... Well that was a wildly inappropriate update.

Enjoy :D

For those who don't know (shame on you), "Deviant Guide to being a Jackass" is a sequel (in spirit) of Critique is Dead, something with a lot more writing.

Honestly, I thought this was serious until I saw the end. And what's sad is many of us are guilty of AT LEAST one of these rules at one time.

And to answer...

Good heavens, no!

Honestly, I think you nailed them all... Well maybe there's one or two you missed, but people will always find more ways to be an jackass.

This is an incredible work.

What is the point of an art community of people that can't express their opinions, say pointless stuff everytime (some silliness is healthy, though) or are close-minded?

Also: "You hated or disliked an artwork/artist? Promote a crusade against it/them." and "Use complicated words which meanings you don't know and always type a shitload of "elaborated" text, everyone will see how smart you are."

This was really funny! It is funny because it is true. This may be old but it is absolutely timeless!
Great guide. I will now read the prequel. Thank you for making this :D

You typed "deviantions" once and you're using the Brittish and American spelling of 'favor/favour' interchangeably. I also noticed a few other typos so you might want to double-check what you wrote. Having said that, this is some excellent work; it's amusing and I can appreciate the satire and social criticism.

OH no, that's a lot to take in, how do you know if you are a Jackass or just can't comment on a piece of work or have no idea about the process it would take to create in order to critique it to help an artist out and make an excellent comment. How do you not like what you actually like so easily? Maybe I'm taking it too far, but I love what this says and stands for.

Hmm. I'm obviously not a Jack (butt)
I encourage everyone and I'm very indepth with my comments,sometimes taking up most of the comment box.

One you can add to the list: -when you fave an art, unfave it after a couple of days later! :typerhappy:

Haha this is awesome! This is precisely what I see a lot of dA "celebrities" doing. It's obnoxious.
