As I said It is not a disrespect on the user it is a disrespect on the retarded team deciding DD. The work is great and 3 years ago it may have been worth a DD. But to give one now for it seems slightly retarded.
I dont think any persons work is bad or not amazing as a lot of people even begginers are better than me at things. DD just seems to have become a random choice rather than work that makes you stop and think.
DD use to be a badge of honour its now just a badge of luck
i will have to agree with you that there are a lot more designs that deserve the DD but for me going through new designs i feel like im looking at the same piece of work over and over again....boring to me. Not many now have the creativeness or imagination to create something that isnt already out there and to me thats what DA used to be always something new and exciting to see.
The badge was never for honour it was a praise on the artist and his work being shown, never luck.
