: 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'm not at the point where I'm bombarded by comments...just deviations and journals.

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

I check all deviations and messages, but not all of the journals. Just a select few, and those that say something like "Help" or "Read This" in the title. :XD:
