Community? There's a community for real? :D Wow, I must've become quite out of touch with dA then.

I do fav stuff and my stuff gets faved by people sometimes. However, practically nobody reads / reacts to my journals -- and I rarely comment on others' journals myself, in turn. Even though I used to be a fan of meaningful commenting (you know, the kind that says more than "wowow that's cool!"), nowadays I barely write or get any comments. Don't think the latter is the result of the former, though: I only stopped active commenting a while after active responses to my comments dried up. People (whom I "know" these days here) mostly just fav... and move on.

Guess I've got myself to blame as well, but I don't really see how all these new features would bring me and others like me closer to "the community". People who are social butterflies and/or trending, popular artists will receive just as much attention as they have before the update, while recluses like what I've become will stay off most everyone's radar.

Btw, most of my old dA friends (artists) left around the time when dA started becoming a dump site for low quality doodles, terrible selfies, and soft porn disguised as art, changing from being a "community of artists" into a "social site where you can post whatever you consider art." Don't get me wrong, there's still a lot of awesome art pieces and artists around... but the ratio of quality stuff vs errr... let's just say "stuff" has gone through a rather disappointing shift.

Sorry about the rant, mind you. Just venting some steam after a long day (week, month.) Why have you read it this far, btw? You should've just moved on. Like everyone else.

:shrug: :ninja:
