Using the deviantArt in the presence of Eclipse is like having temporary refugee from demolition of your childhood house. In theory you got chance to opt out, but the neighborhood is no longer the same and every day you see the demolition of neighboring houses to build the distopian large panel system blocks of flats.
I remember how twenty years ago the city demolished the meadow I was playing at as a child, and nearby kamienice, to build a wide overpass road. I now feel the same, every time I think about updating my profile on dA, maybe even buying that expensive Core Membership to get access to more profile widgets, I have that nasty feeling that it is just a facade of non-existent world and nobody will see what I write, as there is that Eclipse that hides everything that made deviantArt social network site making it just generic spiritless online portfolio / image sharing place.
I last for the times when creating sophisticated arrangements of stamps, and other graphical elements in your description still was a thing and defined how others see you.
