More watches than favs?

When I posted the first picture, I’ve advertised on my old account about the move, so I wasn’t suprised to see more watches than favs. But as I post more pictures the trend holds, watches are still a bit ahead of favs. Why?

Is it “no great pictures, but there’s some potential” sort of watching? Or are people embarrassed to add such naughty pictures to their favs? :-)

By the way, it’s heartwarming to see so many watches and favs! I believe it’s mostly thanks to InkBunny’s great “popular pictures” section? How did you find my account?

could be that they like your gallery but maybe just not enough to fave anything just yet

I've made the same experience. :) Still months later, I get tons of watches, and most of them just fav one thing. Some do fav half the gallery, or all of it, but most just one picture and that's that. I wish there were a few more comments but, I can still dream ;).

I like the kind of comments that e621 admins deem creepy. :-D To get them, I often write a bit provocative descriptions. I‘m not too much into comments like “Great art!” and I know enough artists who aren’t too, because there’s not much to reply to them. A few interesting comments are way better than a flood of “great art”.

Currently I don’t fav anything kinky myself... The problem is, I watch all kind of artists on my primary account, so switching accounts just to fav something isn’t very convenient. And I’m a bit too shy to fav everything I like on my primary account. Separating watches between accounts isn’t appropriate solution too. So, I want to fav, but I don’t know how. X)

I'm not sure as I've faved all your uploads so far. :-)
It could also be because some of your watchers may have watersports etc. blacklisted. Remember, you're still right at the beginning, having 4 uploads. Two of these uploads contain watersports, so some watchers may only see the other two.

I usually do it the other way round - I fav a user's uploads before watching them. That way I know that I will like most of the material they upload.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing all the rest. :)

Hmm... Okay, I’ll try uploading less kinky art. We’ll see if number of favs will grow.

Dobra ideja. Remember, you only have 4 uploads, so you won't see that many favs right away. Eščo äto rannij. :3

Nooo! *more* kinky art!

Personally, I think whether you watch or fav boils down to what you use them for, and what you use the site for.

Favs are, for me, a way to bookmark specific bits of art I feel I will likely want to go back to, or that I want to be associated with my profile by anyone checking me out so they can see my interests, or that I think my own watchers would get a kick out of.

Watches are used on artists that make good stuff that's relevant to my interests, so I can  see new pieces of art they upload, see their journal posts, and have them add to the pool of people with relevant interests that is the "Favorites by Members you Watch" page.

In that light, it makes sense that people would watch more than fav. For my stories, I have five watchers, one comment and no favs, last I checked.

One more use of favs is to show artists your appreciation of their art. If there’re way more views than favs, it looks like people say, “Thumbnail looked interesting, but the picture turned out to be not so good”.

But I’m guilty of not faving kinky art myself. X) I watch all artists on my main account and I’m too shy to fav everything there. Switching accounts to fav or separating watches don’t look like appropriate solutions. In these cases I try to leave comments, but often don’t have enough time.

Given you're called "KinkyRomance", I'd *expect* you to fav the kinky stuff :P

When I first joined, I fav'd all the art I could find by an artist I particularly like (Zorro Re). Turned out most of them belonged to a single person, and I felt bad for spamming him with favs :(

So yeah: I *could* fav every bit of art I like, but that would be really spammy.

Plus, I feel bad giving fewer than three fav stars, so I don't fav stuff unless it's a *favourite* fav.

I don’t find spamming with favs a spam really. I never check who faved what, I care only about number of favs. There’re very few people who like thanking for favs and do other silly stuff. :-)

Artists won’t see how many stars you gave to their art, unless they manually check your favories gallery which is very unlikely. I don’t know what’s the idea behind the stars and would prefer to have an option to disable them altogether, but in their current state they’re pretty harmless. You can safely give one star and not be afraid the artist will be disappointed. Even if he or she checks your favs, one-star fav is still better than no fav at all, you know.

...to be honest, you only have like 4 images (having those combined pictures where the little +2 appears in the lower right corner sadly does not count as two distinguishable images) , two of whom are basically the same too.
if, after 15 or 30 images, you still dont have as many favorites as you would want, you might have to think about  drawing something new.

another thing, not everyone is a meticulous faver. I slap a star on anything i might one day want to see again, others just want to see a picture one time and thats it for them. you, drawing non anthro cubs will obviously end up on the watchlist of dozens of people who just come by to fap of to the new images once. so its also people just using this site in general for various purposes.

then, finally, faving you would mean to spread your art among ones own watchers. people are sometimes competitive, so doing that would go against their wish to be special for everyone else.

as for now... just upload more images, faves will eventually accumulate

Competition? I’ve never thought of that. It’s like not putting links to similar sites on your home page, because it’s “competition”. It’s silly. I’ll prefer adding a site with multiple outgoing links just because I know all other sites are one click away from it. The same with artists. I regularly visit some user’s lists of favorites, because I know I’ll find something interesting.

yeah, i do that too.

thing is, some people dont want others to find someone who'd do commissions cheaper and stuff like that. i mean, if you just get 3 people from finding someone else, you probably make a lot of money, dont you?

You won’t make much money if you rely on people not knowing about other artists. :-D It’s better idea to offer better quality or lower prices or something like that.

e621 is how I found you.

Also, I don't really fave at all with my IB account.
KinkyRomance

Yay, spamming on e621 turned out not to be useless after all. :-D

Haha, nope! I find many artists through places like Fchan and e621.

Well, I suppose people are interested in what you got to show! I favved everything you uploaded that I couldn't find a 'source' for. Since I'm not an artist myself, I can understand (and actually encourage it) when people don't fav my submission, but the original artist's, although I suppose they watch me because they like the kind of stuff I get comissioned c:

That assuming you didn't draw anything of what you uploaded, right? Cuz you say 'anonimous author' in most of them!

Sometimes I color sketches, but apart from that, my gallery contains only other people’s art.

are those commissions for you or do you really just upload someone elses works?
what for?
KinkyRomance

Answers to your questions are in my profile. In short: this is “alternative account” of a few artists.
