Popular results for Browse

Tue Jan 24, 2012, 5:00 PM by Heidi:iconheidi:


:bulletblue:  Something for Everyone


The deviantART community is incredibly deep and diverse.  Every day, amazing art is produced that appeals to all tastes.  Our goal in sharing and exposing the deviations in deviantART's Popular section is to showcase this depth and diversity as convincingly and fairly as we can.


:bulletblue:  Fair Exposure


DeviantART's algorithm for Popular browse results is known as Fair Exposure.  The goal is to maximize the display of the most popular deviations in a variety of topics (styles/genres/art forms).  Fair Exposure increases the probability that someone will see something that they personally like in Popular results.  In short, with Fair Exposure, the community is exposed to a varied cross-section of deviantART.  It uses an algorithm that is "fair" in nature -- meaning not biased toward any topic, yet still based on popularity.


:bulletblue:  Why is Fair Exposure needed?


Ranking deviations based on raw popularity alone is something that deviantART hasn't done since 2008.  While using raw numbers has some benefits, it also has many problems.  One major issue is that it inherently favors the already popular -- making that which is popular more likely to be seen, gaining even more popularity.  

Different styles and types of art appeal to different deviants, and those deviants use the Favourites system in different ways.  For example, fan art enthusiasts are more likely to Favourite a deviation based on subject, whereas, fine art photography lovers are more likely to Favourite based on technique.  Thus, comparing the number of Favourites on one type of a deviation to another is like comparing apples to oranges.  

Fair Exposure's task is to strike a balance between showcasing depth (i.e. deviations that are popular with many individual deviants) and breadth (i.e. deviations that are popular with a wide variety of deviantART sub-communities).  We do this with an algorithm, the components of which are adjusted from time to time to produce an inherently fair outcome in terms of art that would be of interest to the broadest spectrum of deviants.


:bulletblue:  Fair Exposure 1.0, 2.0, and 2.1


Version 1.0 of Fair Exposure was launched in February 2008, and the next set of updates (2.0) came in December 2011.  Fair Exposure 1.0's computation became slower and slower with every deviation added to deviantART.  While it executed in a reasonable amount of time in 2008, it was no longer updating fast enough for the front page.  However, Fair Exposure 2.0's computation was structured differently and was faster.

While Fair Exposure 2.0 had been in development for quite a while, some of our more sophisticated ideas weren't able to make it into the initial release.  The changes in Fair Exposure 2.1, made in January 2012, are very minor -- mostly code reorganization, and a few bug fixes that addressed rare edge cases that sometimes influenced front page results.  We know this new version of Fair Exposure is a better representation of the world-class art produced by the deviantART community.    

We have a variety of improvements coming down the pipeline -- in particular, improvements having to do with topic "accuracy" (i.e. becoming better at detecting the topics of a deviation) and "popularity" (i.e. detecting whether a deviation is "popular" amongst a niche group or has broader appeal).    

Fair Exposure 2.1 is not inherently more "random" than Fair Exposure 1.0 was. The most significant determinate of order is still in deviants' submission/viewing/Favouriting patterns in general.  Similarly, all determinations of popularity are made by looking at the data, with no artificial fudge factors biasing towards one topic or away from another.  In particular, it does not replace art from a "popular" deviant (or topic) with art from a randomly-selected "unpopular" deviant.  Fair Exposure 2.1 explicitly attempts to select "popular" deviations that showcase as many "popular" topics as possible, whereas, in Fair Exposure 1.0, there was no explicit goal to showcase a wide variety of topics.   This does mean that if, for example, a deviation that showcases "people" and "photography" is displayed, the next several deviations are unlikely to be other "people" or "photography" deviations, unless they are also extremely popular.


:bulletblue:  Sharing the Love


Changes to Fair Exposure and Popular browse are in the interest of highlighting the best from a wide range of deviants and showcasing an array of styles and genres. Keep in mind that you can always browse by your particular interest using the category tree or join a group that matches your interests. We're a large community, and with Fair Exposure 2.1, we hope to bring more deviants into the spotlight.

If you want "Fair Exposure" then create a Fair Exposure filter and return what's most popular back to most popular. 

It's not fair to ME when I submit a great painting that I've practice hard to achieve, obtain over 300 favorites and get ranked below someone that has only 6.

How is that fair?

How is that "still based on popularity"??

