Ok, so I'm trying this experiment. Long story short, there's a HUGE disparity in pageviews on art websites like Flickr and Deviantart between men and women. Some men will have amazing art, but only have a few hundred pageviews, where any random camwhore can post a few pictures of themselves showing a little cleavage, and get thousands of thousands of pageviews.

So I'm making an experiment of sorts to point this out. I've got an account on Deviantart, which has my correct information (IE-that I'm male). However, I'm going to make an account on Flickr claiming to be a female. Then I'll post the exact same things I've posted on Deviantart, and see exactly how long it takes for the Flickr pageviews to catch up with/pass the DeviantArt ones. Now, in order to pull this off I'm going to need a user picture and a few other pictures of "myself" to put up first before submitting any art.

That's where you come in ladies. I need one of the cuter girls on here to donate two or three pictures that will make me look like a camwhore.

Thanks in advance.
Thus sayeth the Lord.

Well, on one hand, this sounds like an interesting experiment.

On the other hand, it also kind of sounds like you just want girls to send you slutty pics

Wouldn't it also depend on how many people visit the site...

Perv. We all know what you want


Yeah you caught me. I'm too lazy to do a google search for porn, so instead I hatched an elaborate scheme to get girls to give me a few non-nude pictures of themselves.

I would've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you pesky kids!

ooh, nice. i'd like to know what the results are at the end.

try getting a girl that you know to donate a picture, after you've explained it. i think that women on the internet will pass you off as a creepy pedophile.

You know what, I'll find a picture of some slutty girl that I don't like on myspace and give it to you, as long as it's not against the rules.

Why don't you just google non-nude pics?
ok, yeah. my name is silly because I signed up when I was 13.

Wow, what an elaborate set-up...

You obviously just want cute pictures of girls on here

If not, you would've just found any random pictures yourself, which is really no less creepy.

Fairly flawed experiment.

And I seriously doubt anyone will participate.


Good luck dude...

Yeah. I find girls I don't know on the internet to be MUCH more attractive than other girls I don't know on the internet.

The experiment makes enough sense.

Good luck getting those pics, though.....

yeah... I think flickr has more hits as a whole is the main problem... and that you're not going to get any pictures of cute girls here... or girls... or pictures at all... or really anything but an LOL WUT pair or ITS A TRAP alien dude from star wars for that matter. hahaha good luck. ps- you're probably right, those dirty dirty camsleuts

if you're anything like me though, you can think of 20 camsluuts off the top of your head that you're friends with on facebook, and that take nothing put pictures of them and their friends in the bathrooms of clubs posing like pirate hookers.... so it shouldn't be hard to dig up a few pics.

^^ Yeah but I can always do a quick comparison based on overall website hits. Pretty simple math.

The experiment isn't accurate. Because how do you know that the flickr page and the deviant art page have the same chance of being viewed? It's horribly biased toward whichever site is more popular (I have no clue which one that is.) Maybe if you made two accounts on the same site.

Not really. If I make a ratio of the user traffic to each page I can compare it to the ratio of pageviews I get on the two pages and then figure out the disparity.

Oh yeah, I didn't think of that. Not to keep insisting my point and argue and stuff, but also be careful that both sites have about the same percent of guys and girls viewing them, cause that could mess with your results too.

I'll participate
I'd like to see how this sexist issue goes
therefore, I'll want links to the deviantart pages
But, I'll have to find a pic, and put it up, wich on dial up, isnt the quickest

I won't.

just something to capture attention to see if we have sexism on our hands

I kind of accidentally did this experiment. I have a flickr account, and when I found this out a year or so ago, most of my photos of just friends and stuff had between 3-6 views (not surprisingly, photos that I'd taken at gigs had more views, as I'm diligent with the tagging so people can find them). However, I had one photo of myself which had 425 views (which was even more than my band shots at that time). The reason was, it was a photo of me in a strapless dress taken from the shoulders up, which made me look naked, and I had a laugh and of course titled the photo 'Naked'. I can only imagine that Flickr is full of desperate perves.

If it helps at all, I don't think you're a perve. I can understand why you'd rather have the picture of someone you can stay in contact with than a picture of a random person from the internet (who it might turn out is fairly famous. You never know.)

I am the only person who noticed the "cuter" remark? Are you implying that UG has ugly girls as well?
