Okay, guys... I don't know if it's just me that has noticed this god-awful trend here on dA, but what's up with the 100-point giveaways on the front page of popular journals lately?

They all go something like this:

Rules:
- Add me to your watch list to be aware of future giveaways;
- Add this journal to your +fav list :) (Smile)
- Write a journal about this giveaway (Optional).
And the best part? They all average for 200 comments at the end of their life span.

So, what's wrong with this, you may ask? Well. We are talking about TWO HUNDRED PEOPLE BEGGING FOR ONE FUCKING DIGITAL DOLLAR NOT REDEEMABLE OUTSIDE OF DEVIANTART. ONE. FUCKING. DOLLAR.

Did I say that loud enough? One dollar. That's what 100 points are roughly worth.
And what do those people who hold these giveaways get for one dollar?
Let me show you by quoting rule nr. 1:

- Add me to your watch list to be aware of future giveaways
Really, dA? Are we going to enable that kind of shitty exploits? Are we really going to give these people exposure they don't deserve and otherwise wouldn't get if they didn't dangle ONE FUCKING DIGITAL DOLLAR at your faces?


You know what? This is stupid.

And what will I do about it? I'll hold my own fucking 100-point giveaway. Yeah, you heard me. I'll give you one fucking digital dollar. But wait, the deal gets better! I'll give you a fucking dollar on PayPal! See? A dollar you can spend towards something else than dA shi-I mean merchandise!

The only rule is as follows:

If you +fave and comment on this journal, you are in on the random.org drawing of ONE dollar, in your choice of points or PayPal transfer. You can comment and opt-out if you feel like you don't deserve the shining dollar that I am offering.
You are also allowed to share this journal so OTHERS can see that I am offering A DOLLAR to you. This step is optional.

 
 
So, go out and make this journal as popular as you want. I just want an end to this shit.

-Dots out.

Please note that this is actually a legit giveaway. The dollar will be spent.

I never said I had to anounce the winner. I picked one and tossed 100 points at them. Let's hope they noticed.

Haha, that's hilarious. I think points are so popular these days
because they can get you a one way ticket to premium membership
or maybe just blow it all on daHub to get "popular" But I'll give it a shot. :)
