Right, few things about /p/ culture. Slow board. Very slow. Gearfaggotry/brandfaggotry threads and threads infused by political drama (by way of the subject of photos), or local tripfag/namefag drama (see the chosis thing) will always gain more traction because most people are retarded everywhere you go. I suggest you ignore board celebrities - some namefags and tripfags are alright, but there's no reason to not remain anonymous on 4chan, so the majority of those who break anonymity are bound to be faggots.
Most people use the /rpt/ (recent photo threads) if they only have one photo to post, but you're more than welcome to start a new one, just know what to expect. The amount of criticism you got here in this time span is above average for the rate at which this board moves. Constructive criticism is rare, but being rude doesn't mean you're not being constructive. I was being honest here >>3481240
. Most of what you will get will be shitposting and monosyllabic grunts, but that goes the same for any internet forum - just that you get more positive monosyllabic grunts in places where you don't post anonymously because there's an incentive for lying. Curate what you pay attention to, curate your photos before displaying them to your public, curate the criticism you deem worth of your attention and engage with those you deem worthy.
That's /p/, but 4chan is not a monolith, newfag.
