Am I the only person who actually values a favorite more than a comment?

Sure, it's nice to have someone take the time to leave a comment, but a favorite means the submission (theoretically) shows up on another person's page. It's bonus advertising.

I guess this could be me thinking rather utilitarian, however.

Well...I do get lots of favourites and it has helped me get a LOT more attention, including, oddly, on way-older pictures I never thought anyone would notice.
On the other hand, some of my most-hard-worked-on pictures have many favourites yet not ONE person has said to me what they like about it with _words_. So...

I guess I'm the comments-over-favourites type...but I do see the _value_ of favourites. (shrug)

You're not the only one, although I hadn't so much thought about it in those terms as that a favorite means somebody likes a deviation enough to want access to it at a moments notice whereas a comment could be literally anything, including spam, trolling, or the ever-present "first" comment.
