15 years here at deviantART.
I've loved it like a second home, but it looks like...
"All good things must come to an end".
It's effing sad. I'd rather it had just shut down than see it transformed into this buggy, broken, frustrating, infuriating, limited-control, feature-stripped, sorry-ass-excuse for an "art" site.
I hope some drastic changes will be forthcoming (and soon) to fix this WixEclipse abomination, but I have a sick feeling in my gut that it's not going to happen, that we're going to have to either swallow it or leave...
Fingers crossed that Artrise and/or ArtSpacious will fill the void, not just for artists/artwork, but for stock/resource providers as well, with support for non-image files (zip, rar, abr, psd, etc.) and a download count...
(Jeezus... what brain-dead moron(s) made the decision to remove the download count for deviations? That's vital information for stock/resource providers.)
Not sure what the future holds for my gallery and resources/freebies. I've disabled my Core auto-renewal and it's pretty much just a waiting game at the moment... major fixes/improvements to Eclipse vs. what Artrise/ArtSpacious have to offer when they're ready for the public.
