Ever Dying - thanks for the feedback! You're right, I don't usually include the exact colours for my tuts and I'll consider adding it in next time. I know there are a lot of RSS tuts out there, but I hoped this would be one of the more unique ones due to it's shape, plus the usage of a pre-existing Photoshop shape to get the icon part.

Zach - For which I am grateful! But yet, there have been a few tuts I've seen that were GOOD, but had to be submitted twice to make it to the front because they had a few mods who rated them down when it should've been much higher. More and more I'm thinking there might be some less-than-ethical mods who try to stamp out competition for their own tut site ... is this something you actively look into?

Yes, the first mod did rate it a 1/5, I've seen a few before (or at least the ones that made it to the front page) get a low rating when they really should've deserve higher. Tried to bump em up but I personally don't think they should have been rated that low in the first place!

Only reason I can think of is that perhaps the mod wasn't familiar with what an RSS icon was, or they were trying to stamp out competition for their own site. Whatever the case, thanks for the compliment! :)

Woah, you guys are really rating this terrible?

The finished icon is polished and fine, and there's a lot of pen tool usage (plus info on how to use add/subtract). There's even a bit on how to make the RSS icon without painstaking tracing easily, using a bullet. The entire icon is scalable meaning there are no raster parts. It's well explained and illustrated.

If this is a terrible, what on earth are you looking for?

Hey thanks. :D Yeah I've been moving some things around on the site and I've noticed the pages might be a little hard to find - I'm thinking of implementing a plugin to make it more visible. Thanks for the suggestion!

Just so people know, my wordpress is acting a little funny today. If you get an error page, come back in about five minutes and it should be fine. Thanks!

Do some mods rate low for no reason?

Seriously, I could understand if this was one of my other tutorials - perhaps my badge of navigation - but this is something unique. I've searched your database and haven't found anything like this. Also, I believe it's well-documented and explained. Even if it uses 'simple' steps, it's effective. What are you guys looking for when you rate these?

avatarmintyferret over 14 years ago

Why was this rated so low? I certainly don't think it's 'terrible', especially for a tutorial in the Basics category. I remember when I first started out I was looking everywhere to learn how to make this effect.

Thanks, I appreciate it. ;)
