Now open source!
Thank you to all of you who offered your services, and thank you to You Are A Tiger, for offering 25% of your commissions to this project. Unfortunately, this project will never be finished. Sorry!
What is it?
standardArt is a project I've been working on. In short, it's a clone of deviantArt, the website loved by millions and despised by those with common sense. It aims to be better than deviantArt, by not being a total shit filled hole of bad art.
Where can I get it?
As of now, you can't. Currently, it's in development.
Once I finish it, or at least get it to a usable state, I'll hopefully be able to put it on a web server for you all to use.Never will be finished.
How much will premium be?
There's no premium! That doesn't mean there won't be those features, though. Since I'm doing this as a project for fun, and not as a living, I'm planning on a donation supported cost covering model. But there won't be any of the limitations of free users.
How will it be better than deviantArt?
The first method will be to have a newgrounds-like submission system. When an image is uploaded, it goes into a period of judgement. When the art has gathered enough ratings, and the rating is high enough, then it will be accepted. There will also be categories, not just for "Traditional Art" and "Digital Art", but also for MLP art, Homestuck, those stupid Q/A things, etc. And you'll be able to filter them out, just in case you really fucking hate MLP. There's also going to be better moderation.
When can we expect it done?
