STAMP: Collect without Comment by Emotikonz STAMP: Collect without Comment by Emotikonz
Seriously, devianTARTS, stop whining about no one commenting when they fave. If you make commenting a prerequisite, people will either post one-word "COOL", "KAWAII", etc or just not fave it at all. And since faves affect its popularlity and therefore its exposure, that really hurts your audience. (Plus one-word comments are really annoying. I don't know how you guys feel - I personally can easily tolerate the ones I already get, no problem. However, I would NEVER willingly invite any more of them.)

So, listen to my Voice of Reason, and say you would LIKE a comment - and specify what you want in it, like a critique, or telling what they liked, so you get less one-worders - but that one is not required to fave it.

And those of you that want a feature forcing comments - you are idiots. Then ALL you get is non-favers and one-worders. Both of which will piss you off, but with that feature you can't let any SANE people just ignore your demands and fave without leaving you a KAWAII!!!11!1oneonee11!! there.

New sister stamp for those on the other side:

Dude, I totally agree. It's so annoying when people get all up in your face for not saying something when you don't have anything to say.

Thumb codes for all deviations and journals can be found to the right of the comments (looks like this: :thumb12345678:).

Omg Love this stamp<3 really hate the people that say it's "rude" to fav without commenting.. ._.
I personally don't care if people "fave and run," and I don't particularly care for one-word comments (though I'm guilty of it myself at times, but that's usually on photos of kittens, but I digress). I *like* to get comments, don't get me wrong, but I don't get all bent out of shape because I don't get them. I wonder about people sometimes.

"I do not not Fav & Run, I merely collect without comment."
That's... Completely synonymous. That's like saying "I don't kill people, I merely hit them until they stop moving."

Now, I don't support the idea of forcing a comment first before a fave, but it's very annoying when all you get are faves... It hurts our self esteem. Here, this journal will explain: [link]

I don't comment unless I actually have something to say. Most of the time, the art I :+fav: (err....collect without comment...) has left me speechless.....
This is so true.
Most of the time, I don't even click the image. If it dosen't have words, I favorite it from the sample link.
