When I make that art trade journal... sometime... I will ask for you to fill out something. I won't accept trades with anyone without said info. For people who don't bother to read and thus don't include it:

I should ignore those comments completely, and not even consider trading with them. I would feature comments with correct information instead, for me to pick from.

I should reply to them telling them to actually read the journal and then comment again.

I should simply hide all comments with wrong or no information.
The information I'd ask for would be: - The characters they want me to draw, and how many (proper refsheets included), - Which characters of mine they want to draw in return, - The kind of picture they would make (examples appreciated).
Last time I opened art trades, a glorious 50% of all comments did it wrong, and it was a pain to ask for people to actually read what I typed. Same thing with other things I organize or journals, people just. Don't. Bother. To. Read. Thing is, I want to know what I will have to draw and get in return before I'd accept the trade, and people still commented with "I'll tell you what I want as soon as you accept!" NO???