"Fair exposure" fails to reward effort, study, improvement, dedication, loyalty dA, activity in the community. This new system gives away the "exposure" and reduces the overall quality. Do not talk about popularity, call it lottery.
The "exposure" is achieved with effort and is now frowned upon, even penalized.
Let the new generations follow the steps that veterans have traveled. Support them but not at the expense of others.
I hope you to return the traditional dA "exposure".

This algorithm should be called "Unfair Exposure" because certainly there's nothing fair about it. This algorithm screws up the whole idea behind browsing the "most popular" deviations. Please be smart (and fair) and fix this mess.

I understand the thought behind this concept, and I agree with your reasoning. I just don't agree with how it's being done. Let the popular artists stay popular, since they've earned it. They've spent a lot of time and dedication to their work, and many are paid for their passion because of their dedication. If now they are mingled with the "unpopular," it's likely their work and pay will fade away, along with their passion. Yes, I know what it's like to be an unpopular artist (I still am) and hope for some exposure, but this is being done in the wrong way. Those who are popular are popular for good reason, and they are likely the reason other users keep coming back to dA. Make them unknown and traffic here will slowly fade. 

Meanwhile, us unpopular artists have the Undiscovered page which is a great invention, but it should be given attention second to most popular. We who are unpopular also have "random deviant," "Newest," among other ways to be known. What do the popular artists have? "Most Popular" that is now no longer showing the most popular artwork?

If everyone's popular, no one is.

I understand the idea behind the system, but this just isn't working. The ordering of deviations in the "popular x hours" categories does not follow any ordering that any sane person could come up with as anything that would reasonably correspond to the word "popular". There is absolutely no perceivable logic to deviations with fewer views, favorites, and downloads ranking systematically (i.e. for extended periods of time) above deviations with more of these. If DeviantArt insists on having more randomness so as to increase visibility for certain artists that would otherwise not be seen, then just add randomness and stop calling the category "most popular". Or come up with a reasonable algorithm, that at least respects psychometric dominance relations (i.e., if a deviation has more of everything, it should rank above a deviation that has less of everything). This does not live up to the standard I have come to expect from this site.

I understand why you guys thought this was a good idea, however I do not believe that this system is fair. Now that undiscovered is here, use that for the unknown artist. You are punishing hardworking artist with that new system.
I do not find it fair that I worked extremely hard to gain watchers and people who like my art, but now because of this “fair” system, I’m not popular enough to override it, but I’m too popular to get a boost from the system. This leaves me unable to grow. After months of not being active on DA because of college, I’ve found it quite difficult to find new watchers since my old watchers have gotten used to my not posting. Now, when I upload something, even if I have 100 favorites in 1 hour, my art will appear on the 2nd page of its category while the first page is filled with things that have less than 30 favorites. I find this incredibly unfair. It takes away the ability of the artist to reach a new constituency and I find that highly unfair.
You’ve continued to give me the same answer each time. That is why I turned my ticket into a different section. I was tired of being handled by someone who was being condescending to my worries. The fair exposure system was introduced in 2013, and I never had those issues. This only began in the past few weeks. I would like it if you would actually look into why I’m getting shafted by the system.

've been having this issue for a while. Anytime I upload my drawings don't show up on the browsing page. I let the help desk know and the same guy keeps marking my tickets as solved and talking down to me. I just want to know why my pieces don't show up based on number of favorites anymore.
In this particular case, I'm showing up but my piece has been unfairly pushed down even though it's doing much better than the one that is placed in the first position. This does not happen to other deviants.

I'm starting to feel as though someone is trolling me on this website. Is this some kind of joke? This isn't fair.

I'm confused about the results of the search. Were there any changes made recently? Because I don't get the logic behind the results.

I was looking for "Popular All Time" deviations. A deviation from 2008 with Comments: 36 // Favourites: 382 // Views: 10,565 is ranked higher than for example one that was posted in 2010 with Comments: 309 // Favourites: 829 // Views: 12,121.

Why?

HelpDesk answer: "The main gallery of deviantART has for sometime now been showing you a special browsing mode. This new browsing feature is called "Fair Exposure"...

