So, I'd like to give a big shout out to the wonderful admins!
Thank you!! So much for all you do!
Quick UpdateHey, everyone! I just wanted to let you guys know our rules are changing slightly- we've decided to limit our submissions to one per person per day, since we have such an active community here, and submissions for this group (and subsequently, your notifications in your inbox) can get overwhelming pretty fast. Additionally, we've added a new folder, Tabletop Games, since we've been receiving a handful of submissions for these types of games.
In other news, one of our previous admins, mhairigood has left the team due to personal issues, and needing for care for her terminally ill mother. I just wanted to give a shout out to her for being such a great addition to the team while she was here. She's really going through a lot right now, so it would be appreciated if you could send good thoughts her way.
On a similar note, we are looking for other members who might be interested in being admins. It's pretty simple and an easy way to help out the group, but, for the most part,
DA-Gamers Group RulesPlease be sure to read through these rules, as they not only significantly different from what we have used in the past, but these guidelines are also the foundation for how we run this group. If you have any questions regarding rules, or any inquiries in general, feel free to shoot the group a note!
Submitting A Deviation
Folders: Please submit your piece to the correct folder. Your piece will be accepted faster, and it also creates less work for us admins. If you accidentally submit to the wrong folder, we will decline it, and ask you to resubmit your work to its proper folder. For a list of our gallery folders, click here.
Gallery Organization: We have recently cleaned up our group gallery and have organized folders by alphabetical order, and have also installed subfolders. If you prefer to submit your deviations by manually going into the group gal
FIXED: Issues With Submissions in GalleryEDIT: To my knowledge, all folders are able to accept submissions. Please let us know if you have any other issues or questions. Thanks everyone!
It's come to my attention that none of our members can submit their works right now (which actually includes us admins as well). Thank you to the handful of you who reached out and let me know. I went into our settings for the group, and found the issue, but I'm unable to correct it as it stands right now. This is what it shows me, for those wondering:
As you can see, it's greyed out and my mouse is a little X, as I don't have permission to change it. I went into the permissions, and, essentially, tried to give myself permission to give myself permission, but I don't have permission to do that either. I've contacted the group founder, as she's the only one who can fix this. In the mean time, I've noticed some of you have gone into the group gallery and tried to submit to featured-
Super Group! + Looking for admins.Hello!
Since I've been doing nothing but working, I figured I would finally upgrade us to a Super Group.
I am in need of admins to help me out! If you are interested please SEND ME A NOTE. I am in desperate need of help. Anyone? Please? I'll leave your socks alone.
No excuse.I honestly have no excuse for being absent for so long. My job is time demanding and I hardly get to be on the computer as much as I want to be. I can only offer my deepest apologies.
Net Neutrality (Please Read)You might have to pay 10$ or so extra each month in order to use this website.
Do I have your attention?
Good. Net Neutrality is being attacked. I'm posting this everywhere I can. Please just listen.
Net Neutrality governs the way the internet works. It decides how free we are. Right now, we are VERY free. We have the option to access any site we like without paying premium fees for better connection or even just the ability to SEE the website.
But that could change within a month's time.
The FCC head Ajit Pai has always been against Net Neutrality- for reference, Net Neutrality basically keeps internet providers in check, meaning they can't just create the internet as they want, it has rules. At this point it should be known that Pai has been well known to receive money, millions in "donations", from said internet providers. Mostly Time Warner Cable and Comcast. He even used to work at fucking Verizon. So, for these companies, he is trying to kill Net Neutrality.
Well, he did it. He i
Submissions! + noteHello,
First I would like to apologize for your submissions expiring. I am back now and hopefully that won't happen again. I am ashamed that the group that I love and care for has been neglected by me. I've been gone for too long.. I'm blaming my boyfriend, he should stop hogging the computer all the time! I have a laptop now so hopefully that should allow me to get on more. Work has also been getting in the way of my social life. I work in health care and recently one of my clients that I take care of has been diagnosed with cancer. It has been taking a toll on me and I haven't been wanting to do much of anything.
Once again, I'd like to apologize for not being around as much... Hopefully next paycheck I can get us an upgrade to a super group.
Till next time,
Sincere ApologiesHey guys. I'm Bambu and I'm sort of kind of the guy who runs the place along with some help from our lovely moderators. Now then, I should probably apologize to you.
Recently a LOT (about 80) submissions expired. That's my fault. I was out for two days at first at the hospital and the last three days I've been at a certain university taking, arguably, the most important tests of my life. I was exhausted from all of this, and it genuinely didn't occur to me that I still had to get on dA. So... I sorta let you lads down. My bad.
So! If you submitted something over a week ago and it never got through, that's why. Resubmit now if you like.
Dark Souls Feature Contest Pt. 2!https://www.strawpoll.me/12890779
That is the poll to vote for the NEXT contest if you haven't seen it already. If you wanna see featured artwork of some crazy sh*t from those games, the best dA has to offer, then go ahead and click on that link to choose WHAT game. The theme is popular indie games (and god dammit I forgot to add in OFF)
Now then! Prepare for some Dark Souls artwork I found and was submitted to the group.
I'd just like to say that, before we carry on, this is my personal favorite piece from the litter. Check this guy out- he's ridiculously good and underappreciated. Bryan, assuming you check these notifications... good fokken job, man, seriously. Well done.

Some quick recognition tipsI remember it can be quite tough to gain recognition on DeviantArt when you first start out. It's a massive website with so many features and ways to interact! When I started out, I was lucky to have a friend of mine giving me a little shoutout in their journal, which gained me my first couple of watchers. I'll do the same in this journal for some new Deviants I found that have really cool galleries, and I thought of giving a couple of tips as well on gaining recognition:
~ TIPS ~
Loads of interaction! DeviantArt is considered a social media website as well as an art site, and offers many more tools for interaction, feedback, and commenting than Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr ever will! Use it wisely If you want to receive comments, and have people view your art, you have to put some effort in yourself as well. Comment on other people's artwork, +fav it, +watch those you really like, keep communicating. Try interacting with other new ar

Hello Friends New and Old!Hey gang! This entry's been a long time coming and I've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's just jump in!
First off, to whoever got me the core membership: THANK YOU!! Your kindness was a big factor in my decision to be more active on dA again. That was a wonderful present so much gratitude and hugs. Wow.
NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)
Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy. I've gotten a lot of questions about my work, views, and all sorts of other stuff. Since I've been away for a while, I'm gonna do an FAQ in a week or two to get you guys up to speed. I did want to give you folks a shout-out though since I know there's been an influx with some of my older work making the rounds again. I'm very grateful to have you here.
Now, to my longtime friends here: You're are probably wondering "Where have you been, K-Bo?" Wow. Where to start... Without getting into to
16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.
A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.
I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they

Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!

YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.
Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo
