So I was reading someone's journal, and they said they hated it when someone said "Thanks for the ____" in a pm or on their wall.
Of course, this is because people say things like "Thanks for the fave, thanks for the watch" when they make a story or something.. When I read that, it kinda ticked me off.
See, I have the same feeling when awhile ago a artist I liked made a journal talking about how they despised people who faved artwork, but didn't leave a message, basically saying that "You don't really love it, you're just saving porn" or something.. I don't remember, it's been ages.
See the thing is, when I have ten people who like a work, don't expect me to write ten seperate paragraphs expressing the joy I feel in you faving my stories. I will admit, sometimes I wish people would say something when they fave something of mine, but hey, they faved it, which means they like it! They don't have to TELL me they liked it, I have proof, BECAUSE THEY FAVED IT!
Even from the standpoint the artist made, I kinda hate it, because it feels more to me like the artist is just trying to stroke their own ego. "Oh yes, you liked my character because of this this this and this." Hey, if they faved it, they liked it, you don't need to really know all that much else unless you specifically ask for constructive criticism in my opinion.
Anyways, I feel similar here. I can either say "Thank you for the blah", or I could pretend I'm to busy for you (Not talking about people like wolfblade Or Sammy, who probably get way to many people to properly thank them all) If I say thank you, I mean thank you, why are you getting angry that I said thank you?
"Hey, thank you for the fave."
"What? What did you just say to me!? How DARE you show appreciation for me liking your art!"
For instance, with my new story on Sofurry, I get on, and I get two or so more likes. now that I'm reaching twenty likes, should I really ake up twenty different ways to say thank you for liking my story, and not just them, but anyone else who likes my stuff?
No. Instead, just be grateful I cared enough to message you, expressing my happiness.
