Anyone else ever feel like deviantART is more of a popularity contest then anything else?
I mean I've seen some great pieces lose in terms of faves/views to a simple chibi. I've seen terrible pieces have hundreds and hundreds of faves, like really bad. I've seen a Youtuber's account get a shit ton of watchers for average art. It seems kinda unfair. dA's community feeds the already popular and lets the other great unknown artists I've seen starve.
Hell I've tried faving, commenting, and watching a lot of people once and my pageviews skyrocketed and I got quite a bit of watchers. Those watchers don't really care about me now, but that proves my point. Just get you plzzz on and start commenting and faving left and right and you'll be flooded with watchers and faves. Gotta make sure you can plzzz good cause flashy pages = more watchers.
Kind of a bunk system haha.
dA doesn't do much of anything about it either, but I don't know if there's anything they can do about it other than featuring deviants.
