Something I noticed about Favorite feature

KaiDragon 4 years ago updated by Digby (Community Manager) 3 years ago 3

Well I don't know if this has been mentioned already, I looked and couldn't find anything like it, so my apologies if I done goofed up.


I noticed that if I go into my own art submission that I have the ability to favorite it myself. I thought clicking that tab would show me who has fav'd that particular picture, but it added a favorite from myself to myself. I was just wondering if this is intended, maybe as part of some wider system or future plan?

You can favorite and promote your own submissions, but this isn't really a problem. The biggest abuse that could come of this is with people boosting their own submission popularity, but the increase in one favorite/promote won't make much of a difference.


I'd say this is similar to the way you can like and favorite your own posts on Twitter and Facebook. The community will determine if this is acceptable or not as time goes on.

Favorites are private likes so you wouldn't be able to see a list of who favorited what in the first place. But this is probably a bug, just like being able to promote your own submissions :s

To be honest I think you should be able to promote your things at least once. I can picture it being very useful to gain more exposure on older uploads, especially after you gain a lot more followers.
