One more time on skill, effort and idea 08:12 on Monday
Skills are appreciated by the “scene” — Flash skills are appreciated by Flash coders. Pristine and balanced sound mixing is appreciated by other producers. Knowing when to stop using diagonal stripes is appreciated by graphic designers.
Effort is appreciated most by people who know you. The less the viewers know you, the more effort is needed to make an impression.
Idea is appreciated by everyone.
