The reason for Eclipse
I've just spoken to someone and the important reason that the Deviantart Classic has to go and here's what he or she told me.
"Aside from that, if they were to throw away 3 or possibly more years of development and quite a lot of money sank into it, and cancel Eclipse to keep the old version, we would not get any new features, as it has been for years. The site would slowly break, especially on newer devices, as the code is a patchwork of 20 years - already visible in the broken submit to group menus on deviations, several categories no longer being able to be uploaded to, etc. They would continue to go bankrupt, as t
