Before using dAmn in general you are expected to know your basic way around the Chat Network Policies and Proper Etiquette of deviantART. Violating the rules listed there will cause big problems for you as any insult to these rules are taken seriously.
Don't spam. Don't flood. Don't use a lot of emotes or really big ones. Don't advertise (without asking a Roomie). Don't overuse bold or italics, and don't overruse the CAPS. Don't leave massive away messages. Don't swear a lot. A little bit is fine.
#WriteRoom is an English chatroom only. We know that a lot of people speak different languages, but we don't. Speaking in a language that almost nobody understands will not contribute to a discussion and the mods can't moderate it. Greetings etc. in other langua

Party PoopersRussian politicians really like trying to associate cultural elements that they personally don’t like with things that are universally frowned upon, in the hope that the latter poisons the former in the public's view.Party Poopers1 month ago in Personal More Like This
During the lead up to the Winter Olympics in February, for example, while large gentlemen with flails were beating the sh*t out of small, female protesters, Putin seemed to make a great effort to always mention homosexuals and paedophiles in the same sentence, as though the two were somehow linked.
I’m not suggesting that politicians elsewhere in the world don’t pull the same trick in order to rally a hysterical mob in their favour, but the Russians do it with all the subtlety of a brick.
In what I’m assuming is less an effort to protect the fragile psyche of Russia’s youth and more an attempt to thwart another dastardly Western concept (namely f

World War 3 may just be months away, with much of the middle east currently being blown apart by missiles and the locals setting their neighbours on fire, but the real news is that the Twinkie, the USA's primary contribution to world cuisine, could cease to be.
"You eat those?" I hear people ask. Hell no. Never eaten one in my life. There's something about their unnatural, chemical-yellow colour and that they have a half-life rather than a use-by date that just sets off one too many alarm-bells.
In fact, I'm pretty sure that if you read the print on the pack, you'll find asbestos to be a key ingredient.
Even John McClane can't keep one down, and he took out a building full of terrorists with nothing but his bare feet and a Santa hat.
Which leads to my point: Without the Twinkie, there are SO many lines from SO many classic movies that future generations just a

Tolkien was, undeniably, a genius, but, for the love of creativity and dynamism; read another f**king book, people.
There's a world of culture, history and myth out there to seek inspiration from! Fantasy should be an exciting, twisted reflection of the world around us, not an endless stream of pirated Lord of the Rings DVDs.

Paranoia and a sense of impending doom.
The "party game" I just picked up should do the trick.
Each player gets a Nerf gun, the name of a target and the location in the house where they have to shoot them at some point over the course of the evening.
Nothing says "Christmas" like an assassination contract.

Ever since "Lorcraft" cropped up in Sequential Art, I've been working on an RPG system for an actual, pen-and-paper Lorcraft game and have a few really good ideas that should (in theory) work.
It's a ways off yet, though. It's the kind of thing that'll need some serious playtesting, and I have a zillion other projects to conclude first (LITTLEVICTORYLITTLEVICTORYLITTLEVICTORY!)

I've thought long and hard and have decided to change it toooooo.......
That's right; i'm one of the few artists here on DA that seems content with my name. That; and I think changing a "brand" simply because you can, after you've spent time and energy building up an audience is f**king stupid.
I've been here for years. I've operated on the internet under "jollyjack" for longer. If I changed that now it would be monumentally confusing to people that follow my work, which, in turn, would have an effect on revenue.
There are a ton of artists here whose work I keenly follow, and I think they're kinda shooting themselves in the foot by doing this.
Kinda reminds be of those little label-making things everyone's been given on at least one Christmas as a kid: you unwrap it, you find out what it does and you spend the rest of the day punching out new tags for everything. Even if they'

Really? I mean; really?
The US National Ocean Service had to make a statement that Mermaids do not in fact exist, after they were bombarded by enquiries regarding them in the wake of a programme aired by the Discovery Channel.
"Mermaids: The Body Found" was a work of fiction but was mistaken by a number of people to be a documentary.
I'm guessing they're the same people for whom warnings are printed on Harry Potter broomsticks, reading "Caution: Does not actually fly".......

How to interview a politician.A tiny snippet from Jeremy Paxman's interview with Silvio Berlusconi.How to interview a politician.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some might not know who Berlusconi is: he's a media tycoon, 3 time Prime Minister of Italy and is generally regarded as the face of political vice and corruption in Europe.
Many won't know who Paxman is: he's the brick that the BBC throw at people like Berlusconi. His questions being so blunt that it's nigh on impossible to wriggle out of answering them without looking more of a prat than you did at the start.
I'm pretty sure that Paxman also hates that fact that you, whoever you are, share the same planet as him:

Strange and exotic foods.The USA is the loudest nation on Earth. Its culture is presented to the rest of the planet in all forms of media, and has been for the decades that I've been parked in front of the TV. Kids in remote corners of the world grow up watching Sesame Street. I did, and as a result say "Zee" instead of "Zed", which pissed off my English teacher something fierce.Strange and exotic foods.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those that take my jibes, barbs and sarcasm too seriously: I have no problem with that kind of cultural permeation. Far from it. I find it rather fascinating.
It has however led to a few "WTF?" moments. Questions as to what those crazy Yanks are talking about, as there is nothing comparable elsewhere. They're never in regards to anything major. Just little cultural quirks that have never escaped beyond the borders and, as such, are seen by outsiders as a total f**king mystery.
Things like "S'mores".
"S'more" is a word I've heard and read since the 80s.

Last chicken in Sainsbury's“Dirty Bird”, a fried chicken vendor in Wales, has been forced to defend its choice in logo:Last chicken in Sainsbury's3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some rather prudish individuals have complained that it looks a mite dubious, while the owner of Dirty Bird has insisted that people are seeing what they want to see, and not what was intended.
It is claimed that the logo is simply the lower case initials of the company placed back to back in order to form the neck and wings of a cockerel.
Seeing one of Dirty Bird’s recent promotional images, however; one might be given cause to doubt their professed innocence.
And people ask why I like living on this spiteful little island

Teenage Alien Ninja TurtlesI've just learned that filmmaker Michael Bay (aka - Uwe-Boll-With-A-Budget) has turned his withering gaze upon the Heroes in a Half-Shell, and has set about mutilating the franchise by informing us that their origin will change in his upcoming (oh god; if I have to refer to another film as this I may start weeping blood) reboot.Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Y'know in the Disney animation Bolt where the idiot pigeons give a one-word pitch at how to "improve" the series that the titular doggie has absconded from? It's a dig at crappy writers that have no idea how to come up with an original idea and so just shoehorn in absurd new story elements to an existing tale.
Well; that's basically what Mr Bay has said:
Nope. They're not mutants anymore. They're aliens.
After Transformers: This should be buried on the dark side of the Moon (or whatever it was called), I vowed never to piss away my money or, more importantly; my time, watching any future film Bay is connected with.

Please don't, lol. Read it first. The opinions in this rant are my own and you don't have to agree. If you don't, that's fine. If you do, thank you! Remember: respect is key.
We hear all the time about how religious people, mainly Christians, can really go crazy when it comes to forcing their beliefs on people and being jerks to whoever doesn't believe in the same things they believe in. And I, as a Christian, agree with that 100%. I've met some of the most hateful Christians who honestly contradict everything they claim to stand for and make humongous hypocrites out of themselves. It's actually really hilarious. But what about the atheists who get so offended and angry when someone mentions the word "God" or says anything about their religion?
Why is it worthy of such hate? If I'm respectful to you and don't try to force my beliefs and opini
The My Little Pony FandomI honestly have no idea what to rant about anymore. I've been sucked dry of ideas that I believe people will be interested in and like to read. I usually wouldn't want to touch on this topic, at least not the topic itself instead of being mentioned in the many rants I've written about fandoms in general. But like I said, I'm bored, unmotivated, and this is just what you're getting from me today. Plus, it does seem to be a topic that either makes people really happy or pisses them off.

Ah, Social Justice Warriors. SJWs, hypocritical assholes, the cancer of the internet. Whatever you choose to refer to them as, we all know they're the ones who claim to be all for a certain thing, or are trying waaaay too hard to stand up for what they believe in when all they're really doing is being cruel to others and probably don't have a clue about the cause they're 'fighting' for nor care about it when the shit hits the fan.
Of course, there's nothing wrong with social justice. Not at all. We need someone to keep the peace, but then again, we're always going to have idiots and less-than-civil people who are going to cause trouble. To be honest, I didn't know what a SJW was until now. I saw how much people hated them and figured it may be a decent topic to rant about, so I looked it up. It's pretty much what I suspected but never cared ab
