just another journal on eclipse

Sat Mar 9, 2019, 10:01 AM


Things I Like

Bullet; Pink How everything is grouped together: it takes less clicking to get to certain things now!
Bullet; Pink Ease of finding everything with like-items with other like-items!
Bullet; Pink Profile options (not necessarily at 100% yet tho but yay custom box!!!).
Bullet; Pink Theme options and how easy it is to switch between them.
Bullet; Pink The about me area! Super useful! A better way to manage links and stats than the green site!
Bullet; Pink Having certain stats where you use them ie the watchers/groups numbers when you are on your watch page... 
Bullet; Pink Having a profile header image (wtf are the dimensions tho lol?!)
Bullet; Pink I really like 'hearting' comments, the immediate gratification of llama and watchbacks, and the larger previews.
Bullet; Pink The option to go to an extra page and view all your notifications from a specific group in a convenient grid.
Bullet; Pink The way journals are displayed - LOVE IT!
Bullet; Pink ASDGAF LOVE custom backgrounds I can swap out on my deviations!!


Things I Dislike

Bullet; Blue It is still slow - I know it is going to take time, but I hate waiting for my pages to load...
Bullet; Blue I want to customize the locations of widgets more on my profile. I like certain things on certain sides of my profile page...
Bullet; Blue The light theme is just a bit TOO light and the dark a bit TOO dark.
Bullet; Blue Comments get lost - even when featured. They seem jumbled together without any outlines or other ways to distinguish them from the background color...
Bullet; Blue I don't like how the previews cut images up or off - you don't get a good feel for what you are gonna go view that way - it makes me less likely to click to fullview something when it looks like crap as a preview already...
Bullet; Blue Having to go to a different page to mass-delete notifications... Can we not just have that option in the primary watch or feedback window?
Bullet; Blue tapsfinger ... Still waiting on groups to be assimilated...
Bullet; Blue The lack of coding ability - I get we want to be uniform, but I would kill for SUB, SUP, and SMALL again...
Bullet; Blue CANNOT MOBILE... The site HAS to work on my ipad and iphone. I go mobile A LOT. The app is poo too, so something has to give here. 
 

Things I am Missing?? Halp!

Bullet; Pink How do I find more than the default groups when adding a deviation to a group?
Like, did I miss something HUGE? When clicking to add to group in Eclipse, it lists a bunch of groups but they are not the groups I need or even use haha! I can't find a search option like what exists in the green site to search for and find the group I need/want. This needs to be fixed please lol (note I did include this in feedback already, but it is still bugging me XD)

Bullet; Pink How the heccin' do I edit a pre-existing journal in Eclipse?!
I can make new journals all day long, but when I visit a journal that is already made - my profile OR a group I admin in - there are no buttons to edit that I can find. Am I missing something?! I like to edit my journals (a lot) so this is rather annoying... (note I also included this in some feedback too)

Bullet; Pink Seems I have some people unwatched in Eclipse that are watched in green site? Glitch?? Me??
Unsure if this is just a glitch or just me, but I have users populating my watch page who I KNOW I WATCH on green site that show up with a +watch in my watch page??? Why? So I am technically re-watching them? Idk. It is fairly minor since I am still getting their content in my watch page, but it is a little confusing and annoying... (this has NOT been included in feedback yet)

New Bullet; Pink How do I get to a list of all my journals in the first place?
I just don't see a place for them (ie a link to them) but I feel like I found them before in Eclipse... Did it move or am I crazy? I like to update my old journals, and I like to go back and link back to them too... in status' or deviations or new journals or polls... etc.


The dA Team is listening! Are you talking?

I know Eclipse is super new and is a HUGE change from the green site. HOWEVER, the devs ARE LISTENING. If you want change - new features, feature adjustments, things removed or just moved - YOU HAVE TO GIVE THEM CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK.

It doesn't matter if you are a volunteer, senior member, whatever. There are no 'little guys' here - there is only A VOICE. And if you are not part of that voice, then you are missing out on a huge opportunity to help shape and shift Eclipse to be the site we have always wanted and waited for. Eclipse is an immense opportunity for our community. Jump on board and experience it - then send in some constructive feedback.

dA is listening to us. But if you don't tell them what you want and need, they won't know. TEST IT. GIVE FEEDBACK. PLEASE. Do not give in to the fear-mongering - Eclipse is different (it will take some time to get used to), but it isn't an unholy mess unworthy of your time. rainbow heart 2

refocusing + comm closures

Sat Mar 2, 2019, 3:30 PM


Re-Focusing my Art and Time

March is the LAST MONTH to commission me. Commissions will CLOSE for an undetermined amount of time on March 15th to everyone except my Patrons! I plan to focus on my Patreon full time starting in April with a new set of rewards for my Patrons (announced today on Discord) at that time...

