Doubtful Sincerity by CassidyPeterson Doubtful Sincerity by CassidyPeterson


When you +fav everything in my gallery with a particular keyword, but comment on none of them...

When images I uploaded two minutes apart are five pages apart in your faves...

When you +fav everything I upload over an hour, but aren't watching me and haven't even visited my page...

When you add my art to a collection named for quality, and the quality therein fluctuates wildly...

I'm going to wonder if you even looked at what I did.

I don't mind the odd fav-&-run. I'm guilty of it myself. And no, I usually don't respond to the comments I get. That doesn't mean I can't question the motives of somebody who apparently has the time to do keyword searches on my gallery or sit on the front page for two hours, but at the same time doesn't have the time to visit my actual page or comment on anything.

I'll fave a couple of the artist's work and that's it. One time I logged on to DeviantArt and I had a whole bunch of messages, looked at it and this guy faved almost every single of my fanart and I was like "Damn........"

If I fave a bunch of your work, please know it is because I admire and look up to you...

It does get a bit peculiar sometimes, so I can see why receiving it seems odd, but I assure you, if I fave your work, I LOVE it.

Not a problem :)

And this applies to any other artists who happen to read this, BTW :meow:

Sometimes mass favings are the insidious work of "bots". Which ticks me off, personally. I mean...WHY? Bots don't appreciate art. :confused: Why people make those bot accounts is totally beyond my power to comprehend sometimes. *coughtroll?cough*
I used to have a couple of watchers that faved almost everything I submitted. Mixed feelings about that (they were not bots).

They do it to increase their own account stats with minimal effort. With the introduction of deviantArt Points, it's become a common tactic to put up a bot account with a donation pool on their page, so that "wealthy" deviants will thank them for the fave/watch with a couple of Points, that can then be funneled into their real account.

Sounds unscrupulous to ME. :no: If I get faves or points or whatever, I like to feel that I EARNED them. :winner:

Ah, I'm guilty of silent mass faving. I'll find a deviation in a search and love it so much that I want to check out the rest of that artist's gallery folder.

Though faving eveything you've updated all at once like that, does sound a bit eerie.

Just playing devil's advocate here but:

are you seriously complaining about getting favs? there are so many artists who would dearly love to get favs.

as for not visiting your page, deviants who have their settings set to "activities hidden" won't show up as a visitor on your page no matter how many times they visit.

as for keyword fav'g, there are folks out there that are only interested in certain kinds of art and that is what the keyword search is FOR.

anyway .. not trying to cause a drama, just thought I'd speak out as devil's advocate for the folks doing these things that aren't creepy or stalky, just looking for the things they like and maybe you gallery had a lot of what they like and maybe they are on "hidden activities" and aren't showing up ... OH and for the non-watch after mass fav'g ... when I first came to dA, I put a watch on everyone who had more than 5 things that I fav'd ... I wound up with over 700 people I was watching ... and there is NO WAY to stay caught up with actually watching so I had to clean 'em out to make it manageable for me ...

so maybe some of these people are art appreciators rather than artists and just collect things they like to look at ... just saying.

and as well, I've fav'd a lot of things from the group watch this time around, meaning, I fav'd from the Group and didn't visit the artists' pages ... cuz I watch the group for stamps, not for anything else .. *shrugs* so I guess I'm guilty of a lot of things you've put out here.
