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!!3 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

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 links3 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

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

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 removal1 year 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. Filing DMCAs seem to be a lot more effective, the art is taken down in a couple of days. And in the case with tumblr all reblogs of the post in question are also deleted, along

For those who have followed my gallery and characters, you might recognize this comic from awhile back. I certainly do, since it was a "push" that I haven't made good on in the way I've intended, but one that's stuck with me for all that it implies and foreshadows.
It's a bit heavy on dialogue, and weighted with a lot of ideas and emotions that may seem unusually stern and somber in comparison to the funky humor I've generally worked with. And because of all that weight crammed into a relatively short comic, and because i'm often overly critical of older works of mine, it also comes across as a little more tortured than I'd probably have done today. But I'm grateful--excited, even--that Mr. Haro chose to bring this one more to life, and here's why:
For years now, I've alluded to Bomango as a larger story, and occasionally hinted towards such things in comi
Let's talk about games journalismA lot has been said about the quality of games journalism, about the problems plaguing the review system and the relationship between the games industry and those supposed to keep it honest. The problem with this discussion, however, is that it doesn’t resemble a discussion at all… Things are being said, accusations made, statements dispensed, and yet there’s very little actual conversation to be had. Worrisome tendencies are shrugged off by industry insiders, while many gamers – frustrated with the lack of answers (as I am myself quite often) – bring out the big guns, accusing each and every review they disagree with as being “paid off” or otherwise influenced by big-name publishers.Let's talk about games journalism1 year ago in Personal More Like This

However, I am a Hetalia fan fiction writer for two years now, so it is more directed towards the Hetalia fandom.
So, I have never actually thought about doing this before until this past week, and I know a lot of people have done this, so you can probably find a better one than mine. Since I am finally back from hiatus, I thought this would be a good thing to do for aspiring authors or at least people who want to write better fan fics. I am by no means an excellent writer, but after about two years of writing fics, I have learned a few things that make fics better.
Okay, this is the most important rule of all. It is so, so important to spell correctly and use correct grammar because trust me, there is nothing that makes people close the tab so much more quickly than when a story is written sloppily, with little attention given to basic writing principles such as spelling gr

And then I thought of Hetalia. And then I thought up a totally legitimate excuse to post a journal about about it.
I was just thinking about all the opportunities these legends offer for Hetalia fan fictions of all kinds, including reader inserts. These would have a more mythical, historical view, a combination I know a lot of people enjoy, including myself. I think these subjects are things that could and should be included in a little more often. After all, a lot of people do like a good story. I picture reader inserts where either a country is telling you a tale from their homeland for whatever reason (like you can't sleep), or maybe the myths are actually true and you're living through them. And because I have nothing el
