Here's an example of what it means to make a mistake in thinking you know everything, and preaching arrogance, when you truly know not, and try not.

It may seem out of context, but that's because I deleted the original description out of respect for the person I tried to talk down to, and because I wouldn't have had enough characters for this. Anyway, here's a TL;DR:

I tried remastering a newbie mix again. Like the previous 'lesson', I barely put ANY effort into truly doing anything that could be actually helpful, and then I posted it online boasting like I was standing on a soapbox. The only reason you should listen to this track is if you don't believe me. I did something, but not nearly enough to act the way I did at the time. Worse, at the same time, in my description and comments I was putting one of the remixing artists down because I could not control my emotions and I have a problem with arrogance that I'm trying to work on. Luckily, my fellow community members took it upon themselves to tell me what I truly needed to hear. It was not to be mean, or to be "haters", but to put me in my place, or give me much needed advice, all in a good way. Whether they had prior motive or not, what they did made me realize the error I had made, and inspired me to learn and grow from this. What they did wasn't negative, it was positive. I just hope that someone, if anyone, can learn something from this and grow as well.

Sincerely, and apologetically,

Zir0h

P.S.

Stay classy, San Fran

    "Apparently, I offended him somehow by making a joke and he muted me but I still thought he deserved a credit." That's so generous of you lol

      "You shouldn't treat anyone on the internet any differently than as if you were speaking right in front of them" <-- This is what I try to do

      I am 25 I'll be 26 on valentines day, if you'd call that young. Some call me an old soul. Your implication, however, is justified, as I do have many things to learn, especially about how to treat people, not just online, but in life. You shouldn't treat anyone on the internet any differently than as if you were speaking right in front of them, and I do have trouble thinking before speaking. Thanks to you guys (or gals lol), I've had a moment of clarity tonight, and I will not forget it.

    Please believe that it is, in fact, genuine. I truly mean this. I am sorry, but I am also thankful with many of you for being so absolutely honest in telling me something that I was obviously too pompous (or stupid, or any similar term, I think they'd all apply) to realize not only in the moment, but before it even happened in the first place, which it should not have.

    I apologize to this community and I promise to make a better effort to be more respectful and less arrogant in the future.

    Your idea of "fixing it" is a rather unpopular opinion then

    I'm not looking for sympathy or forgiveness, for the latter will come from action, not words. That being said, I strive to be someone who stays true to their word.

    i also think i accidentally deleted @Icebox (hiatus) comment in the process of deleting any comment that didn't directly reference the absolute god awful way I went about this, and I seriously would undo that if it was possible. but for the record, in short, I believe he disapproves with my behavior as well.

    Yeah I'm going to go ahead and say this was an absolute mistake. Seeing as how many of you have reacted to this and what I've said, and after taking time to reread, and re-evaluate this myself, the more I agree, and thus, the more I am ashamed. If I strive to teach and encourage, this is not the way to do it. I would be deleting this track right this moment , but it deserves to be left here because I want it to serve as a reminder not just to me but anyone who reads it

    You claim to have improved a "newbie mix" yet it sounds lifeless and confused. You can make edits of tracks but don't be a dick about it. This is an amazingly effective way to discourage improvement.
