The surefire fastest way to 40,000 hits on dA is to steal someones art. You can sometimes get even more! Pretty sweet deal, eh?
There's an odd fascination between people and art theft. It seems like the kind of drama everyones dying to get their noses in. But why give it the attention it doesn't deserve? I met a person I used to know on dA because she had been accused of ripping someone elses art. 20,000 + hits later, she was let off with quite a nice boost. It's likely the best publicity you can get on dA.
With all of the pathetic things people do to get attention on dA (create 200 accounts to fave their own work, misscategorize things so they'll end up on the main page, put popular searches like loish or naruto in their keywords just to show up on the searches, etc etc) I'm absolutely shocked more people haven't caught on to the amazing free publicity of stealing and ripping art! All made possible, because we can't just stick out of things that aren't even out business to begin with.
So on the subject, what's the stupidest thing you guys have seen for people to try to get attention?
My favourite is the "I am leaving dA FOREV" every second week stunt. Oh, that's golden
ps. Sorry to dissapoint those who actually thought I had a magical way to get 40K fast. Apparantly commenting doesn't help; my friend *rabid-potato
gave out over 100 comments for every 10 she got, and my other friend ~Epiaruna
gave 42.89 comments per day since she joined DA. Neither of them have 40K hits altogether; they barely have 40,000 hits between the two of them!R E S O U R C E S
