If they’re looking for advice on how to improve a prototype, I will give advice.  If however, they just spent hours making something, I’m not going to tell someone their project looks like crap.

I would say that there are constructive ways to be honest – you could offer an alternative that could HELP the person, rather than cutting them down.

Just telling someone something looks like crap is not constructive! Telling them “you could improve it by doing…” is much friendlier and much more helpful to the OP.

I know what you mean but I agree with MandaMack. If someone asks for advice I’ll be more than honest but if i think the project is crappy then I just don’t comment. I assume that it must just be a matter of taste… Plus its done so there is no point in hurting anyone’s feelings.
