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
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
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...
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.
