So... I know I probably overreacted yesterday about the whole Avatar thing... but I REALLY FREAKIN' HATE TWILIGHT and all it stands for! Why couldn't they have picked ANYTHING else?!

Not as bad as the warez.com april fools they changed everyone's account to some higher member like a moderator or something as a joke and we all shat a brick because we thought we had accidently hacked a mod/owners account :p

Also dA is supposed to be a global community and this april's fool thing is far from universal. It was a very ethnocentric thing to do

Man I was angry too. I enjoy dA, but it definetely can't be used seriously/professionally. Take duffzilla's advice and put up a portfolio :nod:, they are really nice.

Just be thankful you knew what your April's Fool prank was about. I still have no idea what "Team Seeker" was referring to. :nod:

Yeah, I thought it was pretty shit. It just reinforced my belief that I don't really belong here. ..and neither do you, I suppose. There's a sense of humour here that's just not like mine at all and the little jokes are lost on me. I get the reference, I just think it's shite.
The thing is to just avoid forums, chatrooms etc. There are some great artists here that I enjoy watching.
As for protecting your dA page, set up a portfolio page. It's a pretty cool thing they've put together.
Here's mine for example:

It's just a sign that you take yourself far too seriously.

That's the whole point I think, Twilight being lame, the fandoms being silly and annoying, that was the whole joke to make everybody look like they were supporting a hateable fandom.

DA's stupid idea of an April Fools joke - which I did NOT appreciate!! - It used too much of my time (taken away from my artwork) trying to figure out what was up... next time DA should give us an "option out" . . .

that is what really pissed me off. I was locked out from changing my avatar back. Not cool. Not cool.

could agree more - let's put this behind us and get back to what really matters.

They did it BECAUSE everyone hates it, that's the joke. I hate Twilight too but I just laughed. Do you know that people who laugh instead of getting upset live, on average, seven years longer? It was on the news a few days ago. So laugh and be happy my friend. It's all relative. ;)

I do very much enjoy to laugh, and consider myself to be generally a rather jolly fellow; BUT, NOT everyone hates Twilight. It is a cultural phenomenon. One which I find completely retarded.

To put it in other terms, I also dislike Harry Potter and would have been equally as pissed if they had altered my avatar to some Harry Potter themed image.

I think what REALLY got me pissed though was the fact I was UNABLE to change my avatar. If my icon changed and I could have changed it back, I really wouldnt have minded. I could not opt out of their stupid April Fool's joke. THAT, I believe, is what ultimately really got me.

Well, I just don't understand all those Twilight people :lol: As for the avvie, awww, it was just for 24 hours. And they do it every year. Last year was mudkips, and same as this year, people got all bent that their avatar was affected for 24 hours. I don't find it any big deal, it's just a silly joke.
