How to win at deviantART: Exposed
deviantART is a categories game.
According to deviantART's hq, "deviantART's algorithm for Popular browse results (ie. front page) is known as Fair Exposure. The goal is to maximize the display of the most popular deviations in a variety of topics…with Fair Exposure, the community is exposed to a varied cross-section of deviantART. "
What this boils down to is that certain art categories have inherent ranking advantages and others inherent ranking disadvantages on front page as a means of ensuring that a variety of works from across deviantART are visible on front page and not just that of one category. Sounds pretty good right?
Well let me say before I continue that I do not know deviantART's actual mathematical algorithm for front page ranking. However, I think that anyone who notices the composition of front pages (whether 8 hour or 24, main or by category) and the statistics of the pieces that populate those fronts pages can give you a pretty good guess.

Anyway, let's take a look at how you're supposed to use those features this skin offers.

I recommend you to view this journal on the journal page as there is more space for the journal to be displayed.
For place saving purposes most stuff will be placed in boxes like this.

Journal Skins

Journal skin, styled any way you want! Scrollboxes, colored scrollbars, link/hover effects, etc. are all fair game. :) You provide the graphics yourself. I'm not doing dropdowns though, because I still haven't had a chance to learn them yet...

Elvish-Legacies, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!
Now I can add myself to more groups and reclaim the two I lost, and best of all, go back to using and making journal skins! :iconawwloveplz: :iconcatcherloveplz:
ANYWAY, I guess I'm coming back. Ahahahaha two and a half more weeks of winter break, here I come!
lol I feel like I'm so out of it right now....
Ew, this default skin. I'm still too lazy and miserly to get a premium, blergh. Eh. :shrug:
It's like back when I was a little kid.  Grabby-hands at something, and then give up and sit there.
Anywayyyy um, I guess i'm kinda back? Kinda? Actually, I have no idea. It's winter break, and I've done almost nothing productive for like 2 weeks besides make 2 webpages for my internship.
BTW, I'm a junior in college now, intended double major in Integrative Biology and Computer Science. Woooo.
Sorry for totally d

I've been wanting a premium upgrade for a while. I especially need it because I've been wanting to upload my tons of stock for a while, but I have no time to do it one at a time. >< (I need the bulk uploader.) Plus, I'd like to use journal skins, better searches, and a bunch of other stuff. :)

edit;; I'd love to extend my premium membership... I've gotten hooked on dA and I spend much of my time here looking at art and such. :) Thank you so much for your support! :)

So uh, yeah, I guess I went on a random ~6-month hiatus again. @_@ School tends to do that to me. Gotta finish dat double major... if I'm even able to declare the second one anyway, but that's a whole different story...

Apologies for all the groups I deserted, all the friends I disappeared from, and all that art that hasn't been made. :cry:

But I did make something , and I'm trying to upload it, but apparently dA has changed their uploading system so that your images get put in into Since I filled up more than 5 GB in my but since I'm now no longer upgraded, I'm back down to 2 GB - so I can't upload anything. Frankly, I feel like this is kind of ridiculous... I was using my as just a Dropbox for a while but now I can't upload any new art. What a pain. Now what? ._. dA won't let me upload art? What kind of ridiculous policy is this... 

Anyway, yeah, I'm alive. 

Oh yeah, art.

98% of the art I've been doing lately is all photography, and I've been uploading it to my portfolio (go look if you're curious). Started doing portraits for people too.

I promise I'll finish at least one manip by the end of this summer. 
Actually I don't even know if I can promise that... I'm starting summer classes in a week and a half and it'll be 8 am to 4 pm Monday to Thursday + homework....

Life is crazy. 

How have you guys been? Mah frieeeeeeeeeeeeends.

P.S. Going down to San Diego later tonight to go hang out with my sister, woot. Will be back in a couple of days, though.

I do photo manipulations, photography, and a smattering of simpler digital art. I also do web design (HTML/CSS) and occasionally fractals behind the scenes. The only things I don't really do are traditional art or 3D art or movies. :P
I have 10 years of experience with photo manipulations, 11 years of experience with photography, about a couple years with digital art, 9 years with web design, and 1-2-ish years of experience with fractals.

If you ever want help with anything at all, :note: me or comment and I'll try my best to help. :meow:
