    Do you find it pleasant because thousands of people on Dribbble only respond with "great work!" - hoping you're gonna click on their profile doing the same for them?

    I'd argue Dribbble is one of the main reasons ego-trips and self-promotion became so prevalent in the community. It started out great tho; "show us what you're working on" instead of "make a great Dribbble shot!" - at this point it's fair to say Dribbble is the Instagram of the design world; mostly toxic.

      Dribbble is built on people putting up shots and I like the value of designers showing over telling. Our field is full of rhetoric and endless waxing. Hence why a story about us gathers more rote activity than stories about work and products of our peers. It’s nice to see the busy worker get their due.
