Hello and welcome to my journal!
First of all, I would like to wish deviantART a Happy Brithday!
nobody's feeling lonely
this great week!
So...Happy Birthday deviantART!!!
--> For all my devious friends!
To people new to my page;
don't worry, the hidden messages on my page are all the "Thank you for the favourites/watch/llama" so it kind of fills the whole page
...if you want to thank me, then you can either just come on my page and gimme a pageview, or give me a llama. From now on, I will answer to the "thnx for the..." messages then hide both comments. It's not against the rules to do this!
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and if you want further information, read the paragraphs below. Thank you again.
What each thing means to me: (just to clear any confusions)
fun thing to give to someone so they can give you one back It doesn't mean you absolutely adore their artwork, or love them to bits...it's just a fun game-like thing! If you give me a llama, I can guarantee you that you'll get one back from me as soon as possible!
you only favourite somebody's artwork when you like it,
and you certainly do NOT do that just to get page views. Sometimes I find myself favouriting an artist's whole gallery, but you might notice that I leave out some art. I only +fav someone when I really like it; if it's funny, cute, realistic, emotional...you get the idea.
-Watch --> I really don't like when people add other deviants to their watch just to get a +watch in return. I only watch ppl/groups where I think that the person produces good artwork and/or I'm a person's friend. I don't give llamas to get a deviant +watch.
-Comments --> I'm always against destructive criticism.
It's OK to criticize if you think that the person is doing something wrong, but comments like "You suck! Give up you'll never be good!" are really bad, most likely to get deleted or the person to be reported.
Other than that, I love when people comment my artwork! Another thing...I HATE spammers. If you find an actual good site that you think I'll enjoy and advertise it, it's fine. But saying "I GIVE LLAMAS FOR FREE COME TO MY PROFILE AND GIVE ME POINTS" is just...dumb. I mean, who's even gonna GO there? It reminds me of ppl calling
to tell you that you've won a fridge but it's on the other side of the planet! I mean, just don't do it
-Points --> either the person has given you something, or you're becoming good friends. Although you could have some spare points in your dev account and you want to give them to someone. For me, each point is special. I'd like to thank everybody who donates/donated to my donation pool! Remeber-llamas for every donner!
-Pageviews --> I totally hate when people want more and more pageviews and start getting annoying!
It really saddens
me because people are starting to get more enthusiastic about getting pageviews, points, watchers, and llamas rather than seeing, creating and sharing art! I really don't like how people get points only to donate to this person who gives them pageviews...why are people so hungry
for views? Anyway, I don't know what to think about pageviews
Well, hope that helped you understand what each thing means to me. Thank you very much for reading this.
