Fav spamming is bad

Fri May 20, 2011, 5:36 AM
this guy darkdex52 spends literally his time faving all of da newest deviations (without even looking at them I'm sure, just drag and droping thumbnails) to get attention and watchers and stuff. Just look at the amount of thx for the fav he get's a minute. It's just ridiculous... WTF is happening in this people's mind???? 0_O I don't see how you can get any satifaction of your own work if you just cheat the system trying to get views and attention.... lame :)

I don't know why I'm writting this since I don't really care, but well, I guess it was the shout of the day ;)

Five years later and this is still an issue.
Everything I post gets at least one favourite. I go to the person who has favourited my work and what a surprise, they're front page is filled with literally thousands of "Thank's for the fav" posts.
I'd rather not have anything at all if all I'm getting is lies.
Deviantart, fix your shit.

Wow, I never realized that it was pretty bad. I usually "fav" works when I really like them, or want to go back to them to credit them if I used them. I never put anything on this account so I never viewed it as cheating the system to get attention. I really had no idea...but at least I do now.

It's funny because I've received multiple warning about this guy today. Came across your journal while doing some research on him and, guess what, he's still favespamming. :/

This is a wild accusation. I look at every deviation I favorite and I do it to increase people's self-esteem. If they see a popular person faving their work, they feel a lot happier and set their goals to become even better.

I've been a member for many years and what I do is just not paying attention to those type of members. what usually happens is they just fade away because they have nothing real to contribute, or one day they find out what it's all about and really become active members.

At first I didn't want to react to this one :D But of course, I am now... I have noticed the same behaviour with others as well, but... We can't blame them for "using" the system... whenever people visit their page to say thanks and then notice there is nothing significant going on (no deviations or just very crappy stuff... and I try not to use the word "crappy" but again, I did, probably including alot of my own stuff :p). And when there is nothing to see, you kind of know it's... a waste of time to even bother saying thank you :d Anyhow... to get more of a "pro" approach one will have to start an account at "behance.net" or "shadowness.com" and some others out there...

Agreed, c'est un drôle de truc, mais c'est la DALife, après tout, quand tu vois aussi certaines guéguerres et autres couenneries entre membres et groupes pour des raisons d'égo à la mord moi le neutron, franchement, DA reste du coup malgré tout un vaste espace assez libertaire et propice à de belles choses, mais quoiqu'il en soit : d'accord avec le coup de gueule!

I have a watcher like this, she has 70K favs and favs EVERYTHING I draw, even scraps and doodles that i don't even want people to see.

what is the value of a fav if you fav everything? That's putting work i put 50 hours in on the same level as 5 minutes, why even bother right?

I bet its a pageview plot. And thus, I won't check out his page and increment it any more.

j'avoue que j'ai watché des gars dont j'adore le travail mais au final je ne passe presque jamais dans ma watch list (à part pr faire le ménage) parceque je suis un glandeur :)

"I don't see how you can get any satifaction of your own work if you just cheat the system trying to get views and attention.... lame"

Yeah, I experienced that too when I went to thank someone who faved my work but when I got to his page and saw all the thank yous in his page per minute...I left :XD: I could say the same for those people who buy pageviews...though I don't really see anything wrong with it since it's not hurting anyone....I just don't see the point of buying pageviews since it's not like you got them with your own talent and hardwork ^^;