I asked again: "I'm sorry, but that doesn't answer my question. There have to be some changes within the last week. I noticed it - and others did too. You might have a look at the forum. There's a thread about this subject.
I noticed it, because several of my deviations and some of my friend's were listed on the first result page. From one day to the next, some have vanished completely while others dropped down at least 10 or more places. We did not have any sudden activities. Neither of us got suddenly lots of comments or favs. We always used the same keywords for the search.

And again: How can a deviation that got more comments and more favs and more views be more popular than one that's two years older with less comments+favs+views? I point back to my original question. I you think it helps I can send you a screenshot of the old resultes compared to the ones I get now.
Also the results of the search jumped back between the old and the new constellation several times in the last few days. That means to me that there either is a bug somewhere or something was changed."

Help Desk: "Fair exposure is constantly evolving dependant on popular deviations. I assure you nothing has 'changed' in the way this works it is just making way for other deviations to be considered as popular. "


Sorry guys. This is stupid. You either have no idea what you're talking about or you think a lot of users here are blind or stupid.
When I read the comments here, a lot of people are everything but satisfied!

A good friend messaged me the other day, thrilled beyond belief because she'd spotted some of my writing on the first page of the "Most Popular of All Time" for the Literature section. (Clearly, I have lovely friends.) It's cool, yes, but I had suspicions because that one piece of mine really hadn't gotten much (comparatively) in the way of views, comments, or favorites.

So I did some searching and arrived here. After reading this article, I'm not sure whether I should be sad because my being featured on the first page is the result of an artificial equation spitting out my relatively unpopular work to diversify the Popular page.

Do I actually have anything to brag about? Do I have to tell my friend "sorry, but I'm not actually awesome, dA just needs me for the sake of 'Fair Exposure'"? I'm confused, especially about how this applies to the Literature sections.

Because of this system, every time a picture of a girls half exposed ass/breasts gets 13k views by all the guys who find that amusing, I'm forced to scroll past at least 10 every time I dig among the supposed "top works" submitted over the last few hours/days.

I barely ever find something I like in the first few 10s of deviations..

^ I like this person. Personally, the main (and often only) reason that I search terms in the DeviantArt search section, is to find top professional quality art for inspiration, and so that I can learn from their techniques.

With this new "Fair Exposure" implemented on all of the search options, not only is it hard to find top professional quality deviations, but sometimes I have pages of deviations that are all by the same artist who has done several deviations of one particular character (for example when I search for the term "Wolf Warrior"). This would be fine if I liked their stuff and I was looking in their gallery, but I had to look through about 3+ pages before most of their stuff disappeared. Apart from anything, I don't think showing 3 pages of one persons work is very fair anyway.

Now finding high quality deviations using specific terms (like "Wolf Warrior") is very hard, and I am having to find my inspiration from elsewhere. It would be great if the Fair Exposure could be separated from the Popular so people can browse as they choose.

Very very bad move. In order to appeal to the pre-teens, youve disenfranchised your core content creators. The new algorithm is chaos, as an art-appreciator I can no longer seek out the best of the month for my visual research.

There's nothing wrong with meritocratic ratings, if people desire more exposure - they should simply improve technique and networking like the rest of us did.

How does giving each category a more even exposure "appeal to preteens"? It's going to cut down on homogenization and monopolization of the front page by popular content such as anime or other fanart. I'd say that's a slant /away/ from preteens.

"they should simply improve technique and networking like the rest of us did."

You're not taking into account that some categories naturally get less attention than others. It's an uphill battle.

I asked how the popularity of deviations was determined and don't feel that any effort was made to answer my question. The "answer" given above sounds like an add for you new algorithm as opposed to an explanation of how deviations are chosen. Some of the searches that prompted my queery were specific (e.g. searching pin up in Traditional -> paintings -> people), while others were general (e.g. not using a search, just going Traditional -> paintings -> people, and seeing what popped up). Not only did I see pieces in the first few pages that were, in my opinion, sub-standard, but when I crunched numbers, it appeared that the dA community agreed with my assesment. I found one painting that had been on line for about 5 years, had 97 views, and 1 fave. This piece was in the first few pages of a search for which there were tens of thousands of results. Many (dozens) of similiar examples were found. While art is a highly subjective thing, I don't think many would argue that all works of art are equal in quality. I rarely use the dA search because I always feel like I'm wasting my time. I understand that you want exposure for all of the deviants on your site, but there are way too many rank amateurs (sometimes very rank) whose work is shown well before the work of established professionals whose deviations have far better numbers. It's not a matter of stroking the egos of the more popular artists on dA as much as it is paying respect to those who have earned their popularity by demonstrating artistic skills developed through years of intensive study. In spite of the advertisement above, I feel that your new search algorithm leaves a lot to be desired.

