For those who don't know (shame on you), "Deviant Guide to being a Jackass" is a sequel (in spirit) of Critique is Dead, something with a lot more writing.
Guide to Being a Jackass by ~netnessie
This deviant presents us with a whimsical guide to what to do if receiving "immortal fame as a visionary and activist for both the arts and the artistry" is what you thrive for. With a clean, simple and yet eloquent design, this is a list of all the mistakes and overrated things that may bring you popularity, but make you miss out on what deviantArt is actually all about. (

What is the point of an art community of people that can't express their opinions, say pointless stuff everytime (some silliness is healthy, though) or are close-minded?
Also: "You hated or disliked an artwork/artist? Promote a crusade against it/them." and "Use complicated words which meanings you don't know and always type a shitload of "elaborated" text, everyone will see how smart you are."
You typed "deviantions" once and you're using the Brittish and American spelling of 'favor/favour' interchangeably. I also noticed a few other typos so you might want to double-check what you wrote. Having said that, this is some excellent work; it's amusing and I can appreciate the satire and social criticism.
OH no, that's a lot to take in, how do you know if you are a Jackass or just can't comment on a piece of work or have no idea about the process it would take to create in order to critique it to help an artist out and make an excellent comment. How do you not like what you actually like so easily? Maybe I'm taking it too far, but I love what this says and stands for.
I love how you have both very accurate and snappy one-liners about how some people think dA works. And the graphics that are used just make the whole deviation a treat for the eyes. Wonderful work and the message certainly comes across great!
this deserves a fav , oh wait, if i fav i will become a jackass XD so i will only post a comment anyway you speak with the truth , this is fine tool to understand why some people do things like that...
well....it is a very funny sarcastic article and it is true because i do admit i have done some of those things just because i got lazy and had to write fast and short.but i do love all the stuff i ever faved and commented on.point taken and im gonna fave it too.hehe.
