I :heart: my ACTIVE watchers by StampsByNeekko I :heart: my ACTIVE watchers by StampsByNeekko
All questions and concerns you really want answered/replied to should be directed to my main account, =neekko. I do not check messages often here.

Spurred by those "I :heart: my watchers" stamps I see all over the place. I may be wrong, but I can't see why I should support someone who doesn't do anything. Just adds me to their "friends" list, then disappears off the face of the earth. Not even an "occasional +fav and run". Just... quiet. I tend to treat those who comment once in awhile with more respect than those who just suddenly pop out of nowhere because I'm offering free stuff.

Very true, unfortunately...Only about 10 of my watchers are active. Most are friends and nice people I talk to a lot. I have a feeling the majority of the people who watched me, hoped I'd watch them back, which is very frustrating. >_>

I have a strong suspicion that half of my watchers only watched me hoping for a watchback. Which...I never watchback, soo....I pretty much ignore the inactive watchers. Or I go to their page and randomly type in the comment box "Poke." :D

I agree with this stamp. I have 182 watchers, but most of them never even visit or fave my deviations. I just consider them ghosts, but I`ve been suprised a couple of times.

I have three watchers and one favorites every single piece of work I have, while the other two never favorite or comment. And two out of three of those have no deviations.

oh, yes. This all the way. I would so much rather have a handful of active watchers as opposed to hundreds of unactive ones.

I really enjoy interacting with my watchers and I appreciate having them around. Having watchers who comment and/or favourite the things I post make me feel as though people actually care about what I post, instead of wondering whether people actually see what I'm doing.

Because of that, I try my best to be as active a watcher as I possibly can be. Like most people, I have a life outside of dA, so I understand that I won't always have time for everything. Or, sometimes, I might just not have anything to say! But yes. Even if the artist doesn't reply, I know that they probably appreciate having another active watcher as opposed to one who is simply a +1 on the watcher count.
