Islamophobia in DAFOR MUSLIMS: (Non-Muslims can also read. I have no secrets to hide )Islamophobia in DA4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Alright, we are in an Art community here where people express themselves through Art.
well, that's great.
we have people of different faiths and religions here in a great community.
From time to time, there are some people who, through ignorance or hate, produce something to insult Islam or represent Islam in an offensive manner that has no truth. some people try to make a bad representation of the last prophet of Islam -peace and blessings be upon him- hoping it would offend Muslims. these people believe that this is their right of free expression. well, not all people would agree about it, but this is not the issue I want to talk about.
Now it's a fact there is a bunch of people trying to spread a corrupted image of Islam. these people All have crappy art style. if I had a chimp, I am pretty sure he would draw better. but this is also not the issue.
Now these people believe that Islam is against freedom

PE DD Week: Why did an icon get a DD?Why did an icon get a DD?PE DD Week: Why did an icon get a DD?3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Daily deviations tend to be a controversial topic within the community and whether or not a DD is worthy of the feature is, as such, often discussed.
As a CV for Icons & Handhelds I often find it interesting to read these discussions, since that way I can see what the community expects of the features, but the recent negativity on the Icons & Handhelds DDs is something I would like to address, which is why I'm thankful I'm given this opportunity during the Daily Deviation PE-week. I will try to explain why I think icons and handhelds are worthy of the feature and why they may be dismissed just a bit too quickly.
Let's begin at the beginning.
When deviantART first started, it was a site that mainly geared towards customization. Be it wallpapers or icons, if you take a look at some of the first DDs. So how come there'
I'm ^alicexz now! + DD GuidelinesHi everyone! As of today I've been made one of the new Community Volunteers by Moonbeam13 and I'll be looking after the Digital Art gallery, along with Negatic! Woo! Very exciting and I am definitely going to have a great time this year. My job will be to do some general moderating around the community; organizing deviations and miscategorizations, posting news and features and offering general support! Hopefully I can even get some contests going in the future! I'll be painting and posting art and carrying on in all my usual deviant things, so that won't change - I'll just be busier!I'm ^alicexz now! + DD Guidelines4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Could be an amazing digital painting, a fun stamp, a quick photograph that made me smile, perhaps a piece for a weekly theme, whatever. However, it moved me enough to share it with my visitors.

Hey let's make a collection of Naruto characters plz-icons and stamps! As there are so many plz-icons and stamps out there we'll need your help in making this collection thrive! Post your icons in the comments and we'll add them as well!
If you're wondering, here is how you can actually use plz-icons and stamps.
They can be used in comments, journal entries and in your dA-ID. To use a specific icon, take a look at what the name of the icon is, and then do the following.
-copy the name of the icon, for example, narutoplz
-enter the name along with ':icon' in front of it and end it with ':' (it should look like this :iconnarutoplz:)
-if you're uncertain whether or not you've got the right icon (or if it's actually going to work), click 'preview' next to the 'submit' button
We Will Never ForgetMarch 16th is the anniversary of Rachel Corrie's deathWe Will Never Forget3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Rachel Aliene Corrie (April 10, 1979 March 16, 2003)
was an American member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM)
She died whilst acting as a human shield to prevent
the demolition of the home of local pharmacist Samir Nasrallah
The ISM said she had placed herself between the bulldozer
and a wall near Nasrallah's home
Members of the ISM said that she was killed by the Israeli bulldozer
and that there was nothing to obscure the driver's view
Rachel was a student at The Evergreen State College
She had taken a year off to travel to the Gaza Strip during the Second Intifada
A Bit of Begging I think most of you know that Ravenswd and I created a holiday animation back in October. http://ravenswd.deviantart.com/art/Musical-Emote-Holiday-Lights-2-260223458 I don't do this often. I don't like to beg for myself because it makes me feel very whorish (I'll beg for others because that's more what begging is for in my book). Anyhow, could you pimp it out? One of the reasons we released it early was to get it exposure, but I know we released it *too* early. We had to, but that's a moot point. I don't mean mentioning it for a DD either, as I know many people have already and I don't hold any hope for that. I just want it to get some views for the holiday. The last time we did this, it went up a few days before Christmas and hardly anyone saw it. I'm actually thinking of taking it down from Ravenswd's account and re-posting it here on my account as I have more watchers and perhaps we'll get some more looks.A Bit of Begging4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Now all the premium members can have a small widget like thing in your deviation to directly sell your contents. I know it looks cool to have that cool widget thing displayed in your deviation page. But is it really worth it? Think about it!
Perhaps you've clearly read what it says... 80% revenue shall be transferred to the the seller and rest goes to deviantART! So, why should a seller loose 20% of the revenue if he/she can sell the same content by other means and yet loose nothing? The seller might not loose but then the buyer looses if the seller doesn't.
Let me get into more details with some scenarios and example to make more sense....

Now you may be excited to sell it using the new premium content platform. Right? So, what do you do? You quote 1000pts as

The concept of "original characters" may be a bit foreign to writers, as when you create a piece of literature, in most cases, everyone in the story is an original character. However, with advent of role-playing (in its many various forms), non-writers and writers alike found themselves created characters to use in games and otherwise. Sometimes the characters represent themselves, other times not. The main thing that remains the same is that they are loved and cherished by their creator. And who doesn't love showing off their creations. A while ago, I ran a poll asking my watchers and visitors to share some o

March 30, 2013 - Master List surpassed 700 deviants
November 30, 2013 - Master List surpassed 750 deviants
This is the master list of deviants we pull from when we choose the emote to feature for the day.
By no means is this list ever fully complete, if you don't find yourself on the list, note us or comment on this journal and we can add you to the list, if you meet the following criteria:
1. You must have at least 1 emoticon in your gallery, otherwise we ain't got nothing to feature if your name comes up.
2. You can only have up to three separate accounts from your main account on the list.
Any deviant's name with an asterisk and a number next to it means that that user has an alternate account, and can be found with the same asterisk number code. If I've made any mistakes, such as the wrong accounts linked together or one account has no emotes on it, don't be afraid to sen

I.I.T.Eyes featureThere is nothing strange when a Muslim makes a contribution for Islam or for Muslims. but when a non-Muslim does that, it raises feelings of admiration and respect among Muslims. and maybe raises eyebrows, confusion and questioning among many non-Muslims. throughout history, many non-Muslims expressed honest and positive opinions and thoughts about Islam. this expression takes different forms. here in deviantART, being an art community, it takes the form of drawing, photography and literature.I.I.T.Eyes feature4 years ago in Personal More Like This
