    We'd never be able to catch up with the ticket backlog from DA if that happened. ._. I cringe to think how far behind they are over there.

    DA's ticket system is a paper shredder on the other side of their comments box.

    I joined dA over three years ago and all it's really been is a colossal waste of time. I post fairly regularly and have even been lucky enough to get a DD, but so far I have only 347 watchers, and only got watchers when I started practically spamming my submissions through groups in some hopes of being noticed. Over three years and only two people wanting art from me: one wanted to pay in monopoly money and the other just wanted something for free. Uh, no, I need real money that can be used to pay real loans. I still post there out of a vain hope that it'll get better but eh. Another thing is I'm pretty sure my reports just go right into a trashcan or something. Fuck's sake, at least LOOK.
    Also, I can't say I care much for the blatant irl porn being posted on there. Camera phone boners, swinging mudflaps over a sink, and roped-up tits and a ballgag aren't tasteful, I don't care who you are.

    I don't like FA either but at least I get some kind of business there. Hell, it's the only site I post to where I get any business at all. Sigh.

    Summed up my view on both sites. They are popular because they are popular, that's it...! There's no actual logic reason, motive or even a cause for them to have that much access other than running time, and that's a lame excuse to go accepting and treading with 'em >_>;;

    ...Actually don't get me started on this discussion 'w';; With dA being a place where immaturity, the worst kind of, is glorified by the masses, and FA being the personal world of a manchild for an owner, I have a lot of negative stuff to rub out about them... I really hope that WS will get popular as they are on time, by merit.

    Yes, da's mature content guidelines piss me off too. I don't care what they say, "fetish portraits" are porn.

    As for exposure, some people try to excuse them by saying you need to proper market yourself. Sorry but how's that helpful? If i'm gonna have to bust my ass doing that why should I bother doing that on deviantart when I could be spending my time producing stuff or marketing myself on sites with a far larger userbase like tumblr or facebook? Also how does that explain people having much more watchers on furaffinity than on deviantart while seemingly acting the same on both places, and furaffinity having only a fraction of DA's userbase?

    And interestingly enough, out of the artists I checked, the only ones that seem to have a watcher count on DA significantly larger than FA while posting similarly to both sites are artists who couldn't draw decently accurate anatomy if their lives depended on it. Seems to me DA is far more littered with dumb kids drawn to badly drawn sameface anime characters than FA.

    Not if you add a good team on it. Weasyl team arent lazy at all like them! And im sure there are loyal people who love to help you out with it. I srsly see a lot who really dont belong on DA :/ Breaking rules, this and that. Really its to cry for. I think that they see reportings and think "Ah dont overreacting, please!" *hit the delete button and bye bye report* that feeling I have sometimes, since they have already the "Block the person and ignore him/her". This way you dont fix things because those thieves keeps going because they know DA ignore the reportings about them. I already know some people there who are thieves and breaking rules and keep going with it because they know DA dont do anything about it.

    Fun bet. Using only the gaming and religion sections, bet your friend that there's a mindnumbingly idiotic thread on the front page. You'll win everytime.
    The politics board - the dumbest thing I've ever seen on the gaming board (in between the people who enjoy shitting on single player franchises on basis of the fanbases they don't have to interact with and the yahtzee sheep who act as if Nintendo murdered their family) is still leagues above the average discussion that I've seen on the politics board.

    In fact... on the religion board, I actually got someone to prove that evolution is real, using only evidence from the bible.

    DA is made solely for money not for art :U
    If they aren't going to make money doing it they wont.
    Maybe they would deal with those jerks you speak of if you gave the Dev's a few points (ha ha)
