Just in from CNN HQ

Just in from CNN HQ

In an effort to turn the U.S. Economy around, Congress is seriously considering the cost–savings of merging Valentines Day and Halloween on the calendar.

Show us what this unholy merger of all things creepy/kissy might look like!

CNN Special Announcement:

As our slow–growth economy continues to grind on at its slow pace, the U.S. Government has found it necessary to institute necessary cost–cutting measures that may seem unusual. Economists, however, say the savings will be in the billions, if not trillions, of dollars if these “asymmetrical outside the box” measures are taken.

First up: The Merger of Halloween and Valentine's Day

These two holidays, while representing no major Judeo–Christian events and not the occasion for business, banking or school closures, have become twin generators of middle–class cash outlay and credit card debt accrual, second only to Christmas.

The government needs your help.

Artists of online arts communities, like deviantART, are being asked to help Congress decide on the feasibility of a Valentine’s/Halloween holiday merger. Illustrated examples of Halloween–themed Valentine’s day cards and Valentine’s–themed Halloween artworks are being solicited, with the best ones to appear on the dR website all through the month of October until Halloween.

You have until October 20 to create your own Valentine's Day / Halloween mashup holiday. On October 25th we will showcase The Best of The Outrageous Best as a Stock Market feature on depthRADIUS!


(Somebody please draw Wolf Blitzer turning into the werewolf we know he secretly is!) Superior short–short stories (1–3 pages) relating Valentine’s–Halloween parties, darkly romantic dates, new traditions and revived demons will be published.

Poetry is sought—odes to the new holiday. Pictures of innovative Cosplay and other costuming reflecting the dual Valentine’s–Halloween celebration are encouraged—as is photography capturing mysteries of both romance and sorrow in singular images.

In an effort to turn the U.S. Economy around, Congress is seriously considering the cost–savings of merging Valentines Day and Halloween on the calendar.

Deviousness Award

Tue Jul 3, 2012, 8:24 AM

CypherVisor is one bad-ass, top of the scale, crazy CSS coder and deviantART customization resource provider. We are honored to have him in our community for all that he does for FREE. Every premium member or a super group in deviantART seems to be using atleast one of his resources to beautify his/her page.

The Deviousness Award is the highest thing deviantART can give to such a "psycho" for creating a journal skin which looks exactly like a deviousness award widget and is actually given to exceptional deviants around deviantART. If you want to fuck your own profile page with this outrageous skin go hug him and tell him that you love him.

Well, gentlemen, when the shit hits the fan, some guys run and some guys stay. Here's CypherVisor facing the fire and there's George hiding in Big Daddy's pocket. And what are you doing? You're gonna reward George and destroy CypherVisor

Even after getting hit by shit, being called a psycho and crazy, he's always caring for others and helping them each and everyday with their doubts and problems. Now that's the stuffs pyscho's are made of. And that, my friends, is called integrity. That's called courage. We are happy to award him with the Deviousness Award of 1943. Congratulations!
-awarded June 1943

In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.

What's New

Username Changes Now Available

DeviantART has been around for almost twelve years, and in that time, we've seen artists grow from hobbyists to students to professionals. As a member of any community, your identity can change and grow over time.

For years, we've been getting requests from the community asking for the ability to change usernames. We realize that as an artist, it's important to give you the ability to change your personal brand, just as you change your interests, skills, and art types.

This week, we added the ability to change your username in your Settings. To change your username, you must have an active Premium Membership.  (The reason there is a "fee" associated with the change is because switching usernames is a complex technical process that can create confusions for fellow deviants.) 

Improved Journal Widget

The Journal widget on your profile can now be customized to display one long entry, multiple short entries, or one long with the rest short.

New Journal Widget by danlev

There is now a pencil menu on the corner of each Journal you publish, making it a bit easier to edit your Journals without having to visit the Journal's page and then clicking the "edit" button.

