I need feedback on this. Since I assume heavy traffic might be an issue for my website if I posted all stocks there, would you rather have me... 

45%
203 deviants said Post them here on my dA account
42%
190 deviants said Post them here on a stock account (NOTE: it wouldn't be ro-stock because the credits will have to link to my dA or my website)
13%
58 deviants said I don't use stock/ I don't have an opinion/ Whatever/ Other... (just post a comment in any case)

145 deviants vs 143. Seems to be split pretty evenly.

yeah. I'll go with a separate account though. I hate it when people use my art for tags then go like "oh, I thought it was stock like that other image you had there" >.>

cel mai eftin este sa posstezi aici...adica sa faci un alt cont de stoker. insa sa numi zici ca tiai luat host in ro. de la vreo firma din ro. nu am nimic cu ei, sunt hostiguri la preturi f rezonabile ce iti dau trafic si spatiu nelimitat plus o multime de optiuni ca si suport. daca vrei trimite'mi un note si-ti dau o adresa faina.(nu postez aici). iar daca vrei sa cumperi domeniu pe ro ii stiu per cei ce au pret f bun.

I suggest starting a new account for your stock. Its fine when it is just 10 images, but after a while you get more and more uploaded, and it changes your traffic, scews your stats, and your stock gets compared to your art. If you have a separate account for your stock, you can make it a smiliar name to your current (if you wish), add them as a collection to your page, and link like hell. But it is an obvious line separating your art and your resources. However, I do agree with ~ArtistInProgress about the issues with not accessing a second account as often.

I've had to do this for both my stock and my stamps/wallpapers because they were changing the feel of my gallery. I was also getting so many favourites for my stamps that I felt it was detracting from my photography. Its up to you in the end, but I reccomend starting a separate account specifically for stock :blowkiss:

There are pros and cons to both. If you're not online often to check a stock account, it might be easier to post it on your main account. That said, if you want your art account to just be art and look clean, a stock account could come in handy.

If they (the stocks) are not free, then you should be able to enhance the bandwidth of your site a little without having to spend any additional funds of your own.

If they (the stocks) can't pay for that bandwidth, then just put 'em here on deviantART someplace.
