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 ...

why is it a journal of 'more active soon' always means never to update again?

This is thoroughly good news, might make me become more active myself. :)

Hey! We've never spoken but i was just wondering what you'd been up to since leaving... Wondering i guess if you'd been off making another community somewhere ;) 
Hope you're well and happy, wether here, or elsewhere. :)

Welcome back, then!  ^^

To be honest, though, I don't like the new DA logo at all...

Was the situation between you and Spyed ever resolved?

It's good to see you back.  I never thought it'd happen, but I'm glad to see it.

Your absence was weird, and it left a strange hole was never filled and a lot of questions that were never answered.  But dA managed to grow and thrive anyway in the intervening years since you've been gone, and I'll be curious to see how your return affects the place.  I can only think it'll be for the better.

I'm sure spyed has noticed this journal by now; you think there's any chance of you two ever sitting down together and trying to fix the bad blood and bury the hatchet?

Welcome back.  It has been too long.  Just saw the announcement on designtaxi via Facebook and my first thought was of you.  As many have already mentioned... ...it doesn't change anything. ;)

Jark, don't know if you remember me but here I am, like yourself after hearing the buzz around the rebrand. I hope they translate the new brand in to an updated site design and user interface. Anyway, it's good to see a journal from you, and to also hear you may be coming back. I haven't used the site in about 6 years now, which is a shame because I loved this place back in the day. I'll hopefully be coming back, sorting out my page (once I can figure out how to navigate this complicated, enormous website!) and hopefully get back in the community. See you around!
