I think it looks really sleek and modern, and I think that really does a lot for looking professional.@Zombie-Kawakami:I uploaded a cover image obviously so that is a new thing that I also like ‘cause let’s be honest, old DeviantArt pages kinda looked really bad.@mynameistran: I like it. It's very me... You know, like really just a simple, minimal design.@MidnightXCross:I feel like it would be good if they added more variety to the Custom box — more ways to customize it and make it your own.@Firefly-Path: Oh wow. I like how dark it is... It's kind of dark and mysterious.@YellowNinja123: Hey, that’s pretty good.@TaitRochelle: I like it. I think it will be positive for DeviantArt. I think it will help DeviantArt grow as a website.@arvalis: Videos can play right in the comment! I don’t have to open anything. It’s great.

I get that you don't like the new update and that you have your reasons, but I find the eclipse is my style. This is closer and better to how I wanted to be able to do my profile layout. Though the notifications is bit bothersome now with it's layout. But I'm adaptin'. But one thing I don't like is that there's no search function fo r the gallery's in ECLIPSE. Rather annoying' when tryin' ta find specific things in a deviants gallery.
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
