1 Point Footer-Hogger Giveaway!

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 15, 2013, 9:29 PM
In an effort to show how dumb giveaway journals are, here's a 1 point giveaway to all interested.

+Fav this journal to enter into a raffle for a whopping 1 point, proving that you CAN buy yourself some free exposure on deviantArt with almost zero effort!

Hah, take THAT all you legitimate showcases, features, and contest announcements! We're all riding the easy train to Arbitrary Pageviews Junction!

Woo woo!

But in all seriousness, knock it off people. We have real news happening all the time on this site. At least disguise your raffle with the guise of something important.

If all the footer becomes is "free points," it becomes pointless.

It would have been hilarious if this journal hit the front page, but alas it didn't =(

Thank you for the points! That was unexpected indeed.

There's a simple solution to all this, just make a deviation that advertises the giveaway. :D

OMG!! Point!!!! A point!!!! :boogie: I do so hope I win. I do I do. It must be a special point, a shiny one? Is it a lucky one?


This almost goes with the "Please give me points" comments I get on my wall, or even get notes about....

I like give away. I use them for a reason to make a journal when I haven't lately, or to give away stuff. Not to get fame, I want people to get excited and share a give away. Not get watched, if I did I would say "Watch me to be added!".

That's a horrid way to view how giveaways are. Giveaways are as much a event as other news. I don't giveaway points for fame; I give them because I want to. I also love the reaction of when a deviant wins and they have a ton of happiness about it. It's a great way for people in the community to have fun and take a chance.

 

Page views mean absolutely nothing, it's just a statistical number of how many people viewed your page. They can be artificial or real.. I don't see why people care about them so much.. It's just a number. :shrug:

 

Since this is your opinion I'll let you have it. But don't be such a downer about it. Look at the bright side about it instead of seeing only a bad side.

 

"If all the footer becomes is "free points," it becomes pointless."

 

I think you should have used a different word other than pointless. :giggle: Technically, it isn't pointless because there is points.

I don't even want the point, I just like the point you are trying to make.

Giving 1 + points over the Journal, I is not going well, it's just a collection of needles in a haystack. Not worth it
I passed a few favored Journal that if, you get 1 point, it never happened, except for one but just exchanging llama for points.

While I agree that doing anything just for pageviews or faves is pretty pointless, I don't really see the harm in giveaways. A raffle is as much of a community event as anything else, and if somebody wants to make a little event just for fun that will make the winner happy, then go for it. It isn't hurting anyone, and I'm not going to automatically assume that the host is doing it just to rake in views.

Yeah, I still don't see much point in faving most journals anyway, or in caring about people faving them, they're ways to communicate information, not things to be collected.

How do you buy publicity with points? I thought all they were good for was premium accounts. And, in days long past, messenger bags and coffee mugs.
