Leaving DeviantArt

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 27, 2017, 12:44 PM


I've been a member of DeviantArt for a very very long time. It says 6 years but I've definitely been on here lurking for over 10! As you may (or may not) have noticed, I'm no longer active here. Mainly because I feel the interface and community spirit has declined, but also because I feel like I've moved on from the platform. I will still post pictures from time to time (and I won't delete any of my work!) but please do not make any effort to contact me over here. Don't worry, I'm still creating art and post everyday on other social media platforms! You can follow/contact me through any of the sites below. I hope to see you there!

What the actual freak is wrong with you, you damn pervert?! This is a serious blank, and what the hell are you doing on it? You do nothing but prove that DeviantArt is not what it used to be, if it's really come to this. You have nothing to do with this deviant, you're freaking new, and you're nothing more than one of those hentai freaks who belong on on a certain site called "pornhub" (whatever that is.) Get off DeviantArt - if this is how you're reacting to Hannah leaving her fans on DeviantArt, you don't belong here. Go back to your hentai videos or other crap.

I know DA have truly lost it's edge over the years we come much mature and better. I wanted to leave this site last fall due to my nervous feelings but I getting back few days ago, a bit much motivated to what have happened in the late news. (Much because of the Trudeau's decision to not taxed Netflix and not care to our culture.)

But please, if you really want to leave, just don't remove your account in case you want to send more later. We need also good rest off of this site in our life. :heart:

Sent with love: the word you want (re Disney) is "affect" not "effect." it's a tough one to remember, but I pounded it into my brain at one time and it stuck. Most of the time "affect" is the verb and "effect" the noun.  It can be reversed, but just stick with the general rule. You can Google this for more info!

Sorry to see you go, but I definitely understand what you mean. DA tends to attract a younger crowd and require a much heavier community involvement to get your work noticed. Glad to know you aren't going to be deleting your gallery though, and thanks for sharing the other places your work can be enjoyed! I will certainly be following. :)

That's very sad to hear. I undestand your choice: other platforms feels like having more immediacy to them but I still like how you can easily search - and find - things here, while on facebook and instagram is very difficult to browse older post/messages/publications... And the difference in quality of uploaded pictures...
I already follow you on all your other contacts but still hope to see things here someday!

Aw, another one? I've seen at least 3-4 artists in my Watch List announce this in the past few weeks! I didn't realize it'd gotten so bad. Are the watchers & commenters just fewer now? I kind of prefer this as a fan, because everyone's in one place, but I respect your wishes. I guess I'll follow you on Facebook :).

I've seen this happen myself, not just you. For some reason DA, ever since the logo change, just never become the same as it once was before. I still have a screenshot of my channel from 2013, a year before the huge change up in 2014. And I still look back at it thinking "How great would it be to go back to those days when it use to be good."

Now, well, it's very different then what I remembered back then. I've had about 5 to 10 people leave DA over my 6 years of being on this platform.

Jabroniville Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2018
Yeah, I had a friend decry the logo change as being a "Jump the Shark" moment as well. It seemed odd because it was so minor... but it seemed to go along with a lot of people abandoning the site, and fewer and fewer people finding new artists and faving their work.

MJMSTUDIOS2020 Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2018
Yeah. Luckily someone out there made a replacement one on the chrome and firefox store for free, but sadly it doesn't work on waterfox.

Nevertheless, it's can be sad to think about what DA has done to do such a bad change like this to make people go away.

But, I'll still be on DA for the rest of my life; Just not checking or posting much as I use to in the past.

you kinda just answered your own question of why the activity on here seems to have declined... just like you with 'moved on from the platform', that is a good bet in what many others have done, which is why you feel there's a decline

I agree that this site has been becoming less and less of a useful platform for years now. Other sites have become a far more visible way to promote one's work and gain feedback. Best of luck in your endeavors! Not that you need it much, because you're amazing.
