taking brief breakEDIT:
Could someone tell me a real reason why we couldn't put fingerprint scanners on guns like we have on laptops now? Allow two or three saved profiles per gun and if an unauthorized user pulls the trigger, nothing happens. Of course it wouldn't prevent all shootings, but it could at least stop accidental deaths of young children and narrow down the list of suspects in homicide investigations. I would hope there's a legitimate reason why we haven't pursued that basic idea further besides the cost and MUH 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS.
We shouldn't even pretend that anything will change. The only thing the deaths of 20 children and their teachers resulted in was a large spike in sales of the same gun that killed them. Those of you in other countries must wonder what is wrong with us, and I wish I could give you a simple and sensible answer.
Thanks for the kind words and views so far on my latest pic (Fae Problems
). I'd just finished Smacky's Iray materials when I looked over at a plastic plant I have in my living room and thought of a silly idea that would make for a cute little image.
It also made the front page (the top 100 at least, yaay), and in doing so, I think I understand a little more about how the popular rankings might work. For a short time at least, Fae Problems
was the #1 image in it's specific category (Digital Media/Comics/3-Dimensional). I get the impression that the popularity rankings are based on the #1 images in each category, which are then ranked according to their individual statistics and possibly also by the number of applicable images in each category (the competition). Once all of the #1 images have been placed, the #2 images in each category are ranked, and so on. This might explain why a #2 ranked image will appear so far below obscure images with few views; those images that have less views or comments are still ranked #1 in their specific category, and thus will outrank a #2 image that has more popular competition.
Of course this is all a guess too, but now at least I have something slightly tangible to base it on.
I've been trying to thank everyone who faved my Harem Flaeme image...my notifications were down to 71 and now they're back up to 115 because of this new pic, haha. I'll try to get to everyone soon and thank you very much for the support!
I have to make two more characters before I can seriously get back to work on the big fight pic, so I'll try to come up with quick fun pics for them too when their Iray settings are complete. Thanks as always for visiting!
