When I browse dA, I expect to see ARTWORK, not random photos of people posing. Photo after photo of people just staring into the camera, or looking dramatically into the distance.
I mean, anyone can stand next to a tree and pose. That doesn't make it ART. There's no thought placed into the photo, no expression.

Randomly posting photos of yourself and then wondering why people don't notice your photos is another thing that bothers me. Leave photo sharing for social networking sites like Facebook. Your facebook friends are more likely to appreciate it than we would - after all, most of us don't know you personally, so what do we care if we see you standing next to the Eiffel Tower? Some big achievement that is.

Bonus complaint: why does dA allow so many groups dedicated to porn? How is that "art"? I understand artistic nude, but dA is no place for porn.

Art is different to everyone, I like oil painting with volume and such. Yes it does get annoying sometimes but thats photography. I know we all want to see art such as digital, Magana/Anime and sometimes traditional but we can't have it our way. Trust me I would have alot more MLP oil painting in my favorites.

Hmm let's go ahead and get all of the arguments out of the way:

If they think it's art than it is art since it's no one's place to define art since it has a different meaning to everyone, kinda like happiness or virtue.

This has already been beaten into the ground so there's really no point in complaining about it.

The line between porn and artistic nudity is very thin and in an extreme grey area, which may be part of the reason there is so much of porn.
