I only post once a month because I want people to know I'm still alive (Even though they probs don't care)
And I kind of avoid writing because all of my (Good) one-shots are being bombarded with "OMFG PLZ WRITE MOAR"
Witch I kinda lie about updating because they're one shots and I have literally no inspiration to write more on them

Plus I consider my art SO sucky ;-;

Well I had several breaks because of school but I never considered to leave completely. And I also don't think that this will change in the next time because even if I'm really busy and don't have that much time to draw, I enjoy the feedback that I get on my artwork. c: (even if it's not always that much xD)

There isn't really any reason for me to leave/deactivate my account so I've never really considered it. I feel insecure about my art sometimes but it's nothing I would quit DA over, because even if I stopped drawing, I wouldn't want to leave this place and the wonderful people I know here behind.

Though I'm pretty sure I won't stop drawing anytime soon, I've got so much to achieve still!

I left for a while after deactivating my first account, which was a long time ago... basically I got all kinds of butthurt because someone was uploading my art on Facebook, ended up making a HUGE deal out of it until they took it all down, and then I came back like a month or two later.

And sometimes the drama on this site can get to be a little much, and sometimes I overwork myself to the point where I need to take a hiatus, but I probably won't ever just leave without a really good reason.

And after the whole incident with my mom and chatting on here, I lost a solid 2/3 my audience and that still haunts me on a day-to-day basis. It's selfish to say but sometimes that stresses me out enough to where I'd like to leave or take a break. :/

Right now this is the easiest way for me to showcase my artwork. That may change in the future. But for right now, this is where my art is at home.

came back after a couple months with a whole new identity and only went back to people I knew I trusted

after about two or three years on deviantart, i left for a month or two only to make a new account (this one). i mainly left because the people i knew when i had the account were really toxic, there were some embarrassing things on there, and i had a reputation for attracting negative energy, negative people, and just being a ball of negativity myself. this account was sort of me wiping the slate clean and getting a fresh start.

(sorry if this was a bit more then you needed to know about, i'm not trying to make you uncomfortable 8V)

I have considered moving fully over to Weasyl, simply because deviantart is just... dead. Nobody talks to me like they used to, if anybody at all. Not mny of my watchers are active, its just boring now. I've been here for three years, and I remember enjoying it here forever when I first started out. Its just not fun anymore.

On occasion.

Namely, because I'm fed-up with how buggy the site seems to be laltely, and how invasive and unoptimized the ad platform is...

Other than that, I can't think of any good reasons.
The "new identity" thing doesn't particularly please me, either, but it isn't enough to drive me off...

I know someone who says she is leaving, or since has left, because...ugh...
She got the short end of the stick, it seems...

My currently incapacitated computer has Adblock Plus installed.
So, normally, yeah, I don't have problems with ads. (I'm sorry, but the premium pay-wall to get rid of ads is bullcrap, and I feel no pity for those who have their little systems circumvented, or even, services pirated.) Actually, I know a free alternative to dA's/<most social network sites> poll system, now, and it's about a billion times more flexible!

yeah...
Maybe she's still on my skype at least...
But, i kinda don't have access to that atm, either...
