STOP by Twistazoomalark STOP by Twistazoomalark
I'm sorry for the stamp spammage lately, but I've only seen one stamp with this message, and it needs to be learned.

STOP BEGGING FOR POINTS ON PEOPLES' PAGES.

Seriously, I've seen messages on peoples' pages of people begging for points for this or that when I go to thank people for favorites.

I have to say; it's pretty damn annoying.

I don't care what you will give me as an award or a gift, I don't care if you will favorite everything in my gallery. I WILL GIVE YOU POINTS WHEN I DEEM NECESSARY. If you want points so bad, start a freaking donation pool. People will give you points when they want to. You may never know who will give you them. JUST DON'T BEG FOR THEM.

I am so tired of people doing this. I see so many of my friends' pages spammed with people wanting points.

Seriously, grow up. It not only makes you sound incredibly annoying and whiny, it makes you sound like an attention-wanting twat.

*Edit*

No, I personally never been asked for points, but I've seen so many of my friends who have, especially one in particular. I've gone to say thank you, and the first thing I see on my friends' pages are people begging for points. It's utterly pathetic; "I need these points!" I doubt it. Points will get you nothing outside of deviantART, nor are they valuable elsewhere on the internet/in real life, so shut up and quit your begging. I don't care if you're collecting them for a Premium Membership for yourself or your friend. Do that on your own page, not mine or my friends. I'm sure they don't appreciate you pestering them. :| Yes, it can, and I'm sick of it. People are so stupid, and they're not even trying to be polite about it. No amount of "Pleases" and "Thank Yous" can cover up the fact that you're begging. Suck it up that things are slow, and open a damn donation pool. People will give points to you when they feel like it.

Sorry for the rant, but I seriously needed to make this. This is more for people who have gone through this and/or are currently getting spammed by these people. You have my utmost sympathy.

Oh my, I've had experience like this before despite the fact I have a "Please do not ask me for points" sign on my page as well as me saying in big text "Do not ask me for points, otherwise you will get blocked."

I've had three people so far who have begged me for points and I all told them off and blocked them. I also told them I give my points out via giveaways and other things like that. I don't give out points to desperate beggars.

One of them actually said on my front page "Hello? I do Watch for points." I told them off about it and I blocked them - I noticed that they deactivated their account. The next day the same person (with a brand new different account) wrote on my page, saying "Hello. Watch?" so I just told her that I will report her to the DA admins for spamming and harassment. She deactivated that account as well :lol:

YES TO THE MAX. THANK YOU! :excited:
I used to get these messages...I hated them then, and I still hate them now. :upset:

Speaking from experience, I find it especially rude when they beg me for points and don't even know me in the first place; they're not looking at my page or even thanking me for the fave, they're just coming to my page to say, "HAI PLZ GIV MEE POINTZ LOL." Not only is it incredibly rude, not only does it make them seem like whores, but it gives me a terrible first impression of them, and only makes me want to avoid them.

Thankfully, I don't see much of them anymore, but any amount of those messages is too much in my estimation. :nod:

You're very welcome! :tighthug: I'm so glad others are tired of it, too. :) I'm lucky and never have, but it irks me so much to see pages spammed with begging people. >____<

That's probably the number one reason why I made this; it's people you don't even know that more or less ask, not a friend. :roll: I know; it gives a horrible first impression, and their begging only gives me less of a reason to give you any, even if I was feeling generous that day. :no:

Woo! :highfive: I'm glad someone else agrees!

It used to happen to me, when I got a few points gave them away to Donation Pool, and I get messages from random Deviants like "I saw you donate, can you be nice and give me some points?" even though I ran out

Urgh, I know. >___< It happens to my friends that have points they gave away to people. >n> I more or less made it for people who have gone through this, such as yourself. :heart: I am one of the more lucky people who have never had this happen to me, but I feel bad for the people who do/have. ^^; It's so annoying; I've seen people who clearly say they don't have anymore points, and then a few comments later, I see people begging for them. >C It's ridiculous.

Thank you >C I hate it so much.

I mean, Points are cool, since they're like money for DA, but seriously, either buy them yourself, EARN THEM, or let people donate them WHEN THEY WANT TO. Quit begging for them.

^^; Oh, that's what you meant, sorry. Haha, pretty obsessive with those points, huh? Such a shame that you can't trade points for money. Yes, you're right and I commend your thoughts about it. :love: Exactly what donation pools are for. :nod:

It's okay. XD I can see where you're coming from. Yes, people can be, and it's so annoying. >C Eh, not really. I mean, think about it; the word would spread quickly, and then the wrong people would be here. More people would be trying to hack peoples' accounts for their points for their own purposes. ^^; I know it's a negative view, but really. ^^; Thank you. :bow: Exactly, and I wish more people saw that. :roll:
