SOPA/PIPA Opposition: WOW!!We witnessed history this Wednesday, all in the form of an inconvenience. So what if you couldn't access Wikipedia? If they didn't do what they did on Wednesday, we wouldn't be (temporarily) celebrating a huge victory not just for the Internet, but for free speech all around the world.SOPA/PIPA Opposition: WOW!!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wikipedia blacked itself out to protest two bills in the US Congress; the Stop Online Piracy Act (details here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_Online_Piracy_Act) in the House of Representatives and the PROTECT-IP Act (details here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protect_IP_Act) in the Senate.
The thing about these bills how bad they were. They were clearly written and supported by people who had no idea what the hell they were trying to legislate, and thus were threatening to, as one opponent said, result in "the end of the Internet as we know it". And for a while, it looked as though they were going to get away with it.
For the longest time, no major media company mentioned it, except

She ground the pill into powder and sprinkled it into Sneakers's (Our dog) water bowl and I watched as he happily lap the last drop of the "enchanted" water.

This year's Back to Middle-earth Month event will involve putting together a compilation of writing and art related to the theme "Four Seasons of Middle-earth." Each day during the month of March, we will post a selection of stories, poetry, and artwork created in response to prompts related to this year's theme.
Important note: This event is supported and organized by several Tolkien-related groups and archives, but is centered around the b2mem LiveJournal community to synchronize all of them. The group Arda-Inspired on deviantArt provides a place where dA members can share their creations for this event, but the primary place where these should be posted is this LJ community.
Once you have read the guidelines, you can visit this post to view the prompts and claim your prompt.
About PricingAlright, I know this is a huge thing in the adoptable community (or, well, the art community in general). I just want to say that, while I know for some my prices may be seen as overpriced, in most cases they are auction adoptables and thus people only pay what they're comfortable with (and whether that be $10 or $100+, please be respectful to the people who do choose to spend their money as they like).About Pricing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I personally feel the art community is urged to underprice themselves. You don't have to agree with me, but that's what I've gathered from seeing artists over the years. But I'm going to talk about my art for this, specifically adoptables, so here's my breakdown: people are purchasing, not only character art, but the time it took to make as well as a character design. What that may be worth to one person may be worth something completely different to another, so I ask that you please respect that.
For auction prices going too high--I can't agree that there should be a point where

There was a time when childhood heroes were real life human beings people dreamed of emulating when they “grew up.” There were sports heroes, famous astronauts, war heroes, political figures, the leaders of social and humanitarian causes, etc..

The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”
Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin

Each Chapter’s End
Context is everything. The same photographs and paintings of airport terminals and train compartments and subway platforms that seem so cold and forbidding in contemplation of one’s traveling out into the world, somehow become reassuring in their hard functionality and durability – when thought of as the pathway to the journey back home. Faces of travelers photographed in airports often exhibit muted “Mona Lisa smiles,” masking the direction (to or away from home) that they are headed.

My favorite piece overall. How they done this was so unique. Shows Cint's cute and yandere in a gif format. This piece is wonderfully done in concept and visuals. I would give you a higher prize amount if I could! ;A;
When I saw this, I was amazed how by how well the artist drew Rose's Problem. A very great job in my opinion!
The gothic dress and the hint of strawberry do nice to show the character's likes.
Information on ACTA, TPPA and NDAA + protest linksTaken from :iconXarti: http://xarti.deviantart.com/journal/It-s-The-Season-of-Petitioning-Protests-283474190Information on ACTA, TPPA and NDAA + protest links4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, though I'm a bit shy in posting this (I don't know if I am good explaining or wording this).
Here's my reasons why I don't support ACTA.
For a bill that's suppose to prevent piracy, here's what it will do:
Destroy freedom of speech - Especially on the internet.
Under ACTA, the government and the elite will censor what they considered as 'Copywrite Infringement.' By shutting down sites. They will have control over the information and we would be in the dark(The government has been meaning ), this would effect news sites and information sites as well, since they can't spread and/or report. Our blogs and online journals will be censored as well. All of this goes against America's Constitution of Freedom of Speech amendment.
Stifle trade, especially of generic medicines -
In seeking on how to protect brands from piracy under the name of patenting, ACTA will halt gen

I have been MIA for the past few days and may remain so for the next few days as I have a couple of rather messed up Uni stuff I got to take care of. I wasn't available last night for the chatroom or any of the streams as I went to have dinner, watch a movie and play a board game with some friends. Great evening, had loads of fun, took the bus in the wrong direction heading out of town (Don't ask how that happened) and was back at home by 9 AM. Went to bed and then I woke up at noon with another royal depression. But as I have said before, I've been working on ways to deal with the grief.... namely distract myself with homework, games and [REDACTED]. I really need to keep my mind busy, these past few weeks my mind has been my worst enemy.

reposted art removalI think a lot of people might already know this but having only recently found it myself. I think it's a good opportunity to share it with everyone! If someone has posted your art on deviantart without your permission, there's a really simple way of having taken down instead of filing a report (which, from experience is completely ineffective). All you have to do is fill out this form, it's a DMCA form which means as the copyright owner of the art you can elect to have it taken down, by law.reposted art removal2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I didn't find out about filing DMCAs on deviantart until I googled it (silly I know) but they have long existed on tumblr and I've also seen one on weheartit.com.
