what art should or should not be, like you think you are an expert on that too, but you are not
    I certainly would not boast about discouraging people from posting either. I am sure plenty of people would like to see more people involved.

    This says more about you and your arrogance and you obvious need for attention. You made your point but you will still carry on derailing the thread, because you crave the attention.

    Perhaps you should try some introspection, and ask why those puerile photos got such a negative reaction from so many people. Maybe it's not us. Maybe it's you.

    :shrug:

    In any event, I've given everyone a wide berth to express themselves here, but it's time to move on before this gets more personal and warnings have to follow.

    Moving on.

    Nailed it. But the 400/800 joysticks were the same as the 2600 joysticks :devil:. Which is a shame as 3rd party brands (e.g. TAC-2, Gravis) had more ergonomic users that also were built to last...

    The XE console needed its own updated version of Pac-Man based on how near-perfect its conversion/implementation of Mario Bros when compared to the previous Atari system offerings... not that the 1982 400/800 release was bad, it has some charm to it...

    Lets hope so, and others who post some work are not ridiculed for their skill level, and it can go back to being a thread for humour.
    The thread needs to be encouraging more to post
