How do you feel about people who make a whole different account for certain content (for example, one account for commissions and one for personal, one for ARPG and one for non-ARPG, one for adoptables and one for everything else, ...)?

I don't really know how to feel about it/it depends on the kind of content that is being separated.

It's a nice idea, but it's not for me.

Good idea! I do that myself too/I would do that myself as well.
I personally probably wouldn't do it, but I understand if it's separating like a professional account and a personal account. I myself like to keep everything in one place, tho if I were actually professional I might consider that. Idk
Having one other account to separate your commissions/work from your personal/RP is kind of a good idea, however having more accounts than that is a little overboard... and kind of against DA rules. So I wouldn't have several at one time, personally anyway
Depends what's being separated. I think it's silly to put commissions and personal art on different accounts, but I'm all for having two accounts if the second has adoptables, stamps, etc.--stuff that's not quite... well, I don't want to say "art" (cause it still is) but like... is meant for purposes other than just staring at something pretty. If you know what I mean ;;
Yea, that's understandable. I don't mind adopts who are drawn completely by the artist themselves, but adopts on bases by others are things I click away instantly because I'm just not interested in those
for the most part though i do prefer when stuff is in all one place, but i know sometimes its just a really rare thing(my other accounts are very inactive TBH) that doesn't fit in as well with the normal stuff
I have nothing against it, but like many others I prefer to have everything in one place. I tried an adoptable account and all it did was aggravate me.
Like you said, I understand making separate accounts for things. It tends to be mostly for audiences, as I know I've lost watchers (as well as gained them) as my art has shifted from one category to another - but in that case I believe the artist shouldn't much care. My belief is that art should be enjoyed, not that one draws to please (with the exception being commissions), but draws for themselves.
I know a lot of people who stress about loosing watchers or not doing enough to please them... I, too, was like this at one point as well. Agreed, it's so much better drawing for yourself rather than worrying about others' reactions to your art.
I'm not an artist, but I like seeing everything in one place. There is no requirement that you like every piece of art of an artist who's work you generally like, but having it in one place can be a gateway to appreciating things you might otherwise reject.
I'm pretty much the same as you Bienie I prefer to have it all in one place because it's less tricky to manage for me but I can understand how some people find it easier to have separate accounts for it all c':
I personally generally prefer to have everything in one place. Be it adoptables, ARPG, commissions, humanoids, animals, etcetera. I wouldn't be able to manage multiple active accounts, nor would I enjoy it personally! In this account, everything directed to me comes together in my inbox. It's just easy for me
I do understand it if people want to make accounts for two things they are active in, but that are really different in audience (for example, cosplay on one hand and animal art on the other hand, or cake decoration on one hand and landscape art on the other. But even then, I don't mind if people only use one account! I can also understand people making another account for adoptables on bases rather than on their own linearts, if they don't want to clog up their gallery with art on other people's bases.
I don't have any active side accounts myself, either. It just doesn't work for me! Art is art, and I put effort in all of it, so I wnat to showcase it all. I don't use adoptable bases either, nor do I make adoptables often in general, so I don't feel like that needs to be in its own place ARPG helps me practice my backgrounds, so I like for those to be here, too. And my commissions are mostly just animals, which I draw in my personal art too, so I highly doubt people mind seeing those in my gallery!
