naahhh, It's fine , I understand them I mean you'll probably do the same if you get tons of comments following each other one by one. You'll get happy to see and read them but sometime it could be tiring specially when your works/arts are popular y' know?
I typically don't mind. The only time I get bothered is when I leave an especially long/insightful comment, wanting to discuss more about the topic in consideration, and I notice that the artist replies to all other comments but mine - even the completely generic "This is awesome!" comments. But really it's more of me just hoping to strike up a conversation; it's not that I'm "annoyed." If they don't want to, if they don't have anything to add, then it's a-okay.
I don't mind at all when artists don't reply to my comments. what I don't like is when an artist never replies to ANYONE'S comments. time may be an issue, but when you don't reply to any comments it makes it seem like you don't give a crap
it depends..if there's a question in my comment then maybe..but a standard "THIS IS AMAZING O u O" not so much..when the artist gets a billion of those comments it's kinda hard to personally thank everyone. we know people are usually pretty grateful for compliments around here (:
I like it when artists respond to comments, but much of the time if you just leave a comment saying, "This is amazing!" they can't say thank you to everyone. If you ask a question it would be nice to get a response. I understand good artists can be pretty swamped. I am just happy if they do reply, but I don't sweat it when they don't
i don't really comment on a lot, when i do, it's mainly for my benefit, so when i send them a note, i really like it when they respond, so i know they're not snubbing me or whatever, even if they don't answer it for a long while
it doesnt bother me because i would prefer a comment with substance. "nice pic!" is great to hear, but that doesn't tell me much. what is nice about it, exactly? the majority of my votes are comments with questions- those are my favs i prefer my replies to comment have substance in them as well.
Sometimes, it bothers me when people do not reply to comments, as well. it almost feels as though the comment number is an ego boost to popular artists, not the people themselves, if that makes sense? Even generic blanket thank you journal entries are okay every once in a while. That way it feels like the artist is actually reading comments, or cares about their followers, despite not being able to respond to them all.
it just feels good to know that the artists appreciate the little people who take the time to look at their work, and comment on it.
I voted a little. It kind of depends on the artist. For one, if someone isn't really well-known and is maybe getting a handful of comments then I don't see why they can't type in a thanks to show their appreciation. Though I'm not going to yell at them for it since I also believe it's their decision. For someone like you, who probably gets hundreds with each post they do, I can understand if they don't want to reply to every. single. one. and fully understand if my comment goes unreplied. It's all good.
just a tiny bit cause sometimes, when I see questions (for example) that only the artist can answer, but he/she is not replying to one of the comments or the question. But yeah, I understand, there might not be much time. Though I think they should take their time.
If its a specific question or a good-sized post I spent some time thinking about [like critique] then maybe, but other than that, no, not really. I would hope they'd respond to a Note, but I've had plenty that never get back to me (now THAT is annoying).
I'm the opposite =o I get annoyed when people make a fuss over artists not replying to all their comments. I only reply when someone asks a question or says something I wouldn't mind talking more about and I hardly want to have to reply to every comment with "thanks" or anything generic like that, so I don't expect other people to either. Whether they're busy or not.
Depends of the comment I guess. If it's something very specific that really needs an answer, I think they should reply. I understand sometimes it's a matter of time so I won't be breaking stuff if they don't, lol
I find it a bit annoying tbh. I don't mind if I left a crappy comment, or they're busy. But seriously, If I write a lovely flattering comment on their art and they just ignore it it makes me kinda sad >< I don't mind if the replies a simple 'thanks' or just an emote, but if anyone leaves a good comment, its plain rude to ignore it ><
No. I know I sometimes struggle to find time to reply (although I always do eventually) and I don't even get a fraction of the comments that some artists get. Also, comments like 'cool' or other complimentary comments that the only possible reply is 'thank you' or some other variant, when an artist gets hundreds of them, it looks a bit weird to just have a ton of 'thank you' replies.
Notes should maybe be replied to, as long as they're intelligent ones.
it would mostly depend on my comment...also, if they are one of the deviants that have thousands of people watch their artwork on most days, I'd actually very shocked if that artist was to reply my comment. For those that have few watchers, they I would actually expect to respond, but again, depending on the comment, they may not need to
I don't get annoyed. My comments are more of an expression of my appreciation for their work so I don't really expect a reply. But since being replied can feel nice, I make it a point to reply to most (if not all nowadays) of the comments I get to express my gratitude.
If I'm asking a question, I'd like some kind of response even if it takes awhile, never responding is a bit annoying. Though there's the problem of language barrier which is understandable, and popular artists like you get heaps of comments so it's hard to respond. (Like right now there's already 5 pages of comments on this poll )
But if I'm just leaving a comment like "Good job", "I like the way you....." then I don't mind if I don't hear back.
I do't expect anyone to reply to one word/one sentence comments but when you actually ask a question it's annoying when you get no answer -as long as you ask a question like 'What did you use' or 'how long did it take you' and not for a complete explanation of course. Hell, even *sandara answers questions like that>> Also it would be nice to get some sort of reply when you write a crit :/
Actually I think it's rude for people to get annoyed lol. Some people don't have time to answer the tons of comments/questions/whatever they get, or they don't have the energy. Or maybe they didn't log on for a while and they feel weird replying to a days-old or maybe even weeks-old comment. Or maybe they're just really shy, who knows? Haha.
In any case I hardly think it's because an artist is stuck up or rude; and if they are, they usually show it in some ways. And then, why would you bother commenting on their stuff or even asking them questions if you know they're rude anyways?
I honestly don't mind. Some people just don't have the time, or think it's simply pointless to reply to something that has already been said, and even then I don't care. I say what I want and if they read it, good; if they don't, whatever.
If it's a question for the artist, I could see getting annoyed, though I haven't been annoyed in such a way myself. If it's something along the lines of "Oh, I love your art", "This is awesome/cool/beautiful/amazing!", "Thanks for the fave/watch/comment!", etc, it's perfectly fine not to answer, in my opinion.
