My subscription ends on January 1st, 2016, I think that's a sign. So I will be deleting this dA account at the end of the year.
So I know I've talked about this before but I really feel like it's easier to make up my mind as of late to say that I think I'll be leaving deviantArt. Not sure if I want to delete this account or just abandon it, but either way, dA has become a barren wasteland and what was once a THRIVING art community with LOADS of friends offering their support or talent or just their time has vanished and become more what feels like an empty room after a party has just ended.
It's sad...and every time I come here I am reminded of how much fun I used to have here and all the great friends I had and made. Most of those friends I have on more personal websites like Facebook or I have their cell phone numbers, so at least I can keep in touch with the people that I know want to keep in touch with me. For a while I've been living off my accumulated points to maintain my subscription here but they have almost run dry. And since I don't plan on selling any more adopts, I don't think I will ever get more points.
Having a subscription-less dA is dangerous, it gave my old PC several terrible viruses and while I may be safer now with my Mac, I just don't want to risk it anyway. It's really not worth it anymore. So my subscription has 2 more months and after that I will decide whether or not to delete everything and walk away. It's been a great 10 years on here (the last few not so much), so it's gonna take some serious thought.
Also, again, I'm on tumblr MUCH MORE OFTEN than here. I post a LOT of fan art there. Check it out if it interests you. siriuslymeg.tumblr.com/tagged/…
<-- That's my art tag.
