As far as I can tell by reading the thread to this point, we're here for the former. Unfortunately you seem to have the latter pretty much under control which is making that difficult to achieve.nblazer201 wrote:Do you guys want to talk about design standards in eurorack, or just be trolls with petty useless things to say?
The fact that nobody agrees with you isn't because we're all a bunch of idiot fanbois who wouldn't understand the concept of "design" if it tied us down and wrote its manifesto in Rapidograph pen on our foreheads. It's because you're addressing the community at large in an incredibly disrespectful and condescending way, and at the first suggestion of dissent you launch into a shrieking tirade of insults AND CAPITAL LETTERS AS IF THAT WILL HELP US TO UNDERSTAND YOU BETTER.
I know you're relatively new here so you may not have picked up on this yet, but behavior like yours doesn't get anyone very far at this forum. Too many thoughtful, mature people here to respond to an internet bully.
If you're genuinely interested in discussing Eurorack design standards then by all means please continue, but you'll get a much better discussion if you ratchet down the crazy a little bit and drop the notion that anyone who disagrees with you simply doesn't understand the subject.
FYI my profession for 15 years before getting into modulars was graphic design. My educational background is in for-print and 3d design. I've placed pieces in juried shows on more than one occasion and have even taught at the college level as a "non-graduate graduate assistant" for a semester. If you wanna talk design, brother, I can talk design.
