Sometimes, I sometimes get really inspired and crap, but it doesn't always turn out so great........But most of the time it doesn't really matter to me, theres no point making DA boring.

Sometimes there's just stuff I want as many people as possible to see, even if it does suck. x3

Sometimes.. Depends really on how I feel. Sometimes I feel like my art isn't good enough to be submit so, I wont. Then, sometimes I will post a few things during the day when Im in a good mood. ^^ Really depends on my mood.

No, because I have nothing real to submit.
I DO feel compelled to check my messages, however. :nod:

Lately I have, and I've been feeling a little guilty because I haven't submited in so long! (But I'm so busy with school ><;) But usually I think you should just submit whenever you have art... and shouldn't feel pressured by others. Art is something you make on your own time when you are in the mood, inspired, etc. Otherwise, its usually something that isn't your best work. :D

Yes, I do...I kind of feel like people are sitting around waiting for something from me. At least, that's what I try to think of it as. It sort of motivates me to do any artwork at all.

Sometimes I do feel obliged and that is weird. I put it down to watchers being so picky to what they will and wont comment on. Seriously I believe half of mine are only waiting for my next simpsons/zelda parody and aren't really interested in anything else I create. It's sad, but well, lately I've been doing my own thing regardless :D

Sort of.. If I don't submit something for a while then the Ms and Cs die down a bit which makes it less fun ;_;

I feel compelled because it seems that people get bored of you if you dont. I feel like theres a responsibility to be submitting and theres some kind of pressure. Oh, and by submitting, my page is always fresh and refreshed on the site (where my piece will be newer than other peoples) and this will attract more people to my page.

Nope. There's many places elsewhere on the net to put my pictures and writings -- and, as of recent events, better places. If I have anything I want others to see, I'll just show it to the people I care about. I'm never going to get famous due to dA anyway.

I think DeviantArt has made me draw less than I used to (on paper), but made me want to show only good pieces of art.
Posting a lot helps with critism and advice to improve though =D

Nope, I think submitting art is really good, sometimes I don't because I think the drawing is crappy while some people submit every single doodle they make.
Since I started to submit I had a lot of improvements, so I love to do it! ^^
So I don't feel forced!

I'm not sure I understand this question. Are you impliy that DA is evil and that we only submit things here because of evil factors forcing us too and that otherwise we'd all be using (*snicker*) sheezy-art (yeah right, there's a reason they're not on top and it's a good non evil one too)? Or are you asking something else? I can't really answer until I undersrand it.

Furthermore:

If the meaning of the question is irrelevant, I just refuse to answer as I don't give out answers for someone else to think I'm voting for something other than what I actually voted for.

I feel like I'm wasting away my artistic muse if I don't draw anything...and I feel like I'm out of it if I don't submit anything to dA...and I feel bad for not wanting to draw fanart... >.< I want to draw my own crap though, but we all know that fanart is what draws more people to your page than original. Unless your original art is so good it's like super amazing! (which mine isn't yet)

Sometimes. I try to submit stuff once in a while. I have watchers you know, and they must have some reason to watch me. This week I submitted a jellyfish photograph, some Sonic porn and even a beautiful haiku just a few minutes ago...
