It does not reflect my opinion by Blue-Uncia It does not reflect my opinion by Blue-Uncia
Because it needed to be said. The whole "comment if you fave" drama is annoying enough when people plaster it all over their descriptions. I don't think dA should take an active stance in the debate.

Or make it look as if I'm desperately sitting behind my computer, waiting for more comments.

I miss the cute little "thanks" message you got when faving something. It was far more polite.



Stamp template: [link]

Message: Print-screened from dA.



EDIT: Oh, and by the way, I'm keeping a journal on v.7 complaints and bugs (and how to navigate around them if at all possible). This is intended as a helpful, though somewhat messy list, not as a rant journal. Feel free to check it out. :)

EDIT 2: Made the animation go a bit faster.

I have gotten used to it by now, to be honest. I just ignore it now. I wish we could customise the message!

I laughed when I saw this stamp xD

Actually now that I think of it... When someone favs my art, a crotch will tell them to not forget to comment :iconteheplz:

When I was new at dA, I faved quite a few artworks without commenting. Then, I found out that most artist hate it when you don't comment, felt guilty, and ever since, I sit there thinking: "What can I say?! What CAN I SAY?!" Sometimes, I can write a novel about why I love a piece; other times, it just appeals to me, but I don't have any words to describe that. So, I end up saying something random and feel guilty, still.

I'm glad to see that some people wouldn't mind it if I didn't comment. ^^'' Now that I have my own art posted here (well, it's just one piece, but 1 > 0), I know how exciting it is to get a comment, but I still think that people should only comment when they got anything to say, not just because they HAVE to.

So, thanks for the stamp. :D

I can see where you're coming from. Just don't sweat it. I'm sure most artists are grateful for just a fave and no comment. It still meant you liked their art, right?

I'm not sure I understand?

It refers to the speech bubble which pops out of your avi when someone faves your work, demanding a comment too.

Personally, I don't think people NEED to comment and fave, if they just want to fave and run.

I think we should be able to make our avi say what we want to say! That would be cooler and less likely to look like we're begging.
That little "Thanks" was better also, I almost forgot about it ^^;

I agree. The first time that happened to me I was like "WHAT?!" It's stupid. Then I felt obligated to leave a one-word comment. Blargh.

Maybe next if you leave a comment your avi will pop up going "Don't forget to fave this picture!"

Wow, very good stamp, I'll use it! :) There are just so many pics where only a fav can say how much you like it. And far from that it gave me sort of compunctions which have never been there before and shouldn't be there at all, too, because giving comments is nothing you should be "enforced" to in that way.

Btw, it's so weird to see this line when comments are disabled :o

Ah the irony of faving without the narcissistic comment. Got love the drag and drop technique :3

I agree, I don't think it's right to pressure people into making comments and really do wish that the admins would give us the options to disable it.

I agree with you. That new speech bubble seems really obnoxious.

I go faving things and don't leave a comment because I don't have anything useful to add. Too many people leave meaningless comments just to comment or get pageviews.

Yeah I hate that too. I mean comments are nice and all but a fav is good enough. Some people just don't like to comment and shouldn't feel obligated to do so. The fav is acknowledgement enough of someone taking the time to look at your work and show that they like it.

true. Oh the fun we would have. My problem is that I wouldn't know what to say. When, (if) I get my comic started, I'm not sure what I'm going to say in the descriptions. I'm not good with those. lol

I always roll my eyes when I see that message pop up – and that although I have never been part of the whole "comment or not comment"-debate. It is just an annoying feeling when I have to think that a website tries to tell me what to do.

That is usually when I do the exact opposite, since listening to websites mostly ends in giving out personal information. Luckily we are not that far on DA yet.
