Auto resizing your art since March 18th!
I've just been made aware that DA has decided to (temporarily?) take away our choice of showcasing art in any width we desire.
That's right- if you upload a new deviation right now, you won't get a choice of "900 width" or "display original size".
Everything I upload, auto-resizes!

I decided to write a news article about this development of interest, since I don't see any official news or topics about this new implementation anywhere... only after 30 minutes found a topic about it on the forum.
What if today I want to upload a comic book artwork that is MEANT to be scrolled horizontally with very little height?
What if today I want to show a wallpaper that's 1800 pixels wide?
Statistically, only 10-20% of people click the "download" button- that means 80-90% of watchers will miss out on what I want to REALLY show.
Give me back my "display art in resolution that I originally uploaded it in" button.
From the forum post on the issue:

I don't use DA anymore, and honestly a lot of my commentary on here is old and embarrassing. I'll leave everything up for posterity, but don't expect any kind of response here. Sorry.

Things you need to know: I am basically never here. DA has basically become a writhing cesspool of softcore pornographers, art thieves, a useless and unresponsive staff that doesn't care one lick about its userbase, terrible memes and macros, Nazi sympathizers, enormous racists, people who think rape isn't a big deal, and ye olde "it's my styyyyyle" whiners, so these days I only ever come here to look at a few specific artists' work. On top of that, real life tends to take precedence over the internet, and I'm not a good enough artist for art to be anything but a hobby, so don't be surprised if I take EONS to respond to any messages, if I even manage. I realize I sound like a crusty old curmudgeon, but that's because, by internet standards... well, I am. If you want to befriend me, try tumblr, although you may be put off by all of my angry liberal blogging. Sorry. : /

Hey, I was wondering if you ever got your kitty back? I have three catbabies and would hate it if even one of them went missing! It was seriously not cool of whatsherface not to even tell you he went missing. Sorry if this is creepy, just worried for you and your lovely tesla! (I only have a DA and have been tumblr lurking you for a few months now.)

Oh, luckily it's not me who lost the kitty! I was reblogging it from the person who did, mossbraker. (I don't know if she has a DA account, but that's her tumblr name.) It sounds, from her most recent blog messages, like the crazy catsitter has informed her that the cat ran away, and she's now trying to blame mossbraker for not contacting her. Basically, a super-shitty situation. I really hope she can still manage to find him-- I have two bunnies and a chinchilla, and I'd just die if one of them went missing! : (

Oops! Sorry. I agree, if my cat got kidnapped by some crazy ass lady on tumblr with an uber penchant for vanity pics, I'd be pissed too. I read whatsherfaces (catstealer's) reaction when the post looking for her went out on tumblr, and OHGOD poor mossbreaker. Craycray catstealer could atleast own up for her stupid decision to cut contact, let alone tell mossy about what happened to tesla.

I'm also sorry I assumed you were mossbreaker, I need to follow tumblrs back properly when I get on a high horse. :P

Idea for a fan-art

Indigo League pokemon gym leaders as Batman villains

Blaine = Riddler
Giovanni = Two-face
Erika = Poison Ivy
Lt. Surge = Bane
Janine could be Catwoman
and so on...

Also, Hi
Remember that time you and I existed in the same universe? :D

Happy barkday! :thumbsup: You're now legal to bark back at the dogs! ;F

XD Thanks! I have to say, though, I didn't know that there was a specific legal age for that, nor that 23 was a milestone birthday. Thank you for enlightening me!
