Auto-faving bots?? It's the first time I hear that. What's the point of an auto-faving bot? I don't get it.

Basically they fav the newest deviations automatically. The goal is to get the ppl who go faved to go on theses bot users' pages... Since nice people would then check out their artworks, and return the thanks by faving their work. The worst is when they set up a donation pool on their pages so people who they "faved" would donate to them as a thanks >_<;;

Huh that's twisted. And is that art stolen or does it belong to the person who uses the bot?

Yeah it's so bad >_<; Well the art is original, but usually they're not THAT good...if it really is good then they wouldn't need the bot in order to gain attention =P

Lol, true! Well, one measure you could take would be not faving art just because the artist faved you. Fave it if you honestly like it, that's the point of faving anyways as I see it. A favourite is only a compliment if it's given out of true appreciation an not just politeness (;

Haha yep, I never fav stuff or watch people unless I like their art :D I once saw over like 1,000 favs on a horrible self taken picture by one of these bot users. It was quite shocking D:
