Because I need something to entertain me at work and I love learning about perceptions of fandom etiquette. :D
- Poll is about commenting habits for fanworks in any given fandom
- Poll is refers to the LJ-comment system for posted fanworks
- No answer is wrong.
- Comments are extremely welcome
- This post is public
When you get feedback/praise comments for your fanwork, do you reply (ie to thank them, etc) :
Always; and as soon as possible
Always; but errrr, it might take a while, heh
Sometimes; depending on how busy I become
It depends; I only respond to feedback that asks questions, says something pertinent, etc
Hardly; but maybe I overall thank commenters in a separate post.
Never; I don't see the point, the commentors know I'm grateful for their feedback
Other; I'll explain in comments (will YOU respond to me? bwahaaaaa XD)
When the fanwork creator responds to a feedback comment you leave, are you:
Pleased; it shows the fanwork creator acknowledges my enjoyment and the time I took to leave feedback
Neutral; the fanwork creator doesn't need to say 'thank you!' but it's nice and polite of them
Bothersome; a 'thanks!' comment is unnecessary and clutters my inbox
Something else; I'll comment
If you get feedback/comments on a fanwork you did ages ago, are you:
Happy; even though it's old, I love feedback and I reply tothank them!
Happy; even though it's old, I love feedback but I don't worry about replying to their comment if I don't have time.
Neutral; it's nice to get the feedback, and I'm not an ingrate, but it's an old fanwork, so meh
Bothered; I have new stuff from that fandom, dangit! Old stuff is old!
Gah, your options are constraining, I WANT TO BE FREE
When you enjoy someone's fanwork that was posted ages ago (ie, it's old), do you:
Still leave feedback anyway, treating it as any other fanwork I enjoy
Leave feedback only if I reallyreally enjoyed it; the creator has clearly moved on to producing other fanworks.
Leave feedback only if I know the person/they're a friend.
Don't bother leaving feedback, since old fanwork is old; might annoy the creator
None of this, lemme tell you in comments
