DA's New Logo
It's awful. It's not something to "get". It's something to say "oh" about after a convoluted explanation, and even after hearing it, it looks awful. It doesn't even look like a favicon in my browser. It looks like a doodly mistake. It is quite possibly the worst professionally made logo I've ever seen. It looks like a bunch of things that it's not, like a distorted plus sign, or a Z, or an equal sign with a dash through it, making it look like it's opposed to Hulk marriage or something. It doesn't make me think of DA at all. It mostly makes me think "what is this garbage", and the explanation behind it just makes it seems like pretentious garbage. The current DC Entertainment logo is a masterwork compared to this.

There's an Etiquette section!

Indeed there is!
For those of you who responded to a hateful journal posted by an unprofessional group of 17 year old artists:

Authentic Citizenship
Once Again, The Room Fell Away. The prodigious artistic and cultural exchange that we have all committed ourselves to building, to participating in and to sharing with each other every day at deviantART often occurs in RL on the decks of HQ as well. One of the best aspects of being in my position here at deviantART is the privilege to curate salons with artists of every medium and success level imaginable, art appreciators, writers, and educators from all points of light within the deviantART community inviting them to make the trek to HQ for what always manifests as an inspiring, thoughtful, educative, and enlightening dialogue. But sometimes, sometimes, things rise to a whole other level. You suddenly find yourself magically reaching that special deviantART "destination" that is a connection point of art, life, community and communication that has no specific Office # designation. The room falls away…

Hi fourthirteen, man haven't seen you in a while on, just droped by to say hi. Hope you are all right.

Yeah, I'm okay, just kind of got sidetracked as school got started. Long story short, I've had to cut back on a few leisure activities to make time for study and (hopefully) drawing. Chief among these was visiting the E-H forums. Honestly, the place was getting stale to me anyway. I might drop by sometime if I'm bored, but it won't be a daily destination anymore.
