It's so irritating when I come to see my deviantWATCH messages and I find stuff like this: [link]
And she's not he only one, there's hundred of other people posting that kind of things here!
The first question that comes to my mind is WHY THE HELL SHE POST THAT IN HERE???? The site says CLEARLY "community of artists and those devoted to art" not "community of puerile people anxious for show what they buy on internet".
"Deviantart: Where ART meets application!" Jesus, it's the first line that appears when you type DEVIANTART in Google!!
I'm sorry, but I feel very offended when I see that kind of abuses. I want to share my artwork with people, and I want to see other people's artwork; but I DON'T want to see other people's puerilities. That's disrespectful to me, and disrespectful to all the people who makes an effort to create something.
I've see some funny pics with toys and that's fine, some photos are very creative, but it's different to just take a photo and type "this is my new t-shirt". The fact that a shirt may include an illustration is NOT a reason enough for post it in here (if it's not a personal design, of course).
One guy wrote a comment there, exposing this point (well, he made it in a diplomatic way, unlike me), but obviously this lady took it bad, since the comment was removed. That's the worst part, the people feels offended when you mention the subject. And it's exactly for that obnoxious and obtuse attitude that I'm writing this.
There's hundred, maybe thousands of websites out there, where ordinary people can post pics of trivialities: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Myspace, Google+ , you name it, there's a LOT of options, but this a community especially created for artist, a comunity of CREATIVE PEOPLE. It's SO sad when you recomend this website to other people and they say "Deviantart is for artist, really? I thought it was like facebook!".
NO, ladies and gentleman, Deviantart is NOT like fuk*ing facebook.
So, people, PLEASE, stop uploading trash to deviantart, don't destroy this website.
And just for make it clear, I have nothing against social networks, there's nothing wrong with having a facebook nor twitter. But there's a place for every thing, there's no need to mess a website.
