Starting with dA CSSBack when CSS was allowed for journals for the first time there had been only a few deviants like ClaireJones, Lilyas or kuschelirmel-stock who provided free skins for everyone. Through the time more and more people enjoyed working on CSS skins and we also got the chance to skin our galleries.Starting with dA CSS3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
These days, and thanks to the great resources about journal and gallery CSS that have been created, it is possible for nearly everyone to code their own skins and/or to share them with others. Still there are many people who struggle with some basic things, which is why we want to focus on some of them here.
Where can you use CSS/HTML
On deviantART you can only use HTML and CSS on your journals, group blogs, your custom gallery folders, as well as your groups' galleries.
When you customize your profile widgets you can't add CSS or HTML like you can for journals/galleries. All you can do is using existing dA code that can be re-us
Using bookmarklets for chromeAs requested by fatezo0m and geoogle, this is a journal for those that are interested in how to view any web/webapp in explorer frame without chrome UX. You can expand on this with bookmarklets, and you can read about those hereUsing bookmarklets for chrome1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It couldn't be any more simple really.. Once you are at the destination (web adress that is), hit these buttons, and set the shortcuts where you want them.
SETTINGS>TOOLS>CREATE APPLICATION SHORTCUTSWhen you open up the shortcut, it won't open adress in a chrome, but in explorer frame only. Chrome is still running! It's just hidden in the background. That also means that any plugins and add-ons you have will get activated aswell. if you expand on it, you can also load up custom css, javacsript etc. to customize the whole web

:iconohnoesplz:The new possibility on to start a donation pool is almost a dumb feature.More amd more people send notes or beg on the artist's pages for points.Mostly these are people you don't know, who never faved or commented anything you've made.
1 point is one cent. Will they really sell their pride for 1 cent? Just wondering.
The next step is to sell their souls. There are some guys on DA who sell their faves, features and comments for points.For 200 points, they fave your complete gallery, give you a feature and watch you.Is this the way should work? I don't think so.Can someone really be glad about faves he bought?
DA is a commercial page, and that's okay.But it shouldn't have so much "commercial" users.
I don't mean the users who start a donation pool to upgrade their groups.This is something that
How to (sort of) get Truetransparency on Win7A lot of people ask me how to make TrueTransparency play nice with Windows 7.How to (sort of) get Truetransparency on Win75 years ago in Personal More Like This
The short answer is: You can... well sort of.
Here are the general problems (I'm going to assume people with Win7 are on the 64-bit version, or Win7 x64).
1) Explorer windows are not skinned (or any 64-bit programs for that matter).
2) Explorer windows skin, but the toolbar is completely transparent.
First, you will need both TrueTransparency x86 and x64.
For your convenience, here is a zip with both (x64 can be hard to find): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7100381/TrueTransparency.zip
To skin all windows, you will need to run both the TrueTransparency.exe in the TrueTransparency x64 AND TrueTransparency x86 folders.
At this point, all windows should be skinned (with the exclusion of "special" windows like Google chrome, Command Prompt, GIMP/Photoshop, Task Manager, etc.
You may notice that the explorer toolbar is completely transparent. There are two workarounds for this.
One involves removing the too
Christmas Gift!!!Hi all!Christmas Gift!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As previously announced, a brand new version of AwOken color is available! I added more than 100 new colored icons, so I think you will be pleased by the new additions!
Moreover, I packed them up also for AwOkenDark and AwOkenWhite iconsets, in order to get ready for the upcoming release! As you can see, the colored icons are the same as the default iconset, but the non-colored ones change according to the either dark or white colorization.
Here are the links:
Simply extract them, and place them in your ~/.icons directory.
If you feel brave, you can also try the customization script (in order to change forlders and even colorize the icons with whatever color you want).
Simply type this in your terminal window (after having done the previous step, i.e. moving the downloaded folders in your ~/.icons

INTERVIEW WITH NOVOO:iconnovoo:INTERVIEW WITH NOVOO4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Where did you get your nickname novoo from?
After using my full name for almost 2 years as my username, it was time to get something new on deviantart and customize.org. novo is the portuguese word for "new", but it was already taken. So I tried "novoo" and voilá.. a new nickname was born
How did you get started in customization, was it difficult at first?
I think it was back in 2004. Screenshots with overloaded Samurize configs were the hit on internet forums. So I played around with it, did some modifications on Winamp Skins, changed a few icons, posted my screenshots on customize.org... that's it
Where did you find your inspiration from?
Mostly through music, nature and other designer's work.
I notice you design outside of custo, can you share your process. (Tools,

a protester is throwing back a tear gas grenade at the front line barricade of yesterday's clashes in gümüşsuyu. the amount of gas you're exposed to while doing this is very dangerous, even with a gas mask.
in the face of what happens every day, the word protest appears euphemistic. what you are seeing here is not a demonstration but a crowd defending taksim, so that people can demonstrate and 'occupy' there. yesterday saw a lot of police provocation in order to lure protesters out of the greater taksim area and arrest them, but some strong voices were able to hold back most of the less strategically minded who wanted to throw stones at the water cannons waiting beyond the barricades (a rather futile excercise).

Vertically Scrolling TextScrolling Text w/TransformationMatrixVertically Scrolling Text7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Removed dependence on third party Scroller.dll plug-in
Requires Rainmeter 3.0 or newer rainmeter.net/cms/
Overview: Example skins demonstrating vertically scrolling text & using TransformationMatrix on string meters.
Premise: Create a skin that will scroll the text vertically in either direction. Then transform the scrolling text to produce "dimensional" effects.
Two skins are offered along with this description; ScrollText2Shrink.ini and ScrollText2CenterZoom.ini
ScrollText2Shrink shrinks the text as it progresses up the skin and back down.
ScrollText2CenterZoom maximizes the size near the vertical center.

Since January I've been working as a product ambassador (promotional modelling) for Nissan at all the Auto Shows around Canada (No I'm not in a bikini in front of the GT-R, I'm actually quite knowledgeable about each and every vehicle from Nissan).

One show left to do and that is Edmonton from the 18th to the 21st of April. So if you are from the area come pass by and say Hi!

barricades are the only way to keep the water cannon trucks at bay and protesters use anything they can find to build them.
in the night of june 02/03, a large crowd of protesters managed to put an end to being chased back from beşiktaş in front of inönü stadium / dolmabahçe. a hijacked crane turned the tables for a little while, pushing water cannon trucks and policemen back up dolmabahçe boulevard. the night ended by the police hitting back with full force from several sides, dispersing the protesters but unable to further penetrate the taksim area.
