YES! Another journal! It's been like... a month since the last one! I was going to do something along the lines as a life update, but that would be pretty mundane, wouldn't you think? Without any further ado, let's get onto the topic at hand. DeviantArt's new layout.

To put it bluntly, it sucks. For those of you who don't know, I'm in college and am currently under the graphic arts program. I learn various forms of art, and how to make a piece look nice. The irony of this situation is that DeviantArt has made a very stupid decision with this layout change. It's ugly. I know that art comes in many different forms, but please take it from someone who is a YouTube user: This layout is very unappealing, confusing, and downright jarring.

I can see where the effort was put, but it was put in the wrong place. DeviantArt is supposed to be an art site, with emphasis on the art, rather than an mmo website. Please stop focusing on the premium members and the shop, rather than the art. If 'art' is in the name of your website, then PLEASE be dedicated to that trait, while occasionally giving a few presents to the users of the community. Premium members get one thing, non-subscription users get another with a reasonable limit, both get a few usable features; everybody wins.

Please stop trying to be like tumblr or facebook. Tumblr may be an interesting site, but DeviantArt is supposed to be like an online portfolio. We put our art (no matter what form) into our galleries for people to see, not make statuses every five minutes like the average teenager.

I came to this site as an aspiring artist at the age of thirteen or so, wanting to be as great as sakimichan or yuumei one day. DeviantArt is supposed to be the site "where art meets application", not where we can constantly talk with our friends via statuses.

People objected the silly new features you added to the site; like the, changing "Favorites" on the star tab to "Faves", adding the "More Like This" feature, or even getting dA Muro. I accepted those features with open arms, knowing that they added to the site's potiential... other than changing "Favorites" to "Faves", I'm guessing you guys were trying to save on space or something...

All of that aside, I'm trying to covey to you guys that DeviantArt's new layout is not the best idea; it's actually one of the worst ones yet. As someone who has been on YouTube since 2005, this should open some of your eyes.

I bid thee all farewell, and apologize for the lack of a new addition to my gallery today. I shall double up on submissions for tomorrow (10/17/2014).
