Why Creators Should Never Read Their Forums

spidweb writes “One full-time Indie developer writes about why he never goes to online forums discussing his work and why he advises other creators to do the same. It’s possible to learn valuable things, but the time and the stress just don’t justify the effort. From the article, ‘Forums contain a cacophony of people telling you to do diametrically opposite things, very loudly, often for bad reasons. There will be plenty of good ideas, but picking them out from the bad ones is unreliable and a lot of work. If you try to make too many people happy at once, you will drive yourself mad. You have to be very, very careful who you let into your head.’”
