Hey, that was so quick! Thanks for accepting my request!

Deviantart new format only let's me contribute to a few groups, and I dislike it very much. It is a page that now is almost impossible to navigate correctly. Please consider making the site more deviant friendly, as it used to be. If anyone reads this and knows who to forward my request to, I would greatly appreciate them doing so to site administrators. Thanks for reading my vent. I am a member of several groups where I am unable to contribute to any longer. My art exposure has been dramatically deteriorated, and it distresses me greatly

I never liked the Eclipse format personally, so I just stick with the old classic style. You can switch back to that anytime you like. The option should be in your main drop down menu.
