For the record, this isn't me complaining, I'm just really confused and want some answers.
Some of you may have noticed that my latest flash, ET Excursion 4, was featured for a week.
I had worked on it for about a year, and in fact posted it on the same exact day I posted my prior flash last year. It had a very tough run to begin with, spending a whole 18 hours under judgement and as a result it was considered ineligible for the daily top 5, which was like a punch in the gut.
After a rough start and a whole day of trouble wrestling the video quality, ET Excursion 4 was featured for about a week.
So I ask: why did it only get 11k views and 25 reviews by the end of its run? In my experience, that's really meager for a featured short. The last thing I posted got upwards of 32k views and twice as many reviews, and it was only about half as good. Sure ET Excursion 4 got featured, a high score, and weekly fifth but when you spend about a year on something you expect to get more feedback at least.
Maybe someone can provide some kind of reason why most people didn't even give it a chance before clicking on it? Was the choice of title, icon, or summary boring-looking? What can I do about this for the future to prevent this from happening again?
