Anyone else feel like many Deviants here can be rather snobby?

It's like... you can get the feeling that people here are not interested in communicating with any of their watchers, or anybody else for that matter at all. They're only interested in getting watchers, page views, and comments or whatever. And then if that isn't being fulfilled they are mad. But if it is, they are on radio silence. Anyone else feel this way? I don't know. Maybe it's just me and my specific experience with a couple people. Sad dummy :sad: Sad

I definitely feel where you're coming from. I will say that I'm not one to respond to every single comment I get, as sometimes they're just things along the lines of ''cool art'' and ''nice drawing!''. While I do appreciate the love, such comments leave little room for interaction outside a simple ''thank you'' or any of its variants, and I'm honestly too lazy to reply that same thing over and over. However, when there is an opportunity to strike some small talk, I will usually take it. Of course, there's been times where I'm just not in the mood for talking and then forget to reply, but I do normally like to interact with those who take some time to write down insightful comments on my stuff.

That's all we can ask you for. :) I pick no bones with people for not wanting to repetitively comment on every single "cool art" they get. I only get irritated with the blatant snubs, and those aren't quite as numerous as I frustratedly exaggerated. I was just a bit upset on my friend's behalf, but it really isn't such a big deal honestly. I get where everyone else is coming from too with that.

I dunno about other people. Sometimes, you get enough watchers you just ignore the flood of comments. Other times, you feel like you have authority to be respected when you have high stats or a senior member ranking.
In a way, I feel I have become antisocial by being on a site like this, which is why I have been off for the most part, and have not bothered with even responding to responses from people. So many people that can take issue with you, others are just yapping idiots that have no doubt in their own views, and so on. Nameless digits for all I care now.

That's a fair point. I don't take issue with you for feeling as you do. If you see yourself becoming anti-social on this site then by all means, do what is best for you. It's not an issue I am overwhelmingly emotionally invested in. Mainly slightly irritated on behalf of circumstances I wish I could control to be more in my friend's favor. But alas, such as life.

At least you aren't a liar. I have a lot more respect for people who across the board admit they are not interested in you. Some people don't have the courtesy because they're out here kissing up to the big stars of DA and shunning the smaller ones as if they have the plague. That's not a good look.

Yeah, I guess. Most people here are very nice though. It's just that I have things to do in real life too and many people here are a lot younger than me ^^; I would rather chat with people I already know.

Hm, I'm pretty bad at entertaining my watchers, but I'm not really all that interested in getting watchers/page views/comments. I may appear to be on radio silence due to my inactivity on DA. Does this make me snobbish?

No, I wasn't referring to people like you really. I just had a friend have bad run-ins with several people on here and it kinda peeved me, haha. I didn't expect for this forum to suddenly blow up. XD

Most definitely. It actually pretty sad, because I see how people operate on the Net as a "teaser" for how they actually are in real life. If that is what these people are like on the Net, I can only imagine how ridiculous they are in the real world. They likely either talk to people they deem "worthy" or don't talk to people at all, and that's no way to live, yet a lot of people live like that, especially these days, with the advent of smart-phones.

And that doesn't even get into artists who've managed to make a living out of it; long story short, next to none of them really care about communicating with anybody. They don't care about anybody and only see all this as a business, not a chance to communicate and know other people. And the sad thing with me is I see myself being the same way, the bigger I become with all this. If I get big enough to make money off of it, that is.

Not really my fault it's occasionally hard to discern tone when you aren't speaking to me in person. Not like it's surprising when people on here insult me over a post I make they took the wrong way. My apologies for assuming incorrectly. But no, the shoe is not in my size.

Short answer is that most have given up on meaningful communication.

As for the long answer, I can’t be bothered to write it up :V

That's pretty bad, actually; communication is key to, well, everything. People wind up dead and full-blown wars can start because of little-to-no communication.

Why choose to attempt to talk to people who show they don't want to upon the first meeting?

It's a waste of time to keep doing that unless they'll turn around and do the "I'm sorry" thing like in elementary school. They apologize, but don't show any remorse from their actions. More likely they won't, so stop talking to them and find something else!

That's how the internet is, find something else to do other than talking to brick walls! :dummy: You haven't been on the forums long enough to see how nasty some of the people can get with their troll accounts. :lol:

I don't see the point in being nasty, let alone having a troll account. To waste your own time, fucking with strangers instead of attempting to make something of your time, is absolutely horrible to me.

But some people are so lazy they choose to simply aspire to mediocrity, so I'm not surprised by that sort of thing anymore.

Wasn't really so much that I attempted to talk to the same persona over and over again. But yeah, it is a waste of time. I won't worry as much about it anymore. Clearly, there's more supportive people than non-supportive anyhow. :)

Definitely don't worry about those kind of things. The older you get, the more people get concerned with their own responsibilities in their lives instead of wasting others' time.
