Time Flies

 It's been a while? I feel bad, in a way. Sometimes I log in here and see numerous notes, and messages. I just don't even know where to begin with all that. So...I figured I should at the very least leave something here to direct people properly.  

But after a while
You realise time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
'Cause time flies

You'll may (or may not) have noticed that all my work is in storage. I don't feel the need to justify why; it should be obvious. Truth be told, I rarely log in here. I do occasionally upload to Flickr and Instagram. I'm also still around on Twitter. I don't really have much of a digital presence these days!

She said luck is what you make it
You just reach out and take it
Now let's dance a while

I still receive notes from people suggesting deviants for Seniority. That's a shame. Looks like there's not much action in that area anymore.  If you have any Community issues, comments, concerns or cheesecake it is probably best to contact Moonbeam13 as sadly, my days of influencing such matters are no more. I still make awesome cheesecake though.

She said nothing ever happens
If you don't make it happen
And if you can't laugh and smile


I think that just about covers it?

And the stars begin to fade...

I don't know if you will see this, and for that I am sorry. I never knew you. I am simi-new to DA, basically I joined when the shit hit the fan. I am sorry that people wronged you, I hear things were better here when you were around. I wish I could travel back in time, and joined this site earlier. I keep wanting to help, I keep wanting to encourage others and bring back what once was. 

Now, they have this whole new site they are trying to push... maybe that will be the end. Maybe all good things must come to an end, but they all have a beginning. Maybe one day all the greats will come back just to spite the evils that have been done here.

Maybe one day, you will once again share your heart with those who miss your presence. Until then, I will try to do my best to encourage others. The past is long and atrocities occurred but we must dust ourselves off and rise above the wrong.

I hope to one day see you on here again,
Anita

I realize this is not your area, and I don't seem to find where to contact Deviant. Deviant sent me an email that I had notifications, to my joint email with other conservative family members who NOW know my ID. So I now have deleted four or five favorites categories that I know would not meet their approval. Please thank Deviant profusely for me. I had set this up so that if I ever get this game book far enough along there are several artists I wanted to approach involving creature and character illustrations. If Deviant sends me another email they can go ahead and delete my page. When I want to know I have some minor feedback responses, I will come to deviant art and look at them without Deviants help - THANK YOU !!!
Since this has absolutely nothing to do with you, would you be a dear and forward this to the #%$%#@^$ person it applies to, or close my page. Whichever works.

deviantART went downhill after you, kozispoon, dxd, godofodd and y2jenn got fired. The cases of art robbery, harassment and pedophilia are still waving on this site not to mention Daniel, who refuse to do his job properly.

I'm somewhat in the same boat.  I actually got halfway done with a long post about what went wrong product wise with DA (avoiding the internal politics altogether for the sake of those I still respect) but even that takes more than I can bother with.

I'm now following you on Instagram and Flickr. I don't have a twitter or Facebook account.

It is really, really sad when hard-core, loyal members feel left out on the site. Too many Deviants I have followed for over a decade have deactivated or simply quit logging in. Groups are disappearing even though requests are still sitting in the queue to request deactivation, so I expect more deactivations to come. Some people have said they dread logging in. It shouldn't be that way :no:

I've heard on the rumor mill that DA doesn't even give out seniority any longer, so I'm not sure what is up with that. There hasn't been any seniors awarded since before you started the forum thread about the future of seniors on DA.

And speaking of cheesecake, I'm still trying to figure out a viable cheesecake without using eggs. I've tried using yogurt but it isn't even close to the same!

A lot of things not happening anymore are a shame.

"I still make awesome cheesecake though."

Cheesecake is all that ever mattered tbh.
