Deviantart is more
I deleted it, There is no point in having a request that you already lost.
It's about the basic functionality of this site that's flat out missing.
If Eclipse goes through, I won't be able to talk to people properly. I can't format my comments or use plz-icons or smilies properly without jumping through a dozen hoops that render that unusable. I can't even preview my comments, because "what you see is what you get and there's nothing you can add to it".
I can't even look at the 3000+ conversations I've had with people in the past 13 years in my inbox, because "infinite scroll" has replaced the "page"-buttons. Infinite scroll only makes sense on mobile, if you want to "quickly check your latest messages" and don't care about the rest. But I do.
I've spent 13 years on this site putting effort into my replies to people.
Because I've already been "famous" before elsewhere.
1.6 million views on a Youtube video may not seem much today. But it was in 2007/2009.
"September 22nd '08: #98 - Top Rated (All Time) - Entertainment - Germany"
"February 8th '09: #96 - Top Rated (All Time) - Entertainment - Germany"
I'd already gotten flooded with "omg lol so cool" 08/15 comments and know that it isn't about the numbers, it's about the community. And to stand out among a crowd in somebody else's inbox? You gotta be more creative than "omg lol".
I learned that, just as I got started on this site. I put effort into my comments. On the days I don't have the time to work on my art or my stories, I write deviantArt comments as a creative outlet. I see these comments as part of my art. Maybe not all of them, but a lot of them. Maybe not the type of art I'd put up in a museum for others to marvel at, but the type I'd put in a photo album to frequently revisit, and occasionally share parts of with others.
I started posting on Youtube around the same time I started posting on deviantArt, 13 years ago.
And even though I got more attention on Youtube than I ever received on deviantArt, I feel more at home here.
Here, I have a sense of community. Sadly, I never quite got that on Youtube. In part that's my own shortcoming. But mainly? I blame Youtube's terrible comments- and inbox-system that's only gotten worse over the years and made interacting with people in any meaningful way a chore.
"Regular" deviantArt literally has the single best inbox / comments system I have seen anywhere on the entire internet in 20 years.
Eclipse does not.
I judge other social media sites by how well they can reproduce deviantArt's inbox- and comments-functionality. DeviantArt shouldn't imitate other social media sites, they should be imitating deviantArt.
Eclipse won't let me be creative. On a site for artists.
And a movement
The Sound Of Silence - DA StatementSo Eclipse is Coming
SEE MY LATEST JOURNAL ON THIS HERE:
I'd like to organize a proactive event to show DA the possible results of a permanent Eclipse change-over. Instead of deactivating your accounts for good, or indefinitely boycotting the site, I'd like to make a Statement of Silence for those Users against Eclipse. Starting May 1st, I will not be active on Deviantart. I will not submit new deviations, journals or even visit the site for 3 Days time. From 12:00AM CST May 1st to 12:00am May 4th. (3 days) I ask all other Users who wish to keep old Deviantart to join me in this statement of silence.
Not Only Is Eclipse Difficult to Navigate, It is so close to Plagiarism it isnt funny. How they aren't in a Lawsuit with Artstation is beyond me!
Look at these site comparisons!