With that said, as of today, I will no longer be participating in MYOs and MYO events, DTA events, or gifts / ATs / OTAs that are not point/$$ offers. I am going to finish the last of my MYOs, trades, and whatnots in March and be done, all so I can focus on Patreon in April+ ...

The ONE exception to that is that I will strive to do one or two pieces of art FOR ME each month plus work on my Closed and Open Species. I think that is very important that I am able to have time for my own personal art and creations too. :3

thank you

Mon Feb 11, 2019, 10:04 AM


A couple of things...


:one: 
Thanks to the people who are dropping me love with the #showyourheart prompts :huggle: Super sweet of you and I love seeing the notifications! You are too kind, really ;3;

:two: 
Thanks to everyone who helped me out on my journal about TOS stuff for adopts and closed species. I did alter the AmbrivanSociety rules/TOS to reflect the great advice I was given from both that journal and a new friend :3 I hope members will be pleasantly surprised. It is retroactive - applying to all current adopts regardless of adopt status!

:three: 
I just like the number 3 XD
So here we are...

Lily Thank you

:iconambrivansociety: :iconambrivansociety: :iconambrivansociety: 

This is a super important discussion.

Your feedback is not only appreciated but needed!



Typical Adopt Owner Rights
In any species (or most any species, open to closed), you don't own the adopt as you purchase them. If you leave the species, get blocked/kicked, etc, the adopt owner is expected to make physical changes to their character to keep them or to simply give them back as-is to possibly be rehomed OR be retired.

What you own when you adopt into a species is the same as if you had bought any artwork in a store and brought it home: you own the right to personal viewing/use of that artwork --- UNLESS the artist who made the adopt says otherwise or you made the adopt (like a MYO). That is why the species owner and artist of any adopt can require the above mentioned changes and get away with it.


Adopt Owner Rights at AmbrivanSociety 
Currently, our rules are found here: Ambrivans are an Open Original Species!

Basically, the same goes here as in other species. I just spell it out word for word because I don't want anyone getting something they didn't bargain for. However, we still have that happen - case-in-point - I just had dealings with a former member who, after some discussion, did abide by the rules they agreed to when adopting the Ambaran OC, and we went our separate ways happily thankfully. But this is not always the case...


My Concern and Hope for the Future
I am concerned because I have already had one issue with the rules as-is: my intent has never been to harm anyone, hurt feelings, or deceive anyone. But apparently even when the rules are linked everywhere and in plain sight, it is going to happen. 

My HOPE is for the members here (and in other species) to come here and voice their concerns as adoptive parents so, at the very least, I can make changes here that show a support for the community at large and produce an artist-buyer contract for adopts that is friendly and not so jarring. And then to carry these changes into the future with other adopts and species I make (and hopefully encourage others to follow suit).


So please fire away with your thoughts on adopt ownership, leaving a species with your characters (in any capacity), copyright laws (review copyright.gov for a baseline reference), and anything else you can think of or that comes to mind when reading our adopt rules for AmbrivanSociety

on blast: hoshi-fawns + fawn myos uft

Mon Jan 21, 2019, 6:32 AM


Star! Artists' Aware PSA on Yami/Ceph Star! 


KEEP YOUR WHITE KNIGHTS TO YOURSELF. LEAVE MY THERAPY TO ME. I WILL JUST DELETE OR HIDE YOURS AND THEIR SHITTY COMMENTS. AND IF IT CONTINUES AND I CAN PROVE IT, I WILL REPORT YOU FOR EVADING MY BLOCK.



DISCLAIMER
I don't normally post this sort of thing, but writing is therapeutic for me, so since I am going to be taking the time to write it all out, I will also share it so people don't offer on my fawn/myos without important knowledge of this cs and group of admins of the cs.


ON JAN 20, 2019
I left the Hoshi-Fawn CS and have zero intention of going back. Their admin team mocked me and harassed me for asking a question and asking if it was going to be answered. Said I "broke the rules" and that it was "disrespectful to Ceph (the species founder)" to ask the questions.

