Hey, it's Kewlio, if you don't know, and I've decided to post on this thing again. zOMG ya rly lol.

Yeah, so first, I'd like to just kind of put out there that I'm working with thriethetiger and his wife Aly to create a new webcomic. All I can draw decently is Kirby, so I'll be providing two characters -- Azure and Serena -- as well as some storyline and such, while he'll be drawing. We've figured out most of three chapters' worth of storyline, and it's looking pretty freaking cool so far. Go check his gallery out for pictures of our characters. You can also read the character sheets for my two characters on my profile -- just as a warning, though, there are some spoilers.

Meanwhile, since I'm advertising stuff already, I'd like to mention that I've been recording some Let's Plays, mostly of MegaZeux games... If you'd like to take a look, check out my YouTube channel here. For those of you who don't know, a Let's Play is a player-commentaried run through a game, wherein the commentary is normally live, but sometimes is recorded afterward. (Mine is live, FYI. :P) Check it out!

Okay, that's all for now.

You've probably all seen, by now, that Guatamala Day post in your Message Centres. Creepy, huh? IlovetheCasualties must be embarrassed beyond belief...

Wikipedia said, before the entry was deleted: "This error was due to a database issue, the journal's ID is the highest that it can be without changing the database."

So, everyone can disregard that journal post, as it's just...blah. Why couldn't it be a more appropriate post? At least, something cooler than some girl ranting about her, uh...personal needs?

Well, anyway... Problem's been fixed, and we can get back to things as usual.

Well, since the Submission Agreement has been revised to something much better, I've decided to unlock all of my previous submissions, AND make a new one. I know that the original reason for locking them up was that jark was gone, and I originally wasn't intending to submit anything else until he was back, but I'm happy with the new SA.

Keep watching on jark, though, as well as bookdiva, justthorne, and everyone else, to see what's going on on that front.

I wouldn't usually point out a particular deviation in my journal, especially after my subscription has run out, but I just want to point out a picture that a friend of mine drew for me.

This is basically a picture of who I would basically call my dream girl. Quite literally, because I've never met this girl, other than in my own head. I wish I could meet a girl just like this, though...

Despite my embargo on deviantART submissions, I will probably post her description as a prose deviation, if I can find it again. I always like to see how different people interpret it.

Anyway, keep reading up on jark, justthorne, and bookdiva for news related to the whole dA situation, including the legal fund, the submission agreement, and more as it comes up.

Subscription Over

Tue Oct 11, 2005, 10:42 AM
To hell with my subscription. I'm tired of all this nonsense on deviantART, so I'm just gonna wait until it's over before posting again. Probably won't bother posting more journals again, either.

So, in case I don't, keep checking out jark, justthorne, and spyed for latest news, and deviot and bookdiva for side-news.

"I reject your reality and substitute my own."

It was said by Mythbuster Adam Savage, and it seems to be realitysquared's motto as well. deviot gets banned for using an (I suppose) unnameable comment referring to Josh. jark shows his views on the subject here.

As if that wasn't enough, jmills74 and icore get banned for commenting in defense of the community. Clearly, the administration is going insane. "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Here are the "traps" (my term) that got the users banned:
deviot - Trap
jmills74 - Trap
icore - Trap

jark's fund raising is going too slowly! C'mon, dig deep into your pockets and help us save the Alien. This isn't to say that you should donate all your money to jark and ignore the Katrina relief effort and all those such things... Check bookdiva's journal for more things you can donate to.

Finally, matteo is getting his day, after jark's reception of the Co-Founder status that matteo deserves just as much. It's October 14th, and the goal is to make grey deviations, or pictures of the grey...uh...bulldog (?) himself. Check this out for more info.

So why is Jark gone anyway?

Sat Sep 10, 2005, 10:19 AM
spyed says:
"If there's one word I'd like to use that might help you understand it would be mutual gridlock. It was a difficult situation. The company felt it needed to do what it did to break the impasse."

azathoth-the-second, one of the wiser people I know, said before:
"spyed wants to introduce hierarchical Art Groups. [...] OTOH, jark wants to introduce a folksonomy. [...] jark was vetoing spyed's pet project. That's why spyed sacked the chap."
(Read the actual journal entry for further detail on his reasoning.)

Do not take this journal entry as the whole and absolute truth, as azathoth-the-second has never been part of the deviantART staff; however, do take it as a possible and logical truth, and let's hope that spyed can tell us what really happened soon.

