Group Journal Comment Messages for Admins
Over the past few months, many members have been asking to bring back the feature where Group admins receive Message Center notifications when members comment on their Groups' journals. This week, we brought back this functionality and messages will now be appearing for all new comments.
Group journal messages will appear for all users who have administrative powers over that Group's journal. For example, if the "Contributors" admin class is set to 'Can

You've had the idea, you've built your emotes, you've put them all together in an animated GIF which you upload for the world to enjoy. The comments start coming in; "Sweet", "Cute", Love it", "Why is it so slow?". All well and good, apart from that last one.
So you take a closer look and either:
a) you scratch your head and think "it wasn't that slow when I built it"
b) you think it looks fine but other people are still saying it's slow
So what's the problem? The answer is Stupid Browsers. Simple as that. Our browsers are just rubbish at rendering fast animated GIFs.
An animated GIF file consists of a number of image blocks, each with it's own control block.&

The United States Congress is proposing two laws that address the problem of wide-scale unlicensed distribution on the Internet of motion pictures, songs, trademarked goods, and patented pharmaceuticals.
One of the proposals is called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and would direct search engines in the United States to block Internet sites outside the United States that are primarily engaged in distributing unlicensed content.Another proposal called PIPA (Protect IP Act) would block websites located in the United States as well.The Obama administration is putting a stop to these proposals. It wants the Internet companies and the content companies to get together and come up with more functional and less destructive solutions.

Cons: Future * Past.So Im back from Katsucon and recovered from the flu!Cons: Future * Past.4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Sort of...well no. Just I am clearly disappointed in Katsucon.
To be fair ppl hyped it up like crazy and of course the year I go is the year the photo nazis go full force on the "NO PRO PHOTOGRAPHER" rule. So that sort of shit on my weekend since as you guys know - I was looking forward to all the cool shooting opportunities. That compounded with the fact I couldnt find most of my friends just sort of meh. So im home now and im pretty much at 90% with the occasional coughing fits ( as you can hear in my most recent Behind The Scenes video lol).

Since the death of my home con (I-CON) - animeNEXT in NJ is slowly taking its place.
Its a fun little con that I can dress funny and take all the photos I want. I was pretty impressed with how little they gave a fuck when i was lugging around my AB800 with a beauty dish lol So this year im really looking forward to sh

I'll be honest. I wasn't expecting the backlash to be so violent. But I guess I should expect this sort of thing whenever it comes to video games. At any rate, a lot of stuff is being thrown around haphazardly and I wanted to address some of the main complaints/defenses about my criticism of Quiet's design.
"She's got camo skin! She's dressed this way for a reason!"
You know, you can come up with any number of reasons for a character to be scantly clad. But at the end of the day it's still a scantly clad conventionally attractive female character. Not to put to fine a point on it but having Mystique walk around naked because her skin changes color doesn't stop her from being a source of obvious pandering T&A. So I'm sorry, but that whole "you'll be ashamed for slut-shaming her" excuse doesn't hold water with me, especially after Kojima outright said that her design was to sell
Monthly Street Challenge - AprilIn 2014 The-Yard-Collective launches Monthly Street Challenge with a new theme each month.Monthly Street Challenge - April3 months ago in Personal More Like This
The April theme is: SURREAL.
Consider the theme from all aspects. What is it? What does it mean? What could it be? What could it become through your mind and eyes? How could you interpret it perhaps in a new way? Is there a side of it we have not yet seen? Is it too obvious in itself? Is it possible to twist it and turn it and make it something else, something new and inspiring? These are the kind of thoughts that should be going through your head every time a new theme is being announced.
Submit your Challenge photographs into The-Yard-Collective Favourites: ‘APRIL Challenge’ folder. The Challenge folder will be open for submissions between 1st and 21st of April. All submissions to that folder will be automatically approved without the regular voting system and there is no limit on how many photographs you can submit, so please, please, please; use your be

During Artist's Toolbox weeks, I've published articles dedicated to watercolor tools (Watercolor Equipment I - Basic Tools, Watercolor Equipment II - Additional Tools).

Laying a wash
A wash is a large area in a watercolor painting where the paint flow and diffusion have been manipulated to efface individual brushstrokes. Within wash areas, color transitions are usually gradual and span analogous hues. Laying a wash is one of the most satisfying tasks in watercolor painting. Essentials of this s

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunde

Reduced to AshesA Phoenix to Arise
If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it.
Today, Lady Gaga’s throne as a reigning pop diva is a 24 carat gold wheelchair, emergency hip surgery forcing the cancellation of her latest tour – a betrayal more devastating for her than for the typical performer, given her relationship with her fans. Her body has finally broken in sacrifice to the needs of her monsters for constant contact and reassurance. The question now is whether this brutal brush with her own mortality will result in the pop goddess pulling back from the edge – or only drive her to new heigh

Randomman has been unbannedPhew! Well, THAT was hard work.Randomman has been unbanned2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So yeah, as you might recall, I said that Randomman was banned for "hacking" a Minecraft client.
Now don't ask me what that means, I haven't the faintest idea what that involves.
So usually, to ask to be unbanned, you have to appeal on the Orcworm forum, and they say if you are unbanned or not.
In this case, Random couldn't appeal because he didn't have an account on it, so I had to argue his case for him.
I decided to write it in the "complaints" section of the forums, because I was complaining about the ban.
so I wrote the complaint/appeal out for him, at the end of which I asked what proof they had that he hacked.
And the day after, they said that they DID have proof, but they lost it when they reformatted, whatever that is, their computer.
they also had a timeframe where they had to post the evidence within 24 hours, and it seemed they didn't manage this so they unbanned Random.
Things not to do when making a sprite1. Save it as a JPEGThings not to do when making a sprite2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Saving pictures as a JPEG will cause a "Color bleed". While some people do this on purpose for photos and such, it is a horrible idea to do it on a sprite, the best way to ruin a sprite sheet is to save it as a jpeg.
This should go without saying, painting sonic the hedgehog red and throwing a spike on his forehead does not make it your own original sprite! This makes Fankenspriting look professional by comparison. This is the kind of thing that makes spriters look like a bunch of unoriginal little kids trying to pass other peoples work off as their own.
I myself have frankensprited before, which is where you mix and match the various parts of sprites to make something that has no resemblance to the original, but this should only be done for the point of learning the basic stuff. You should credit everything you use, and trying to claim it as your own completely original work is not the brightest move bucko.
One of these days...Last week was kind of good...One of these days...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I actually was able to hope that people are starting to have more sympathy and empathy in them... I didn't run into certain kinds of comments on youtube that I would have found quite rude and ignorant... till again today...
Or maybe my flu made me ignore those kinds of comments...
In any way... wouldn't it make sense, that you try to give some unknown person a good impression of yourself? 'speciallly if you want to be friends? I mean, if you are the one commenting on someone else's page... these people does have rules... at least most of them do. If doesn't, those people most likely are rude themselves...
Why people are rude? They have said that it's entertaining to some people, if the manage to get someone angry enough to start a fight... I find that interesting, since we have computers, gaming platforms, TVs, DVDs and all that today... but people seem to be even more bored, than ever before!
Maybe they are feeding us information too much in these days...
