When did commenting become a requirement?

LycanMuse Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012  Student General Artist
Utter bullshit.

I fave something and my screen forces open the comment box and puts my cursor in it. Not to mention it makes my screen lag and error.

When the fuck did comments become a requirement. Isn't a favorite enough of a compliment? What pussy decided you couldn't fave without commenting?

This pisses me off so much. I can't even explain how much.

If I only have a fave to give, then my comment does not really matter to the artist either. The "don't forget to leave a comment" thing was enough.

to me this is a good and a bad thing, if you cant say anything nice about the work, not like comments like this is good, i like this, but really you shouldnt be faving it in a way, something has to grab your eye, there has to be something you like it about, like "i like the colors" "i love how you did the hair" "this looks so realistic" but of course with a bit more effort then that, it can really make a persons day, but yet again i barely comment and i feel so bad about it most of the time

Hehe, I kinda agree.

If you have something to say and you have the time, you should definitely comment - write a little bit about what you see! What caught your eye, what you like/don't like, what you feel when you see the picture...I think it helps the artist out a lot! I have a special place in my heart for people who comment like that :D

But then again, if people comment just because there's pressure on them to do so (I mean, it isn't a requirement, but C'MON, it opens the damn comment box for you), that's no good...The comments seem to get less and less sincere that way. I feel like comments along the lines of, "Hey, I like yo' picture" could be replaced by a favourite. Also, that little "Don't forget to comment!" message that pops up by the person's icon irritates me like crazy...

It only happens with the new deviations. Not the old ones. Checked and tested. Weird.

Considering 80% of comments fall under "cool", "awesome", "love this", "this is so cool", or "lol true" I often wonder if we really need comments.

I don't comment all the time ether!
I think the interwebz are trying to tell you something. :iconwoooplz:

Tell them to go fuck themselves in the comment and then fave.

I always fave stuff without commenting. Maybe it's a glitch on your account?

LOL. Thanks for the laugh. I fave things without commenting all the time and they never took me to the comment box. Maybe it's a new thing. I'm on the iPad so maybe it's a PC thing. Well, if it is, that's just plain stupid to force someone to comment.
