Are highly intelligent or very talented people better able to hide their misery from loved ones, thus making it all the harder to “read” them and help them?

Hey everybody, it's fall, school's back and a chill is in the air. Weeks like this it seems like the fun of summer are gone for good, so here's a giveaway to cheer you up!

Back by popular demand, it's my turn to give back. 
Thanks to everyone who already made the previous giveaway such a success!  

New Kiriban OPEN
The number to reach is is 371,117. 

For the first time, i'm having two kiribans in a week to double your chances of winning.
In case you don't know, a kiriban is when you watch a person's page count, then if you happen to see the special number, take a screenshot of it to win a prize! You must include the clock in your screenshot to qualify. 

As for the point giveaway, There are a few important changes and NEW PRIZES.

I'm giving away 100 points to one lucky winner and 50 points to THREE lucky winners on 9/24.
:new: Two other people will win a 1 month feature on my page.
If you're really lucky, one person will win a FREE COMMISSION  of any simple animal, character or fanart of something they enjoy. I might draw your OC if I really like it too. 

Commission Examples: 

Fera by Kiwikku I WILL BEAT YOU UP AFTER SCHOOL by Kiwikku = we come in peace = by Kiwikku 

Round everything up, and this giveaway is my biggest ever, with more than 
1000 :points: worth of features, points and commissions being handed out. 

One cannot win both the kiriban and giveaway, or more than one prize.

Here's how to enter:

Step 1: Fave this journal. +fav 
Step 2: Be a watcher. Added to my devWatch! 
:new: Step 3: Leave a comment explaining why you want the points and should win/use them.

And that's it! The winners will be announced at the end of the contest. All pickings are done at random so it is fair.


Of course, even if you don't win, you can ALWAYS get free points by watching, faving and llamaing the featured deviants on my page. Click here for more info and rules/requirements.

-they have to have the colors gold silver and bronze 
its how theyre born

theres nekos outside of the royal family that are bronze,but not very many.
the towns people are usually gold or silver
the places they have silver,gold and bronze:

plus,theyve always had this preference

-they have gems on their boots
theyre usually the second color they have

SE2014- 10 days left (wishlist, entering)

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 17, 2014, 3:40 PM
hi everyone~! Another small update for you all :iconsweethugplz:

it is going to be the 27th of September in only a few days, so that means that there are only 10 days left
for you to enter the Halloween exchange and for the people who ARE entered already to make a wishlist! 

if you want to participate in this spooky exchange, please click on this icon and follow the rules on there~!

and to those that have entered and do not know what to include in their wishlist, simply write the following:

at LEAST 2-3 characters that have no sexual,gory or violent designs

what you would prefer your gift to be (not AMG IT HAS TO BE THIS OR ELSE, just what you would prefer)

a bit of explanation of these characters, and maybe ideas on what the secret ghost //aka. person who will be drawing for you //// should draw 
and anything else you would like to add > u <

and either mention me, add the :iconsecret-exchange-2014: icon in your wishlistOR link your wishlist to me so i know you've done and completed everything~! <33

and yes it CAN be a wishlist....not preferred of course but you still can do that.

there are no exceptions for these deadlines.

if you did not enter before or on that day, and if you didn't make your wishlist before the end of the 27th, then you cannot enter and are disqualified.

Yes it's harsh, but there are now over 100 participants and i can't allow anyone who feels like theyre a special snowflake to just ignore the rules everyone else has to obey.

If you really wanted to enter then you would have followed the deadlines, or planned ahead.

but on a much less harsher note, i am so glad we are now at 100+ participants~! Thank you all so much for your collaboration guys :love: I look forward to seeing your wishlists and soon, your lovely artworks!

Okay, this is the first group contest. And since it is the first, everybody who enters will receive a free sketch of any of your OCs (only one) by me, and any other (I'm talking to you guys) who decide to donate to the entry prizes or grand prizes.

Since this is the first group contest, it will relate to the group itself. So every entry must have:
  1. The group name: DoodleDumperPlace
  2. Your depiction of yourself, it doesn't have to look exactly like you, it could even be your favorite OC or whatever, just put a person who is unique to yourself
  3. A background comprised of doodles or some of you favorite character, basically anything
  4. COLOR! The only thing that I would like to see in color is detail number 2

Prize for entering:
A uncolored sketch of any one of your OCs by Me
Any entry prizes donated by kind members

Prize for DONATING:
Two uncolored sketches of up to two different OCs or yours drawn by Me
And a colored sketch of one of your OCs by Me

Please, submit as many entries as you want. They can be digital or traditional.

FOR MEMBERS OF DoodleDumperPlace ONLY!!!

I've got 6,105 pagesviews myself, but that led me to wonder; do other people keep track of their pageviews and do they really matter that much to you?