First of all, their rules I was operating under before Ceph and the admins edited them after the fact (screencapped after one of the mods harassing me about breaking the rules by asking a question saying I didn't know what the rules were - of course me, the rules-lawyer, had to go double-check and re-review them - I was not breaking any rules):
Rules 1 by iLantiis  Rules 2 by iLantiis

At no point in there does it say you can't ask the admins questions - it actually says and implies quite the opposite! Nor does it restrict question content or location in the server. It DOES however state to NOT SPAM THE CHATs which is partially what my question covered since myself and two others were being overwhelmed with all of Ceph's @/everyone pings for her own personal non-hoshi server stuff almost daily (sometimes multiple times a day).

Well, right off, to answer the three of us, Ceph states they can do whatever the want because it is their server:

I will tell you now that put me right off. I have asked this question in countless servers before because I have anxiety with notifications (among other things) on my phone. In every other server, admins were nice and helpful. And this 'I can do whatever I want' is how we start out here. But I wanted to give the benefit of the doubt so asked again if we were going to discuss the issue or not. One of the admins came back and barked about Ceph being in charge, but Ceph was online, so I asked again and included a question on whether or not this was a dictatorship - a valid question as if it is going to operate that way, there is no point in asking the question anymore and I would just have to turn notifications off for that Discord server. I wasn't rude, disrespectful, or hateful - I asked a freaking question.

Well the admins went nuts and started harassing me about the rules (noted above) and when I mentioned I had anxiety and was having a problem then and there, they dismissed me and my medical issues by stating -I do too and am fine with the pings so what-. WTF. Notable point here is that not every mental health issue is the same, affects people the same, is dealt with the same, and reacts the same in similar circumstances. That was not just hurtful to me but was incredibly callous and disrespectful if not outright hateful and totally lacking empathy. And it wasn't just ONE admin that did that either - it was FOUR OF THEM including Ceph that ganged up on me for my mental health issues all at once!!!

I suck it up and backtrack because another member has stated something that would work alright as a solution but the admins have completely ignored the comment, suggestion, and member entirely. So I point it out and everyone acts like I am breaking even more rules for it. It is fricking ridiculous!

So then the "discussion" is closed by several admins but the question is never answered despite a valid solution being posted a couple times now. So I ask if I will get an answer and Ceph replies again finally that they will try to adjust their pinging behavior -- EDIT a member says Ceph was mistaken and that the Naughty Star is for NSFW channel not a punishment label:
Naughty star and asking for an answer by iLantiis

So, I take it to Ceph via PM about the naughty star thing because that is some next level shit in my book as everyone can see that and make judgements against you for it in the server if they are punishing you like that, and I had not done ANYTHING WRONG to deserve a punishment label:
Naughty star and others still continuing convo by iLantiis

IN ADDITION, as I waited for a response from Ceph, the conversation in the server continued about their pings and how they ARE EXCESSIVE. NOT A DAMN ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE - there were like 4 or 5 - WERE ADMONISHED, OR OTHERWISE TOLD TO STOP BECAUSE IT WAS AGAINST THE RULES. NOT ONE.

I WAS THE ONLY ONE TARGETED OUT OF THE ORIGINAL 3 COMMENTERS AND THE GROUP TALKING ABOUT IT AFTER THE ADMINS SAID NO MORE TALKING ABOUT IT OR YOU WOULD GET IN TROUBLE.

SO Ceph finally got back with me and QUOTED A NEW PREVIOUSLY NON-EXISTENT RULE as to why I was 'in trouble.' I have it screencapped and you can see in the first set of screencaps on the rules that the particular bullet they are quoting IS NOT THERE. I was literally being punished for a rule they made up after the fact for the sole purpose of justifying their unjust targeting of me.
The NEW made up rule after the fact by iLantiis

We all know what happens when I get fucked over while in distress. My message back is completely shitty.
My shitty response by iLantiis

SHITTY BUT TRUE. At any rate, I told a couple of friends what happened and they are (WERE) part of the Hoshi CS and went to go look and see for themselves what the hell was going on. When commenting on the Hoshi dA group to find out how to trade/sell their MYO and why, Ceph has elected to be a liar:

Mistreated rules and admins by asking a question? by iLantiis

According to the rules NOW, it is mistreating admins and disrespecting the rules if you ask questions of the admins actions / words as they changed them to reflect their dictatorship status of a CS... Just to be clear, when I asked my question, said rule DID NOT EXIST. They created it after the fact to unjustly punish one of their own members for no damn reason...


