Your extreme usage of the "watchers only" feature is probably hurting your viewer count.
I stumbled across your gallery. Then, DA showed me nine smeary squares, as "Other art from this artist you might enjoy"
So much of your gallery is hidden away, that it's hard to tell if you're worth watching or not.
Don't really know whats the issue with that since its very free to give my profile a +watch and also free to unwatch if not happy with what you see... am I right or am I right?
