Okay I know this isn't as good as the "Original Comment before you Favorite Stamp" but I wanted to make one too cause I know sooo many people get annoyed when people go crazy and don't comment or critique the work first
So if you agree, please, feel free to use this all you want
Scroll down and on the right hand side you will see 3 boxes with text in them. Copy the text in the box that says Thumb, and past it were you would like to put it. You need to be premium to use it in comments, but if your not you can put it in Journals and your front page.
I hate it when people fave without commenting! I work pretty hard on my pictures and I don't get comments very often. And I care about opinions alot more than faves. I would prefer a comment over a fave any day.
i rather take comments than favs anyday. if u dont have time to comment on 1 of ur favs, bookmark it or come back to it later. or people are just lazy to take 2 minutes of their time to write even a 1 word comment
I would prefer it, too. But it's arrogant to DEMAND it, as though the people who view your art somehow owe you their time. What's more, if you force a comment when someone might just have nothing to say, you're basically asking for a bunch of "cool"s or "awesome"s, which aren't any better than faves -- anyone can type "cool." If somebody faves something it means they like my work. I'd prefer critique or a comment, but in the end they like my work and I'm not going to FORCE them to comment, especially since they just complimented me by faving. That would be like saying, "a compliment's not enough. GIVE ME MOOOORE, because how dare you just be in a hurry or not have anything to say or critique. HOW DARE YOU?!" Which is, as I've said, incredibly arrogant.
I don't see what the big deal is. I mean, people who don't comment when they fave usually don't have anything to say. A favorite means that they found your deviation special and really liked it so they favorited it, but they still didn't have much to say.
Would you rather have a bunch of favorites, or a bunch of pointless comments like "Cool" or "That's pretty!" ?
People WILL favorite without commenting. Making a stamp or complaining about it will change nothing.
Which is exactly why a lot of people prefer to fave rather than comment.
I favorite artwork way more often than comment. Sometimes I do both, but it's mostly just faving. Why? Because as someone who hates one-word comments, I don't like leaving one-word comments. If I have nothing to say, but I do like the picture, then I will favorite the picture without commenting.
Exactly. It doesn't mean much. To me, it doesn't mean they thought much about it, it means "Oh, hey, this is kind of interesting" *click* and never think about it again. So, I would LOVE for people to comment before faving. Heck! I'd appreciate it if they commented and DIDN'T fave!
