I have a bone to pick with you. One of the biggest complaints I have had and have seen others having on this site for the longest time is the inability to change their username. To change from something embarrassing your middle school aged self thought was pure genius was such a huge hassle that for many people it simply wasn't worth it. Finally I see two users that I watch use the newly implemented feature to change their username.
Of course, I've disliked mine for a while, and have wanted to switch over to the one that I use on most websites now. But when I got to the page, I saw that deviantart is requiring PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP for this change.
It's not a terrible thing to want to make money, but on a feature that took way too long to impose and that ought to be pretty basic? That's underhanded and cheap. I am hoping it is only as a premium membership deal as they continue to implement it, as code monkeys do require payment to keep everything up to snuff. I am not unreasonable and know running a website costs some serious cash, especially when it's one this big. But SCREWING OVER your customers and loyal site goers is not the way to do that.
Other shady practices with proper censoring aside, this is just upsetting.
