  • i always say that im done with deviantart because the updates always suck but i never really leave. theres a lot of artists on there i really like and i still like some parts of the site. just wish the staff would get it together yaknow

    DeviantART ALWAYS has drama (me and my sister have been on there for 15 years, but have just been lurking the last 5 years), I don't think it'll ever change. They had a lot of fights because of the featured journals (but those got taken away) and there was always drama with the actual staff because of power struggles. When they took on the "deviantART loves you" slogan I was like, "Riiiight, seems brainwashy". And every update stinks, when people complain the staff just talks down to members saying they'll "just have to get used to it and we're right" kind of thing. 😓

    Honestly the whole site is a mess. Every update they make is terrible and is met with an onslaught of criticism but they never listen to it. From changing premium to core years ago to the recent "eclipse" update no one asked for...plus smaller changes they made here and there like removing those little "mood" things on journals and also limiting you to only be able to put 10 deviations in a group a day (which for people who run groups and are trying to put art in their groups is VERY annoying)
    And the staff always has issues with art theft and not doing anything about the really explicit fetish art thats not supposed to be on the site at all. They even have a rule where you cant report art theft if youre not the artist of the art thats stolen (at least they did a few years ago when i found stolen art and tried to report it, idk if its changed now) it just kinda shows how little of a shit they give about that stuff.
    It's really sad because I love the concept of the site- art portfolio meets social media kind of thing- and it has cool features. But the staffs negligence has it overrun with art theft/art that doesnt follow the guidelines of the site/etc and they continually make trash changes that just drives everyone away. And it makes me sad because I havent found an alternative site that I like as much.
    my brother came up to me and asked "how do you pronounce the name of that vocaloid erruuha nekomoorah"

    Oof, can't wait. This is the first presidential election that I'm legal to vote in, and now that I'm registered, we'll see!!

    I'm just glad that nobody else can see who you voted for. I'll lie my ass off to my parents, who have very different views that I alsjfdsdf

    This is also the first election that Im of age to vote in as well. I preregistered like a month before my 18th birthday because some people on my college campus were giving out donuts if you did asdfgh. Hey i did something i was going to have to do anyway AND I got a donut for it.
    My mother and I have very different views and shes strongly political so im expecting tension between us this year. i just wont disclose who i voted for to her and she can just imagine i voted the way she wanted me to.

    I dont remember buying the ice lily figure but i saw her on my shelf today....i almost bought her another time because i thought i didnt have her lol
    i want to like the v5 starter loids because i do like vocaloids with no designs/not anime designs, and i like the idea of having default voices for vocaloid, but damn yamaha were those really the best voicebanks you could make?? sad

    Yeah, I adore Sachiko! But she's definitely highly specialized. And Mirai I didn't even know existed until I joined this forum. Yamaha is just... terrible at advertising, and they don't really give a shit about their buyers and audiences, I feel like. Cafe's right in that companies usually care more about profits than customers, but some companies will at least listen to what customers and users have to say and work to make something truly great. For example: Miku Chinese was near-universally lambasted. What's one of the first things Crypton does after breaking from Yamaha? Release an update that improves her clarity and pronunciation, free of charge, because Yamaha doesn't let distributors of Vocaloid products offer free patches.

    I 100% blame Yamaha for Vocaloid's decline and oncoming death. I know there's more factors to it, but they screw over both their own VBs and VBs released through other companies. It's no wonder so many companies are breaking off and starting their own.

    Sadly agreed. Although even once Vocaloid eventually "dies", the fandom will always be around. Esp as new synths have been emerging. Vocaloid will always have its place in the vocalsynth fandom :)

    Oh! That's how you meant it! I see.

    @peaches2217 Yamaha is greedy and there are other things to criticize and agree they suck at edvertising but they are very much listening to their customers, many things implemented in V5 are there because that's what professional music producers asked for/Yamha thought they'd want and that's the thing, we aren't the target audience or at least not anymore. Crypton has very different vision for their products and are targeting a different audience ( that other companies are intersted in targeting as well ). If you wanna make the case that yamaha is making a mistake by not targeting the fandom and not listening to it then that's fair tho.
    yaaay i already bought some new charms for my bag!!! stardust and haiyi are getting here a day before i leave to go back to college (HOPEFULLY im gonna cry if i miss them)

    I've marked my whole channel as being not made for kids and haven't gotten any strikes yet. That might be your best bet, honestly.

    Those are really nice! The blue is my favorite. So, are ita bags made specifically to show off pins and charms and such without fear of them falling off and getting lost? :)
    cafenurse

    Yeah! This is exciting for me because i have some beloved enamel pins that are a little broken so they fall off a lot. I have one of a precious manatee i kept on my school backpack but i finally decided to retire him when i found him outside in the yard.
