I understand that you have quite a following on this site, but if it is useless to you commercially, why not make a flash animation for this site that tells all your subscribers that maybe this account should go inactive AND then to find you on YouTube an/or Newgrounds to watch for new material? I am quite a large fan of yours, so I hope you don't take this offensively, cuz it's just a suggestion... But then again, maybe I don't understand certain concepts... Or that you have other purposes for this site... Or that maybe I'm rambling naow...
Personally I don't like dA either, but you have given me a sad by uploading the whole flash onto here with no sound and two big annoying buttons. I'm not watching this flash, nor will I go to either of these sites to watch any others.
Besides; Newgrounds is just awful, and Youtube is owned by google.
The reason google owning YouTube is a bad thing is simply because it was better before they owned it, less "This video of not avaiable in your country." and "Lol, we have copyright legislation coming out of our ass, so we turned the auto off on this video."
Newground is bad because... Because.. Uhh! Because there are too many diaglonal lines in the background, yeah! Also tanks make me sad.
No, my main point was, most sites are awful for lots of reasons, my problem wasn't that you didn't want to post it on dA, but that you did post it on dA, without any sound and with big obnoxious buttons over it. If you'd just made an image for it saying "Oh hey! I made a video, you can watch it here" I doubt I'd be quite so sadface.
I can understand those points, but I'll accept it cause it's a great platform to show your creation AAAAANNNNDDD make profit.
Your Newgrounds point is invalid, but it seems like at least you're aware of it.
I didn't want the animation on Deviantart, but I also didn't want to deny the people who watch me from the animation. I would have just made a journal with a link, but from past experience I've learned that not a lot of people read journals. So I made this deviation so everyone can watch it if they please, I really can't see how that annoyed you.
You're right about journals, I tend not to read them either.
It wasn't so much the making the deviation that annoyed me, in the past I think you've just made an image with links to the flash on NG because it was against some ToS or something. The thing that annoyed me was that you put the whole flash on here, but without sound and with big buttons in the way. Posting it without any sound is just kind of annoying, if you're going to post the flash up here, there's no reason to not just put it on here normally. So yeah, I was just annoyed at the fact that the flash was on here, but to get sound you had to go elsewhere, essentially.
If you're phasing out dA.. OOH! You should make a flash directed at your dA watchers, explaining that you're not going to be posting stuff up here much anymore.
Just my two-cents but, I think what Pocky-Wolf wanted was something along the lines of a title-screen linking to Newgrounds and YouTube (like you already do) and then having a play button that just plays the animation here on dA. Or, at least, that's the thing that makes the most sense to me. Love your stuff though, Yotam (can I call you Yotam? do you prefer LazyMuffin?). Anyway, toodles.
