Anyone for DA?

Postby Flash » Mon Dec 31, 2007 4:08 pm

Okay this is where I need your help...

I bet some of you have a DA (DeviantArt) account somewhere. If you have any experience using it, I basically want to know what annoys you about using it. I've been using it for the past 24 hours and it already boils my blood about how it work...

MangaMasters is constructing its own Gallery section (like DA). This is a good time if you have any feature requests or want to suggest an easier way of making it user friendly (unlike DA). So please post your criticism here!

The category system is very annoying, as it's very hard to find where you art should go, or the category you want. Maybe, it should be a manual thing for the person uploading to type out, but the gallery host should give examples and/or suggestions as to what categories could be used?

I've never had an account, mainly because it seemed like one of those faintly elitist 'youth orientated' sites that are overly complicated. :sweat: It has to be SIMPLE with SIMPLE instructions, basically... but I don't really think that's a helpful comment, ne.

Well, it's going okay... I think the main problem is that my scanner is busted, so I can't input decent images. I had to take a photo of something and put it in, and it now looks even crappier than it did beforehand. :lol: Also, I found the upload time for the image to be way too long, but again I think that's down to my personal computer.

Other than that, I found it pretty easy, considering I'm only planning to use it very basically. I've seen people with personalised profiles and extra bits I didn't know you could get, but I don't really care. :P

So yeah, it's all right. But I had a look at MM's profile - it looks and operates TOTALLY different(ly) to mine. @_@ Is it not your average account, or has it been edited with genius computer skills?

if you think DA is bad now, you should have seen it a year or two ago X___X;;;;

i dont really have any suggestions; i like how the beta is going.

all i can say is maybe have the top navigation bar centralised? nothing else really ^__^;;;

Yeah, it's pretty cool as it is. The 'drag and drop' style of selecting favourites is handy but it keeps crashing on my computer, meaning it takes two or three attempts to actually get any favourites selected. I've gone overboard gathering stuff I like already. My favourite is the AzumangaDaioh/Catbus cross-over Kaminekobasu! :lol: LINK: http://kata-elf.deviantart.com/art/Kami ... u-68963185
