Reasons why many are leaving DeviantArt:
1. Fandomshit (DON'T ruin my childhood SONIC!)
These are some of the only groups that ever gain any popularity.
Less obnoxious groups like traditional artists, older Europeans, non-US 'foreigners', hobbyists,
and ESPECIALLY Art Students who give a lot of favorites tend to be a lot more tolerable.
But it's the five kinds of idiots I've mentioned above who seem to have 'polluted' this once quality-filled site.
