What's funny about this is that before the new submission page I had no idea which category my things should truly be in. But I've corrected most of them. Never once seen my work on the front page.

Everyone puts photos (especially crap ones) in the Photography> Other section, because it's actually there for photography which is so uncommon, it doesn't fit in any category and so has a high feature in the front page! SO many people overuse it - it pisses me off to put it quite frankly. I made a poll about it earlier this week too...
Oh, my second most favorite is when they put photo-manipulation into photography - that's also highly misleading. And also, when people don't know the difference between editing and photomanipulation...

I always categorize my work in the right category - I'm tempted to do like all the others just so I get some fair exposure of my own work :( Or they put some way to report them... I can't comment on each deviants' work to tell them they've miscatted their work.

I've seen this a lot and it's really annoying and sad that people would do all that on purpose. Is the only way of reporting this, by reporting misplaced deviation?

XD I wonder if they actually wrote a FAQ section for it-afterall, it is something that can get people suspended/banned
