Go to their page and thank them for it.  It's the polite thing to do!  :-)

I go to their page, I have a message for first-time people who've favorited and people who watch me/favorite me more than once. It's generally the same everytime, but I like typing them out instead of copy-and-pasting. I don't get many favorites, so sometimes I think it's a crime to get so excited for them. ^///^ But, maybe it's just me, but if you go to other people's pages, they sometimes realize the internet has people connected to it, and they feel intrigued by your personality and are more likely to keep in touch. If not by "watching" you, then by passing by your page every so often. ^-^

I thank them, for faves or comments, or just about anything that they give me, since I don't get that much anyway. Though, I do read first, If they have one of those "Don't thank me" stamp :)

:B interesting subject. Sometimes I thank people for watches, or if they added several pieces to their favorites, but not trying to sound like a douche or anything, but i normally get about 30-50 faves per piece i post its kind a pain in the ass to go thank 30 different people every time. >: i dont know, i could be better about it.. >8 that makes me sound like a prick lol.

Lucky for you if you look at my current poll, it seems most people don't mind if you don't say thanks anyway :D

Haha when i'm that popular i might have to stop @_@ but i feel bad. I only get like 10-20 on most posts on the first day, on finished pictures i get more but I still try to thank back for every single one, it takes up a lot of time hahahahah.. but not like i have anything else to do :stare:

lol i feel you on that though! sometimes i get around to doing it but it takes up so much time.. plus youre right, most people dont even care. 95% of the time people just say "np" or some form of it and thats it.. I'm very appreciative of people faving my art and i think people know that. < u>

Unless they specify they don't want a thankyou, I'll go to their page and glitz it up with my thanks! I don't just say thank you, I say:

That way I don't sound like a robot. Plus it gives them a page view, and I always look at their gallery back. :)
Comments are always loved, but a favorite is compliment enough. :aww:

What little favs I get I thank. If they're friends and have commented as well I just thank them for their feedback (more often than not). If they're friends and fav and run I thank them on their page and make some stupid comment to go along with it in hopes of making them smile.

Though there was one group I used to submit to and the same person kept faving my work. Like, all of it that went into that group. :l I had no clue what to do, so after thanking them the first time I just sent them a llama and left it at that. They never commented, so yeah >>; IDK, it just felt super weird and was all 'Have you even looked at my other work or do you just fav everything in this group?! D:' though that would be rude to actually tell them so...yeahhhh^^;

Oh yea I have a watcher that does that.. like favs everything i submit even if it's scraps or a doodle or unrelated to art :/ makes favs from them seem worthless :\ but i can't say anything to their face XD

Well... I rarely thank people for faves nowadays. If I go to someone's page and think of something to say to add to the "thanks for the fav" part, I'll comment, but otherwise I don't want to sound like a robot. Dx As ~KonekoKitty1 mentioned as well, some people seem to even get mad if you thank them, so I don't know how annoying most people find it.. I don't mind being thanked for faves, but it's also like a "you don't have to mention it" kinda deal. It's not like I get offended if I don't get thanked x']
Also, this is me being stupid, but sometimes I think if I thank someone for the watch they'll see the comment and be like, "Nevermind, this person's art sucks" *UNWATCH!* rofl. Cause my art is so darn inconsistent right now.

LOL omg, yea if they saw my art through a group and saw my latest works they'd b elike uhhh... wtf did this person do to draw that other thing.. >_>

I might do another poll to ask what people think about fav thanking, or what they expect when they do fav someone, that might be interesting.

When I was newer, i would go to everyone who thanked me, read their journals and really try to write something in their profile + thanks, but now if did that it might take me like 3 hours to get throughthem T_T

Ahahah. :') Yeah, sometimes it honestly seems like pure luck if a piece turns out half-decent.. and so you get everyone's hopes up but the next piece is like: *MEGA-FAAIILL* and burns their eyes out. Yeah, that could make an interesting poll. (:

Ikr :P At one point I was trying to go through the gallery, leave a thanks, comment on their journal if it was interesting, and give a llama to everyone who faved/watched/commented whatever, but that can take awhile.. It also gets confusing how there are two stacks for favs (one for normal favs and one for collections).. so whatever. /lazy. I do it occasionally, though.

I just removed the stacks completely so it's categorized by people over time in stead >_<, the stacks made it really easy for me to just delete huge chunks without commenting LOL

Hahaahha, yes you can! They used to be unstacked many years ago i think and then stacks were added so they kept the old feature too, but not by default.

Nope, to many people complain when people kindly take their time to thank them, about how annoying it is, that I just don't bother. I know not everyone complains, but I am pretty sure most people ignore "thanks for the fave!" comments anyway.
Reply
:iconshattered-earth:
Shattered-Earth Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2011   Digital Artist
Oh christ, who complains to you? That's super rude. Even if they didn't like thanks they could have a sign that says "Don't thank for the fav" and hide people if they do. It's not like yelling at them is going to make you look better, and people only thank once so once they do it once.. they're not coming back..

Most people do ignore. I actually try to go to every single page to thank people that fav me, it takes a very long time but i get about maybe 25-45% of the people say thank you or something else nice, or they will actually come back to fav more things/actually look at my gallery which is worth it to me @o@

I don't thank per-se; I llama. It's simple and generally appreciated, and some people llama back, so I now has a gigantic llama herd.

Yea me too.. i feel kind of awkward if i comment again on a fav the next day or something. I think i should do the llama thing so i can remember who i commented on in the past and who i haven't if i can't remember their name 100% @_@

yah, luckily (or not) for me, my audience is small enough for that to be a non issue, though i've seen some people do journal entries dedicated to basically EVERYONE who'd faved rather that just thanking them one by one
