If you like the new logo, this journal entry isn’t for you, but if you don’t like the new logo, I have a plan to get it changed. So far, people have just been complaining about the new logo looking terrible, but that isn’t going to do anything. The deviantART staff will just think we’re complaining because we don’t like change. We can’t just tell them that the new logo is terrible, we need to PROVE it!

We need to put our pencils where our mouths are. We need to spend our time making or improving their logo, to prove to them that their logo is bad, and that we want them to change it. They say that deviantART is for the community; that we’re all in this together. Well let’s see them prove it!

If we all work together, and ALL of us make our own logo, we’ll be sending a message to deviantART. A message they simply won’t be able to ignore. If their entire art community is willing to spend the time to fix the mistake they made, they HAVE to pay attention.

What I’m saying, is that we all need to make our own logo. I want you to go make your own deviantART logo. It can be based on their current one, or it can be completely different. You can use digital art, traditional art, or even pixel art. Just make your own logo. After that, tell everyone you know to do the same thing.

If we all pull together and do this, deviantART will have to notice that we aren’t simply complaining. We’re trying help deviantART!

So to list it more simply:
    ·    Make your own deviantART logo
    ·    Use the tags #speakout and #Newlogo, and if appropriate #dahybridlogo
    ·    Tell everyone you know to make their own deviantART logo (perhaps linking them to this journal entry)

If we flood deviantART with this many alternate logos, each one showing our displeasure with the current logo. Then they will notice, and they will have to realize that they need to rethink their logo design. We can do this if we ALL WORK TOGETHER, we just need to be heard.


:iconnebesaheavens: suggested the inclusion of the tags. So thank her for that awesome suggestion. And if you have any ideas for tags, just post them in the comments.

How come I have more pageloads than you when you are more popular than me and have been on dA longer? :? I don't get it. :.
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2015
Am I popular?!?
I always thought you were more popular.

Well, I suppose you get more page loads because you talk to a lot more people, comment on a lot more people's work, and you fav a lot more.

Something I've noticed on deviantART, is that your popularity is based on how much time you spend socializing.
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yep. You're popular. How do I know? Because you have a junior/lite version of what the popular comic artists have. You go to some big comic artist's page and whenever they post a new comic, there are always a bunch of people who are obviously fans of theirs leaving comments all on it in the first two days. 

Usually it seems like when you post a new comic, you usually have a small group of regulars who come by and post something on it in less than three days, just like the big name artists, do- except, of course, they have way more! So you've got regulars like them. Especially :iconvindurza: who I keep seeing. 8-) Every time you post a comic that's funny, this happens, and if the comic missed the mark, then people just quietly leave it un-commented-on until I manage to find it... Wait I wonder if that means your newest one isn't funny then? :O I better go find out.


So yeah. That's what happens to popular people. That's not what happens to me. Some of the new, nice art that I have up, by the way... if you ever look at my Comments I have and see a bunch of deviants you don't recognize, that's probably because I deliberately asked for feedback, and since I wasn't getting it from Watchers, I turned to strangers because I really wanted feedback on that specific piece. That doesn't mean I never get comments from Watchers, though, or that you get millions, or that I don't get them at all. Just not like you seem to.

But you're right on that. I think that does it too. I've even seen an article that tells people how to become a little more popular on dA that recommends being more social if you want more views and comments and stuff.

So yeah maybe you just don't comment on as much stuff out here as I do, but then you still get comments so you must be more popular. :nod:

*checks our statistics* >:3

Yep. My art has been Favorited twice as much as yours, but your art has way more views, with a single piece of yours having more views than all of my top five combined, AND you got all the comments you have while still giving a lot less comments than I have. AND you appear to give comments with a one-to-one ratio also. So yeah I think that all means you win. :trophy: :)
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2015
So you think I'm popular because I get a few comments on each comic I upload? Well I suppose that makes sense. Just so you know, that only started happening when I started uploading a new comic every week. It turns out having a schedule and keeping to it, helps boosts popularity.

Still, I had no idea I was getting so many more views than you on each of my pages.
That's awesome though! :D

Also, I know someone on deviantART who has only a few pieces of artwork (all of which are terrible), and has a thousands of watchers (1370 to be exact).
And do you know how he did it. He talks... a LOT!
Not with loads of huge responses to a single person, like you do. But to a lot of different people. When he favs someone's work and they thank him, he starts a conversation with them.
He got most of those watchers during his first year on deviantART as well.
And if you're wondering who I'm talking about, it's that guy that I drew Tiny Tiger for.

I'm kind of confused why am I mentioned here?

HEY! Someone else has drawn Raz! I see him in your Random Favorites!

And I just came to say two things: Now I have a banner for my character like you have for yours above! :above: :D
And second I need to wait until I'm properly awake before I respond to your notes, because right now... if I try to respond now... no you won't get a worthy response, so I have to wait! :doh:
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2015
Yep, he drew Raz for me. He also drew a humanized version of Raz which I think IS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!

Also, I've noticed your new banner. Strangely enough, it looks very similar to mine... hmm. I wonder if they're based on a template of some kind. I'll have to ask my sister when I get around to it. :D
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Late, dude. I saw that humanized version as soon as I started exploring his Gallery, and was impressed by the awesome of that!

I didn't think of there being a template, and that maybe it was just a method, but with all the banners like that out there, maybe there is a template everyone's using? Your sister made that, right? So I guess now you know by now if she used a template or not.

OHhhh, you're from England after all.
Then I'm sure you can relate much more with all the comparissons and descriptions made in Adam's books.
Is the pizza delivry "problem" still present?
Are you both a Douglas fan, AND a brony?

[spoiler]PD: Do you by any chance like Monkey Island?[/spoiler]
DanVzare Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2015
Yeah I suppose can relate a lot more to Adam's book. Although that being said, they were all written before I was born.
As for the pizza delivery problem, that's no longer present. As a matter of fact, I think ordering a pizza in England is no different than it is in American nowadays. That's probably thanks to companies like Dominoes and Pizza Hut.

Yes, I am a Douglas fan and a Brony. I'm also a Dwarfer (Red Dwarf) and a Whovian (and there's a small list of other things, but I think that lot best describes what I like the most). So a little bit of everything really. Hold on... I've just realized that out of those four things, three of them were made in Britain. ಠ_ಠ

And yes, I love Monkey Island. As a matter of fact, I love all of the Lucas Arts Adventure games (although I've yet to play any of the Indiana Jones games, The Dig, Labyrinth, Loom, Full Throttle, and I only got partly through Grim Fandango)!
I really hope that Ron Gilbert one day gets the rights to Monkey Island and he makes his Monkey Island 3A (or Monkey Island 2.5, I can't remember which name he was going to use).
