As for the exclusive features... Does the bot do those, or do you put those up?

I do them by hand currently.  I have plans to automate the features but I have not had time to implement it yet

Ah, okay. I was just a tad confused/concerned when it didn't automatically update there like I'm used to for other things. ^^;

You're bot is busted everytime I type "Newest" Into the comment it tell me that I'm inactive. I'm not inactive, I post art, comment on other user's accounts, join groups, fave and watch users.

Question: My profile is complete, and I am active. I don't understand why I'm flagged as inactive
Answer: To earn points for watch/fav/llamas you must meet the activity requirements.  This restriction does not apply to donors or users in the referral network.  Please note the activity requirements are separate and distinct from the eligibility requirements.  For the activity requirements, your activity level is compared against other active users - if your long term activity level is too low you will be considered inactive.  If you are told you do not meet the activity requirements, you must interact with other users outside of dAhub to boost your activity level.  This includes commenting on artwork, joining groups, watching users, posting artwork, faving work, etc.

Question: what is the minimum amount of deviations, comments, critiques, forum posts and favourites needed to earn points?  why my activity is too low?  It says I don't meet the activity requirements to earn points, but I've used dAhub just fine before.
Answer: The activity filter looks at nearly all the information presented on a user's profile page but focuses on changes over the past few weeks.  The algorithm compares each metric against the typical activity of common active users and computes a cumulative score for the given user.  If a user ranks too low on this scale, they are considered inactive.  There is no fixed minimum quantity of activity for comments, deviations, etc, just a cumulative total (a deficiency in the number of deviations posted recently could be rectified by posting more comments, for example).

This profile has historically faced a large number of fake accounts requesting points.  Users earn points with their home account and then turn around and attempt to earn points with alternate accounts, old accounts (eg abandoned in order to change the username), plz accounts, point accounts, role play accounts, etc.  The activity filter has been put in place to remove these accounts from the service.  By removing these accounts, donors are assured that the accounts giving watch/fav/llamas are of at least a standard caliber, and that activity is not 'fake'.  By ensuring a minimum quality to this service, donors are more likely to donate, ensuring points continue to be distributed among real users.

I apologize to those who are flagged by this requirement and are frustrated by this rule.  I recognize it is an imperfect process, and I sympathize with those who ultimately forgo receiving points because other users have abused the system, but this is a necessary measure given the conditions this account operates under.

Question: Do I need to make my recent activity public to be considered active?
Answer: Whether you have your recent activity is set as public or private will not affect the activity level assessment.
