Soooo...just learned that IGN rated ORAS 7.8 because of too many HMs and too much water. 1) WHAT THE HECK. YOU NEED THESE IF YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO PLAY ANY POKEMON GAME. DURR. 2) Umm...it's an island region and stuff. It's based on an actual island. ...there will be water on islands...

GUYS GUYS IGN = TEAM MAGMA
Have you ever wondered what life would be like if crocodiles became the intellectually superior race instead of humans?

Too Much Like Tumblr

Okay, I can't be the only one with this opinion. Let's face it: one of the reasons why we all joined dA was because it was unique compared to the other community and social media websites. It was different. It was an artist community, themed around the art, not focused on displaying that, oh! you can search up things using hashtags and tags! That was what tumblr, facebook, and twitter were for. You wanted to post a status update, you went there, you didn't go to your homepage and type something in. Admittedly, yes, we did have those little shoutout boxes, but those didn't really count, and yes, you could link your dA page to a twitter page, but that wasn't actually being a social media website. That was just linking it to one. It was what made dA enjoyable; that it was different than other websites, based around the art but was still easy to navigate and communicate with others. A combination.
 
(Beware, I'm going to basically write a paper on this.)

At this point, I assume you're all well-aware that dA has changed, with a huge update remodeling basically the entire layout of the website. Adding hashtags (which I personally hate), status updates, etc. which I have tried out and don't necessarily think they're bad, I just think they take away from the dA that we're used to. I do know I'm also being a bit rejective to change. A lot of people do that, and it's a common flaw, which I won't deny that I have. But the new layout is just not my cup of tea. I don't like using the hashtags to search pictures, or tagging pictures with hashtags. It's becoming another instagram, and you can post art on instagram anyway. So why is dA changing to become like these other websites? We loved you the way you are, and of course now with the names and messages shoved all the way to the right it's hard for me to remember where it is, and sometimes the drop-down menu doesn't appear. Yes, this could be my computer, but this never happened before.

Wow. Okay. I am being a bit too rejective. This is my own opinion, too; if you guys don't like it feel free to stop reading. But PLEASE don't hate in the comments. For my sake and for yours.

A suggestion? I don't really have one, but I would say to either change it back or make it so it's customizable, or something. It's like being a beta tester, but for everyone. It was shoved on us before we had the choice to accept it or not. And I'm not sure whether the new layout was beta tested or not, but personally it's not my favorite. I preferred the old one (which I obviously haven't stated by now). This happens a lot; it happened to the submit page, it's happening to the layout. Things are shoved on us, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse.

And things change. Of course they do. The world is changing, the internet is changing. And we have to screw up a few times before we do it right, you know? There's always that old saying, too: if you want something right, do it yourself. Maybe they took that in mind. But for dA, "yourself" counts as our entire community, not just the admins. I think they should have considered about how we would react, which they probably did, or gradually put it on us so that it wouldn't have been so sudden. Do you know how hard it is to have to go on an unexpected hiatus and then come back to a beloved website that's, what, totally changed? It became hard to navigate, hard to find my way around again. But I guess I did it. I mean, you're reading my journal, so I definitely did. Yeah. I wanted a bit of nostalgia, too, so I changed my icon back to the squishy cat. I think I'm gonna stick with that from now on.

I'll get used to it. I know I'm being a bit anti-futurist (is that a thing?) and rejective, and I know the opinions of one person won't change anything, but I just felt like I needed to say this. DeviantART, you're not tumblr, or instagram, or twitter or facebook, and we don't want you to be. We love you just the way you are. You don't need to change.

What are your opinions on the new update?


I'm just evil that way. 0`w'0
