Hiya folks. Its senpai Ryce Ball again. There's something I would like to share.. Its a little bit bias and can sound a little bit mean but its also something to think about when you want someone to notice you. You see I get comments from people all the time, and I thank you so so much for that, I do read everyone's comment and try to reply as much as possible but very often I do NOT click on their username to check out their page. Its not that I don't want to... but because if I have to check out every single member's page, I would not have time to make pretty arts for you to admire no more. BUT GUESS WHAT! SURPRISE! I do once in a while check out people's pages and sometimes leave a nice comment or a llama or even watch you if I want to follow your art. YES I DO THAT, I get a feeling people think I don't watch people, that is far from the truth, Ry-Spirit like the rest of you is an art appreciator.
So lets get real ok? In average I check out only 5% of the profiles... I simply don't have time. So I kinda have to be quite picky about which ones I pick... and this is the part when I sound like a butt hole... Here goes.1. Premium Membership:
Yeah that star in front of your username makes a difference. Im sorry... But yes I tend to only click on members with premium membership. There's just a bit more chance of their page being interesting if they put in the effort and money to get a premium membership. It just shows that they are serious about their page and will try to make it as nice looking as possible, I also understand not everyone has the money to keep their page premium.. but do think about getting a premium membership if you can.2. Username:
Unique or funny or smart usernames gets my attention. Example if your name is FluffyHitler, GoldenPikachu, Pink-Llama, BoyWithTheLizardTattoo, HelloTittie. You know what I mean? These are people I would wanna know more of! OK on the flip side what kinda username doesn't make me wanna check out at all... I gota be honest japanese ones kinda don't make me wanna click.. because I can't understand what it means and japanese names are usually hard as hell to remember. Username with spelling mistakes also kinda turns me off. What really makes me don't wanna click on your name is if they put their full name.. HaroldSmith and Peter-Wong *Yawnssss* no disrespect to people who likes their own name.. but I prefer to check out HelloTittie's page you know?3. Icon:
Yup! Sometimes I still see members without an icon and I'm like 'COME ON MAN! WHAT YA DOING!?' An interesting icon lures people to your page. I tend to click on people with funny icons. I am a fan of funny. That or a really nice looking artwork in the icon (Which is kinda hard cos the icon is only 50px big). Or simply just a photo of a hot looking girl.. Call me shallow.. but its true. If I see a cute girl in the icon that isn't a celebrity, my finger would wanna click on it. IM SORRY OK TvT" It just sorta happens.... argh.. but yeah I think thats reality for ya. Oh one more thing, if your icon is not unique and I have seen it before, like if I know you just took it off google image or something, then I most likely won't check out your page. Try to be unique ok? Ry-Spirit cares.4. Comment:
The comment itself is quite important for me, if a person gives a long and detailed comment I would wanna find out more about the person. Again I am a fan of funny so if the comment makes me laugh then there would be a higher chance of me checking out your page.
So there you go, something to think about. And of course not everyone is like me, some people doesn't check out other people's pages at all, some people will check out EVERY profile they see on their page. Some people like japanese username because there's more chance of finding japanese inspired art on their page, there's really a lot of factors to this. But for me personally those would be the 4 points.
Now I mentioned I am a fan of funny. So in the comments below I want you to tell me a joke if you like, if I find it funny I will come check out your page.
