Exploiting dA Legally With A Script
2018 edit: This is old news and no longer relevant!
In short, what is this news about?

It's about accounts that use a script to add ten thousands of deviants to their watchlist in a matter of days. Some people backwatch, that's how the script-account gains popularity and watchers (or points via donation if you want to). Even if they don't backwatch, some people will at least look at the site and may watch through your gallery or journal.
It's legal, I asked the helpdesk on this.
The problem is that the deviants being added by the script feel betrayed and disappointed. I want to inform people about this in the first place so they don't fall for those "traps". You can have a look at their gallery stats to see if there's something suspicious like ten thousands of watches. A profile full of "Thank you for the watch" comments is also suspicious.
Ideally however, I'd like deviantART to improve their security so those scripts stop working. I fear those scripts to get popular and watch-

It's been awhile

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 10, 2014, 12:38 AM
Since I've been able to create my own work!
I've been doing nothing but client work ...pays the tuition bills, but can't say it satisfies my artistic soul.

It's funny, when I finally start making a decent living at this, I'm miserable and frustrated that I can't paint what I want anymore. I feel as though I've sold out.
Is this normal?

I miss you all so much - I really want to catch up on all the creative directions, new stuff you've been posting. I have lots of new work I haven't posted, just needs those finishing touches...

See you soon :)

"Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs

Your work is breathtaking. I have to admit a bit of professional jealousy. I will be "stalking" you.
