Site Update: Staff Retreat, .Art, deviantMEETsIn this week's Site Update, we don't have any publicly visible changes, as our Devious Technology (dT), Product, and Product Marketing teams are all still at a staff retreat!Site Update: Staff Retreat, .Art, deviantMEETs3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
At the beginning of the week, the dT team worked on improving our internal development tools to increase efficiency. Then, on Wednesday, we let any staff members at the retreat pitch fun and exciting ideas for deviantART features that could be built in two days. After each feature idea was pitched, everyone from dT chose which projects they'd like to work on. Throughout the year, engineers primarily work on projects that are assigned to them, so sometimes it's important to turn the tables and let them choose projects in which they're most passionate and excited about.
The purpose of these two-day "hackathons" is to build and demonstrate a proofs of con

Hello everyone! It's that time of year when the air becomes colder and snowflakes begin to fall from the heavens, the landscape becomes covered by a blanket of white.. (depending on where you are in the world that is. :'D ) So, do you know what that calls for?! That's right an OC Winter/Yule/Christmas Contest! (I decided to launch the contest eight days ahead of schedule since the positive results on my recent polls asked for them.)
Michael Myers fanfiction RP part 1This is an rp I did a long time ago and I was planning on turning it into a fanfiction but I was too lazy to do it. So while reading you will notice how the first part is well written and edited.

A steady breeze flowed throughout the quiet town of Haddonfield, Illinois. It was a cool fall night, just like any other fall night in Haddonfield. Though this night there was something different... something evil..
Her heart was beating so fast it might burst out of her chest, her feet flew through the air as she raced to her house in a mad dash. Everything was going by in a blur around Veronica Strode as she raced on, her feet propelling her forwards like a torpedo.
The night was dark and eerie. The silence was even more unnerving.
Her shoes thudded loudly on the steps as she zoomed up to the front door.Jerking it open frantically she rushed inside and slammed it shut.Panting, she slumped against the wooden frame
''Bahrainham''?Unsurprisingly, after the murder of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists last week: media hysteria is higher than normal, with news networks reporting on virtually nothing but counter terrorism plans.''Bahrainham''?7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Joke news network Fox was clearly so caught up in it all that they went into full reality meltdown, claiming that parts of Britain had become no-go areas for non-Muslims, and that “Muslim Religious Police” were patrolling parts of London, attacking anyone who did not conform to Islamic law.
Birmingham, they said, was a city populated purely by Muslims, and people not of that faith just didn’t go there…..which was news to me. I live just outside it, I venture in on a weekly basis and, as far as I am aware, I am not a Muslim.
The, clearly bat-sh*t, journalist that made these insane accusations was immediately pointed to and laughed at by, well, everybody, and went on to apologise for his “terrible error”.

We've found a hostWe're going to use longtail to host the episodes on our site. Longtail is the same web-host that derby.tv uses - it's a nice player that works across all platforms - smartphones and tablets included. So huzzah!We've found a host3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We'll be getting the episodes up and nicely embedded on our website over the weekend and we'll upload redirects on youtube soon.
For more information, read Greg's tumblr post: http://fimflamfilosophy.tumblr.com/post/41474238862/light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel
Ok, as Greg pointed out below, I technically got the host wrong. WE are our host. The files are uploaded and streamed directly from our website. The Longtail player is simply the codec wee use to stream the content. So ya! That means WE control the content and can't have the videos taken down on a whim.

First off, I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who made it out to my Artist Alley table at WonderCon in Southern California this past weekend. This was the first convention I'd been to in a long time where I was at my booth all by myself, so having people stop even just to say hello made the weekend amazing. I've only got two more conventions scheduled for this year, so if you're in the area, come say hello? I'll be in the Artist Alley at:
FanimeCon in San Jose, CA : May 25-28, 2012
Anime Expo in Los Angeles, CA : June 29-July 2, 2012
Also, I've said a few times that I've been working on a super exciting secret project, but it's finally almost ready to present to you guys. It's going to be something especially time sensitive, so check back here within the next two weeks to see what I've got planned. <3
Lastly, I updated the shop at ponandzi.com with a new limited edition print a few weeks ago, and more than half are already gone! I realized that I'd only updated

