meaningless faves by PyroDarknessANNY meaningless faves by PyroDarknessANNY
my 2nd stamp, realy im not that good at them , but cant hurt to give it ago right?

this ones for the :iconanti-bots:

amied at fave bots / scripts, having your work faved by an empty and automated account is dissapointing and offoncive. becouse there is no one atculy looking at the art in the first place, its mearly a random action preformed by a program acting on its own.

Darkdex52 was one of first 'bots' and  biggest / longest running offender. 
sadly tho DA  dose not give a shit about this as that account has been reported to them numerous times over the years.

I used to run the anti-bots group but   left a few years back.
*(got to busy with other stuff)  i'm not sure if the group still updates or who's running it now.

thanks very much. it does feel futile fighting him, but i just feel so badly seeing naive people tricked into giving their money away. the guy must be filthy rich already. i get exasperated just trying to explain the deceitful technique from start to finish. a friend came over to use my computer, and as i was explaining DarkDex52's technique to her, you guessed it, his bot faved her right then and there. who HASN'T had DarkDex52 favorites? the bot faved a blank deviation one time. i would upload individual letters to get thumb codes to use for decoration ~ the bot would fave the "c" bot not the "d", duh. fave my screenshots of dumb stuff. and most people just cannot see through it "Ooooh, i got FAVED!". now DarkDex52 has disabled comments on his profile page, grrrrrrrr. 

may i have your permission to hang your drawing of the alien up in my alien collection on my profile page?

I admire your conviction to this  cause.
me and a few others fought hard  in the beginning of  the  bot scourge, but   eventually all just gave up on it.
simply because  we were not just fighting these false accounts  but  also the site its self.   DA staff are very aware of  bots, 
and they had made it clear to us that they weren't going to do jack diddly squat about it.   it might be dishonest to the  majority of us  but  all DA cares about is it  daily traffic and  revenue raising.   

its the same story in other issues with this site as well , harassment? , art thrift ? even with adequate proof of these things  DA just does not care.  its very difficult to get them to do anything. 

the best you can hope for is to raise awareness of these unscrupulous accounts and encourage others to block them  cause god knows DA won't ban them , and even then they tend to just come back with sock-puppet accounts. 

good luck to you  if you can make a change on this matter.  but  don't  let it  get to you when you come to that inevitable brick wall. 

and  feel free to share my art as you please!
tho these days most of my work is pony related.  but its always good to hear  from people who  take the time to  sift thru my gallery and  comment on works not just fave them.

i abhor faving and running. i am way backed up on deviations of friends to view, and do not appreciate when others suggest i just "x" them out. when i watch someone as i just watched you, i will leave the notification until i can find the time to go look in the gallery and enjoy some good art. i am so backed up because for each 10 comments i send out, maybe 9 come back! and i love it, but i will never catch up. it's a long story, but i am only interested in genuine people with good hearts, who at least try to be unselfish. looking for good art? i appreciate the art of everyone on dA, so i am not out hunting for good art. my favorite artist just turned 14 and draws stick figures, but you should see the emotion in it.

ah yep' 
yeah im all for encouraging others to grow and develop their skills , find what  mediums suit them best and all that.
trouble is DA can be quite a cold place at times  alot of people  just fave with out ever  interacting with one another. 

and it can be  very difficult to get  many if any  views or likes on a piece at times.

They are, indeed, a bit disheartening.

IDEA! limit faves to three times a day or some other number, same with llamas, cakes, watches, and so forth!

And real people also do this. Gee, it's like the comments vs favorites debate all over again.

Me, I often fave without commenting. But that's just me, and to me when a real person faves, it is still a gesture of appreciation. Now I understand why your dislike of bots, but how is a stamp going to stop them? It won't.
