Group Abuse: Killing our Communities
Groups! What a great feature on deviantART. They kicked off last year and have been a huge success. Nothing but good has come from the groups system – or has it? I can tell you that right now – under the layer of hype lies a deep, dark problem that's slowly killing our communities, unknown artists, and our ART. I'm going to tell you my own story, then explain.
I'm the founder of a large photography group here on deviantART. We've been using the groups system since the very first day they officially released. At the time of this writing, we have almost 3600 members. We've grown rapidly to become one of the largest and most successful photography groups around. As a founder, it's always interesting to see how your group is doing. It's a lot of fun to look at statistics, new members, submissions, and comments. Until now.
We had an excellent discussion in our group chat debating the following issues. Together, we came up with these issues and decided to raise them to the communit

Free Avatars: Birthday Cake
Our group had a poll, and it was decided that we would make free CAKE avatars to celebrate deviantART's 10th birthday in August 2010. The icons below are the results of last month's challenge.
All of the avatars in this article are 50x50, under 15 kb, and absolutely FREE for anyone to use at deviantART!
Please :+fav: and follow each artist's policies before using anything that isn't yours.
Side note: "The cake is a lie" is a phrase that was seen repeatedly during this challenge. Some people asked what it means and where it originated. It's from the game, Portal. In this game, the character is urged forward with promises of grief counseling and cake. As the player progresses, the main character encounters graffiti on the walls that states, "the cake is a lie."

I do a lot of things, and I'm not really good at that lot of things :P
Photographer (concert, random), traditional artist (pencil, markers, coffee), digital artist.

Current Residence: Enschede
Favourite genre of music: Rock/Indie/Punk/Metal/Screamo/Electro/Drum'n'Bass
Favourite photographer: Peter Hill & Sophie Jarry (concert photography)
That was 6 months ago apparently. Have been on dA once or twice since I wrote that..

Anyway, I just realized (with help of GoldenDruid ) that I had several commissions promised to people. I never finished any of them, I think. I don't work well with things I 'have' to do and tend to put them off until people get really angry >.<

Soo.. if I promised to make/do/draw something for you, remind me. You can lie. I don't remember what I promised anyway, so you can TOTALLY take advantage of me here :D

I didn't get a lot of response on the previous journal, but I guess that's due to inactivity :P

I'll try and do better this time! <3
