This site works in mysterious ways

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

I am a newbie so I wouldn't exactly know how this site's audience works. Sometimes some of my work gets lots of views (of which I didn't particularly work hard on) and sometimes some of my work that I really worked hard on gets little to no attention compared to the one I did effortlessly.

Is there a time when I should post my work to be seen easier by more people? I live in Indonesia, so I would post at a time that I think would be appropriate which is at night.

My aim is to rise up the ranks and become a well-known modder. Because I love modding and this community, despite its little flaws. I am working on several different things for Half-Life 2.

    I don't know the stats but I've always assumed something like 7pm EST should be the best time for exposure

    Should go without saying though but obv posting at the right time won't affect the quality of your work.
    If it's actually good, it'll probably get featured. And that's where you get the bulk of your views from.

    Flashy thumbnails help.

    Popularity is a fickle thing. But there are some things you can improve. Thumbnail is one, like Thunderkeil mentioned. In my experience it's having contacts and friends. And to do that, you'll need to submit more high quality content. At first no one would notice. But once they notice you consistently put out good submissions you'll start becoming well known and they'll eventually await your every submission...
