Yesterday I went to split up one of my favourites folders which had gotten a little bloated at 37 pages of fav's.  So I decided to move half the contents into a new folder.  Easy peasy; it's something I've done often over the last four years because lets face it; nobody wants to work their way through humungous fav folders! 

So I did it like I always do.  Move over one page at a time until it's done.  Should have taken about 30 to 40 minutes max.  BUT after about the 5th or 6th page move, I suddenly get a message on screen saying I've exceeded the number of fav's I can add in a certain amount of time!  WTF???  :omfg:

First I'm not adding any fav's!  I'm SIMPLY MOVING THEM!!!  Second, when I check the new folder over 80% of that page of fav's is GONE!  It's not in the new folder yet it's been removed from the old folder.  In other words deviant arts has simply eliminated them!  Try again with half a dozen fav's, same error message and only two appear in the new folder while all six disappear from the old.  Damn am I pissed.  :rage:

Through trial and error, I find that it seems to crop up after about four or five pages and I have to wait up to about an hour or so between each attempt.  So obviously DA has instituted some new asinine policy without bothering to warn us or tell us what in hell it is or how it works?  And couldn't be bothered to check to see if it would accidentally delete user's own previous favs?  Therefore a routine splitting up of a single folder took me most of a day and the loss of about 4 pages of fav's that I can never recover!  (Since I don't know which one's were deleted. They still show up in my overall favourites count and listings even though they're gone!) Thank you very much Deviant Arts!  :frustrated:

Sooooo for whichever DA cretins thought this was a great idea and even worse either could not be bothered, were too lazy or too stupid to make sure it wouldn't delete previous favs  (probably all of the above).......  I place on you the following Gypsy curse!  That your car refuse to start on the coldest day of this winter, that your girlfriend dumps you and that you get the worst case of the flu you've ever had in your entire life!  :rage:

So if you wish to escape this curse; get off your fat asses and FIX THIS !!! 

Yah like that's going to happen!  sigh........  So a warning to anybody moving fav's around from one folder to another.  Don't do more than about a hundred or so at a time and be prepared for the possibility of loosing up to 5 to 10 percent of them permanently!  :(

My Favourites Folders

MY INTENTION!

To make the most comprehensive and best favourites display on Deviant Arts! Showcasing the very best of Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Cosplay, Portraiture and all things cute and cuddly!

Plus in the Adult realm all the very best (or at least most interesting) of DID, Gay, Yuri, Pinups, Transgender, Fetish or anything else that catches my amusement and/or interests!

I'd say the collections are about equally divided between general and adult material.

HOW THEY'RE PICKED!

For smaller sites I'll go in and pick out not just the best; but examples from all the artist's various genres and time periods. I'll generally limit this to half a dozen pic's but if necessary; I'll repeat this in more than one Fav folder until you can get a pretty good overview of his/her works! Then check back once or twice a year and update as necessary.

For larger sites with numerous artwork, interest or volume of art; I'll generally start with the oldest and pick out one or two good examples from each page and work my way forward. For sites with exceptional numbers or constant updates; I may do up to six or seven each in multiple folders. Then come back every 2 to 3 months until it's all covered.

HOW THEY'RE ORGANIZED!

Everything of a general or family nature will get posted to the main fav's page first. As new stuff get's added, the oldest will be moved to the individual collections. Fav's of a more adult nature will get posted immediately to the adult collections.

As for the collections; those at the top are of a more general or family friendly nature. This way families and kids can safely surf through my fav's without hitting a raft of those blank DA placeholders. In fact, they may never even notice them.

THE INDIVIDUAL COLLECTIONS!

FANTASY AND SCI-FI DRAWINGS, PAINTINGS - Pretty much as the name implies. Mostly fantasy and mostly family friendly although there's quite a few bare-breasted elf's in there as well! (Hey, don't blame me, blame the elf's!)

FANTASY AND SCI-FI 3D, CG, PHOTO, FLASH - The same as above except in 3D and CG formats. There's also the odd Photo manipulation and Flash animation as well.

COSPLAY AND PORTRAITURE - All the best of the best. 90% family friendly. Adult stuff is further down.

CUTIES, COUPLES AND FAMILY - This is where all the cute stuff goes. You know, the sort of drawings you see and immediately go, "Oh my God, how Cute! I've got to fav this!" The title is pretty explanatory.

CUTIES, COUPLES AND PINUPS - Similar to the above except the cuties are a little more adult or in lingerie. Pinups also go here as well. A bit of an overlap with the above.

CUTIES, COUPLES AND PINUPS 3D - As above but in 3D, CG, etc.

COMICS, CARTOONS AND PARODIES - As a lot of humour tends to be adult in nature, I'd say this folder is about half family friendly and half adult. In addition to comedy, there are some nice little cartoons and a lot of parodies in there as well.

DAMSELS IN DISTRESS DRAWINGS, PAINTINGS - Pretty much as the name implies. This is where the adult stuff starts. Some lovely drawings and paintings in here if you like the genre. If you don't, well...., just don't watch it! In numerous folders as the originals just kept getting too damned big! (Hey, there's a reason they call this site Deviant Arts!) :blush:

DAMSELS IN DISTRESS 3D, CG AND PHOTO - Basically the same as the above except the artwork is in 3D and CG formats. There's also stuff from Second Life, Photo Manip's and adult photography as well. In numerous folders for the same reasons as above.

TG, TF, YURI AND BOYS IN DISTRESS - Here you'll find everything else adult from gay, yuri (girl love), crossdressing, boys in bondage, adult babies, age regression, transformations (human to animal, boy to girl, etc.), spanking, tickling, leather, rubber, pony play, fetish, etc.. and anything else that doesn't fit in above. It's quite a variety. There's also some light sado/masochistic stuff for those into it but not too extreme. Once again, if you don't like any of the above, don't look. That's why I put it at the bottom. In numerous folders.

DID, TG, TF or YURI STORYLINES - As above but in multi-posting storylines. More than 5 or 6 in any storyline will go here. Once again, if you don't like them, don't look! In two folders.

Anyhoo, that's the way I've set up my fav's. I hope you like it. The main intention is not only to make it easier for you to find what you like, but more importantly to highlight some of these wonderful little gem's on the site that may have been over looked or buried and give them a second chance at life. Let me know if it's working?
