I was checking one of DA's recent updates and came across a very revolutionary question from a fellow deviant:

Fix by Thiefoworld

And you know what? Yeah! Deviantart: why do you keep fixing what isn't broken? 

I remember when I joined the community almost a decade ago and everything was juuuust right. People were lovely, there was art, there was people and we had just exactly what we needed. But NO DA! You weren't happy with that so you had to keep adding things nobody asked for! Whyyyyy??

For example, we had our lovely and uniform profiles, all of them were exactly the same because we just weren't able to customize them. We coudn't decide what we wanted to show in our profiles like we do now. If you wanted to add things like a gallery folder, or show more than your latest journal entry, or a custom widget, etc. you couldn't! because such things just didn't exist. 

We weren't able to organize our favourites in folders because back in the day, you only had a unique favourites folder and everything was dumped there. Collections? What's that? it was a nightmare to find that useful tutorial you favourited the other day because is now lost in this sea of cute puppies photos and MLP fanarts.

Back in the old days people who wanted to buy stuff, like premium memberships or ask a fellow deviant for a commission, etc. you needed to have access to a credit card or Paypal or figure out another way to pay because Points :points: didn't exist.

Oh and don't get me started on groups. When I first joined if you wanted to start a club you had to open a regular account because groups didn't exist. Running the club was a big hassle because you had to log off your own account and log in the club account and do your work, of course every message and activity within the club went to the club account's message centre, so if you wanted to keep an eye on your club you had to do it this way. You had more than one person running the club? You had to give them the password to access, and believe they would be trustworthy. 

There are a lot more examples, CSS for journals, thumbnails for comments, Mentions, the commission system, even little things like the possibility to vote on a poll directly from your message centre or have forum notifications... such things didn't exist back in the day when I first joined the site.

So yeah, how annoying is to have all these things that make our lives easier nowadays, just because DA decided to fix things that weren't broken. Nobody asked you DA! How dare you?
