Just out of curiosity, how did you get the initial influx of participants to start off this project. Obviously you would need a large amount of people all at once for this to be viable, and I would love to hear how you did it, as I face a similar problem with one of my projects as well. I suspect some form of black magic, but perhaps there is another explanation?

I think "initial influx" is a little overstated.  I went around and commented in a few point-related groups that were active at the time.  That got me at least  noticed.  As with pretty much all point accounts, there was a "venture capital" stage and people would donate a handful of points to see what would happen.  I didn't have a minimum donation requirement at the time.  I got a lot of single point donations and the features ended almost before they started.  However, it did demonstrate to donors that the concept did deliver a viable service, and I have been refining the process ever since.

This project doesn't explicitly need a lot of donors.  I was pretty ecstatic once I got about 10 or 20.  I just needed enough so that earners could earn a point or two from completing the actions listed.

I keep on getting deviants who unwatch me shortly after my service has been done. I find it unhelpful that they get to watch and then unwatch me as soon as they get my point.

I usually lose up to 20% of the ones who have watched me shortly after.

Man, Java is a hard language xD
I prefer easier ones like JS & PHP :meow:

Early on I took some classes in Java, so it seems relatively easy to me.  I will say I like PHP's flexible arrays.  It makes it a lot faster to code when I can dump any kind of data into an array and return it from a method, but of course you're sacrificing type-safety when you code that way.
