Yah, chair bumpers are often total wankers that aren't worth trying to reason with and can understand parents taking kids to G and PG rated movies, but most kids don't like anything other than those and they get bored and thus - restless during more mature-oriented movies.
Hmm, well I didn't look at the mature filtered ones, but I've seen creepier vore before (especially with pokemon ) it's a fetish I've only known about for a month or two actually, so I'm not sure if its new or if I fortunately dodged it in my first four years of dA
I haven't removed anyone, but I do get a little tired of the ones who are too sensitive to accept critique to the point that they disable comments. Well, that and the drama of course. I'm also tired of random, meaningless polls that have nothing but emoticons in them. I actually don't check my inbox that much anymore, save a few deviants who manage to keep my attention. I mean, beautiful art is beautiful for such a long time before you realize you've been looking at the same thing over again, just under different titles. It obviously applies to me too. Can't draw in varying styles worth crap, so I kinda spare deviant goers the trouble of looking through just another gallery. Well, that's enough outta me.
I like the part "random, meaningless polls that have nothing but emoticons in them" I hate those too I try to make my polls interesting and engaging - but some people ask about the stupidest things in polls
Someone else also said that a gallery was too repetitive and "once you've faved one, you've faved them all" - I agree to an extent, I don't mind deviants doing the same things if it's something I like seeing, but some are so uncreative that they even recycle the same colour schemes, poses, lighting etc
Yeah, not all the deviants I've watched have boring repetitive poses and color schemes and whatnot. There are many that I just love to watch because they can take the same ideas and techniques and make something amazing out them regardless.
Yes, I certainly have stopped watching a few good artists simply because I grew to dislike the person behind the art. I have always had a dislike for arrogance and sometimes these artists are so far up their own arse they can't see anything else but their own shit. What begins to bug me is the endless stream of tutorials and guides and 'news' articals that are just full of crap that they think is vital information for artists who wanna be a as great as they clearly think they are. P-LEASE!
The only thing I feel I can do is to stop watching them because if you post negatively about the artist, their art or anything else, you only end up receiving abuse from the artist and their groupies. Ain't worth the hassle.
Man I couldn't have said it better myself yes, I don't mind tutorials that have actual content to them, but so many are an "If you do this, you can be as awesome as me! like that'll ever happen" I actually won't forget someone posted a news article-tutorial on "How to get popular" - much of it was spooning out the wrong kind of advice too, telling people how to get more views, watchers etc by shameless self-promotion and just watching and faving anyone and anything in order to get more views the user is banned now I think
Oh yes - sadly many are hesitant to critique popular artists, all it takes is one journal-rant and 50 of their watchers are spamming your page with hate mail. I'll admit I've induced that on others before, but for big things like them stealing my art or harassing me first...never for something as trivial as "a comment I didn't agree with"
