In the last years dA was getting less interesting for me.
Atm I´m think about to close my page after the premium account is over.
My photography career started with Deviantart over 10 years ago but I don´t feel that there are more benefits then a bit of e-penis.
The last thing what annoyed me extremly was, that dA doesn´t change the filename after uploading the picture.
I used to rename my pictures after the people on it. So Max_Mueller.jpg was also Max_Mueller_by_xyz.jpg if you look at the hotlink of the deviation.
I think thats a big lack of privacy as all other sites I know change the filename to a not traceable alphabet soup or something else.
It took me a lot of days togehter with the help desk to find out that the only way to change the filename is to resize the image while submitting it.
dA startet this a few months before and it brings me a lot of anger with two models from me as they found theirselfs on google image search.
And dA need 30 days to delete the pictures after deleting the deviation - what was my first step.
I have to change the filenames for any future submission especially for dA.
That sucks and I think I´m not the only one with that problem
