    I was on the front page of DA, and happened upon a picture of a "snake."
    [​IMG]
    Why is the snake's stomach on her ass? Why does she actually have an ass?

    Anyways, I noticed the "More Like This" feature, and decided to check out how crappy it is.
    So, what do we get?
    Links to mehmeturgut's other pieces, and this
    [​IMG]
    a tit pic with a weird facial expression.
    Another broken "feature" of DA.

    Gee, another useless feature.

    Here's an idea dA mods, why don't you start working on something that could actually be considered an improvement for the site (like the report system for example), instead of cluttering your site with bullshit features that don't even work that well.

    because if they were to spend time on reports, they'd never have time for worthless, cluttering gimmicks.
    and if they were to spend time on reports and acknowledge they're severely behind, they'd have to owe lolly an apology, and god forbid they ever, EVER, do that.

    they will never spend more time or money on reports because that'd make the community, y'know, actually happy, unlike this worthless shit.

    How about cleaning up the site with some handy dandy bans on fetishfags- oh wait, DA has turned into a new porn hosting site. Yeah, even the layout is similar to HentaiFoundry, it's disgusting.

    They're never going to ban many fetishfags. The mods love jerking off to their creepiest works.

    The unfortunate truth.

    There needs to be a cleansing of shitty mods all the mods on DA.

    Obvious, but it had to be said
    Unfortunately, at this advanced stage of decay, the only viable option is to burn it all to the ground, salt the earth, and rebuild somewhere else

    At least then, we'd lose all the shitty DDs, and "hot topics" no one gives a flying fuck about.

    they need to shut the site down for a week or two like conceptart.org did and redesign the whole site, because that clusterfuck when you hover over 'deviantart' in the left corner is a nightmare to navigate. shit like that scares away new members.

    really, every page has so much shit going on it's nerve-wracking. i mean, there's just so much shit going on.
    i went on an archive of devart in 2003 and it was much easier to navigate, shit. they weren't forcing stupid shit on you constantly. it was overall easier to navigate before they added in shit like muro and stash. now they have to have more links on every page; it's just a clusterfuck.

    Deviant Art was a two-week art project. Thereafter, it become a way to make money only, another Pizza Hut success story.

    The problem being, that DA isn't successful.
    Well, I guess for the people who get their fetish shit viewed, and those who use it to fap, it's successful.
    But only to those fags.

    There is barely a difference between the layouts of "art" websites.

    Right. And the owner of the site isn't making $$.
    Why didn't I see this before.
    Thanks.

    Speaking of these, I'm pretty sure the "Random Deviation" feature is set to bring you to shitty deviations only. I was waiting for class, and had nothing to do, so I clicked on it a bunch of times, and all it brought me to were generic animu with no understanding of anatomy, shitty icons and "dark and edgy" pieces of writing.

    And don't forget about llamas.

    And I agree with you all: it would only do this site good, if they closed it down and completely revamped it, not only visually but also in terms of content. They should introduce new rules and regulations regarding submitions, including an all-out ban on fetishfags and all the like. It wouldn't make the site perfect, but at least it would be a huge step towards making this site better.

    However, I'm afraid that in order to do that dA, as some of you have pointed out, must get rid of their current mods and replace them with people that are actually competent and know how to handle shit. The sooner that happens, the better. Oh, and they should also choose a team of competent people to make DD suggestions, since, as it has been proved countless times, the current team of "suggesters" have a pretty shitty taste, know jackshit about quality and generally do a piss-poor job choosing DDs.

    Actually, the "Random Deviation" feature can be quite usefull: you can always base a drinking game around it (take a shot for every shitty deviation that pops up after hitting the "Random Deviation" option).

    Why is Jesus the only one trying to help that cross with its period? Those Monguls in the back are so rude. Look at that one, staring at the period blood on his hand like "what the fuck is this shit"

    What exactly is the point of sta.sh anyway? It seems like a pretty useless feature to me.

    What the fuck is sta.sh?

    Must be another one of those features that I didn't bother to look at because it hides underneath all the clutter from other bullshit features.

    I think part of it is to allow you to batch upload? (Good for stock photogs, I guess.)

    I really have no idea either.

    Yup, quite useless. It lets you upload pictures to it, then from there, you upload them to dA (as well as other major platforms!) Why not just upload them to dA in the first place?

    Pretty much that, and it lets people put their images "in storage" for some reason so you can't access or look at them afterwards, it just shows a stupid safe in place of the image itself.

    they promoted it for, like, works in progress.
    but that's what scraps was for, so who fucking knows
