So, I'm talking to someone right? And it turns ugly, and they reply "as if you would know your level 2"

I nearly Exploded.

So in utter anger, I created this 'rant' explaining my frustration. It's even more annoying knowing i was once a level 32, but I deleted all my content so I could start again. Leaving poor old me, left with a big fat Level 1. I later realised the mindless children that would take advantage of this, Calling for a point of authority, Acting as of a high importance. More power. More Ignorance. I had long thought about resetting my account, a lot of my content was noobish, terrible, ugly. You could even label it as spam, but out of confusion, some blogs I made racked up 6000+ views, 100+ diamonds and so on. Even my 16x16 (totally original - not) smoothcraft... Where everything was one pixel. Yeah Amazing work aye? yes... Well it racked up a whooping 8700+ views. 455+ Downloads, and 130+ diamonds. I was stunned... Could anyone possible like this rubbish? So I start taking Adobe tutorials, and around a year later, where we are now, I start creation on PiddyCraft-Legacy. So far it's 35% completed and two months in the making... Taking alot of time... So anyway back to my pointless rant. I gain 3 levels from this UNRELEASED Texture-Pack. No download link yet, I'm Pretty Impressed with the outcome after 1 night. But people still Label me as a noob. I have been with PlanetMinecraft for around 2 years, Yet no recognition. Just the poor community treating other members like dirt. I'm happy to bet my life, there are many other people out there in my situation. What if one of the biggest minecraft nerds in the world made an account. the first day, someone challenges him and he revokes. Explaining his point. And he gets Disapproved and turned down, because of his low level. I say everyone should be treated the same. No matter of their level. Everyone would be better off, And a lot happier at that.

I hope my word gets out to the users of Planetminecraft. Not rejected because of my level.

Also I'm sorry, but I cannot resist. Please visit Texture-Pack PiddyCraft-Legacy

I hate how this happens. I will subscribe to anyone either level 1 or 100. But at least the moderators and Cyprezz don't judge by level. I know Cyprezz subscribe's to a couple level 1 people and yet, he even subscribes to disco_, the highest level person on PMC. DON'T JUDGE BY LEVEL PEOPLE!

1 - make awesome stuff
2 - post awesome stuff
3 - become more popular
4 - level up
5 - ????
6 - Profit!

Seriously though, it's sad that some people only look at someone's level instead of their actual skill. Things like that will never chance, some will always think they are better than other people regardless of what happens. It's best to just ignore people like that.

Its only agreeable to a certain point, True those "little kids" think their superior than you, leave them. If you are older than them, then you would know better that you will survive through all their futile effort to make themselves look better.
Those with high levels, downloads views and diamonds are great work of arts.
If you prove yourself to be better than others then people will like your work.
Just make something that is worthy of looking at and people will like them. Make something that isn't good to look at, whats the point of liking it? Texturepacks are the hardest way to gain recognition, best you start with projects then move to skins. then to texturepacks.(unless it is truly a new concept of idea).
Look at bohtauri for example. High quality work = High level.

The only time I judge people on their levels is when someone makes a 'How to gain XP/Fame' tutorial blog and they're on level two or something (which is pretty common actually). In that situation I think it's justified.

I haven't experienced this, maybe because I am EXTREMELY new to PMC. Or maybe I'm just lucky. Either way, it should be stopped. If some random person says that the only stuff you can do is bad just because your new to PMC (not necessarily minecraft itself, notice) then they have lots to learn... You could have an ultra high level yet only play minecraft once a month or something, or a really low level 'cause they don't spend all their time postin things at each other, they spend it playing minecraft.

of course, if someone's work really is terrible, or you have actual HARD EVIDENCE of copying etc, then. It's not prejudice to tell them off.

Ok, rant over =)

If a level 1 steals skins, i ignore them, if a level one makes (what i think) crap work, i tell them how they can improve and if a level 1 make awesome work, i praise them.

True, but most of the time, some lvl 1 person comes on, just saying things on skins/texture packs/projects etc. And i just think, first, build something and post it, before you start swearing and saying things at others, but aside from that, i don't judge lvl 1 or lvl 2 etc.

I see your point, But my point is that, Don't take notice of their level. Just imagine he/she's a level 40. and take their opinion from there.

I AGREE WITH THIS! i'm sweared at, 24-7(24 hours 7days, EVERYDAY!!), and thats only becuase I'm a low level and they think it's ok to insult people! BUT THEY ARE WRONG!
WE SHALL BE TREATED ALL THE SAME!
for example; a guy got my skin removed just becuase he didn't think I'm good enough to make the skin, he judged me using my other skins I made, BUT it was mine. he just said; THIS IS STOLEN. I SAW UR OTHER SKINS, AND THEY ARE NT THE SAME!!! U STEAL! U THEIF! HAHAHAHA!

i wish everybody knew how i felt about that

I agree! I uploaded a skin one time and some new mod said in the comments:

No one wants to look at this skin cos your such a low lvl! Your probably not even capable of making a red man. He got my skin kicked of cos he was mod... Poor guy though. i had data on what he said and he got permbanned from pmc.

Honestly, i've never seen anyone judging other people because of their levels.But i find that that's not even unfair. The reason why low lever players get much hate is simply because their work DO suck, otherwise they wouldn't be level 1. And many comments here say it doesn't matter what level you are, it's all about how long you have been on this site. No. Trust me, being high level totally changes the way people threat you, and the same for being a low level. That's simply how it is.

Actually you don't get a level depending on the quality of the item you posted you get XP simply for posting something so most level 1's can't be called a noob because they have a low level well lowest, 1st of all they are new so let them take some time to level up and start getting noticed, 2nd just because someones a level 1 doesn't mean they suck, i've seen people with high levels and all the skins suck, you get XP for posting not getting likes rememer that.

No man, if you post something, you get like 20 exp. Good luck with leveling that way xD
If their work was good, they would automatically be seen and they wouldn't be level 1 anymore.
Of course high level people can also make shitty skins, but that's maybe because they levelled up from texture packs / mods. If I should make a skin, it also would suck.

I think you missed the distinction between someone who is low level because their work is low quality and someone who is low level because they have little work uploaded in general. everyone started at level 1 at some point. Plus, some talented artists don't get the recognition they deserve for a long time.
But yes, judging by level is commonplace and virtually unavoidable.

Not all low level's work sucks, I mean I know plenty of people who are way higher than me from posting crappy blogs when I have made lots of high quality (at least in my opinion :P) posts in nearly every category, it's just hard for anyone to even discover it...

Agreed. But you cant change how most people think, so I dont really think this is a problem anyone can address, and as long as there is a PMC with a levels system were going to have to live with it. Luckily for me though im a high level and ive noticed i win a lot more arguments if i play the level seniority card. It only works because the only people I argue with are the stupid people on PMC though, most of the decent people I get along with.

it makes little sense to judge how good people's blogs/texturePacks/skins etc. are by what level they are. you should only judge how long a person has been on PMC by what their level is

I agree completely, I am still level 1, yet I feel my blogs are better than some level 2's. I have been judged based on level far too many times, and I would never do this to anyone.

If you are going to rank yourself with others, keep it private. Trying to be better then someone is perfectly fine. It's motivation to work hard. And don't try to beat level 2's, Although their skill may be very high. Try to do better work then some level 40+.
But keep your Ranking and judgement to yourself, Or people get agitated.
