If any of you have noticed recently on deviantART, millions of members are completely enraged by the fact that dA has changed not only the icon of the premium memberships to a ghastly, borderline copied orange and white star (that looks fantastically similar to Robloxs' logo), but has traded PM's for "core memberships" that are two to three times more expensive and with less benefits.
Most people being teens that don't normally have a lot of cash to spend in the first place, are totally upset about it and have even gone so far as to create a petition to get dA to change it back (over 9,000) signatures so far. The reason it's happening is because DA is strapped for cash and is slowly going down the drain. Half of the company's staff was laid off because of the drop in funds and it's only getting worse thanks to things like adblockers and people leaving the site.
Personally I'm on the fence as to whether or not I'm okay with the changes, though I'm considering playing the devil's advocate and defending DeviantART's choice. Simply because I understand they need money, and without it then DA is toast. Despite the crummy people that exist on the site, there aren't many other websites like it and aren't as tuned to amateurs and hobbyists like it is.
So I guess at the end of the day, I'm wondering how those of you feel about the whole fiasco if you're into DA. Are you upset like millions of others, or are you okay with it, or do you just not care? IDK how to feel about it still, since at the end of the day it's all boiling down to money again.
