Okay, maybe some other time I or someone else (if it ever gets that big) can fix this stuff up since I'm not a good formal typist, but here it goes—
I made this club so that those who have trouble operating different applications and software can come here to ask for assistance. I myself am pretty knowledgeable, so I will help the best I can and assist.
For those who are good or know more than the basics for different kinds of software and applications, you can come here to gain further tips/tricks/hints/help/etc. and also share with one another your knowledge.
I don't really know the best way to describe this club, but basically I created it as a means to help others and share information about types of software.
I myself have taken graphics design, animation, and know people who have taken video production in my school, which is partly one of the reasons I decided to make this club as well, considering:
My graphics design teacher knew JACK... he did not even know the difference between a html, php, webpage and a flash based animation advertisement (this website for example is different from an advertisement pop up... which is what he said was basically the same).
...and I myself had to teach this class along with my friend because most of the people who took it did not know much and our teacher knew even less but thought he knew it all. I could go on and on about how terrible he was but my point is he taught what, in my opinion, were less than the basics and even though he taught something, it wasn't right. So I was furious that my fellow friends and classmates were being taught something completely wrong and he was teaching multiple classes. Basically my point is that in my school (I don't know about others) there are some teachers who do teach well like my animation teacher... but then again there are those who can't teach and teach wrong things like my graphics design teacher...
...so because of this, I have decided to make this club (and might make one at my school) to learn different things and receive help if needed. XD
Be it graphical programs like Photoshop/Gimp/Illustrator or video/animation type programs like Flash/After Effects/Premiere/Sony Vegas/3DsMax, or coding, or just programs for other purposes; music mixing, conversion programs, anything you can come here to gain info on such and help if need be or learn new stuff.
For things like Sharing Applications and such, I have made a little response to such—
In response to such things as sharing applications, I am kinda in the middle. I do disagree with sharing applications and such if said person will never buy it at any time. I myself do not have the means to buy a lot of the software online, and around where I live there's not much resources to buy them at stores... however when I am able to and get the money, I plan to buy everything I have downloaded for free that I use frequently.
It may sound hypocritical, but think of it like this:
If a person used a free program to do something like graphic design or something they do not have as much resources—their full potential would not be recognized or they might suck at it and not like it at all.
I myself used to use free programs and did well but I hated how terrible the programs were. However, when I started using Photoshop, video programs, and animation programs, my abilities broadened—I became more interested in such things and learned more. Consequently, I might even do work in such fields. If I had only stuck to the free applications I would never have had such interests... and now that I might do work in such things I will now (when I can) pay for the programs.
My point (if not shown already) is that if people stick to free programs and not use shared copies then a lot of people might lose interest and/or give up on such things were if they could use the good programs they might likely go into such fields and because of this they must pay for the programs when getting a job in this field.
This would boost selling of applications, though in saying that I do not condone having a free copy of something and never intending to pay for it.
