Polite Deviant's MC by Alexander-GG Polite Deviant's MC by Alexander-GG
As usual, I try to say "Thank You!" to all of the deviants who have :+fav:-ed my work or who have added me to their "watchlist". But, sometimes, when there are too many :+fav:s (I like :+fav:s, so go and :+fav: some of my wallpapers), it's very hard to answer all of them. Besides, deviantART recognizes/considers such big amount of "Thank You!" messages as spam and temporarily blocks your ability to send the messages. So, what if there will be a possibility to say "Thank You!" right from your message center without visiting all "userpages" one by one? I know, that visit is a sign of politeness as well, but if each such "Thank You!" message will add one "page view" besides the comment to the deviant's "userpage", by my opinion, everything will be within the confines of politeness.

"The most polite deviant in the world" ?

:iconlolwutplz:

You're just one of many spammers. And this "improvement" would make spamming much easier.

>>>Besides, deviantART recognizes/considers such big amount of "Thank You!" messages as spam and temporarily blocks your ability to send the messages.

One of the 3 reasons why I like this site :)

...But if it was my site, system would block spammers from commenting for a month :iconcreepydeliciousplz:

I agree that it's a good idea but it's also a bad idea, It's a good idea because visiting everyone's page and typing just,"Thanks for the Fave." Is time consuming especially if you get thousands of faves a week. But it also sets the precedent for SPAM messages in Auto-Replies. I guess every system has it flaws and strengths. I would like to see this implemented only because i find myself being lazy and don't want to be bothered with doing a whole bunch of thank you's. The costs out weigh the risks.

Some things:

How much worth is a "Thank you." if it is kinda an autoreply? Isn't it just spam?

And, I would hate to have people doing that everytime I fav something.

I like the way you presented it Alex, but I would disagree for this to be a part of dA. I mean like people mentioned before, I don't want a robot to thank me for faving your work. If you can't be bothered to do it yourself, and type it, then I'd rather not be thanked at all.

Some people actually do the thanking part to promote themselves, so everyone could see them everywhere, and this only helps that, and won't make anyone seem polite, at all.

Maybe you are right. But, i idea you can customize the text here as well. So, the main thing this is doing, is save the time, CPU and RAM by not opening all of the pages one by one.

Are your "thanks" comments always original? Or you just paste and copy the same phrase? The same is here. :)

I usually don't thank people for the favourite. I do thank them on my own page, for a comment, or something. Whenever I thank people for the favourite, I actually type what I have to say rather than copy/paste.

I think people should have like a tight connection, and talk to each other personally, not use a feature to do their job. I would hate to have a number of new comments on my profile page, and realise all of them came automatically from the people I just faved the work of.

A very helpful idea, but what would you think when you receive the same "thank you" as 150 people, would you think the thank was really thought knowing that... ? I don't know

But I truly understand the idea, I use to thank all my watchers and people who faved my work but now there's too many, I've give up, say "thank you" for the hundreds times can't make me feel that I trully think it for everybody, because I don't know and won't remember most of them... So I'd prefer stopped.

But I still want to thank everybody of course.
I think that wrote a journal sometimes and say a huge thank you to everybody is better for me.

Changing love and support into a mechanical click might not be the most polite answer :)
The "thanks answer" IS a huge problem :D

Yes, I do agree. "Mechanical answer" is not a good solution. But, at the same time, when I received a lot of :+fav:s, as usual I just paste and copy "Thank you very much for the :+fav:" or something like that to all. It's the same "Mechanical answer" is not? So, I do not know. Do not answer at all? Not so good I think. If this "Mechanical" answer will be a bit customizable everything will be okay I think. :)

Not only to I like the idea. I really like the effort you put into showing, how it could be done in an artistic way. That fits with the theme of DArt.

and to make it even better: we would be able to customize the "thank you" message!

this would be a great time-saver. maybe this suggestion gets in dev7...

When you clicked "Add to Favourites" it says "Thanks!" for a few secs. Maybe a customizable message when the user clicks +fav?

I'm sorry Alex, but I have to tell you I don't like it at all.

This is very unpersonal. dA is about community!

I would rather NOT receive a message back for my faving, than an automated message...

I simply second that. Cause it's exactly what I had commented. And it's better to just "second" something, then to say it all over again, right?

This is a great idea, Alex!
It's already implemented, it works? Or it's in the development stage now? It's only for premium users?

Regardless of all my questions, GREAT IDEA! :D
