The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

I've been spoiled having the "Preview" function on dA posts.   The latest glitch has made it necessary for me to either accurately visualize the code I'm entering (assuming I don't eliminate it altogether), or to be at peace with any goofy errors I might be posting.   'S a bit unsettling.   :O_o:

I thought it was just me that was having issues with that! It definitely is annoying. Sometimes I preview something two or three times before sending, so it's kind of a pain.

Now I just find myself crossing my fingers and hoping for the best! :noes:

Oh, thank gawd I'm not the only one who does that! :phew:

Yeah, this glitch is turning into an interesting study of self-confidence levels... :crazy:

Oh yes indeed! I was an editor for a few years too, so I have that sort of stuff ingrained, I think ^^;

Well, at least you have your employment history as an alibi; I'm just compulsive! :blush:

Actually, I think I've always been this way... It was part of the reason I got the job to begin with!

I don't think it'll ever leave me. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, except when we have glitches like these ;)

Speaking of which, I think it's fixed! :dance:

Yep... and now the search bug is back. It must have something to do with dA's required bug quota or something. ;-)

Indeed. I'm also seeing a glitch with the stats for favorites. They all read "0" whenever I go to someone's deviation.

I guess all the glitches balance themselves out somehow :)

lol, yeah... maybe there has to be a certain number of small glitches present to hold back a great big one! :lol:

Well... more annoying than anything else. Like I said, I got used to being able to preview before hitting "Send", so I normally catch anything weird that I've typed by mistake.

Still, I think I'd rather have this glitch than the one where the search function doesn't catch new artwork in the system! :hmm:

I never previewed anything before dA, but I make such idiotic typos that now I've made a habit of it. Yeah, it's better to have this screw-up than not seeing new art. :nod:

Man, that glitch is so annoying! I use it a lot too. I like to look over what I've written to make sure my grammar is correct. I suppose we could be careless and type badly. . . :shrug: I don't think it's worth it though.

lol.... who knows? It could be therapeutic to just type something out willy-nilly and hit "send", trusting in the Fates to see that it works. Sort of like an exercise in Zen... :lol:
Alptrauma's avatar
AlptraumaHobbyist Traditional Artist
Haha! I've done it before. . . Unfortunately Zen was never my strong point, and I ended up being repetitive in my sentences, and mis-spelling. . . It was a complete disaster. Reeeeeeeeeeeeally ugly sight, I suggest you never try it.

Hm, you're probably right. With my luck, my posts would degenerate into variants of "All work and no play make Jack a dull boy"... :crazy:
