Thanks for the +fav gone mad by Pixellover Thanks for the +fav gone mad by Pixellover
I said this a while back in my journal. It just really annoys me to think that the only reason you people come to my page is not to look at my art but say thanks for the +fav! I know you're thankful but...IT'S ANNOYING! There I said it. For all those who find it just as annoying here is the stamp for you.

I did want a fade effect to make it look better but every time I saved it when you play it back it stopped after the first few frames which really annoyed me.So despite the fact it doesn't look as great it'll do. Perhaps now my message will get through. Or perhaps I will just have to flag "thx 4 the :+fav:" messages as SPAM. Don't think I'm mean because of this it just bugs the hell out of me.

Is there anway to use it if so how (im not asking to use it im asking how so i can use something else)
YipeeYoYipeeYay Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013
And as for the ones who still say thank you for the +fav even though the user specifically stated that they didn' t want them to do that makes me wonder if they are just doing it for advertisement... With them refusing to listen and proceed to 'thank' the poor user (when in reality they only do it for views, watches, etc.)... >o<

If any of you that do this are reading my comment you ought to be ashamed of yourselves! That's tacky and not so nice, you guys! XP
YipeeYoYipeeYay Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013
Not only that but you would think that the ones who say thank you so many times would get tired of doing so after a while... You know? XD XD

Yeah, I know the feeling. I clearly state below my ID picture for people not to thank me for the favourite/watch/etc., but they do anyway. I appreciate the sentiment, but it gets tiring really fast. I don't want users to get in trouble by flagging it as spam, so I just hide the comments. My ID picture itself also gets favourited, even though I also state that it wasn't made by me. It would be nice if people to take a moment and look around before they comment. Thanks for making this stamp. :)

So in a way you want MORE than a "Thanks for the :+fav:" Yeah I can understand as it does get boring to read the same comment over and over again.

For me I say more than a "Thank you", I would do my best to look at the gallery and say what I like about it... you know? I like art that makes me smile, think or even if the artist has potential, sometimes when I'm in a mood for ideas and research.

Sometimes I would like to hear what other artists have to say.

I have this problem, I even put the "Don't need to thank for fave" phrase in my devID and still, people shout this shit out!

I wish I could get more ACTUAL feedback...
I Know Right? T_T

Yeah, pretty darn frustrating...
Though it seems placing it on the journal seemed to have worked somehow, I can't place anymore updates without having rewriting the same damn thing. It might annoy people at some point.

I don't mind if people thank me for the fav or when they thank me for joining their groups to be polite, but when they just do it to advertise their gallery, or send me links to other groups they made that I have no particular interest in, I get annoyed.
PastelRainDrop Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
LOL XD I personally think it's just like saying "thank you" if somebody came up to you and gave you a's manners and to show how it's appreciated :p
TokoWH Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This. It wouldn't bug me so much if it wasn't for the fact that most of the people who do that aren't actually trying to be polite. More or less they're doing it to advertise their dA pages and art. I've gotten so many of those 'Thanks for the fav on *insert link to fav'd art here*! Be sure to check out the rest of my gallary!' or them putting in a crap ton of attention grabing icons when they say that.

If you're sincerely doing it to be polite, then you're welcome. I have no problem with that. But if you're doing it to be a pageview whore, then would you kindly f**k off? My dA page is not your advertisement space! /rant
Sabrewulf238 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2012
I'm conflicted with this....on one end I feel it's the polite thing to do.

However all I really ever post is the same exact thing (sometimes I swap out "fav" for "fave") and even though I am really still seems insincere. :/

I always thought it was good etiquette.
(Then again, it's nice to look at a picture or two and comment on it as well)

Hikaroo Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I usually look through the gallery of the person that faves my stuff, and if I like THEIR stuff, then I say thank you and comment about their gallery.
Usually by then I've commented on a few of their things as well.
Go figure. xD
umbbe Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011  Student Digital Artist
I've stopped replying to favs alltogether- usually you don't even know if they fave yhou because they like your art, or because they just want attention. :c I'll just add thanks for fav/watch to a reply to their comment if they bother. :V

"Thanks for the :+fav:!"
iLickTurtles Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2011
I try to tolerate these, but they really get on my nerves sometimes.

I might mind less if people actually took 2 seconds to type a personalized message for me if they really want to show their gratitude. Some people don't even mean "thank you", they just copy and paste their old messages or use :iconfaveplz:. I can tell because some people have posted on my page more than once with the same message - they either didn't see their own post a comment down or they just didn't care.

Generally, I don't say anything. I used to tell them it was "no problem" or the like, but I found that just makes it worse since many reply with an emote or something back.
Pixellover Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes the :hug: of gratitude or the people the who contrusct the whole thank you out of emotes and giant llamas.

YESS. I wish there was some way to remove the freakin' comment box D8 (but of course, they would probably note me instead :icondeathstareplz:)
skittles713 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2010
or worse, comment on one of your pics with a "thanks for the fave". Trust me, I've seen people do that>__>
ComaVector Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2010
Now that is a crime. Like seriously?

Also, many people like myself says "DON'T thank me" in their signature, tag line, or even put it in a custom box just above the comment section. But still those fucking comments are streaming in. It makes me kinda feel like taking back the fav or watch... >_>
skittles713 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2010
THANK YOU for making this stamp XD.

I feel the excat same way. Everytime someone posts a "Thanks for the fav" comment on my page, In my mind I'll be like "omg STOP SPAMMING MY PAGE." But I'm one of those "too nice" people that would rather not say anythingT_T

That's why I don't do those comments on people's pages anymore 'cause I would think what if they feel the same way as I do with these comments. Those sometimes I comment their pages with a thank you while giving them some praise on their awesome work.
YouHaveAShortMemory Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Since I have quite a bit of faves, I too tend to get a lot of those messages. I also tend to have a love/hate relationship with comments like these, to be honest. On one hand, it's nice to have someone comment on your page and at least acknowledge your existence. On the other hand, it can get very, very tiresome if "THX 4 TEH FAV" is the only message you ever get. By then, it feels more like spam than gratitude. I especially hate whenever people post that sort of comment in a deviation or journal of mine rather than on my page (this is nowhere near as common, but I still don't like it at all). Instead of saying what they liked or disliked about a piece, or posting actual comments in my journal, they just use them as a place to say "THX 4 TEH FAV". They're probably trying to avoid spamming my comments section, but it just comes off as hurtful to me.

And yes, I have been thanked for the visit, too. I think I hate those comments the most. :|

Great stamp! :thumbsup:

I like to thank people for favorites in order to try to spur a potential comment out of it. I'm not a huge fan of favorites without comments because you have no idea what they liked about the work. Going to their page, thanking them and asking them is the way I get around that.
Pixellover Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
And exactly how many people ask, "What did you like about my work?" I'll tell you now no one has asked me that in 2 years that I've been here. It's annoying that people don't come to look at my gallery and then say they liked my work. No they came to say thanks for the fave and then probably didn't even glance at my gallery.
reasonandfaith Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2009
It didn't used to bother me until I started signing on and all my messages were "thanks for the fav." People even do it when I have posted on my profile to not post that. Plus I see it as shameless advertising. No one knows what's in my favs unless they check. If they weren't shamelessly advertising themselves and really wanted to be polite, they could just send a message but instead they make sure anyone who comes to my profile sees theirs. Thanks for making this stamp.

Micome Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
this does get annoying after a while, especially when you have over five pages of 'thnx for da fav!'
on your page, and practically nothing else, I mean sure, it's nice to thank someone, but why spam it all over your page? It also sucks when you get your hopes up over some one doing it, whether it be a fav, comment, or watch, you getting your hopes up when you see you have a message, but end up feeling disappointed when it's another freaking thanks comment. This stamp is very true, nice job (sorry for the mini-rant there...)

I agree. :salute:

Why did Deviantart new meesage accont had to include this??? :crash:

This just gives me more fasle hopes.

plaguefacez Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2009  Student Digital Artist

I used to do this when I was new. I finally realized a couple months ago how freaking ANNOYING it is :[
I get at least 15 THX FR THE PLUS FAV/WATCH/VISIT/COMMENT every week x.x Geez!
Another annoying thing is the people that say 'you're welcome'and the poster replies ':D' and the other replys ':D' and it never freaking ends.

Why don't I have a subby.
plarie Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2009
Hmm, really? :O_o:

I always do that. It always makes me feel like I'm being rude for not thanking anyone for faving or visiting or commenting or something. Being polite is probably the only thing I'm good at.

I do comment on galleries and fave/comment back, but honestly, only when I feel like it and/or when something in my gallery that's NOT fanart gets commented/faved. It's not a matter of whether their gallery is good or not, it's just a matter of laziness on my part. I guess you just got victimized by people who never feel like it.

...I ranted. ^^; Yes, I'm bored.

"Thanks for the fav" "Thanks for the visit" and "Thanks for the comment" (< yes, I've seen one of those, never got one myself - not as I remember - but yes.)
It's annoying. I always hide the comment when I get one. I don't want to use my time on answering them, that's why I simply hide the comment. And I don't think it looks good on the front page.
I find it sad when a front page is Bombed with "Thx!" and only one or two comment to the actually person, or a comment to the actually ART - it's funny, deviantART is an ART site, but most people doesn't seem to notice that.

I'm happy you're happy for my fav, but keep it off the spam point please! I think the same goes for answering EVERY comments you get. I can't see why you NEED to write "Thank you" to every person who comment. It's not that I don't want an answer to my comments, but a simply "ty" make me feel.. I dunno. Empty? If you don't have anything to say, don't say it.
But of course, it's not as bad as the "thanks for the fav".

I don't (OF COURSE) do this myself. But I show my thanks to people for fav'ing with this:
In the ARTIST'S COMMENTS, on the deviation. I think the "thanks for the fav" belongs there.

Anyway, a great stamp I've been looking for in some time now. Finally found it. So thank you for that XD I'm definitely going to use it.
