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-

You're my stars,
My planets,
My solar system,
My entire sky.
You're my dawn
After nightfall,
You're the reason I wake up
With a smile.
You're my light
In the deepest darkness
You're my hope
When all else is lost
You're my world,
My sunshine,
My purpose,
My true happiness.
You're my perfect partner
On a dance floor made for two.
Together we dance among the stars,
Content as we are.
And as long as you believe,
I'll believe.
And as long as we believe together,
My life could not get better.

Artist | Photography
I'm a 17.5 year old teenager from Israel. My main interests are photography, music, digital art and programming.
In addition to studying in high-school with my friends, I'm a student for BS.c in Computer science at Tel-Aviv university.

I'm a big fan of open-source and for that reason I try to contribute to GIMP (The open source image manipulation program - an excellent alternative for Photoshop). I fixed several bugs, and added some new features/plugins that are now part of the official distribution. Lately, I became an official developer, after getting my commit access to the central code repository.

When I'm not on the computer programming, I'm a camping guide in the youth movement "Bney Hamoshavim" - I'm responsible for building camps and for teaching kids how to work with ropes and other equipment.

Current Residence: Israel
Favourite style of art: Fantasy Digital Painiting/Photography
Operating System: Windows XP
MP3 player of choice: iRiver
Wallpaper of choice: My own photographs =)
So, today I broke the 10,000 pageviews barrier, so I would really like to thanks everyone who watches me here in deviantart =) I really enjoy it here, and I have special thanks to the people who took the time to five me feedback on my works.

Also thanks to the people who support in me in my different activities - for everything from developing GIMP and in my attempts to support my country (Israel) and make people here see that "We are not the bad guys".

Many thanks again.

Also, for everyone who follows the Hebrew calender, שנה טובה/"Shana Tova"/Happy new Year!


נו, אז אחרי כמעט 3 שנים שבהן אני נמצא באתר, עברתי סוף סוף את גבול ה10,000 צפיות. תודה רבה לכל מי שצפה בי, ולכל מי שהקדיש את הזמן לתת לי משוב על עבודותי =)

בנוסף, תודה לכל מי שהלכו אף מעבר לזה ותמכו בי ועודדו אותי בפעילויות הנוספות בהן אני מעורב - החל מהחלק שאני לקוח בפיתוח גימפ ועד לעבודות התמיכה בישראל שפרסמתי במהלך שהותי פה (בייחוד במהלך עופרת יצוקה).

אז שוב, רוב תודות.

ולכל עם ישראל, שנה טובה - שנת בריאות, אושר, הצלחה ויצירה.

To have something implies total dominion. Until now, to acquire total dominion of a territory can only be obtained by war. What is obtained violently can be lost violently.
Never ending story, and one hell of a painful one. What is obtained by law has a greater capacity for permanence. Can a world court justice determine the right to own a land? Can a territory be obtained by rational means thanks to intelligence?
