Now let me explain here. I do not expect tons of people to "follow" me for my skills, and my skills are not of an amazing designer.
I do need feedback from most of the members here, which I don't get unless I create something extremely good ("cool" "awesome" "nice work man!"). Which is understandable and also nice sometimes but on the other hand, it is my designs that S*CK, the ones that need constructive feedback.

I second this! I don't post just to get a pat on the back! When my work is viewed hundreds of times without a word - that doesn't do anything for me. I want the advice and opinions of fellow designers!
@Sean Lester exactly and its most likely that we as designers coming from all over the world, we do not have competition. So if I don't get feedback for my works it might be the case that I stay stagnant and never evolve in my skills.
@Angelos Arnis I like this post! I myself do not get many likes but I do receive some very good feedback. After seing quite a few different posts of this nature I have sworn to myself to give more feedback. I do give some feedback though, some of it very constructive.
Thats the point right? I am not gonna steal your clients or something so why can't we make each other better at something.
Dribble is in fact a popularity contest, haha hate to burst your bubble.
My bubbble is not burst @jake counsell :)
I use Dribbble more as a portfolio nowadays and an easy link to my works. I occassionally like to give feedback as well. Would I want more? Yes! Give more? Yes!
That's what I want to pass to people anyway, through this rebound. Even 1 at a time its a big change :)
I totally agree with you angelos, it's blisteringly clear that the follow model doesn't work. My dribble is used as a portfolio / street cred. But i would love for them to redesign the "popular" area to be more about good design and less about twitter whores.
Ah @jake counsell you have it slightly wrong there the phrase is not twitter whore, we have herbivores, carnivores and dribbblivores! haha
