Thank you.
and it wasn't just me, they did it to everyone that uploaded their art there..
I'm not going to be trusting them again..


I'm glad I have this new site to share my art on,
hopefully things will workout better there. :)

They just didn't seem to understand how to run a website,
thinking that it was okay to do that..

Squiby was my favorite website for 5 years,
all of this has really hurt me..

I hope things will get better soon.

I know it's a bit late, but I feel sorry for you for all the things that happeed on squiby... Do you think you'll ever return, now that the mess is slowly cleaned up? Puppydog Eyes  It would be sad if you wouldn't but I'd ubderstand...
Awesome art, anyway, keep up the great job!

I would only return if the owners sold the site and a new set of owners showed a better understanding of running an art site. 

I simply can't trust the owners, 
as they have clearly shown they do not know anything about running an art site... or any site for that matter..
and frankly, I was so hurt by what they did that I can't stand to look at the site anymore.

I'm much happier on this new site, even though it's still very new and don't have many users or features,
but at least I trust the owners there..

I was really hopeful when the site was sold. Nov 12.
the new owners said they would do their best,
and Not abandon The site.

When creating the badges they never added a delete button, even for admins. There are so much stolen art there, some of mine too.

Their new layouts, they were just horrible.
did you see the first one? I have a screenshot of it, if you would like to see.
when I saw the first layout test, it really told me something was wrong..

I made a lot of images for them, about 50 suggestions, helping them as best as I could with the new layout.
they didn't seem to use much of it.

In feb 14, a programmer actually set up a stolen image as the site background,
a very ugly bobble background. It had a parually removed watermark.


Oct 13, then they told us about new site, ridies..
then after that we didn't really see them much again..
They abandoned the site..

and now we found out about what they had been doing all along,
taking our art without asking or really even telling.

(Jun 13,) they only told us about DeviantArt, and said they would remove the art if asked.
I didn't like it and asked on all of my art to have they removed.

I think that's what hurt the most, finding out that they didn't actully remove the art, they just hid it. Finding it all still there..


I do believe they did it all with good intentions and wished to do the best for the site,
they just don't have the knowledge to do it.
