Currently deviantART imposes a limit on the number of folders/subfolders allowed in all group galleries.
Unfortunately, this means DD-Catalogue can't keep up with the number of new folders created in the main dA gallery.
We feel, as a paying supergroup, this limit should be raised.

What is...Beauty?Hey guys, sorry, no funny ranting today.....What is...Beauty?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So I was on YouTube today, and somebody sent me a link to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c62Aqdlzvqk a woman who was named "the world's ugliest woman" she's blind in one eye, she can't gain any weight so somewhere in the corner of the cruel and twisted minds of people, they concocted the idea that she wasn't pretty enough to be a part of society and they deemed her "ugly." and "unbeautiful." They didn't like her, they thought she should die. Strangers told her to die; as if she was too ugly to live. Because she doesn't have the most attractive face she's ugly and worthless? I cried when I heard what she had to say, I got angry at the strangers I didn't even know because she didn't deserve that kind of treatment, nobody does. She's actually a really nice person; she believes that beauty is something that comes from within. A lot of people (especially girls) struggle with body image because people are c

Top 7 Most Inane Theist Arguments1)The concept that because "stuff" exists that some guy had to shit it out of nonexistence.Top 7 Most Inane Theist Arguments2 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a self-defeating existentialism that only results in an infiinite degradation, ladders on top of ladders and pits within pits. Stuff exists, okay, people. You know why it does? Because it fucking can. You want proof? Take your hand,raise it to approximately eye level, and slap yourself. I facepalm therefor I am.
For God to exist "stuff" automatically preceded him: unless you're telling me God isn't made of anything, which seems wildly unlikely, I think, to anyone with enough gray matter to spread over a cracker.
2)The concept that religion dictates morality.
It patently does not. God is morality's bitch: if not, then why did there need to a resurrection? Why did Jesus have to die? Because there were universal truths of justice and mercy that christians must reason demanded God to go through the pageantry of torturing and murdering his favorite kid. If this i

myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

Vegan beautyChocolate Bubble BathVegan beauty3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1/3 cup unsweetened soy milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup unscented liquid bubble bath
Heat (but do not boil) the soy milk and cocoa powder and stir until blended. Let cool.
Add the bubble bath and stir.
Pour the entire batch into the tub. Enjoy!
Anti-Zit Face Mask
1 Tbsp. cruelty-free baking soda
1-2 Tbsp. filtered water
Mix the baking soda and water together until you've got a paste.
Apply to your face and leave on for about 20 minutes.
Rinse and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.
1 aspirin tablet (contains salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores)
Crush the aspirin with the back of a spoon and add just enough water to form a paste. Apply to the blemishes and let sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing.
Another spot treatment trick is to take a dab of cruelty-free toothpaste (the white paste kind, not the gel), and apply it to blemishes. Leave on overnight. This will dry out zits quickly.

Fuck you. Pay me. -- A masterpost for artists.As an artist, you probably will be approached by various people over time. Some may be looking for commissions, others will most likely be looking for free art.Fuck you. Pay me. -- A masterpost for artists.2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here are some handy resources concerning the "free art"-people. First of all, there's this handy flowchart called "Should I Work For Free?.
If they say they'll pay you with:
-Eventual cut of the profit when profits are made
-No pay, since artists "shouldn't be sell-outs, but draw for fun"
Then run for the hills and get away as fast as you can.
Because if it's for a game, a comic or another for-profit project, the most normal response should be "Fuck you. Pay me." (worded politer, though that goes without saying).
Spec-work? -- Fuck you. Pay me.
"We don't have the budget for 20 sprite-sheets, but we'll sell this game and your name will be in the credits!" -- Fuck you. Pay me.

at first, thank you for help, many people reported that stealing Facebook page (I think some of them reported also because those people were harrassing me) and it was the most likely taken down. Thank you so much people, there was at least a tiny victory.
Here you can see INCREDIBLE argumentation they used to defend the stealing: http://woxys.deviantart.com/journal/Fail-thieves-Wolves-on-snow-fresh-PHOTOS-348714022 - just check the comments.
I can not believe it. That person only REPOSTED my and other photographers photos, usually adding no description which would inform about animals. They just posted photos.
But when I post a photo, I in 99% include description which should educate people about portraid animal - but still this person blames me from not being interested in animals????

The Fractal Universe:icontechgnotic:The Fractal Universe3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Is a photograph only a record, something created by a machine? Can photography ever truly be considered art? That question seems quaint and laughable these days, but if you do a little research you will find that once upon a time it was a raging debate. Thankfully a consensus has been reached that the agency of the photographer – his or her eye and critical mind – choosing the subject and manipulating the machine (the camera that is the art instrument) is what establishes photographs as potential works of art when created by an artist-photographer. Pretty basic common sense, huh? So why then is there now a debate as to whether FRACTAL ART is truly art – or just something produced by poking patterns into a computer? Isn't it just really random e-graffiti, a fibonacci button mash?
Here we go again… Hopefully it won’t take nearly a century again before fractal art is recog

Collection: Stellar CenturionsCollection: Stellar Centurions2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
“The very meaninglessness of life forces man to create his own meaning. Children, of course, begin life with an untarnished sense of wonder, a capacity to experience total joy at something as simple as the greenness of a leaf; but as they grow older, the awareness of death and decay begins to impinge on their consciousness and subtly erode their joie de vivre, their idealism—and their assumption of immortality. As a child matures, he sees death and pain everywhere about him, and begins to lose faith in the ultimate goodness of man. But, if he’s reasonably strong—and lucky—he can emerge from this twilight of the soul into a rebirth of life’s elan. Both because of and in spite of h
