One thing i seem to have noticed, is that we have a lot of people who complain they dont get views or comments on SoFurry, and i thought I'd put my two copper denominations in on something that's always bugged me a bit.
There seems to be a number of artists who hardly comment on other people's works. Part of exposing yourself and getting noticed is being a part of the community beyond posting artwork. Post comments on other people's submissions. Join the chat or the forums for a nice discussion once in awhile. Pique people's interest with an interesting journal.
Seriously. I look at some of the people who complain about getting few comments, and a decent chunk of them have like a 1/10 to 1/3 comments given to the number they've received, and im willing to be most of the ones theyve given are responses to comments on their own work. If everyone sits around waiting for others to comment on their work, no one ever says anything.
