I don't fave spam for views by withdicedcorners I don't fave spam for views by withdicedcorners
How do you abuse the fave for pageviews?

Eaaaseeeyyy.
1. Go to http:// www. deviantart. com
2. Go to the Most Recent tab
3. Fave 80-100% of the arts recently posted
4. Wait for "thankees" and new watches :3


How do you recognise a fave abuser?
- Usually they fave your art within minutes of posting.
- When you check their page, you can see 20 other thanks within minutes or seconds of each other.
- When you check their favourites, they'll have everything from photos, to anime, to doodles to screenshots which, upon further stalking would probably reveal most of their posting time to be within the last 10-25 minutes or so

They just annoy the hell out of me when I get them :/

I do it because I like the art, am I not aloud to stalk the front page for new people?

Faving is okay. It's not okay when people abuse it. I only fave because I like it, or because I want a easier time finding it.

DarkDex52 has amassed over 60,000 watchers now using his computer-code bot. he has been begging money from them since 2011 (read his journals, you'll see!). of course i am blocked there for speaking my mind to him. read the comments there! school kids donating money to his sob stories. ugh.

Exactly.  I'm like, "if you don't actually like my art, don't click the damn button."

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT EXISTED! XD Even if I tried that, (I have faved A LOT)
it wouldn't work. I will always try to get pageviews by artwork! :)

Woot yey~ I'm glad you posted this. I'm guilty of fave-running sometimes, but I do my best to leave honest comments saying what I liked about the art whenever I can, and even when I don't comment, it doesn't mean I don't care bout the work : ) --And I definitely don't fave for views, because I really don't see a point to it x3

I favorite things because I like a lot of stuff and may leave a comment. But I never go to the front page. I check my inbox for great things ^^

I thank people for actually browsing my page, but in truth I could care less about pageviews.

The point is someone who goes onto the homepage and fave everything in the newest 3 to 5 to 10 pages in hopes that some of those deviation owners will come over to thank him thus raking him in some screentime and page views.

Do you get this?

don't get mad O_O

- - - -- - - -
Sorry, i don't want to get killed.
this
is
not
a
joke!
carry
on
reading!
or
you
will
die,
even
if
you
only
looked
at
the
word
warning!


ONCE
THERE
WAS
A
LITTLE
GIRL
CALLED
CLARISSA,
SHE
WAS
10
YEARS
OLD
AND
SHE
LIVED
IN
A
MENTAL
HOSPITAL,
BEACUSE
SHE
KILLED
HER
MUM
AND
DAD.








SHE
GOT
SO
BAD
SHE
STARTED
TO
KILL
ALL
THE
STAFF
IN
THE
HOSPITAL
SO
THE
GOVERMENT
DECIDED
THAT
THE
BEST
IDEA
WAS
TO
GET
RID
OF
HER
SO
THEY
SET
UP
A
SPECIAL
ROOM
TO
KILL
HER,
AS
HUMANE
AS
POSSIBLE
BUT
IT
WENT
RONG
THE
MACHINE
THEY
WERE
USEING
WENT
WRONG.








AND
SHE
WAS
SAT
THERE
IN
AGONY
FOR
HOURS
UNTILL
SHE
FINALLY
DIED.








NOW
EVERY
WEEK
ON
THE
DAY
OF
HER
DEATH
SHE
RETURNS
TO THE
PERSON
THAT
READS
THIS
LETTER,
ON
A
MONDAY
NIGHT
AT
12:00
SHE
KREEPS
INTO
YOUR
ROOM
AND
KILLS
YOU,
BUT
SLOWLY
AND
PAINFULLY
SLOWLY
CUTTING
DIFFRENT
PARTS
OF
UR
BODY
THEN
WATCHES
YOU
BLEED
TO
DEATH
IF
YOU
DONT
SEND
THIS
TO
20
PEOPLE
BY
MIDNIGHT
SHELL
BE
COMEING
TO KILL
YOU!
SEND
IT
SO
SHE
HAS
ANOTHER
LOAD
OF
PEOPLE
TO
GET
AND
FORGETS
ABOUT
YOU
DONT
BELVE ME
HEY?

EXAMPLE
1:
JENNY
DIDNT BELIVE THIS AND DELETED IT WITHOUT EVEN READING THE WHOLE THING! A FEW DAYS LATER ON THE MONDAY NIGHT SHE WAS WOKEN UP BYE LOUDE FOOTSTEPS AND HEAVY BREETHING THERE WAS CLARISSA STANDING THERE WITH A HUGE KNIFE AND WELL JENNY IS HISTORY NOW.









EXAMPLE
2:
TOM
ONLY SENT IT TO 5 PEOPLE CUZ HE THOUGHT HED BE SAFE AND IT WAS PROBLY JUST A JOKE BUT OH HOW RONG WAS HE! HE DIED THE NEXT NIGHT ON MONDAY AND ILL TELL YA NOW IT WASNT PRETTY(JUST CUZ HE SENT FIVE HE DIDNT COMPLETE THE TASK)

EXAMPLE
3:
JOEANNA
SENT IT TO 19 PEOPLE SHE THOUGHT IT WAS CLOSE ENOUGH AND WOULD DO BUT SHE WAS WRONG SHE DIED THAT NIGHT ON A MONDAY AND ONCE AGAIN IT WASNT

comments mean WAY more than faves ;] It actually is quite sad how most people 'favefavefave'.. A favourite is something you'll want to see again! A piece of art you don't have to dig up under 20k others...

Great stamp ;]

Oh, yeah. It's annoying all right. Especially considering I'm an author. It's very obvious that whoever faved in that time didn't even read it. I fave what I like, not just anything.

I think it's okay to say thanks if someone faves your art, kind of a good manner. But to cash on someone's good nature to up your pageview? That's what I'm stabbing at in this stamp^^

I just don't know why some people drop to that level xD;

I can't fathom it either. If people thank me than they do. If they don't, it's not a big deal. o.o; The art is the best part, it's amazing to see the different techniques of certain artists and a lot of the artist in general. ^^;;

I fave alot. I fave the recent post ((if I like the art)) and I like photos AND anime. I am not one category which just has to like ONE type of art. I am not one of those snobby artist who dont want to fave anything and make other people think that I am so good that I dont need to fave. I fave art which I think needs to be fave and which looks good :3. Also I am not one of those who just fave the popular art.
