it depends
if you phrased your comment like a questionor something like thatit might be frustrating to not receive an answer,I get that
but honestly: sometimes you have like...I don't know how many questions/comments on whatever you submitted and it might turn out to be technically impossible to just answer every single one of them

a reply to an important question once in awhile would be nice, lately I've been trying to improve my sketching and artwork, so I often ask artists on the web about what tools they use or if they have any tips for fellow and growing artists. It isn't common for me to get any replies, although when I do is very helpful. I just have to understand that people have lives outside of their artwork so being back to my comments isn't always the easiest thing. It's just when they skip over me to answer or thank someone else I get upset, but it's not that big of a deal. I guess there's always google :/

I voted the "i understand" thingy, because, well..

I, personally, am quite talkative, have a lot to say and I love to analyze things deeply, especially with someone else who also loves analyzing, so it's natural for me to answer often (I never run out of words). From me, quietness might be a sign of annoyance or boredness, so I easily consider quiet people rude or might even panic: "Oh my God, they must hate me... ;-;"

....BBUUT I have pretty much gotten over that habit, because I have come to understand how different each individual person is, - and that what might be a rude signal from me, might have a completely different meaning to someone else. So nowadays, every time I start to panic about someone being possibly irritated by my well-written, kind and constructive comment, I just replace the panic with this thought: "It's okay, they might be busy or not simply feeling like answering to a stranger..."

Because, well, it's not like I always answer, either. I don't have to be even irritated to not answer... I just might feel mentally busy and feel like answering to a strangers few-words-long comment is not some fundamendal responsibility.

And, it's not a big deal if an internet person won't answer. :D

happens to me, my inside voice says 'im like what did i say? am i terrible person? im never gonna write anything cause no-one wants to talk to you'
then other times when someone popular talks im so stumped for words its hard to reply without sounding like the generic comments
buut so no reply can be buggy to me but then im awful to give them out sometimes too ...
and popular people are very busy so i can understand they cant respond to everyone

Eh, not nearly that invested in any comments. Getting a reply makes me happy, but I never really expect one.

I don't care at all. If people reply to me it's fine. If they don't want to talk with me it's also fine.

Meh~ It depends on the situation and if the other artist really replies to all comments~ Some reply on everything, some choose which comment they believe that needs a reply, some just don't answer on a regurlar basis so then I don't really care that much :iconcraiplz:

I don't really care at all. Especially if there are hundreds of comments and mine is just another one from them.
