About the "greet new deviants" thing.

It´s nice to welcome new members of dA but if you only do mature art maybe not greet a younger artist? They will check out your profile for sure to see who the person is that was so nice to welcome them. Ok they can have an activated mature filter but.. I don´t know xD" Am I the only one who thinks it is not okay? I might just see it too sensitive though, young people see porn anyway as soon as they enter the internet. It´s everywhere.

So basically in other words if you're a PORN artist you have no right to talk to people??? That's a bit much but I'd think artists that make mature content could just warn the young user not to look. Like hey, my art is a bit too much.
But maybe it'd just tempt em' gak! :o

But like you are right that that happens. I had this happen recently when me and another user had an agreement on something, and were like I'ma look at your stuff! XD

I know. XD I know you didn't mean anything but I was like "wha??"
Don't worry I'm not one of those people who get butthurt over everything.
I set up a vote recently on this, which was why I asked you. Thanks btw!!
I hope what I put helps things on here. It's about sectioning the porn/adult content in a separate area of DA. But I wonder if I explained right tho.
Do you want to see the link?

The more explicit mature filter doesn't even show the content until their account says is at 18 years of age. However that is to trust that artist use the proper filter level. I tested the different filters one day because I was curious. Users below 18 told me they'd have to wait. I thought that was neat.

As for a porn artist greeting a New deviant? I don't particularly think it's wrongful. Could lead to the two conversing about it. And I think being able to have the option to ask questions is good. I don't think I'd approach a porn artist on my own to ask why they draw it. But I'd always have the choice to ignore them too.

I've always viewed art sites as places to learn since the communities on them are quite diverse in knowledge and open-ness. Lots of New experiences here I couldn't find anywhere else (Safely).
