To you, does having a Core membership make you enjoy being on DeviantArt more? And if so, what Core features are the most valuable to you?

I don't think a Core membership benefits me at all! I do not or barely make use of the added on features.

It does provide some neat things, but I can go without it without wanting one.

I quite like having one, and I kind of want it again when I don't have one. Some things are less enjoyable when I'm not a Core member.

I really like being a Core member and have a hard time going without the extra options I get.

To me, DA isn't really worth being on if I don't have a Core membership.

I honestly can't tell as I never got to experience the perks of being a Core member myself, and I don't know if I would enjoy them!

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%
SpitfiresOnIce's avatar

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
