DeviantART: A Critical Community (Part 1)You may have heard...DeviantART: A Critical Community (Part 1)9 months ago in Other More Like This
From the most novice to the most accomplished, dA is home to artists of all types and skills. This mish-mash of talent, experience, knowledge, and eagerness to learn creates a beautiful opportunity for mentorships between those who are learning and those who are willing to lend their time and patience to a burgeoning new artist or writer. But forming those relationships can be daunting for those looking for help and unfulfilling for those offering that help.
This is the first of a two part article series that aims to address a few key points of miscommunication that seem to be common between those willing to offer critique and constructive commentary and those seeking feedback. You may have heard that the critique community on deviantART "sucks" or "doesn't exist", but I'll humbly beg to disagree. I've been an activ
Japanese grammar for dummies1. Japanese has no plurals.Japanese grammar for dummies5 years ago in Writing More Like This
Quick way to remember: All Japanese has the same plural as Sheep.
And yes, there are still some people out there that get to college and still think the plural of Sheep is
Sheeps. No, the plural of sheep is sheep. The plural of deer is deer.
So Dear, remember that the plurals in Japanese work like deer.
hitsuji ga ippiki, hitsuji ga nihiki, hitsuji ga sanbiki
One sheep, two sheep, three sheep.
2. Japanese is an SOV language.
Subject, Object Verb. So Yoda, as one person put it.
(I am Hitsuji.)
3. Japanese is a contextual language.
English is like trying to pick up the grains of sand on a beach. If you get one subject or object wrong, with the references off wrong, then you're screwed. Even Chinese which has a similar syntax (in a different language grou

You know what I'm talking about, Trolls, thieves, and spam bots. Spam bots are an easy fix.

Let's go ahead and take care of the easier of the three first. If you don't know what a spam bot is, please see this Spam Bot FAQ. These accounts are relatively easy to pick out.

CSS Tricks: Background ImagesToday's CSS Trick will be about using background images in Journal Skins.CSS Tricks: Background Images2 years ago in Journal and Gallery Tutorials More Like This
There are three types of images that are mostly used in journals skins: big background images, seamlessly repeatable patterns and icon/logo-like images.
Images can be used for all elements of a journal: in the header, footer, behind text, next to text etc.. Any journal element has the ability to contain an image
I cannot stress enough that the main objective of a journal is making written content enjoyable to read. It is all about readability and making it as easy for the reader as possible. Very often I come across pretty journal skins, that have a complete lack of readability. In one of my previous CSS Tricks I already mentioned the dangers of text lengths and how to limit the .text width to improve readability.
Problems with using images:
Despite being big an images turns out to be too small for a journalAn image does not repeat seamlesslyText becomes non-re
Let's code! Background PropertiesIntroductionLet's code! Background Properties1 year ago in Journal and Gallery Tutorials More Like This
Custom shapes and images are an integral part of any journal skin. They can include buttons, icons, header backgrounds, dividers, textures - sometimes the whole design is one big, sliced image artwork with a text area so one can rightly call it a journal skin. Other times the custom image usage is low or non-existent, and you wouldn't believe how coders make their skins rock anyway (or because). In this Let's code! I'm going to address the different background properties and their values.

Colon, Semicolons, and Hyphens Trouble often arises when dealing with combining sentences. It's good you're taking a look at this - very good. How many of you have wondered how to use a colon? A Semi-Colon? How about a Hyphen? Well, this piece of literature will keep your head spinning for a while. Not because you are going to be confused, but because there is a rather large amount of information. However, you shouldn't let that stop you from becoming a better writer, right? So, let us continue with the lesson on:Colon, Semicolons, and Hyphens7 years ago in Other More Like This
The main use of a colon is when you want to link a lead-in(a sentence that can stand alone but will be used to bring in two or more primary subjects) with the items(subjects) that will be introduced by the lead-in.
Confused? Well, look at the sentence below:
I ordered many items on the list(Lead-in): tomatoes, chips, b
