I’m no web developer, but it would seem that there would be a simple line of code that could randomize your followers and the members you follow?
There was but they removed it, slows down the database or whatever somehow. So it’s kinda stuck this way ;)

That’s right… I could have sworn it was randomized at some point. Well, I guess you’ll always have people taking advantage of the system wherever they can!

Somehow I missed this thread but great that you brought this thing up Esko! It’s really annoying and comical (in a sad way) to see the followers feature misused like that.

I just took a look at the top authors follower lists and I guess that the same guys are still taking advantage of that feature because after 22 days they are still in the first places. I assume that those guys get one or more followers in 22 days so we should see some new faces there…

This might be a good time to create a new badge for those who follow the most:

Pitiless self advertiser and Marketplace celebrity stalker

I’m sorry if I insulted someone (actually I’m not, you can ban me if you want :D) I can happily say that I have never taken advantage of that system even though Esko told me about it some time ago. I buy my ad space from BuySellAds or use social media to promote my files and services and I don’t offend anyone by using their websites or profiles for my own good. :)

That’s how it’s done man. Thumbs up for that. This practice had stopped for a while but seems like the it is back right where it left. Okey, have your views. You are swapping a fair game for a few clickthroughs? Let me know how that’s working out for you.

Hm, that’s really funny… But what the problem?... Why all that so intolerant painful reaction, guys?... In fact I don’t fill any inflammation from such ‘sophisticated’ parasitism on my page… Just pretty naive, IMHO … All that ‘following / unfollowing’ story seems rather amusing… BTW I ’m ‘following’ mostly girls… just for their promotion and also getting my page nicer with some beautiful lady’s avatars… Like my Muses… Anyway, you may continue to enjoy ‘following / unfollowing’ my page, Miseld, and whoever else, if it helps you anyhow… Though… better spend your ‘parasitic’ time for making a new ‘epic’ AE project… ;)
