Well this day is...

Mon Aug 1, 2005, 2:59 PM





...SHIT!!!

EDIT

I think this is what's going on as far as the community outcry is concerned...to all those who are like WTF is with all this.

Jark isn't leaving of his own accord. He's being forced out.  If it was that he was leaving it would be a totally different thing and to be honest we'd be sad, but the majority of the community would support him and wish him well.

I'm no expert on this, but from what I've gathered it's kinda like art theft.  Jark made this site, him and a few friends, but I believe that he was the one who stayed with it all five years.  Suddenly, he's told hit the road the site isn't yours anymore.  He pours his sweat; blood and tears into this site for all five years and this is what he get's for it...a pink slip and a kick in the ass.

That's why it's got me so bothered, if the "new" admins can take a guys site right out from under him then who's to say that they'll uphold the rules on no art theft? No one! That's who.

Support Jark!! Support the Community!!  Down in my footer there's a link to one of Jark's journals.

Yeah, I'm not entirelt clear on EXACTLY whats going on but I've definately looked into it and, frankly, I am quite mad about what I've found out so far. Jark made this site the wonderful thing it is today and I dont think ANYONE has the right to kick him out. It's highly rude and ungrateful, to say the least.

*nods* I know...I'm confused. That's why I'm not pointing fingers exactly. I don't know why this desession went through, but as far as I can tell not even Jark knows the answers to why he was fired/layed off. O_o It'd be totally different if he knew what the hell was up.

*nods* As I said, I'm not pointing fingers. It might have been spyed that made the decission, he is the president after all. However, then again, it might have been something far more complicated. God knows things happen that are so damned confusing that it might be for the best that jark was layed off. There might be more to it than what people think. It might be something jark did that got him stepped down from his post. I don't know. *shrugs* The thing that worries me is that no one cared enough to give an official warning to the community as a whole about this or to jark. Makes me sad that people care so little about each other and so much about money. :(

No kidding. Like you said, there could be reasons behind this that when, or IF, they come to light will clear everything up, but until then I'm seeing this whole thing as a reflection of the real world: focus on monetary gain as opposed to the public welfare.

Agreed! This is the real world in action. However, if this is a power play like people seem to think on spyed's part then we're going to be down a President/CEO pretty soon. It's a legal issue. WTF? Yes, DA admins let's make everybody look like assholes here. :P

I've considered leaving this community for some time because of various things. This is just another nail in the coffin. If they don't give us a justifiable reason then I'm out of here. There is no reason to take a man's creation from him other than a horrific act to said creation.

*nods enthusiasticly* I totally agree. If I was Jark, I'd be upset as hell! I mean, this is like... HIS creation. And to see it in the hands of somebody else... someone who doesnt love it and have so much connection to it as him... I cant even imagine it. And I'm sure he feels all that but he's doing a DARN good job keeping it together and being rational and not going out there and being all "I KILL YOU!" Like I'm sure I would. And for that I deeply admire him. He truly has poise under pressure. And as for feeling like leaving, I dont blame you, and I know you've mentioned it before... but I do wonder if now is the time... It seems like maybe it might send a message of "Whatever. I'm not going to deal with this. I'm outta here." even tho I know that's not it, entirely. But if you did decide to leave, again, that is your choice and I'm sure you have your reasons, even if I dont know them, and you're justified in making that decision. I sure would miss you tho, you're one of the first people I started talking to on this site and you've always been very nice to me.

Thanks! I don't think I'd ever leave entirely. There are too many people I watch on here...but, my reasons for leaving were always that I just never had enough to give the community. My written work as many have stated is good, it's the only thing I'm really proud of as far as artistic things are concerned, but as far as it's concerned I don't need any critiques on it. I'd post drawings, but my scanner is fucked and isn't 100% reliable that it will not crumple my art into a wad, so I have to wait until I can afford a flat scanner instead of a fax machine like thing...like what I wanted. -_-

That's the main reason...if I can't scan my art then there isn't really any point on being here in an art community...except to comment on other's art which I've been very very bad about not doing. :/

Another reason is this: DA is jark's creation. Along with matteo he created the site (this is what I got from jark's journal anyway) and they ran it as best they could while holding down real jobs and school. Suddenly jark's kicked out and his creation taken from him. The greatest of art thefts ever on DA is the theft of the community itself. If the DA head hancho can steal jark's hard work then who's to say he and the other admins are going to support us when somebody steals art from us. O_o That's what's got me wanting to leave. The over excessive nude art on the Daily Deviations isn't helping. I'm getting tired of seeing breasts everyday. If I wanted that I'd go to a strip club every night.

*nods* I know. I think I've gathered enough sources to come up with a logical hypothesis on this though. Jark was the one who made this site (is founder). Poured his soul into this site for five fucking years. Jark is being fired and thrown off the administration of the site. It's corperate art theft! XD
