it's on the front page because look at the favorites and views xD when stuff if popular it gets on the front page.
Also: piggies are adorable. <33333

Some fellow deviants were posting rude, unnecessary, and just horrible comments on =Smoshen's pictures of her gecko that had some edits, complaining about how it shouldn't be on the front page or it doesn't deserve to be there. It's not her choice if it is or isn't, it's the other deviants who like it, therefore making it more popular and practically earning it's own spot on the front page for just a few hours.

Yes, it is. Too many assumptions are made of little things any more.

Wow, ok oops.
I didn't mean to make you make a journal. I assume you spend hours perfecting your drawings, in-fact I know you do, I've seen your live streams. But as the pictures of your gecko, which were not shot in a studio OR professionally edited probably took you five minutes to take, I do think its unfair they got front page.
I wasn't saying photography is awful or whatever it is you're trying to suggest, I was actually trying to be sympathetic, because those photos, out of all your work, were not your finest.

Sorry if I hurt you're feelings, I'll just go back to my corner so you can go tell a five-thousand of you're watchers how you're point and shoot gecko photos are comparable to a professional photographer.

Um, she never said anything even remotely close to that. First of all, whether or not her photos get on the front page isn't in her control. Second, If she wants to take a quick shot of her pet and post it, she has every right to regardless of whether it's professional or not.
She never once said her photos were as good or better than others, simply that she shouldn't have to deal with people telling her that something out of her control is unfair and she shouldn't be allowed to post such things.

Exactly! I mean, yes, it's her pet, and yes she loves it, so why can't she post it on here with a few effects?
Answer: There is no reason why she shouldn't, because she can if she wants.

Secondly, she never said any names. She doesn't have a choice whether her pictures or anyone else's lands on the front page or not. It's not in her control, as stated by *BeefyStew.

Being sympathetic? Really? She doesn't need sympathy in this. I enjoyed the pictures because the edits were simple and not overly done like some 9-year-old on a photo editing site sticking 'CUUUUTEEE!!!!' stickers on it and changing the colour to where you can't even tell what it was originally.

Lastly, that was just completely uncalled for and rude. She's not boasting about her pet, she's just showing her simplistic pictures with minor edits to us. She doesn't have five-thousand watchers, so in saying that, you're making it seem as if she's a big shot.
