Thank god the Them Crooked Vultures album was not too far below it, otherwise the point would have gone over my head. Pretty funny, and actually quite well done.

First time a satire box has done that in a while.

Wait, what the fuck. You deleted you box? What the hell. It was perfectly fine. I liked it alot.

Don't take Mub too seriously, he didn't mean to directly attack your work. Have you seen his boxes? No way he would attack another box for being too simple. C'mon, this is a joke.

@Eggboy'13 Sorry. Perhaps sarcasm doesn't translate well through text, or I'm just a dumb ass. If you guys want me to re-upload I can.

You guys still act like idiots. I wonder sometimes if being on this site to much slows your aging and maturity level.

I don't quite understand why everybody gets so upset here over trivial stuff. Good lord guys, it's a joke. You say Mub is the one who needs to grow up? If this kind of stuff shits in your cereal that much, maybe it's the other way around.

I'm sorry but he went out of his way to embarrassing someone and put them in the spot light saying his work has no effort, is bland, and the font choice is crap. That is fucking immature dude. You need to get the stupid stick out of your ass.

@TrevOwnz the moment when you label and measure maturity without irony.

TrevOwnz 41 [ 7 years ago ]

@mchapra Yes I see your new box and it's description and I don't really care.

If your idea of a joke is to blatantly insult someones talent without any type of way of coming across as friendly or joking. How is that not immature. You wouldn't conduct yourself like this at a art school or other well known art communities so why here? Because other people think the whole trolling thing is funny too?

@mchapra Do you understand what maturity means. I mean really. Saying I see that you insulted me on your other box and I don't really care that you did. It's not affecting me does not come off as mature or immature.

@mchapra It wasn't a question it was more rhetorical. Also auto correct on the iPhone puts it's automatically.

Someones grammar isn't their maturity level. It's the way you carry yourself and the way you act. Being a grammar Nazi however is a lot worse than making the initial mistake.

Not even close but keep trying. Here's 25 pence for the extra lives.

P.S. Rhetorical questions end with question marks :3

@mchapra emotionally undeveloped; juvenile; childish.

That is the most commonly used way of saying immature. I will be the first to admit my grammar isn't that strong but you know what. I will take art skill/knowledge over grammar any day of the week.

@mchapra What you would count as contradiction and immature is so borderline.

mchapra 33 [ 7 years ago ]

"The way you act."

The way I act. I am mature enough to accept that I am a normal person. I laugh at dick jokes because I find them funny, not turn my nose up at them because the universe tells me to. That's true maturity, acting who you are, and knowing when to act. Frankly, I am acting accordingly to the internet. So yes. You just punched yourself in the face.

Calling people immature and pursuing maturity is a childish advent. Grow up.

@mchapra According to what part of the internet exactly? VGBA, 9gag and 4chan. That group of people isn't something I would use as a measuring stick.

I'm not pursuing you. Someone on Facebook told me that you went out of your way to insult someone and how bad VGBA was getting. So I clicked and took a look to find you as the person doing it.

The fact that he removed his box and told you to grow up should be a sign that your actions insulted him and bothered him to a level that isn't funny. You put him in an embarrassing situation and put his talent up for discussion.

Also saying you acting accordingly to the internet is more proof. The internet is a large place and depending what part of the internet you think you are acting can really be different. I will use other art sites for example. Dribbble is a closed group of artist that never have anything negative to say about each others work and would never in a million years insult each other. This is a professional group that respect artwork. They aren't some trolls sitting around an art website not contributing and insult others for years. Find something better to do.

Even other cover websites don't act like this. Just because the forums is a flood gate for non contributing joksters doesn't mean being on their level is right. This site needs more constructive criticism and respect for others. If you want to point at all the errors and grammatical flaws have at it. Doesn't prove anything.

My professor has work in his portfolio that you would recognize and has won awards for his artwork and he writes at a middle school level. So being on a art site and correcting people doesn't prove anything. In the real world most artist never touch a single piece of type. It's given to them by copy writers.

I'm done. I said what I needed to say and I don't feel like I was extreme about anything. You insulted someone and it bothered them and me. Until next time.

@TrevOwnz Hey, take a look at my boxes quick, m'kay? In a sense, Mub was taking a shot at me too. Do you understand that? He did it indirectly, but he still did. I don't think you comprehend what Mub is saying at all. This whole "minimalism movement" is becoming a huge fucking headache because people do end up thinking that BLAND equals minimalistic. No. Not at all. I forgot who even had the original box, and I don't quite care, but his box was a fucking magazine advertisement at best.

Graphic design has gone from Drew Struzan to, in all honesty, thirteen minutes worth of work. You can say Mub is being immature all you want, but who really cares? If this made the original artist take his box down, he needs to take a look in the mirror and focus more on self-esteem then designing boxes.

We know Mub likes to take the piss (in more ways than one, bam.) Getting upset over something so worthless (no offense Mub, I just mean that your box art doesn't stack up to other problems we encounter in day to day life) is ridiculous. I put so much work into my art, and in the end I'll get a couple of likes, but does that make me run away with my tail in between my legs? Of course not, it just means I need to keep trying harder. I feel like you have to tip-toe around saying anything negative here because it'll hurt some teenager's soul. Get with it guys, christ.

@ColonCatastrophe I can respect someone when they have an approach like that. Regardless of the reason I think the site could still be a little bit more professional. Your 28 days later box is very minimalistic which is yes easier than a lot of other design but I critiqued instead of insulting it. Idk maybe I started with a chip on the shoulder when the person sent me the link and I saw the situation. I will delete my comments if he wants to delete his to remove the conversation.
