I’ve been a LumberJocks member for 212 days and I saw something for the first time yesterday.
I saw Lumberjocks offering constructive criticism of another Lumberjock’s project. This was NOT a case where the project owner asked for advice. The project was “dovetailed walnut jewelry box” and I thought the comments were offered with sensitivity and intended as a “helping hand” to a fellow Lumberjock.
I found this quite refreshing and would like to see more of this. All the attaboys and pats on the back are good for the ego, but we could all learn from some constructive criticism.
Obviously, this is a sensitive subject and I don’t want to rock the boat of the great community we have here but I think that done correctly, this could provide a great value to all of us.
Probably need some guidelines or rules. I offer the following for discussion.
1) Be honest, don’t be mean in giving you opinions.
As a practice run, I offer all my projects for constructive criticism. Please go back to my projects and offer your suggestions, opinions, and constructive criticism. Might be a case of be careful what you wish for but it should be interesting.
Can we safely do this or is this a Pandora’s box?
