I just want it so -I- don't have to deal with the extra requirements. Even if I would meet them anyway. I don't wanna feel like I'm forced to.
Just so happens the garbage posts would also end up there. I don't like them better than anyone else but should they be locked down? I'm not sure its necessary.
lets be real if the guys saying 'you followed all the rules though...' are right I probably have nothing to worry about. I'll worry anyway since I have an anxiety disorder and worring is baked in I can avoid it. This is just one more thing I have to keep in mind and I don't like it. I don't like having to prove the worth of my project to people who would never be interested in it in the first place.
I want to be able to do what I've been doing pitch my project my way to the best of my ability and attract people that way. Its been working fine for me so far. So now I need a mod to approve every stupid pitch I wanna make? sounds like a headache.
If people told me I'd have to PROVE my post was worthy of a space in the collaboration section by following some tedious checklist... no way in hell would I have gone with the pitch I did. Hell I might have scrapped the idea entirely because I might not be certain its worth that much energy without an artist on board. Instead I gambled I found my artist and I slammed out the first draft a day or so later.
I'm not going to invest a lot of time iterating on an idea or offering up payment without an interested artist in the discussion.
