I am sooo tired of all those shitty pictures on dA, I mean my pictures aren't the best the world has ever seen either, but what's it with all those people who post nude pics of themselves? And I don't mean act photography, that can be quite tasteful, but the I'll-just-spread-my-legs-and-take-a-pic-of-myself-down-there or I-shove-my-boobs-in-everyone's-face?
I seriously don't care about the mature content filter. I turned it off because the not visible thumbnails are just as annoying. And because some of the mature pictures are actually pretty good.
What's bugging me is, that deviantArt is supposed to be an art site, right? At least that's what I thoguht when I signed up. And I switched from seeing the newest deviations to seeing the most popular every day, because then some of the really bad pictures get filtered out. Some. Not all. Not even most of them. I wonder what is happening to dA. Have a look at the front page and you'll mostly see pictures of boobs and naked women, quick shot self-portraits without any purpose but big boobs.. You will see primitive pictures under the label of cosplay or expressive portraits.
I am so, so, so tired of having to look for hours and finding only 2 or 3 artsy pictures.
dA is not myspace, for God's sake.
This: [link] is art
This: [link] is not
And these are just examples. I don't even wanna count all the butt holes and vaginas and penisses I've seen unwillingly, or how many pictures I've seen that I wouldn't post anywhere but my personal album, wouldn't even post on facebook for the public.
Private picturea are for private use. And art shouldn't be abused to show off private parts and get site views and comments or just to appear on the front page. This isn't the place to boost your ego with shitty pictures, please. This is a place to boost your ego because you create art and it turns out good, because you put effort into your pictures and people like it.
This is an ART site, not myspace of facebook or some other social network.
Excuse my rant.
