Journals: The Tweaks We ALL WantWell, that didn't entirely go as planned.Journals: The Tweaks We ALL Want3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
There are a few issues with the Journal implementation, but there aren't any issues we can't easily fix. And we got so much great feedback, that we now clearly understand some things we didn't before. The best part is, we're going to get the best of both worlds for Journals. All of the benefits of the deviation system for Journals, with all of the resolutions that were vocalized as concerns.
Monday of next week, we're going to release the following changes so that everyone can SMILE!
When you go to publish a Journal, you'll be able to Submit your Journal to your Profile just as you did before the changes. The Journal will go out to your +Watch list, display on your Journal tab and on your Profile Page (if applicable.) There wouldn't be a +Favorite button unless you Submit to The deviantART Journal.
That's right! You'll also be able to publish to

Due to halloween some pretty key folks are trick or treating with their kids and stuff this evening so I couldn't publish a really terrific resolution to the Journal issues we've been having until tomorrow. Family comes first folks!
I can say the following with confidence: Everything everyone wants, with the added benefits that come with the deviations platform will be released very soon.
In the meantime, enjoy the really crazy journals showing up in the footer.
Oh, btw, because of the new Journal portal we learned we were having a bit of a spam issue, with a few bots posting to the network mostly to spike their google pagerank. Which is silly because we've set the pages to be ignored by the google spiders... so what these spammers are doing is all for nothing. But we'll root them out within a couple of days as well and ultimately really clean deviantART up.
For the record.... the community is using Journals at a much higher r

Thanksgiving Note Project 2011... begins now!Thanksgiving Note Project 20113 years ago in Personal More Like This
For the past three years, "some guy" by the username of wreckling has organised the Thanksgiving Note Project. It has steadily gained more participation as the years go along, and last year there were over 200 participants.
What is this?
It's simple! It's a project organised on the occasion of Thanksgiving. Is there anything you feel thankful for? All you have to do is send me a note and tell me what you are thankful for. It can be a single word, a line, a paragraph... you can be thankful about a small thing or a big thing... all of it counts. Anybody can participate. You don't have to be in the States and you don't have to celebrate Thanksgiving in your country.
What should my note look like?
Here's an example of what your note should look like.

Pimping my friend, Chu-3 first English commercial game, Cafe 0 - The Drowned Mermaid. I also helped out co-writing it (by co-writing, I only helped rewriting the script since English is her third language, the game idea and story are solely hers.) It's pretty cool supernatural mystery visual novel. If you have time, please give it a try and support her first release, so she can make more cool games~ Thank you~ ^^

Lucifer - The Fallen by *RainerKalwitz
Marble, Granite, Bronze, Silver, Gold!
Early statuary depicted one’s god’s, and since the medium is
as much the message as the visual message itself – the medium had
to proclaim: This god is as forever lasting as this stone that His
rendering is hewn out of! But all that is solid eventually melts
away into the air, even the most powerful ancient gods and kings –
As the poet Shelley so poignantly noted in Ozymandias.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter'd visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp’d on these lifeless things,
The hand that mock’d them and the

We collected a list of comments from the release article and some journals and here they are, with my responses for all to see.
First, part of being in a community is being understanding. deviantART Staff faces this daily as we understand member concerns and try our best to serve you.
In situations like the one we face right now with Journals, I ask you to be understanding with us as we battle with difficult circumstances balancing the needs of millions of members.

I will have to completely reorganise my breakfast schedule because of some overzealous admin. Usually I wake up, prepare nomnoms, settle in front of the computer and search for some morning drama. butthurtbrigade was one of my favourite places to acquire my morning dose of concentrated baawws. Now when it is gone I will be forced to actively search for the dramas elsewhere and I don't like that.

Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update)Our view at deviantART regarding SOPA is that it's probably a bad idea. There should be better ways to deal with mass infringement on the Internet than this. This bill in our view can be seen as a threat to the open Internet itself and this is very hard to digest or support.Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update)3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

Hey y'all, it's that time of year again to get into the holiday spirit. It's a great time for gift-giving and showing that you care for one another. Unfortunately, there are quite a few people this holiday spirit who do not have enough to be able to send out many gifts. Because of that, this year we want to help as many deviants as possible.
winehaus and TimberClipse are working together this year to raise AT LEAST 15,000 for other deviants. We need YOUR help!
We want to give as many deviants gifts for them to further grow as devious artists! So will you help us?
If you can donate even just a few points, we will be so greatful! Even if you cannot donate if you can promote this on your pages, groups, twitters, facebooks, ANYWHERE we would love that!
Why should you donate? Well, first of all, many people would be h

Let's say that you're rattling along one of your paintings, and a cursory glance at the keyboard arrangement shows that a lot of common shortcut keys are cluttered right next to eachother. Ctrl+S will save the file. Ctrl+A selects the whole image. Ctrl+E merges layers. Ctrl+D clears the current selection. Those are all actions that are nice and tidy right next to eachother on the keyboard.

monochrome no kiss english lyrics by y chang(i dont own this song or lyrics)monochrome no kiss english lyrics by y chang2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I close my eyes, the touch of your fingers
Through monochrome the memory lingers
into your hands i'm resting the pain inside of me
You and me
A dream of blind destiny
And it's into your arms I'm melting
And it's the first time I've ever felt like this
You are the hand that's dealt me
The tempter sealing my fate
With a kiss
And in a flash, the stars align
I search beyond the words, wanting a sign
But lost inside your eyes
Lies become clearer to see
They tell a different story
So take the reins and don't let go
I want this pain to scar deep, for I know all our past receives healing,with memories concealing
we cry to the light of the moon
this night's become a wonderful haven and in my it's what Ive craven
addicted to this sea, Ive even lost the need to breathe
and its out of my life your fading and its the warmth of your arms i still desire
stuck all alone I'm praying to never share my one kiss with a liar
and in the dark I'm left alone