Just to clarify -- Fair Exposure affects browse results, not search results.

Unlike Fair Exposure, the dA search algorithm must consider both "popularity" and "relevance" to the search query. This can lead to deviations that are less "popular" but more "relevant" appearing earlier in search results than deviations that are more "popular" but less "relevant". That said, the dA search algorithm has not been changed recently, nor is it affected by the recent Fair Exposure improvements discussed in this journal.

Thanks for the response. I appreciate the attempt, but as a math dork, I'm still not satisfied. I asked how popularity is determined and have so far received an email directing me to this page, and now a comment response, neither of which has explained HOW popular is defined. I would understand the math, if you would give it, but I have so far only received responses that tell me that you use popularity and relevance without ever defining either one. I did a search today, going traditional -> painting -> people, and searched pin up. Because of the HUGE popularity of one deviant, who had 64 pieces in the first 2 pages (120 deviations), I was only left with 56 others to examine the numbers on. Of those, at least 10 had fewer than 1000 views per year, and 2 had fewer than 100. Because some people don't join groups, I also checked the percent of views that result in faves, and found 3 pieces with a fave rate less than 1%, and 12 with a fave rate less than 2%. These were in the first 2 pages and are low numbers, and yet they meet your algorithms definition of popularity. I will understand the math if you throw it at me. Please, either ignore my question (and I'll stop bugging you about it), or answer my question - with an actual answer: How do you define popular??? While I appreciate that you responded,I know nothing more about how popularity is determined than I did before my inquiry.

I don't know if this is correct, but I think 'popularity' would be determined by recent page views, comments or favourites. Maybe even a combination.

as for why the numbers were so small for deviations on the first two pages, you are looking at 120 deviations as opposed to someone like me who would only see around 48. I am aware that does not fully explain why the numbers are so low, i am sure there would be SOME reason.

Actually, just to make things clear, did you enter a search term or did you choose a category? because if you have entered a search term then popularity may not cause deviations to display at the front. instead, relevance to search query will take priority.

I saw really good artists and they dont even bother to active in DA but because they are really good, slowly their art will be appreciated.

Short answer:

Many clients use DA as a search engine to seek out talent for undertaking projects. With the search results screwed, the artists with the ability to fulfill the brief are not being presented as they should.

For those of us that produce bespoke art for a living, little things like this are a big deal. Yes, there is the intrinsic joy of creation, however DA is often used as a tool for acquiring work.

If this makes me self-centered and snobbish, then so be it ;)

I second this, I had a deviation on Saturday that got enough favs to be on the first page of it's subcategory, but it was not there, and seems to have disappeared completely when trying to browse for it.
In this case my deviation is this [link] should appear in Fan Art/Cartoons & Comics/Digital/Movies & TV but when I browse for it today, I don't find it at all (set to 1 week, 1 month, or all time).

This is despite that the Site Update journal says its "fixed".
I see that browsing in specific subcategories is much more ordered today than it was, but still deviations seem to be vanishing completely from it.

After looking into your report a bit more, we found a bug that could prevent deviations from being considered by Fair Exposure if they were initially uploaded to Sta.sh, and only a "long time" later published to dA. If this sounds like it applies to your deviation, then a fix should be coming soon.

Thanks again for the report!

I have recently noticed, that the further down the gallery tree you move, the more "random" and non-comprehensible.

I am talking about the Most Popular of All Time browsing in some galleries. If i browse Digital Art > Typography I notice nothing off the usual. But as soon as I reach the end of the gallery tree it becomes awkward Digital Art > Typography > Calligraphy the fifth deviation is a miscat with one comment and 16 views.

There seem to be a lot of issues with the algorithm, when it has no sub-catgories to sort the deviations by.

As far as I can see, this principle gives a lot more exposure to miscats.
Probably because people tag a Photography as such, but upload it to a Digital Art gallery. As I understand it, and you're welcome to prove me wrong, if something is in Typography and tagged as something else f.e. Photography, it would move up in the line of deviations to be shown further on top? Because it differs from deviations tagged with Typography? That kinda sucks :B

I hope you iron out the bugs :)
