Why I'm Not Using DA's Commissions FeatureWarning: bitchfest
TL;DR - DA is a terrible place, but I'm still here.
Ive gone just fine with running commissions on my own so far, and I don't want to have someone else governing how I'm running what is pretty much like my own business in a way. As far as I know, the commissions feature is only available to premium members, as well. I'm not sure about that, but I'm assuming since I didn't find anything in my available features about it.
