:iconsanguisgelidus: abuses the new system, it's stupid they made a petition against it.
Go look through their gallery and see some of the stupidest categories they put their art into.

But if people are abusing the new system then what good is the system? I mean, sure, it irritates me tons that I wasn't on the front and that my artwork doesn't get many views, but thats what everybody goes through right?
I try and put my art in the right category and theres so many! :eyepopping: but I think I got them right :P

Sudden thought:
Oh wait.... Gimme a second why I go make sure O.O I think I put a couple in the wrong

One thing is that people often put the same things in different categories. Anime fan art would go under fan art and anime, but other times, just anime- whatever media

I think there should be fewer categories in general. I know what kind of art I like, but I can never find ANY category that houses everything that I'd like to see. People categorize in such varried ways that I feel like sorting them is pointless because no section has similar works in it anymore. ):

I like the idea DA had of fair exposure, but too many people were mis-categorizing and... tbh designs and interfaces is the main mis-cat right now, used to be visual poetry <_<
It's really annoying, because people do, as the person said, spend hours on pictures that never get the attention they deserve, possibly because of people abusing the fair exposure policy for less popular categories ...
it's just, really unfair.

I think he definitely has a point. While the new system is a good idea, people are abusing the hell out of it to get on the front page. If he can do it with that deviation, it's obvious that any one can play the system, and I think a lot of people do.

i do not agree with him at all.
the new system is designed to let more categories make it to the front page.
and beacuse of this, we have idiots everywhere abusing the system and submitting to categories shit doesn't belong to.
i'm sorry, but they way they refute this is super childish.

the new system is a great way for all forms or art to make it to the front page, and not just anime art like it always has.
everytime the dA staff tries to make a new improvement, everyone is butthurt over it. they were complaining about the old system, and will continue to complain about any new system that dA releases for the front page.
do people honestly forget that on the left side you can browse the category YOU want to see????
it's immature.

People were always whining about the front page when it was the older system, but it's like they don't understand that it's very hard to make a "fair way" for these things. :P People need to give the dA staff a break.

If they want to get onto the front page, they just have to work harder, get fans and get popular. Sounds douchy when I say it like that, but it's the truth. I've never been on the front page, but I never whine about the people who do.

Now we have this silly new system which people take advantage of.

D-n-h

I never even looked at the popular page in the first place. Too many of the same people kept popping up there and even now I catch a glimpse of it and it's still a lot of the same people, some of which are on my watch list. Besides, good artists don't always get popular anyway.

Well i do believe somethign is wrong with DA when people who try and struggle to be good get no attention while people who ONLY COLOR ART get like 100+ faves within a day....

I know a friend who colored a pony lineart..nothing special.got flooded with comments and faves in a day.

Excuse me, but coloring is not easy to do right, your comment is most insulting. Don't lash out at good colorists because you fail to do either aspect of the artwork well. The disrespect on this site sometimes...

...I did not mean to sound rude. I know that coloring is not an easy task. I know this since i color my own art. But coloring a line art with flat colors,is easy.And quickly done.

In most cases it is. I never meant to sound too rude.

Sorry if you felt offended

My fault. I am not good with wording when a bit upset. I am already used to me banging my head against walls due ...failure of wording.

It is just...to color a tiny pony is not original . Other people work on their art for hours if not even days. I am struggling to improve with each day and get no attention,how to improve without feedback,kinda hard ^^'


It is okay that you snapped..i did sound rude again ..sorry ><'

I don't really bother with the frontpage, at all. Although I'd like to know if it chooses which search results are 'popular' based on the same criteria.

This system sounds good in theory, and would be, if people didn't abuse it.

I never realised this. The frontpage is what you see when directly going to deviantart.com?
For me it shows just the same good quality stuff if that is the front page. It's based on pupularity of all time. Ofcourse you can change it but i never seen something that wouldnt deserve being there. So i wonder wether or not that is the frontpage xD

I really don't agree with this, I honestly don't think people of DA should strive only to 'be on the front page'.

I have no qualms with the new system, its actually shown me a few very talented and lesser known artists that are skilled in many different things. After a while it had gotten to only being a top 10 artists making the front page over and over, and now its expanded.

They bring up a good point. Not many people get noticed anymore if they do the best work they have.

I give my all when I write and it hurts me to not get as many reviews as I want. I'm not bashing on the "I like this" people or those whom say "I love this. It's well written." I want an actual review, not just a comment on how good it is! :icontableflipplz:

ARGH!

Not surprised since =roseonthegrey has written a journal explaining how the category system works here.

I do believe that dA at least try to make a system that works for everyone but I guess it's difficult to do for ... goodness knows how many members there are on this site (and the rate of artwork being uploaded) versus those who'd exploit the system. Hopefully things will change for the better!
