FA Extraction: Complete? by hareteeth

Wow, so deleting all my art on FA wasn't that hard; but lol i guess you can't straight up delete your account! :/
I haven't caught any flak, but it bugs me that people are acting so entitled about artists moving accounts. It takes like, 5 minutes to signup for a new site; and isn't it great how people will give you their usernames?? Likewise,"waiting until the site has more users/is more popular" is kind of...counter-intuitive?? Ha.

Looking forward: I can't wait for the SPX lottery to start up. I'm a bit ambivalent about it as a format, but it makes things interesting, at least. Ahhh, it does mean I'll have to get some WORK together. At least three new things?? Yeah.

    Heh, the only thing you could do in that regard is "deactivate" your account ... but when a user knows your username, he/she can circumvent that and look at your journals anyway ... shoddy coding ahoy xD

      Haha, yeah, I deactivated my side-accounts, but I didn't know that! Lucky for me, I habitually purge my journals, so I only have two and they're both about not being on FA!

      WOAH did not know that O_O

        Many people don't know that, found out about it by accident.

          I checked and it's totally true, kind of defeats the purpose of an account deactivation O_o

            Yep, that's why I said shoddy coding - only doing things half-assed'ly never works on a big scale.

    Eh, it's a lot of a bigger hassle for an active artist than for people who mainly comment and follow. The artist needs to go through the whole purge/reupload and then regain followers on the new site. The fans, as you say, just need to take 5 minutes and create another account. Some of the petty reactions from people these days have reached a new low.

      Yeah; and deleting on FA is a bit of a hassle, but I found a good rhythm in click-enter-wait to reload-click-etc.
      I also like reuploading, I get to take the stuff from the past 3 years and put it online again like it's shiny and NEW! Haha, it makes me feel more productive than I actually am.