Star! Star! Star! Star! Star! Star! Star! 
Now onto the Fawn and MYOs I have UFT

If you read all that and still want to be part of their Closed Species, be my guest - I sure as shit want nothing to do with that circus and its ringmaster! I have TWO MYOs and one adopted Fawn that are up for grabs (I am keeping the adopted fawn with the blessing of the artist and altering the design to make her a non-hoshi OC).


UNCOMMON and COMMON MYOs
I have proof of purchase for you in screencaps.
Accepting anything under $4/400pts to include trades and art.

BOTH MYOS ARE SPOKEN FOR 1/21/19!

hello tiny updates, hello

Sat Jan 19, 2019, 6:42 AM


quickie updates on what I am working on...

I have one more commission to finish before I go back to personal stuff. PandanaLove 's chibi bundle should be done in a day or two - but until those sweet babs are done, that is all I will be working on.

Outside of Pandi's comm, I will have some AmbrivanSociety adopts coming, a mascot attempt for the Dergins group ( mascot contest ends in Feb ;3; ), a MistressDoodles MYO (a master yo - due in Mar!), and numerous items exclusive to Patreon. I still have a few other items that need tackling (namely The-Gem-Hoard 's events, Pakkeli-Cluster 's MYOs (2 omg!), and a MYO for Archanes ...)

Of course, at any point you want me to hop to it, come commission me! XOXOXO


THE PAST WEEK OR SO...

It has been ROUGH.

I have been sick so everything has slowed to a crawl. Emma got sick at the same time too (bounced back faster than me tho), so that really slowed me down that much more. Emma has another project coming up that requires parental involvement in a bigger way than usual which is stressing me out which is making my illness worse which is slowing me down yet still... UGH. Things are still moving along at a pretty good pace - just not as peppy and quick as usual.

With all that said, I am going to be pouring my energy into my child, commissions and Patreon. If you NEED me, you will have to email or note/PM me or tag me. I will largely not be viewing anything not directly aimed at me - I will be deleting the bulk of my notifications instead of browsing thru them like I usually do for the time being...

XOXOXO Love you all!

How to Participate in the Prompts

These are all REACTIONARY prompts meaning you show, in some way, your OC(s) reacting to the information in the prompt(s). You can do every prompt or none ... and anything in-between! These are just for fun, and the best of the best will earn rights to create special MYOs with rare or one-of-a-kind traits/pets!

HOW AND WHERE
RP: Come to the Discord to RP with your OCs and interact with us there!
dA: Submit an artwork (at least half body + color) or lit piece (250+ words)!

Welcome to the 2019 story arc!
Open to all of Ambaran: Ambrivans, Seresans and Haalomans!




Prompt 4: The Dark Tendrils that Reach for Us...

"The trees and land are starting to darken. What are those tendrils of darkness that stretch out to touch us? Steer clear of the patches of sickness that infest the land! Is the air truly the only safe place? Yet even now, the tendrils reach skyward, seeking to clip our wings... They delve deep searching bury the merpeople of the seas... And they crisscross the land, blackening everything they touch. The Ambrivan Royals are up in arms about this now! But what do we do?!"

--- Suni ---




Prompt 3: The Sickness that Spreads...

"More and more now fall into the 'black sickness' as the Ambrivan Royals are calling it. It spreads with every movement, every touch. Will it come for us, the angels of the air? Will it taint the amber waters of our beautiful and lively world? They seem so trusting of each other though, so capable of being this way and living their lives as though all is well. Am I the only worried one? Why has this sickness chosen now to start spreading? Surely I am not the only one to feel the wind: something is coming..."

--- Suni ---
OPEN: Cursed Ambrivan - Sew'n'Spell (Female) by iLantiis  CLOSED: Cursed Ambrivan - Lashing Out (Male) by iLantiis



Prompt 2: The Darkness in the Land...

"I saw it today, the story my leaders told is true - I saw it with my own eyes! The darkness is seeping up into the land... welling up like a geyser about to explode... patches of darkness everywhere as if something were trying to break through! I am afraid, afraid of the land... so to the air I take but my wings grow weary... Where will we go? What can we do? Do we dare touch it? The scientists are alarmed now. The landfolk and waterfolk are in a state of disarray... What darkness is this and to whom does it come for?"

--- Suni ---



Prompt 1: A Trembling in the Wind...

"I touched a tree the other day, a great big one, big as can be!! It trembled under me though my weight is nothing to such a giant being... What could make the tree tremble so? So to the air I took and dove up and down, and the breeze shook beneath my wings as though the very fabric of the sky would tear apart... How can this be? Flying overhead I gazed down and the great waters rippled where no disturbance could be found. Even the oceans shudder...

What, I wonder, comes this way?
What does our precious world know that we have yet to learn about?"

--- Suni ---

some rando title here

Sun Jan 6, 2019, 6:28 AM


I am super bad a titles...



my social media presence...

I can't figure out what to give up. So I am going to prioritize and attempt to use technology to crosspost easier. Posterbirb is downloaded and from home I can crosspost nice and easy with it. If you want to know where to find me online, click here. That is the most complete list. Top priority is my website and Patreon. Also, ALL art will go to Patreon while only finished non-exclusive SFW Patreon pieces will go to the rest in some rando order that I have yet to decide on... Patreon is and will remain my #1 focus. Period.


character trades...

I don't do them. Don't ask. I have gotten a couple DMs in Discord about some, especially my Boozeshark. Not gonna happen. I have traded TWICE in my life and regret both. I don't regret what I received in the trade (I love my characters!), but I miss the characters I traded away and worked so hard on. So I don't trade anymore - once they are mine, they stay mine. And yes, I have a hoarding problem, there is no way I will ever be able to draw them all even once, and the amount of social circles I am in for various characters and species is daunting... but they are still my babies.


Current List of Art I am Working on:

Patreon Monthly ACEO Reward
xCrystal-Phoenix 's Commission
MeganEliMoon BoP ACEO Trade
PandanaLove 's Commission
Cursed Ambrivan Adopts
Ran-Nakai References
Finish Dragonian based on a Spider

Yes, basically in that order.
I expect the ACEO to be done tonight (Sunday 1/6) unless something happens at home.

happy holidays - merry christmas

Mon Dec 24, 2018, 6:36 AM


★ may the holiday bring you cheer ♥

There is not a lot left to say on my part. I wish each and every one of you artistic badasses a wonderful end to 2018 and an explosive and fantastic start to 2019! Some of what I have to say here is also in my blog entry on my website, but there is some new content too...

2018
What a run! I started doing next to no art and then exploded towards the end with more art than I shake a stick at! I started my Patreon, which I am sure some of you are sick of hearing about, but I really want (need) this to work, so you will continue to hear about it as time flies by us... I found a new love I didn't know I had for traditional art, and most of my my media is traditional now. I still enjoy doing digital art and don't foresee that stopping anytime soon, but expect to continue seeing larger amounts of traditional art from me.

I really think at the start of 2018 that I started in a bad place and that is why I nearly quit art altogether. I look back now and can't place why, when, or even how that happened, but I am so glad I am still doing art today! I am also thankful for the blessings 2018 brought to me which allowed me to help my fellow artists out - artists helping artists is truly a goal we should all work towards in the upcoming 2019...

2019
The new year will see my delve into NSFW art trials. I have never done NSFW and am not confident at all with this. I feel like I made good progress on anatomy and posing in 2018 to tackle this hurdle, and I want to welcome all 18+ friends and followers to join me at any tier on my Patreon to get the discord reward of my cursing my NSFW art trials LOL. I have made the decision to ONLY post my NSFW works to Patreon (and the discord associated with my Patreon). You MUST be a patron of me to have access to the next degree of naughty...

2019 will also see me publish a coloring book - not a children's coloring but but one that children could color if they wanted anyways (PG - PG-13). I am going to crack down on this. Scenes, backgrounds, better/more stable lines - I am going to make 2019 my damn year and do something that I have dreamed of for over 10+ years and never gotten around to! No more procrastinating on my dream. And with that said, all patrons of mine will get the coloring book FREE!

I am also really going to crack down on my original species (closed and otherwise) and other neglected OCs. New reference sheets, RPing with friends, and just really develop the hell out of some of my characters. I also really want to finish my DnD presentation to you all and really give you something you can use in your own campaigns.

I am really excited for the new year!
I am excited and happy with how 2018 went for me.
Stay fabulous everyone!

