Trek Groups on DA
For your reference and mine, here are the groups that I know of on Deviant Art that collect Star Trek fanart.  Please let me know if I've left any out. Also -- [pet peeve mode] If you're a founder of one of these groups without an icon -- I will MAKE one for you and send directions on how to POST it. Right now. As we speak. Note me.  Let's clean this up, people.

3d Categories Reconsidered
Following the vigorous debate, the moderator of the 3d group has proposed revising the gallery structure.  To read more you can go here: http://cymae.deviantart.com/journal/Proposed-Changes-to-3D-Category-290339919 I find that I am a lot less interested now that I have found out that since my work is fan art it is not supposed to go in the 3d category at all.
Vote Now on Splitting the 3D Category
To those of you who followed the comments on my previous journal on the Poser/DAZ Studio vs. 3d modellers conflict, there seems to be a move afoot to subdivide DA's 3d modelling category. I support this move.  On the basis of my discussions with 3d modellers, I feel that creating a new category that would separate art created with the two different types of programs would do a lot to ease tensions.  After heated back and forths in blogs, many posts that I've seen from the modellers wind up saying that their real problem with Poser/Daz Studio art is that they don't want to wade through mountains of it in order to see modellers doing work simi
Spreading the Love
While browsing through the fun stuff the people at #TOT-Legacy (https://www.deviantart.com/tot-legacy) are doing, I stumbled onto this trend that seemed appropriate for Valentine's Day season... I'm featuring the first 10 people who comment on this journal.  And I encourage all of you to post a similar journal. 1. :iconarchangel72367: with the first comment!

Can We Stop Feeding the Poser-Haters?
To those of you who are reading this, but don't really like reading too much before you start commenting, let me get two things out there first:     1.  I'm no prude, but     2.  I think all the Poser Porn is kinda ruining things for us acceptance-wise as Deviant Artists (which, considering the name of the place, is a bit ironic, admittedly...) This whole line of thought started last summer when a Poser-Hater thread bubbled up to the top of the Journal Portal list. "Oh, no" I thought. "The traditional artists are breaking out the torches and pitchforks to go after the New-Media-On-the-Block." Pretty inevitable. Tends to happen every time s
