Update: (12/31/12)

After reading the comments for my last journal, I have thought about it, and decided to award the Kiriban to the person who sent it first, via DA note. I decided to do this primarily because if people keep refreshing the page, and manage to catch the Kiriban at the right moment, that would simply be too many characters to draw. Theoretically as many as 20 people could catch it. So to avoid this issue for future Kiribans, I will just be taking the first note.

Thanks everyone for your input!

So the winner for the 80,000 Kiriban is :iconhexalyse:! Congratulations!

Don't know what a kiriban is? It's when you catch the pageview number which is announced (you then make a screenshot and upload it to a free database like photobucket or send it as an attachment via email).

My first Kiriban will be at 60,000 pageviews!!! Watch out for it!


The Prize will be a Colored Chibi (character of your choice!!! I will always make the prize a colored chibi so I can make a gallery folder full of chibis!

Either a bug, either they visited your page at the exact same time or one of them is photoshopped

Don't need to visit at the exact same time actually, as explained before in the comments ;). It comes from the way DA counts the pageviews and can happen for a lot of people during a long span of time, if they already visited the page in the same day.

Give it to the person who sent it to you first. That's what I do with mine. I mean, if you don't want to do two.

Hexalyse Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm one of the two then, I guess ^^. So I hope I'm either the first one, or you'll choose another solution (agreement on the subject ? honor both ?)

And I think Khryas is exactly right in his explanation : if you refresh the page X times in the same day, the PV count does NOT increase after the first time. So let's say 4 people keep refreshing the page when it's "one pageview before the kiriban", and only ONE other person comes to your profile. The PV will be increased to the exact kiriban count, and if the 4 other people refresh the page again (and no new visitor comes in between), they'll all see the new PV count, which is the "kiriban". And you got FIVE people seeing the kiriban !
That's the drawback of this system (not good for kiribans), but otherwise people would keep refreshing the page to get pageviews...

Hexalyse Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Actually I think I'm wrong on a little detail : the PV count is increased AFTER your visit, so the one visitor that comes will still see the PV count "one before the kiriban" (I hope I'm clear), but will increase the PV count on the DA servers, so the four other people who were refreshing the page will see the kiriban ! And this "new visitor", will have to refresh the page if he wants to catch it too ! (but in real life, there are always tons of people coming on the page at this time, so he will most likely have missed it because of the time the page takes to reload. And same thing goes for the other 4 people if the deviant doing the kiriban is popular ^^)

This can happen sometimes. I think this is the cause..
When person A visits your page for the first time that day, it will gain you +1 PV. Let's say that person A's visit was at exactly 80,000 PV. BTW the PV count is the total amount of unique views (that means, if the same person goes to your page the 2nd time in the same day, it will still count as 1 PV) that is reset each day. Going on. ^^ Person A screen captures the page at 80k views. However, person B has been refreshing your page for a while. Person B gets lucky and refreshed exactly at when person A had just visited. Person B screenshots the page at 80k PV as well. Therefore, this will result in more than 1 person catching the same page view count.
Do I make any sense..? xD
And I hope I'm right about my speculations D:

This happens to me a lot and usually what i do is that i pick the person who sent me the image of the screenshot first. However if you feel bad for the other person you can always give them a smaller prize (like a mini chibi or a sketch).

It is infact possible, because da doesn't count every refresh right away, so you could really be viewer 80004, but it still show 80000
I'd say give it to whoever sent in first

If you check to see who sent you the picture of the kiriban first (It should say 2 hours ago, 3 min ago, etc. etc.), you can tell who may have caught it first~ The one who sent you the kiriban first will have a message from longer ago. The more recent one caught it second.
Choose the first one~
OR, you could do a kiriban for both people who caught it <3

It happens unfortunately. You can do one of two things: honor both kiribans, or go with the first one to have sent you the image. Honoring both would be fairer, but ultimately it's up to you.

maybe you could get the two winners to come up with an idea together on what they want you to draw, so it could be for both of them. other wise, i guess you should choose the person who sent it to you first.
