According to staff, after I asked for categories being back, said that they were removed because no one used them. We thought that we did, but we didn't.
That's what I was told about categories, so... they won't bring it back, since apparently we only thought that we used them. Basically it's saying that everyone who used categories was delusional and didn't actually used categories.
What the for real?! I never thought I'd see a statement like that. Thats just a huge smack to the face of the DA community. How can any1 claim we never used categories for submissions. They were required to be selected before even uploading any piece on DA. I wonder how we allegedly didn't use categories. If only the person who made this statement can show us exactly how categories weren't being used... Oh wait 1 year too late now!
My whole year has been stress, I think I'm just used to it now.
My annoyance is not directed at you, but at the staff who say
we don't.. didn't use the categories.
Sigh.. Think I'll go have a cuppa tea.
Mkay... Please bring back art categories. It was WAY easier to get views and find art I liked when we had categories.
Also, you NEED to at least require a minimum of 3 tags on art and it'd be great if fetish art was separated from normal art lol. I'm trying to block tags so I can avoid them but there are too many and lots have no tags so they're unavoidable.
I think it's nice your adding new stuff and junk, but there are some old features that we'd like back too and preferable first instead of the new ones- like the birthday reminders and junk
Unfortunately the other users are absolutely right, for social media there is Facebook this is a TOP art site do not ruin it ... I was better off before with the old version of the site now everything seems so confused missing functions of the old version are a bit disappointed with these updates give us the freedom of art. I can no longer purchase the CORE because your site no longer accepts my ATM. :(
