I definitely don't mind journal posts about "hey guys, I've entered this contest, if you like my entry, please vote for it" but I dislike people who comment on my deviations saying "very cool pict, hey can you vote for my...?"

If they ask nicely, as someone above said. Not if they're desperate.

I think it's fine. basically, if they say "Hey I'm entering this contest. I'd love it if you'd check out my entry and vote" or something along those lines I have no problem with it. But if it's more like "HEY EVERYBODY VOTE FOR ME CUZ IM AWESOME AND U ALL LOVE ME" then it's just obnoxious

I think it's okay, but if I see something I like better, I vote for that.

Ha- just above this post on DA was a journal from a girl asking her watches to vote for a friend. (Irony much)

I did because I like her, but yeah pushy people are annoying! You should vote for them because you want to.

As long as they're polite and keep the number of times asking to a minimum, it is fine. As long as you're not excessive, I see no problems.

I think as long as they aren't being pushy and they are asking nicely and asking ONLY their followers, then it's fine. but going to random people begging them to vote, that's just rude. (i've had it happen to me many times)
