'Hacking Link' going around on dAi saw NinjaKato got this today, and I was upset. ;U; I don't do chain mail, but this is important and I've seen proof that this is real, go to Sterling-Kato's profile and there will be a journal explaining EVERYTHING that happened. These links were spread EVERYWHERE in the last 24 hours, so a lot of you have probably gotten yourselves into this problem, too.'Hacking Link' going around on dA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently, there's been a link circulating on deviantART that automatically
deactivates your account. Somehow, the site was hacked into, and now
if you visit ~gary-niger's profile and type in your
username and password to log in, you're dead. So if you see this link
in your URL bar: bosslegen.de/users/login/ DO NOT LOG IN. GO BACK TO THE DEVIANTART HOMEPAGE RIGHT AWAY.
The link itself does you no harm whatsoever, and you can browse the
profile all you want, but when the artificial login screen appears, DO
NOT TYPE ANYTHING IN. This gives them access to your account,
which will be deactivated, and it's simply bad news a

Comic-Con: Day 2Comic-Con Day 2 was all about cosplay, fandom, and art, art, art!Comic-Con: Day 23 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Before we get into the thick of things, we didn’t have a photo of our huge plasma screens hanging from the convention ceiling to share in our Day 1 recap, so we vowed to get that to you today! The 11 foot wide screens stream amazing works of art from Artists' Alley participants to the whole convention floor!
In Comic-Cons past, the foot traffic In Artists’ Alley got busier and busier as the week progressed, and this year is no exception. There’s something magical about speaking one-on-one with a deviant, learning their experiences, hearing how they started as an artist, and how far they’ve come. It’s an emotional connection to make with someone who was practically a stranger a few moments ago -- and then you realize you’re not really strangers when you

I feel like it's a good day for complaining.
So, complain about anything you don't like.
It can be life problems, general state of mind, a person, something deviantART related... anything you want.
Just let it all out.
I might try to help with an advice.
Plus, you can win 200 points.
In order to participate you only have to:
a) this journal
b) and complain about something that gets on your nerves.
I will use random.org to pick one lucky/grumpy winner
I hope you like this idea, and have fun complaining
My complaint (dA related):
I hate it when people keep posting body pics to get attention from perverts/stalkers.
Especially, if they repost 42354235 times to get more favorites on certain photos. Gets on my nerves.

Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous ExamplesJust for fun I thought I'd do a rundown of the most common forms of humor, their definitions, and examples. This is not a complete list by any means, but they are a list of many forms of humor and literature discourse which often get confused of mixed up.Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous Examples2 years ago in Personal More Like This
An imitative work created to mock, comment on or trivialize an original work, its subject, author, style, or some other target, by means of satiric or ironic imitation.
Example: The movie "Airplane" is a parody of 1970's disaster movies. Many of Weird Al's music videos are parodies of other more famous music videos.
A work of visual art, literature, or music that imitates the style or character of the work of one or more other artists. Unlike parody, pastiche celebrates, rather than mocks, the work it imitates.
Example: The movie "Super 8" is a pastiche of 1980's adventure films, specifically imitating the style of Stephen Spielberg's early career,

LonelyCan countries feel lonely? Ask their leaders, and they say no. They are there to represent their people, and that is all. They cannot possibly have the capacity to feel.Lonely2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But they are wrong.
True, they are immortal, beyond what humans are. But they still have the emotions we do, and they can feel anything and everything. You don't think that Russia feels lonely, frightened of the dark and his sister, as he lies curled up, trying to block everything around him out. You don't think Prussia, locked away for years, now nothing more than a ghost who should not exist, feels the rush of pain and numbness, as everyone he knows is starting to forget him. How he lies alone at night, dreaming of better days, where he was loved, hated, and everything in between. You don't think that England, with so many ex-colonies, goes to his home, the weight of each and everyone of them leaving, heavy in his heart. He drowns his loneliness in alcohol, his only companion now a days, too ashamed to ask for help.

#SixWordStories: Monthly ShowcaseA type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.#SixWordStories: Monthly Showcase3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In our feature articles, we will be showcasing six word stories submitted to Freestyle folder.

deviantART v999We're working on deviantART v999. So far, it's a lot of prototypes, concepts and color explorations that are waiting for clarity on some technologies coming out of R&D.deviantART v9992 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
A lot of you probably wonder where the hell our mobile apps are. I do. Quick answer: They're trapped under a bigger project. It's worth the wait, but we're far overdue on release. The biggest problem has been the Message Center, whose architecture, look and feel, etc. simply doesn't port over to Mobile & Tablets. For these, we need to streamline the incredibly powerful experience of deviantART's message center, so that it can be consumed on smaller screens without having to click lots of buttons.
Activity Feeds are supposed to be the obvious solution. But at deviantART, people love their Message Centers specifically because they aren't feeds. Each item from your +watch list, or Feedback area comes in as an item. Each item must be removed from the Message Center by you. This is great because it allows us to
