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

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
Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!More Like This
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com
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.^^
