Yesturday I found another 3D artist forum so I went ahead and posted a help wanted thread for The Divine.Â (http://www.cgchat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=25285)
You can see from reading the thread that members keep on questioning my intentions. I understand where they are coming from. It does make clear sense that volunteer projects could be considered scams.
At the same time I’m replying to their posts with a calm tone. It’s important that in these situations you represent yourself and your game with a clear and conscise voice. If you lose your cool, you have lost a potential market for your game.
This will happen to you multiple times throughout your career, so just be ready for it. Always avoid a flame war.
