In this day and age 800+ is a darn good number.   With so many changes going on in the 3D world we held our own.

That's good... seems to me I saw over 4,000 visitors for 2018 Halloween... But I can't see the count anymore... so maybe I'm remembering wrong.  Good to see "we're holding our own."  Maybe we can advertise on DeviantArt more during the month too?  Not sure if anyone has thought of that... and ShareCG?  Anywhere to get the word out.  May even be able to sneak a word in to the Daz forum Freebie thread.... (fingers crossed)

yes 800+ is a wonderful number 50 would have been crappy. There were more last year but then last year  I had more forums to go shouting about it....many closed down.

I have RO and Daz forums with posts about it when we are gathering (although now RO won't allow that just allows telling them when it is on). There used to be a lot of forums Illusions Designs now has store only with no forum, Thorne's forum is gone too unless they have it back again those are just 2 that I can think of right now.
I know it was over 1000 but then by the time it was over the counter pooped out, had to go with a different counter this year.

Such a shame many forums are gone.  I guess we gotta do everything we can to keep FA and PFDLives thriving.  I'm trying to do my part... good lord willing :) 

I posted my freebie backgrounds from last year on my DA page.  I'll post other places too... just to maybe get peeps looking ;)

Anywhere you can post images or fourms, remember to tell folks to spread the word, our Annual Christmas gift Page will start December 1. That gets the word out too

I don't know what browser your are using, but with Firefox (and Waterfox) you can do right click, then select "view page info". Between the possibilities, goes in Media tab. And the image of moment representing the counter must be there. It's the only way for myself to see it too, but I guess it's because I haven't flash installed on comp.

I know the advertising was made several times on Deviantart on that page
https://www.deviantart.com/fantasiesrealmmarket
and the group too https://www.deviantart.com/thefantasyrealms
Myself I left a word for the monthly journal entry I do.
The word was said also on Daz, and Hivewire. I didn't look but I suspect it was said also on Rendo. (oups reading after that Mary's did it).

I think it was around 3000 we had for last Halloween.

What I do also when I have a freebie for Halloween or Christmas which is posted during a day of the event, is to put the render promo I made for the freebie in places like Deviantart or Twitter, and give the link toward the page where it's available. I try also to share the render in several groups, for more people see it on DA.

Anywhere you can post images or fourms, remember to tell folks to spread the word, our Annual Christmas gift Page will start December 1. That gets the word out too
I missed the link for the Christmas page. Can you give it here please Mary? :ty:
