... I don't quite understand why people complain about the front page, as if they're forced to stare at it 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
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 ...
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.)
Yush! \o\ I used to do but then whenever I tried that in skype, it used a weird emote that made me freak out so now I am used to this one Also, I has a comment of other works op may want to browse. \o\ As usual.
