I just noticed that Deviantart wanted me to take a survey (it appeared in my notifications center). If you've been asked to take a survey for Deviantart, it'd be a good idea to do so. I have several concerns about Deviantart that I would like addressed, and this seems to be about the only way to get them across. The survey itself takes some time to complete, but I think it's worth it. The management needs to hear what we're worried about and what needs to be fixed.
To be honest, I am unhappy about what has happened to DA. The sense of community has diminished, the userbase is ignored, and it is increasingly difficult to find art I want to see. I want things to improve, so hopefully this will help. The survey seems like a positive thing to me, as it shows a willingness to see how the users are feeling. That's why I think if you do see the option to take the survey you should do so.
