Ok fair enough, the new snazzy look it is not really the problem, it is modern but not that much of a change, I did prefer the old design for nostalgia and all...
but the flipping notification bar is by a far the worst new feature.
Before I could check all my notifications really easily, get rid of the stuff I wasn't interested and take my time to answer all the people who commented on my stuff or new deviations that caught my eye.
The way the menu was set made it quick and simple for me to know what was going on, now it is a mess, a barrage of text that confuses me and hinders my uploading routine. Was it much of an issue to leave the choice to the individual users whether to have eclipse or not? What the heck, the phone app is too a mess but is still better than this, i really hope the deviant art team collects feedback and acknowledges this mistake, hot damn
what are your thought peeps?
Oof, I have some mixed feelings about Eclipse and particularly towards how the dA team handled the PR. People have been protesting the forced switch since it was announced and a lot of folks I've come across feel jilted about the whole ordeal. v_v;
I really like how expressive the wolves are here, even if they're expressing varying degrees of anger. The upper middle and middle left wolves are my favorites simply because they look bewildered more than anything else, heh x'P
anger comes in may waves and forms my friend! What first might start as discomfort can quickly turn into murderous rage! Like with devianart for example...no only joking ahahah
but seriously, I do not understand the need to force people to switch to the new look, is it bad PR to use the old one? Especially when the new one does not seem to be well optimized. Dunno man, I feel that the DE team did a big OOF, I could only hope they will listen to feedback and bring back some old features
thanks a lot buddy i am glad you like it! Half way the sketch I forgot how to draw wolves ahaha have a good one ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Yoooo I really love this piece dude! I might be a sucker for angry wolves, and warm/black colour contrast, so this appeals to my interests, but still, you did an excellent job.
As for Eclipse, yeah I'm not a fan of it, especially the way they've split up notifications, but it's not as bad now as it was when they first introduced it, so I think maybe they've been listening to some feedback at least?
I don't like the "modern" design stuff, I think all the bigger flat boxy designs the web has been trying to push as modern and 'sleeker', is clunky and kind of ugly tbh
it just feels like we're going back to windows95, not advancing
I don't use the mobile app, so I can't speak to that much, but lately it feels like all the websites are redesigning to fit their mobile apps and mobile sites better, but by leaving the computer sites behind, leaving them ugly and hard to navigate
which sucks because I hate using mobile for this kind of stuff, I don't want to be forced to switch over :\
I feel you man, a lot of website are really going for the samey design, very minimalist black or white with massive pics. I liked the dated old green look of DA, it was a classic indeed, but what you want to do...I feel sometimes that I am only shouting into the void. Really glad it improved since the start, lol I can only imagine how crap it used to be ahah
I am really glad you like this champ, I put all myself in what I do and it makes me happy when my art resonates with people. Have a lovely day chief ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
yeah, sometimes I feel like an old man shouting into the void about kids these days, and their newfangled techno-minimalist designs lmao
somehow simple but crowded at the same damn time, ugh
Thanks dude, you too! And I look forward to seeing more of your work as it comes along!
mostly sweaty people I assume! it is the tag anthropomorphic that you must fear my friend ahahah you will never see sonic the same after...
thanks for the compliments buddy have a lovely day ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
