teh internets: srs bsns!
United States
Member #190,650 since November 15, 2001. It only took 8 years to run me away with the way this place has gotten.

Current Residence: No longer here.
This is it. I think that I've finally decided to let DA become only a memory. I've been here a long time, but might as well not have existed. I have posted in the past and people have begged me to stay, but not this time. I've hardly gotten any exposure on here. I'm told constantly to "get involved" with the community to get noticed. This is NOT true. You do not need to jump head first into this community to get noticed. I do not have the time to dedicate to this website and go out of my way to say hello to thousands of different people just so someone might take a look at my work. I have health issues to consider, and the time I waste here trying to be everyone's friend is time wasted that I could be out shooting as well.

Day in and day out I see GARBAGE on this website pour in and get praised as if it's the next work of DaVinci. I've seen a lot of politics on here. Countless times I've applied to become a volunteer to be denied. I've put a lot of time into here. I've done what I can. Thing is, I've come to the realization that I'm not going to really make any form of mark here. The past year and a half my submissions have been on a decline. I tried to get affiliated with a couple groups, but I guess the final straw is having a deviation of mine DENIED that received a DD. The group posted guidelines on picking submissions to reflect quality, but for whatever reason... You know, I'm not going to really get into it.

I'm done with this place. I am not going to submit anymore of my art, and I think that I will actually remove the artwork that I have posted on here, as well as journal entries. I look at it this way, if my deviation isn't good enough to be in the group of the GD that GAVE IT THE DD, I see that as a slap to the face. It's not the first time I've felt that way. I've been here longer than most of the staff, I've put in a lot of hours and at the least I think I'd deserve at least a senior acknowledgement. I'm not waiting around for anything anymore.

Goodbye DA. To hell with this place.
