Actually, more often than not I tend to get annoyed by people who respond when there's really no reason to, like a simple "cool" " thanks" "your welcome" exchange turns into "what did you have lunch" "im taking my dog for a walk" "whole life story" type of thing and I just feel like really? I have limited (very VERY limited) internet access and I'm listening to this tangent because? XD Tangets and chatiness in forums are one thing, but a simple llama badge isn't something that needs to trigger never ending responses haha
I'd like responses mainly when it actually warranted one, like "hey what time were we meeting" "are you nearly done with your part of the art collab?" etc, I don't expect a response for every little comment saying "that's so cute!" because that'd be selfish of me
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.
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
