Core (Update)Okay XD Well I bet everyone will read this wrong so I'll update it with this right here so please don't get anything too out of portion... Okay so this is more for the outrageous money increases and the art thief stuff... who cares about the ugly glitchy as fuck logos... we'll get used to them like always XD Also I'm pretty pissed about the "no notice" part... they didn't even have the decency to tell us first or when thy updated... Also this COULD be a hack or even an update mistake (something in development that got posted on accident considering no notice). But I really don't understand why everyone in this world has to be money hungry? Why can't we just not have it and just trade things for the stuff we need...
DA ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS ABOUT THIS!!! No notice, no nothing, just BAM! You give us the most HUMILIATING UPDATE IN THE HISTORY OF DA!!! (as of the time I've know it for... other than the "Socializing DA" Stuff)
Okay so over night they decided to up prices $20... YOU'R
This is an outrageous!DeviantArt has gotten an update! But not a good one!
Deviantart today has gotten a update today but not a good one! We now have a new feature called "Core"
About Core:Core is a newly updated version of the "Premium" membership with a new icon plus a horrible new color that doesn't go well with DA's main color scheme.This update also DOUBLE the price of Premium memberships making it MORE expensive and harder to get for people that earn money off here to get premium! We still get the features like the old premium membership just more expensive with a new icon and color.
This is a rip off on people who work hard to make points to get this! There is nothing truly "special" about this Core update other than money increase for DA! They already deduct money from commissions you make but now they want more money for premium memberships and this WILL NOT settle! Let your opinion be heard by DA! Let
if you're serious about boycotting, read this.EDIT2: at the end of the journal i explained why this is such an issue. it has nothing to do with the new logo design or name change.
EDIT: en español. gracias jongninix !!!
some of you just think not buying a membership will be enough. it's not. premum membership is insignificant when compared to the other ways this site makes money, just boycotting the membership will not be enough.
Ryan Ford, staff member on deviantart, explains how the site makes its money.
"Having worked there, its top-line item is advertising. Things like banner ads make the majority of the cash since the page impression count is so high. Contests and other "branded integrations" do make a lot, too, because the community is so niche and focused. Other items they sell, like premium memberships, products, llama badges, etc, are practically insignificant by comparison.

URGENT : POSSIBLE CORE MEMBERSHIP FIX
don't buy premium and #boycottcorememberships
don't buy premium
don't buy premium
don't buy premium
The new symbols are the least of my concerns, tbh.
But now i can't afford premium after putting hours of effort, and love into coding my page.
Deviantart is leeching money from hard working artists and no one is doing anything about it, if you don't buy the now 50$ premium memberships things may go back to the way they were !!!
If you can't afford premium you will lose MORE than just your page coding, this is important for the deviantart community
