For the past two days I've been trying to come up with an idea about how the site's layout update should be. Suggestions regarding the Core members' benefits:  Core members should have the ability to customize their background image or colors.  The number of Custom boxes should be 20 instead of 10 for Core Members. Access to all of the widgets that already existed in this site. Core members being able to change their username every 3 months. Suggestions regarding the NON-Core members' benefits: Non-Core members should have the ability to change the colors of their backgrounds. Non-Core memebers should be given the right to have

I have moved most of my images for sale to www.SaatchiArt.com/RBCD While I enjoy DA very much and have participated, I have not had a return on investment.  I will stay on for the other artists I have come to appreciate here, the ability to print magnets, etc.  I would also like to keep engaged with this site in case they ever come up with a formula to reimburse artists.  One idea that I find compelling is to charge for likes.  For a while I have been paying artist with DA bucks each time I liked one of their images.  I think this should be part of the process when a person clicks on likes an image then a screen pops up asking what the collector wishes to donate to the artist, or accesses a minimum charge.  People who collect images can then contribute to the artist's effort.  Collectors could even earn a new type of badge...  I recommend that DA do something like this and make the DA Bucks convertible to cash (20%DA,80%Artist) or benefits based on what the artist desires and if they meet all the requirements for a cash disbursement.
Here are some of those other artists I love:

Humm...  Y'know that's an interesting idea, about charging for favs.  Now it only requires a nervous twitch to fav a drawing.  If there was more at stake/investment a fav would mean more than just a pat on the back kind of thing.  Also if there was a real world advantage to DA points I'd be more interested in collecting them.  Since my local art supply store doesn't accept DA points, I can only only do commissions for real money.

Yeah, I think it is another case of dying from exposure.  I would use DA points for things like magnets and mugs but cash is best, thsnks!
