I liked premium when I had it. How different (aside from cost omg) is core?

I had premium for like 4 years (mostly bc of me taking advantage of the buy-one-get-one-free offers they were doing lmao) & when it finally ran out it was like. The only things I really missed were the ability to make polls & not having adverts everywhere.
Hence I decided it wasn't worth the money even before they p much doubled the price

You know when you pick an answer it shows the percentages of each option, when I added them up I got 99%

Then you have a really bad glitch going on because in my case nothing says 99%, not on the previous one you said that on either.

The percent of people who voted on each question are as follows
30, 22, 21, 15, 7, and 4
Add all those up you get 99, so the poll is missing a percent

I used to have Core Membership, but since I started a Donation Pool, most of the Points that were given to me were spent entirely on obtaining one-month Membership.  I liked some of the features-especially being able to see who's visited your page and such-but I didn't use many others.  It'd be nice to have it again, but I haven't been feeling up to starting another Pool, especially since Memberships are even more expensive now. :p

For a one-month like the ones you used to buy, the prices barely changed, so you could still do that :0

I've had premium/core for 4 years now, and I won't go back. I've made a few regular accounts that aren't subscribed, and it's irritating not being able to browse effectively (120 deviations per page), not being able to customize my gallery/front page and not being able to use widgets/polls. I get that it's expensive, but $50 for 12 months isn't that big of a deal - compare it to a $75 monthly phone bill i mean XD
Besides, the only time I renew my membership is around christmas when dA does the "buy 1 get 1 free", so it's 2 years worth of membership for $50 (score)

Yesss, I really hope they will do the "Buy one get one free" thing even with the new prices. I really liked that, and I think it's a good way for them to sell more memberships x3

I've had on for the past 7 years I've been on dA through all of my accounts, I don't think I'd be able to function well without one because I've forgotten how dA is without one, it would take a lot of time and adjustment. DeviantART is my home, I don't mind occasionally paying rent.

Core is actually a way to get money. DA would've shut down suddenly without it. (I read a factual journal) DA had to fire half of their workers, because they're going broke ;~;

I originally wanted to get a premium membership because I was sick and tired of all the ads with sound since they kept giving me minor heart-attacks. Then my sister showed me a free ad blocker and I decided against getting a premium membership (that and I couldn't afford it anyway).

I'm not sure if I want to renew mine or not.. but I'd like to ask here (if it's okay w/you Bienie?)  To people without memberships.. are you able to use sub-folders in your gallery?

Just debating cause certain features I think I'd be okay without/don't really need.. but that one I do need ;;

People without subfolders can't make them, but if you make them while you have a Core and it runs out, they stay.

I just thought they'd go "poof" once your sub runs out

SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can't add new subfolders until you get another membership, but you can submit art to existing subfolders and rearrange the art in them as you wish :)

When I didn't have premium/core, I was ok and I easily got used to some things which were for members only. Now, I can't live without it! Custom boxes, subfolders, polls... I love to use them. I can't imagine myself after my premium/core expires, so I'm gonna extend it any time. The only thing that is worrying me are the prices

Yea, the prices going upmight be a problem for some, but I guess I will still try to support them.
