If anyone ever views this stamp... I'll just put my argument down here...
IT IS PERFECTLY FINE TO FAV WITHOUT COMMENTING.
Why would it not be? So you enjoy getting comments. Okay. Everyone does. And everyone likes getting favourites on their deviations. Okay. A lot of people do. So you insist on both or none at all. You're forgetting this is an internet site where people can do what they want.
This scenario happens to me a lot: I'm browsing through DA and I see a pic I like. Maybe it's a cool digital art dragon, or some fanart, or a photo of a cute cat. I will most likely add it to my faves. I may or may not comment.
Why? Because I don't have anything to say. Because there are plenty comments saying what I would say. Because what I would say is "It looks cool" or "I like it" or "Nice colors" and I'd rather not waste my time.
And it might come up that I'm not picky on what I add to my faves, that they don't really matter like they do for other people.
THAT IS SO TRUE.
I am careful with what I add to my favourites, but I add what I like. If I like the pic, 99% of the time it'll go to my faves. I like to go through them when I'm bored and enjoy all of the art I've found in the past.
And no, not every one of those pics has a comment from me. I just don't have anything to say sometimes.
And maybe you're one of those people I've favourited something, and I didn't have any crit or comments to add. Maybe you will post a comment on my devPage telling me to go comment. My answer is no. You're acting like comments are life or death, like those people desperate for pageviews.
You say that you won't thank me for faving if they don't comment? Okay, sure. Don't thank me. I don't fav pictures for your benefit, I do it for mine, and I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who agree.
If (and only if) I'm in a generous mood and I see a pic I like that was "COMMENT BEFORE FAVING" or something similar in the description, I might add a "cool" or "nice" or something like that and fav it. Because you wanted a comment, right? And Allah forbid you are one of those people who insist on you pointing out everything you like and giving a heart-felt critique, because it just won't be your day, and it probably never will be if you're that nitpicky.
Okay, the end of my nice "little" rant. Hope you enjoyed it.
I love arguing so please post any challenging viewpoints.
Edit: You can favourite this without commenting. Or comment if you want. That's the whole point, do what you want.
Edit 2: Lol thanks for all the views... I can't beleive it's at over a thousand, that's so sick. xD Looking back I think I did a real good job proving my point! Kudos for me, lol. Thanks again for all the faves, comments, and views on this!
