Harassment: A Survival GuideIt's no secret that the members of deviantART are an opinionated bunch! For good or ill, there is always plenty to say about art that speaks to them. This is great, yet amidst those opinions you're bound to get reactions that are nothing more than word pollution or troll bait. How many of you have logged into deviantART and been faced with this problem?More Like This
We've all seen it, been a victim of it, or at least heard about it: Folk out in the digital world living for nothing more than the joy of ruffling peoples' feathers. Well not to worry dear reader, because I've compiled a survivor's guide on how to slay the beast of text pollution: le trolls!
Identify The Problem!
Being the level-headed fantastical artist that you are, when it comes to outrageous claims and aggravating comments regarding your work it seems like common sense for you to set the record straight and reply to these virtual text hoodlums. I
PE: Deviant Street Books-Inspirational linksFirst it was film, darkroom, paper. Then it became pixels, software, screen. And for some paper too.More Like This
A big thanks to those who decided to let us enjoy their pictures in paper and get the feel of the real thing.
It needs time, devotion and trust to set a street photo book of your own. Let's see who did it!

HAPHAZARD ANTHROPOLOGY in short - By Simon Becker from 30,64 €
I finally got around to putting together a new book. And because it turned out kind of big and rather expensive, I thought I'd add a smaller, reduced "pocket" version (64 frames instead of ~100 in the "big" version). They are both a little more sophisticated and imo "richer" than my p
Just a few thoughts.I know the lamest attention-calling "I'm leaving DA forever" is a well known issue here, so I'm not going into details.More Like This
Well, if for X reason you'll be leaving this place... why don't you just fucking deactivate your friggin' account and leave the place for good instead of writing idiotic drama journals?
I used to be a bit of a dramaqueen before and I've had my issues with DA due to several reasons (their "relaxed" politics concerning tracing, pornography, hypocrisy, among many others), but somehow I've managed to cope with all of them and decided to stay here, whether for good or bad. I put my shit together, improved my art, worked hard on my projects and decided to have fun, whilst leaving everything behind. Or at least making my effort.
Friends came and went, right. I had my dramas and wars too. But I'm still here, and I'm proud of that, in spite this year I had to kick out of my life a lot of people mostly because they were false or betrayed me (I'm very non forgiving in that aspec
Meaning of 555+I always type 555+ behind some sentences and there're someone asking me what does its mean.More Like This
Before this I didn't realize that all foreigner don't know what its mean. Because I always use it, so I didn't know and answer them with the wrong answer.
Sorry for that guy. =w="
"555+" is symbol shorten from Ha Ha Ha+
In Thai language the number five(5) is pronounce as "Ha", so sometime we use "5" as Ha: a laugh sound.
In conclusion "555+" equals LOL. If you see me use 555+ again it mean LOL. I will try to use LOL on this site instead of 555+ from now on.^^
What is Anthro?Too many people has the wrong idea about what does "Anthro" mean... even before deviantART created a whole gallery devoted to this special kind of art, there are still too many doubts about this category, and maybe that explains many of the mistakes when uploading pictures, images or drawings to our section.More Like This
Even when I was still not the Anthro Gallery Director , I tried to explain this concept in a journal entry but couldn't manage to make it clear, and now I think it's the perfect chance for a new attempt. ^___^ To start with, let's take a look at two definitions that may help us.
Anthro: a synonym for anthropomorphism in the furry fandom.
Anthropomorphism is the attribution of uniquely human characteristics and qualities to nonhuman beings, inanimate objects, or natural or supernatural phenomena (...)

Okay, so I'm going to tell you something that damned near every member of this site needs to hear: You aren't special. Stop acting like it, and stop acting so goddamned entitled. Whether it's in your own indulgent navel-gazing "art" or the amount of vitriol you spew, you're all acting pretty damn self-important these days and it's starting to border on pathological.
So the site changed usersymbols to an ugly mess and you don't like it. What do you do? Do you keep using the site to tell everyone how evil said site is? Do you do that while keeping your prints available for purchase, knowing that in the off chance some idiot buys one, your revenue might go toward paying for these developments? No. Jesus Christ, just, no. What you do, see, is you stop using the site, period if you think it's lost its soul and it's so money-hungry that you just can't stand to be associated with it.
