Q. What made you make the software?
Ans: I have seen people going crazy over pageview scams and whatnots, 'Hey, he is cheating!', and other accusations. I just wanted them to see how many other statistics were there to worry about.

Q. You say you have used complex mathematical tools to arrive at the answer. Could you tell us more about it?
Ans. Of course! The following formula has been used to calculate the index:
index = squareroot{[ (0.5*num_of_deviation_views + 0.1*num_of_pageviews) + (0.5*num_of_comments_given + num_of_comments_received) + (0.5*num_of_friends + num_of_watchers) + (num_of_favs_received + 0.25*num_of_favs_given) + num_of_forum_posts ] / num_of_days_on_dA}

Q. I believe the formula is skewed and/or its too simple.
Ans: In case you do, please leave a comment and we can work out a more effective and complex formula.

Q. I want to use it on my Linux/Mac machine!
Ans: Sorry. The program works only on Windows, that too with .NET 3.5 and above installed. Ask someone to get the score for you. If you can't and/or won't, then just leave a comment and I'll get you your score.

Q. Should this be taken seriously?
Ans: If you must. I'm not going to pay for any kind of bills that you may work up due to use of this software, not for the psychiatrist and definitely not for parties.

Q. I think I might just have found a bug.
Ans: Of course you did! This is just a beta release of the program, so bugs might crop up!

Q. Isn't it too extreme to be sarcastic?
Ans: Well, I've been known to go overboard with my emotions.

Q. Hey mate, isn't this FAQ too long?
Ans: I guess it is. So, this is the last one, I swear.

Don't take it seriously. Its not about the stats, its more about the community.

Thanks to =Shirei-Shou, ~Chibinu, and all others for their bug reports!

EDIT: I go out of town for a couple of days and this happens! A Daily Deviation! Thanks to ^namenotrequired and `Gwendolyn12 for suggesting it and `WDWParksGal for featuring it!

dA Popularity Index Calculator by ~SiNg0d
CATEGORY: deviantART Related / Devious Fun / Miscellaneous
The suggester states, "dA Popularity Index Calculator by ~SiNg0d is a fun parody on how some people treat their own statistics and those of others.
Remember, as ~SiNg0d says, it's not about the stats but about the community. Empty stats don't speak volumes."
Also recommended by `Gwendolyn12 who says, "This is pure win!" ( Suggested by namenotrequired and Featured by WDWParksGal )

This weeks site update (removing support for IE8) broke the app. The server is detecting the browser or inet control, whichever you used, as being IE8 or earlier.

If you dig a little, you should be able to replace the default user-agent header with one that won't cause the server to hang up.
