DA suggestion: anti giveaway miscats.I would like to suggest that purposefully posting giveaways in the literature fiction prose and fiction poetry sections is manipulating the deviantART front page system to get onto the front page easier, at the expense of an already under-represented frustrated literature community.DA suggestion: anti giveaway miscats.2 years ago in Written Suggestions More Like This
Giveaways are not art, therefore do not belong in a literary art gallery.
I will report these as miscats when I see them and post to tell the poster that I believe they have put it in the wrong section, but I would like to suggest that repeated offenders be banned for what is essentially manipulating the DeviantART system for personal gain.
I did not suggest a Giveaways gallery under DeviantART related because I feel that it would be unfair for skinners and coders for example to suffer because of these deviations which should be journals.

Paid Name ChangesDear deviantArt Staff,Paid Name Changes3 years ago in Written Suggestions More Like This
I've been virgino0owhore for nine years. While I understand I can just create a new account if I want a new name, I feel that this is a waste. I would have to move every piece of work over to this new account, re-favorite over 3,000 favorites and rewatch my current watch list. It's simply not worth it all because of 14 letters.
Not to mention, I lead a club against name wasting, making getting a new account hypocritical. It seems more practical to allow members to pay to change their name. This prevents the wasting of names that can't be removed because they have history on them. It also gives deviantArt a new revenue source.
Naturally you couldn't choose a taken name but, the act of paying for a name change is common in internet society and amongst gaming communities as well. The price varies but is usually around 15 U.S. dollars, and whatever that may translate into.
