Do you send a lot of 'random' VMs? By that, I mean VMs with no real topic to start the conversation other than just for the sake of saying hi, or VMs to someone you've yet to speak with who you'd like to get to know a little bit?

And when receiving them, how do you feel? Are you surprised, pleased, or maybe even worried by someone taking so much interest in you? If you receive a random VM from a staff member do you react differently? Do you get a lot of them?

Who was the last person you sent a random VM to or received one from?

>I don't personally send a lot of random ones out. I probably could meet a lot of people if I did, but I guess I am a little shy that way. XD


And when receiving them, how do you feel? Are you surprised, pleased, or maybe even worried by someone taking so much interest in you? If you receive a random VM from a staff member do you react differently? Do you get a lot of them?
>It depends on what the message itself is. XD If it's "Hey! What's up?" I'm like "Someone new to talk to!" But if it's "Hey Pikapal" I am more like "Huh, I wonder what they want?"

And if staff I didn't know randomly VMed me, I would be kinda like "Huh. I wonder what's up. Maybe they just wanna chat? Let's hope. XD"

Who was the last person you sent a random VM to or received one from?
Pfft, you know. XD But for everyone else, jsyk, it's Razor Leaf himself. XD

    If I'm interested in getting to know somebody, I'll send them a VM. I'm a fairly shy person though, so that doesn't happen a lot. I occasionally will compliment somebody on their avi, signature, etc., however.
    I'm always happy to start a conversation with somebody, so if somebody sends me a VM I'm pleased. If it's a staff member, I guess that's sort of cool. I don't get a lot of random VM's, though.
    I believe the last person I sent a random VM to was Meganium90. I was commenting on her cute avi. =P

    Do you send alot of random VMs?
    No, I usually VM for a reason. Sometimes I will VM someone when I want to chat, to ask a question, or comment someone's avatar or something.
    And when receiving them, how do you feel? Are you surprised, pleased, or maybe even worried by someone taking so much interest in you? If you receive a random VM from a staff member do you react differently? Do you get a lot of them?

    I usually dont expect VMs. I dontreally recieve alot. Im sometimes taken by surprise. If its from a staff memeber Im usually surprised but please that they've taken interest in me or even viewed my profile. I usually always answer any VMs I receive.

      For random vms that have no topic I send those all the time. As for talking to someone I haven't already spoken to, not usually unless I'm feeling adventurous.

      And when receiving them, how do you feel? Are you surprised, pleased, or maybe even worried by someone taking so much interest in you? If you receive a random VM from a staff member do you react differently? Do you get a lot of them?
      I'm pleased no matter who I get it from. Even if I might think it's dumb or whatever. Adds a little excitement to my super exciting day. Annnd I don't get many.

      Who was the last person you sent a random VM to or received one from?
      A random one to a friend: Scarf
      A random one to someone I didn't talk to before: Kenshin5

      I send VMs but always with some kind of topic in mind, like I liked their signature, saw a post that intrigued me, etc. But my reaction to VMs varies drastically with my ability to pay attention to my computer and my boredom. I like VMs but when I'm busy or don't feel like replying, if anyone VMs me I'm just like "ughhh go awayyy >:/" But then I reply anyway usually, lol.

        I rarely send random ones, but when I do it is a gif that I found amusing and wanted to spam somewhere. Or just saying Hi. That's to friends, though. If it's someone I don't really know I actually have some content in there.

        It's interesting receiving them, I guess. I mean, from someone new it's somewhat irritating because I personally would have put some proper text in if I wanted to talk or get to know someone. From friends it's fun because it's another start to a conversation, however bland or strange it may be. From staff it always provokes the immediate "what did I do wrong" reaction, which is quickly brushed off. And usually since the staff members who VM me are friends I don't even notice the status lol. I don't get a ton of them, mainly cause people I VM and who VM me do it to talk.

        Um the last person I sent a random one to was I think Live cause I had a gif to put somewhere and I was already spamming up Bloo's profile. Last person I got one from was johnny18 cause of my most fantastic avatar. Person I've got the most from is of course Shawn. :>

        I used to send random VMs a lot. I stopped mostly because people didn't reply to them. Now I send VMs with content to start a conversation. It works better.

        lol no I never send random VMs. But I do remember back in the day when the PM system was the only form of individual communication, I would send plenty of random PMs and I made quite a few friends that way, actually. Most of which I don't talk to much anymore, though.

        Yeah, I like sending stupid VMs. I spam Hiidoran with them all the time. :| And if he doesn't like it, then he can go climb a tree. If I get them, I'll probably respond, however I'm a little weirded out when it's from someone I've never talked to. Cause it's just like...well, obviously I don't have any inside jokes with that person, since I've never talk to them. So a random weird VM like "port side road skins" would just make me reply with "okay" lol. Last random VM I got was from Live Wire. He was ruffling his feathers.

        I send random vms all the time, seriously. Look at my conversations with Toujours, Vrai, Kaori, Opposite Day and... I can't think of anyone else I send/have recently sent really random stuff to longer than like 2 or 3 vms, lol. But everyone else it's like a random vm of idek. I only do it with my friends though cause everyone else I'm paranoid would think I'm crazy and want to delete idk.

        BUT, either way, for example last night I went around vming a few people something to do with #tpc in a Drakow-esque way and nobody really cared. :3

        As for replying, lol yeah you're lucky to get a reply out of me that is longer than a page in one time period. :x /terrible at replying

        I used to send a lot of random VMs before. I choose a person from my Recent Visitors tab, visit their profile, and just leave them a random HI HOW ARE YOU visitor message. :P Today...not that much anymore...I usually just let people VM me instead of me VMing them. lol

        The only person I send VMs to...because I can... is my pair quilzel. He likes them. :P

        How do I feel about receiving VMs? I feel pretty happy, actually. More like "omg this person wants to talk to me. yay!" The last person that VMed me was my PC brother Hybrid Trainer. :3 I'm quite happy that we're VMing again. :D

          I don't really send VMs. The last one I randomly sent was to Skymin. It was indeed a random one actually. Just stopped by to say hi and congratulate her on modship. We talked for a bit, and well yeah. I mostly just respond to those that are sent to me.

          Random VM's are fun and a great way to either break the ice or lighten the mood and cheer people up.

          I love to random VM people just simply because there is something about their profiles that I like and I want to make friend with them

          Usually I'll only send a random VM to a person that I've posted in their Welcome thread and I'm interested in getting to know them more. I don't mind getting getting random VM's myself, and I'll usually reply unless it's clearly spammy.

          I haven't gotten too many random VM's from staff, to be honest.

          Do you send a lot of 'random' VMs? By that, I mean VMs with no real topic to start the conversation other than just for the sake of saying hi, or VMs to someone you've yet to speak with who you'd like to get to know a little bit?

          I get a small amount of random vm's, and usually by all the same person xD

          And when receiving them, how do you feel? Are you surprised, pleased, or maybe even worried by someone taking so much interest in you? If you receive a random VM from a staff member do you react differently? Do you get a lot of them?


          I am usually pleased someone will take the time out to vm me, Staff or not

          Who was the last person you sent a random VM to or received one from?

          The last one was Vaporeon7, giving me my free kick XP

          Completely agree with Live on that it's just a way to set a happy mood and get to know someone as well, it's a fun way of communicating! I sent some random VM's myself, sometimes didn't get replies but that's okay! I don't mind it at all. I like receiving them as well

          I rarely send VMs, though I do respond to random ones unless they're just super annoying and/or is a "crying out for attention" type.

          I'm too shy to send out random ones unless it's someone I really know and haven't talked to lately. :( I wish I was, I'd probably know more people if I did.

          As for getting them, I love 'em! It's fun to talk and meet new people. SO BRING THEM ON. :D I almost always reply to them. It's a rare day when I can't find something to say.

          Last time I got random ones was my birthday, I'd say. Well, random in the sense that I got a lot from strangers. Besides that, I can't remember. :s

          When I was really new, I sent a ton of random VMs to people I liked being all shy and nooby, when in reality in my head I was like 'OMFG PLEASE LIKE ME I JUST WANT YOU TO LIKE ME!!!!'

          These days, I rarely send random VMs unless I see posts I really like and want to tell people they were awesome. That said, I still love getting random VMs. My most recent ones were from Sydian and Hiidoran, and I enjoyed them very much indeed :D

          I don't send them because I never know how people would react, since some people don't like it and all, but I love love loooove getting them, especially if it's from someone I don't really talk to so it's like ~making new friends~ and stuff. :D I do reply to them too~
