    I find this kind of comment is becoming more damaging for legitimate content than not. You could quickly see that this isn't the typical list-article-spam, and is actual content not just something slapped together to drive clicks.

    Sure, there's a level of nuance in seeing the difference I guess, but I wouldn't call this a voting ring. This is just normal ol OC

      when i made the comment it had 0 comments and like 10 upvotes, that's a voting ring.

      it's also a classic case of an agency creating content in order to drive traffic to their site, rather than a designer creating content for the sake of that content.

      depends what kind of place you want DN to be, but imo that's not it.

        You can assume everything is done for the sake of traffic. But the reality is, even though it is quite nice to feel appreciated by the community, the kind of traffic we want is from prospects, more than fellow designers. And DN won't get us that. Believe it or not, it was actually an altruistic giveaway, both this one and the Handbook ;)

          and yet the person sharing this content and interacting with designers is the business development manager

            Yes, I am. But I was the one designing the icons too, that’s why I am the one sharing them.

        Take what you can get I guess, this forums gone to shit anyway. Better than the numerous png aggregation duplicate sites, three-year out-of-date "trend" lists, or blog spam that's trying to come across overly academic for the sake of padding out word counts.
