    its mental i know....

    im not sure if this has got anything to do with it.
    But my norton picked up some 'attacks' on my pc (doesnt normally happen) while i was surfing CA.org - and according to it they all originated from conceptart.org in 1 way or another.

    Maybe theres something around linkin up to pcs and makin em all connect to ca.org.
    Is there not any way the guys that run the servers etc can find out where its all coming from. surly?

    Maybe this is a good thing though.. except 3000 odd members in FF aint to good.

    well either way it made me smile. we topped cgtalk's all time online record today, which is something I never thought would happen years ago when we were starting out.

    PHAT-3000+ members in the finished section is AWESOME. I hope to someday see those guest numbers viewing our works on a daily basis. We will get there eventually.

    Figured it out, that painting is on digg.com's second page right now. funny considering that the painting was posted over a year ago, still a nice piece though. almost 2000 diggs, CA.org kicks ass

    Deschamps that's awesome... there are over 2,000 people looking at your work right now wanting to give you sweet, tender internet smooches for making their nerd dreams come true. You should edit that post and pop a link to your website nice and big right at the top...

Argh,, you kidding me ? When I went offline tonight, just a few minutes before I closed, lavasoft firewall blocked 56 "intruders" and it all stopped when I closed the browser( CA in all tabs )
......dunno......hope Im wrong, and its all "real guest" but it seems very
odd that sooo many just like that exactly now started to look...

    That's fucking great man. Although I don't post here as much as I should. This site has always been one of my favorite internet stomping grounds. Always where I turn to for inspiration and self loathing

    Keep rocking JM and MB!

    thanks all...its not digg.com that site is not a main stream traffic generator. it is the site which JRR pointed out. It is legit traffic.

    Regardless, that was a huge bunch of traffic and great exposure...still is. Congrats to everyone.

    Just looking at Hedonistica, I can't really imagine that thats where they are coming from rather than Digg.

    it is 100% hedonistica. Trust me there.

    digg has linked us before...we get a couple thousand visits from that site is all. the traffic there is not as high as people seem to think.

    This reminds me of when that deep-sea creature reference photo thread was linked from everywhere and drew in the masses... That was kind of random.
