So youre asking yourself as to how some members of #GoldenLlamaClub have that many llamas? Wonder now more. Heres how they did it.
They use a macro-creation and automation software utility which allows users to automate repetitive tasks. A good example of this is AutoHotKey, but there are lots of other softwares like this one, some free, others not.
What this software can do is to basically use keyboard shortcuts like, say, Ctrl+a to launch a program, do a mouse click on a specific spot(once you set the x-y co ordinates) on your screen and even run loops once youve written the proper command for it.
So how will this give you llamas? Heres what they do. You must set your hotkeys such that they do the following actions.
Open a window using the random deviant link (which is this: www.deviantart.com/random/deviant )
Left click on the give button
Left click on the give a llama badge option
Left click on the give button
Set your hotkeys to do this, and press them over and over again to give random deviants badges. You can distribute a LOT in a matter of minutes. And as those deviants with 10000+ badges have shown us, youll be getting a LOT of badges back from the active accounts youll be randomly giving to. :thumb169236628:
Heres a link to prove that it really works: [link]
And now youre probably wondering how to write those commands such that youll be giving llamas using hotkeys instead of going on peoples page individually and clicking and waiting. There I cannot help you, but Im sure some members of #GoldenLlamaClub will be glad to help you(the programs have their own 'help' which might be enough for you as well). If youre a llama whore, this unscrupuous method is for you.
Why should you do this?
Well if youre spending hours asking for llamas, posting messages at 2 minute intervals in chatrooms or I dont know what, well deviantART is an art site, dont waste your time doing that. Itll take more than months for you to get 10000+ badges. Spend your time more wisely. Take some minutes off your llama trading and fully understand what Ive just written above and you might save MONTHS.
Of course, it relies on people giving back llamas, so you should keep on doing that.
Why shouldnt you do this?
Llama badges started off as a community before some deviants decided to take it to another dimension. Some now view llama badges as badges of stupidity, whereby people lost days and months just to acquire those 20x27 pixel images.
And yes, this is why dead accounts, and even plz accounts at times have a badge. Even if you might only receive back around 22% of those youve given, the sheer amount you can give using this method will make it such that youll be receiving like, thousands back. And that in a very small amount of time compared to what youve been doing so far.
There you go, now you know how some people have so many.
Just as a side note. The fastest ever method is using ~llamatrade. But you need points, in thousands for that.
Now that you know it all, the golden llama is within your reach if you want one.
