Roxxxy, you are hilarious! I'm sure a majority of people feel like you.

It's a free service with thousands of users, we can't be picky. Everyone has different expectations of CC. We just gotta take what we get. I personally am happy when anyone looks at my cakes, and I don't think I do a bad job.

Other than that, some people just aren't good at wording things and/or showing excitement. You can make my brother's favorite meal and tell him you're taking him to Disneyland tomorrow and he'll say "Oh, okay...." like you dejected him. This is his excitement.

Roxxxx I totally agree. Its like you are damned if you do and damned if you don't. If you don't leave a comment there is going to be a post about getting no comments. If you leave a comment its not good enough. If you even viewed the picture, you better leave a comment, but it can't contain any generic words. Has to be constructive and totally unique, but remember not to be too harsh because you might hurt someones feeling.

I am personally happy when anyone takes a look at my cakes. Leave all generic comments you would like. Don't leave a comment at all. I really dont care. I really have more to worry about. I don't decorate cakes for the comments here on CC. They are just an added bonus.

No, you're not the only one - just like when I did psych nursing all those years ago - I had to quit because I got tired of handing out the pity pot all the damn time. At some point, I just couldn't empathize/sympathize with some people's problems, ya' know? I was like Cher in Moonstruck - I just wanted to slap them, and tell them to snap out of it!! I'm not an insensitive person, but enough, already!!

Maybe mine is hormones - ya' know - old and that time of year icon_wink.gif

I could swear that a few weeks ago, someone posted about not getting comments, and someone else on the forum told them that so many cakes are uploaded every day, if yours doesn't get noticed, just put up a post asking people to look at the cake. I did this just yesterday, I had posted a new cake that I was very proud of and not too many people had looked at it. I wanted some feedback, so I (politely) asked for some on the forums.
I don't consider this whiney, I didn't ask for lots of comments, just if people had time, check it out and let me know what you think.
I get frustrated on here by people complaining about other people wanting CC'ers to look at their cakes. Isn't that why we put them on here? And isn't it natural to want people to admire something you did that you're proud of? I am more sick of people whining about the whiners.
Just my opinion, sorry if you don't share it.

It is ok with me if they whine, I guess. I don't like it when I respond to their whines and get attacked by everyone for my opinion.
For the people who really want comments on their cakes, we have 3 theme of the month things going:
cake theme of the month.
cookie theme of the month.
one tip theme of the month.
If you put a cake picture in there, everyone comments on it. So far we have about 3 photos in each one. If you want comments, get creative, decorate a cake for the theme, post it and set back and wait for the comments.

Well said Wjk! I don't even like to post anymore because I'm affraid it's gonna get misconstrued and start a whole other argument. I still enjoy looking at all of the great cakes. But that's about it!

There are so many posts just like this one, that are way off the topic of cake decorating and the like, and that are destined to go nowhere constructive. Threads like this are just opening up controversy, I'd appreciate if a moderator could move this somewhere more appropriate or lock the thread, we all know where it's going anyway.

JMO, no offense inteded to the OP or anyone. It's just not constructive.

Believe me I am in NO WAY whining. I just wanted to know if anyone else gets annoyed but the constent post about nagging about what they post and what people write and dont write. Its an everyday thing. I thought CC was here for education purposes. Everyone that post cakes on here work hard on there cakes so i guess I just think that no one should feel like there cakes should get more attention then someone elses. Everyone works hard on a cake they are proud of.

I agree.

I just read a post where someone she got one comment on the cake she/he made and post in the forum. One day after posting her cake she/he got 15 comments. Too much whiny.


Cake Central - awesome site

Lots of cakes posted everyday.

Lots of topics posted everyday.

Lots of members not everything can be seen by all. Be happy, enjoy the site.

I know that people will get upset with what I am about to say so please forgive me but isn't this thread then whining about other threads that have been started. Sorry but this is just my opinion!

I do agree that his is for educational purposes for decorating cakes and getting ideas and help. I feel that more of the threads have been less about cakes and what not and complaining what others have said. Things are being said that have been very hurtful to other CCers and that is not why we are here. I feel that we are here to help and enjoy eachothers creativity.

Sorry if I have offended anyone with this!!

janicecold- you are not offending me. i just think that CC had turned into a big Wwwaaaaa fest and what we come on here for is getting lost in all these threads. i used to come on CC everydayto read threads and look at pics but now i been turned off by leaving comments because they arent good enough and generic and the person who posted the cake will be upset. if you dont like the comment you get turn your comments off and if no one sees your cake then sorry but dont post a thread just so you gets tons of comments because you have made people feel bad

I just want to know if anyone can help me find a picture of Pumpkin Cake that seems to have disappeared. I swear I put it in my Favs but it's not there.

It was very pretty and well done, looked like it was ceramic instead of cake.

Can anybody help.

Thank you Nic611, but that is not the one either. It is very pretty though.

It is a regular pumpkin orange with some luster dust vines the own bit. I did search the galleries and all the ones I looked at were not it. I think I'm losing it.

Can't we all just get along? Seriously, we make cake people. Cake and cookies and lots of frosting. What could be better than that?

We also have a FREE site to learn new techniques and find inspiration. Can you imagine what it would cost to buy books and DVDs to teach us everything we learn here? I love CC but I do feel like reaching through the screen and slapping some sense into people lately. This concludes my whining.

Isn't there a t-shirt that says " women must bi*ch or they will blow up"? icon_razz.gif

it does get a little old, but like someone else says, sometimes I need the drama. Sometimes I do think we all need to keep an open mind, though. We don't know each other and what we're going through. Sometimes this might be the only support system people have.
