Okay, I'm putting my foot down. NO MORE of these.There have been 2 things that have been pestering me alot lately. Well actually, they've been bothering me ever since I started writing for DeviantART. It's just that I've finally lost my thin tolerance for them. And so I am writing this Journal as a way of putting my foot down so that i don't have to deal with this anymore.
#1: Stop it with the random comments!
And I don't just mean comments like those from SilverWolfJudge and thescpcontainment that I don't respond to because they are spam/annoying comments as well as attempts by them to start a roleplay "fight". (Which, by the way, I DON'T roleplay.) But I get a lot of comments and notes that just say "How are you?" or "How's it going?". I often don't reply to these because they spiral into the most pointless conversations about nothing that I've ever been a part of. (Which says alot given some of my fights with AraghenXD and general-sci) Look, if you don't have anything to talk about with me, then don't talk
Even though I consider myself immensely impatient, there are thing I can put up with....to an extent. Eventually, that patience will run dry and for some, it has. #1)
Now I love comments. I've mentioned that before. The comments I don't like? The ones that are blatant attempts to start an immensely confusing RP or simple conversations that turn into strange RPs. I hate to name names but the top two culprits of this are
As told by a friend of mine, Judge can't seem to find a balance between a normal conversation and RP. Otherwise, he leaves utterly confusing comments everywhere.
Case in point: comments.deviantart.com/1/5021…comments.deviantart.com/1/5088…comments.deviantart.com/1/4711…
And he wonders why I don't answer him much.
Now Xenomaster's a good friend of mine. Talking to him can though lead to me slamming my face on my desk. We could be talking about symbiotes and out of nowhere, he starts RP or begins talking about Disney.
It gets annoying after a while. #2)
This has happened to me, JawsFan and even general-sci
. People who are fans of our writing works and love to pitch story ideas for them. I find it flattering (but that's my ego talking). However, it gets annoying. You see, with both Venom Evo and Fly-Girl, I've already planned on what's gonna happen EONS from now. The problem is that I can't undo those chain of events just to incorporate something that'll probably never get used. There's a difference though. Suggestions are ok to an extent. An entire storyline?
And even more annoying case? Last year, a user constantly suggested that I do a "Feral Fly-Girl" storyline. At first, it sounded good....but then I heard more. Turns out, his plan was to introduce his OC and have her save the day.
This is the same user who continuously tried asking his way into both Gene Breakers
and even Grafters
. If this was an OC who had her own universe, her own cast of characters, her own series, I'd think about it. If this is an OC who was designed to ride the coattails of others, ain't happening.
To all of those mentioned/alluded to in this journal, I'm not trying to be mean. All I ask is that you stop. Ok?
