Thanks to many of the journals posted, and people taking their time to comment on them with their thoughts and opinions, it looks like deviantART has heard us loud and clear and have already taken steps to solve the problem.
You can check out #hq
's blog entry here
for their statement on the matter. It looks like they've decided to revert back to the old system for now, which is great. You can also keep an eye out there for any more updates concerning the resizing and auto-resizing issues many of us had with their recent update to the site.
I'm really glad we could all pool together and make a difference here. Thanks a lot guys, and thanks go to dA as well for listening to our opinions and taking our suggestions and complaints seriously. Kudos all around.
Take care everyone!
