|Ann and Sara's on stage hijinks make it to the top of the February most Favorite list.|
As some of you might know I usually post last months most favorite picture, on my profile page, at the start of each month. Yesterday I was checking the numbers to see which picture it would likely be and discovered that fewer and fewer of you probably know about this. Yesterday I noticed a significant increase, a very significant increase, in the number of hits I was getting. Well, I've had spikes before so just wrote it off as that. Then I looked today and I was shocked to see that I not only exceeded yesterdays numbers but, by and even greater amount. I was like, what the hell? So I looked around and began to notice that it was not just my stats doing this. A lot of people's pages were showing the same thing. That led me to thinking it was probably something that DA had done and, sure enough, they did. Apparently, in the past, if someone viewed an upload of yours and did not get there via the profile page, then the counter didn't register the hit. I had always noticed that my deviant views were over ten times what my page views were and, well, now I know why. So if you get a huge whopping increase, that started yesterday, don't go out and rent gallery space or start calling publishers. It's just DA fixing something that was a screw up in the first place. If you want to read DA's official article, here it is!
