I actually don't have any points, so I can't buy a core, but earlier today I tried purchasing some points and I'm still waiting for deviantArt to give me some transaction verification (or something like that...)

I have been on this site for a few years now, and now that I finally have gotten out of the money-less hole my family fell into for a long while there, I was seriously considering getting it.

However, two things:

1) 'Sorry, PayPal cannot be used for this purchase.' ...I have no other means of paying you people.

2) ...I just spent $24 dollars on two nice tops. Tops that I will still be wearing next year, long after my would-be 6-month membership was over. Much better use of my money, methinks.

...Not impressed, DA. Not impressed. But I do still need somewhere to post my artwork. My artwork that apparently nobody ever sees except from my writing buddies and my few fanfiction readers who I point to my artwork.

I guess dA doesn't want my money. LOL I was willing to give it to them but for a reason I'm not even sure about, they are denying me to extend my membership and telling me they don't want my money. Anyway, I think this is the last straw. I was very upset when they raised the price a year ago and I'm still mad about that a year later. Then this same promo came along during Christmas. I was able to buy one but then I wanted to buy it a second time and dA denied me. Now they are denying me again. So when this promo comes again, I won't even bother trying. Most likely dA will come up with another stupid reason for denying me. At least I get to save my money. I have an event on Facebook that I would like to promote so I think I will be using the money I was going to spend on this on that instead. Congrats dA for failing me.

At least I saved most of my money but I really would have liked to taken advantage of this offer. Anyway, I spent $7 on the Facebook ad to promote an event that my boss is hosting. The rest of the money will be used on something else in the future. Too bad dA. You lost $15 from me. Facebook got half of it instead.

I caved and got it but only because I'm tired of being bugged about my ad blocker, which I have because I've been hit with ads on here trying to install malware (it's rare, but it's happened before; and considering the risk of ransomware now there's even more to be paranoid about).  Can you guys work on trying to fix that, you know, making sure all the ads that run here are 100% virus-free?  Nobody wants to come to a site to be hit with viruses. (I'll admit, I'm not a programmer, so if there's some sort of thing that makes guaranteeing no virus ads impossible, oh well, at least I've said my piece).

Sorry if I sound snippy but I've loved using your website for a long time and I'm sad to see that you're now bugging people about the adblocker when there are virus threats afoot. 

And I agree with the others: perhaps if membership was more affordable, more people would sign up for it.  If the few who can afford it are paying high prices, you're making a lot less money than by selling it for cheaper to more people.

I couldn't have said it better- especially the part about the viruses in the ads. Usually if a site like Deviantart asks me to not use ads because it helps them get money and all, then I'll respect that and I'll turn off adblocker. But after sending a ticket to the help desk and not getting even a "I'm sorry" or a "We're working on it", I have no choice but to use adblocker on Deviantart now. Honestly, I'd feel more inclined to feel bad if they gave any indication that they cared about the viruses running around.

I don't think this sounds snippy at all actually. I've lost a computer to Deviantart Ads that contain malware in the past. It's very frustrating, especially for those of us who cannot afford to purchase the memberships. It's as you said, if more people could afford them, we would get them. It is unfair and unjust to nag us about our adblockers when all we're trying to do is protect our personal property. If dA ensured their ads were virus free and that they were placing advertisements from credible sources, most of us wouldn't even feel compelled to use adblockers.

Oruroo Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Exactly! I sent a ticket to the help desk asking if they had any plans on trying to do something at all and I got no word back- it's going on week 2 now, if I remember correctly. It's understandable that they have a lot to juggle with such a big site and there's probably a lot of people asking about the viruses in the ads, but from what I've seen they haven't said anything on he issue at all. Maybe people wouldn't use adblocker or maybe more people would be purchasing memberships if dA spent less time trying to fix what isn't broken and actually spent time (or at least give the impression of spending time) on the problems that are floating around.

Well I don't think this is fair. After all the hard work to make the payment on my credit card and it goes through in time only to be denied because of this:

There was an error in your submission.
  • Your Core Membership does not expire until 2017-02-17 12:52:15. Please come back to purchase the rebilling subscription within 6 months of your Premium Membership expiration.
You have an existing pre-paid Core Membership. Without this special offer, your next payment will be in 8 months.


Not fair at all. :(

MelMuff Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Not really. If my sub was over 6 months, it never worked. I tried it 2 or 3 other times when they had the promo with no success but now my sub was under 6 months and I tried renewing it this week and it did worked. I guess the only way around it is to use this promo whenever your sub is under 6 months.

Yeah! It does suck. I forgot to mention that a few months ago, I did submit a ticket to help desk and it took a week for them to reply and all they said is that they were working on it but the next time the promo came around, it still didn't work. And if you had the same problem this week, it means that they still haven't fixed it. Sorry you cannot renew your sub. Hopefully they will bring it back in between the time your sub is under 6 months. I think this is the 4th or maybe 5th time they brought back the promo for the past year to year and a half. I haven't exactly been keeping track so my memory is a bit vague.

Oh you contacted help desk too? I contacted them earlier this week also, but I'm not expecting a reply. Sale's over anyway, missed that bus... but yeah, like you said, guess I'll just have to wait for the next sale whenever that is. Thanks for replying! I was relieved to find your comment since nobody else seems to have this issue afaik

You're quite welcome. Help Desk did get back to me eventually but I think it took them a week or maybe it was 2 weeks. Anyway, like I said before, their reply that they were working on fixing it, quite useless as it seems that the glitch is still happening. I wish now that I would have tried to buy a membership a second time. I didn't bother as I just assumed that I would get that glitch again. And that glitch must be rare. In the past, I think I read comments by 1 or 2 other people suffering from the same problem. Anyway, good luck for next time.

When I try to purchase it, it won't work at all. Says something about 6 months. My current membership will expire in 8 months so I think I can only purchase to extend my membership either with 6 months of it expiring or I have to wait until it expires completely. That's my theory anyway.
