This is for Deviantart, a little letter like thing that I feel I need to write.
We are artists, some of us aren't, but either way, we appreciate art and that's what this place is for. People that come here, aren't your run of the mill lemming that chokes down the trending social media pay me fests. People that come here, want something different than that garbage that everyone else has. Deviantart had charm, it had personality, originality and it was an individual amongst a wave of horrible ideas and marketing ploys. Yes, we here at Deviantart who create art would love to stay connected to the people who watch us and to stay connected to the people we watch but if we need anything more than what Deviantart has to offer, we head elsewhere like Facebook or Twitter or Tumblr or whatever floats your goat. That shouldn't make you want to add any of their things here because we loved Deviantart for what it was and had other tools for other needs. With you trying to turn this into another social media shit hole, I have a feeling you're going to lose a lot of users and you are going to lose what made Deviantart so special. Lastly, I know you won't read this, you don't read what us simple artists have to say about your changes when it goes against what you want, you have your own agenda and your own ideas on what we here want. That's ok if this were a place like Facebook where its damn near impossible to get feedback on change, but here, here there is a way to do that and when we speak you don't listen. For once Deviantart, I want you to buck up and admit when you've done something wrong that the people who use your site don't like and give us what we want to see.