...OK, so I've kinda gotten used to my subscription, and added a month to it. I will not be adding anything else to my subscription until this whole thing is cleared up. (And anyway, one month on dA is $5, while I've donated $10 to jark, so ha =P)

Return from the Base

Sat Sep 3, 2005, 4:50 PM
*a streak of light falls from the sky; Zero appears through it*

...

*looks in the direction of spyed's journal*

...He finally did something right.

*unlocks his gallery storage unit*

This... This is part of what we needed.

*takes out his Featured Deviation and desktop screencap*

This will be part of my gallery back.

Once we get clear answers on everything, the rest will come back.

Once the legal disputes clear up and the Submission Agreement gets changed, I'll figure out new stuff to add.

I may even consider renewing my subscription.

justthorne and jark congratulate spyed on his "accomplishment". jark also gets co-founder status...which is still greeted by a degree sign. How original. matteo should also receive this status, though...

Keep reading bookdiva's journal, too. Though the top of it now talks more about Katrina, she's still keeping tabs on what's going on.

Anyhow... I have company here, so I'll sign off for now.

Incoming letter from New Hope Resistance Base

Deviants,

Now, as if this whole deviantART thing wasn't enough, the base's main computer has become faulty. Analysis has come to find that it may be that its power supply unit has gone bad, and it will be tested soon.

justthorne has not given us the final result yet. However, I feel that it will come soon.

jark releases part two of deviantART: A Little Story. It's a great read.

bookdiva keeps us informed with latest posts and poems.

Hopefully, this problem of mine will clear up soon. Until then, I'll probably be slow on news.

Keep fighting,

It wasn't enough. It just wasn't enough.

First, they fire jark. Staff start leaving. Deviants start leaving.

spyed watches all this and laughs. He tells us nothing.

justthorne devises a plan to find the truth.

And now, four admins have been "downsized".

Of which, flameturret, wordlesswhisper, grubin, and amolerouth. And from the looks of it, things were bad enough for them already. deviantART has helped them cope with life. Now deviantART has backstabbed them all.

Seriously, justthorne's plan had better come through. Fast. Zero out.

Some news on the Jark front... justthorne's plan to force the truth to surface from the depths has been unfortunately delayed for "blameless reasons". Stay tuned to his journal for more news; it may be delayed, but it hasn't been cancelled, and it most certainly will not.

bookdiva keeps informing us all of the latest news from everyone involved, including deviot's latest journal post about the great things jark has done for us. Keep reading bookdiva's journal for the most up-to-date information on all fronts.

I was thinking... If we make it through this, and "business as usual" makes sense to continue having, I will try to devote myself more to the community. I've noticed that since I started involving myself more, my single deviation in my gallery is getting a lot of exposure. Therefore, it would be good for me. Also, by offering my opinions on deviations and participating a bit more, it would be good for the community. Everyone wins, right?

So, starting on the day where "business as usual" is declared by justthorne, I will spend at least thirty minutes every day concentrated on deviantART. I will make constructive comments on people's deviations, and really get into it.

Should "business as usual" not be declared, I will delete my deviations and terminate communication. No point in visiting a community site without community spirit.

Zero out.

Well, it appears that justthorne has caught lolly's attention on the matters of lingering deviations and the Submission Agreement. Read the latest Community Update; it says that deviations stay on the server for 30 days before deletion, so that if it was from policy violation, it can be discussed and possibly reinstated. Reasonable.

Also, it says that something might be done for the Agreement. Currently, it's pure pwnage; hopefully this can be improved upon.

Anyway, keep reading justthorne's journal for more information about what's going on. The "big day" is tomorrow, remember that.

jark has recently gone through an earthquake. As if getting fired from deviantART wasn't enough, now nature has turned against him. Go visit him, he can use the friends. We're all friends of jark's, right? (Well, most of us...)

bookdiva continues offering her support and opinions. Go, jark's mom, I say!

spyed says...nothing. What a surprise.

Incidentally, as part of justthorne's plan of hiding deviations, I have convinced elitehobo and thriethetiger to follow suit. Good to know I can convince people to show support, I guess.

Finally, I might be posting something in my blog later today. Mostly just an update.

That's all for me. Zero out.

Important Transmission from New Hope Resistance Base

Check this: justthorne has launched his plan to figure out what happened.

Basically, what we want to do is get the middle-class deviants to convince the upper-class deviants to convince staff to make their own investigations. All this while, everyone should put away their deviations for at least a week. The staff will investigate, and on the 19th, each report their own, individual findings through their journals. justthorne will look after the findings, and we'll hear more from him later.

