Hate Storage Stamp by izka197 Hate Storage Stamp by izka197
Seriously, why do you put your art on DA, then storage it so noone can see it?! That's just silly in my opinion.
If you wish noone to see it, make a folder on you PC and put your art there.
I hate when people are using storage, to be honest. And I hate twice, when stamps or tutorials are being stored. What the hell?! How can we use them if we only see that stupid grey thing?! People, think a bit! It's stupid.
I really know that people can do what they wish with their art, but honestly, I don't get the point of storage. it's silly for me. Especially for things like tuts, stamps, and of course all other stuff. bleh.

Feel free to disagree. politely;)

I agree that it can be quite annoying, but there are often times when crap happens (i;e mass artwork theft, esp. in the case of closed species) and storage can be pretty useful. After everything is smoothed over, though, the artwork can be brought back easily, even if you've deleted the file. I can definitely see what you mean, though; especially with the stamps.

I think storage is lines good because let's say it's a drawing you like, but the artist deletes it. It isn't likely you'll see it again. However, in storage you can at least bring it back if you wanted to.

Been this like crazy, also I think people here have interesting art it sooo annoying to see it get stored away. 
BobClampettFan164 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This has happened to many of many favorites, sadly. Now, I hate them too.
ThePinkMonkeyArtist Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I know right?

Having things in storage, especially stamps, is so annoying!
Mirria1 Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Agree with you there.
MarioSonicPeace Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2015
Now this is something that the DA stuff should move. 
mariosonicfan16 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2015
I agree.

It makes me sad to see some of my favorites
be stored away like that :(

It especially gets annoying when a handful of deviations in your favorites end up "in storage" and you end up having to search through all of your favorites to find and remove the "in storage" deviations. Especially if they happen to be "unlisted" favorites, favorites that are not in any folders you may have and are not "featured" meaning you have to click on "all" to find it. And it gets even worse when you have hundreds upon hundreds of favorites.

B-but my old stuff was sucky and i didn't want people to see it...
The-Little-Caticorn Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
So why did you post it?!
waterfuzzy Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Because I posted it years ago when I was underaged.
The-Little-Caticorn Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
So why did you not just delete the deviation?
waterfuzzy Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
It'd take too long. I had a ton. And wouldn't deleting essentially have the same effect as storing?
The-Little-Caticorn Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, but storing kinda makes your page look messy.
EclairRose Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Especially when you run a dA group (I run two), you're going through your group's gallery and you see all those "In Storage" thumbnails. I remove them without warning (the only warning I give about it is in my group rules).

I always get upset when someone stores my favorite art because then I have to unfave it and maybe stop watching them in protest. It always ticks me off, seriously. :shakefist:
VannilaIcecream Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2015
I kinda agree,with the stamps a tut's that are put in storage is not cool because how are we spouse to use them?

and others put there stuff in storage to move to another account.
xTechnologic Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
totally agree
KatrueYumeNikki Featured By Owner Edited Feb 21, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
when adopts i buy get stored.

How do you put your artwork in storage?
PrincesseKitCat Featured By Owner Edited Jan 25, 2015  Student General Artist
Personally, I used one time storage, it was because because I wanted it  to be hidden to have the time to make the newer version of it. The old version wasn't supposed to be seen by no one, since a new version was coming. ButI agree with you with one point. Storage is to TEMPORALLY hide an artwork from the public.
Sandmound Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
I know right, they should just delete it if they want it to be private. -o-
NetherHeartz Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I am planning to put a CRAP TON of pictures in storage, BUT NEVER EVER EVER stuff that I did before. All of the deviations that I want to get rid of are like 5 months old and they are horrible. Plus they spam the "See more from :Your name here:" part whenever you see any of my new and much better art. I'm sure I'm doing the world a favor by putting my old and horrible art into storage XD
Rei-sama164 Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
YES....Drop It's annoying...
NotTheHoodlum Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2014  Student General Artist
a couple people i watch on here put some of their work on storage and i get upset because some stuff i never saw, plus i liked it
FelisLupus Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
No, it's because I'm trying to get some pictures off of my NOOK and on to an SD card or my computer, so I don't want people to say I stole from somebody. I get your point though. I don't like it when the art I favorited is no longer visible.
LucyCat07 Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
I just hate it when Art is in Storage!!!! Rage 
MrMilkshake Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i guess people are free to do whatever they want to do with THEIR deviations
if they no longer want people to see a crappy doodle they made months or years ago, it's their choice, they have their reasons
and for comms/requests/gifts.. you people just save it into your PC files

I wanna punch people who put stamps in it, like it's a piss to reorganize stamps on my page.

Stuff I commission and gifts for me gets put in storage. :/
It makes me sad.

god i totally agree, is one of the dumbest things DA has done and what pisses me off more is how many losers actually fucking USE the storage feature! :ohnoes:

dont upload something if you're gonna freaking put it into storage months or years later, jackasses...

Old comment is old, but I couldn't have said it better myself.
sharkplane77 Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2015
heh :XD: it needed to be said >:3
HachikoChwan Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2015
Hah, I forgot about this. But that's too true.
Bokeol Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014   Digital Artist
I wish deleting multiple deviations was easy as putting them all in storage. I mean, I have too many old stuff I want to delete, in storage, but it'll take forever to do one at a time.
SteelPandas Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
I know! It makes absolutely no sense. If you don't want it up anymore, just take it down.
YuraofthehairFan Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014

Seriously. If I'm not going through my favs to re-view things that make me laugh/smile/happy, I'm going through my favs to clean out the crap in storage :iconotlplz:

I absolutely hate Storage. If you don't want anyone to see it, just take it down. It's that freaking simple.
TikiTiel Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I hate it so much when after I buy an adopt or get a commission, the person who made it puts it in storage. What the actual fuck, people payed for that, why are you hiding it after you got the payment for it? Isn't that a little like stealing?

Sometimes I forget to save my stuff I buy, and I used to not do it at all due to lack of space on my computer, so I lost actually quite a few adopts this way and almost lost a few commissions (That I had payed a lot of points for. Well, a lot for me anyways because it's hard for me to make points :c) because people put them in storage. 

I especially hate it when you see it happen, and you ask the artist to unhide briefly so you can save it, and they throw a huge hissy fit and act like you're asking sooooo much of them to let you have something you payed them for. I've given up on recovering the adopts I lost because the few times I did ask for the file to save again, I was treated really rudely and I didn't even get them to unstore the right file half the time.

Hide your own personal art if you want to, but don't hide the things people paid for because thats BS if you ask me.
MonoStars Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014
Honestly people put stuff in storage maybe to look back on it to strive to improve, or because they just don't want it anymore. I store alot so I understand the mentality. It's hard for others to understand it, so I can understand the point of this.
I myself get hella annoyed when people store the stuff I like. But I try to understand why first. Some people just don't believe in deleting. I don't.
