Years ago, I was introduced to the deviantart community. Now it's been 4 years since I'm a member, and with every year I like it less, despite their constant aim to make it better. I don't regret being on it; in fact, it was a great opportunity to improve myself as an artist, and I've met a few people a long the way, that I feel close to. But it seems like dA is becoming a social community like myspace or facebook for that matter. And in these 4 years many people I came to know, left the site. Why? Because they didn't get the attention they deserved. Comments have become such a rarity, it's easier to favourite a work and move on. And the only comments you'll get on your profile page will go something like this: "Thank you for favourite!!! (accompanied by a few or a group of happy smileys). Feel free to check the rest of my gallery." Well, okay, why should I? When you don't even bother to view through mine and I don't believe that amongst 500 deviations that I have, you can't find one that would be to your liking. Eh, I've been complaining about this for a while, and it hasn't changed. What are your experiences with dA?!
Most of my friends that left dA joined Flickr instead, and I've heard a lot of praise about it. I haven't tried it though, since it's only photography oriented, and I write poems and draw as well. Anyway, they've been saying that you get more comments and not just "I like it. That's cute.", but comments with more depth. What are your experiences with flickr?
I found weheartit, because someone added (hearted) one of my photos to it, and I found it interesting. Basically, it's people hearting photos they like from different sites, like flickr and tumblr. There's a lot, really a lot of things on there, but you can find some inspirational photographs or quotes.
