Great, Unknown Builders Are The Best


marsPD_1, originally uploaded by agencyORANGE.

I absolutely love when I find a relatively unknown builder on flickr who has some really great creations that have gone almost completely undetected. Take this Mech by agencyORANGE, it is a very great creation and it only has one comment on it. What has happened to people actually appreciating good creations? It is all but gone. In fact, almost all of acencyORANGE's creations are quite good, but have almost zero recognition. Whats with that?

Agreed; AO's stuff is very good. I think on Flickr you need to establish contacts (the good ones are also key influencers), comment on other builders MOCS add favourites and so on before you start to draw attention yourself. I've added a paltry two MOCs to Flickr but managed to get a reasonable amount of feedback (My username is smudgely). I don't think it is down to any intrinsic quality in my stuff - I just "played the game" (though not in a cynical way I hasten to add - I genuinely like all the builders I follow and comment on). Flickr has a short attention span too; you only have a small window of opportunity to attract comments before people move on. The prolific and quality builders keep the ball rolling and gain the following they deserve.

How is this micro?

@Marc: They're not. I suspect someone has their blog accounts mixed up...
