Steve Jobs - Community Contest & Tribute:icontechgnotic:Steve Jobs - Community Contest & Tribute3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A number of media outlets are closely monitoring the artistic response by our community to the death of Steve Jobs.
For me, Steve Jobs is an icon. The John Lennon of our time. And while his wife and children, as well as Apple and Pixar, are the landmarks of his life, Steve Jobs encapsulates the core values that have inspired a generation, separate from the images put forth by his companies.
It is his iconography that we as a community should come together and try our hands at capturing. No small feat, but it is precisely what I'd like to see us do. The iconography of Steve Jobs himself. Apple and Pixar and those types of images aside, Steve Jobs transcends these accomplishments through the meaning of his life's work, his vision, and the inspiration that he will continue to be to us all.
Iconography is the branch of art history which studies the identification, description, and the int

So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognised in the crowd.
Today, we present to you the following deviants who have all been awarded Seniority as part of our 11th birthday celebrations. They have all been nominated

Addicted: It's fairly easy to become a dAmn addict once you've found the right kind of chatroom.
Autocomplete: If you want to direct your message to one person, type the first few letters of their username and hit the tab key to complete the users name.
Backslash: Its your best friend, helps you join rooms, search for friends, ban a troll and much more.
Ban: There are two types of ban to define here, a channel ban and a dAmn ban. A channel ban prevents a user from being able to join and message within the chatroom. A dAmn ban prevents a user from accessing the chat network at all (a banned user will experience a 'not privileged' error upon trying to join a chatroom)

1) First off RetroZombie, can you tell us a little bit about yourself!
Well, it's hard to know where to start, without writing my whole life's story! On dA, I've tried to take advantage of the wide range of art that can be presented here to explore all of my creative outlets. So you'll find visual art of many varieties alongside prose and poetry. I've always had a desire, lying just under the surface, to pursue a career in something creative--usually I envision myself knocking out a great novel, buying a pipe and smoking jacket (no tobacco, though ) and living out my years as an eccentric writer of fiction.
