For the past two days I've been trying to come up with an idea about how the site's layout update should be. Suggestions regarding the Core members' benefits:  Core members should have the ability to customize their background image or colors.  The number of Custom boxes should be 20 instead of 10 for Core Members. Access to all of the widgets that already existed in this site. Core members being able to change their username every 3 months. Suggestions regarding the NON-Core members' benefits: Non-Core members should have the ability to change the colors of their backgrounds. Non-Core memebers should be given the right to have

Dear Reader

I have become spread thinly across the web and must apologise for my own shockingly low rate of response to comments and keeping up with those I watch.  I'm finding the Deviant Art layout overly fussy and submitting pieces unnecessarily complicated (and my god - please revise those categories!).  The mobile layouts are still fairly dire.  Also non-DA users struggle to navigate around galleries when I send them links.  I'm guessing I don't help my using too many widget-gadgets on my profile page. So, I'm guilty of adding to this clutter. ;)  I'm also baffled by how the DA community functions - just getting to the forums is a mystery to me and the competitions are too large, the prizes meaningless.  I hate live chat and shout-boxes.  Paying cash out from shop profits is virtually impossible unless it's dividable by pie, mmm pie, and yet I'm paying for the privilege of having a DA premium membership (for the moment).  Vanity publishing is cheaper elsewhere, no really, it is.  Nonetheless - DA is a font of creativity and a majority of the accounts post only their own unique creations, so in that way it is still superior to the steal, share and reblog nature of social networking sites, but man, it could be better!

Anyhow, I am well.  The day job, working at a couple of mental health drop-ins, hasn't killed me yet, I'm selling quite a few dungeon sections, taking the odd map commission and I decided that it was time to update my journal.  But rather than list everything I'm doing on the web and in the Real World, you can come and visit me by following the links below. ;)

I'm surprised you find it fussy as they've done a lot to de-clutter it in the last few years (particularly noticeable on deviation pages). I suppose it depends what exactly you're talking about.

I'm also baffled by how the DA community functions - just getting to the forums is a mystery to me and the competitions are too large, the prizes meaningless.
Groups solves most of that I think. I agree about the official contests which is why the smaller ones are better.

Here are a few you might like. :shrug:
