People treating DA like ImageShack or some trash heap.

Seriously. Every day I see tons of freshly uploaded game screenshots, YouTube comment screenshots, half-assed photo snapshots... Usually they're thrown into some absurd category, too. "Photography" for a game screenshot showing your cat in "The Sims 3"? Srsly?

I remember the old DeviantART, where people would actually upload good stuff. Or at lest stuff that required some artistic or technical effort on their part. Now it's mostly scribbles (ones I would expect from a seven year old, not somebody seriously interested in becoming an artist), screenshots, lackluster memes that wouldn't make it in the Internet mainstreeam (uploaded as "Text Art" or "Typography" - HELLO, did you read the category description?) and other assorted trash.

I might sound like a geezer... hell, I *know* I sound like a geezer. But for every new artist on DeviantART, there seems to be a hundred talentless hacks who can't even READ, not to mention submit something of value. Sometimes I wonder what's keeping me here, and I think it's mostly the memories of how great it used to be, and the hope that maybe one day I'll see DA return to its status as a #1 online artist community. I know it won't happen, but one can always hope.

Agreed, though DA's reputation is FOREVER TARNISHED WITH THE SONIC, FURRY, OR SOME OTHER WEEABOO-FUEL TALENTLESS FAGGOTRY.

You've had an account for seven months and you're already talking about how things "used to be"?

I've had this account for seven months. I first came here eight years ago - so yes, I think I'm eligible to talk about "how things used to be".

If only someone had thought to complain about this before, we could have put an end to this problem.

Thank you for your innovation.
