I check and respond to all. I think it's extremely rude when I send a note and they dont reply!! This usually happens with 70% of the people I send notes to, even if they are a very good friend.

MONKEH :rofl:

Well, I read all my messages and comments, check some deviations, and generally skim journals. Some people have interesting ones so I read those about every time, and some not, it just depends.

Well, Im watching lots of artists... Fortunatelly they dont send deviations everyday...
When im in a rush I just read my personal notes, comments and replys... But in the weekend I try to set to the point and I check all deviations (even scraps), comment on some (the ones who shock me or touch me in some way) and journals

I get so few +favs that I just have to thank whenever I get one! ^^;

I also try to respond to comments by commenting on the person's gallery (I only answer comments on my drawings when they ask something or when they make constructive criticism - which is quite rare, these days).

I really try to check and comment on all deviatons but its so hard to keep up wth them, but I do always look at all of them. I don't really read all the journals, there are SO many.

hmm I initially tried to check all of them.. and would still try but I don't have the time now... and need to skim over more and more now days... ^^;
I've even got to the point where I sometimes just have to clear everything older than a certain amount of time otherwise I'd never catch up... ^^;

sigh... the difference between what I'd like to do and the pragmatic reality... or what I need to do...

looks up ~sakuragaoka watchs 500 people :faint: :omfg: :worship: I only do about a 6th of that... and I cant keep up... ^^;

"i read all my messages except journal entries - there are too many of those and they are often unimportant"

That's the one I picked, but it's not exactly true. I read ALL comments, thank everyone for favs and watches, comment on every single deviation (I watch 500 people so it's sorta hard ^^') and I normally read some of the journal entries =D

I read all comments and look through all deviations (though sadly I tned not to comment), but after all that, I really only have time to look through choice journals. >.<

: D

cause i don't get 50+comments per deviation, so it's easy to reply to the comments. =p

I look at all deviations, read all comments, and I used to look at all journals, but now I skim over them. I know a few people that I need to ignore journals from...
