Hey guys, so it looks like my premium membership is about to expire, so thought this might be a good time to open a spot for a small commission in exchange for a premium membership?
The commission will go to a premium membership (including points!) This would be the one scenario that you can get a commission from me using points. Please keep in mind that all the usual commission rules still apply.
As of October 28th my premium membership will run out, and I have decided that I'm not going to renew it. :/
So, why the decision to kill ye olde premium membership? Honestly, for the same reasons I've been ranting about for years now lol. It took me long enough to realize this heh -_-;;
If you take a look at my profile you'll see that I've done my best to adjust the background colors to something more neutral and fitting for artwork. I honestly don't remember if the code I'm using in those custom boxes requires premium membership, but we'll find out soon enough!
It's no secret that I *hate* DA's colors. Despise them. And the fact that they absolutely refuse to even acknowledge this makes it feel that DA is not meant to serve the artists, it's meant to serve a social network under the guise of an art site.
The constant barrage of 'new features' introduced here is, for the most part, are just bells and whistles and quite frankly useless on an art site. It's 'fun' and 'ooh look how fun and cute this is!'. No. It's not what I'm looking for in a website that I originally joined to learn and expand on art.
The bottom line is that it's just not worth it anymore. If the only real reason for having a premium membership (for me) is to make my front page look better - something it should be *regardless* - then it's not worth paying for.
I'm not leaving or anything, and I will still continue to post here as usual. My page will just return to the plain DA colors. If you'd like to view my work on more pleasingly colored websites, I invite you to my other pages. =]
And for the actual social networking stuffFacebook
