216 Views, 2 Favorites, and no comments?

post #1 of 96
Thread Starter 
I'm not a comment-fisher (or am I?), but I'm starting to question my beginner skills here! I've got a cake uploaded on 7/28ish, not a single comment but over 200 views and 2 favorites.

Not asking for comments, but was it that bad? heh
(To save my own ego, I'm chalking it up to one of the glitches on the site over the last several weeks!)

from one gallery supporter to another, (and i haven't seen your cake), there are tons of cakes that haven't gotten comments, and i can't understand why people would look at a cake, and not comment on it. if it's worth looking at, it's worth commenting on.

i'm sorry this has happened. i wish everyone, not just gallery supporters would take the time to comment on at least one cake when they come on here. it would make it so much easier for us gallery supporters, and a lot nicer for those who really want critiques for their cakes. icon_wink.gif

For some reason, a lot of people just don't like to comment. It's strange to me. Especially, as everyone always wants comments. But anyway, I think your cake looked great. And as I said in my comment - I loved your bow. It was so pretty and flowy.

A lot of people look at cakes and never post in the forums, so they may be shy about posting comments.

Personally I don't care much if I get comments and sometimes I will describe how I did the cake in my description so no one has to leave a comment asking how it was done icon_biggrin.gif

it doesn't take but a few seconds to post at least one comment on a cake. if everyone here did that, then there wouldn't be an overload of uncommented cakes. icon_wink.gif

I always try to post comments when I am looking at the cakes. It is always nice to do.

I have to admit I'm a lurker, I look at pics but don't comment on most of them. The main reason is most of the pictures I look at already have all the comments I can think of to make.
"oh it's so pretty" "it's so well done" "how did you do that" etc. etc.
I leave comments when i feel like what i have to say is different than everyone elses.... otherwise, i feel like it would be inadequate and might seem insincere (when it really isn't) ...

But I'm a lurker in the forums too, I don't post much anywhere.... fear of rejection or starting a fight i guess...

Someone told me when I asked the same thing...and they said look at how many views and not the comments and that helped..........I must have commented on 30 cakes today alone and there are still 12 pages of uncommented, its a shame....but you are doing great..don't worry about that....and welcome

Ok now I want to see it but can't find it. Where can i find it?

I have to admit that I too am guilt of looking, loving the cakes but not posting a comment. I didn't think about it. I guess we do want to know what other pro's think of our work. I will post comments on the ones I view from now on.

I understand that completely. I haven't gotten a comment on my Spongebob cake. 125 views (no favs and no comments). I am a gallery supporter too and I know there are a lot out there without comments. So if you take time to click on a cake and look come on and leave a comment. It does make people feel good. I know I look forward to them myself.

I think when we had those glitches in the last 2 weeks or so, some cakes never even made it onto the home page, therefore a lot of people never saw them, and thats usually when people leave comments. I know I uploaded a cake with a wedding dress around that time, and I had to really search to find it because the same photos stayed on the whole day.

I don't know. I always try to post a comment if I look, but sometimes I leave the computer and forget. BTW, your cakes are fantastic! So I wouldn't worry about it. icon_biggrin.gif
