There is nothing that beats your own confidence and certainly you do not need any one else to validate you.

But still, it feels really nice when someone else appreciates your work. So go and make someone else’s day, listen to some demos and let the ones that you like know that you like their efforts – either private message or urge others to check out the stuff you heard in the forums.


And besides I am finding the more people that I check out and comment on, the more that reciprocate. Not the driving force here, just a really nice side effect.
