Trivial passwords are easy to violateWandering on DeviantART I noticed that the accounts of some deviants have been attacked recently and deactivated by hackers.Trivial passwords are easy to violate3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'm not a great expert in the operation of dA, but for various reasons (including professional) I know that an account is potentially vulnerable if you use a trivial password for access to it.
For example, with a Brute Force Attack, this password:
123654 is crackable in 0.1 seconds
hthsrt is crackable in 5 hours
john2011 is crackable in 3 days
bluechibi is crackable in 6 days
jennifer123 is crackable in 417 years
P*2nhY90/j35 is crackable in 100 million years but it is very difficult to remember!
Is very important create an unbreakable password, but which you can remember easily, without needing to write it down somewhere.
You can, however, use a complete sentence that describes something that only we know and nobody will ever guess.
The sentence: I am the tenth king of Quotzland (nob
Mastering TypographyMastering TypographyMastering Typography1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Typography is a rather obscure field, which is quite odd because typography is in everything you read. As such, it’s very important for a graphic designer to know everything there is to know about typography and preferably also the history and anatomy of typefaces. Bad typography is usually only consciously noticeable by type geeks (like me), however even someone who knows absolutely nothing about typography will find text with bad typography harder to read. In this article you will learn some basic principles and features to advance your typography.
Before we have a look at the features to improve your typography we have to select the right software. A few features which will be discussed in this article can be used pretty much regardless of the software but for most things you have to use genuine design software, so a program like Microsoft Word won’t suffice. You can achiev
PE: Walkthroughs, an alternative way to learnPE: Walkthroughs, an alternative way to learn1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Walkthroughs, alongside tutorials, are always an excellent way to learn. It's really helpful to get educated through a tutorial which tells exactly what to do in a detailed way step by step. However at times what is even more helpful is to actually see the artist in action, there are things you need to see get done by yourself and here is where walkthroughs come into play.
There's always something fascinating about seeing the different stages of the creation process of a piece, and you can always learn from the artists and adapt part of said process to your own.
Besides showing part of this process through images which show the different stages of a piece, and
PE: CSS3 101 - IntroductionPE: CSS3 101 - Introduction11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Hey there Devious CSSkinners!
First off, hover over the Title and Stamp to see some snazzy effects. That's the kind of stuff that CSS3 allows users to play around with. As I had been an Alpha Tester on devBUG, we had a few CSS3 privileges to test in Journal Skins in which several deviants had asked me "How did you do that?" and "Please share the code so we can learn" so I've been meaning to give a few lessons on CSS3 since forever and projecteducate has given me the opportunity to do so
These are the Topics that will be covered this week:
May 27th - Introduction
May 28th - Color Gradients
May 30th - Pseudo-elements & Pseudo-Classes
May 31st - Transition Animations

The Journal Feature ChallengeI love featuring art in my journal on a regular basis. There is so much great art around here that I find fascinating and I wish more people could see it. It's a great way to discover new artists and find inspiration. You can always browse and search for art on your own, but in my experience, is a lot more effective to search through collections curated by artists with interests similar to yours, as in their favourites or features in their journals. Besides, is also a great way to show your appreciation for artists you admire! And usually artists do appreciate the promotion when you let them know.The Journal Feature Challenge10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Exploiting dA Legally With A ScriptIn short, what is this news about?Exploiting dA Legally With A Script4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It's about accounts that use a script to add ten thousands of deviants to their watchlist in a matter of days. Some people backwatch, that's how the script-account gains popularity and watchers (or points via donation if you want to). Even if they don't backwatch, some people will at least look at the site and may watch through your gallery or journal.
It's legal, I asked the helpdesk on this.
The problem is that the deviants being added by the script feel betrayed and disappointed. I want to inform people about this in the first place so they don't fall for those "traps". You can have a look at their gallery stats to see if there's something suspicious like ten thousands of watches. A profile full of "Thank you for the watch" comments is also suspicious.
Ideally however, I'd like deviantART to improve their security so those scripts stop working. I fear those scripts to get popular and watch-notifications to become meaningless. I don't want to

Sans serif — Roman
In this article/tutorial I will show you how to design a typeface. I will cover the basics and show you how to design advanced letters as well. There is so much I can talk about though, so if people like this article I might expand on this with future articles and get more into detail. I will only cover the design though, so you will have to research how to do the spacing and programming and turn your typeface into a usable font—or wait until I might do an article on that as well, but I don’t have such an article planned anytime soon.
What will we design?
I will first show you how to design some basic letters for a geometric sans typeface like Futura, because it utilizes geometric shapes, which is always my starting point for every typeface regardless of style. O
