Things you're sick of seeing on the dA front page?

So, the Popular section of the front page is an adventure. There is some great art to admire but there will always be stuff you just cannot see why it's popular or you just hate them.

I'll start:

Yaoi: I hate overly obsessive fujoshis as it is but whenever I see crappy Homestuck or Hetalia yaoi artwork as one of the most popular pics of the day and especially the month makes me facepalm.

My Little Pony: Oh boy, this is where I rage it. It seems ANYONE who draws MLP, even the mediocre artists are automatically guaranteed to get a truckload of comments and favourites just because they drew "OMFG VYNIL SCRATCH!11!!111!!!!" Even though the proportions are terrible and the colouring job sucks. I drew two MLP pics and they are WAY more popular than my other work which I am more proud of. Want heaps more fans? Draw pony porn.

Now you!

... I don't quite understand why people complain about the front page, as if they're forced to stare at it :shrug: If you're looking for a certain type of art to enjoy, browse that gallery. Of course current trends are going to be on the front page, because the front page merely reflects what is currently popular :lol:

If I don't like what's on my front page, I change my front page until I like what I see.

Then look at something else.
I am not sick, but am pretty bored by listening to complains about the front page.
So enjoy \o\

Pretty much everything, so I avoid it :P

I find my good stuff through favs of favs, and my inbox.

I donīt look at the front page anymore. I like to scroll the newest section. More diversity there.

Change your settings to seeing the newest uploads then. You'll still probably see things you'll hate, but at least you'll only have to see it for a little while.

Yeah, I don't really like anime pictures that go beyond PG13, and the MLP stuff is irritating, but after having seen it complained about for a good few months, it's just like "Hey, I'm not the only one. Time to move on."

Other than that, I hate seeing screen caps and traces ... :P

I hate seeing anime in the front page. But overall I just hate seeing crappy artwork being popular just because whoever made it has a bunch of followers.

MLP pics does not guaranteed to get a truckload of comments and favourites . I have made a small amount of MLP art and they don't get as much attention as any of my other art. The artwork that I do have that is over 100 faves are mostly nonfanart. I think I only have one fanart that is over 100 and that is Dr. Who.

As for the front page, I don't sick of anything on it. If I go to the front page, I check out the things I like and ignore the things I don't care much about. I also don't visit the front page very much.

You've got gay pictures in your favorites, even specifically of that crappy homestuck thing. Why would you be bothered by stuff you fanboy over yourself?

Same thing with the MLP stuff--if you fanboy over it enough to draw it, why be mad about it being popular?

I don't set my front page to most popular, I set it to newest. That way I see new art every time I see the page. There's nothing that really annoys me because I don't have to look at anything more than once. I guess it'd be nice if there were less motivational posters and screenshots though.

Quotes, or at least quote deviations that took no time to make.
But before MLP, Hetalia, and Homestuck, dA's front page was usually full of similar subjected deviations that got annoying to see week after week like Converse photos and Sonic fanart. It seems inevitable for the front page to be like this for some reason.

So... you hate yaoi pictures (or boys-love, whatever it's called) being all over front page. This type of artwork is obviously meant for a more female than male audience.

However, looking through your gallery (which isn't bad, just a bit... odd), I find that there are a bunch of half-naked (in the sense they have very few amount of coverage from their clothes) females from various video games and shows. Yet this (artwork for a more male than female audience) is completely okay?

You're complaining about the My Little Pony art being on the front page, yet you have artwork that you have made yourself from the fandom and have placed it in your "Old But Great" folder. So, you must have liked it at some point, right?

The reason why these artworks, either original or fan-made, are popular is because a lot of people do like them. If you don't then you could always just ignore it. Making a post on the forum about it is not only immature, but also slightly rude.

(Although you are of course allowed your own personal opinions on things - I just think posting about it is kind of asking for a fight.)

The bottom one is a BIT hyporcritical ;p It's like someone standing there with a fresh baked pie asking loudly why so many people bake so many goddamned pies.

Anyway, I don't look at the front page. If I want to see good art, I'll watch juried groups.
