There is an unbelievable torrent of new art coming in every day. I tried to keep up with the stream for 20 minutes, with the screen refilling every 15 seconds or so. I presume Faves are discovered more though the various categories of personal interest, because I can't see people monitoring new arrivals for very long.
Faves are oddly addictive, perhaps too much so. I'm tempted to post older work just to see if anything gets a reaction, and to finish up my current works, long and short, for the same reason.
I still have to look in to how to get artwork critiqued, which may not be possible with my current membership.
