deviantART Loves You by akreon deviantART Loves You by akreon
Don't get me wrong, I don't hate deviantArt. If that was the case I would be long gone. I enjoy art which is uploaded on deviantart everyday and it's friendly community.
What irks me is the way this website is managed. For every thing that is being improved two are being terribly fucked up.

Just read one of the most recent dA articles, if you haven't already about 1000 search limit. --> [link] <--

Cool eh? For millions of art uploaded to dA under every given tag you can now view only 1000. What with the less popular deviants? How can we find their work if they don't manage to get to the first 1k? And good luck with finding a print or a stock image.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-03-01
In the first few hours deviantART Loves You by *akreon was uploaded I received more suggestions for it to be featured than any other piece, and the suggestions have been coming frequently ever since. Even without knowing that you can see from the comments how much support this deviation has received and how many people share the same views and concerns. It's important to note that those with these views, the artist included, still enjoy deviantART and it's for that reason many feel so strongly.
It's drawn with elements of humour and the the artist really has a knack for great expressions.
Suggested by many, many people. ( Featured by kangel )

If Deviantart is the "scum of the art world," then what is "better"?

I like this site, but if I become professional, then I'm going to seldom use DA, as it's a cash-grab that doesn't allow lewd stuff EVEN UNDER A STRICT 18+ FILTER. I'm going to use it until I become decent and I will always use it to view art, but I'm using it as an artist only for a while.

So true. But I still like deviantart. You did a great job, but I'm really surprised you got a DD, no offense. As in, I'm surprised deviantart gave a rant about themselves a DD.

I have a "naive" question.
I haven't been in dA for quite a while and I am trying to come back.
However, I haven't received any feedback of any kind and keep receiving "llamas". What are they?
What do they even mean when it comes to giving feedback to your work?

Thanks!

Jakeukalane Featured By Owner Edited Jan 13, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
is like a standard digital "adward" per se it have no value. Llamas are useful in the sense that in llamatrade you can give them for points. Points are not very usefull in low cuantities but they are money although digital. In the past I gave llamas to the people I think that have great gallery; now I give them if someone have gave me one before, I prefer to give feedback and comments and favs, than a llama that is like nothing, but sometimes I give to a people that I can't allow myself to watch (because I already watch too many people) and after seeing his/her gallery and comment/fav I gave that in order to show my support. But of course everybody takes llamas in a different way, so is not a universal behaviour. Also, could lead to a more exposure of your work, but I don't like to have that only giving llamas (I have seen out there though).

 I totally agree, dA shoves random stuff like badges and points in our face to make the experience tedious and ridiculously competitive. I also don't like the fact that some of the features are only available for premium members. Some are terribly basic, for example multiple favourite deviation widgets which are only available for premium people.

Not gonna lie, really annoyed that the majority of site updates have been things about Muro, St.ash and other things the average user couldn't care less about, and less about fixing the bugs running rampant more and more.

It may be 4 years later but these problems do still exist.

Searching is hard cuz sometimes it gives you an error and you can't search at all for several hours.  Also, sometimes I click on "popular 24 hours" or "popular 8 hours" or something to find more recent art and it just takes me to "popular all time" but the art it shows isn't the most popular art of all time for whatever it is you're searching for, it shows you some recent art that isn't too well done and includes some really stupid memes and fetishes.

Also it's just dawned on me that DA can use our art to sell as t-shirt designs to Hot Topic.  -____-
