Everybody hates those members who join this site and treat it like Facebook, just uploading camera phone shots of themselves (clothing optional apparently), crappy MS Paint quality art/fan art of Naruto or whatever the kids are watching these days, art thieves and the list of offenders goes on.
Now the question of 'what is art?' is entirely subjective. But clearly these people don't have any interest in it or have any ability.
I want DeviantART to be a place that showcases quality art and provides a place for artists' to display their art and get work.
What about those who just want to favourite and comment on other people's work? They're welcome, I think my ideal version of this site would allow people to instantly join with a basic account that doesn't come with the feature to submit art.
But to get an artist's account you should have to submit some of your best work to the moderator's to get approval. The standards shouldn't be too high, anyone who shows basic ability in art, writing or photography can get an account. After all alot of people come here to learn and improve their skills.
I think this would instantly improve the quality of this site and I see no reason why it wasn't like this to begin with.
Update: OMG, THIS account right here is what I want to eliminate:[link]
