Watchers stamp by Retromissile Watchers stamp by Retromissile
Don't get me wrong. This stamp is not about me. =D I'm happy with the feedback I get so don't worry.

But it's a fact that I often calculated. If you take a look at the numbers of watchers of an artist and take a look at the generally received faves on his pictures, you'll see the result. It can be more or less than 10% but still...
So who is proud about a huge numbers of watchers today? The most of them want watchbacks or are bots.

<edit> This is not meant against lazy watchers or watchers with other reasons. It's more for the people who think they are better cause of a lot of watchers. Thank you.

I'm happy about my watchers. I love you. :hug:

It's more like 1% for me. Only the friends I talk to/know on the side actually comment on my work. XD

Wow. It's much faster on my office computer here. Is it the same with your's? I guess I should make it slower. At home it's really slow. °_O

It's not really slow, and when layers imposed each other, they look not really good for recognition. Strange, brainwashing animation -_o

So sad how I have 100 or more watchers, and literally the same 20 are always the ones to chat around with me. *sigh* But I'm quite proud of my twenty, and hope that more than then will appear eventually <3 |D

You know, this kind of thought has crossed my mind, but I hadn't really thought of it...but you're totally right. It's sad, really. :/ But thank you for this stamp. I would use it if I could. xD

Normal people use it to stay up to date with one artist's work. It's comfortable if people wouldn't see it as a status symbol.

Haha! Eine interessante Beobachtung! :lol:
Ich glaube du haßt recht. Ich kommentiere nicht alle Leute die ich ansehe, nur meine kleine Gruppe von Freunden, mit wem ich etwas gemeinsames habe, oder einige Bilder von unbekannten Menschen, die mir gut gefallen. Und ich selbst finde kleine Gruppen von Freunden besser, als große Gedränge. :)

I say it's quite irony of purpose of deviantART. It didn't take into thinking that it might be overpopulated with wolves and there won't be any sheep to feed those with. At least that's how I take this matter.
And put that knife away!

I'm giving watches rather very rarely these days, mostly if person who watches me is more than spectator or if their stuff is too great to be unseen (and I wish that someone would set a watch for me on that second reason. Probably not gonna happen :lol:).

Yeh. I had tousands of them in the past. But that's not what the stamp is about. It's about the artists who think they are cool with all their fake watchers. =D

I see those people more and more often here on dA. D:

I myself don't really care about the number of watchers. Nor pageviews.

Me neither. I'm happy with what I got and the fun I have with my pictures. And of course the few people who makes it happy. =D

I never fav, I just watch the art.

So saying that people who watch you, but don't fav your art are just bots or people who want to be watched back is too simple.

And I don't want to be called a bot. :/

Sodelle. Ich hab jetzt was im Kommentar verändert und hoffe, dass man es besser versteht. Es geht mehr um die Künstler, die sich mit ihren Watchern brüsten und für was Besseres halten. Dabei ist ein Großteil ihrer Watcher halt nicht wegen seinen Skills da.

Wenn du dir die Bilder anguckst musst du dich nicht als Bot sehen. Das habe ich natürlich nicht so gemeint. "Most of them" bedeutet die meisten von ihnen. Das heißt dass nicht alle Bots sind. ;)

Also sorry, falls ich dich beleidigt haben könnte.
