I designed my own version of DeviantART Eclipse.

Why Deviantart has become such a mess.I simply cannot call it any different. Deviantart is a mess! For many reasons, but I've always wondered why it went so wrong in any aspects. What went wrong? When? And how? I have never seen so many users on a site complaining or negative comments about it. Many users that have been here for years know that Deviantart has changed massively during this last period. It went wrong before already. To me, it started when Wix took over the company of Deviantart.
This bugs me for months already. But I've been holding in..As I see many others making journals and statements , I have to let my opinion be heard too! We users that have supported Deviantart over the years are THEIR backbone after all! Without us, they wouldn't exist in the first place!
Things have been bad for a pretty long time! That didn't happen suddenly.
Change doesn't always help, sometimes is backfires right back at you. With a new logo and such , they thought of a brand new fresh start. And I'm Santa Claus :>. This
An Eclipse PetitionThis probably won't do any good, but I'm going to try it anyway; so gather ’round, everyone! Let's let our voices be heard! Please share this journal with others. Comment here to "sign". Don't comment a bunch times, and don't tag any of the developers yet. After this journal gets enough comments, I'll try to tag as many site developers as I can in a single comment asking them to read and consider this. I know people are probably already doing things like this, but the more people speak up, the better chance we have at actually being heard.
So my petition this: that we keep both Eclipse and the original DeviantArt. It's a very simple solution that will make everyone happy. Those who like Eclipse may use Eclipse, and those who like the "old" DeviantArt may use the old DeviantArt. In fact, Eclipse can be the default, with the old layout being an option that must be turned on by individual users. It's obviously something the devs are capable of, given how that is pretty much the way
