The site was a lot more active when I joined up (2010).
More people going to other people's profiles.
So people accumelated more views in a shorter amount of time.
Well, people could still find a drawing of yours, get interested in the rest of your work and check out your profile I guess...
I sometimes find rather cool work and want to see the rest of a artist's work.
Sometimes the person hadn't visited the sites in months or even years...
