...Or is it twitter... Oh shit wait no it's that new hip and cool social media site called DeviantArt, you know that place that has shady looking fetish "art" all over the site and more grossly overrated fandoms than a google search for "Anime". DeviantArt is that site that could be seen as on-par with 4chan on the levels of "What the fuck did I just look at" and "Are people really this stupid".
Today on this site you may have noticed that your Profile widget has been demoted to being under an Activity feed... because people that go to your page are clearly interested in stalking what you've been up to. That widget died so quick on my page that it's existence relative to the time I'm typing this is negligible at best and yet its existence is just a mere drop in the water of why irritated I am getting with how this site is being managed.
Unfortunately there are no other sites that compare to how DeviantArt was. There are some excessively underrated yet exclusive art sites but nothing that screams "community of artists of all skill levels and variety of styles". You could say this site screams that but it's only a whisper in comparison to the recent cries of attention that it didn't need as it tries to make itself more socially orientated and thus alienating it's current users that either don't have social media in their lives or are sick of it and left it completely.
I would explain my disgust for the sites recent direction in the change logs but that would fall upon deaf ears. The trouble is they've put effort into making changes and must think that there is no going back. Unlike real artists they listen and improve. Improvement is not defined by changing something and then trying to make the angry mob less viscous. That is more closer to the definition of failure and for the lack of better terms "A complete shambles and disconnection from the goal"... well I say that if the goal was to become a crappy social media site that could be seen as similar to Google+ and it's integration then hats off to you, you well surpassed that goal.
I came here. Came here to DeviantArt over 2 years ago because a friend saw my art and said "You should upload it to DeviantArt. It's an art site where you can browse and share your art". They did not say "Hey that's nice, you could fling that on DeviantArt then have a chat with me there. Don't worry I won't spam the feed too much with collections".
Unless this site takes a U-turn ASAP then the second another site pops up I'm not only moving over to it but hell I will invest and make sure that it triumphs because I have had it with this site. I am done with it's arse-backwards management and stupid bugs that are questionable as to how they get there.
Unlike other whiney journals I don't think I'll delete this one. The others I typically do because I feel upset at the lack of discussion they bring forward but this in itself is my message to the site and anyone that reads it. I am not happy, a great deal of others are not happy and those that are still come across as having the opinion that this change will take a bit to get used to. Feedback on a successful and "NEEDED" change does not mix with "Will need some getting used to" as it's opening line.
This change was not wanted by the majority, was not needed for the website and is not welcomed by the used base that is making headway into this site.
P.S. Oh and by the way fix the goddamn HTML, please leave it alone. do not make this "smart" setting or whatever you tossers called it, because opening old HTML I have typed comes up with ludicrous amounts of useless tags that open and close before a word like < /span>...
