I do agree that certain members purposefully hide information for reasons uknown to me. Without going much into that, I also do understand why people mostly just post pictures as well. Sometimes I do it too as a lot of the time I don't feel my mods are special enough that somebody would want to know where I got this or that. I try to post info whenever I can remember and will always answer any questions. I feel that's enough and the entire list of parts shouldn't be mandatory with every post or something like that. Thankfully, the rude members seem like a very small minority so no reason to be demotivatedJust some basic thoughts of mine ...
What is the purpose of this all?
I mean the forum, the community, the members and all the participants of this thread.
My personal opinion is: We are all teachers and pupils in one person. We meet each other in places like this, to share informations, to take and to give experience, because we are all (or should be) enthusiasts in Vostok modding.
Some participants obiously do not think so and break the chain, just to pamper their own ego. They do (my opinion again) abuse this thread to brag about their stuff, take all the information they can get and give a da** sh** to those, who try to be a part of the community as it should be.
Most interresting is, that these people nevertheless get rewarded for their selfish behavior.
So, is this then the real purpose of this all?
Just to make it clear, I don´t want to set any "rules" and I don´t want to "educate" anyone, I just had some basic thoughts about a (hopefully) very small group in this community which concerns me quite a lot, because of its destructive power and the demotivating effect it might have to others.
For my part, I´m already very, very demotivated and also much more disappointed !
