Llama's, Faves etc.

PLEASE DO NOT THANK ME FOR FAVES or LLAMAS, and please also note that I will NO LONGER be thanking YOU!!

Please read on if you would like to understand my rationale!

I have now been a member of DA for some time now, and thoroughly enjoy my participation.

I relish the opportunity to respond personally to people who either Fave an image, or make a comment etc.

Indeed, every Fave or comment I receive I see as a wonderful endorsement of my work, and, like all of us, I really do appreciate them.

Of course the downside of this is the time it takes to physically sit and type out a response to each and every one of (for example today 164) Feedback messages. Sure, a few of these require no response, but the vast majority do. Wherever possible, I do try to use specific Emoticons to reduce the response to a minimum, while conveying an appropriate message but even so, the sheer amount of time it takes me to to do this, is becoming simply overwhelming I'm sorry to say 

I have noticed that other DA Members have solved this by means of a Journal, and it is with much reluctance that I am compelled to do likewise.

However, `what's good for the Goose, is good for the Gander' as the saying goes. 

So I would like to propose the following. If I fave YOU WORK, or give you a LLAMA , please DO NOT feel compelled to thank me! I will do likewise. This will save each of us some time. I will, however, continue to thank those who add me to their DevWatch. Should you choose to thank me, then I thank you here and now for that, but will no longer do so on a one-to-one basis.

Certainly I will continue to respond to comments when and where necessary, but let's save ourselves much valuable time by reducing the perceived obligations to one another by adopting an agreed policy, does that seem fair and reasonable? Will you be offended? (I hope not!).

I hope, of course, that people will take a few minutes to read this, but that if they don't, they won't feel too offended by the lack of response from me!! It's nothing personal, I just honestly don't have the time to offer a `personalised' service for routine interactions here on DA 

So, in summary, I am talking Feedback messages here. If you Fave my images or give me a LLama, I will be delighted, but will not respond. If you add me to your DevWatch, I will thank you. 

Please don't take offence

I am very much a keen amateur as far as photography goes.
I must admit that whilst in DA, I am humbled. There are some fantasmagorical Deviants on this site, who have such creative minds and artistic flare, that my mind boggles.

In terms of my own images, I have only recently started making minor adjustments using Serif Photoplus x4, but it's all very new to me, so it's a learning process really!

Either way, thanks for all the comments, favourable and otherwise, they're all gratefully received. :bow:
