I reply to the comments I get because I barely get any, but I skim over my watches and journals and such,

I reply to all of my comments; I don't get them often. On the other hand, I tend to slack off when it comes to favorites, since so many people favorite most of the art they see it gets hard to keep up. I'll try to respond, but if there are just too many I usually just delete them. Don't get me wrong, I love to get favorites and cherish them all, but I don't have time to thank everybody. (I uncheck the journal box when I watch someone for the same reason everyone else does ^^;)

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.

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. >.<

i voted: yes, every single one; i also respond to a lot of the messages (i thank people for favs, comment on all deviations, etc etc)

: 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...

As a subscriber I see the thumbs in my message center so I check only the deviations that interest me. I read all journals though (except for the artist lists etc.), as well as all the comments and such. But I only reply to comments if there is something to be responded. ("Nice." would be a comment I don't take my time to respond.) Still I visit every unknown commenter's gallery and leave a thank you note on their main page - and maybe counter-comment if his/her comment on my gallery was "good". I mean critique mostly.

I think it's a fair game. o.o

Every single deviation is commented, even those I don't like, and I say what I like and what I don't. Every message replied, every fav thanked. :rose:

I usually respond to faves, though I tend to skip that when they've either added 10 more to their faves the same day- or favourited most of my gallery and THEN 10 more from other folks, or if they don't comment and only fave (pet peeve ;P ). I like to know why they think my stuff deserves a favourite.

I also check all of the journals. The only things I completely ignore are the 'hot topics' or whatever they're called XD

I read all my messages. I dunno, I find it evil not to read them. ^^; If you're not going to read them, why post art at such a community-based site? I don't respond to them all though, only if there's a question I feel needs an answer to or something. I use to respond to a lot with thank yous, etc, but I just don't have the time to anymore. I try to let people know that I do read them and do appreciate every one.

I also always go through my deviations. I mean, people are on my dev watch for a reason. I actually enjoy looking through the deviations more than I do reading my comments. I always look forward to see what new work people have posted. I have a lot of amazing artists on my dev watch and usually comment on them. I find people who don't take the time to comment on others' work to come off as snobbish. =\

As for journals, I don't read them as much. Usually only my friends' are the ones I'm interested in reading because I can relate, them being my friends and all. ^^

I looks at every deviation that my favorites posted. Unfortunately with over 300 dWatches it takes a long time but usually worthwhile to browse them.
I don't get too many comment but usually respond to them a day or two after someone posted.

I try and look at all the deviations in my messages. However, I look at deviations from people I know ... then, those whose stuff I think is absolutly STUNNING! Then ... on from there. Journals ... it really depends. Polls ... depends on the questions. :P
