Symbol(s) for the non Premium Deviants

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 10, 2013, 4:56 AM





Hello my Ryceballs. So eversince DA's recent symbol changes, I have been hearing a lot of complaints. Mostly about how regular non premium members don't even get a symbol. It makes them feel like they are not important. Its ok I hear ya I hear ya. And you know me, I am all about the people. Ry-Spirit cares. So I thought about this a lot and try to think of an appropriate symbol that best suits our non premium friends, at the end I came up with a symbol... WELL I say a symbol but its more like a string of symbols. I feel like this is the only option for it to work. And I have used myself as an example of what the symbols would look like if I am in fact a regular deviant. Ok please look below.



You may need to right click and view the image to see the whole thing. Now what does it mean? I will tell you. It stands for "Sad because no money therefore no premium membership and seems like Im not considered an artist argh *swears*.. Sigh.. oh well.. I have an idea, look I'll continue to draw and improve so I can prove to the world that I am the very best and don't need a symbol to prove my worth, You just watch me!"



I think it reflects the community's attitude to their lack of symbol very well. Also I couldn't think of a symbol for 'prove' so I just made a symbol for 'poof' to substitute it. Alright well thats my proposal, I shall talk to the appropriate people and try to get this symbols approved. Although that would be countering what the last bit of the message is saying about how you don't need a symbol to prove your worth. BUT ANYWAYS!

Ry-Spirit cares.

Well said, man. I agree with this journal entry's facetious way of arriving at the point, as well as the point facetiously arrived at.

I totally agree (This one I got because it's given)
It's discriminative, looking back I was suffering doing so many commission just to get a star after my name.

LOL. That was some message haha. Frankly it doesn't matter to me. But seeing that they went through all the trouble adding the symbol at the end. IDEA STROKE. They COULD allow non-premium and premium to further customize them, like what type of artist are they and what symbol they represent? (Or they already did. But like i said, it doesn't matter to me.) 

Just thinking out loud. :iconspongebobrapefaceplz:

Great idea but isn't it a bit too long? :O Maybe you can shrink it to something like a cupcake symbol that sais "Even though you're not a premium member, here, have a cupcake instead!" :aww: Hm... or maybe not...

Symbols contribute nothing, plus you can just install a script which reverts everything back to how they were. Problem solved.

I'm loving "The Very Best" symbol XD

I personally love the new symbols♥ And note: I don't have one. And I don't have the time nor money to get one, so too bad for me!~ Maybe one day, it's something to aim for :)
