Has anybody else noticed that since the removal of the Who's Online? box views of individual images not on the most recent pages have dropped off to almost zero? I use this box to peruse the works of other known and unknown artists who pop up online, and now I notice that views of my own works have almost stopped since the Who's Online box is gone.

I'm with you, Fergus, I miss it too.  Maybe it was a privacy issue.

I believe unscrupulous people were using false bio entries to link with external non-art websites of various kinds.

Hi Fergus, I found "Who Is Online" under shortcuts when you open Forums page.  Look down on the right bottom corner under Shortcuts.

Well spotted, Sharon. Good exegesis. It will definitely have lost its usefulness in that position, though.

There's definitely a drop-off to almost nothing of 'views' on my uploads since the who Is Online box was removed from the Home Page. No one else has commented so I can't be sure, but I imagine this is limiting Artist Daily's advertisiting exposure as visitors spend less time online.
