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)

they have to ask nicely, like "if you like this, i'd be thankful for you voting for me," or something like that. and only once, not if they just keep saying it.

It's annoying if they comment on every profile, they should make a journal only!

I don't really think it's completely fair.
I mean, if one had lots of friends and asked them all to vote when they didn't really deserve it, then it'd be unfair to another person who really did deserve it but didn't ask anyone.
I think it's best to let it be. (:
But I'm now completely 100% against it either. Just as long as it remains fair.

I also agree with the main feelings in this poll, but also feel that it's ok to tell your friends, or people that you know, "hey, my piece is in a contest, check it out!" You've then let the people that you know that you've entered a contest and that they can vote if they want. My sister just did that to me with some glasswork that she did, and I went and checked out the contest. There were a couple of entries that were better than hers and one that was absolutely breathtaking - I voted for that one because the artist deserved the vote. Yes, I let my sister know and she understood - she's an artist and knew that the other piece was the one that deserved the first place. I got lucky - my sis didn't kill me ;)

I agree with the main feelings going around here, but I think it's ok to ask people who you voted for and looked at to at least check yours out, not necessarily ask to vote. Just be like check mine out too please, and then if they like it they can vote if they want.

I don't like it. I think if they like them, they should vote for them, without the person telling them to. If they did, it would be more about popularity, and not the drawing itself

I feel like if you ask politely and just simply ask for your friends' and watchers' support if they think you are deserving of their vote, then yes, it's okay. It's all in HOW you ask it.

It's okay to ask, but the watchers should look and DECIDE if they like it more than the other entries. One of the people I watch asked me to vote for them once, but I looked at all the entries in the contest and decided that I liked a different picture and voted for that. The person was fine with it, not bothered at all. I wish people would behave more like that.

Unless voting for someone is beneficial for people other than the one asking for the vote (like say to for charity), if someone says to vote for them, I don't. It feels too much like they are trying to manipulate it through their fame than to actually win by being deserving of it.

I dislike people who scream "VOTE FOR ME" when they don't really deserve it. Contests shouldn't be about popularity.
