truely i have now idea what the difference is between the previous and the new front page....Im as confused as the next guy and i tryed to use the search bar and it seemed alright, i did notice the "newest" and "popular" search options..but i don't see that being an issue with competitive compatition between artist? explain in summary if you will? ^^;

I didn't even notice until someone pointed it out, to be honest- but I suppose it's kind of nice to be able to see stuff from the less-appreciated categories. Doesn't seem a whole lot different to me, though- still lots of unimpressive deviations there haha.

I don't really know how the new one works, but it was kind of annoying to see random scraps on the front page from really popular artists, I'm not going to point fingers, but sometimes an artist will jokingly post something that they themselves don't really even intend to be on the front page, it just gets on the front page because of their watchers.

And also, I've seen way too many talented artists give up on this site not because their art sucked but because people never saw their work.

Again, I don't know how the new one works so maybe the old one was better.

I'm neutral on it. I like the idea behind it, but I think it should be cleaned up of all the bugs (which is making me not really like it that much).

=( Well shoot.. yeah, I don't like this change. I would be horrified if my art was to randomly pop up on the front page at some point.. because my art does not need to be there at this point. Maybe if they made a separate page that put random submissions up and kept the "popular" page.. then people could choose between the two (or three counting the "newest" page)

One one side it's great cause it gives the chance too other people to get known, cause like everyone only looks at the ''popular'' page.
But on the other side, it's nice to see the REALLY EXTREME GOOD works, cause in my case I learn from them.

So yeah. that's what I think. They should do. One week the popular and the other week the newest. So it's fair for everyone. ^^

Apparently so. I don't really mind if they're just nudes, it's that they're always just some naked girl bent over in front of the camera in a provocative pose and featured in groups like "SexyVoluptuousLadies" or "BigBooties". I don't come here to see porno shoots :/

Agree! When this whole thing was going on, I actually avoided going
to the front page to avoid all those nudes in case any other
family member was around and thinking I was on a porno site...

Well then... I don't like it, I liked to see some of the more popular artists there... that's hwy it's named popular right?
Good for the not so known artists, but I don't browse anymore, so it doesn't change much for them?

I hate that every time I open dA up now, the front page is littered with artistic nudes! I mean, I'm all for artistic expression and stuff, but I myself don't search for that kind of art, don't ever touch that general category, and frankly I don't appreciate these pictures of nude women on my front page all day. At least with the old system it showed popular (and therefore generally more tasteful) pictures, nudes or not. Now it's just a humdrum with whatever naked women or girls the pornographic category offers up! Again, I have nothing against artistic expression, but maybe keep certain categories out of this randomized system, hmm? At least those best left to the browser's individual tastes.

Well that explains why I keep getting porn on my front page (there's a difference between porn and art. Poorly shot pictures of boobs is not art).

Honestly I see a lot less art of interest on the front page now - to the point where I haven't bothered looking for the last couple of days. If I'm doing that I can't be the only one, and thats not helping any artists.

I don't see anything wrong with it. In fact, I prefer it this way. I think a randomized system is the only way to be fair. I have seen a lot of good art go up on the front page since it's been like this, along with some art I don't really appreciate. But you know, it was the exact same thing when the front page was filled with people who "earned" their way. Which I don't really like that school of thinking at all. That implies that there's only thirty or so people on dA who have "earned" their spots. And that's simply not true. A lot of art goes completely unnoticed just because it's abstract, or the artist doesn't have many watchers. I'm sick of seeing the same damn people on the front page ALL THE TIME. A lot of those people I watch myself and I love them and their art, but no offense, I really don't think that alexiuss, and nheira, and chibibakaneko deserve it over everyone and anybody else again... and again... and again... and again. I watch them for this very reason. I don't need to see them on the front page every single day. I like seeing diversity.

If the front page is only supposed to be filled with the "best" art, then what the hell is dA for? It's not like all those people who do beautiful work came out of the womb this way. If you think something looks less aesthetically pleasing or less professional, then hey, why don't you offer that person a critique or a helpful hint? I thought that's what this site was about. Not just myspace for artists.

Agree with some of teh things you sais (well almost all :3) But I'd prefer it if there was another option like "Newest".
So maybe something like "Most Popular" "Newest" and the thing we have now (and I don't know how to call it ^^")

That way everybody would have the settings he liked. *shrugs*
