I've uploaded some new stamps today, namely some memorials.
It's coming up on the 1-year anniversary of Eva Markvoort's passing. I was lucky enough to come across her story completely by chance back in the fall of 2009, and had the joy of following her blog over the last months of her all too short life. I was so touched that I sent her a box of goodies for Christmas that year, and that I'm tearing up while I type this now.
Eva was a champion for Cystic Fibrosis awareness and fundraising, the very disease that took her life, and organ donation, the very thing that gave her two more years to fulfill her dreams and create her legacy.
I had w
In case it wasn't painfully obvious, I've more or less moved on from dA. I will say that art theft issues, TOS violation issues, inappropriate for the dA community issues (blatant pornography, hate speech/"art"), and the delay in response time, or lack of response, by dA staffers/volunteers/whathaveyou was the main factor. (For example, I just found a response to a report received 11 weeks ago, but I have not logged in for well over 6 months.)
I still dabble in photography. I share it at Flickr.
I still blog. You can find me at Tumblr and Twitter. I have a beauty-related blog at WordPress.
I will keep my dA account open, so that people may
I've noticed something around dA; some people have quite the aversion to collections and collecting deviations.
I just don't understand it. Collections are still favs, they're just categorized and sorted. Adding something directly to a collection takes the same amount of time as it takes to fav, if not slightly longer, and when you fav something, it goes to a "featured" collection by default. Sometimes I fav something and add it to a collection afterwards, meaning it just took me 4-5 times as long.
Is it opposition to the act itself? Is it opposition to the name, "collection" evoking less feeling, making it seem more impersonal?
Hello, As I type this I am watching a show on oprah, Eva's story. I can't stop crying as I type this.... I myself have cystic fibrosis. I walk every year at a great strides walk in canada. My team name has always been 65 Roses. I have a website, www.cfkids.ca. Its hard cause I know sometime in my life, I may need a lung transplant. I'm afraid I cannot continue watching her story.... because I can relate too much.... I am scared for my future...
would you mind telling me why to boycott suicide girls...? a friend of mine told me about the site. i only checked it out. doesn't seem like much, didn't hold my interest for very long. just curious on why. thanx
However, I was a member back when girls were archived for no reason, their contracts were violated, their journals were edited and deleted to remove ANYTHING that said anything negative about SG (for example, when girls didn't get paid like they were supposed to, or were lied to about sets being used, and tried to tell the community, all mention was censored).
I was a member back when they decided to sue Lithium Picnic with the intent of putting him out of business, making up false claims to keep the courts tied up and keep him selling his equipment to fund his defense.
I was a member back when the mass archival happened, and they refused to tell anyone *why* it was happening. Anyone who tried to ask was told to stfu.
I saw a lot of ugly happen, and I have no intention of ever supporting them again.
