A Week in dA Related - #043

Sat May 19, 2012, 9:21 AM

Introduction



Welcome to the next installment of A Week in dA Related!

A Week in dA Related is a weekly news article series that aims to bring you the most important and fun deviantART and dA Related news from the previous week. It also includes a handful of features from the gallery that were submitted in the last 7 days. :)

If you have any deviantART Related news you'd like to share, shoot a note to bradleysays.

This issue covers May 14th to May 20th, 2012

From the Writer


First of all, I hope you all had a splendid week. There were some exciting new changes on dA this week. The one that most of you should be already aware of are username changes. The deviantART community as a whole seem to be split on whether it's beneficial to the community. I'd really love to hear what you think about it all. :)

Another major thing is our dA Related CV, namenotrequired has taken over another gallery - Community Projects. While he is still looking over dA Related, it is now only temporary. This means that there is in fact a position available for dA Related, and I encourage you to apply if you think you'd be up for it. Read this blog for more information.

Discuss! What do you think of the username changes?

As I'm sure you can imagine, I am a big fan of username changes ;p although all those suggestions look like they could make it even better....

I still say you should have switched to ladygaga. admit it already!

Great article, as usual! :icongood2plz:

To answer your question, I don't really like the username change feature :no:
Here's why, if you're interested: [link] (I'm just linking everyone that ask's me to this comment, I don't want to write 1,000 copies of it out all over dA =P)

Thanks! :D

As for your opinion, I don't really agree. :giggle: Some people make their accounts when they're in their early teens. What if they want to be more professional as they get older? Shouldn't they be entitled to change their username?

The way I look at it is, I'd rather someone change username than to move to a whole new account. :)

To answer your question you mentioned, I only don't like the username change since it's only for paying members and the long wait to be able to change it again. :hmm:

Nice feature list also. :nod:

I don't mind the wait in between name changes. I don't really want someone to be changing so often that no one would know who they are anymore. And as for the payment, I think it's fair, so much server space would be taken up if everyone was allowed to do it. :)

Thanks! :hug:

That's true about the wait period, I do think it should be a little shorter than 6 months. Probably like 3. :nod: I'm still neutral about the payments lol and you're welcome! :highfive:
