I changed my D-ID so that it will reflect my account rules. I admit I'm not the expert when it comes to DA layouts... or I'd have done things better...

What I'd wish is that I could add the custom widget to the personal section... I would have used it nicely here... Basically I'd like to be able to totally re-organize things... like put the personal section someplace else altogether.

So... I admit that I'm in that PMS-ish mood that makes me into this not too tolerant person and I got pissed by something here. The rules allow it but I find it offensive... I don't think that under the guideline that people can do as they wish with their groups that people should not realise that some basic courtesy should be used - if you decline a submission, please be decent enough to explain yourself...

Personally I'm beginning to feel that the groups are a problem... they can help you promote yourself but they are ruled by an administrator who is one person usually and his/her taste is what rules... so say an administrator writes the very vague rule: "I will not accept art that isn't pretty...." What does this mean? What is pertty art? This is all in the eye of the beholder...

So why is this upsetting - because DA accepts everybody - all artists can join - no matter how experienced they are (or inexperienced), and I love this about DA... and well, you can always vote for what you personally like by favouriting it - and that's great too - because it's your personal account - and well, it's your personal taste...

But then we come to groups... are they personal accounts? They can be run by one person - and such a person has his own taste, but my feelings are that the only guideline for a group should be the type of art or something that it wants to showcase - so if it's a group for anime - all anime should be accepted, and if it's for scrapbooking, then all scrapbooking material should be accepted - and so forth.

If the acceptence is only for high quality stuff... errr, who decides re the quality? I'd say if a piece was a DD, then it's probably OK to say high quality because it isn't only based on the opinion of the group administrator - but if it's only what the admin thinks... then what is the difference between a group and a collection of faves? Sure, here you can submit stuff, but it is still based on the admin's taste, just like your fave collection is based on your taste....

So this is how I feel... dunno if you agree or not - if you wish, you can share your opinion (politely) or answer my poll (on this page)...

And that's all... *sigh*
