Bullet; Black 1 - What would make you want to leave DeviantART?
- most the great inspiring artists here are gone and the one having good name/making good art are nothing more than overpopular people who draw arts and never take care of their fans and followers and dA even support them instead of giving more exposure to the artists who are not known but having great potential in art.
Also in my case I have major difficulties to get commissions for years. I've despairingly tried to make commission advertisements however, with out any success. I cannot keep up my account if it keeps going and the audience isn't that much than it used to be years ago. I still cannot believe this but deviantART is about to die because the little artists won't get any exposure.
Also, to my fault, I have the feeling that I don't belong here anymore - as often I gave my kindness to the internet world. The same with art. I might have quite an unusual art and coloring style and there's the problem. It seems that they don't care for any something different.

Bullet; Black 2 - If you left DeviantART would you leave your account open here or close it?
- Hmm, that's a good question. I guess I'd let it open but put all of my stuff into storage. I might check out here if I find pretty art or having contact with other fellow dA-members

Bullet; Black 3 - Where else would you go on the Internet if you left DeviantART?
- Maybe on Twitter or another good art site. 
Because Tumblr is too confusing with their layout and messaging system, Facebook is only spying on people and Instagram you see only stupid people with their stupid photos of theirself (or art thefts)

1- What would make you want to leave DeviantART?

 If I get creatively bankrupt (which happens often), or just not feeling it anymore (Which also happens often). Something shit would really need to go down though for me to permanently leave

2 - If you left DeviantART would you leave your account open here or close it?

 Since this is like my online art portfolio I rather leave it open

 
3 - Where else would you go on the Internet if you left DeviantART?

Maybe instagram? Not really sure since I'm not really one to pertake in social media. Probably would go to Artstation if my art was way better

- I sometimes do consider leaving; I don't feel like I belong in a place of creativity.
- I would probably choose to close my account completely, to remove all temptation of coming back.
- Probably Facebook or something.

"I don't feel like I belong in a place of creativity."

Aww, you're just going through a difficult time creatively right now. It happens to many people here. Things will turn around, they usually do. :aww:

1) If I truly feel like my art isn't worth anyone's time and give up art... I mean that seems a little drastic, but this is an ART website... I don't feel comfortable posting to other forms of social media... 
2) If I would leave I would probably take everything down... No use if nobody cares... 
3) I honestly wouldn't go anywhere, I'll most likely spend more time in actual galleries and make art for them then... Even if it would take me signing my life and soul to them... 8[

I’ve been strongly considering leaving for a while. I think there’s a lot of toxicity here that I could do without in my life. I got rid of Facebook for that reason and it actually improved my life quite a bit. Although I had to rejoin and got sucked back into bad habits immediately. It’s legit like a drug. 

I also think this place is a massive waste of time. Like it just consumes time. Very little of my time invested has any reward here. There are some decent people so it’s not all bad...

I haven’t decided if I’ll leave my account open... I know no one would notice. To break the habit I’d probably have to deactivate though.

Maybe too it’s that I get older and the average age of people here seems to stay the same.

It probably depends on if she asks other people to go somewhere else with her.

If she just left, other people probably wouldn't also just leave simply because she did.

But... would they be considered Lemmings if they did? Or maybe ducks and geese have some weird form of mind control that makes them natural leaders?

1. Personal issues, stress, or no interest.
2. I'd leave my account open, and leave my art up.
3. Somewhere else besides here.

1 - Boredom.  Lack of interest.
2 - Nope, close it.  And delete all of my art.  The only time by account would stay open and art up is if I forgot my account password and couldn't there remove everything.
3 - Youtube, I dunno.  Anywhere, although I suppose I wouldn't post art online anymore.  But I'd still draw.

1. Gut feeling, the need to move on. Forums closing would be an easy out though. Nothing kept me at Myspace after their forums went down and though Cryptid Creations is fun, Deviantart isn't the only site to host their art.
2. Likely leave it open. I'm not keen on deleting things.
3. 4chan, Youtube, reddit, Wikipedia.
