Winter Wonderland Challenge Reminder!Hello everyone!Winter Wonderland Challenge Reminder!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've come out of hiding to make this announcement.
Where are your "Winter Wonderland" challenge entries? Did you know there's a little less then two weeks left? And did you forget that there's a large set of prizes and points for the winners of each level this time?
Well, now you do! Think of it as a mini-contest, because prizes are more than the usual that you would get when you win a challenge.
The entries are due on December 30th. Here are few entries in no particular order or level.
Please remember that we are not making Christmas cards. I've had to decline a couple of beautiful images that were not on the theme of a Winter wonderland because they were meant specifically for Christmas. I rather accept your entry, so please be sure your deviation is on the correct theme.
That's all! Time for me to go back into hiding.
Happy Holidays everyone!

Update, final circle, and due datesUpdateUpdate, final circle, and due dates6 months ago in Contests More Like This
Just letting you all know that Circle 7 will be the final circle. Things are getting dragged out too far for many reasons, plus I cannot find enough people to post clues for circles 8 and 9. I appreciate those of you who were willing to post 2 clues, but I think that would be confusing for those individuals who just recently started playing. They'd have to keep track of which clue was which.
I will post 7 as soon as I hear back from the people who are hiding clues that they are ready to go.
I want to thank everyone who participated. You all are amazing!!
Due dates for passwords
Your passwords will be due at or before 11:59 pm PST (dA time) on Friday, November 16th. You should send them via note to the group #Halloween-HQ. Please be sure they are in order of the Circles. (If you went out of order, please order them in the order they SHOULD be.)
I think that's it. Questions? Comments?
ResoucesDue to their small size it is common for emotes to be included in art pieces such as pixel scenes and stamps. These deviations can require other pixel related resources that are relevant to the emote community but not directly emote related. To help deviants locate these useful resources a list has been compiled on this account and split into different categories for easy navigation.Resouces1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Giveaways are easy to participate in because they do not require the creation of art or literature in order to enter. They provide chances to win points, premium memberships, free art, and more! Pay attention to the rules in each of these journals--some require you to comment, repost, or watch in order to qualify. Also, be sure to pay attention to the TIME ZONES noted in the journals. If the deviant listed the raffle draw date but not a hard deadline for submission, I'm listing the deadline date as one day before the raffle. Also, if the deadline is unlisted, then it's best if you enter immediately to make sure you've got a chance to win.
If you want more giveaway details, Arlesienne :iconarlesienne: has been keeping tabs on them and posting journals. Watch her for constant updates on giveaways, contests, and opportunities! You can start here http://fav.me/d5qdqo6 and here http://fav.me/d5pfzky.

Tips on Etiquette + Popularity (DOs vs. DON'Ts)Humans are greedy and want to be noticed, preferably by many others. Here on dART, it's the same old thing. People want to be recognized, and there's nothing wrong with that itself. The problem is, people are also very lazy and don't have much patience. So, naturally, people try find the easiest and fastest way to get what they want - popularity, in this case. And believe me, there are a lot of ways to do this; trolling, spamming, stealing, and otherwise cheating will do the trick quickly. But, no, it doesn't even have to be illegal activities; if you are persistent and pushy enough, others will eventually notice you. But the 'popularity' you get out from this kind of behaviour is, frankly, not admirable in the long run. It will wear you and everyone else out, and your reputation will most likely be shit. "Any publicity is good publicity" - no, it is not. That's like saying any passing grade is the same; but I assure you, grades and how you achieved them do matter, especially when youTips on Etiquette + Popularity (DOs vs. DON'Ts)6 months ago in Personal More Like This

FairnessFairness - a word that has been misused and misplaced on many different occasions.Fairness1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It makes me mad to think that people consider themselves "fair" and "unbiased" in certain areas of life even though they are not.
Being "fair" means being just, objective and unprejudiced.
It is a rare trait, something very uncommon and a lot of people just cannot be fair.
That is a fact. There will always be preferences in certain things, you cannot compare your Fairness to someone else's.
People are too different in that aspect.
So here is a small description to the word:
Free from favoritism, self-interest, or preference in judgment.
It sounds so simple when you think about it, yet it is so hard to follow.
Being fair also means speaking the truth and a lot of people cannot take the truth.
A lot of us would rather stand behind the door, then in front of it.
A good example for this situation are the Thr
The contest results! Yay!First I would like to thank everyone that entered.

You are all awesome people and I would love to hug each one of you!The contest results! Yay!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
The whole idea behind this contest was to have fun with Ocs, create links. The fact that people could enter on behalf of others made this even bigger, greater, and better as people gave their best not only for them, but to help others. Really, can you feel the love? I do! (Yes, I may sound somehow Heartshriney here but that isn't my fault, ) I am amazed everytime i can feel the community spirit there is on dA sometimes.
Those entries were all differents, and each one showed how much care you put in this. It made it terribly hard to choose, even with my panel of judges/ friends helping me. There have been some serious tussle , believe me!
But since I'm quite sure you are all now dancing on the spot with eagerness, I wo
