With so many artists (new and old) and a great deal of new art being posted every day why is a piece of work that is over 3 years old getting a DD now??

[link]

I understand the 6 month DD rule but why is there no rule in place for something that is "outdated" and has been viewed several hundred times?? Is a DD being based on the number of recent views?


DA fail with this one.

... a piece of art outdated?...did you even just say that!? We should just toss out everything in the Louvre then since it's older than three years right? Educate yourself on matters like these before running off to complain about them. All the information about DDs, how they're chosen, and the rules that are applicable can be found in the faq's which are at the bottom of every page here on dA.

:lol: yes , might as well shut down all museums if we're concerned about a piece of art's born-on-date.  Maybe the OP was thinking about beer.

With how much crap that's on this site do you expect every DD to be from this year?

Just because something is "old" doesn't mean it shouldn't get recognition :P I have some older work I like better than my newer work and I'd hope others wouldn't over look my older stuff :)

It's more like if someone sends in a DD for the piece and dA liked the idea, they do it. People send in DDs for the oldest and most viewed pieces all the time. It's a shame when someone who is new and amazing do not get that chance.

Heck , why not just delete everything off the dA servers after a certain period of time? Everybody knows that art becomes ancient and spoils and grows fungus a year after being made.

You should check out FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen? for some info, and if you have a question about why something specific was featured, you could always politely note the person who featured it.

Works of art never goes out of date. Just because a picture, painting of drawing haven't been "discovered" within a few month, shouldn't mean it's gonna be lost forever in the vast world of dA's huge memory bank. There are a huge number of unseen, undiscovered gems out there, some years old.
Unfortunately, most of them are probably never going to recieve a DD. However, there are other ways to present an artist, if that is what you want. Journal features, comments, groups etc...

Being old should not really matter when it come to DDs. There are some really old art that people have done that are really great. One of my old animation that I did in college had gotten a DD

I don't complain about it and it is still one of my favorite animations I have done.

There is no rule on it, but most Community Volunteers prefer to feature newer works. If you think newer works should get it see what you can do about it here FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen? :dummy:

When you have a complaint about Daily Deviations see FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?

DDs are just features. How does an outstanding piece of art become less outstanding after 3 years? Should the Mona Lisa, The Scream and other artwork be stopped from being showcased around the world just because they're older? :shrug:

I actually can take this. DD's are supposed to be used to acknowledge artists. I don't think it'd really matter if it's outdated. It doesn't matter to me, it's pretty good art. It deserves the DD anyway. :shrug:
