Bribery by Moonlight-pendent13 Bribery by Moonlight-pendent13
Ever had this happen? people BRIBING YOU with this shit?

Oh if you give me this many points I'll do this this and THIS for you

I don't want people watching me or favoriting my stuff out of obligation if you like my art favorite it, if not then don't I don't think that kinda stuff should be going on at all it's ridiculous and frankly comments like that piss me off to no end.

ESPECIALLY when they're begging points from groups who are trying to raise points to become a super group

Greedy stupid people

This stamp very well reflects how annoying it is for people to ask for points all the time in the comments. It very nicely states the point, by stating it in only a few sentences. Also, the design is decently original. It is certainly creative, but it could be a better, even though the design is good. The technique is good, producing a visually appealing stamp. This stamp also makes me think, over the point you have about annoying people begging to give points to them. To sum it up, this is very nicely made and certainly shows a point or an opinion that you gave.
What do you think?

Unfortunatley, that's something that happens to often. I was really happy when I saw someone Favorited a lot and posted a note, so it's kinda disappointing when they just say: Hey, I fav'ed you, points plz!

I agree

"Hi there SOZ 4 bothering you my friend REALLY needs a premium membership donate it will only take a second bye"
Really?!
Guess what, if your friend really needs this membership, GO AND FUCKING BUY ONE, THEY'RE NOT THAT EXPENSIVE
plus, I pay for my own points, and I only donate them to request commissions and share them with my friends or who I want to
not just because some stranger begged and spammed on my page for one.

yeah, but if you "really need a premium membership" You'd need about 400 points which is only about 3 quid
but not everyone needs 8000 points anyway xD

This has just got you a free llama :rofl:

I didn't know llamas could be used as bribery, usually I just give llamas to people who fav/watch me (besides the traditional thanking of course) or use the llama giving game to give away free llamas to random people. I just like to give away llamas.

*deep breath* Hope I don't get "crucified" by my opinion.

Yeah, I agree with this stamp in parts. You can't just do things for personal interests. Specially when you enforce this on people.

There's many artists I faved, watched and llam'd and commented on their works because I liked them, because I found out how great those pieces of art were.

However, not all deviants who ask for X points to do something are "stupid greedy @$$holes sons of a *bleeep* possessed by some generic evil spirit".

Like me, they do it because they can't buy points every time and/or to know "unseen" artists and help them to get noticed, like in an "exchange of favors", where both sides get benefited: I know a new artist, and then I promote his/her works in gratitude.
And this is totally optional: if you do, thanks; if don't, thanks either, because I know many other ways to know unknown artists.

The question here is: What's the difference between "bribe" and a "friendly agreement" ?

That's my :twocents:. Feel free to counter-argument my opinion, because I'm here to learn too. I'm not a know-all.(but please no trolling/cursing/dArama please. I just want to have an healthy discussion.)

if artists want to pay people points for favorites or watches that's all fine and dandy, I was more referring to situations where people come on my page and go "HEY THERE GIVE ME SOME POINTS THANKS" I reply "um sorry no" and then they throw a hissy fit, that's the people I'm talking about. Lol though to be honest, old stamp is old and I don't really care that much bout the whole points thing, I just hide comments like that I get :dummy: so no counter argument though, I gotta say I find it hilarious as fuck you're telling the stamp maker not to troll/curse/cause drama

I think you should fave work if you love it and want to view it often (which is why I faved this) and you should watch if you adore what they draw, their style, and their personality.

I totally agree, people can't just bribe you into doing things like that. It's sick, crazy and just selfish.
Fave things you actually like not just because of bribing, it's stupid. And watch someone because you love their work and because you like them as a person as well.
If you can't make friends by being someone that's definitely not you, then don't even bother.

I've never had that, but I hate it when someone'll watch me, and then like a week later they'll come and bitch at me for not watching them back. You should watch people for the art, not as a way of buttering people up and making them watch you back.

Yes, I've had SO many people ask me for points.

"If you don't give me points I'll hack your account! D8< "

lol The donation pools are the worse too. Give this X amount of points and I'll fave X amounts of your stuff, or I'll watch you. It's so insincere. That's why I added the 'I won't fave/watch you in return for points donated' type thing in my donation pool box.
