This is an emergency message. I used to stay away, but as you know, the darkest day in the history of Deviantart is coming, in a month the old version of the site will be deactivated. I join the general course and ask you to sign the common petition for those who agree with me.
I do not want to pay money to lazy designers whose job is only to shuffle all the buttons in a random order, only to report to their boss about the work done.Do you think your careless work will go unnoticed by thousands of people?
You are mistaken.
I also think the old design is much more intuitive and pretty.
At first, the use of the eclipse was so strange that I felt like a fool.
But I still like deviantart.
The operators would not have made this decision for no reason.
So I will adapt to the new design.
The only thing I worry about is that a great artist like you disappears.
How about ArtStation or Pinterest ?
ArtStation is similar to the current Deviantart. It is small but more professional.
I think the Pinterest is very different from Deviantart, but there are also many good sources.
It is interesting that it can be used with other sites.
Pixiv is also a famous illustration community site like Deviantart.
But I cannot recommend Pixiv. If you like the anime style of painting, it would be worth a challenge.
I'm trying pixiv right now, but there are even fewer views than my drawings on DeviantArt five years ago. It feels like a dead site.
Pinterest is a porn site.
Maybe I can do something on Twitter
I didn't like Twitter because there were so many aggressive people on Twitter.
If you're not afraid of malicious comments, Twitter will be a very attractive experience.
Anyway, I am happy to see your work continuously. Have a good day.
To me, Eclipse is made for a mobile version, the vertical scrolling folders are great for swiping on a phone, but it pisses me off to have to move my mouse to the far side of the screen, wait for the arrow to show up, then click on it so I can see what they are hiding.
And I prefer to have pages rather than endless scrolling if someone's got a ton of artworks. It can be fun to go right back and see how much improvement has occurred over the years! Eclipse doesn't have that option.
Hello, I am a software developer.
Unfortunately keeping two websites running side by side isn't economically viable. In truth, I'm surprised they had a toggle option in the first place. It triples the website running costs.
I am, however, not a fan of eclipse either. The UI is very awkward.
That's because below what you see. The UI, there are many different systems at work. The back-end code. They won't just need to maintain two layouts, they will need to maintain two instances of these services also. That's a lot of code, which take a lot of resources to keep running and keep live. Not just bug fixing, but also server resources as well.
For each service you have running on a server, that increases the costs.
DeviantArt no longer belongs to its creators and the team that works on the site sits on a salary and goes home in the evening. They just don't care what happens to the site it's just a job.
