It's been a while since I've trolled through the forums, but goodness, every post is attacked with spam bots. Then, every tutorial you click is a popover ad that you got to wait x seconds before viewing the page. Has P2L really gone down hill this badly? Would be sad to see it go, was always such a good resource!

Yes, attack of the spam bots 0_0

It seems the the ratio of members to members posting is incredibly skewed. I had an account a long time ago on this site but lost the email attached and the account so i made a new one. To be honest, i probably did 100 tutorials on this site but didn't post 1 time. I think alot of people coming to this website easily fall in the same category. I love this website, it allowed me to learn how to get around in photoshop only being in my early teen years. Now im 21 and i've increased my skills tenfold!

I would definately help staff or admins that are still keeping this website alive

We're sorry for the time it took to find a solution, there is less spam now, you should be able to enjoy a better experience on our forums. Again, sorry for the inconvenience.

You guys really have ruined these forums.

 

What have you done around here? NOTHING.

 

You need to sell it to someone who ACTUALLY cares about the huge community here. 

 

You have ruined a perfectly awesome website with spam, ads, and just general lack of know-how in terms of running a community website. 

 

You should all be ashamed of yourselves for ruining this website for everyone.

It is sad what has happened to some sites. Talkfreelance, youngcoders, Pixel2Life, Zymic, etc all dying out. Not completely because someone is still paying for the hosting and domain name keeping the sites up. Sites I used to love. I found many tutorials from P2L and even submitted a few of my own back in the day.

 

 :(
