Unrelated, but if you want to help me, please answer (some of) following questions: Which social sites/platforms do you frequent? Do these sites have easy & user-friendly access to archives? Could any of these work as a free online encyclopedia? What are your favourite online encyclopedias/wikis and why? For an online wiki, is it better to have its own site or part of an already-existing site? Should it have a masterlist of all topics, or is tags-only okay? Allowing visitor comments on a free encyclopedia, yay or nay? Anything else?

Aim: Paint deviantART gold and raise awareness about Childhood Cancer.

September marks Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in the UK, US and many other countries worldwide. During this month, help to paint deviantART gold in the name of raising awareness.

:groups: PaintdAGold was founded by pixiepot to promote the Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. You'll find great ideas and resources to help the cause as well. :heart:


Why you should help paint dA goldIf you haven't heard already, I am embarking on a project this September to paint deviantART gold in the name of raising awareness for Childhood Cancer. To find out how you can join in, click here.
Each day, an average of seven children die because of childhood cancer and around 1,600 children under the age of 15 are diagnosed with cancer each year in the UK alone and approximately 13,400 children under the age of 19 are diagnosed with cancer in the US each year. Despite these statistics, The National Cancer Institute devotes just 4% of it's budget to pediatric cancer.
More children are lost to cancer in the U.S. than any other disease—in fact, more than many other childhood diseases combined.
It is true that there are more adults diagnosed with cancer than children - the reason that governments and foundations fund more research for adult cancers - yet, on average, <b>

  The Illuminated World ContestStock & Resources
The Challenge
Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig

"The darkness took away everything she ever cared about and all that she fought for. Beaten, broken, and filled with great despair she was dragged through the conquered city to the feet of Lord Nilogen. He smirked wickedly down at the once so proud warrior now too filled with shame to even look him in the eye. He let out a dark chuckle before spreading his arms dramatically to the crowd of terrified townsfolk and speaking in a booming voice..."
"Granna! Why are you stopping! We want to hear the rest!" ,one of the little children exclaimed while bouncing in their spot around the old wizened woman's feet. They were eager to listen to more of the story as was the other six children. All wide eyed while listening to the tale. The woman smiled and leaning back in the large comfy chair she shifted her slightly grayed reddish wings. Her old hands shaking a bit as she rubbed her chin as if thinking.

  Advanced Quest: Nora    Nora sat alone in the City Center Library. She had a book with brown binding in front of her, many of the pages yellowed with wear and age. Time had left it's impression on the library, and it was a heavy weight. Nora didn't mind though. She flipped through the books' pages, reading each paragraph carefully. When she stumbled upon a world she didn't know, which was rare, she would flip open a dictionary next to her and look up the word, and then get caught in the reading and end up reading a few pages of the dictionary, before getting back to her main book.
    On either side of her were stacks of books, almost another table's worth in height. Several smaller stacks were piled around her feet, and she had one on her lap that she'd look to every now and then.

In the dark of night, everyone in the Zeenuian Kingdom was heading to bed; the Emperor retired to his chambers and Sheen and Dorkus were relieved of their duties for the day. 
Sheen went with Nesmith back to his temporary home on Zeenu until they can get the rocket functioning again so that they can return to Earth, which would probably lead to the dismay of the Emperor since the latter had taken a liking to the alien boy. 
Meters away from Sheen's home, Dorkus and Pinter retired to their bedroom with Dorkus sitting on spikes, which the Sorua had gotten used to sleeping on over the years; he did have a regular normal bed with cushions and everything else, but it seemed that he did not want to lie in that bed for reasons u

#our generation contest

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 21, 2014, 9:43 AM
The 70s were a wild, hippie-filled time, Michael Jackson and Madonna set the tone in the 80s while wonderfull movies like Forrest Gump, The Sixth Sense, Mrs Doubtfire (bless you, my captian), Tatanic and many more dominated the 90s followed by great polical change (the first black president of the US, the first woman as Germanys Federal Chancellor, e.g.) in the 2000s.


So many things are happening in the world. So many things to leave a mark (good, bad or neutral) on you as time passes.

Now my question is: What defines your generation? Was it a certain couples of year, only one event or the overall "feel"? :)


Put your impressions down on your paper or your screen or whatever you can hold long enough to show to others. :giggle:

Design me an OC Contest!

Sun Sep 21, 2014, 8:24 AM
Well, two OC of mine: Stud Di-Eh and Gorgona Fulff

Stud is the eccentric captain of a small spaceship, the Fuzz 31. He's a Strandean. Strandeans are tall, thin humanoids with long limbs.
As stated above, he is quite eccentric, hyper (looks like he's always sugar high) and kind of a jester. He's also one of the best pilot in the whole Universe.

Gorgona is his second in command. She's a Bordian. She's ginger (and that's all I now about her looks). She's feisty, brave, short-tempered, she has a strong personnality and don't like sillyness.

Both are aliens so don't hesitate to add/remove limbs, use rare skin colors, etc...

***

What do you expect?
It's a "design an OC" contest, so, I guess it's quite clear: design my OC's! :) More precisely, I'd like you to design the species AND the outfit(s).

Do I have to draw both OC?
Nope. You can choose to design only Stud or Gorgona. Or both! It's up to you.

How many entries are allowed per participant?
As many as you want, really! Nonetheless, you have to make one entry per design.

Do you judge quality? 'Cause I'm not a very good artist (me think).
Do not worry, the design is what I'll judge. Of course, I'm hoping for better quality than stickmen ;P

Well, that's cool, but what will the winner(s) win?
There'll be two winners; one for each character.
As for the prices, each winner will receive 500 :points:

Oh, you didn't tell when the deadline is!
This contest will end the 31st of October (but it would be extended if necessary).

***

This contest will be cancelled if there is less than 5 entries per character, so spread the word!
If you have any question, feel free to ask in the comments.

Good luck, everyone!


This theme will be: Halloween

Anything appropriate and halloween themed ;3

Deadline: Sunday 9/28/14

There will be three winners: 1st, 2nd, 3rd!

Hello, My Beauties! As you may know, It is September-Which is also Suicide Prevention month! I would like to make a stand against this; I want to share MY STORY, WITH YOU!
I was and am a suicide victim/survivor, I know of alot of deep, dark, writers and artists who have had the same experience, I know I am abit late, (seeing as it is the 21st of september) but this topic definitely hits home for me, as I know It does for many of you, Its not just for people who have seen it, or done it, but also for the people who feel like giving up, ones that are strong, but suffering, this month is for ALL of us! I want my followers to spread the words! Tell your followers! encourage your followers to spread it on to their followers-and so on, and so forth. so here is my proposition! For every follower that I get, I will release one chapter of my suicide/depression story, Encourage a fellow deviant to release their story, and I will donate an hour of my time, to raising money for sexual assault/suicide victims, I will keep you all posted on how much money you have raised for the cause and open a donation box for points on my DA, I will use them to buy art to sell for fundraisers, You may also send in your art! I will be doing this until the 21st of october (so a month) PLEASE! DO SHARE! LIKE COMMENT! WATCH! GIVE ME NEW IDEAS TO SUPPORT THE CAUSE!

I WILL TRY TO UPDATE NEWS EVERY DAY OR EVERY OTHER DAY!
