Wait, there's a difference? I thought premium was just another word, like when people spell Pokémon without an accented é.

I like the core memberships, and as far as I'm concerned, I'm willing to spend the little extra for a site I love.

As absolutely hideous as it is, I don't really care about the icon they're using for CORE because I haven't liked ANY of their icon changes since they nixed the simple typographical symbols at the beginning of the usernames several years ago: just a "*" for premium, "$" for staff, etc. (which is why you'll sometimes see deviants who have been around for a while still refer to them as "$taff"). My beef is the price gouging and patronizing nature of what the CORE "benefits" are, at least a third of which aren't actually benefits at all!

The price is the worst of all because of how royally it screws over the younger artists here. Straight to the point: I'm a dinosaur when it comes to deviantART demographics (I'll be 31 on the 28th of this month). I'm also a professional illustrator, so I could actually afford the $50/year since it's also a tax write-off for me... but even then it would be something I'd have to think long and hard about doing. If the new CORE pricing has users like me taking pause, how on earth are all the teens and college students supposed to afford it? $35 for one year and $50 for TWO years was doable.

As of January I will have been on dA for 12 years. I've spent almost all of those years — over a freaking decade — as a paid subscriber. I believe today is the last day of my subscription, and I'm going to do something I have never done in the — again — more than a decade of being a subscriber:

I'm going to let my subscription expire.

I'll subscribe again if they go back to Premium perks and the old Premium price of $35/year. If they run a sale at the holidays that puts the price back down to where it used to be I'll think about renewing, but there's no way in hell that I'm forking over fifty bucks for this garbage.

I might use this, and I agree with what Anti Core users are saying about Core. Also, I'm not sure if you're aware but Spyed said that the layout might change from green at a later date. Since no further word has been mentioned, it's also been assumed that he could have been joking or as Chaneleven (I think it was) put it: Trolling us. I always liked the Premium Membership, and it's a shame I'll never have one now and the Core is nothing but a slap on the faces of those who are unable to afford the membership, it makes the core users (who had Premium Membership but become Core members) feel bad about having Core because they feel that Core makes the other users feel inferior. (not trying to sound mean here).

the core symbol is undeniably tacky BEYOND repair, but I think the price raises are alright.

I don't believe they upped it unless you have a rebilling one, then the next installment will be $50 USD, but unless they feel like making me cough up the extra 20, I hope the 30 I paid is okay!

Core is good and is helpful to the site, even if I'm core the only problem for me is they care more about cores than normal users, this I feel is unfair.

God, I feel like dA is getting worse.. Like they removed the webcam, they removed the mascot Fella, removed the emoticons on the deviations page on the coments section, replaced the logo, and now the Premium Membership is called Core ? Just what the heck.. I prefer when it used to be the premium mebership with the symbols like *, =, etc. I missed that. I missed the old dA...

They got rid of the store, and forced you to go to the front desk to report any problems (which are almost never answered). There's no longer a big enough staff to check for theft or harassment on this site. DA really has gone into the gutter.

They removed the store a very long time ago, however, they removed it when they started "updating" this site's layout to that of Facebook's. They haven't removed the print shop, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did that too. Many artists just print their own art for less than half the cost of DA. $40 for a print I can get for $15 elsewhere is ridiculous. Two years ago was when this site started going downhill. There are many other art websites I am turning to. www.wysp.ws/ is much like old DA. It's still fairly new to the art community, but it's so much better. The quality of the art is moderated (so no more stick figures on MS paint or cell phone nudes), and there's a variety of artists that get featured, not the same ones over and over again. The front desk thing has always been a problem, even before they got rid of it. The front desk was always slow to do anything, and many artworks have been stolen and profited off of by thieves. The worst thing is that DA doesn't even acknowledge it as theft and posted it in a journal.

I've been printing my own stuff for years now for not only price but also quality control (brightness, color balance, etc.). I tell my watchers to just email me if they want to buy a print and I do a mail order for them without a middleman taking 90% of the profit that should be mine in the first place since it's, you know, MY work.

And holy shit don't get me started on their latest copyright policy asshattery. :x

I didn't know that they already removed it a long time ago, what a shame... Mh, I feel like they will remove the print shop as well, and plus, you're right, it's expensive on dA and we can get other prints from other websites which are way less expensive. Yeah, I sadly noticed that.. I actually know deviantART since 2009, and I've seen the changes with the years, but I admit it was getting worse around 2013..  Oh, Wysp ? Never heard about that one before. I just looked up and it looks pretty nice. :) I was thinking about to register on Wysp tho. 
This is true, I sadly noticed that.. I feel like they're just being lazy or something. I remember I used to report something (I think it was about an art thief) and they answered me 1 week and a half later..

I wanted to buy something from the shop too, right as it was closing. Good thing I didn't, DA isn't the same anymore. I've used DA for quite a while, but left a year ago because my art was stolen and I couldn't do anything about. I had one of my pieces put through a photoshop filter; I reported it. The staff said to stop messaging them, and didn't take down my stolen art. I came back a few days ago, and now I regret it.

DA has been laying off staff over the years, and there is a rumor they laid off half this year. DeviantArt is loosing a lot of money from people leaving (due to the poor treatment of it's members). That's why they more than doubled the price of membership.
