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 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 hiding the artist's comments! Nice!that was sarcasm btw

Luckily, I've heard they actually litened to us, and won't make that shitface button. :dummy:

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;

~it's stupid, without artist's comment the art will be deficient

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.

This is ridiculous... I hope these morons come to their senses and choose not to implement this horrid idea. ><;

Yeah, edit button would be a win :P

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

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.

You do have a point there. This actually IS the worst thing that they have done. Right behind being money-grubbing Pricks....
