I totally agree with this and it's one of my biggest pet peeves. I have stated on my profile rules to not add me if you're going to be active. I'm here to talk to others about my stuff. If they add me I expect participation and conversation. I have been here 8 years and I only have 90 watchers. Of those I'd say 7 are active. Everyone few months I will clean out my watchers. I don't need the ones that don't do anything. It's the same as not having any. So I have never gone over 100. I don't care about looking like I have tons of friends. I'm not here to collect names. I'm here to chat. I have one guy that doesn't watch me, but every time I upload to a certain group he always comments so he's more valuable to me than most of my "watchers"
I have 10 watchers and only 3 seem to really care about my stuff and I can say that they are true friends! There's also 2 others that are ok and the rest are just random people who clicked the watch button just for the hell of it. I don't care about getting a bazillion watchers, I only want watchers who actually care about the stuff I post!
Not a problem. ^^ I just wish all of my watchers were active...I get bored often, so I like to talk with people, and whatnot, when I have nothing of importance to do. xD It's fine, I don't mind, I'm just glad you did reply. :]
so do I, I have people with deactivated accounts on my watch list and people who only watched me because I watched them, its frustrating I just want to have people who appreciate my art activly watch me instead, same I love to chat to people loads, Of course I would have, I hate it when people don't reply to my comments so I like to at least try to reply to all my comments, lots of comments just got buried in my inbox though sometimes and it take me a while to get to them
Yeah, I have a few deactivated accounts...and I hate it when people do "watch-backs". I watch people for their art, not for watch-backs. It's upsetting when that's all that people care about. Of course, I could talk for hours, if I have the time! xD Ha, I know. I understand why some people don't reply, but I just really appreciate it when people take the time to talk and reply to my comments.
