This is a fun spin in the "comments are appreciated" debacle. I wanna use this, thanks for the effort of making it!^^ 


To anyone else who might see this stamp and feel like saying "oh but my inbox is always so full! I don't have the energy to comment on all of them! Appreciate my fav at least." Chill, the artist does appreciate them, but the social aspect is kinda lost. Humans tend to be social. We don't need constant praise, but interaction might lead to more inspiration/motivation.

That said, you don't have to comment on 'ALL ZE ART.'
Ex. If someone uploads 5 images a day, of the same thing, with not a lot of context, basically the same pose for all the chars, i.e. hard to come up with something to say for each of them. Then don't. Comment on the one of the five that you like the most. 
I've also struggled with having energy to properly comment on stuff in my inbox. So I took some drastic measures. 
-I dropped people who were not my mutual friend/watcher, and focused on the ones who were. I ignore the inactive friends, they're just on break, no need to drop. We can kinda control not getting too much into our inbox that way. 
-I still do 'clean ups' now and then. If I've fallen out of friendship with someone, or I noticed they stopped following me, and they're no longer posting things I care for, I drop em like a hot potato.^^
There's no hurt feelings, since it's not like they're gonna notice I stopped following them. And if they re-follow me later and we rekindle our friendship, get more common interests again- great! I'll re-follow em back! 

My point is, don't feel pressured to follow people that you're not interested in communicating with, or when you find yourself faving their art out of pity. You're helping no one.
Not a lot of people check their favs after they initially faved the art. Either due to guilt-faving, or for not having a system/faving waaaay too much!
Build yourself a smaller friendlist with actual friends, and have folders in your faves if you can, so you can easily find it again, or promote it on your profile page. 
The fav folders can take some time if you never had a system. But you can start one today (if you can make folders), and use it moving forward.^^ My friends do, so when I see them fave but but comment, I know they'll find it later and comment then.

And to the people using fav-bots in order to increase traffic to their profiles. ....Really?? Pageviews are that important to you?
It feels like a slap in the face when I visit people's fav gallery(because maybe they fave stuff similar to what I draw and like also wanna look at) just to find my art is swamped 100 pictures down (and I sometimes check like 3 sec after I get notified), and it's all just typical "newest deviation" art, with no system, just ticking in. So obvious, so lame. These people also very often don't talk to people on their profile, or have deviations in their gallery. They literally use dA as a popularity contest. Which is sad. They must have bad self-esteem. :/ 



Please keep in mind that you can control what you get into your inbox. If you notice a friend is doing the "same pose, nothing to add" thing, maybe ask them if something is up, let them know it's becoming a strange pattern. Alternatively You can leave the art in the inbox, and comment on a day where you feel more energetic!^^ Your friend will understand because they know you well, and you might build stronger friendships from having less "meaningless noise" around you. We live in an amazing age of connectivity, but often we get lost in the sea of people, forgetting that we don't need the biggest ship. A small dingy can be good enough for you and your friends.^^

Okay, this was long, if you read all of this, you deserve a hug. :hug: Take care.

Dude, if you comment on my artwork, you just made my YEAR! Comments are really rare for me, as I get fave-bombed whenever I post something new and nobody bothers to comment. In my opinion, I think that it's really, really rude to favorite and not tell the artist what you think. I'm on my knees, praying that DA will come out with a new feature disabling faves. Please, please, pleeeeaaasssse? :please:
