deviantART Loves You by akreon deviantART Loves You by akreon
Don't get me wrong, I don't hate deviantArt. If that was the case I would be long gone. I enjoy art which is uploaded on deviantart everyday and it's friendly community.
What irks me is the way this website is managed. For every thing that is being improved two are being terribly fucked up.

Just read one of the most recent dA articles, if you haven't already about 1000 search limit. --> [link] <--

Cool eh? For millions of art uploaded to dA under every given tag you can now view only 1000. What with the less popular deviants? How can we find their work if they don't manage to get to the first 1k? And good luck with finding a print or a stock image.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-03-01
In the first few hours deviantART Loves You by *akreon was uploaded I received more suggestions for it to be featured than any other piece, and the suggestions have been coming frequently ever since. Even without knowing that you can see from the comments how much support this deviation has received and how many people share the same views and concerns. It's important to note that those with these views, the artist included, still enjoy deviantART and it's for that reason many feel so strongly.
It's drawn with elements of humour and the the artist really has a knack for great expressions.
Suggested by many, many people. ( Featured by kangel )

Lol man it's been so long since you made this artistic comment on everything wrong with deviantART. 8 Years. What has really changed since then?

Guess they fixed the search thing, at least it displays 1000 pictures now. Oh yeah, and recently they added jpg compression to their website. Great. Just what we "needed" :I on an art website.
Meanwhile art theft is still rampant. Man. I'm glad I never gave money to this hellsite, I swear.

Anyway, 8 years later th expressions are still amazing and the comic is a joy to read.

Pointless though some of these features may seem, they make the site a lot of money. Points are convenient for buying stuff in small increments. You don't have to make a separate credit card or Paypal transaction each time you buy something that only costs one or two dollars. Badges may seem pointless to a lot of users but some users are willing to spend a lot of money on them. I have seen users spend hundreds of dollars buying their way to 100,000 llamas. That might seem silly to most of you, but these people financially supported DeviantArt, and I like what they did. I did not care about badges or points for most of my time on this site (I had another account before this one that was active for more than five years before I decided to close it down. I did not plan on coming back, but I decided to be more careful about what I do on this account.). However, I have developed a fondness for them now, and I have gained a lot more watchers than I ever had on my old account, thanks in part to all the llamas I am now giving out. And no, I did not give you one; you are clear that you do not want them and that is fine.

I've definitely had the most of problems with them too. I can't believe that a site, that was well- respected in the past, is now a joke and a mockery.

If Deviantart is the "scum of the art world," then what is "better"?

I like this site, but if I become professional, then I'm going to seldom use DA, as it's a cash-grab that doesn't allow lewd stuff EVEN UNDER A STRICT 18+ FILTER. I'm going to use it until I become decent and I will always use it to view art, but I'm using it as an artist only for a while.

rayedragon Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2015
So true. But I still like deviantart. You did a great job, but I'm really surprised you got a DD, no offense. As in, I'm surprised deviantart gave a rant about themselves a DD.

Jakeukalane Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well, points are useful, and llamas too. Thanks to that "stupid-thing" like you said I have a premium account and I requested almost almost a half hundred of commissions...

I have a "naive" question.
I haven't been in dA for quite a while and I am trying to come back.
However, I haven't received any feedback of any kind and keep receiving "llamas". What are they?
What do they even mean when it comes to giving feedback to your work?

Jakeukalane Featured By Owner Edited Jan 13, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
is like a standard digital "adward" per se it have no value. Llamas are useful in the sense that in llamatrade you can give them for points. Points are not very usefull in low cuantities but they are money although digital. In the past I gave llamas to the people I think that have great gallery; now I give them if someone have gave me one before, I prefer to give feedback and comments and favs, than a llama that is like nothing, but sometimes I give to a people that I can't allow myself to watch (because I already watch too many people) and after seeing his/her gallery and comment/fav I gave that in order to show my support. But of course everybody takes llamas in a different way, so is not a universal behaviour. Also, could lead to a more exposure of your work, but I don't like to have that only giving llamas (I have seen out there though).

This is really good, and you've made valid points. The DD was much well deserved.
ApalrieusCentauri Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2014  Student General Artist
 I totally agree, dA shoves random stuff like badges and points in our face to make the experience tedious and ridiculously competitive. I also don't like the fact that some of the features are only available for premium members. Some are terribly basic, for example multiple favourite deviation widgets which are only available for premium people. 
Squid-kid-Sam Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I don't think anything is wrong with DA infact I happen to enjoy it.
