This site's pretty much dead to me now. Most the people I knew here back when shit was active have all disappeared. All that's left is a handfull of decent people and the spam from DA telling me to enter contests I couldn't care less about and telling me to pay for premium membership to remove the ads that arent there in the first fucking place because of AdBlock.
Don't get me wrong; I'm not spiteful about that shit. it's just a mild irritant and not something that makes me want to stick around.
It seems like everyone who spends more than a couple years here just stop or disappear and I can see why. Some people say the site's being mismanaged, but I couldn't give a shit about that. Half the problem is the insanely small viewerbase this site attracts. On places like Newgrounds my pictures average over 2300 views each with a steady rate of 1500-3000 views per picture. Here on deviantart though it's not so good. I have 4 pictures that have a solid amount of views (Thanatos Ultimate with 7550, Thanatos Adult with 2100, Reaper with 1500 and Thanatos Ultimate Chaos Legion with 3400)that make up almost half of the total views I have here. Aside from those 4, the rest of my pictures average arouind 300 views (adding those 4 pictures almost doubles the average count to 550)
The numbers really wouldnt feel so bad if there was a solid community here, but like I said; there's only a couple decent people active on here, Rockabilly being one of them.
New art is few and far between for me now.
My life's moving in other directions and I dont have the patience to sit down and spend 8 hours drawing an A4 size picture. When I do make new shit, I''ll be sticking it on my Newgrounds page. DA just doesnt seem like it's worth the hassle anymore. Aside from the diminishing views, the regular site updates behave like shit and are a pain in the ass to deal with when I haven't been doing anything on here for months. Right now the site's giving me internal server erros as I try access any goddamn page on here.
If you're up for chatting and shit, give me a yell on steam. I'm usually up for some TF2, DayZ and shit like that.
