Made with Mandel Machine.
Just letting my friends and watchers know I am enjoying a few last days of my beloved DA. I hate working in Eclipse so much that I won't be around a lot after the forced change. It's very uncomfortable for me to look at and ridiculously hard to work in. I'm not rewarding DA for treating us like they did by giving them much web traffic. I am putting most of my work in storage for such time that DA makes the site more usable (I'm sorry, but I have no faith that they will). I will not be letting my art up for thieves who think they can just use it for free because my account is not very active, and also cutting off my share of DA's web traffic.
I may be more active in future times, but if ArtSpacious is launched and I like it, I probably won't be back much at all. I'm actually crying while I am writing this because this more than any other place was my hangout for more than 15 years. It's not a pleasure to use under Eclipse and being housebound because of COVID19, right now I don't need to be somewhere that creates so much frustration.
Love you all and I will miss you more than words can say! Cyd
I would like to thank anyone who faves my work ahead of time. Your comments and favorites are very important to me, and I cherish them all . I will try to respond to comments, but I can no longer keep up with individual thanks.

I dislike using Eclipse so much I can't stand to be on it very long. I am waiting for this new group to open up ArtSpacious, and I may just move to them. I will come back and leave messages if I do.
Okay, good to see you stay Cyd! I am looking forward to tomorrow, hopefully it will be easy ... so that all members can stay on DA, that site ArtSpacious is always a solution!
So we lost everything from our photos and fractals friends etc etc ??? Ooo my gosh, what a misery
We are also losing being able to put params in Sta.sh, birthday notifications, getting points for giving llamas, easy use of groups (Our groups are not tied to our accounts, you have to go to the group page to do anything as an admin), the use of any html or CSS whatsoever. It's not even easy to put faves in folders. It's hard to find anything in folders, even your own work, because there is no pages, only infinite scroll. There is so much missing it makes me want to cry.
I am not deleting my account but I will not be active much unless they fix lots of things that are broken, but I honestly don't think they will.
I has been great having you as a friend. I won't be gone but I won't probably be uploading anymore art. I am going to migrate to this group - ArtSpacious once it is up and running. I am also slowly uploading my fractals to other art sale sites. I will put links on my profile page as soon as I can.
Your story doesn't make me happy at all Cyd If I don't like the eclipse, then I'm also away from DA Too bad that so much will change and become complicated for many members I shiver now for the eclipse, I thought it was not so bad ...
Thank you for the other art link
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. That's why so many people are upset about Eclipse. DA says they have to get rid of the old site to improve the new, but they have been ignoring people's concerns for well over a year now, so I'm not confident much will change.
In the meantime I've already lost a lot of friends. I used to sell my art on this site but I just put most of my art in storage and deleted all the prints because I am not going to make any money for them. I will pop in now and then for my friends but DA isn't getting anything from me. I am uploading my art onto Redbubble and Fine Art America for sales.
your friends, they are going to lose as well. Its going to hit
where they will feel it most..there pockets, they wont get a cent
from me. So I have to agree with you. Good luck with your artwork
