it’s better to say there are ocs that need work
and honestly those blogs that are about getting rid of “bad ocs” and calling out how “shitty” they are are total bs
not only do they encourage people to be rude about ocs, but i’ve seen a lot of people get some super nasty and gross feedback after their ocs are posted there, which leads to those people being depressed and upset and a lot of the time ends up with an artist with lots of potential quitting what they love to do
i’ve also seen a lot of blogs like that that r rly over-dramatic and overbearing
instead of calling out “bad” ocs and trashing them they should calmly and politely explain how the ocs could be improved, not only that but ask the creator if it’s ok to do so first!! (and they should be willing to do it one-on-one with the creator in case the person isn’t comfortable with that stuff being public)
like hey i don’t care if u support those types of blogs, but i for one think they’re stupid and kind of unecessary sorry ( u _ u )