My explanation doesn't do it so much justice, though. Read the actual journal entry to find out exactly what he's planning.

Again, if you haven't, listen to "Open Your Heart". More info in my previous journal post.

Meanwhile, I'm enjoying my best success with my latest deviation, "Insufficient Jark". Four :+fav:s on it so far. Oddly enough, though, I'm getting more pageviews than ever since I put away my other deviations. Perhaps I should participate more, once this ordeal is over. It seems to boost my ratings... Well, food for thought. Ratings are not currently the important thing, but I may as well think about the time when they will be again :P

That's it for me. Zero out.

  • Listening to: Crush 40 - Open Your Heart

Incoming Transmission

Incoming transmission from New Hope Resistance Base

Just thought I'd pass some information along.

This open letter was written nearly a week ago. It makes some excellent points about the current quarrel between us and the administration. Basically, we should stop being MAD, DEMANDING answers, and RAGING against the machine. We should be CONCERNED, REQUESTING answers politely but firmly, and trying to make the machine WORK for us again. I wholeheartedly agree.

This page will give you a list of (currently) 1,009 journals from users that are, in any way, concerned or disheartened by what happend to jark. Just thought I'd pass on the news.

The truth website isn't getting very much action. Still, keep watching it, you never know when some more information will pop up out of nowhere.

Finally, I would like to share with you Crush 40's "Open Your Heart", which most of you know from the game "Sonic Adventure" as the theme song. If you put the first person (I/me) as jark and the second (you) as spyed, it kinda puts this thing into perspective. You can get the song here, but I would suggest that you try and find Crush 40's album, as they shall r0x0rz your :b0x0rz:.

-======-
Thunder, rain, and lightning
Danger, water rising
Clamour, sirens wailing
It's such a bad sign

Shadows of dark creatures
Steel clouds floating in the air
People run for shelter
What's gonna happen to us?

All the steps we take, all the moves we make
All the pain at stake
I see the chaos for everyone
Who are we, what can we do?
You and I are same in the way that
We have our own styles that we won't change
Yours is filled with evil and mine's not
There is no way I can lose

(Can't hold on much longer)
But I will never let go
(I know it's a one way track)
Tell me now how long this'll last
(I'm not gonna think this way)
Nor will I count on others
(Close my eyes and feel it burn)
Now I see what I've gotta do

Open your heart
It's gonna be all right

Ancient city blazing
Shadows keep attacking
Little children crying
Confusion, hopeless anger

I don't know what it can be
But you drive me crazy
All your cunning tricks make me sick
You won't have it your own way

(Can't hold on much longer)
But I will never let go
(I know it's a one way track)
Tell me now how long this'll last
(I'm not gonna think this way)
Nor will I count on others
(Close my eyes and feel it burn)
Now I see what I've gotta do

Open your heart
And you will see

... ... ...

If it won't stop, there will be no future for us
Its heart is tied down by all the hate
Gotta set him free

(I know it's a one way track)
Tell me now how long this'll last
(Close my eyes and feel it burn)
Now I see what I've gotta do

Gotta open your heart, dude

(Can't hold on much longer)
But I will never let go
(I know it's a one way track)
Tell me now how long this'll last
(I'm not gonna think this way)
Nor will I count on others
(Close my eyes and feel it burn)
Now I see what I've gotta do

Open your heart
It's gonna be all right, yeah

Open your heart
Open your heart
Open your heart

On a random note, go visit Strong Bad. Better yet, send him an e-mail. Maybe he'll make fun of it for all to see.

Two words. Watch `justthorne. He's on to something. He'll have info on how to proceed tomorrow.

spyed finally says something. What is disclosed? That he's not telling us anything out of respect. Quite frankly, if he respected us, he would tell us what the hell is going on. He's just covering his own backside.

jark comments on the new llama emote. Yeah. You heard me. Llama.

If you haven't listened to "Open Your Heart", do so. Otherwise, that's all for me. Signing off.

Well, I'm tired of waiting.

If anyone asks, tell them to read the sign.

Well, this is it, the home stretch.

Will spyed react at the last minute? Will jark get his job back just in time?

What will happen a day from now? Deviants will submit yellow deviations. Deviants will submit no deviations. Deviants will put their deviations into storage, or worse yet, delete them. Deviants will be angry. It will not be a happy birthday for deviantART.

Even Zero would know that this is a train wreck about to happen, and I won't be staying for the ride. I'm giving deviantART another 23 hours and 54 minutes to get things on the right track again. Who's with me?
