DA what are you doing? :no: by Ailedda DA what are you doing? :no: by Ailedda
EDIT 2: DA has heard us! They made some changes and now it's no need to click to see the artist's comments. I've seen the change a few times. However, I've heard that some beta testers still see the more button so I guess DA's still working on the change.

Thank you DA for listening to us! :)




EDIT: The news article about this is out now! Your support by faving and/or commenting is highly appreciated and needed here [link] Every fave and comment counts..:)

Thank you very much!



DA plans to hide the artist's comments in version 7 released now to beta testers. If you're a beta tester and do not want your comments hidden then please post a comment on the forum and let DA know it! [link]

I for one, do not agree with hiding the artist comment box. It shouldn't be hidden. If you don't want to read it , ignore it. But that is part of my PIECE and I want that part to BE SEEN not HIDDEN.

What will happen when we add thumbs and no one will see them? Because I'm 100% sure that people WILL NOT click that button just to read the comments. So there...and it goes further than that...credits, copyrights, stamps, thumbs, dedications, lyrics, and so on...is DA becoming like photobucket or flickr? Why is the comment box still there anyway? No one will ever bother reading it anymore!...:no:

We are a community, we are here to share our work, interact with others, help expose other fellow deviants but how can we still do that if no one will see our comments? Now DA has found a better way to help support each other..by hiding the artist's comments! Nice!that was sarcasm btw

Ah, so glad they reconsidered! I always read the artists comments, because it's interesting to see the artist's thoughts, how they were inspired, etc.

Also, the fact most stock artists put their stock rule usage there too.

I understand where they're coming from. It's the same reason why many artists will title their work "Untitled". You want people to be able to look at the work, and with out words being shown to you, you can interpret the work in your own way.

On the other hand...you could just ignore them. Because as was mentioned, there are scenarios where that wouldn't work.

I'll be honest, I don't care for artists comments.

Despite this, I'd prefer them to always be visible. Although I don't really bother with them, they do contribute a lot to an image.

If hidden, I really think that there will be a really negative feedback.

Scenario

A girl put up a photo of a cat; the picture being taken with a camera thus it's low quality.

A user comments saying "This shouldn't be up, low quality images should remain on facebook!", another one then appears and starts saying "God! Another cat picture? I don't want to see this crappy low quality image on here, put it on Facebook!", what the users DIDNT read was the artists comments saying "This is my cat that passed away yesterday... I miss him so much.."

-=-=-=-=-

In all honesty, I don't see the point in adding the hiding; if you don't want to read the artist comment then scrolling will suffice; plus even if you skim down the artists comment you'll still see some info that will judge how you comment on the piece.

DA is just going for the "Judge by looks, not by content" approach. It's stripping the works of it's history and depth.

Yeah, I think they should add an edit button too.

They are planning all of these big fancy changes, when smaller changes could help a lot more, in my opinion.

:iconkarlos-elite:
Karlos-Elite Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2010  Hobbyist Artist
Agreed.

Frankly, the artists comment has never really been an issue and there is no real reason as to why it should be hidden.

Whereas an edit button would help quite a lot of people.

IgnorantAwareness Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2010
I totally agree about the 'edit' button!

But more importantly, if someone posts a photo that looks low quality, maybe it's because they don't have any higher res? Or they're just a beginner photographer? Anyone who comments like that is mean-art is art.

Karlos-Elite Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2010  Hobbyist Artist

Sadly, I've seen a few comments which are people just being unnecessarily mean (Those with their own heads up their asses). It's quite saddening but hey, for every 1 awful members theres 20 good members x3

Oh well, let's see if DA actually listen to what WE want (ie- an edit button) rather than what THEY want (ie-the silly 'more' link) *cough cough* haha I kid, I kid :P

Oh well, it happens everywhere-once you get more members, you inevitably get more idiots in the mix too D;

Maybe they could try something else that still looks professional, but condenses the Artists comments. Not with a 'more' button, but maybe something to the side... There's got to be a reason they're contemplating it (aesthetics), so maybe they should play around with it instead of remove it? Or add a new feature where you can list stock used to create something and stuff.

I can see why they are doing it; it does save space but...
I don't agree. I want it to stay the same; I mean it might allow for more idiots who don't read the artist's comment and get offended or make stupid comments.
Let's make the "More" Option never be installed...
I don't like it.

Well, if dA wants to keep the "more" button, then we deviants should have a choice if we want the "more" button feature or not when we submit a deviation.
other than that, I DON'T WANT A "MORE" BUTTON!!!!!
