Leaving Da for good. (Decision on hold )

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 15, 2016, 4:33 AM

I'm not going to sugar coat it for you. 
After several years of being on DA, i have finally decided to leave for good. 
I have been on the fence for a few years after the feedback crash and the total bull-shittery that became the customer support service here . 
After discovering that DA now apparently owns any artwork we submit, and our name (be it user name or professional names) and IPs and can do whatever they fuck they want with it, (which legally they should not be allowed to do but there we go) then my choice has been well and truly made for me. 

If you are still interested in my work and still want to see my content, you can find me on tumblr, or youtube,…

This really hard for me to do because i'm not comfortable with terminal decisions but hey, got to make them sometimes. 
I would recommend you keep an eye on the terms and conditions of any site, especially the popular ones and make your own choice on whether you want to stay or not. 
Leave my account up for a few days but it will be closed by the weekend. 
Again, if you still want to see my stuff, please feel free to follow me on tumblr. 


Right this is getting put on hold until i can clarify WTF is actually going on because there's mixed reports everywhere. Needless to say i am still clearing everything out until this confusion gets cleared up. 
Sorry for the changes guys...I'm about as confused as you are at this point. Especially after having been gone for 2 years. :I 
If someone could help me clear up what the truth is, i'd greatly appreciate it! 


Right after having spent all day going through their terms and conditions (which i must say is complete and utter gibberish to me) I'm going to delay my decision to leave or not. I should have decided by this weekend what i am doing. While i have been on here almost 10 years now and it will be sad to leave, I don't what to be dealing with a case of the very host i'm using stealing my work. And while according to their terms I still own total ownership over it, it's still unsettling because none of it is particularly clear. I want to come back on here and rebuild but if this truly whats things are like now then there's no point.
