To the artists out there who can't afford things like everyone else. I'm calling bullshit! Deviantart should be a place for artists to connect or share their art. This is not a game website. Some people in the world cannot afford to get a premium membership. Art is not about money. Art is about sharing love and feelings and who we are. Art is not for just the rich. In fact a lot of poor people cannot do this. I may have an iPad but my parents make me buy things for this website. And as I am a young artist I don't have a paypal. And I don't make much money. I think that we should get our rights back. We should be able to Customize our pages and take polls. And we deserve to interact with others. Deviantart is here to bind artists but this is just making it harder for us to connect. If people don't know this, free websites get a lot more people than paid websites. Plus with all the users and ads you would think DA gets enough money. And people paying for points! Honestly to take away stuff one by one for non premiums is just not fair. We deserve things too. And I honestly believe that if DA continues with this. It will be replaced by a new free website. Besides points and stuff but no premium. So I say stop the Discrimination. And no I have nothing against Premium Members, I'm Against the decisions of DA. I see why Premium members did what they did, by buying a PM. Everyone wants stuff they deserve, I work my ass off on art just to be disrespected by DA. I don't wish to get banned for saying this but this is just my opinion. I'd Appreciate if you'd repost and maybe if DA sees this they will give us our rights back. And if I get banned so be it. I'll just have to start my own website and make it free to all users. And I feel if I get banned for this it is unfair because this is freedom of speech and it is in my first amendment rights to peacefully protest.

Started by :iconartisticlilac: 






I want to add some here.

Before I really start... go and look at your profiles. See something missing? It's your webcam.

Now I understand that DA is an international website, and I do understand that all the PMs pay off the expenses for all the servers and everything. But... I mean... it was going on so fine when I joined. Do we really have to take more away from non-payers just to try and persuade them to pay? Like, why take away the webcams? Would they really influence us to get PM?

How about I give you an example of someone who can't get the membership.

I personally am a 15 (turning 16 soon) year old transmale (don't you freaking judge me) who goes to a VERY small town. My father's disabled, I'm states away from any of my family except my mother, and my mother is stressed because she can hardly afford gas to get to her job. I can't get a job because of the lack of things in the town I live in. Without a job... I can't get money. And without money... I can't buy the Premium Membership.
So... just because I was forced to move somewhere I didn't want to I physically can't get PM. All the money I just saved up for college ($234) just went to mom so that she can feed us and pay off our gas to live through the winter.
And I'm not the only one in the world who is like this.

I won't ask for much- because I do understand how much PM is needed to run the site.

But how about we have the ability to talk to our watchers without constantly posting journals? Or how about we get to actually see the statistics of our own profile? How about letting us add subfolders to our galleries to help us keep organized?
That's what I'm asking, DA. I'm asking that you stop trying to earn more money than you actually need by taking away from the fun that DA has.

I made the reference in one of my journals about the webcam.
DA is slowly turning into a MMORPG kind of site... in the sense that you have to pay to do simple things. Look at World of Warcraft. That game was amazingly fun, but then there became payers and non-payers. Payers became so OP that the difficulty had to be raised, and now non-payers can barely get past rank/round 2.


DA is supposed to be a site where artists and authors in training (or already successful) should be able to post their art and get helpful advice.
"But, Sam! The comments below the piece let that happen!"
Yes, they do... but not as much as a critique would. A critique is a lot better in the art world (yes, English Writing is an art) than having someone say "hey, nice job!" A critique can tell someone how to improve on their shading, their anatomy, their style, the way the describe something, and the way that they word their phrases. 

"But Sam! DA lets us post our art/writing just like any other site!"
Yes, they do... and that's one of the things I love about DA is that we can go into groups and submit our art/writing to show people what we can do. However, non-payers can only administrate 3 groups. Which means that we can't impact the website very much.

I've noticed that over the course of time DA has become less fun. Premium DA members can do practically anything with their profile (now including adding a webcam) while non-payers can't. Premium members have a lot more fun- they can create shout-out boxes, they can display custom texts and art, and they can show who is visiting their profile.  I could post all my stuff on Tumblr and Fanfiction. At least those are free sites and are fun at the same time. Literally the only thing keeping me here is the friends that I talk to.
DA's just... growing old and plain for those who aren't paying....

Doesn't anyone else think the same....?

I heard that there is a hacker going around on DA and hacking people.
I could be the next, or you so be careful.

The hacker does penis pictures around in the account page and writes in journals: "I hate you all, go die" And he/she also remove all your watches.

If this happens to me, then you know that isn't me. I write this on my page to warn everyone here. Write it yourself on your Page. I think the hackers will not have more fun with hacking you if you and your watchers already know what could happen.
