Let's make Weasyl even better! by magnus

I'd like to issue a challenge to all of you! One thing I hear people groaning about still is how quiet Weasyl is,
Well, we can change that!

My challenge to you is next time you see a piece of artwork on here you like, say something! Leave a comment as well as a favorite. Even if it's something simple, the creator will appreciate reading it, and others will hopefully be inclined to follow your lead!

If we want this community to grow, we need to be a part of it! Let's make Weasyl something to be even more desired :)

Let's make Weasyl even better!

    Yeah!

    (it felt counterproductive to actually not comment on this journal)

  • Link

    i agree o3o/
    but i am also very slow when going through art |D

    • Link

      Same, but it's better than never :>

  • Link

    Definitely agreed! I think there are enough of us here to cultivate a really wonderful community, we just all have to be willing to contribute!

    • Link

      Here here!

    • Link

      If only I could fav a comment. xD
      But here here! uwu

  • Link

    I'm on it! ^ovo^

  • Link

    I kinda find it odd. I have never been a person who comments much on anything, but here on Weasyl I find myself commenting a lot??? Like, I don't know what it is about this community that makes me feel safe enough to comment (I have anxiety issues) but I'm glad it's there!

    • Link

      Same here! I think it's just the overall community is much more accepting, so it's easier to get along with everyone. :3

    • Link

      I comment frequently too, and I'm glad you don't get as much anxiety when sharing your thoughts here!

  • Link

    I admit, I'm usually one of those people who's pretty quiet as far as commenting goes. Time to remedy that!

  • Link

    I already do this!!!!

    • Link

      Keep on keepin' on!

      • Link

        ahahhahahhaha. But, yeah, seriously wish that was the more common practice myself too. ;D

  • Link

    Sir, yes sir!

    • Link

      /salute !

  • Link

    Very well said!

  • Link

    I do need to post more here ;w;

    • Link

      I'm sure many people would love that!

  • Link

    I do try. :( I treat this as my main site now.

    • Link

      Likewise, and as more people make this their 'go to' site, the sense of community will just keep growing :)

  • Link

    I try to do it as much as I can. I like the community here and the interaction we get when it picks up!

    • Link

      Definitely! I'm going to be like you and continue to comment as much as I can on things I dig!

  • Link

    Faved this journal, and commented on a pic already. ^^

    • Link

      Right on~!

  • Link

    You won't ferret a response from me. I'll find a way to weasel out of your proposition.

    • Link

      Oh ho ho, mustelid you make such pun?

      • Link

        Now you're just badgering them. You otter know better than that!
        (Sorry I can't resist puns)

        • Link

          I just can't help mouself! (I can't resist them either_

          • Link

            I mink you need to marten up!

      • Link

        It's a mask ;w; I am a cat!

  • Link

    I try to leave a kind word. Maybe even a vaguely intelligent one.

    • Link

      I'm sure any comment is appreciated :D

      • Link

        I like receiving them and it is a pleasure to give them!

  • Link

    I'm the comment dog, and I need a comment cat to chase

  • Link

    ahhhh I need to be more active yesss

    I'm bad at finding words for things, admitted. ...I also need to actually POST more stuff. Hrm.

    • Link

      Sometimes I don't know what to say either, but sometimes even just saying you like something is pretty great for a creator to read!

      • Link

        Aye, and I should certainly try to do more of that.

  • Link

    Ahh, this is the community spirit that I love to be a part of. <3

  • Link

    Butts

    • Link

      Important commentary ^

      • Link

        Definitely. B)
        Haha! I am excited to see this community grow though, the site itself is great for artists and functionality but at present FA is still where a lot of the conversation goes on. I hope it does improve for here too, it would bring more people I think.

    • Link

      Booties are great!

      • Link

        Awwwwwwhhhhh yeeeeeeeaaahhhhhhh.

        • Link

          Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee'll yeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • Link

    I am all too guilty of not leaving comments! I really wanna help weasyl, so this sounds like a win-win-win to me!

    • Link

      Right on, this is the attitude we gotta keep going!

  • Link

    Already on it!

    • Link

      Yay! Also I like your user icon!

  • Link

    This place does need to be a hell of a lot better than Furaffinity.

    • Link

      I think it can be (and in a lot of ways is already) a much better place to hang out

      • Link

        Well, if more people can at least speak up about my art, even if most of it is commission work with fetish mixed in... I'd honestly be a lot happier here.

  • Link

    Sounds like a great idea! Hopefully there's gonna be enough people to talk with too!

    • Link

      Just keep inviting the conversation with other folks here :)

      • Link

        Yah, talkin with peps is real nice! It's a nice, fun, n safe way to get to know everyone!

  • Link

    i've been trying to do that around here, but sometimes i don't know what to say.

    i guess i should make more of the effort now, haha. :'D

  • Link

    AAAAAAAAAALOUDAAAAAAAAAAAaa

  • Link

    I'llll tryyyyyy, it's hard since I never know what to say!

  • Link

    You gotta point!

  • Link

    That is a good idea!

  • Link

    I always do this. :3

  • Link

    I always do this too! Also because I feel that its more appreciated here! I love Weasyl!

  • Link

    I try to do it regularly but half the people never reply, let alone comment back so it gets frustrating and then I stop for a while until I genuinely feel like saying something again.

    • Link

      Even if someone replies, I know at least speaking for myself, I read every comment. So don't let it discourage you!

      • Link

        Yeah, I can understand not replying to short comments or something like that but it's sort of disappointing when you write several sentences and people don't bother to type even a word back. I don't get discouraged for a long time, just for a bit.

  • Link

    Doing my part! Also been welcoming newbies in the forums too.
    Have plans to take the campaign further too, which MAY result in an FA ban... we'll see! :3

  • Link

    I tend to comment more on journals or profiles. It takes time for me to comment on art since I really want to leave a lasting message other than "That's nice". Being super busy lately doesn't help either but I do try. Quality over quantity rules for me when commenting on art.

  • Link

    True that

  • Link

    I try. But the thumbnails are awful here and sometimes this site is also much slower than FA.

  • Link

    Leggo!

  • Link

    Yeah, it's one of the things I sort of groan about, too, because I think it's partially this that contributes to why some people don't seem to like Weasyl. (Because it's not as abig a community nor as vocal as FA, I guess???)

    But I do comment on works I like, personally. uwu
    Although, I am guilty of fav-and-running. ;w;

  • Link

    If weasyl is too quiet, BUY A HEARING AID

  • Link

    That's definitely an issue I've encountered. I've had a couple actual comment strings, but I start worrying I'm being too mouthy...For about a minute. THEN I KEEP TYPING.

  • Link

    I tend to...and then the lack of activity just ensues XD;;
    It's mainly just that everyone i follow/watch is also on other sites. Hardly anyone i watch is weasyl exclusive (and i just find that it's still rather dead at times).

  • Link

    Honestly I rarely fav and run on here or DA. Sometimes if I really am totally lost on what to say I might do that but otherwise nah. My issue is procrastinating on checking my messages everywhere and ending up only viewing a 10th of them x-x need to stop doing that!

  • Link

    AMEN. <3

  • Link

    I'm going to scream until everyone comes here

  • Link

    This is simple let alone common courtesy. Lol.
