These are the most effective tips for giving and getting llamas for all you dedicated traders out there.
Every link in this article goes to the exact location of each thing.
Tools:Make sure you have the One Click Llama Button installed. It's the best llama giving tool ever made. The OCLB Helper works with this script to make it so you can give to everyone on a page with a single click. Having both will save the most of your time.
Make an easy llama giving link with this tool. Use it in your signature, profile, and comments.
You can make this link super short (for your signature) using a site such as bit.ly or goo.gl
Every week I post the newest members of many traders lists here.
Who To Give To:
Give llamas to the newest members of llamalist, give-llamageta-llama, and giveallamagetallama.
The newest commenters of llama-list and the people featured in the lists made by dADroid-bot in the comments. This is the best place to do so because unlike other groups dADroid-bot gets traders from 3 different sources.
Give a llama to anyone you see mentioning llama trading or returning in their comment as you browse dA.
Buy Llamas:The BEST way to receive llamas is with dAhub. You can get 3.75 llamas per point at donations of 100 or more. Minimum donation of 20 points. Donations of 20 - 99 points get you 3 llamas per point. Put feature me llama in your donation message. I got to runaway llamas twice this way.
Donate points to me, see my donation pool for up to date info. I accept any amount of points. You can get loads of llamas for cheap! Llamas are automatically given to you using a bot.
