Lol, version 2's layout looks a bit like AnimationSource's layout :P

This is interesting, I've never seen the older versions before, it's strange to see how much this website has changed over the years. To be honest, version 7 is still my favourite, since this seems to be around the time I started using dA. It had that professional look and easy-to-use layout without straying too far from previous designs. I guess dA hasn't changed that much in the latest version, apart from things like the membership, browsing layout, and logo...

Yup, I'm one of those that preferred the old logo. I guess the new one isn't that ugly, but changing the thing that represents dA the most in terms of advertising/familiarity seems a bit... Unnecessary? I just don't understand why they needed to change it, especially after using the previous one all these years throughout all previous versions and establishing that brand just to knock it down.

I've also never been a member, and probably never will be, but I heard that membership went up by around £20 because of CORE. I don't know if this is true, but changing membership settings at all again seems a bit unnecessary. I also heard that dA needs the money, but apparently they cut a bunch of staff lately so why would they need so much extra money with a lower work force to pay? (Sorry if this info isn't true, I heard it from other deviants in a comments section.)

I miss the old dA, and I wish I had the chance to try the even older ones :( They look interesting, and so much different from today's dA.

I started my original account under version 2. Really liked the look of 3/4 the best, I think. 
notecardPasta Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh wow, I've seen it's evolved a very long way!
Magril Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2015  Hobbyist
I think I like version 1.2 the best (even though I wasn't around for that even on my first DA account). It looks the most organized and also reminds me of Wikipedia's old homepage skin a bit.

Version 8: Facebook clone
Thagirion Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
