Urgent! Need Help With Exposure on YouTube!I need $20....I need it so I can make a $100. Let me explain:Urgent! Need Help With Exposure on YouTube!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently, YouTube made me a partner or something. That means certain videos I upload there will make money for me with ads.
Not as much as Blip, or TGWTG...but that's because I don't have much of a precence on YouTube right now, especially since I got locked out on my old account. I still haven't heard from anyone about that...
Youtube is fun that way...for example, they have no problem hosting my "Top 11 Simpsons Halloween Special" but when I tried to upload my review on "Lindsey Neagle", that earned my a Copyright strike. What does that mean...well it means that for the next 6 months... Yes, 6 Months!...I can't upload any new videos that are over 15 minutes, which excludes a lot of my best new stuff, Most of which I don't want to break up, because they just barely go over 15 minutes.
And to make matters worse...there's a deadline...if you don't make a $100 dollars by the end of each month,

The deviantART and Sta.sh APIsWe've launched a set of APIs for deviantART and sta.sh, some of which were previously available but yet to be documented in a central place.The deviantART and Sta.sh APIs3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What can be done with these APIs?
Embed artwork from deviantART on your website or app, get feeds of quality art based on any keyword, submit any content to sta.sh for instant sharing.
The API calls we've made available are deliberately simple but open many doors. For example, we provide the ability to update a sta.sh item that has already been submitted through to the API. That opens the possibility of creating a live link between your app's instance of the artwork and the version we host. It makes it even possible to create live deviations that are updated automatically: http://fav.me/d4aeapg This is the kind of possibility one might not consider at first glance when reading the specification.

Lady With an Ermine by Leonardo da Vinci
This story had us wondering; would Leonardo Da Vinci have kept his deviations in storage, or just deleted them?
The painting is The Lady with an Ermine. Da Vinci’s model is Cecilia Gallerani, a mistress of Ludovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan. The Duke is Da Vinci’s patron of the last 18 years. Lumiere Technology in Paris has created a new technique for “x-raying” paintings called the Layer Amplification Method (LAM). A series of intense lights are projected on to a painting. Measurem

Art Theft And Hot Linking With WDWParksGalMy dear friend WDWParksGal, formerly a Community Volunteer, recently discovered that one of her deviations was being "high jacked", or the proper used termed, "hot linked". This is a very serious issue that not only affects the deviant, but also deviantArt. We have been overwhelmed with this issue the last few weeks causing many stock providers and too many manipulators to change the way they handle their deviations and sites. A few have emptied their gallery and left dA completely.Art Theft And Hot Linking With WDWParksGal3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Since I had the opportunity, I asked her if she would like to write an article concerning this matter, and she jumped at the chance! So following is WDWParksGal thoughts on this situation.

Okay, mares and stallions, here's the skinny. Due to the unexpected length of the Past Sins Print Project done by Equestria Publications as well as the fiasco with Paypal, some of the original signers never claimed their books. The original wait list has been processed, and they claimed a good portion of the remaining books. But there are still some left over.
So, for those who want a chance to get the hard cover print of Past Sins, this is your chance to get in on this first edition printing.
Now, before anyone panics, here is the base level information you need to know.
- As of yesterday morning, there are approximately 119 copies available. Be warned though that those on Equestria Publications' newsletter got this information yesterday morning, so that number has likely decreased.
- The printing cost per book is $21.21.
- Shipping cost will depend on location and number of ordered copies. Books ordered inside the US

You have to sign up to read the complete 14 pages but thought I'd let you guys know either way ...

The comic archives... (Also in Indonesian...) first episode:
'Kentang' means literally "Potato." It is also the main girl's name...
Story wise, it's a slice-of-life, light-comedy, coming-of-age comic about a girl who wants to become a chef, despite being relatively inexperienced and armed mainly with her sincere love for food.
"Efforts always have merit, even if sometimes it's not the way you might expect."

I remember when I was a kid I went to Cape Canaveral with my dad to watch a shuttle launch. Of course the damn thing was postponed due to weather. I did get to see one of the shuttles up close though.
I also remember when the Challenger exploded. My mom still has a copy of the newspaper from the day it happened.
It's really amazing to see this thing up close in such dramatic fashion, and also quite sad to know that it's being retired. I'm definitely going to go visit the Endeavor at the California Science Center.

Howl’s Moving Castle is best known as the 2004 animated fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
While it is as beautifully animated as all of Studio Ghibli's other films this was one of the few times Miyazaki based a film on an existing work. The film is an adaptation of British author Diana Wynne Jones’ 1986 young-adult novel by the same name and the first book in the Ho

In the deviantART booth, we witnessed something a little magical when the voice came over the loudspeaker to announce that Comic-Con was closed at 5:00 pm sharp, the remaining straggling attendees and exhibitors packing up stopped what they were doing and burst into applause. It was a mixture of relief, pride, and fulfillment of a successful convention.
Someone yelled, "See you in 365 days!" and there was a true moment of community with everyone in earshot. Sure, it's a sad sentiment, but it gives us all something to look forward to, and the months ahead will be filled with the happy memories of all we accomplished over the past week. Friends met that stop by every year, new friends, new properties to become fans of, new comic books to read and

VHEMT: A Cult for GenocideI was looking over the Internet all bored, trying to find a reason why birth rates in Germany, Japan, Italy, and Russia keep getting so low until I found out about this twisted and insane group called the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (VHEMT), a twisted, left-winged, reactionary group bent on prevention of human breeding and with it, the voluntary extinction of humanity. To me, it sounds like people are giving up hope because we keep destroying our environment. I know i am a Moderate Conservative and a Christian Deist, but I also believe in environmentalism and I see what VHEMT is doing is basically the worst idea I have ever heard of, perhaps more worst than China's one child policy. We all know what they are going after to achieve that aim and they believe that there is too many people on this planet, believing that we would make every animal on the planet go extinct. The group was founded in 1991 and they tend to believe that as long as humanity survives and breeds, more and mVHEMT: A Cult for Genocide2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I hope you enjoy taking a step back in time!
