My Bio


◄ The deviantART electricjonny ►


‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌I don't visit this site as much as I used to. ‌ But this was my first experience with social media, back when I joined in 2003, so it means a lot to me on some deeper levels. ‌ My art is mostly photography, but I have also made scripts and CSS styles in the past, and I'm currently really into building things—wooden puzzles, wall hangings, or practical things like speakers. ‌ I spend a lot of time chatting here, and you can find me in devart and seniors (I left those here since technically chatting still exists, even if the staff ignore it, lol.) ‌ I also have my own personal chat room, electronicjonny, and I recently made a room called RecoveringArtists which is designed for people in recovery from addiction (drugs or alcohol or whatever it might be. But due to the stupid policy of removing rooms after no activity for 3 months or whatever, those rooms are no longer here. Again, the staff ignore a lot of what I love about this site.)


◄ The real life electricjonny ►


‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌My real name is Jonathan Spence, but I go by Jon. ‌ I'm currently living in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and work as a cleaner at the well-known restaurant, Zingerman's. ‌ I'm also a person living in recovery from being addicted to alcohol, and have been sober since November 27ᵗʰ, 2016. ‌ I bike everywhere (cars are EXPENSIVE!) and really like electronics and computers and other technical things.

Do What? Yesterday, back in 2016, I had my last drink of alcohol.  That means that today, the 27ᵗʰ of November, I've spent the last two years sober. When you are a part of Alcoholics Anonymous, you can pick up sobriety coins.  Typically done for each of the first twelve months sober, and after that, once every year.  When you pick up a year (or a multiple year) coin, you usually hear people shout “How did you do it?” and very often, “Why did you do it?” For me, the How part is pretty straight forward: I didn't drink any alcohol for these last two years.  But the Why part is much more important and signifi

Happy 4th of July! United States of America 2 | FLAGS i love you

I'm gonna be seeing the fireworks show tonight! What about you? :hug::heart:

Hey, ppgrainbow :)

Erm, I worked today and I work tomorrow, and I simply don't feel any gratitude for today. This is a screenshot of a post I just wrote, on a post by someone you probably remember, lolly.


But I appreciate that you're going to have a good evening, and that you posted this on my page :)

Thank you so much for the compliment! I appreciate it. :hug::heart:

Had to come here because my forum post was taken down but I wanted the chance to respond.

My direct response to your comment on the post:

Forgive me, but not appropriate? In what way is it inappropriate?

All I can do is report, which I have, and make posts about it to spread awareness, as I've done. Staff isn't doing anything which leaves it to the community, meaning those who frequent the site, to do something. Meaning people like me who want better for myself and others. It would be inappropriate to sit idly by and allow someone violating the guidelines to continue violating the guidelines.
