[dA update] deviantART Groups FUBAR Big Time!GeneralTate and I will be doing a PSEC Video about this as soon as we can align for that, with full screen shots and everything. This journal right now, is just to give you guys a heads up on some changes that have been made within the deviantART website interface, just in case you have not encountered them yet.
Hopefully what we've seen so far is nothing more than a temporary bad idea that the staff will change its mind about (kind of like that temporary horrible new navigation bar that thankfully they regained some sense of sanity about and killed that before it became a problem, for those of you who remember it), but as it stands I would like to voice my observations and my opinions on them.
There have thus far been two sets of changes. One set has in my opinion been good, the other set is a disaster waiting to happen.
The first set is the changes that seem to have been made to the gallery view / edit system for personal deviantART Profiles The way the new thumbnails show more
A message to deviantARTI deeply apologize for this, because of several mistakes that I made in this journal I had to do a set of corrections.
Spread this review; highlight it in your journal entries, conferences, organizations, everywhere you can. Deviantart needs to enforce etiquette policy or this site will collapse! This must reach the front page for everyone to view it and spread it. DA team must listen to us!
I refuse to tolerate your double standards that you're performing it because; I'm annoyed about the rebrand. I'm annoyed about your direction, your lack of focus in key areas and your lack of communication. This community uses to be terrific. There were days when you could report a pedophile on this site and you were 100% sure the pedophile or pedophile protector will be banned. After comprehensive changes that you did, this community has started dying, pedophiles, cyber bullies, trolls, spammers, youthful deviants, R34 art; pedophile protectors like Ach-TheNUTS are unmercifully
[dA update] The CORE IssuesSometimes when complaints are made regarding what CORE is and how it is maintained, those whom are unaware of the full spectrum of things, assume that these complaints are from ungrateful users who just want free hand outs. You know, like Obama supporters (sorry, couldn't resist taking the shot hehehe). However, in most cases, this is not what is going on. There are some genuine grievances about the newest incarnation of the deviantART system, and they are pretty frickin' valid.
I am going to share with you one journal made about this, which I largely (though not completely) agree with. There are also many very good supporting comments in response to this journal as well. Though this journal may not represent the 100% full story of all that has gone on, it does represent a good chunk of what has people pissed off and disheartened. I also added in my own two cents in reply as well.
Please read this journal with an open mind.
[dA update] Its About Fucking Time!
If you look to the BOTTOM of your deviantART Message Center, you will see the Give One, Get One deal. They didn't have it AT ALL last year and though Give One, Get One is slightly more challenging at the new insultingly higher prices of subscription membership aka Whore ... I mean ... Core ... it is very nice to see that enough people pitched a bitch that they brought this deal back! Maybe their minds are opening a bit more. Maybe they've been feeling profit losses from their apathetic mistakes. Maybe now, they might listen to us. I mean, I'm still not going to hold my breath on anything. I'm not going to expect $50 to go back down to $30 where it belongs. However, even with no expectations of this -- my mind is now wondering if more positive results with the deviantART Staff are finally possible. I don't have to believe in it, to be open to it. And none of us need to believe in it nor expect it, to be able to insist upon it and demand i
