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.

170 watchers here... roughly 20 of them are active and only like 5 comment regularly. kinda weird, why'd you watch someone when you're not even gonna comment let alone favorite :'D?
I really appreciate the ones that do comment though, they're awesome :heart:

I totally agree with this. Those that don't comment are the same as though they aren't there.  I value my commenters. The rest no.

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.

I really like this. I have 300+ watchers annnd I think I only have like 10 active ones. My own friends don't even support me that much. Out of my six friends on my list only 2 support me. My watchers make me feel like crap sometimes =3= lol but active ones are dear to me, and we actually start becoming friends too ^^

I am an active watcher, but sometimes, I just don't comment, that's all. And that I agree with you, because that all they do is just watch me and never see me again, that's not an watcher to me.

I admit that I'm not an active watcher sometimes. Maybe I watch too many people. However, most of the people I watch have more than 300+ watchers who I see comment on their work all of the time. ha ha They're not missing me. Since I'm not so active at watching I don't expect others to be either. I DO however visit the pages of the people who have elected to watch me and comment and fav any NEW work they have. I also comment on their journals. How else will your own watchers no you appreciate them?
Also, being unemployed gives me a lot of time to do this, so yeah...XD Still using this stamp, btw! Thanks!

I agree so much with this stamp. I have nearly 200 watchers in my list but they pretty much remain stagnant and sit there. Most of them never favorite and those that do fave just do a fave and run. The only people that really bother to comment are either my closer watchers or my friends, but that's about it. :U

Some of them comment on EVERY piece I submit, and it's great. I of course do the same! ^^

Yeahm I have this problem.
I got over 50 wathcers or so and they don't even bother wasting 3 minutes of their life, posting at least a comment.
What's more frustrating is that a certain picture takes 6-10 hours of work.

would be simply SMASHING if i knew what the other 680 did with my work X) never knwo how many people actually see my work |D
