errru should really get off of your high horse. Deviantart DOES NOT pander to the lowest common denominator, there's some damn unique artwork on the front page every week, and there is some fanart that slips in too, but that's pretty good too! And deviantart is a serious art and social site, it's above myspace and facebook. The way the prints are organized is excellet, allowing artists to buy prints of deviations and allowing the sellers to receive a good chunk of money from the sale. It's not perfect, but it's the best (and only good) site in my book. That is all

this rant is stupid, for all the things to get upset about this is a useless one, da never presented itself as being completely serious, and if you dont like it so much why dont you move on then...? and if the art world does not think DA is "serious" why are there so many serious and popular artist on it? So excuse DA for trying to take the stuffieness out of art excuse them plz but really if ur so serious for this site then leave...but u wont

Usually I just avoid the internet on april fools because most of the 'pranks' are incredibly stupid. On the other hand if people are getting their panties in a twist over some cats invading the website they post their gallery to for one day, they need to not take things so seriously. :/

I personally thought it was the most original and fun April Fool's joke yet.

A professional artist shouldn't use dA as their main portfolio in the first place. That's like promoting yourself mainly on Facebook rather than Linked-In. You're on a website with teenagers. It's not the April Fool's joke that makes you look unprofessional.

Yeah, you're right, this isn't a professional site but this happens every Aprils fool so... whatever, people bitch about the joke and then people bitch about people bitching :blahblah: :yawn:

The first april fools prank I experienced on DA was the Twilight prank xD I was kind of upset then, because I didn't know it was a joke, I thought someone had hacked my account or something. But I have learned my lesson now!
I don't think it's such a negative thing, yes some can get upset, but it's a prank! And I like that they are willing to do something other then just being a regular (boring) site, and I like that they aren't little pussies that are scared of scaring away some hot headed people who can't take a joke.
