It gives you confidence, as people are actually stopping by to look at your art. But I don't think you can judge peoples' art by it - it's just a feature that makes dA fun - to an extent.

They are okay, but they shouldn't be placed before artwork. =]

i don't care about pageviews. people with more pageviews aren't god ~_~ it's just that people think the more popular you are the better at drawing you are.. but i dont think of it this way.. I think people shouldn't take the pageviews so seriously @_@ it's just how many people came to your page that's all.

I don't mind pageviews. I mean, I'm not an egotist whose art production depends solely on how many views I get. I mean, it feels good when people look at my art, but they don't mean as much to me.

That's why I voted, "They're okay".

I just think they're way over-rated. Then again, a lot of online communities have similar silly things. When I was part of "The Lounge", a whole bunch of us were racing to be the first person to have 1,000 posts. On "Nanowrimo.org" everyone compares word counts-- but then again, that's legitimate since the whole POINT of that is to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. But the big difference between The Lounge and Nanowrimo and DA is that on the Lounge and Nanowrimo, your stats weren't seen as popularity or as a mark of status like they are here. I find it annoying the way people here seem to take something as silly as pageviews so seriously. Come on, even on Nanowrimo people act more light-hearted about word counts, and your word count is an actual achievement and something you have control over.

...Heh, if you couldn't tell, I'm VERY biased in favor of Nanowrimo.

I like my stuff being looked at, so I think page views help me figure that at lest they came to look.

I came here to meet other people and share comments with them. Input on making my artwork better is also a plus.
