Viewbotting/hacking/cheating is when somebody somehow exploits the views of a piq, to gain views or ranks. Usually viewbotters will have unlikely high views per each like they receive). The average amount of views per each like is 30-50.

Many piq users have viewbotted at some point, so i wont be 'exposing' who have done so mildly or unsuccessfully, rather I will be exposing users who have viewbotted the most, or have very suspicious statistics regarding their view counts.

These 2 things will be stated:

Rank:
Like to view ratio* [based on a single viewbotted piq]
*approx


Confirmed viewbotters (major ones):

Smuz (r 444) (l:v 1:1333)

ginny2670 (r 46) (l:v 0:67000)

minecraft art (unactivated) (l:v 1:4200)

Hazmat Gamer (r1271) (l:v 1:1000ish)

LWH123 (views removed)

Unconfirmed, however there is evidence beyond reasonable doubt)

MrBrowns (r 39) (evidence:
http://piq.codeus.net/picture/34560/master_ball
http://piq.codeus.net/picture/34600/reddit_mail_logo
http://piq.codeus.net/picture/38683/luigi
http://piq.codeus.net/picture/38772/mario_ice_flower )

phillipv (r92) (evidence:http://piq.codeus.net/picture/161127/raiden )

ZoiKiKu (r 1217) (evidence: http: //piq.codeus.net/picture/22771/hamster_ )

TheDoctor33 (r 789) (evidence:http://piq.codeus.net/gallery/?user=3640&order=views )



Now, I dont think any of these people should be banned, or even 'punished', but I think the views should definitely be removed by the mods.

Please suggest any possible viewbotters to be added

dude I never viewhacked. stop serading false information about me. you have no evidence that I view hacked. you your self said you have no evidence to pikahttp://piq.codeus.net/picture/414745/conspiracy_theories_everyone_smart_read_

jank I don't dislike you or want to have beef with you but please stop spreading false information about me.
by LWH123, 14 June 2017 18:01
your piqs were viewhacked, I dont care about whether you did it or not, your account had illegitimate views.

The information is truth.
by Jankovic123, 14 June 2017 18:05
ok then thanks
by LWH123, 14 June 2017 18:06
and dont you find it odd, that an account with your ip, would waste his own time, boosting your rank? reloading constantly, to boost your rank, not his own.... I certainly find it odd.
by Jankovic123, 14 June 2017 18:12
yes I do find it odd. but I cant read peoples minds. so I don't really know why anyone would do that.
by LWH123, 14 June 2017 18:25
evidence beyond reasonable doubt is the word. Evidence is in my favour, therefor I am correct.
by Jankovic123, 14 June 2017 18:38
whatever you say bro
by LWH123, 14 June 2017 18:42
For a lot of the ones ive seen that have a lot of views are mostly because of google searches. For example: With ginny's rainbow cupcake piq, its the first result when you search "rainbow cupcake pixel art" in google. MrBrowns master ball one is the same situation.

I honestly think views shouldnt be counted towards your rank or whatever it is that you have on piq. Same as the number of piqs you create. It just allows people to abuse that. Though as I said, its a problem that cant be helped unless they do decide to change the way views and number of piqs created affect ranking.
by Kairi Lon, 14 June 2017 18:43
views should be counted less imo, but we know they arent from google searches, because you need to be logged in via activated account to cause the view to go through, otherwise its not counted.

And yes, the number of piqs should not contribute towards points whatsoever.

and the likeliness that 6000 people searched for rainbow cupcate pixel art is unlikely, actually on google trends it says there are too fews to even count.

by Jankovic123, 14 June 2017 18:48
I thought that the views increased regardless of having an account or not. I wouldn't know how to explain the majority of the piqs that have the most likes on this site then since a lot of them are simple Minecraft stuff. Maybe there is a possible weird view glitch but thats a long shot.
by Kairi Lon, 14 June 2017 18:53
many of the site users are young regardless, so the minecraft thing makes sense, unactivated accounts dont contribute to rank (just ask LWH).
by Jankovic123, 14 June 2017 18:57
When I would go on my phone to check my pics i noticed that me (having not been on a registered account at the time) does actually contribute to the piq view number

views are counted by anyone that looks at them, so some of these people may not be botting
by Kidkinobi, 14 June 2017 19:20
And Im not sure that classifying people as hackers by looking at Likes:Views is accurate. Majority of my most viewed piqs are at 1:1000ish, and Ive never botted, nor do I even know how I would
by Kidkinobi, 14 June 2017 19:26
I know that, but the views dont go towards the rank, the views may be shown, but the site dont count them, and I based the 1:30-50 thing of the average I was given a while back, still holds true.

Truth be told I dont know how some of your piqs have so many views, but it is very weird that you have so many views.
by Jankovic123, 14 June 2017 19:29
other users on this site average 1:40 really, but it varies, I think your piq have lots of views because they are branched from the site's biggest collab tho .
by Jankovic123, 14 June 2017 19:30
Ah, I do believe I made a mistake Jankovic about unregistered views and rank

Even though I am proud to have made that original collab piq I honestly thing I get most of my views from google searches. I think my nerdiness attracts other nerds

especially for oddball characters that I pixelize, I notice my pictures are higher up on search trends. Sometimes Im lucky enough to make a good pic or I happen to post one at a time of high interest
by Kidkinobi, 14 June 2017 19:42
Oh and I forgot that I was featured a number of times by some celebrities, Insomniac Games, and I think Hasbro's Transformers a couple of times

that may have affected my numbers a bit
by Kidkinobi, 14 June 2017 19:47
wait, featured by those? when where?
by Jankovic123, 14 June 2017 20:22
Mostly on twitter
My PS4 Spiderman pic got featured by Insomniac
The actor that plays Ghost rider On Agents of shield
The actor from Luke Cage
and most of my transformers pics have been to promote the new movie
by Kidkinobi, 14 June 2017 20:27