✦ HAPPY NEW YEAR ✦

XOXOXO

Birthday was great!

Thank you all for the birthday wishes, journal features, GIFs (lol), videos, and whatnots! Some of you are clearly crazy, but I love you! My birthday ended up being pretty good - I got my daughter back that evening and we talked the whooooole way home (a 2 hour drive lol) - and if you have ever tried to hold a 2-hour convo with a 5yo, you know that I am somewhat batty and crazy today! LOL At the end of the night, my daughter "wrote" me a birthday song and sang it for around 20 minutes straight. It was adorably awful and sweet :heart:


Upcoming Surgery

I have a surgery coming up this Wednesday. I will be out Wednesday and Thursday. Hopefully not longer. It is in-and-out they say - easy-peasy - and I should be home same day with some meds and a fresh outlook on life. HA! Fresh outlook XD At any rate, I fully expect to go panic mode sometime tomorrow about it, so maybe don't expect anything from me Tuesday through Thursday lol


Saw my Nutritionist

Went back to the nutritionist, and we have decided to keep me on the Low-FODMAP diet. While it hasn't been "night-and-day" differences in my condition, it has helped enough to make my quality of life a little better which is more than enough reason to make the full lifestyle change to Low-FODMAP. Of course I can eat FODMAPs, but I will be picky with my battles as they leave me feeling pretty shitty lol (I many a funny.)

FIND ME ONLINE!

Well, that was easy LOL

I love how they streamlined the submission process. Simple click-and-go buttons to determine your deviation type instead of those gawdawful lists that are nested upon nested upon nested *blargh*

Basically having to select anything for your deviation via the submission process is easier. The downside is the coding you used to be able to do in the description is gone. No code for us... Very sad day. Let us all have a moment of silence for our loss...

Okay now that that's over with, the deviation submission process looks almost unfinished in that some of it still operates like the old version. So I am not sure if the new splash of paint they put on it is supposed to dazzle my ass or they have more updates in store for us, but I am excited to find out. I really expect more whammy than what is currently put out there for Eclipse - the rest of it is so different from the old version that coming across something that looks halfway is disappointing.

My overall thoughts so far on Eclipse...

I love:

  • the layout and design
  • the theme options - seamless switch is a bonus!
  • how streamlined and usable it is: easy access and useful menus over the old version, things put in plain sight, like-items grouped with like-items, and fast!! Pretty damn zippy even on this crusty pc I'm on....
  • an actual real live commission / sales area!!!! Hello useful AF!
  • the rating of deviations. That is just cool, and I hope will become very useful!
  • the easy click and auto-arrange of deviations!! YAS!!!
  • ease of managing watchlists right from the notification area

I like... maybe just ok with:

  • the lack of containment: everything kinda spills out in either theme - would be nice to have comments (for one) more contained so it is easier to see where one ends and the other begins...
  • the emote thinger: yeah they pop right up, but not being able to add multiple at once is a little bothersome... I really hate having to reopen and search again for that perfect emote.
  • our status crap is showed to everyone... I don't want everyone to know my stats crap - can we hide that again please???
  • the cover image is a great idea but dang... can we please move it / center it ourselves as basically every deviation I have ends up as a crotch shot! ;w;
  • dealing with lots of deviations in your notifications is a bit clunky... what happened to select all?! and DELETING a ton at once?? I mean yeah it IS possible but holy crap you got to load a ton of stuff to select all and then remove it...

I am quite a bit more bothered with:

  • the lack of coding across the board... WTF dA!? I crie bc I cannot center... ;3;
  • the lack of profile customization... You gotta let us move stuff around if you won't let us code otherwise what's the point of buying core?!
  • THUMBCODES! Bring back thumbcodes! *bangsgavel*
  • the icons are warped... do not change the size... BAD DA *slaps*

Looking forward to...

  • the other areas of the site being finished enough for us to play on: groups, forums, etc
  • when long menus scroll correctly LOL ... CMON DA SCROLL WITH ME!

OPEN OTA Wonderling 0004

So the easy-add for images goes the same for journals as in status updates but also comes with some swanky formatting options to the journal layout. Same highlight and select formatting options (plus some extras not available in status updates) available which is sweet!

The easy-add tho is JUST for your own gallery - you can grab basically anything there and they seem to have fixed the nested folders things I was barking about the other day. Or maybe not and I am dumb... idk lol

HOWEVER I AM DISMAYED

I cannot figure out how to do the thumbcode to put other deviant's deviantions into my junk!!!

