Remember the poll
? You have saved not one but two
will continue to exist on DeviantArt as a two Plz accounts. Hey, I haven't precised which of my DeviantArt account(s) I wanted to delete!
Okay, jokes aside. I had few reasons to create such a nettlesome poll (I hope none of you had a hearth attack or something, ya know, it's just the internet) and I wanted to make it as vague as I could to get the certain respond. Althrough you got the standard cookie option as a little hint that the poll isn't talking about serious matter (only about forgotten Plz accounts I did ages ago and that simply 'spam' this site now).
First of all I was curious what kind of feedback I will get in return. How people will perceive this issue? What is DeviantArt to them? Where my account places on this site, from their point of view? Frankly, I expected that few people will ask if the poll applies to themselves - as if I asked what they
will do with their accounts. It seems that you interpreted this in the most obvious way - it was me
who asked you what should I do.
Second, I wanted to see the relative number of people being still interested in participating in polls. It may be rude to make a small drama just to see how much people are still sticking around with me and with my art. But I belive this was a better idea than just simply asking "how many of you are still reading my stuff?". I understand some may be not interested in polls and journals. That's all fine. Yet, I was curious of the results.
Third. DeviantArt indeed makes more and more tiresome decisions and updates. The site is not the same site I joined 5 years ago. Sure, there are good sides of all those updates. But there are a lot more not-so good things now. That said, there is no reason (yet) for me to simply leave DeviantArt. This is my main gallery, and even if I'm more active on Tumblr
, this is still my "main base", with all, more important, artwork displayed. I don't know what would have to happen here to make me leave the site at once. Belive me, I would give you a proper information if that happened.
I'm actually suprised of the, quite postive, respond to the poll. Moreover, seeing some replies, it makes me feel kind of ashamed for making such agitation, to some of you, just for my measly sellfish reasons. There were also few replies that were pretty clever and few that and made me think of further improving inter-communication between all of my accounts as there are people that still don't know I'm posting my art at other places as well. Certainly, all the comments were interesting to read. I haven't reply to them (or at least tried to not to reply) as I didn't want to give you more clues.
In the end, your respond is hearthwarming and I'm thankful that there are people who do like my work and do like to be updated whenever I post something new. And it's even more comforting seeing some people that has been with me for all those years on DeviantArt. All I can say: thank you and I hope you don't mind my teasing poll
Now, I should respond to the rest of the comments and notes (were a little bit busy here and there). Give me some time though as weekend is about to begin and I need a proper rest after spending the whole day working on the computer!
