Observations


Since the last update on February 27, 2018, the numbers have gone up as usual. sakimichan continues dominating the #1 spot with an added watcher count of almost 10,627 in this period. Three other deviants gained more watchers than sakimichan during this time: rossdraws (+13,451) wlop (+12,591), and Picolo-kun (+11,325). Some new deviants have climbed their way on to the list: Hyanna-Natsu (#92) and Leonidafremov (#100). Biggest movers in this period in terms of rank change:

+13 dandonfuga
+12 larienne
+12 CGCookie
+12 zarla
+11 faestock
-05 jollyjack
-05 redjuice999
-06 celesse

More Information


In the journal entry celebrating DeviantART's 15th birthday, the top 10 deviants by watcher count was included. Before that, there wasn't really a toplist anywhere else. It falls to the community to build it's own list. I gathered the initial names through Google-Fu and wading through a lot of DevART pages. It's the perfect project for crowd-sourcing.

There's lots of reasons why a top list is useful. I'm a bit of a stat geek so I just like knowing stuff like this. I hope to keep this list updated over time to maintain its usefulness. Any help is definitely appreciated. Special thanks to danlev who checked the numbers against the database to confirm they were accurate back in July 2014 and again in March 2018. The initial lists were only the top 50. I expanded the list to 100 with a later revision. While I haven't gotten confirmation for these newer revisions, I'm reasonably sure they are accurate.

You can find the older archived rankings on the sidebar. Please fave this article if you found it useful. The more faves it gets, the higher it shows in search results for other people to find. I'll send a llama or a point back in thanks. Comments and faves are definitely appreciated.

101. Hyanna-Natsu 71,508
102. Leonidafremov 71,475

Yep! You're only missing two: 

62,712 watchers: dandonfuga
61,016 watchers: Ganassa

Also, not sure if you're doing everything manually, but if you want an easy way to automate fetching stats for a group of users, you can use this formula in a Google Sheet:

=TRANSPOSE(IMPORTXML(A1,"//*[contains(@class, 'pppbox')]/strong"))

And in cell A1, you can put a URL of a deviant's profile. This will pull their current stats for Deviations, Comments, Pageviews, Scraps, Watchers, Critiques, Forum Posts, and Favorites.

You won't be able to do it for more than like 50 people because of rate limits, but it would make updating your list much easier! :)

Thanks for the info and the tip. 

I used to do it all manually.  Right now, I'm scripting it a bit with perl.  I still end up hitting the rate limit, so I have to do it over the course of a few hours. I do end up pasting the data into a Google Spreadsheet, so I'm going to play around with that improtxml function. It looks super useful.
