No complaints

I just want to give praise to this portion of Live Journal’s Artists Beware. So I’ll understand if this message is relocated or moved or whatever. I’m not only learning a lot from everyone’s experience and triumphs, but a better level respect for artists even if I am not one. You would think a place like DA would allow this feedback and advice without scrutiny – and maybe they do, but not as efficient. If only I discovered this site earlier and under better circumstances, but hey here I am and have no regrets. Keep doing what you are doing. You affect more people than you think. Thank You.

dA is unfortunately too big for such a service to operate on, and many other sites have personal issues with such organisations. More than one artist has flipped out at the idea of a community that functions as a Better business Bureau for artists.

I'm glad your time here has been productive. :)

Heh. I raised a complaint on the DA forums nearly four years ago, and I'm still getting hate mail from it. I very seldom post art there for this reason.

You forgot the billions of people posting

Kawai, I can use yor arts on my website for free ye?

There's still plenty of nice types on dA, they're just harder to find than in the past.

It is SO WEIRD how many people I meet who joined dA in '03! So many of my friends I recently met did, and I did. It's just weird to me. D: I've noticed it more than any other year.
I wonder why that is.

Pretty offtopic comment, I just wanted to make an observation. >.>

mmm.... 2003 was a good year for furry. S'when I finally sacked up and started posting my crap online. XD

It was the year I discovered what furry WAS. Then I was like, "I would really like to draw humans, but I can only draw animals and THIS IS A GOOD COMPRIMISE".
I actually haven't changed my dA name ever, so all my first art is still on there. XD Most of it is in storage now because I'm way embarrassed by how I used to type. >.>

One of my friends made me join DA so I would stop sending her pictures over MSN.

In 2003.

Lol I joined in '03 to.. I was just a little bud back then, even worse then I am now. It was a good year to be on DA |D
So many good artists popping around to inspire others.

Dude. YES. Those were good days. 2003 - 2004 were fun... and in 2005, some elitist shit went down, and it just wasn't fun any more. I get sick of the people who have a hate boner for furries -who come and bother me on DA. It's so dumb, I mean... I don't have a single piece of gross/fappy/emogoth art on my site... I just like drawing cartoon animals for pete's sake.

At least at FA there's a bit of a safe haven from the furry bashing. It's not a very good trade, what with all the creeps and typefuckers out there. o_O You couldn't pay me to draw a bunch of porn and post it there. No way. I get enough creepy fanboys without drawing porn.

i was referring to the forums realy, which i thought contained a section for warning about art theft and other bad behaviours

you can click on the forum link, though i assume you have done already, or click here http://forums.furaffinity.net

i think i was thinking of furbid though
