I just have a "public service announcement" type thing regarding my art - and everyone's art, for that matter. No matter who it is, where they're from, or how popular they are. The message is this: IF YOU REPOST SOMEONE'S ART ANYWHERE, CREDIT IT AND DON'T EDIT IT.
I've had a LOT of people reposting my art with no credit at all, editing my pictures for icons/profile pictures/simply removing the signature, and impersonating me and claiming my characters as theirs. My main problem seems to be with Facebook, but this is not okay anywhere at any time.
I understand that a lot of people put time and work into collecting and putting together image collections. I understand that they do this because they really like the art. It can be flattering when people want to share your art with others because they like it and think it is worth being seen by others. It is not flattering, however, when people post the a

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

VLC Media Player Audio Sync FixI was raging a few minutes ago because this video's audio was out of sync bad.VLC Media Player Audio Sync Fix3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And After Effects and crappy Movie Maker didn't want to load the audio so I couldn't fix it manually.
I was about to cry, but then I found help! So, I thought I'd share this with anyone who uses VLC and has encountered a similar problem.
Load the video file you want to watch in VLC.
If the audio is coming too soon, press fn + k on your keyboard to reduce the speed.
If the audio is coming too late, press fn + j on your keyboard to increase the speed.
Neither option will distort the audio so don't be afraid to increase or reduce audio speed a lot.
I had to decrease the speed of mine to -600 before it was finally in sync. @ _ @
So I can attest to having no audio distortions.

casually has a heart attackI stayed after school for a long time, right?casually has a heart attack2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was a nice day, so I sat and drew this chick in front of me.
She left and I drew scenery.
Dad comes after 40 something minutes and picks me up.
I tell him I drew something.
I shouldn't have done that.
Because he asked to see it.
and it's in my sketchbook.
I almost ripped it out and handed it to him.
But I hate doing that.
So I handed him the sketchbook while he's driving.
I watch him intensly to make sure he doesn't look at other pictures.
He looks at the one I drew for a long time.
Comments on it.
I'm dying to have it back.
I can barely breathe.
Because its full of all the smut and sex drawings.
And most of it is gay.
Which my dad…yeah.
He doesn't like it persay.
And then he turns the page.
AND I AM SO FUCKING HAPPY THIS WAS THERE.
AND THEN I VERY LOUDLY SAID "CAN I HAVE THAT BACK?"
AND MY DAD LAUGHED AND ASKED IF IT WAS FILLED WITH DIRTY THINGS.
I TOOK IT BACK AS SOON AS I COULD.
I LAUGHED AND SAID NO.

16Hello everybody!162 years ago in Personal More Like This
Heeey I just turned 16!
I'm really happy - today I'm gonna celebrate it with my family and I'm gonna have a party next Saturday!
I can't wait, I love birthday parties!
In this journal I want to write about all the good things that happened to me since my 15th birthday.
In this last year I started playing the guitar, I started doing digital art, I found a lot of good music but most importantly: I met wonderful and interesting people, not only in real life, but also here on deviantart. They have made this last year a special and very good one, and I am very grateful for that!
These are some of the people that are very important to me:

Blind Flying"If there ever comes a day when we can't be together keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever." Winnie the PoohBlind Flying2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sitting on the small wooden chair outside of the door to the flat; the city noises have died out finally. Friday has rolled on into dark early Saturday morning and the winds that moved through hard the day before, and the day before that have dropped to a quiet breath of cold on my overheated skin. My cheap black glass ashtray is on the wooden railing close beside my left arm; I mark it by the bit of scatter light that reflects and shows its spot. The rain that dropped earlier on my walk back from the bar has ceased so there is no caress of softness to muffle occasional things. A dog barks some blocks away. A car shushes down the streets of the perpendicular intersection. I have my iPhone with its play lists and ear buds but I'm happy in this city semi-silence. Katie, the history student that lives next door is asleep. She got off work at nine as I
My opinion on Hackers and Twitter infoSo, one of my friend recently posted this message:My opinion on Hackers and Twitter info2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hacker: Hello i am hacker 302, I use an advanced setup to find passwords on anything. that means I can hack you easily, i have hacked *NetZe and !DAFeatureForPoints ~ZacharyRylend ~Colbenluvzzach and you may be next. Repost this in your journal before i find you next, if you do you might be safe..
you better hurry before i find you
i see every one who views this, i will hack you if you do not repost."
I totally agree with her for posting it, I would be a little freaked out too but my main issue is why? And what i mean is WHY WHY WHY HACKERS WHY?
What could have a random person cruising on whatever social network have done to you for you to break into their account? I just don't understand it. So, I dunno, if you are a hacker reading this, just out of curiosity and in no way meaning to offend anyone, i am honestly just interested to why on earth you would put fear into people like that?
