What's up? :D I'm Ez! :wave:

I live in sunny South Africa where I spend most of my time indoors, except when I'm leisurely walking around doing errands, strategically plotting my every route to stay in the shade. B-)

In my free time, I work on my illustrated novel project, The Valiard Mansion. If you want to learn more about that, you can pop by my Gallery or visit:

If you wanna ask me anything, just drop me a Comment or a Note. :meow:

Hope you enjoy my Gallery! :hug: :heart:

Hey people! :D

Ever since the dA update, I've been getting far less views on my art. I used to upload new work and get at least SOME kind of page view spike or Watcher influx. Now, nada. It's basically as though I didn't upload anything at all. My stats are just the same as any other day. Anyone else experiencing that, too?

Is the new layout just not as kind to new uploads anymore? Because a lot of my views used to come from randoms prowling the Latest Deviation section and stuff like that. OR maybe people just stopped using dA altogether. Lots of people raged about the update. I wouldn't be surprised if users migrated to other sites.

And I mean, CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG HERE. Maybe my artwork just isn't as appealing as it used to be a month ago. I can live with that. At least then I know the reason for this.

If I'm right, and the update is what's causing this page view flat line, then it stands to reason that dA has now officially found a way to smother us smaller artists. There is no way for us to grow anymore, no way to expand our audience. And that's just balls-ass whack yo. I used to get 50-80 new Watchers every time I uploaded a pic.

Now that's just gone. :iconjontronsrslyplz:

Again, if I'm the one who's the problem, I'll be cool with it. B-) At least then I know whatever is affecting me isn't affecting you guys. :aww:

But do you guys think dA would pull this kind of "all in moderation" shtick? Maybe they're trying to get us all on a level playing field so that nobody gets big spikes anymore? Would you want that? :shrug: I'd really like to know what you guys think about this! :D
