Newest Deviations

I think I left this place without a proper explanation on why I consider this site not appealing anymore, hell, not cool anymore and a failure already compared to other similar sites I've moved into.
I think from a guy who's been more than 7 years here and that has seen the numerous "improvements" and from an advertiser perspective which I am I can provide some feedback to some (I hope) administrator that someday will pass by this journal entry.


     KEEP IT SIMPLE. The site is well built, but it lacks simplicity, and that is something that everyone looks forward, specially the people who joins the community for the first time. I know DA likes to provide a lot of features and "fun shenanigans" to us the users, but it all ends up in a soup of randomness. Take for example the other art community "pixiv", even being japanese with most of the info in that language it's easy to create and account, upload your stuff and fav your favourite works. You have a profile page, your works, your favs, your main pic, a little bit of your info AND THAT'S IT. There are no friking llamas, journal entries, statistics, skins, and all that stuff. It's plain simple, you ulpoad your stuff, get favs and comments, and the other way around. Also, I know this have to do with the branding, but that main green/grey color of yours is totally depressing, you should change it to something maybe blue or white, it'll look more simple.


     STOP NOTIFICATIONS. I know you like to let us know about all the great stuff and improvements on the site, but it feels like spam. I belive you can change stuff without letting us know, we're going to notice belive me. But getting notifications everyday about minor bug fix and stuff like that is annoying. I want to open my message centre and see favs and comments not 20% on tshirts and updates about a bug fix.


  • CONTESTS ARE POINTLESS. Once in a while I notice you like to organize art contests, specially about games or movies releases (yeah we totally not realize you're getting pay for marketing purposes). And no one gets benefit but the top 3 winners who by the way are always pros, and submitting a winner entry for them is like doing not much, meanwhile we have thousands of hopeful enthusiasts artist who break their back doing their best and they get nowhere. Who gets benefit? just DA, who charges another check for the service.LACK OF GOOD ARTWORKS. For every good piece of artwork I found on this site, there are 1000 badly drawn sonic the hedgehog and my little pony doodles. Seriously, sometimes I open the featured most popular works of the day and I can't belive all the crap I see, sorry to say that but it's true. Seems we have a legion of 14 year old kids who login on this site tovote for that rubbish. If I go to pixiv all I see is amazing stuff everywhere, it's incredible.

I always think this place is going to go down eventually, unless they stop the stuff that I mentioned before. I leave this journal entry so maybe someday some admin will understand why I left this place and think about it.
adios.

Hi there! I'm scouting around for fresh faces to join a group I run along with some friends of mine called #ChristmasCalender and I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining?

Basically what the group does is that a member chooses a day in December when they want to upload a christmassy deviation, and then they upload it when that day comes around. At the end of December we hold a raffle where you can win prizes donated by generous contributors.

So are you interested? If you are, you can read more about it here: christmascalender.deviantart.c…
