did this survey so I thought, for fun, I could do it too
So here goes!When did you join DA and why?
July 7, 2002! I joined because I used to be an avid member of the online gallery Elfwood but as my style started to change and mature Elfwood was no longer suited for my needs. In addition to this, they implimented the requirement of approval upon all submitted artwork so posting a new item could take up to months to be uploaded publically. I decided it was time to jump ship and find a new site. DA has been my online hub since then!What was the first deviation you uploaded?
I can't remember for certain, but I do know the first one I ever got favourites on was a fan art of sakura (from that show Naruto) for my friend. I was still in highschool when I drew that picture!How many deviations have you submitted?
Many many more than the 66 shown in the gallery. I keep scraping or deleting things; in fact, I think I have removed everything from my entire first year here!Do you submit everything you create?
Definately not! But I do post every completed piece.Do you read all the comments you get?
Yes!! Of course!!Do you reply to all the comments you get?
I try to, but if the comment is too short I feel retarded for just typing "thank you" over and over again; as a result, sometimes I skip them if they are a word or two long but everything else I try to!Do you read all the favourites/watches you get?
For many, many years I used to go back to their gallery and try to leave a comment to everyone who favourited something of mine or watched me... now I just can't keep up! I still try to check the people who watch me, but when school gets busy that falls to the wayside! I really think this alone is the reason why I have given out over 23,000 comments on this site! And I'm sure many of my new watchers have noticed I have been fairly unresponsive about checking their artwork! I'm really sorry, but I've simply become too busy.Do you prefer comments or favs?
Comments of coruse, but I don't mind either. I am not really sure when that "you must comment before faving" thing started, but I actually find it more disrespectful to demand anything from your watchers than it is to fave something without commenting.How much time do you spend on Deviantart?
Too much.Do you think that Deviantart is good for critique?
I would not expect a sohpisticated critique from this site; therefore, I am never disappointed by the quality of comment I recieve. I appreciate the comments I get and many of them are helpful to me.Do you think there's a lot of drama on DA?
Not more or less than anywhere else online. Having been here for almost 7 years I actually laugh out loud when people constantly whine that DA is becoming more dramatic. I have been reading these same journals for 7 years! I would like to know when this simple and non dramatic DA was!Do you think DA would be better if it filtered out people who are not serious at artwork or causing too much drama?
If this is the case, then I would be removed from the site as I am not "serious at artwork" so I do hope they do not impliment this rule! I feel that if people are disrespectful of the other members or the site itself then it should be judged on an individual basis wether or not they should be filtered from the site.Do you think the age limit should be higher than 13 for creating an account?
Definately not! Everyone had to start somewhere and I think I was about that age when I started posting my work online.Do you go on the DA forums?
I used to, but I didn't find it useful or interesting.Would you buy a subscription? Why or why not?
Yes. I find it easier and faster to reply to comments with a subscription.R E S O U R C E S
