 I like to know their gender and age/age-range, but I don't mind if they're not comfortable sharing that information.
But I always want to know what shows/books/movies/games, etc. that they like x3

I generally like to know the gender and age so that I know how to act around them. Wouldn't want to act all dorky with someone older or younger than me. Any other information would be if we've been friends for a while and want to meet someday.

I usually like see what the artist is into, what their likes/dislikes are, just generally WHO the artist is, not just what they draw.

I'm late to this one. I generally enjoy reading more about the artists I watch, and even the ones who watch me! I tend to seek out "about me" links and things like that. If it's not there, it's no big deal, though. The first two things I normally look for are a name and gender, that way I'll know what to call them, if needed.

It is interesting to find out a little about them (their age, sex, nationality), but it is incredibly risky for them. After all, there is so much cyberbullying online and I don't want them to risk their internet safety simply because I'm too nosy. All that matters to the artist online is what type of person they are and what their art is like.

Ah, it depends on the kind of information I think. People are often very cautious, but not all information is really risky to share (full name is not a good idea if you're underaged, and your address/telephone number obviously should not be given out publicly, but nationality or sex doesn't really reveal anything in itself as a country is too big to find one person in it without any more specific information :shrug: It depends!

You're right; I just get a little cautious online because I'm under 18. Not by much, but its still disheartening when you still have to consider your safety.

Indeed; remember the film "Cyberbully"? People can be really cruel when they want to be.

It's a film about a teenager who is bullied online. It may be heavily dramatised, but the film does illustrate the seriousness of carelessness on the internet, bullying in general and what effect it can have.

I like knowing a lot of stuff about them like their age (roughly), gender, sexuality, country, favourite colour, eye and hair colour, and stuff like that. It's interesting. 
I love seeing if they have anything in common with me. :3

 I definitely must know their gender, also age, not exact, just a rough idea, like whether they're college students or highschoolers or possibly younger! (there are some 10-12 year olds who are crazy good for their age) :wink: rvmp
