Gold from Germany V
Long time no see! :)
In a big community like deviantart people are overwhelmed by the extremely high amount of works submitted every day. Today I am here to support the Germans.
If you think one or the other artist in here is missing, feel free to link me to his gallery. I will gladly check it out and eventually include one of his works in my next article.
Thanks for stopping by and don't miss our group:

Group Abuse: Killing our Communities
Groups! What a great feature on deviantART. They kicked off last year and have been a huge success. Nothing but good has come from the groups system – or has it? I can tell you that right now – under the layer of hype lies a deep, dark problem that's slowly killing our communities, unknown artists, and our ART. I'm going to tell you my own story, then explain.
I'm the founder of a large photography group here on deviantART. We've been using the groups system since the very first day they officially released. At the time of this writing, we have almost 3600 members. We've grown rapidly to become one of the largest and most successful photography groups around. As a founder, it's always interesting to see how your group is doing. It's a lot of fun to look at statistics, new members, submissions, and comments. Until now.
We had an excellent discussion in our group chat debating the following issues. Together, we came up with these issues and decided to raise them to the communit

v7 and its problems
You may have noticed that dA released an update of the site last night. The announcement is viewable here:
At the time I'm writing this, there were 3823 people who loved it and, more important, "2098 devious rejections". Now, why are there so many rejections? Obviously, there are some major flaws in there which make it unenjoyable experience, contradictory to the intention of the designers.
About two weeks ago, I had the chance to beta-test v7 myself, so it is not like the very first day I've spent with this design. I found bugs/not-so-nicely-designed things during that time, saw the respective threads in the beta-discussion-forum and thought this will be fixed until the release. Yes, I thought. Alas, the suggestions seemed like they have been ignored all the way through.
So, let's get started:
The navigation-bar: Smashing deviations, "normal" messages, and group-messages together is probably the worst idea there is. Everybody th