There's a simple explanation:
You're a toymaker's creation
Trapped inside a crystal ball...
And whichever way he tilts it
Know that we must be resilient
We won't let them break our spirits
As we sing this silly song
When I was a little filly,
a galloping blaze overtook my city
So they shipped me off to the orphanage.
Said, "ditch those roots if you wanna fit in"
So I dug one thousand holes and cut a rug with orphan foals
Memories are blurred, and their faces are obscured,
but I still, know the words to this song
When you've bungled all your bangles
And your loved ones have been mangled...
Listen to the jingle jangle
Of my gypsy tambourine!
'Cause these chords are hypnotizing
And the whole world's harmonizing
So please children stop your crying
And just sing along with me!
When you're rife with devastation
There's a simple explanation:
You're a toymaker's creation
Trapped inside a crystal ball...
And whichever way he tilts it
Joss Whedon's Top Ten Writing Tips!I recently made a post and shared an article I found where Joss Whedon shared his top ten writing tips. The first five are here and the full list is on our blog! Great stuff!!!Joss Whedon's Top Ten Writing Tips!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Joss Whedon is most famous for creating Buffy the Vampire Slayer, its spin-off Angel and the short-lived but much-loved Firefly series. But the writer and director has also worked unseen as a script doctor on movies ranging from Speed to Toy Story. Here, he shares his tips on the art of screenwriting.
1. FINISH IT
Actually finishing it is what I’m gonna put in as step one. You may laugh at this, but it’s true. I have so many friends who have written two-thirds of a screenplay, and then re-written it for about three years. Fin
Blip is a no-goAlright, Greg heard back from blip. Their response is on our website: http://www.dawnsomewhere.com/2013/01/24/the-blip-verdict/Blip is a no-go3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Essentially, they said they wont be giving our account back. For those who submitted requests on our behalf, thank y'all for your support, but complaints don't change these policies unfortunately. While our stuff legally falls under 'fair use' laws, Blip has their own interests to look after and they don't have the time to verify everything. Essentially we're guilty until proven innocent, and the burden of proof is on us, the accused, not the accuser. That's just the internet landscape we live in nowadays.
That said, we will certainly find another method of hosting the mentally advanced series on our site; Y'all need not worry.

SPECIAL CONTEST!I realized that we haven't had a contest in a while, and I apologize for that.SPECIAL CONTEST!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, we all know we support either character, not just the couple itself. We've brought together RS fans AND MLP fans in hopes that they can consider the other.
I hopes of doing something special for this summer, I've decided that the best way to improve things (and hopefully not lose more members) is a fanfic/poem contest!
That's right! Special tribute to those who really aren't much for making art and are much for writing!
1. Can be either MordeTwi, just Mordecai, just Twilight, or simply just crossover.
2. Submission limit: 2 (chapters, perhaps?)
3. Can be either a fanfic OR a POEM
4. Feel free to include other characters, maybe even from other shows.
5. Mature IS welcome. Yeah, that's right. MATURE .

ANNOUNCEMENTS REGARDING CERTAIN CHANGE
Go home, internet. You're drunk.Over the past 24 hours I've had nearly as many chain comments posted to my account. They're all the same, some vague Ringu-inspired nonsense about dying if you read the message and if you post it to ten accounts you'll go on a really awesome date. Seriously, it's like the worst urban legend ever. It's like if you said Candyman in the mirror three times and he showed up to give you a winning lottery ticket and a back rub.Go home, internet. You're drunk.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The point is, please do not post this on my pictures or profile. I'll just mark it as spam. This isn't 1997, all the chain mail threats and legend are disproved by now. Nobody has died because they didn't forward the chain, and nobody is getting kissed by their super-secret crush because they did.
Also, apparently this silly picture I posted on my Tumblr last week is a meme now. I'm very sorry.

The Butterflies- A short storyThe ButterfliesThe Butterflies- A short story1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
The young albino sighed with irritation. Her teacher thought she was lying about her report. The red butterfly told her so. Her teacher thought that she had plagiarized someone else’s work. It was too good, the teacher was thinking. It’s too emotional for someone her age to write. It angered Emily. Her story had been about her late younger sister, Lily. In a way, it had been one of Emily’s attempts to tell the world of her pain; to get the world to understand. And her teacher dared to challenge her story as plagiarized. She would show her.
“Calm down, Emily,” whispered the blue butterfly. “She doesn’t understand…how could she? She isn’t like you. No one is.” She heard the other students in her classroom whispering about her, making fun of her. They thought she was no good, a weirdo; one that knew too much. But who could

Autism's FriendIn Boston Massachusetts, an orphanage held many of the children who lost their parents when they were very young. On specific child who lived there was very different than the others. She had Apsergers, a specific type of Autism, and the people who took care of her didn't know much about her condition. They always thought she was stubborn and aggressive, but her disorder was just making her stressed out. She would have many stims that made her look like she had spasms, but were expected with her disorder. She would always cry outside by a tree with her stuffed owl she would never get rid of. Her condition made her obsessed with owls, and the people thought she was sick and planned to send her to an institution if she didn't 'improve'. One cloudy, brisk day, she sat by the tree and clutched her owl.Autism's Friend2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
