    Dribbble is one of the (if not THE) most positive and pleasant outlets for designers to visit on the internet

    Are you serious? I cannot tell if this is sarcasm or not.

    Fuck that Intercom article

    I don't know about this Intercom article - can you link it please?

    ... any designer taking their work so seriously they’ll shit on others that are actually posting good and interesting designs or thought provoking concepts

    That is a bit of a misleading way of thinking about it. Because what is being posted on dribbble distorts the reality for those who consume what is posted there. And that is influencing the way they work and what they produce, which creates trends. So we should absolutely post responsibly on dribbble.

    90% of shots on dribbble are decoration. They are things made pretty. But Design is not only about making it pretty. The way it is right now I only use it to follow illustrators.
