What is going on with the popular section of DA the Front Page?

They use to have decent stuff and everyday I found a few things I liked. Then recently it looks like it has been drawn by 12 year olds. I hardly see the usual "popular artists" (those same artists that make the front page every other day). It's just irritating because I see photos taken of Bratz dolls, demotivationals, horrible cosplay photos, stupid emo ass poems, artwork by 12 year olds apparently, and of course, the crass vajayjay shots turned black and white to make look "artistic".

Can DA not monitor this and at least make sure this crap stays off the front page? I expect to actually see quality artwork, amazing traditional art, stunning photography, and beautiful digital works. Whatever is going needs to be fixed ASAP.

And it gets more annoying for decent artists who get about 3 favs per deviation and less than 30 views and these facebook snapshots are pulling in crazy amounts of favs/views.

I'm just really confused as to why I am seeing this on the front page everyday I check it. I think I'm going to stop looking, because I know there are amazing artists on this site, I watch them!!

Is everyone else seeing what I'm seeing or am I having a glitch like everyday? lol (I even checked to make sure I wasn't on "newest" thats how bad this artwork on the front page is currently).

It was back working last night, but all last week and every so often it is messing up.

I've noticed it looks like a bunch of crap up there. I keep checking to see if Im in newest section instead of the popular
It's so annoying! And makes it harder to use dA as a decent time waster :/

I know, it's just been so terrible!! And yeah, I like to look through stuff on the popular page (to waste time too) but also find new artists who stuff I haven't seen. But apparently that is not happening any time soon. They seriously need to fix it.

It's been like that for days now, super annoying! I think it's fixed now though, I just tried it again and it looked much better

Ok I just checked it, definitely is looking much better. This seems to happen very often though, so who knows how long it will last.

This has been going on for awhile it seems and I don't understand why DA hasn't fixed it or at least addressed the issue! I use to like the popular page but now I won't go anywhere near it.

Yeps, this is a plague... but to be honest I really don't know how could they fix such a thing. Art is ambiguous, so whoever posts those photos and stuff can always that those things are art to them :iconthinkingplz:. I think the best we can do it's search for stuff that we like, look at the daily deviations and ignore the popular page :XD:
