My Bio
I am generally referred to as The Yellow Alien here on deviantART even though my real name is Scott Jarkoff. Since 1990, ten years prior to co-founding deviantART, I have been living in central Japan near Yokohama, the third largest city in this island country.

While I am a co-founder my daily activities label me as the Director, Community Development. I manage and oversee our Help Desk Team, Policy Violation Team, News Team and the Message Network @dministration. The position is effectively that of the one who leads the community in the various directions that it needs to go. Sounds weird, I know, but that is the basic definition. Management, and general community administration, take up a large portion of my time but I also submit product specifications in order to make your suggestions a reality.

Throughout your travels here at deviantART you should pay tribute to matteo, arc and tack for the large amount of help that they gave deviantART in its early days.

A few really quick thoughts: 1) DA's reimagining, rebranding, updated logo, and overall story is fabulous. I will have more to say later, most likely in a longer journal post. 2) I am going to make a concerted effort to be more active in the community again. 3) Need to rebrand my own image here on DA. The current branding is a bit ... dated. It almost feels like I'm coming home after being gone for years ...

What has happened to this website?

I need a drink to even visit this sad place anymore.

o7 Jark, have you weighed in on the recent events of community backlash towards the news of DreamUp?

bryng back scott.

Whoa...this is like a time capsule.

I will always be with you

Makes no difference where your road takes you to

Even if we’re apart

Now we’re joined at the heart

Though our moment may be gone

You and I will still live on

I will always be with you

I’ll be by your side whatever you do

Other memories may fade

But the ones that we made

Are eternal as a star

Now I’m part of who you are

And I’ll be there with you in the sound of your laughter

I’ll bе in the tears you cry

'Cause thе way you and I have touched one another

Doesn’t end with goodbye

I will always be with you

Like a guardian angel constant and true

When you’re lost in the night

(Lost in the night)

And you can’t see the light

(Can't see the light)

My love will see you through

I will always be there

You’ll have me there

I will always be with you
