I wouldn't go that far, posting a thread to get people excited about an animation project seems like a good idea to me. It's just the weird freakout when people don't pay attention to you fast enough. This is an internet bulletin board. People are either going to pay attention to you or not, and they'll either give you their time or they won't. No one's obligated.
Actually it's kind of like real life that way.
Like I've put a hell of a lot of work into BrikWars, and it's been available on the internet for almost a million Internet Years, right? Now imagine if I started going around yelling at strangers in the Lego aisle who've never read BrikWars or played a battle. You'd think I was a retard, right? Well, actually I can't really assume what you would think, but I assure you that for any normal person, that's an instant diagnosis of retardism.
So it's nice when people appreciate it, I'm glad when people enjoy it, but I don't blow a brain vessel over whether or not people are paying attention right at that particular instant. You've just got to be chill.
