I was just about to suggest that you should be careful what you wish for, but I think you've figured out by now. Sometimes it's best to keep your nose to the grindstone and not worry about what people on the site are talking about. Actually, it's *always* best to do that.
No, wait... how about this: "Dan! You're a REALLY GREAT DESIGNER! Way to go, man! We support you! And we LIKE you! And we can't wait to see what else you come up with, because you're experienced and have an eye for detail! In fact, if you send one of these to me, I promise to hang it on my fridge!" ...is that what you're after?
