[MacType] New font smoother for windowsHeya folks,[MacType] New font smoother for windows2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't know about you, but I was always sick of the default windows font rendering, that's why I used GDI++ with Windows XP and GDIpp with Win7, until a few months ago GDIpp worked great, but then there where a lot of compatibility issues (Google Chrome/Firefox).
Now I found this http://www.mediafire.com/?8cnc6v7z7w4e647 on a chinese board http://bbs.themex.net/forumdisplay.php?f=88 (yeah yeah yeah, at least with google translate I could read something )
Works awesome and you can switch language, still a pretty shitty translation, but great tools to create configs and it runs as a service.

dA is so full of crap art these daysIt really annoys me when people complain about crap art, or bad art, or unworthy-of-the-title-of-art art on dA, especially when they say that there should be enforced quality standards. Apart from having no clue how those standards would be defined or enforced, I'm pretty sure most of the stuff I created when I was 13 wouldn't exactly stand up to the scrunity of the art police, but it was how I started on the road I'm on now, which has led me to my art being my career.dA is so full of crap art these days2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I feel I still have a loooong way to go but I'm happy with where I've gotten to so far. Everyone starts somewhere...even if that place isn't exactly overflowing with skill and expertise. Inspiration, experimentation and simply having a go at something new are valuable things which don't deserve to be squashed by subjective quality control.
For the record, celebrity Photoshop 'blends', movie trailer wallpapers and (un)motivational posters made with screengrabs from games, cartoons etc do bug me. I totally understand why d

A New Way to Make SuggestionsHello Beta Testers!A New Way to Make Suggestions9 months ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
For some time we've been running a limited test of the Ideas Forum on our Zendesk Help Desk integration. Today, we're expanding this test to our Beta Testers.
This forum allows for a great deal of flexibility in how we approach suggestions.
We can mark items that are planned, completed, or not planned at this time. We can also highlight staff responses on forums, giving more weight to responses that are important in informing deviants why we can, or cannot, take a suggestion into consideration at this time.
Deviants can vote on one anothers' posts, giving greater community control over what content is reviewed. The more votes, the higher the suggestion will appear in the forum! Unlike our current forum, threads don't expire, and when creating a new thread you'll be prompted with similar threads.
These are only a few of the features the new forum has, but altogether our testing has shown thus far that
Self Suggesting DD'sThank you so much for all the +favs, the comments and +devwatchs I've received and still am for my Daily Deviation "Carried Away". You guys are awesome and I appreciate your support so much!Self Suggesting DD's2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Now I have a confession to make... I self suggested this deviation to DomiSM, so it didn't come as a surprise I received it.
I know from being a volunteer that some people feel that DD's should be suggested by others or that it should be a surprise. Well no, not always. Sometimes you have to fight for your work to gain exposure. Gone are the days where deviantART was a small site... you need to learn how to use the channels on dA to get the exposure your work deserves.
These days, I work in vector and the high pecentage of work I upload to dA is client work. A huge part of being a Freelancer is marketting yourself and putting yourself out there. This is why self suggesting yourself for a Daily Deviation should be

Disclaimer: This is a compilation article written by RockstarVanity, pullingcandy and Lyricanna. While we do not speak for the whole team, some of the points do generalize. I want to state now that these are preferences, not hard fast rules and every CV has their own. The only hard fast rules are that resources must be credited and no one can receive more than one DD within 6 months.
Have you ever wondered why some CVs include fave or DD limits in their DD suggestion guidelines? Why some of us will give a 6th DD or DD a piece with 10 000 faves and others will not? Here are some reasons why.
Why won't you DD an artist that already has 5 DDs?
:iconlyricanna: The reason for this at it's simplest is to involve as much of the community as possible in DDs. The more detailed version has 3 factors

What's Hot (Beta): Trending Artwork on deviantARTArt on the RiseWhat's Hot (Beta): Trending Artwork on deviantART1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
DeviantART is a bustling and active community, and with the high volume of artwork submitted on any given day, it can be easy to miss something. In fact, it's common for artwork to go viral across the Web or get a spike of traffic days, months, or even years after it was originally submitted.
Our new “What’s Hot” browse mode surfaces artwork that’s receiving a recent increase in exposure, regardless of when it was submitted.
A New Way To Surface Artwork
We often see artwork gain a lot of attention across the Web (after being shared on blogs, social sites, etc.), but by the time this recognition occurs, our search engines don't consider it when displaying recently "Popular" deviations. The new "What’s Hot" mode is built to celebrate these surges of exposure.
What's Hot vs. Popular
The content of the “What’s Hot” page uses an algorithm that reflects what artwork has recently garnered attention, regardless of when it was subm

American Internet Censorship Bill Part 2Yesterday I posted a journal about my thoughts on the American Internet Censorship Bill that was being voted on by the House of Representatives. Within minutes of me posting I found out that the bill was defeated by a majority vote (though a very close one). So for now our precious internet is free once again, but it also raises an entirely different discussion...American Internet Censorship Bill Part 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of the comments I saw on the various websites I went to dealt with upholding the true definition of "freedom" on the internet. It was quite apparent that a lot of people who were upset at the idea of internet censorship were more or less concerned that they might have to be held responsible for their bad behavior online.
