Honestly, that's pretty self-explanatory. But let's elaborate on the why shall we? I've been loading my more recent MyBB designs more actively over the last few months and have been steadily getting more views and faves and just overall traction with my work - which is AWESOME. However, I get the sense after a few months of being more active on this site and seeing other people's posts and interactions that it i hard to have your work taken seriously here if you don't have an aesthetically pleasing profile page. I'm not saying this simply as a person who does not have a customized profile, but as a person who has internalized comments about other people's content and felt immensely guilty for it.

There's literally no reason that someone's art, codes, whatever it may be should be perceived as lesser simply because it's presentation is using deviantART's default layout. That's what deviantART is designed for - it just doesn't make any sense. 

If you're thinking - "dA Eclipse is going to be released and this will all be a moot point, Kat, why are you doing this now of all times?" (1) Because I've only recently been more active on the site, and more importantly (2) There's no telling how long these beta tests will last. While we wait for the Eclipse release to overhaul our browsing experience I would like to have every opportunity to share my work with as many people as possible. 

Also, if you're thinking "You could easily do this yourself". You're not wrong but I'm simply not as familiar with the backend structure of deviantArt and how to edit it. I've read many tutorials and though these are helpful to gain a broader understanding of the inner function of this art-sharing engine, they leave me feeling unprepared to tackle this one my own.

Please note or comment with your recommendations if you know anyone! 


Halfway through making the UCP mobile responsive on Perspective! This really will be the most responsive design I will have made.
Perspective is now compatible with compatible with Account Switcher, Prostats, Threadlog, AND newly compatible with MyAlerts!
You know, I said it was a wrap on my project but I lied I’m still working on it.
New design nearly done! Just the profiles and ucp to go :)

My name is Kat and welcome to my internet-home. I have been coding MyBB for over a decade now if you can believe it, but there are always new things to learn and coding evolves non-stop. When once tables were the norm – then came divs and now flexbox grids and mobile responsiveness are de rigeur. Don’t be afraid to challenge me with new ideas, I love to sink my teeth into them,
A little about me this time. I grew up in a small town in Quebec and my first language is French. I have been living in Montreal now for ten years and I love it. The culture the sights the sounds the movement. It’s all great. But I find myself missing the tranquillity and solitude of my homes, tucked away in the woods.

If you want to know more, please feel free to contact me – I love a good chat!
