#Promoted by ZuTheSkunk #Promoted by ZuTheSkunk
I just learned today about this new thing from DA. Just take a look here and read for yourself: #Promoted

I'm a Premium Member, so this problem doesn't affect me, but even I can see how utterly ridiculous that is.

I found (hopefully) a way to counter attack it if you're a regular member (like me). Put the group in your Blocked list without the #.

Don't recall this group and I'm non-premium. Maybe grandfathered in before they did this?

Or is this just some parody of some of the kind of stuff they do when we're not expecting it?

Regardless my attitude is more or less meh either way, and the only way I'd see myself going premium is if I got enough DA points in my donation pool. (And currently I'm far from the amount needed. I'm just not the type to win any popularity contests.)

I'm afraid no, sorry. :(

I don't really mind this MLT feature. Even if deviations it picks can be pretty random half of the time...

It's BS advertising, but there's nothing we can do about it. Except make comics like this, which can be for entertainment. XD

"A Promoted deviation or journal will only appear in a deviant's Message Center if the content involved will likely be of high relevance to the deviant."

If that were true (moar Ponies) I wouldn't really mind it. Be it as it is, I don't think it's gonna make much of a difference for me anyway with the traffic my DeviantWatch has to endure. :D
But still, it's bad to force it upon people.

The reaction of 99.9% of the community upon #Promoted's implementation embodied in this comic. Thank you for this, thank you very much :heart: And for those that don't understand the fuss... approach the situation like this. Someone approaches you and begins blatantly pissing on your leg.. and I mean.. PISSING. ON. YOUR. LEG... and you ask them to stop and they say SURE.. pay me. Would you pay them or punch them in the face?.. Precisely...

Yeeeah, so basically, screw you DA.
I hate your mascot too, by the way, DA.
The only good thing is that can probably find a way to delete all the shit in one go.

With the amounts of negative response they're getting in the comment section of the group, it would be extremely hard for them not to notice.

Knowing the da staff, despite the negative responses, they'll probably stick their fingers in their ears and go 'Isn't this the best thing ever? :heart: ' and walk away.
They've been doing that a lot lately. :(

It something a lot of companies and websites do. :( They start out nice, and then they start listening more to their own ideas instead of their users'... ends badly. Doesn't need saying.

I can never seem to tell if dA is desperately trying to get funds together, or if they're being over zealous in ways to get more money. (What with all the rock-bottom shop/print sales they always seem to have.)

I personally think they should promote art in another way, even if it's a different type of inbox. Mixing it with your +watched art makes no sense, and creating a new inbox would be incredibly easy.

It's not a huge deal for me, but I'm starting to feel sorry for all these huge companies. They don't seem to think past the first 3 layers of a function before implementing it, even if it's a good idea on paper. I'd love to help, but as we all know, one voice doesn't mean anything...so yeah.

I hope a meteor hits earth. A big one.
