Ok, it seems some people misunderstood what I meant on that journal. I was not bitching about fave-bombing. I don't even care when people fave-bomb my gallery. I love getting favorites and I'm the one who demans people comment before faving my work.

Favorites are always welcome and I appreciate them. The point of my last journal was to discuss what was in the person's mind who fave-bombed AND didn't watch. Did they want to get my attention? Are they the type that just likes coming to dA to just fave stuff they like without thinking?
I don't know, I just find it ilogical that someone fave-bombs your gallery (meaning they really liked your work) but didn't watch you to see more in the future.

No, this is not a "OMG I NEED people to watch me I want attention!" Just wanted to know what was in the person's mind. Curiosity, you know?

Oh and check this out crazyfreak.deviantart.com/jour…

Now I gotta go do college's homework. Peace.



Old post:
Recently I've had a few people fave-bombing my gallery and running. By "fave-bombing" I mean faving, like, 85% of my gallery and running away, not leaving a single comment and not watching me.  
They liked my gallery to the point of faving almost all of it, and then don't watch because they think there are no chances at all I'll do anything they like in the future? I mean, what are the changes (and the logic) of it happening?

Do they think that fave-bombing an artist's gallery is going to get their attention and get them to visit their galleries? Well, they're not gonna get a pageview from me, because I rarely check the galleries of people who fave-bomb mine.
Or maybe they're just don't care about this watching thing. Either one or another.

I don't feel flattered when people do that to my gallery. I see tons of  the "*insert username here* added xdeviation to their favorites" from the same person and think "okay?" I have no idea why they liked my work, what they liked on it, anything. It just seems their fingers were itching and pressed the +fav button without thinking.

Not that I mind, at all, I just find it...stupid.

Oh, check this out crazyfreak.deviantart.com/jour…


Phew, that turned out longer than I expected. Sorry about that.

I don't really sign up to follow an artist, but I do favoutrite the work that I like. I am not the type who uses the features, unless they are neccessary. It isn't that I dislike an artist, I just don't think that it's neccessary to sign up to a favourite artist. I favourite depending on whether or not I like a particular image, and the artists that I do like the work of, I have memorized their usernames. So it really isn't a neccessary thing for me.

There are certain artists who I've faved a large majority of their work, or maybe all their work of a certain type/theme. If I do though, I try to also remember to add them to my list of friends. I'll admit there are times when maybe I didn't, but should have, but I try to remember the best I can.

I guess for me, I don't mind if someone faves a lot of my works, and doesn't comment or watch, but that's just me, and I also understand those who do mind.

Hi, my name is Guilty!

Speaking as someone who has 8 babillion favorites ^^;

Sometimes I'll search, say, "Roy and Riza" (^_^) and I'll end up faving like 30 pictures in an hour, not realizing that 11 of them were from the same artist. DA has this nice, fandangled "oh, so you like this person? Watch them!" thingie, but that rarely comes up for me. Maybe I'm just weird o.o;

Now usually, if I notice this person makes up 80% of my favorited things, I'll watch them. I mean, it only makes sense. HOWEVER, for some people I like, I've chosen not to watch them - generally because they upload g34904ut4309tj34 pictures a day (and no, not sketch dumps or WIP's, zillions of photo's and fully rendered drawings) and my inbox has 120^6 things in it by them on a daily basis. o_o; Yeah, ok, a SLIGHT exaggeration but lol.

I'm weird o.o;

To be honest, I've never even considered (or even heard of) 'fave bombing' and how an artist might feel about it. In the future, I'll be more mindful of favoriting 4904830842 things from a person, as opposed to just watching them (+ favoriting ^^)
LuisaRafidi's avatar
Well, I have almost 1000 favorites. About the "you like this artist? The watch them" notice from dA, for some reason they removed it.

Well, there have been quite a few instances where artists just go through passing phases of art styles...so maybe they got what they wanted of you, figuring you'd never touch upon what they like again...who knows?

But then there's the people who make up alternate accounts to flame with...and adding faves makes it look like the account is established...despite the creation date.

And even then, there's probably a good deal of people who go and have way too many people's works to look at (possibly because they don't edit their settings to cut down on the deviations posted).

I would just say, this is like asking how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop...we'll never really know.

