I only went Beta Testing for like 5 minutes to check it out. Shit looks like a combination of Tumblr and Instagram. Fugg dat noise. I like it the way it is now. My only wish is that you can customize the eff out of your profile more. For those who don't have userstylish or something similar, my dA profile looks rather sexy because of the skins and userstyle I have set up.
Here's a random set of screencaps of how dA looks to me:sta.sh/029kvc5wu8hq

But yeah. That's just me. I personally don't find it too appealing, but if it happens, I'll just get used to it somehow.