Like I can do this: http://fav.me/dcryvy2 via the share option and copy clicky... But I cannot find a THUMBCODE IMMA DIE

Ananas- A Pakkeli NPC

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, if you have it in your collections / favorites OR know the name of the deviation you are wanting, you CAN search for it, hopefully find it, and then click it to get it into your journal, status update, comment, whatever.

I miss thumbcodes....

This is by far the most disappointing thing I have found js. Also huge image option is HUGE! And lack of customization - I miss my journal skin... ;3;

Also is it weird I prefer the light theme? All you harping about the dark theme being the only good thing, and I'm here like NAAAAAAAAAAAAH, light theme ftw!

THUS ENDS MY OPINION FOR THE DAY. Also dA, WHY TF CAN'T I CENTER MY DAMN TEXT!?

Am I dumb or is this not a thing anymore??

<div align="center">center me!</div><hr><h1>OMG</h1><hr><hr><b>THE END</b>

LF Dainty!!

Sat Nov 3, 2018, 7:36 AM


:icondarling-dainties: :icondarling-dainties: :icondarling-dainties:
I am looking to adopt a Dainty BUT they go so fast (the adopts and the MYOs) that I can't catch them in time :/ So it has come to this. If you have a MYO slot for a Dainty or a Dainty you are wanting to part with, I have money! I cannot swap/trade as I do not yet have a Dainty lol I am also unwilling to part with any of my OCs (CS or otherwise). I do have two CS you can request MYOs for if you like, but honestly I'd just like to pay what the Dainty is worth and be done.

Preferences (in order desired)
MYO SLOT DAINTY
Pre-MADE DAINTY
MYO SLOT CROSSBREED

i want to be giving and festive

Mon Oct 22, 2018, 8:18 AM


seems weird, but it is true

So for the 2018 holiday season, I am wanting to do some ACEOs for other people. I get to decide WHO but you get to make my list of deviants to choose from! There is no guarantee I will do an ACEO for someone on the list, but I will only be selecting characters to do ACEOs on from the list made by all of you.

ACEO PRIZE Velvet and Bijon by iLantiis  ACEO for Stefbani 2018-2 by iLantiis

RULES
You cannot suggest yourself.
You can suggest only ONE deviant and must tag them please! COMMENT HERE
You must include 1 or 2 mostly humanoid OCs of THEIRS for me to choose from.


IF YOU ARE TAGGED, you can comment NO if you don't want to be on the list and possibly have an ACEO done of your OC - alternately, if you dislike the OCs selected, you can comment different OCs for me to choose from.


ACEO 2017-12b by iLantiis  ACEO: Sakuya by iLantiis  ACEO: Locsa by iLantiis


If you have questions, please ask!
This is really my way of doing something nice for someone else and kind of roping other people into it lol


TIMELINE AND MAILINGS
ACEOs that get done will be done between now and 2019. They are mailable if the recipient is cool with shooting me their RL name and address, and sometime in January 2019, I will do a mass-mailing (or mini-mailing depending on how many deviants get suggested and how many ACEOs I actually finish). I will keep unmailed ACEOs in my hoard lol I will not mail an ACEO with someone else's OCs to anyone but the OC owner ;3

a second kitty raffle yas!!

VelenieAdopts has hit 100 watchers! A new amazing raffle has emerged!! [OPEN] 100 watchers Giveaway/Raffle Go and check it out!!


health news

This new diet (Low FODMAP) I am on is working pretty good - it isn't perfect but is working as well if not better than my medication (I am actually OFF my gut meds right now). I really miss pizza tho!!! Anyone know of any good gluten-free, tomato-free, garlic-free, mostly veggie-free pizza options I can try??? Seems like such a tall order!!! Also tis the season for my Raynaud's to start acting up ;3; I am super not excited about that - gloves are already out just to drive my car so my hands don't break out too bad touching the cold steering wheel. Winter seems to be coming on strong already. I am not excited - give me back summer!


working on...

I finished my trades with Kenly. Next up is an ACEO for the grand prize winner of the Pakkeli-Cluster raffle AND the next Wonderling! The next Wonderling is.... DARK! The Widower will be done sometime this week, and I am super excited about the palette I picked for her! If all goes well and I am approved, I will be making a Dextroluma too! Huzzah for a male MYO!
