Some acknowledgment is loads better than none. At least I'd know my comment was read. No other way I'd find out. Just how the internet works. All we really have is typing.

It would be nice if I get at least a smile back but to be perfectly honest who really notices ?

I pretty much always want to respond, when someones commenting on me..... and I do want to have atleast a thank you comment from a regurlar member (though I don't find it completely necessary)...
That said depending on how popular the artist is, I might not even bother to comment as they might not even read it anyways....

As it's "preferred" then I've chosen "At least a detailed response", but I really don't mind - the comment is offered 'for free'.

It's interesting that a simple thank-you and no response necessary are at a practical tie.

I like a detailed response, because when I comment I usually put a lot of thought into it- and I try to say more than "thanks" every time. I like to try and connect with my audience, and I like to feel that my comments are thought provoking I suppose ahah. I am such a chatterbox too so it's nice to have a conversation with strangers. :D

I think we've discussed this before... I understand people are busy but even just a thank you is appreciated.

If I'm going to write more than PURDY I WUV IT! I want more than ............... Of course, like I said to the fave thing, I don't chase people down and flip nuts over it.

At the same time, 98 percent of the time, I don't really pay attention to what comments are replied to, but if I do notice I comment on the same persons work over and over with REAL comments, I stop commenting :shrug: why waste both our time?

I guess it really depends. I prefer a response, but I don't go all crazy and rampant if I don't get one. But response are appreciated...

THAT MEANS RESPOND TO THIS YOU, YOU PERSON YOU!

A response equivalent to that which I'd give to a similar comment on my own work.

Which reminds me, I've a small backlog of stuff to leave comments on.

Expect? No, but hope reigns supreme when the comment is pithy or incisive and I :+fav: the work.

What a good poll question...

I don't expect a reply because time is valuable, but it makes me smile when I get a "thank you", and feel honored to receive any more than that.

I do not expect an answer, nor do I especially need/want one ^^
I do know that people are appreciative of comments in general (=

I don't mind if I do not get a thanks. I try to say thank you for comments, just to be polite.

I voted "no response necessary." As an artist, I try, as much as possible, to thank people who comment, or address particular points they might make. I always enjoy when an artist comments back to me, but I definitely understand that time isn't always there to keep up with it.

I usually don't expect people to even reply, but I like it pretty much if they even reply with a quick thank you. 'Cause that means they acctually read the comment. :3

I think it depends on the comment you make, like if you ask a question, then it would be nice if it is answered, other than that, a thank you would be nice, I do to most, but to be fair, its not always possible due to time restraints.
Generally if I make a comment, I don't expect anything in return, if I do get a thank you/other response, that's a bonus I guess.

I always try to at least say thank you to comments made on my work unless there's a question that needs answering or a critique made... Then I'll try to answer more fully.

I guess I'd like to be treated how I treat others!

Whatever the artist feels like giving me.

I don't comment to get thanked, or to make myself noticed. I comment because I have something to say about the work. If the artist wants to say thanks, or even better come see my work, that's great, but if they just read and delete, that's fine too. I don't do it for me, I do it for them.

I comment because I feel the need to do that, if the artist comments back then it's ok, if not- it's fine too

I guess I don't have a preference. I comment quite a bit on quite a few deviations. The scope of work here on DA is simply mind-blowing and I like to let people know how their work touched me or letting an up and coming artist know how I have seen improvements in thier work. I don't ever expect a return comment. It's not my intent when I do leave a comment. However, I always respond when people comment on my work. Weird, I guess.

I chose 'at least a returned comment on your work' even though that's only partially true. In a perfect world, I would love this, but I honestly don't think this has *ever* happened to me. XD

I said a short thank you (even a wink or a smile). That's what I prefer, but in reality I'm not offended by no response.
