Activity - my new home on the internets

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 24, 2012, 5:36 PM
Long time no see! It has been a super-busy few years. Last year especially so, with the huge 9.1 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster. The March 11 event hat trick caused a huge amount of pain throughout Japan, touching and affecting the lives of millions.

As a result of the disaster relief efforts, I was crazy busy last year, especially the months immediately following the huge earthquake and its after-effects. I never really got time to think through a decent web strategy ... until now.

Without further ado, I would like to introduce my deviantART family and friends to

What started out as a cool URL shortener for my personal use on twitter has been transformed into my new home on the internets. This is the one site where I will primarily share my thoughts on various topics and upload content - such as pictures - for sharing.

I hope all is well with everyone around here. Sorry I do not participate like I once did, but life has dramatically changed since those good ole days - days I will always remember with fond memories.

Take a look at when you have an opportunity and please let me know what, if anything, you think of the site. I always love to receive constructive criticism on my projects.

Speaking of which, before I run ...

A few close friends and I are working on a web-related project many deviants might find intriguing. Stay tuned for more information. ;-)




Scott Jarkoff, The Yellow Alien
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.

Current Age: 36
Current Residence: Tokyo, Japan
Operating System: Mac OS X & iOS
MP3 player of choice: iPhone $ver
Favourite cartoon character: *ME* aka The Yellow Alien

really? you're counting the CO-FOUNDER OF DEVIANTART as a dead account? 
inactive-list Featured By Owner May 10, 2018
He has not commented, favourited, or posted anything since around 2015. By all definitions, a dead account, though a famous one.

Are You Still Alive?
CerberusTheTerrible Featured By Owner May 31, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ok since spyed obviously ignored me, I need your help. Or maybe someone else will help when they see this.

But my friend's art has been falsely reported by someone. And today's is just recently.

^ Here's a journal of what's happened today.

And on this one, it happened on the 19th of this month:

Can you or anyone please help? This is totally unfair that you guys are letting these deviants falsely report her art without a proper reason as to why they are reporting them instead of saying it's "sexual".

I feel as if the majority of people commenting don't realize that this guy isn't a mod.

Am i allowed to post a written piece related to one i made on on this site? Already asked them, they permit it, so...
SonAmyFan362 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2017  Professional Writer
If it is really your own work, you shouldn't have a problem, nor should you have anything to worry about.

Someone is threatening to ban me from DeviantArt over one small mistake that I made. I don't wanna be banned on here, please. You've got to stop this person from ruining what makes me who I am on this site. I'm begging you to answer this and help me. 

SonAmyFan362 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2017  Professional Writer
Hi. Can you send me a Note with the information, please? I'm willing to help out.

Can you tell me what happened to CreepypastaNextGen?
She disappeared mysteriously with no answer and she seems to have deactivated or she was banned. Was she banned or did she deactivate on her own?
