We have over 1,500 wallpapers and screenshots in BB4Windows by now. And yet, only a few members comment on them, which must be really disheartening for the artists/themers.

What's really inexplicable is the fact that the artists themselves, while welcoming comments, don't comment on other artists' works - with a few exceptions. Wish we could show some more team spirit, folks. After all, we feel good when we use wallpapers for our backgrounds, right? Let's show their makers how much we appreciate that - and them  :)

... I thought I better reply :biggrin: 

 

But, yes. Good point. There is some stunning artwork in the wallpaper gallery. I was amazed when I first peeked in there. But this forum is still young. Hopefully, as more people join, there will be more and more replies - on all the boards :)

I never know what to say. :unsure:

 

Alot of them are beyond my capabilities (like Sed's Work) :o . :woot:

as for the rest :ermm: , I almost never critique someone elses work, unless directly asked, as it can create hard feelings on the artists side if you don't absolutely love their work. ( I have had that happen). :sad:

 

As for me Personally, While I do enjoy someone saying they like my stuff (thanks Pete,Sed,Paz) :blush: , I don't let it bother me if I don't get comments. As I have said I make my stuff mostly for myself, and because I have fun doing so. :yes:  I post them because I see no point in just making them and not sharing them with everyone (what am I gonna do let them just sit on my laptop) :no: . Also maybe I can inspire someone else to do some themselves (even If its just more Windows/Mac Walls). ^_^

I mean seriously.... y'all have a ton of Renders here. I don't even know how to begin commenting on the vast majority of those. :D

You are an artist yourself, my friend. Which means, you have an artistic eye and you know what you like and what not. Try to express what you like on somebody's work. I know what you mean about hard feelings - happened to me, too, and I've learned NOT to comment on something I don't like. And no one expects of us to comment on hundreds of submissions at once. Maybe one at a time? Whenever we feel like it and whenever we feel we like something. Like Sed says, sometimes a "Like This" Is enough :)

I don't usually participate in forums all that much. I've always felt the format is intimidating, and I'm not fully sure why that is (though I'm diagnosed with social phobia).

We all do what we can, my friend. None of us is totally sane. Thank goodness :)

To answer the title bluntly: Yes

 

I don't really care about most of the walls, screens, themes and styles.

It's not that they are bad (some are, tho), it's just that I can't connect to them.

When I do, I add a like and usually a comment, otherwise I don't

That's more than what most do :yes:

Can't speak for others, but I'm not the talkative type most of the time, and usually I can't think of much to say if I try.

I will try to at least leave more likes for the cool stuff posted here though.
