I've just published an article about my thoughts on dribbble and decided to have a little fun with the logo.

Thanks Dom, I appreciate the compliment - I'm just trying to be honest :)
Greta basketball and you're right about your article. Great point of view that i share.
It is elitist for sure, but it's difficult to see how the quality of work could be maintained if it were completely 'open'? I'm sure it's something the founders have discussed and agonised over since its inception...
I'm sorry, Rog... Rogie... who?... ;)
So whats your take on the differences between forrst and dribbble? Is forrst just a poor mans dribbble? more amateur? or am I just asking for trouble here......back to work.
Personally I don't think forrst is a poor mans dribbble at all.
For me they fulfil different purposes (not least because forrst is about more than just graphics). If I'm truly honest (and I really don't mean to piss anyone off on dribbble by saying this), I tend to get more in-depth and constructive feedback on forrst. Maybe that's as a result of it being a less competitive environment? I don't know?...
Another thing about forrst is you're not limited to a 400 x 300 shot, so you can show a 'complete' design, which makes it much easier for people for comment. A lot of the time on dribbble it's hard to have an opinion other than "well that looks nice", because you have no idea of the context.
I love them both and would encourage everyone to use both.
I'd second that thought, you do tend to get more constructive criticism on forrst. Posts tend to generate more discussion leading to inspiration in perhaps a different way!
