Submitted by - DAS Helper 2
So many people need to hear this
I must share this~<3
1 dA did not do anything due to any complaints..
2 dA did not change anything so we were not able to make it to the front page ( not like you are saying anyway)
3 dA removed the DAS category, so NOONE can submit to it.
4 Before that category was made ( which we did not ask to be made, or ask to be removed) we always submitted to the lit category.
5 It IS lit which is why it is submitted into that category.
6 ALL the secrets sent in are sent in from the many members of the Club.
7 if you think we just make them up and add them. You really do need to seek help.
8 Nothing was changed because of DAS you clown. It was changed because the categories in dA had a make over. a LOT of categories where all changed around.
9 dA has not been in ANY contact with us what so ever. So what ever you are saying means nothing at all. If you dont like it, dont look.
10. WE not dA, but WE contacted dA asking for something to be done so DAS would not be on the front page. They did anything at all.
11 DAS doesnt have ANY control over what goes on the front page. If dA really didnt want it on there. ( which they have no right to do, as its still art no matter what ANYONE says) if people fav a secret, then it makes it to the front page. But ONLY as popular in last 24 hours.. Which HA most of that art sux It is not the popular stuff at all. any body can make it on there. My own personal page makes it on there at lest once a week. Change your settings if you dont like seeing DAS on there. Have it so it only shows the most popular art over the month, or past few months, or most popular. or to the al time most popular. Problem solved, you may only then come across one of the secrets every now and again .
12.. Just dont look at it to start with....
13.. Block us.. Or better yet, seen as you dont like us so much, I will save you the problems of blocking us, and do it for you.
"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
