A view of the dashboard is attached.

I always dig your design, especially the work you've been doing on Backup. But I'm wondering what you think about how this shot straddles that blurry line between "design" and "advertisement? The dashboard in the full size looks great, btw! But shouldn't _that_ be the shot itself, at least per Dribbble conventions?
(Looking for a conversation, not a fight, I promise!)
Ever wondered why people here routinely post angled shots, skew otherwise boring designs into isometric projections, put them against awesome, but unrelated backgrounds and stuff screens into 3D iPhone frames?
These shots are superficial, they are about decoration, not design, but that seems to do really well on average. Does that mesh well with Dribbble conventions?
Point being is that Dribbble has long ceased to be just a "Twitter for designers". All of my shots that I consider notable and interesting barely get a dozen likes, because they aren't flashy enough. Whether you like it or not, Dribbble's now a instrument of promotion first and the sharing medium second.
But to get back to this particular shot - the efficiency of it as an "advertisement" is zero as Dribbble crowd is a Mac crowd. I posted it here simply because it marks a milestone in my process *and* it involved a fair amount of UI design. If I were to spam Dribbble with ads, you would've gotten one for every weekly release I make.
There - I changed the title from "Introducing referrals" to "Done with the Referrals" - does this help or does it still reads like an ad to you?
