Take journals out of the "Newest deviations" section

Lets be honest, it has absolutely nothing to do there and was a huge mistake to put them there in the first place, the most awful idea I seen on this page since the messages being shoved to the corner from the middle like it didn't even matter what feedback you got for your work. This site supposed to be an ART site, where you firstly and most importantly share your art. Most deviants who I know post non-art related journals, ramblings, sharing stuff they like, etc, it has nothing, absolutely nothing to do in a section where people was suppossed to see your recent art. Please, change it back, this can't stay as it is, again as many of the new features it takes away the spotlight from the most important thing on this site, ART. Please use common sense.

    Agreed! The journals have their own section for a reason, and they practically become irrelevant as soon as the next journal is posted.

    It's Ugly. It's taking views away from my Newest artwork. Showcasing Journals when Journals ALREADY have a widget for themselves. I Don't want Journals to appear where my newest artwork or Literature should be. It's not helping my art have the chance to be showcased. I don't need "Hey Guys How You Doing?" Journals All up in my Newest Deviations Widget taking away the spotlight from "Spectacular Art I made last week" when "Hey Guys..." is already being displayed in the Journals Widget.

    Agreed. DA should do something about it soon. It's junking up everyone's gallery. Hard enough to keep that place clean as it it.

    DA, PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS!!! Having journals in with the Newest Deviations is an EXTREMELY bad idea!

    It detracts from the artwork of the artist, taking away potential views on their art just so that people might see their journals.

    Most journals are only relevant for a few days at most, to take away from artwork which is meant to be the showcase and purpose of DeviantArt seems a counterproductive move at best and downright foolhardy or malicious at best.

    Yes! Please listen, the reason I'm still on DeviantArt, where as I am not on other such sites is that here there has always been a seperation between Art and the personal blog side of things, stop diluting this site down into just another generic blog site, that's why most people hate tumblr, the art get's lost among all the other crap!

    I agree, this messes up the look and flow of the gallery. Please remove it, or give us an option to hide the journal entries in our galleries. Thank you.

    I agree, I dislike this new change with the journals now in the main gallery. It looks so jarring, random and plain stupid, and I just don't see the point in having them sandwiched in with our art pieces anyway. I'd also at least like the option to hide them, if not just undoing this awful new move. :/ I really hope this is not a permanent thing...

     Edit: ooh looks like it's a bug and not a new feature?? Ooh I hope that's the case. :''D
