"Critique: Optional"
« on: August 19, 2013, 01:24:57 AM »
(I'm not sure whether this is the right place to post this. Where do discussions about y!Gal itself go?)

y!Gal has three options for critique on one's artwork: Encouraged, Discouraged, Optional.
The first two I get, but what's "optional"? It's not like the latter two imply that it's required. Is optional like saying "I don't know if I want critique on this, so be very gentle if you give me any" or what? I just don't get it. I tend to understand the first two as "critique is accepted" and "no critique at all please", so having that third options seems redundant.

If you've ever used the Critique: Optional setting on your submissions, what did you mean by it?
