jark.me - 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 jark.me.

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 jark.me 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. ;-)

Cheers!

Scott Jarkoff, The Yellow Alien
Japan
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
Personal Quote: Oderint Dum Metuant

This site fucked up my friend. She just wanted to have a good time here and share her art only to be made fun of and harassed. Managed to make her suicidal even. I don't know what little nostalgia is left here anymore. I don't even know why I joined other than to prevent other users from going through what she did.

Si,tienes razón. :/ 
Aunque insultando no ganás nada.
Además,supongo que Jark no entiende tu idioma.
Si quieres que te entienda,creo que sería mejor si lo escribes en inglés. Así es la vida,amigo. :/

So, you don't allowe the harresment on your website, but you allowe the necrophilia, pedophilia or even a prostitution on your website?

Fuck you.

Maybe, just maybe, you should take more than 30 seconds to research who is actually an administrator here on deviantART.
