Acts of Random Kindness!Hi there, fellow deviants!Acts of Random Kindness!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this small introductory journal, I'd like to explain an idea for a project I'm expanding upon.
So stay put, it's going to be an interesting read, I promise!
What are Acts of Random Kindness?
Acts of Random Projects, also known as ARKs is a project that was initially started by MzzAzn and builds upon the idea of "paying it forward".
Basically, each month you commit yourself to doing at least one or two (or more) random acts of kindness to spread positivity throughout the community.
This can be done by leaving small positive comments on pieces that haven't been commented on yet, by making art for someone, by giving points to donate towards someone's goal and in a various amount of other ways. The main idea is simply to do something constructive to make another person smile. It doesn't need to be a big gesture, it's the sentiment behind it that counts.
Why should I participate?
Besides the fac

Points Challenge: Be A Hero, Report a Miscat!Points Challenge: Be A Hero, Report a Miscat!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Miscats: What are they? Why do they matter? How do they happen?
REMINDER: This challenge is only open until October 31st! Get your comments in by then or miss out on points!
A "miscat" is a deviation that has been submitted to the wrong gallery, or mis-categorized, on deviantART. For example, literature does not belong in the photography gallery, even if there is a photograph supplied as a preview picture for the writing.
They matter for several reasons. Miscats make searching for specific types of deviations tedious, particularly if you are looking for newer submissions. A search of the Writing Tutorials gallery for popular deviations in the last 24 hours brought up four deviations, all miscats. Miscats also make the site disorganized and even harder to navigate for new comers. Lastly, they make your work harder to reach by taking up space in the wrong gallery.
I'm sure others can think of reasons why miscats are annoying, and I invite you to leav

We won't be giving away any more free keys (we'll give it to everyone who noted us so far, which is about 15 people) but if you still want the chocolate you're more than welcome to order some we just won't be offering the free key because 15 free keys is a few more than we planned anyway ^^
Sorry if this sounds a little silly, but...
Ok so you know how kids go around selling chocolates? Well, my niece lives in the middle of nowhere and I guess now a days they tell kids not to go around house to house selling chocolates, so she really, REALLY wants to get the prize for selling chocolate, (the prize is just more chocolate but... well, you know how exciting it is to win something). But it's for helping raise money for her school, so they can buy supplies (and her school does need things, like most schools).
So she asked if I could put some on here to see if any people wanted some

When I started the Wordsmiths group here at DA, I had three goals - produce a new sitehttp://word-smyths.com/ , an ezine http://artsmyths.wordpress.com/ and a paid poetry contest. I have accomplished the first two.
I am about to embark on the third project - a poetry contest with a cash prize awarded to the first three place winners.
The contest will be poetry only and will run from August 1 - October 31, 2012. The theme is "Color". You can choose to write about one color, or many. You can describe a situation, person, object, scene - anything, but describe it in color(s). How it looks...makes you feel.

Today, there are parades around the world to celebrate the day.

Jack's Back(For anyone who has read my Jack Frost Moment entry) So, I had to take a trip around town to finish up some errands. I went to the nearest grocery store to pick up some things I needed (that and I just ran out of hot chocolate). I was just turning the corner to get to my lovely coco substance when I heard a familiar laugh. It was the laugh of a little girl, peaked around the corner to find the greatest New Years surprise in the world, it was little Amy from the theater. I took a quick look over of myself and thanked the heavens I just happen to be wearing my blue hoodie again. I slipped around the corner and couldn't help but grin from ear to ear. She was with her grandmother and Amy was jumping up and down wanting to get into the buggy. I stood there waiting for her to turn around when her grandmother looked up and saw me first. She pointed in my direction and Amy turned around.Jack's Back2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The time has come to announce our plans for ARKs. Acts of Random Kindness are those little things you do for others that make them and you feel great! You might leave a nice comment for a new deviant welcoming them to dA, leave a helpful critique for a struggling artist, grant a wish at dAWishingWell, answer a burning question to help a deviant out, donate to a donation pool, give a premium sub to another member, and more! If it is kind, promoting positivity and makes people smile, it is probably an ARK!

Just because you shot it in the street...PE: JUST BECAUSE YOU SHOT IT IN THE STREET IT DOESN'T MAKE IT "STREET PHOTOGRAPHY"Just because you shot it in the street...2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Street Photography is a largely misunderstood and misinterpreted photography genre.
Browsing dA's Street Gallery I'd say that people are under the impression that street photography is photography of:
1 street signs
2 side-walk close-ups
3 love padlocks
4 shoes (All Stars preferably)/photographer's feet
5 graffiti/tags/street art/cool vandalism
6 empty roads
9 abandoned buildings/urband decay/trash
10 cool cars
11 cosplayers posing in fairs
12 family in family-trips, friends in cool poses
13 sexy models in subways/women wrestling in swimming suit (don't ask, I don't know)
14 lights bokeh
15 light paintings
So, let's try to kill the most common misunderstandings:
Street photography is not photography of (empty) streets and it is not necessarily a photo taken in a street.
Street photography most definitely is not photography of your All Stars shoes in the st

Fanart Used to Save CommunityI enjoy the TV show Community. A lot. However, what I enjoy most about this show is the story and, well, community behind it. When the show went on a sudden hiatus, I couldn't help but be inspired by how Community fans harnessed the power of the arts not only to cope, but help save the show.Fanart Used to Save Community3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Last year, NBC announced Community would be put on hiatus for an unspecified amount of time, causing an outrage in the show's fan base. Once the announcement was made, fans took to social media to complain. This is a relatively normal response in this day and age, but strangely enough, the outrage didn't wane. In fact, it only strengthened as the final episode for the mid-season approached, and the looming uncertainty as to the show's fate became a reality.
Flash mobs were formed. Targeted campaigns were organized to urge Community's advertisers to continue support for the show. And, most relevant of
