I found out today that I'm a "core" member now. I thought they had downgraded my account at first, but no, that's actually what DA is now calling their members that have paid to upgrade their accounts beyond free access to what used to be called Premium Membership. Oh well, it's just a designation, even if it is a confusing and stupid one as "core" implies the standard set of account tools, not the upgraded set that we've actually paid for.

The bigger issue is that they've doubled the cost of the Premium Membership...err, sorry, the "core" membership.  To me that's a deal breaker. Frankly, I had really only upgraded my account to turn off those damn ads, and I've been able to take advantage of the BOGO deal DA does around Christmas. At $50 dollars though...I don't know, It's not that I can't afford it, it's just that it's not worth it to me.  With many of the talented photographers that I enjoy following leaving to other sites, DA's value has dipped below that "need to have" level. 500x or maybe one of the other sites might be getting my money from now on.

Will you upgrade or renew now that the membership fees have doubled? 

3 deviants said No! It's not worth it at that price.
No deviants said Yes! DA for life!


Wow, thanks for all the likes and great responses to the pics I took at the Sensuous Steel exhibition. :)

Thank you SO much for the llama Heart
By the way, if you like erotic/romantic novels, you can have a look at my gallery and if you like it enough, add me to your watch list.
I am posting parts of an erotic novel I am writting and, soon enough, will be giving the whole book out to my watchers for free :) (Smile)
