It's sad. + Contest News

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 25, 2012, 5:13 AM

Hello, everybody.

The ladybug-contest ended yesterday, and now Kara-a and me are deciding the winners. All the donators and of course the winners will be contacted soon.

Second thing: Yesterday I uploaded a Christmas-picture for you to download if you like. I thought it would end with an 1:1 ratio of favourites and downloads, but what I saw today destroyed my faith in humanity.

I cannot believe it, 4 times more downloads than favourites? Guys, do you watch me just for downloading my pictures, not to support me?
:grump: :(

Anyways, I wish you a Merry Christmas.

The last week of my 52-weeks-project has begun. :eager: I am so excited! :onfire:

That is a bit disappointing, but at least they liked your work so much they wanted to download it? :) Also remember, some people download pictures just to take a closer look, and some downloaders might not have an account. But otherwise, it is sad you have 600 favs and over 2,000 downloads.

Same thing happened to me on my GIMP curves :O This one [link] has 960 faves and 2,700 downloads. This one [link] has 160 faves and 1,700 downloads. :crying:

I just noticed this in my notifications. ):

I agree, it's very disappointing to see people just downloading them without favouriting. Even if they don't favourite, leaving a comment would be nice. I've got a similar case going with my Photoshop Actions.

That is strange. I would certainly hope everybody watches you for more than to just download your photos!

I also thought that people watch me because they like my pictures.