I got what you meant by your journal? You didn't sound like you were complaining to me, just wondering why you get a drive by fav sometimes. It's not a weird thing to wonder... I don't mind the favs, but at the same time it's like, "okaaaay?"
LuisaRafidi's avatar
Just felt I needed to edit because the last journal got misunderstood a bit.

ya I've gotten a couple of those too. They take me completely off guard and I tend to get a kick out of them. But it does tug at my curiosity as to why someone would go out of there way and fav over 50 deviations 0_0

Oh well, dont let it bug you too much ^^

Well, sometimes, thought it sounds strange, people don't watch you until you happen to watch them first... :o wierd, I know, but people have done the same to me.
crazyfreak's avatar
I really don't care about the fav bombs heck they promote your whole gallery into their favourites. A comment won't do that! Seriously be happy that you're actually populair. Other people who aren't as populair like you would find you pretty much whining. Appreciate the little things people give to you. Atleast they take time looking at your whole gallery.
LuisaRafidi's avatar
I don't think you got what I meant. I'm not whining, I don't give a crap when someone fave-bombs my gallery. I do appreciate all the faves I get, but I just keep wondering what the person was thinking when fave-bombing my gallery and running, not leaving a single comment or watching me. If they liked my gallery so much to fave-bomb it, it'd make sense they watch me to see more of my work in the future.

Some people mistunderstood what I meant with this journal. Some have even apologised to me, when they really didn't need to.
crazyfreak's avatar
They either already watched you, too busy watching, don't feel like watching you and skip to another ones page.

I'm not even going to try and think about what people are thinking of my artwork. Good that you edited your journal.
LuisaRafidi's avatar
Well you'd think they'd watch the person they fave-bombed so they can fave-bomb their gallery more in the future xD

And I think it's important to know what people think of your artwork, especially if you want to pursue an art career.
crazyfreak's avatar
ah maybe thats the difference between me. I don't want an art career I want a real estate career. The fanart people fav because it's fanwork. The original work however is better. Btw why don't you go to conceptart if you truelly want to know what people think. It's a way better site than Deviantart.
LuisaRafidi's avatar
Oh, I do have an account on Conceptart. I've posted once there because I'm waiting to have better material to post there xD
Celsa's avatar
I've gotten that as well sometimes, but honestly I never bothered to think about the reasons XD (I think I'm pretty careless...).
It may be also people that watched you before and didn't had the time to check the gallery back then and do now (I sometimes do that)
LuisaRafidi's avatar
I never thought of that possibility... It makes sense. But I think that after favinf an entire gallery, it'd be polite to leave at least a comment on the artist's front page. I've once gotten a comment from someone apologysing for fave-bombing my gallery and saying they love my art xD That was cool.
Celsa's avatar
XDD I'm usually super-polite (or I try) but still can't always comment and such. May happen to anyone I guess. Or maybe they think you won't reply.
Shrukan's avatar
Pardon if I do that, but I'm not really into commenting anymore. If it's a really good piece, I would say how wonderful it is.

Usually if I 'fave-bomb' if I do, I usually watch the person but... =\. These people are stupid. I don't really like people who fav only to get attention =\.
LuisaRafidi's avatar
I don't really care when people fave-bomb and run. It just doesn't add anything to me, you know? I just delete the messages and move on. But it does make sense when someone fave-bomb and watch - it shows the person liked your work for real and wants to see more.
Ayvuir-Blue's avatar
Well, it could always be worse- they could actually LEAVE comments :D. I LOVE YOUR WORK LUISA WHEN R U GUNA DRAW SOME INFLATION/STINKY FEET/DIAPERFURS/MY SONIC FAN CHARACTER??????????

(Though that's probably just an issue if you primarily draw pervy stuff ^^;.)

But yeah, it's awful, but these days I pretty much just Select All - Select X - Remove all Fave/Watch notices. Not that they're not appreciated, but there just isn't enough time in the day to track down all the fave-bombers and yell at 'em for not commenting :D.
LuisaRafidi's avatar
LOL Yeah, I really don't know what's worse - fave-bombing and running, or getting that type of comment! I pity you xD

When I arrived on dA and didn't have many watchers, it was completely possible to thank every single person who watched me / faved my work. Now it's just too many messages and lack of time to check them all. When a comment stands out to me, I usually thank the person or give a more "thoughtful" reply.
