Self imposed rules of etiquette in posting?

I was wondering if anyone here has rules of etiquette they follow for themselves when commenting. I have a couple. One is I try not to make a comment on a thread without first commenting on the drawing, or the subject. After I comment on the subject on the post, I feel free to make comments maybe not addressing the subject of the post.

I also try to thank everyone for their comments.


Another is I try to find something positive say about a drawing. Even though I often think I should create some sort of scale. At times I find myself saying something like great drawing, when the drawing is more like pretty good. I feel that I've cheapened the word great, so when I see a drawing that I consider
great, the compliment may seem a little less genuine.

Any thoughts?

Whew .. I may be a sarcastic bastard - but I do have feelings ya know :oops: !

I think this is a good (!) topic Tom .. I'm pretty sure the main reason people don't stick around is that they get bored with the "great drawing" posts after awhile.

I always try to say something positive about people's work because I know how much work goes into drawing/art. If the artist asks for a critique I will try to give one if I can.

It is hard for me to give critiques because I am so new to drawing myself. Sometimes I do have ideas that I would like to give, but i don't because I don't want to seem like some know it all or something like that! But sometimes I do give them if I think it will really benefit the artist. I do always give a compliment first though.
