(KUWT page coming up soon; feeling better, just need to finish the last two panels. One needs to be colored, another is very simple to draw in. Sorry for the delays.)
dA has been on a roll lately with stressing the need that we are apart of a large and united art community. I think that's true. Whether you draw with the intent to improve, or just draw for the simple basis of fun, you're here because deviantArt is quite a lucrative place to go to make friends, find others who share your interests, or make contacts with others who share your skills, among all sorts of reasons.
This new Core thing.. I'll preface by saying I have a headache unrelated to this whole thing. I didn't sleep well last night. I woke up and found journals, petitions, polls, all discussing this Core thing. My friend had to explain it to me for a bit for me to really get it.
If we don't like something, especially with how large this site is compared to most, I feel we have every right to complain. I visited the deviantArt forums and, lo and behold, tons of threads denouncing the sudden changes.
What pisses me off, is that going there feels essentially worthless. You're not supposed to go there to complain about people complaining, you're not supposed to be going there to show off your latest penis webcam or your Adventure Time rule 34. Unfortunately that looks like it has boiled down to in at least several threads. First comes the legit complaints from people who take this matter very seriously, but three posts in, now they're whoring out their artwork, and people essentially fucking around.
...Now I can see why a lot of folks have considered leaving. Sadly my business relies on posting on deviantArt, so I'm stuck here. However if push comes to shove, moving permanently to Comic-Fury for KUWT doesn't sound like a bad idea.
