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.

Quick Thoughts on deviantART ...

Quick Thoughts on deviantART ...

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 ...

Be safe and well Jark.

People, please stop posting about Eclipse here, jark has nothing to do with it and they don't work for DA anymore.

Poor Mr Yellow Alien. Still copping blowback from the dumpster fire. Do they not realise you've had no input in 15 years? Likely longer than a lot of them have been alive.

You and the other staff members don't deserve any of the negativity. Have some love.

We're so sorry Spyed and Wix are ruining the site you created, Jark.
