LOL I don't know much text talk as I have worked as a legal PA before so I find it much easier to type things out the long way but "LOL" and "iykwim" seem to have stuck.  As for the rest of it I am just as clueless as you guys  ;)

Copycats!
When I first started several years ago I started out doing local supermarkets with what I thought was a friend. I liked to work 'with a friend' as it over come nerves I guess in the early days and you could bounce jokes off each other. However, I was the one buying the books (the Italian ones which you may know) and whatever videos / literature was available at the time. It was becoming apparent that every time we done a 'gig' he would start producing very much the same as me. It gets to a point where you don't mind sharing but it was all one way traffic with him not putting his hand in his pocket. I finally snapped one day when I was learning to Do Harry Potter from Shirley Rays instructions at home. He had been to visit me and saw what I was doing, then went. I got a phone call an hour later from him saying 'I've done 2 of those Harry Potters you were making, how much should I sell them for etc?' After a few home truths about him not buying things or chipping in with ideas his toys came out of the pram and we basically haven't spoke since.
The upside - I'm moving on looking for new ideas and designs he still does the models he learnt all those years ago.

We were hoping this topic would have got people joining in more and giving their honest thoughts and not just sitting on the fence.
It's nice that some have but with nearly 600 members I think Danny and I were hoping more would join in and contribute.
It's not too late!!!
Just because November has passed you can still add to this thread with your comments and thoughts
