I think it boils down to convenience.

I think DA has a bigger base because it includes all types of work, and not just fantasy/sci-fi/whatever it is now that Elfwood accepts. Honestly I'd rather post my work to a place where it's not going to sit through a que and where I can upload an artistic photo of a ball right next to my drawing of a fairy.
I agree much with the subjective rules point you made, too.

Re: I think it boils down to convenience.

Well back during the glory days you could upload "some" non fantasy work actually, just so long as it wasn't the bulk of your gallery. Not very many people remember these days because it was way back when the site was only a couple years old. I miss that policy. It made sense.

Elfwood is a site for fantasy artists, well guess what? fantasy artists don't always do "classic" fantasy. They blur the lines and sometimes they even do the occasional traditonal piece, that doesn't however, make them any less fantasy artists. Art is creative and expansive, and I think elfwood needs to be more accomidating (as it once was) in this area.

I think there are a lot of ways the queue system could've been fixed, and there were many good suggestions in this area, it's just none of them were implemented.
