I support +fav over collecting by That-Stupid-Dingo I support +fav over collecting by That-Stupid-Dingo
My First DA Stamp, I've always wanted to make one, but have never had any reason to do so until now.

Anyway, I don't know about you, but I find the "collect" feature rather stupid, I mean do you really need to make it more easier for people to add stuff to their favorites than pushing a button?

To me if someone +fav's my work it generally means a pat on the back and it means a lot to me. But can the same really be said if someone decides to "collect" one or two (or more) of your drawings.

To "Collect" art, you don't even need to click on the thumbnail/link to view it, you can just drag and drop the thumbnail and dump it into your collection. People in general deserve a lot more respect than that... at least if someone +favs your work, they actually took the time to look at it.

Feel free to use this stamp in your journals or wherever.

Note: Adding Thumbnails to journals is a subscriber only feature

I find it kind of degrading...

What's the difference? Technically, collecting something is still favoriting it. You just have a specific place for it. Like, I have a collection for everything canine. I love canines, and every picture in that folder (and it's a BIG folder). Why should that be treated as less of a favorite? I think that if someone has a collection, it's kind of better to add something that goes there to it. Because the "favourites" folder is typically a jumble of random things anyway.

I always full-view but I never fav. I always collect.
I want to be able to categorize my favourites, and before this stamp I didn't even know that people just added thumbs to their collections.

I mean, they haven't seen the image yet they fav it? Why would anyone do that? :|

A "I'll look at it later" mentality maybe, I dunno, I made this stamp before all the features were active, at the time it seemed rather stupid and other people were complaining about it at the time, but yeah I too collect a lot of stuff these days.

Ah, I forgot to check the date, silly me :x
But yeah, I still see the point of the stamp, I just love collecting myself XD

I agree. I mean, they could have just added a folder feature, not a whole new way to fav.

One of my friends collects stuff by only looking at the thumbnail. She doesn't even full-view, which isn't fair to the artist that put the effort in.
