When I first joined dA, my deviations attracted almost as many comments as favs. As time has gone on, the habit of leaving comments has dropped off considerably. These days I'm lucky to see one comment for twenty favs. So... If you do like a picture enough to add it to your favourites, please also leave a comment so I know what you liked about it.

Is the ability to set a 'private' attribute on thumbnails (as defined in my journal) a good thing?

I am an artist and I would like the option of making thumbnails private.

I am a collector and I support the option of making thumbnails private.

I don't mind either way.
I don't understand, even after reading the journal.

Many of my images include an element of nudity. Fortunately dA has a very liberal policy on nudity and sexually themed deviations. The problem arises when one of my artistic and carefully crafted images appears embedded in (for instance) a collection of crude self-shot close-ups of genitalia. Currently that collection and my image within it would be visible to all. I would like to have an element of control over my work being included in a collection I would rather not be associated with.  I feel so strongly about this issue that, if not resolved, I will have take the only course of action open to me, and remove all my pictures from deviantAR

Thanks, yes I'm OK just not on dA much these days. 

Maybe 2017 is the year to re-engage with the dA community.  ;-)
