I have already post this in the general chat forum but I'll post it here so more peeps can see it
Twice this has happened to me. I don't mind people playing my levels and giving it a heart. It's up to them to give it a heart or heart me as a creator. But what I don't like is people playing my levels and hearting them and me and then saying "I hearted you so can you return the favour and heart me back"
My answer is..............NO! You choose to heart me and my level and far as I can remember I didn't ask you or any one to heart me. So where they got this "return the favour" idea from I have no idea. Heck even if they unheart me I don't mind or care.
So this is a prewarning to every one.
I will not h4h! END OF! BUT! I will play your levels and if I think it's good and I love it then I will heart but I will not heart if I dislike it.

I personally think people who act like a spaz because they've been asked for a h4h or they won't give out a simple heart are pathetic.
it's nice to be nice and it's free..get a grip.

I've been thinking, that we should do some sort of club/thing, where we're REALLY trying to tell people how to do good levels (and why on the Earth H4H - and spam levels are bad).
I know that there are many of "How to make a good level"-levels, but some people/sacks still keep spamming the LBPs with useless, empty levels. All of them aren't H4H levels.
That's sort of weird.
I commented on one guy's level. I tried to tell him in the message, that he really needs to improve his skills if he wants a lot of plays and hearts. He just deleted my comment...
I thought it was a very helpful and a truetful message.
Still, some people don't realise, that we aren't here for H4H. We're in LBPs, because we want to be creative and we want to play nice levels, and if we like it/them, then we might heart it/them.
You got to earn your hearts, people!

If I want to be sure I can easily find a level again, because I enjoyed it enough to want to go back, I'll heart that level.
If I like a level, but am not really excited about how cool it is, I'll rate it nicely, and possibly post a comment/review (including any suggestions which would make me enjoy the level more).
If a level is well put together, but simplistic or uninspired, I won't rate it, or heart it. If a level is a really great idea, but poorly executed, I also won't rate it. In either case, if I can come up with a way to put into words the reason why I don't like it, then I'll post a review/comment explaining that.
If a level has truly game-breaking bugs, or is simply so badly designed that it's unplayable, then I'll give it a negative rating. ANY time I give a negative rating, though, I make sure that I explain WHY I've given that rating. If I can't explain why I don't like a level, I won't rate it. I've only received one bad rating on one of my levels (not that impressive a feat with play counts as low as mine), from one person who tried playing it, and have yet to hear back after messaging them to ask why. I'd honestly prefer to hear "If you did this, your level would be better" and a bad rating, than to be hearted with no feedback.
If someone rates and hearts my level, and says "H4H" after the fact, then I'm not going to actively say "No I'm not hearting you" just because they asked for it. But I will need to be more impressed by a level from such a creator, because they've effectively tried to guilt trip me, and I don't appreciate it.
If you give a gift to someone, wait until they've unwrapped it, then say, "But you can only keep it if you buy me something" is rude.
Telling someone "I'll buy you a gift if you buy me one" isn't rude.
Publishing a level labeled "H4H" is a perfectly reasonable way to get more hearts - people who actively seek the pins and attention will find these levels, play, heart, and get hearts in return. No problem.
I don't much care about hearts, although it IS nice to see. And I would like to see more people playing my levels (they're advertised in my sig and the "Play my levels" thread, by the way). So I agree with the OP that hearting me then saying "H4H" isn't the way to get my attention.
