Hey guys I know change is always an unwelcome thing when it comes to website updates. I know many of you have been dreading the impending Eclipse update to DA.
What you guys need to try is the classic green color theme. Since its release I have found no need to ever return to the clunky old site. You can turn it on here under your username menu drop down.
I know change is something that's easy to fear. I know there is a lot of fear mongering related to this. Many, many complaints about lack of functionality I have seen are because people just didn't try looking where the feature should be instead of where they were awkwardly shoved into the old UI.
So much of the old DA is really cumbersome and awkward to use compared to other sites in 2020. DA is a 20 year old site and it really felt like it. Eclipse does not feel like that, it feels intuitive but you are probably just too used to the weird navigation quirks from yesteryear. I promise you, if you spend a little time with it and

I just recently created a new group with the aim of collecting artwork from all artistic mediums that give you that immediate sense of a mood, an ambiance, an atmosphere. This could include nostalgic, dreamy, dark, romantic, soft, sweet, eerie atmospheres and much more!
Definition of atmosphere:
"The pervading tone or mood of a place, situation, or creative work."
I'd love for you guys to join or watch the group! I created it 2 weeks ago but there was a weird DA glitch where I couldn't edit the group page for a while, it's been fixed now, so we're officially in business! :)
Will be trying
