I’m really not so sure what’s going to become of my 14 years here on DeviantART when the Eclipse becomes mandatary next month, I really don’t. I've tried to use the Eclipse version a number of times now since its first rollout and I have never been able to stay on it very long before toggling right back to the original interface in order to properly find notes, communication, and get my grounding.
I have to be perfectly honest — I can’t guarantee staying. I don’t know. Perhaps DA intents to listen to our concerns and make improvements to its new layout during this four-week transitional period. I truly don’t know, but I find Eclipse to be currently visually uncomfortable, anxiety-inducing, (for me personally) and unusable.
Everything changes, this is true. What I might do is make my DeviantART a link directing my followers/friends to a new site not yet chosen for my art and Metatisic. I don't truly know what this means and I wish I had a solid answer. I feel kinda numb about this at the moment and I’m hoping that I am just simply not thinking clearly. I don’t like to give up and I also don’t like to cave in.
This might be a death nail.
We all lose steam, but....

May the best artist win!
Eclipse just sucks. balls. Big time.
I don’t know if DA just wants to alienate whatever is left of their userbase - which ain’t much these days - or *what* it is that they’re playing at!? but besides the grievances already vented - the message/feedback section is indeed just unusable - my biggest beef is the insane amount of megs it uses to load, me, having an older computer + older browser, it makes the whole site - on top of everything else: unbrowsable too.
Must everything be turned into tablet/phone friendly? Because that’s real reason behind this: use-finger-to-click abomination.
