DO NOT Spam Fav Stamp by anniemae04 DO NOT Spam Fav Stamp by anniemae04
THIS DOES NOT apply to a mass fav of one image at one time. This goes for ONE person FAVing more then 200 images of someone's gallery, at one time, without leaving a single comment.

I mean really do you know how much of a mess it is to clean up in the back lot? When you have over 1000 images it's a real pain to go through all of that.

Some people don't mind it, for me it's a real pisser of way to compliment. If you want to fav 10 things great. If you want to fav 50 things alright. 100 things ok then that's getting crazy. But I have over 1000 images and if you fav EVERY SINGLE image that is NOT a compliment.

Kept this stamp simple for time reasons. I'll comment more later.

This is exactly the kind of stamp I am looking for! While I prefer comments over faves, I won't really complain if someone faves without commenting... but to fave my ENTIRE gallery without even a single comment is just... ARGH! Totally wanna use this!

Oh, and I'm faving. I commented, right? XD

I usually don't comment on deviations that I fav because I don't really have anything worth-while to say. I'd like to be able to add to a conversation or say something that would benefit the artist... and usually, I just can't think of anything good.

I have reorganized my favs so that the collection I put it in says what needs to be said for me. If I do end up favbombing a particular account (which isn't often), I do try to watch them too. (I mean, If I like half their gallery, chances are that I'll like their new stuff too.)

Honestly, I would love to get favbombed. That means that somebody likes my work enough to go through my gallery rather than just faving what's on the front page. It may not be an actual comment but it's still feedback.

Now I know you're probably talking about favbots, but if a bot bombs you, you just don't give that person any attention. They're making your artwork more popular anyway, and that's a good thing, isn't it?

I wouldn't mind haveing that many faves there is a X on the side of a you got a fav along with the fact I look at them and just slightly feel the twitch of Pride when I know I did something right to have someone fav happy on my gallery.

Meh for me, I don't care if I get a shit ton of fav's and no comments. As long as someone likes it thats fine by me. I just go through he list and if its a ton of fav's by the same person, I will post a journal saying thanks to all those who faved and then I delete them all in one fell swoop.

I don't know I am a fav whore, I will fav a ton of stuff, but I will check the comments, more often than not, what I ahve to say someone else has already said, why spam with the exact same comment?

Nghhh. I'm on a comment spree, so regularly I wouldn't comment on this because I'm just browsing.

But to me this doesn't make sense:

If I don't have the time to comment at least once, why would I have the time to go through your gallery and fav+ over 50 times? (20, I can understand, but 50+ is just crazy)

It's never happened to me, but I understand how you must feel. :no:

Wow, I didn't know there were people who favourited 200 of someone's images at one time to neccesitate a stamp like this.

Don't take this the wrong way, but you should be grateful that these artists take the time to look at your work. Sure a comment would be nice and show more appreciation but is it really so much to fret over if somebody doesn't? Surely they do that with other artists as well so you wouldn't be alone. I say the etiquette in this place makes little sense, because there are those who fave/watch and don't comment and those who whine when you thank someone for favouriting.

Ah see but what I find is that these artist who'll fav over half of my gallery end up faving half of someone else's gallery, and then move on to the next one after the other, without any insight as to why the like the pics other then just to fav as many things as possible. While some people love that treatment, some people like MYSELF feel that it is a waste of time and in the end won't bring up the value of my art.

Plus the mess you have to clean up in the backlot is annoying because you can't just delete ALL of your fav messages because you want to thank the people who faved one item and you'd rather get to know who that person is.

I see your point. It's a shame when you don't know why someone likes your art. I suppose however this applies to people like you who wish to know how to improve their art. I'm still surprised that happens, and if they did favourite as many as 100 pieces of your art or even 50 (which itself is astonishing), I know I'd be asking questions xD

I do know how you feel. We wish people would stop for a moment and leave some form of comment, but unfortunately there are people like that who just fave and run. I wouldn't consider it an insult, but it's not as much of a compliment if I don't know why ^^;

I'm afraid to say, I disagree. A fave is a comment. As long as they watch in the end as well I'm fine with it. Infact I often to it myself.

Sorry if I do that. I'm horrible at thinking up comments for people's artwork. I'll try to think up a comment every once in a while.

Well I can't really because this is ment to be a "SERIOUSLY DO NOT WANT" stamp. If I wrote PLZ in it, the effect would be lost. You can make your own, but just make sure you link back to mine saying you were inspired somehow.

Saying please means you're trying to be polite about it. When you're serious about it, you don't need to say please. The effect of not saying please means that you feel strongly about what you're asking people NOT to do.

I believe she means make it in icon form, like doesnotwantplz or rageplz. People who don't have the paid for accounts can't use stamps so they make a thing called a "plz" account. For example-

:iconamgplz:

so if you made, i dunno, nofavebomb1plz and nofavebomb2plz accounts to put next to each other in icon form someone who doesn't have a paid for account can use it.
sorry for the long-ass nonsensical explanation. o_o

Ah yeah, I was thinking about those things but most of those accounts aren't used to Fav Bomb, so DA doesn't look into them as being spam accounts or annoyances.

I'm cool with them myself, such fun.

I'd be more suspicious if they fave them all... and don't watch...!
But I see where you're going; when I look at a gallery I fave their best, regardless of their quality compared to things I've faved in the past... it's like "I've seen you do better - now do it again."

...random users you've never even met posting "Thanks for the fave/watch" on your page, in the hope that browsers will look at their gallery, are FAR more annoying to me though. :| 4 SRS...

hahah, i get favbombed every once in a while but i dont think i'd ever have that many pictures in my gallery, i'm too self-conscious about my artwork and i'm constantly taking down old things or stuff i think is crap.
i know what you mean though. i've had a few people fav every single thing in my gallery before, (and at my old account too especially, where i had more pictures up.) it was pretty annoying to go through the pages of +favs to see my other ones.

Ah see I like to keep old stuff up, my older stuff still has a lot of favs for being crappy and old. I think it just reminds me of what I used to be like and makes my gallery a treat to look at in it's own humble way (I have stuff I drew from kinder garden up here). But this girl was faving the photos, the scraps and all the crap without reading anything about them or commenting.

On FA though I've had this happen twice so far, which isn't as bad because Favs are less active there and the gallery isn't as big. Still want to call people on it so it doesn't happen again.

Heh, I keep culling my account, so the biggest spams I get these days run to maybe 20 faves at most. Unless it's a group spamming, with three or four people all coming in the fave the exact same things.

But wow, 1000 faves. That would be a pain. Who could possibly go back into their faves to enjoy all of that?

And worse is that I save favs so I can look at the people's accounts, and that time it happened I couldn't just "delete all favs" to clean up the mess quickly. So I had to click x on about 800+ pictures, pictures that are so stupid I forgot why I put them up to begin with (means I need to clean up but I don't like deleting stuff though).

Yeah only once has it happened on DA and I think I made myself clear to that girl who did it to stop, but she continued to super fav other people's account.
