    A Few Questions...

    Morning all, well morning here!
    I'm buying a tablet ( WACOM Introus ) but I'm not certian about what size to get. 6x8 would do, but do you think I should go bigger? My sketches tend be in the range of 8"x8".
    Also,
    How come some posts get a flood of comments and others nada?
    and, what's the NOOB tag?

    thats too small...some of the students around here will disagree because that is what they are used to...but 9x12 is the smallest I would ever deal with simply because the others are not sensitive enough.

    I use a 12x18...android uses a 12x18...puddnhead uses a 12x18....etc..

    Why some posts gets a lot of replies, and some none...
    I guess you could debate on this forever and not really get a clear answer, but there are some things that make me post a reply, and some that don't...
    First of all, to make me read the message, the header should be somewhat descriptive...if it says "Why can't I read my PMs?", "How do I use this function?", "How do I upload files to a webhost?" or something like that, I'll probably read it. On the other hand, I would probably read a message with a weird header (as I'm the curious person and I want to know what the message really is about)...
    Now, if I actually read a post, there has to be some reason for me to answer it. A simple question, like "What's in your cd player?", "Which is your favorite music video?" or "Where do you live?" is kinda easy to understand and it doesn't take long to answer.
    Other posts, like this of yours, asks a question about Wacoms, which I know nothing about, and therefore I won't answer it. The other question (How come posts get a flood of comments and others nada? - the one I'm answering) was kinda interesting, though, so I decided to give my thoughts on it...
    It helps me if a post is well-written and I can actually understand what the person meant with it. I tend to ignore the extremely chaotical ones without punctuation and stuff...
    Also, I guess some people only check the topics which have already had some replies. And I guess that some, when it comes to commenting the art posted at this forum, only comment on the pieces where they can say "wow, this looks great!" or where they know exactly what they think about it ("this is good, but I think this looks a bit weird...you should change that...etc"). If you don't know what you think about something, I guess it's hard to say anything about it. ("Hey...I don't know what I think about this one...")

    I hope that helped a little bit...the end is probably kinda confusing...I'm too tired to do anything about it, though

    man, i'm kinda new to all this but i got a 9X12 a few months back. some people at school tried to convince me to go smaller. but i know, I KNOW! that if i would have gone any smaller i would have seriously regretted the purchase. it's a bit more money...but dude...just get a big one. if you think you will use it a good deal, there is no reason to go smaller.
