UPDATE: Conifer Citizen ContestTHE CONTEST HAS BEEN EXTENDEDUPDATE: Conifer Citizen Contest3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So ever since I've uploaded the Conifer Person species info sheet and some prior to its uploading, people have wanted to make their own Conifer People. The first thing that came to mind was Contest Time~! So here we go~ The Conifer Citizen Contest! So now let's get started.
First off you all must know what a Conifer is. The conifers, division Pinophyta, also known as division Coniferophyta or Coniferae, are one of 13 or 14 division level taxa within the Kingdom Plantae. Pinophytes are gymnosperms. They are cone-bearing seed plants with vascular tissue; all extant conifers are woody plants, the great majority being trees with just a few being shrubs. Typical examples of conifers include cedars, Douglas-firs, cypresses, firs, junipers, kauri, larches, pines, hemlocks, redwoods, spruces, and yews. The division contains approximately eight families, 68 genera, and 630 living species. Although the total number of species is relatively sm

Your Guide to Excuses for Stealing ArtAnd here you have a little guide to most of the excuses to which innocent little fans like to use when they take a picture made by someone else. They post it as their own, or worse, butcher it with super professional edits and watermarks.Your Guide to Excuses for Stealing Art9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This applies to:
When your art is reposted in the same website/any website you have it posted as well;
When your art is posted in any website you have not posted on;
When people alter/watermark/trace your works
So here is the list! I will add anything that any of you have gone through, that isn't on the listing
I found it on the internet (website unknown);I found it on Google/DeviantArt/Pinterest/etc;(After being told Google gives sources and names) I didn't find it on Google, but somewhere else I don't remember;Because I found it, it's mine;I watermark pictures that I find;I worked hard on this edit!;My life is hard/ I'm hetero/homosexual / but I have this disease, so I don't know what I'm doing / any other excuse;*Ignores

Customize Your Literature ThumbnailsThis journal will break down the components of the various kind of Literature (and Journal) thumbnails now available, as well as discuss how to customize them in a journal CSS. I believe there's some overlap with gallery CSS, but these tips are specifically for the way things look in journals.Customize Your Literature Thumbnails2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Anyway, this isn't a basic tutorial on coding but you can find great resources in groups like eCSSited.
If it's a PDF or something visual and has a PNG/JPG preview, it behaves the same as normal thumbnails, so it doesn't bear mentioning here.
The different types of thumbnails
is the standard one. Anything that is either written in Sta.sh Writer or with the 'Enter Text' option in the Submit dialog will have this. Some include a preview image within the thumbnail itself, but I won't be discussing that here.

Deviation sets proposalSince I heard many positive comments about this proposal, I'm going to try to make it known to everyone:Deviation sets proposal3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have a great new feature that would be loved by the people who submit literature, comics, movie episodes and photo sets:
- The submitter will be able to group and order the submission set, for easy management
- There will be a next/previous button (and if someone wants it a first button) for easy navigation between the parts/chapters/episodes of the set
- Everyone will be able to favorite/watch a set. There will be an overview of the watched sets on the my.deviantart.com page, which will show all deviations in the set and shows the ones you've already seen/read greyed out.
- It will be easier the submitter to manage the deviations
- This will give the opportunity to give a name to the set (name of the story) and also a name to the parts of the set (name of the chapter), without interference.
- It will make it easier for st

November NaNoEmo 2013Together with Mirz123, I am proud to present the 2013 NaNoEmo Event.November NaNoEmo 20132 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
NaNoEmo = Nabe November Emotes
(nabe: shortening and respelling of neighbourhood)
What is NaNoEmo?
NaNoEmo is a fun emoticon challenge hosted every November to match up with NaNoWriMo in the literature community. Over the last 2 years we have had a fair number of emoticonists taking part and some fantastic emotes appearing all through the designated month.
The main purpose of the challenge is to encourage emoticonists to make emotes throughout the month of November. The most common challenge undertaken is to make 30 emotes in 30 days, though others choose to set alternative targets which better suit their other commitments or art style.
Whilst our previous NaNoEmo event hosted this June was restricted to only visual purpose emotes, the November event returns to the 'normal' format where any emote style is accepted. So it is completely up to you whether you

There’s a word floating around Hollywood right now that is coveted like no other. That word is “Universe.”

dA would NEVER give away a free 12 month premium.
Seriously... This is dA we're talking about.
This is nothing new (as seen that this same thing happened in 2013 and onward) but please, be on your guard.
Quite a few people have been posting about this web url that supposedly was sent to them by Deviantart about a 'free premium membership' through either a note or an email.
First of all, DON'T CLICK IT.

PE Gallery Descriptions: NonfictionPE Gallery DescriptionsPE Gallery Descriptions: Nonfiction1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Literature > Prose > Nonfiction
What belongs in the nonfiction gallery?
Loosely speaking, nonfiction is anything true. This includes stories from your childhood, journalistic accounts of what's happening in the world today, and opinions, even when they're about fictional topics.
So writing about why you think Loki x horse is the best ship ever could go to the Editorial gallery, but actually writing a story about the birth of Sleipnir belongs in (fan) fiction.
The Editorial gallery is a place to submit pieces that take a definite side. A review will let the reader decide whether or not they want to look into something, but works submitted here say 'this is my opinion, and here's why it's a good opinion.' A persuasive essay can be an editorial, too.Academic Essays is pretty self-expl

Any suggestions are welcome to help this article grow.
Questions about what to do, when you're told you stole this picture and was asked to take it down, etc.:
I was told by someone that I took this picture without crediting.- If they call out on you for not stating the artist's name, consider that a proper source is "Art by Username."
- Crediting is not "Creds to arts"; "Found on Google".
- It only takes a few seconds to actually look at the name from the website you found it, and add their name.
- You should use this as practice. When doing school projects, I bet a teacher has annoyed you by asking "Where did you get this idea? Why didn't you put the link from where you took it?"
- Same applies to the internet.
I was told by someone that I took this picture without permission.- If
Facepalm-Worthy Series 2JUNE 2006. 3rd uni year (dunno why it seems I had all my fails in my uni period)Facepalm-Worthy Series 23 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Unfortunately I use to be a person who has SO intense and vivid dreams (and really bad ones). One day this played a dirty trick on me:
I left my cell phone on my bedside table as usual and went to sleep because next day I had an exam at 9:00 a.m.
It seems I was that obsessed and nervous about my exam that I dreamt my best uni friend phoned me at 8:00 a.m. or so to tell me I must not forget that our "Preventive Medicine III" teacher postponed the exam one hour later.
Ok, I just believed that dream.
My alarm clock rang and I totally passed. I slept 45 mins more. Now imagine my face when I went to uni by bus one hour later and saw all my classmates coming out of the classroom rather than entering it :iconaloneplz:
Just then I understood all.
I just wanted to leave this world.
