There have been much talk in the forums lately about the fact that new artists doesn't get much attention and if you dont have alot of +watch your deviations go by unnoticed.  This is mainly true for the Photography section I believe.
Myself I blaim the people who use this site as a standard upload site and not an art site as it is.  They upload everything from pics from their crazy vacations in Spain or their soccer tournament abroad where they got really drunk, or simply pics of newly bought items, like clothes or different types of furniture.
I have no idea why deviantArt have a snapshot gallery where I guess stuff I mentioned above goes, but it really push away the real art. But what annoys me the most is that people put ordinary photos in Art Photography, no reason complaining directly since the standard view on things like that is that different people have different views on what art is. But if you read the description and look at the pics I am talking about you cant possibly say it is art.

So if you feel guilty when you read above thoughts please, use some of the links below instead: - Great upload site, 4 mb upload space. - Never used this one, doesnt seem to need an account

I hope someone takes notice of this Journal entry.

Thanks for your time
