NOW I know why deviantArt got so 'quiet' in past months.
All the good and famous artists are simply LEAVING this place!
No wonder why it became so lonely being online here.

Maybe see if you can ask those artists for contact info outside of dA (Skype, etc.) if you're both friends?  Or find other ways to participate in the community (what's left of it, heh) by joining groups and contests.  There are tons of ARPG groups and OCTs on here that have great communities!

Also, I think it's mainly a portfolio thing.  Most companies looking to hire artists see dA as unprofessional, so professional artists are leaving so when they show potential bosses their portfolio it's on a website with a better reputation (or their own domain).

It's most prudent for an artist to have several sites, to reach out to many groups

I agree. Maybe it's Deviantart's new shit is pissing off many artists and they don't want to put up with it anymore. Or maybe they're finding other websites such as Twitter or Tumblr to go on instead. I really don't know but you've got a point.

Vielleicht ist es an der Zeit, dass ich auch mal langsam gehe. Ich habe das schon viel zu lange ausgereizt und ich sehe ja selbst, wie viel davon noch raus kommt.

Du kannst ja hin und wieder reinschauen, wegen den Comics, z.b "Home", der wird ja immer wieder upgedated. 
Wie findest du Tumblr den so? Oder bevorzugst du eine andere Seite?

Ich bin noch recht aktiv auf tumblr, aber auch da wird das Interesse weniger.
Ich denke mal, die Leute finden ein eigenes Leben und haben einfach besseres zu tun, als Bildchen zu liken. xD

Hahah! Nun, es gibt noch ein paar Leute wie uns, sie sind nur schwerer zu finden! XD
Aber du bist sehr im MU Fandom, ge? Film Fandoms sind leider immer in der Gefahr "auszusterben" :/

Es ist bereits so gut, wie tot. 
Die Leute, die noch übrig sind, kann man von einer Hand abzählen. :c
Frustriert mich auch sehr oft.
