I'm really sorry for the lack of activity but my real life has become super busy this year. So, for the first time, I have to delete all messages and notes since there are simply too many. I still very much appreciate every comment, favourite and llama
but I don't have the time to respond at the moment
I'll still look at all of your deviations, though.
On to the, uh, rant:
Dear dA, for the first time in more than a decade, I seriously consider letting my Premium-/Core Membership expire. Not because I'm leaving - I very much intend to stay but because of one single but really annoying issue: The state of the Photography Gallery. One of my favourite things to see what's going on and/or to catch up has always been to browse Favourites 24 hrs or one month. However, over the past years, you have allowed it to become a "miscellaneous" dump full of stolen images (remember when dA would actually remove those?), memes and random non-photography submissions. I consider myself to be pretty good at glancing over images that don't interest me but they have become way too many. Did I write to the gallery mods about this? Sure thing. No reply, though - seems like they've just given up
I know others who have left because of this or withdrawn their support so I'm going to express my opinon with my wallet, too. Dear dA, I still love you but if you want my €, start to actually moderate the Photography galleries again.
