Goodbye DA ... You Will be Missed

..... So here I present my last post on DA ... or to be more exact , on Our Long Standing Original DA format , before everything gets Eclipsed  :bleh:

I don't think I'm far off from expressing what a LOT of us DA denizens feel , in saying Goodbye to a set up we've know for years , and that the image of the Foreboding Eclipse Change , is what so many of us have echoed in countless protests , petitions , shows of unified disapproval ....

.... for blazes sake , we've been screaming from the DA Roof Tops  ever since this new format was announced , that  .....  :rage:  WE  DON'T WANT ECLIPSE !!!!!  :rage:

That's the maddening thing really .. We never did ! ... All we really wanted over time , was tweaks and fixes and improvements to be made on particular DA issues  Serviceman Fella ( Works ) by Ehsartem , But We Never asked for a complete face lift to where we don't even recognize the site so many of us call a second home  :ilovedevart: by zacthetoad    And the DA Gods , just kept trying to feed us Eclipse without hearing the masses yell out ..  NO!!! frustrated

And now we're near on the eve of DA destruction , by what's happening , and what's possibly about to happen ...  Emotes 9 by Marsy-88

May 20th , or around that date of late May ... will see all of us Eclipsed , and this time  " Without "  the switchback option to classic DA  :O  .. I know this is not news for most of us , but it's like a slap in the face ...

... no matter how you prepare for it or think about , a Lot of Members won't process that Eclipse Happening , with no turning back , till it actually happens .. that " It Just Got Real " moment Do not try and bend the spoon ...

And then we get a Art Station - Rip Off  new look , and the kayos that ensues in trying to adapt :nuu: :faint: 

We may see a number of members we know depart with a solemn ... "  F *** THIS ECLIPSE!! WINNER! 

And not surprising if we continue to see those opposed to Eclipse , continue to protest , till hopefully the Eclipse Gods ears start to bleed  Censored

.............. But there will be those of us , who , if not already having done so , will take that deep DA memory breath .... and press on ... like myself.   :epic: by NerdXV

A number of members here have finally declared their decision to remain with Eclipse upon us .... perhaps for the same reason as I do .....

......... because this ' is ' a second home to me , and the people here I share it with , are much the reason I've been here for over seven years :hug: :handshake: :nod:

But credit where it's due .... I appreciate the DA House as well , with all those friends , and adventures within  :highfive:  :spotlight-left: :bow: Banned!  and keep many found memories of my living here  :aww:

And in that last thought , is why I drew this artwork .... to say my Farewell to an ' Original ' DA house , in transition to an Unwanted Eclipse , that for the Owners Utterly Ignoring Us , makes for a tragic goodbye.

So as Vladen 13 and  :iconjokerismyname: 's  M J ... whom I'm sure feels much the same ....  see The DA Fella off to his Fate ....  The Title says it well .....

Goodbye DA ... You Will be Missed

You said all there can be said, I can't add more to be honest hehe!

It's a shame, but like said we press on, we adept and make this our new home.

In time, I am sure we will learn and adjust.. despite how clumsy it seems.

Together in unity; onwards.. our Eclipse and our first moon on a new site!

Thanks :)

It might not be so bad , if they at least kept a lot of things that people enjoyed , even if the lay out is just an Artstation rip off ....

... I've noticed no Birthday updates , and no stash writer :shakefist: , and am still figuring out this Eclipse line up :confused:

But as you said .. onwards :nod:

It is my first day of genuinely using 'eclipse'. It's frustrating, it's tedious and it's just sad...

I think what needs to happen is all the artists that are more then likely going to lose money due to the stupidity of eclipse and all members that had a core membership sue the people responsible for the "O so amazing eclipse update" for damages and one of the things that happens is they don't have a choice the classic version of DA is to come back immediately along with paying the damage to artists a lot of who depended on DA commissions for $$ to survive

Frankly any reason to get back the original DA, works for me :eager:

I feel bad the old DA is on its final journey and we should give it a great send off and say “fair thy well” u will be miss and I understand some are gonna part from DA to parts known and unknown but as for me I plan on to stick it out but I will watch others on pages like furaff and pixiv. I just hope Vladen u not departing too?

I had to think about the song "Live and let die" by Paul McCartney. Really Sad

Hope ArtRise and ArtSpacious become our new homes.

I think the only reason there forcing Eclipse is because its cheaper to maintain the site.

That's out of my realm of knowledge , in terms of tech costs :confused: , assuming most of the options from old DA are included in Eclipse :hmm:

One person suggested their doing it to appeal to younger artists , coming in to this Artstation copycat .... which , if true  , doesn't say much for the old guard here :paranoid:
