"WE not dA, but WE contacted dA asking for something to be done so DAS would not be on the front page."
You could keep these off the front page by submitting journals featuring 10 or so secrets, rather than submitting them as regular deviations. You can use the code <img src="image link"> to post an image. For example, the code <img src="www.townoffrisco.com/wp-conten..."> would show a picture of a field when placed in a journal.
Not only would this avoid a lot of headaches, it would also let you let you post more secrets at a time without some of them getting buried behind newer submissions right away, and it would let you group secrets by theme if you wanted.
Who cares how it got to ghe front page? You're overthinking this whole thing because no one is stuffing the DAS secrets down your throat its not like most of the users who post their secrets wrote it for you most of them actually needed to get their secret out to get it off their chests. So I guess what my main thought is get over it. I dont think its a big deal and I dont understand why it is to you.
But if you dont like that the secrets are on the front page dont click on it. There is more art on the front page then there are secrets. One secret on the front page isnt a big deal. Dont make this a big deal when its just another deviant posting something like i'm sure you do as well. Plus about the 'stuffing it down your throat' isnt really true even though you may feel that way(which I dont really understand why you would)
One secret out of 24 pics on the front page isnt really 'cluttering the front page' there is more drawn art daily on the front page then there are DAS so I dont understand your logic behind most of the things you said
Dont get me wrong i agree with some of what you are saying but i can see both sides of this argument mabey if i could still post i would see it differently but i doubt it. I know making the front page is important but i never really thought being on the front page was a big deal i think being on the front page would b cool but i would rather get a DD for something i worked really hard on b/c it means my work is getting around.
I have seen plenty of amazing writers on here get their work around w/ getting daily deviants better then being on the front page I know b/c im watching a few of them but they get by just the same if their work was on the front page and i hav stumbled upon some great stuff by myself. I understand DAS keeps great writers from the front page but amazing works finds a way to get through
