For a while I have been thinking I needed a new blog post because frankly I was getting tired of looking at my old Christmas entry that was still up but honestly I could not really think of anything new and interesting to say. Well I can always count on DA to give me something new to rant and rave about. They never disappoint there.
As I always say when I begin one of my "WHY DA WHY" rants there is a lot of really good things about DA and I think the community it provides artists is great, and the fact that it is free is a wonderful thing but at the same time they do things sometimes that I find to be utterly and completely maddening. I hate it when any website finds the need to make changes just for the sake of making changes and feel like they are doing something. Ever hear the phrase "if it ain't broken don't fix it?"
The latest change I just noticed (I do not know if it is indeed a permanent new update or a temporary glitch) is extremely inconvenient and I really do not understand it if indeed this is a new lasting change. When browsing deviations in my Deviant Watch as well you know to the left of the deviation there is an add to favorites button, and there was right under that a remove button which made it easy to delete deviations from your Deviant Watch and then would automatically bring up the next deviation for you to view once you removed the previous one.
Well guess what? It seems that the "Remove" button has itself been removed. It is no longer visible under "Add to Favorites" I looked around to see if it maybe was moved somewhere else on the page, but I cannot find it anywhere.
So now it seems the only way to remove a deviation from your Deviant Watch is that every time you view a deviation you than have to back to the thumbnail page and click on the x by the thumbnail. This is far more time consuming than being able to just click on "Remove" after viewing each deviation.
