I'm tired of using an alias, and I'm pretty sure I can handle any pedophile that comes my way. I'm abandoning the name "mynimal" and moving on over to using my real name. "Alex" where possible, and "Alex Suraci" and its many variants where Alex is taken.
Sorry for any trouble. My new account is asuraci (https://www.deviantart.com/asuraci).
Basically, it looks like the dev team spent the whole time on a new layout, but all of the functionality is just gone. I can't even change the page when I'm browsing art, and 90% of the pages are still the old dA v4 layout. Next time dA releases a version I won't be here, but I hope for their sake they release an actually FINISHED upgrade instead of a half-assed redesign to cope with the current Web 2.0 goodness. Fuck this, I only use this site for skins and customization and I can't even do that now.
