YES. You don't even need to thank for the favourite.  It clearly shows "Thanks!"on the Add to Favourites button when you click on it -_-
Like it or not, the thanks for faves can be considered SPAM, because it's the same thing on many pages. I saw many deviations that said that they won't be thanking for more faves because DA was considering as Spam and some users were banned for this. oh well, Next time someone thank me for the favourite i'll mark it as spam and unfav the deviation.

Personally, I disapprove. What you guys are doing, is honestly...kinda rude. I mean, people are just trying to say "thank you" it's how everyone was raised, how would you feel if people were shouning you just because you said thank you to someone for helping you with a math problem, or a drawing, or even helping you gettin famous!

You should also stop calling people "thnx 4 fav -ers" by saying that, you are offending the people of Deviantart, it's like calling African Americans "blacks" or calling homosexuals "gays" you are insulting people that are just trying to be nice, if you don't like that, well, suck it up and deal with it!

And last of all; LEARN. SOME. DAMN. RESPECT.
you don't have to be a total asshole about it, just take the time time to say: "your welcome" and then get on with your day, ITS NOT SO BAD AND ITS NOT WASTEING YOUR TIME!!!

If you think I'm wrong, then you haven't been raised right.

GOODBYE.

I agree with Shewolf51, honestly.

I don't view it as self promotion, nor spam.

I view it as a simple gesture. People generally aren't linking to the image the person favorited, so I don't see how it's anything but gratitude. I sometimes (when I actually find the time to interact with people here) thank people for fav'ing my stuff because the fact that they favorited my work means two things: 1) They liked it enough to make it a favorite, 2) Favorited work = promotion in itself, because people often find new artists via someone else's Favorites. Just my way of thinking I suppose. :shrug:

However, I could see it crossing the line into spam if say, an artist uploads something each week. You favorite each of those uploads, and they thank you for it every time. That might get annoying. I dunno. XD

Great stamp anywho. :happybounce:

OMG, yes, I am so using this stamp.

And to think, I thought I was the only one who hated the "Thanks for the fave" thing.

They need 300 people to thank. It justs waste space and time. It fucks up my page.

Personally, I don't mind if people leave 'thanks for the fave/watch' since it comes off to me as simple gratitude. Well, as long as they don't link to the picture that I favourited, then that could certainly be considered self promotion in my book.

Then try commenting rather than mass-favouriting, which I do, and I don't get very many of these messages. And I thank for all my favourites and watches :D

When I see a stamp like this, or a journal comment asking me not to post "Thanks for the fave" it just makes me want to do it more!

I think for me it's become more of a form of spite than an actual sincere expression of gratitude.
It really bugs me when people just come along and fave my work but don't leave any sort of comment, and so if I can bug them in return by posting "Thanks for the fave" then I make sure to do so.

Although I hate "thanks4fav"-ers and I hide their comments on my main page, sometimes I feel that I have to do that myself. Especially if some random person faves half of my gallery and then adds me to their watch. I feel like I need to show my gratitude somehow.

Your stamp is funny and I see some of your points about 'thanks for favers'. However, I don't like to sound disagreeable but what else is the artist's front page for?

So you're happy for people to ask questions rather than thanking for favourites/visits/whatever on your front page? Wouldn't that get random if someone you didn't know suddenly did that?

But the most meaningless coments are; Thank you for comment/visit:no:

I always thank someone when they watch me or fav a lot of my stuff at once, not because I want promotion, but because I genuinely want to thank them. It just seemed like the polite thing to do. :shrug:

I am not promoting myself when I thank people for a fav or watch. D: I like to thank them personally for liking some of my work enough to fav it.

If I was promoting myself I'd be like: ":D Hey why not check out some more of my gallery and fav more shit! DESU K! <3333333333"

And I only leave a thank you on people who reply back with a "Your welcome" or something, I don't have anything against those who don't reply back, I just think they don't care. :shrug:

Besides, I don't get much people who thank me for faves anyway, so I wouldn't know how annoying it is. :P
