Comment Before Faving, Plz. by Nocturia Comment Before Faving, Plz. by Nocturia
Made in a sort of indirect response to a stamp I've seen here on dA, claiming rather rudely that, "I'll fave without commenting, deal with it." A lot of people favorite without commenting, and I, for one, am against that. This is why, unless you upload like more than twenty pieces in mass and I would get to sound very repetitive, I either comment and fave, or don't comment and fave at all. o.o; But, however, realize what the stamp says. "So am asking you to comment before faving." Not demanding, asking. I've had people get on my case before just because I stated in the Artist's Comments that I would very much like the person planning to 'fave and run' the piece to drop a comment. It's like it's a sin to do that or something.

The meaning of this stamp? You're entitled to your own opinion, but if the artist asks in the deviation that you drop a simple ten second comment before faving, please, do it. Not many artists ask that, so it doesn't really take that much out of your day. :\ It's just common courtesy to do that, and, which, by the looks of a lot of the stamps concerning 'fave and run's, there's not a lot of that there.

Please, respect the artist, and give the feedback they so very well deserve.

Almost all my artworks have 0 comments, but that is logical since only a few have one or two faves and most have less than 15 views.

I usually get many faves, but only a single comment...
mysteriouskey Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Le me: *gets 100 favs on an artwork, still have 0 comments on it*
Sideshow-Cellophane Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2016  Hobbyist Artist
Oh, I track down whoever favorites twenty submissions and runs. XD I'll ask them why they liked it at least, but it's usually "Because it was good."

That doesn't help at all. XP

I sometimes can't think of anything special to say out of the other 500 commenters or other large number... :sweatdrop: revamp v2 But I do try. Big Grin

I will use this stamp for sure! I like it when people comment on my works rather than fave and run >_<
AzamiMatic Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
agree dude. it is annoying having ONLY FREAKING FAVES in my account i have multiple notifications of people like atmp, trollwaffle etc..
ReenvhAi Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Totally agree! This stamp will go to my +fav  gallery
And personally I like the emote ohnoes :ohnoes: ^.^

sorry, I know my comment is very old :blush:
makeyourownmusic Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2014
Totally agree with this :nod: I too get a lot of faves without commenting, which is annoying especially as I am not that good at drawing and do appreciate the feedback on what I can improve on. I understand sometimes people dont know what to say, and I dont mind some faves and no comments, but sometimes I feel that some people just automatically fave without thinking, a bit like people wjo will just randomly watch you without ever having spoken to you...
MusicAndArtRocker Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes. So yes. I go onto my account, see I have 20 feedback messages or whatever amount, go "Yay, I have comments!"...and it turns out 90 percent of them are people that have faved without saying a thing. Seriously, even though I'm in a bunch of groups, still no one bothers to speak.

Good thought, but I play three ways, either comment then fave, comment and not fave, or fave and not comment. Three ways to show appreciations for the art is better than NO WAYS in my opinion.

Hazelnut-Eyes Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Completely agree.
I always wake up with enthusiasm when it says "100 new feedback messages"
I'm like Oh yay!~
I have 100 comments! :dummy:

Nope... Turns out 100 people have fav'd and run. Meh. _
LiolfLW Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I hate when people fave and run. It makes me think they just go around and fave everything they see so they can get popular. So it's like they don't ACTUALLY like your work, they just want to get popular. It makes me feel like they actually LIKE my work when they take the little time to comment, even if it's "I like this!" or "Nice job!" it makes me feel better then "_____ Faved ______" and didn't leave a comment at all.
Fraised Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I very much agree with this. It's nice when people favorite my art because it shows that they like it! But I get so annoyed when they don't leave a comment. :icondragonmadplz: Whenever anyone works hard on any piece of art, they deserve feedback for it.
Digiatsu Featured By Owner May 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I totally agree with the stamp and the description. So many people fave my art without commenting and it annoys the crap out of me.
yuki-oto Featured By Owner May 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is so true! I wish people would take heed to this!

TheNewWaddedpaper129 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
hell it's rare i even get a fav anymore when I do it's usually my friends. It's the same thing with comments, only my friends do it.
This has led me to believe that my artwork isn't even worth waste time to fav on.... in other words it sucks.
devildarklover Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2011
I wonder how many people clicked 'Fav' on this and never commented.
GreenwavesInactive Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2011
Dang, I so agree with this...but then I clicked the friggin' fave button and hadn't added my comment yet! :noes: I'm a hypocrite! :iconimdeadplz:

Anywho...I totally agree with this. XD
Cae-lyn Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2011
lol i kind of hate faves =3=

Jopale-Opal Featured By Owner May 14, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't mind the fave and runs, but it would be nice to have a comment or two that are more than one word, I feel bad for seeing ones with many favs and zero comments so I sometimes comment on those with many favs and less comments. I do however have a fear of critiquing something, I wanted to but I don't know how the person can handle it

Although I can not figure the attraction to all these silly stamps, I could not agree more with what you say.
Much like those pesty Llamas. Get a Llama, give a Llama.

Sometimes people don't feel like commenting.
Yukira-Hotoshi Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011
I'm just sick of every single stamp related to Comment before Faving (whether it be for it or against it).
It's an old and tired thing that people really need to put to rest.
I'm honestly neutral. Most of the time I'm not sure what to say, so I don't comment, but I do favorite it. Sometimes if there is a specific thing I like about it or if I have some constructive criticism, then I will leave a comment.

I think I just don't care about all this because I rarely get comments anyways. Most of my deviations get comments from 1 or 2 people. Hell, most of the deviations in my gallery were favorited but not commented on. It annoys me ever so slightly, but I don't specifically ask for comments.

Actually, I feel less inclined to comment OR fave if I'm asked to comment :/
(That may have sounded slightly bitchy, sorry ^^;)
citynetter Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm neutral, also. I sometimes hate these stamps as well. It just ruins the purpose of dA IMO.
I don't ask for comments.
Let the deviants comment on their own.
The IRL way.
flare9299 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2011
I have that problem all the time, feedback is important to any artist who wants to improve and faving without commenting is just annoying I mean I no longer thank people for faving my work now there's just no point anymore.