Your Feedback

In last week's discussion, we received some great feedback on our discussion questions. Feedback included: 

  • Collaborative drawing features in deviantART muro were a very popular idea.
  • Many deviants would appreciate the ability to switch between a simple and advanced group management system.
  • Some deviants would like the ability to toggle whether or not journal skin changes were retroactively applied.
  • Some deviants would also like additional documentation on Journal Skins and related features. From ~Nironan12
Bugs, issues, and feedback from previous Site Updates

Discuss!  Lightbulb

Last week we received some great feedback on Group affiliates and member management. One of our discussion questions this week is groups-related, while the other is related to the visual display of signatures: 

Group Discussions: How do you feel about the admin discussion forums on Groups? We've seen a lot of members attempting to have conversations using the comments on a Group's profile, but would you like to see a discussion forum feature specifically for these types of discussions?

Group Discussions by danlev

Signature Visual Changes: Some members suggested that font color of comment signatures should be a bit lighter, making it clearer that it is not part of the actual comment. It's also a possibility that emoticons and avatars in signatures could be slightly faded out. What do you think?

Po pierwsze mam nadzieje, że nasz Founder nie będzie mi miał za złe tego Bloga, gdyż pisze go z własnej inicjatywy.

Artykuł ze strony Polskiego Radia.

Warto też przybliżyć Wam adres strony z Facebooka oraz journal jednej z Membersów naszej grupy akreon ACTA - do misiaków z polski

Zachęcam Was także do pozostawienia pod tym Blogiem opinii na ten temat.



:new: Kilka słów w ramach komentarza Sizhiven Link do wypowiedzi z drugiej strony oraz nieprzetworzona przez Polską Wikipedie wersja tekstu porozumienia

PS. Zaznaczam, że nie ma wyżej mojej opinii na ten temat, umieszczam to w celach przede wszystkim informacyjnych oraz ze względu na to, że nie mam w tej materii wykrystalizowanego zdania chce poznać inne punkty widzenia.

Commissions on deviantART

Thu Dec 27, 2012, 5:09 PM
The deviantART community is full of talented artists and art appreciators willing to pay for custom artwork. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re launching Commissions on deviantART to all Beta Testers, a feature that connects artists with clients, creating custom artwork in exchange for real earnings. 

Commissions is a Profile Page widget that allows artists to market their talents by advertising what they are available to create. Potential clients can easily send artists a Commission request, which an artist can either accept or reject.

Profits made through the Commissions widget can be withdrawn as real earnings -- through check, PayPal, or converted to deviantART Points.

Generate Real Earnings Through Custom Creations

Screen Shot 2012-12-21 at 10.26.14 AM by wreckling

1. List Commission availability on your profile
The Commissions Widget showcases your offerings, showing potential clients that you are accepting requests. These commission prices are based on 
deviantART Points, are set in increments of 10, and can range from 10 to 4000 Points.

Screen Shot 2012 12 21 At 10 29 04 Am By Haldron-d by wreckling

2. Clients request Commissions
Commission requests are sent to the artist’s Message Center, allowing them accept or reject the request.

Screen Shot 2012-12-21 at 10.41.13 AM by wreckling

3. You receive payment, you deliver artwork
Artists can track their Commission transactions and generate real profit through My Earnings, garnering 80% royalty on each transaction. Earnings can then be withdrawn as a check, PayPal, or converted to deviantART Points.

Try it out!

All Beta Testers can now install the Commissions widget on their page, so give it a try by heading to your Profile! Installed Commissions widgets are visible to everyone on deviantART, so you can offer your own commissions, and you can request commissions from your fellow artists as well!

Please note: Currently, the Commissions widget can only be installed by Beta Testers, but everyone has the ability to request a Commission from Beta Testers during this testing period.  

If you encounter any bugs or issues, please file them in the #devBUG Issue Tracker under the Commissions project.

Beta Testers, we've just launched a new Commissions widget for Profile Pages that lets you offer commissions directly from your page!
