frustration with no descriptions continues.... - Page 2

post #16 of 62
I tend to give a brief description with my pics and also like reading the descriptions of others, but come on. Why is this such a big deal? If someone doesn't post a description .... so what??

I look at the artestry of others as a springboard for IDEAS for what I could do, not to copy it exactly. I tend to take elements from several cakes and put them together and morph them in a way that works for me. If I have a question, I ask.

Basically, my feeling is who cares. People, not only on this site but in general, need to worry about themselves and stop worrying on what everyone else is doing.

I have to agree with Jamie, this is really getting old now!

Count me in with Jamie and Starbucks Addict and the rest!! Geez.... why don't we just delete and then ban all members who don't leave a detailed tutorial with pics illustrating every step of every cake they've ever posted? Where in the world does this sense of entitlement come from?

Lighten up folks.... its just cake.

Let me start off by saying that I also enjoy reading the descriptions. I find it so much easier to have my questions answered in the description rather than PMing somebody. But I also don't mind having to PM when there is no description (it doesn't bother me either way). Now that I've expressed my opinion on the subject.....Why do ya'll have to be so mean about it? She does have the right to post her opinion the same way ya'll aren't holding back on yours. I mean really, if a thread like this bothers you so much than why do you click on it? Skip to the next one. And allow those who don't have a problem with this thread post their replies. It's that simple.
I am so sorry grandmaruth for the harshness expressed, but know that not all of us feel the same way, and I hope that this doesn't discourged you from posting in the future.

Let me just say, I am not sure if this happened to anyone else and this was a while back, but if you look on my pics and there is no description on it, it is probably because I tried to upload countless times after typing a description and it wouldn't upload, so I tried it without the description and it worked. I figured after that fiasco that if someone had a question they would PM, I like being able to answer and ask specific questions. Hope that I could show another side of it. Sorry if that steps on anyones toes.

Thanks,

Sarah

I agree with champagneibo.. after trying to enter pics and having it not work and after writing a detailed description each time... I gave up.When you have a little one(or little ones) at home its hard to get "simple" little things done.. and this is one of them.

I think it is courteous to viewers for you to leave a description of your cake. After all, if they are viewing it, they may be admiring it and thinking nicely of your work and may enjoy hearing what kind of cake it was, who it was for, whether you pulled your hair out making it etc.

My cakes are an expression of me, and I don't mind sharing my humble experience with that cake. I'm no professional, so when I see a cake described well by someone who I consider professional or talented, I think very positively of them. Same as when that person continues to give their experience so freely on the forums, I consider them gracious and generous, a trait to be admired these days. You know who you are. icon_wink.gif

I've noticed people go so far as to leave a response to questions made on their photo in the comments. I think it's so nice when people choose to do that.

I think it would be much simpler to describe the cake as well as you can, instead of answering many PM's years to come about the same cake.

Do I think it should be mandatory? No, I just think it's nice if you choose to do so. Freedom of choice is such an awesome thing isn't it? usaribbon.gif

I have come to the point that if someone cares so little as to tell us a little something about the picture, then I just don't comment on it.....
post #25 of 62
And this is exactly why I stopped uploading pics a long time ago....I hate the attitudes that people get about not leaving comments/vs leaving comments, I didn't get 100 comments about my cake, the comments were only 2 words long, etc.

I agree with this comment. I have noticed that many of the people who don't leave anything about their cake may not speak English. That is fine with me and I understand.

While I don't expect a story or directions behind each cake, I think it is nice to just mention the flavor of the cake and the icing. Many cakes do not need explaining - but putting something about the cake is nice.

Yep. I have a few that I have done this with. And I always leave a thank you when someone comments! When it starts to become expected in any way shape or form...that's when it's not cool.
