Who suggests what might be a good piece of information to have, esspeically if you are asking content creators - like Spoon (sorry for singleing you out)-It's actually super puzzling to me why you decide to single me out here. I mean, what shows have I actually personally recommended in here? (outside of the 11/10 masterpiece bible black, fun for the entire family.)
Some of the people who could concieveably post here also have well documented pet peeves, likes and dislikes, in case of Spoon they are quite obvious through is work. So combing that knowledge with the recommendation could be quite helping. Esspecially in cases when consensus is building from very different people.
You assume, presume, suppose and infer that I am somehow a good example for the point you are trying to make. You say that I have 'well documented' likes and dislikes.
what I draw inspiration from for WoD is a really small sample base from all of the shows I've actually watched (which is around 570ish according to mal).
Okay, my argument was badly strucuted - I concede to that...
Singling you out was mostly because you were the first person that came to mind when I looked for a content creator here on HLP whose work was not derivative from FS2 ('cause originality) and who has a public presence (one of your admirable traits is that you keep a public profile and keep your fans in the loop).
There was no ill intend here when I procceeded to talk about that you can generally find works that inspire a content creator when you look at their work closely - even if the exact name of said inspiration escapes you as member of the audience.
I would have stood as my own example if not a) I am not nearly as prolific as you when it comes to released content, b) I don't actually like to maintain a public presence for various reasons and c) any list of my inspirations would lead off topic, esspecially when I reference some obscure **** (e.g. the upcoming The Lost Generation - Ashcroft
is inspired by a subgenre of 19th century adventure novels in such a way that tries to mimic a central trope but to without the bull**** patriachical baggae of majority of entries in said subgenre*)
* Whetever or not I accomplished that is one of great insecurities about that story - that's why I took on another writer recently.
When I actually do try my hand at recommending someone an anime series, I always try to recommend stuff based on what I think someone might end up liking, rather than just listing them my favorite mecha shows. Since I don't really know Joshua, I just gave him that rather helpful chart instead, so he can come up to his own conclusions.
I don't dispute your good intentions.
As I was trying to express earlier, a recommendation from someone whose inspiration for his/her own works can be traced to works of the genre (even my a hack like me) can be helpful in a different way. Any recommendation you or I make will be contextualized with what either of us has created by anyone who knows it, giving them a unique apprication for both the inspring and resulting content.
Additionally, "I like what they do, maybe I like what inspired them" is a valid line of going forward. Heck, that's how I arrived at my apprication for 1920-1930 Hollywood's cinematography (you know how got stuff into movies despite the Production Code).
You know what you did wrong (and it's not what you think), right? You tell me what I did wrong exactly, my posts were great, amazing and of exceptional quality.
I'll just honestly never understand why people have to go out of their way to tell someone to stop liking something they don't like. Or to have their only contribution to a topic be "I don't like it." I mean, I've probably done my fairshare of it back when I was younger, but then I grew up and realized I was being a jerk for no reason for doing that.
Why do you cut off the next line? - The "too much coffee"-remark was the telling part.
This was more about you getting more frantic and somewhat disruptive to the discussion after you posted your "chart to end all charts". You kinda undermined your own intent to help in my opinion.
(My dislike for double-posts might not be well known - I prefer to edit my posts unless they have been replied to. I know many people do it differently but I prefer to do that way)
The "it's not what you think"-part was in reference to your own post:
Ah **** I forgot, I am posting in the bad part of hardlight, time to bail.
And you just know engaging an obvious non-entry into the discussion by Hades might not turn out to help this discusion escape the looming threat of a self-reinforcing shouting match.
