You're damn right I'm disappointed in your punk ass. 3 years and not a single deviation. GTFO! Where do you get off judging what is art and what isn't, what has value and what doesn't. You don't like it, then do us all a favor and leave.
OK. Here we have a nice Italian lady who is concerned about the devolution of this organization and its standards, and although she is not ideally conversant in English she still steps forward and tries to help. She is promptly eviscerated on this page, including by some who lack either the knowledge or courtesy (or both) to even use proper grammar in stating their position - and who are native English speakers. I guess it's true: no good deed ever goes unpunished.
Hahahaha. Oh god, this is a joke. Right? deviantART will never be precisely based on art quality. Shit gets (sometimes) removed when they go against the rules (such as Copyright violations and porn, in example).
Instead wasting your time on trying to change a website you can go to groups for specific artwork, stop looking at the frontpage or get off and go to some site for such purpose. Wouldn't that be more easier, eh?
The site has always been a bit crap. I've been here technically for 9 years and I was one of the shit artists and I have improved by shit tons. dA is not a very serious art site. It is a handy tool to showcase but if you want a more serious art site, like everyone else has said, go to Concept Art.
As deviantART grows and more people use it, there will inevitably be more submissions from amateur/beginner/hobbyist artists. Those people have as much right to be here and share their work as professional/experienced artists do. dA does not and has never prevented submissions based on a perceived lack of quality - if that's what you're looking for in an art site, perhaps you'd be happier elsewhere
Take an eye about this: if this thread don't would talking about this precise argument, I would deleting the thread because of your reactions. And it was sufficient 10 yours comments.. Why don't you explain your sensation in mass like here also under the photos? Also good sensations, also bad sensations. It works, but LOL, you, in mass, are acting only in this thread... When you also are complaining on the quality of the web site! It is counterproducing mean this thread like a MY problem, only because I'm no one, I'm a woman, I'm italian, I've used excited tones, I've shaken the situation in which you can moan all the time without act (like polytics), I've pretended to be the heroes that save the world, etc. You can be impartial/objective and productive also for your own purpose? No, too difficult.
It's been the same way for the 7 and a half years I've been on here. Only it used to be bad point-and-shoot photos; now it's smart phones because they're more widely used. The anime, furries, woofs, cosplays, and fanart have always been here too.
Why don't you, instead of blaming everyone else, do something about it? Report things that are mis-categorized or that use copyrighted content. Promote great art in journal features and on the thumbshare forum, and by commenting and favoriting artwork you think fit your idea of a deviantART renaissance.
Yes but I'm alone in this. My contribute is null AND I've no background in this website (then I've no authority, I've discovered this stupid thing about the americans only today, sorry for the delay). If all the community wants the quality couldn't begin angry with ME, only because I've shake their limbo, where they can moan without act. Exactly like people with polytics and others things in where a mass exist. And I've suggested simply things, but since, here, I'm the "enemy" and I'm no one, this things appears the biggest stupid things on the web site. When also them are daily moaning about the quality of the web site. It is so stupid that I can almost believe in this, lol.
Logically, people think in mass, this is the result as you can see. But we need to act in mass, or obliviously ALL the actions are useless. If ALL would act as you've said, the difference comes.
I talk about bad art in the posts, and I've make a difference from "bad art" and social network photos. If you make this answers, you didn't read all obliviously. I've said that I don't want to report a sketch made by Paint because maybe the creator has good intentions and is proud of his work. But social-network-photos aren't art also for the creators.
