Not really on hiatus - I don't know what that previous bio was about
It's so great to meet themers, skinners and desktop artists in general. People you've missed because DA is - or, rather, WAS - so full of talented people you couldn't catch up fast enough.
So good to know YOU, Allan, through spiraloso's excellent desktop customization compilations. We are an endagered species and we need to stay together.
I would love to comment once again but it'll be a copy-paste of what I've already written in your other poll.
Also, I've written a Message to the Team here to let them know of our situation. Right now I think the Design category needs to be filled up, know what I mean?
I haven't heard from the da-team but it's also been the holidays so I respect that. I don't think I'll ever get a reply however. So that me thinking that the Design category most probably fits for now. Let's see how they like them apples. Or, I don't know.
In all seriousness I don't think branching out from deviantart is any solution - it'll only bring too many situations where someone is unavailable to help or has us in a stronghold - more than dA. Owning the servers and having to pay for a domain.
