This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get Core Membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
Phlum is a younger emoticonist, but that does not diminish his enthusiasm for the artform or his love for the community one bit. He is active in various projects and community events, and you can often see him watching and supporting newcomers to emoting.
Hullo, friends. Thought I'd do a bit of a journal to explain what's new...and what isn't! (Spoilers: not a lot's new, and most things are just the same as they were five years ago. Not a bad thing.)
Couple of weeks ago, I managed to pass (read: knock outta the park) a pretty major examination. Y'see, my career's flip-flopped around a bit and I'm now back in IT. It's not permanent, not if I have anything to say about it, but it'll do at least until I can become a bit richer.
So anyway, I'm now CompTIA A+ certified. That's the first step towards bigger and better things in terms of my career, and I'm very proud of my achievement...thirteen hundred pages in two weeks is a hell of a study session.
Thing is, though...it's not art, and it's not design. So, as I say, this is simply stop-gap material. High-end stop-gap material, much like a diamond-encrusted doorwedge, but stop-gap material nonetheless.
Anyway, that's the boring work stuff out of the way. How about something fun?! Yes, friends, the YouTube channel's back in full swing and we've got some fan-freakin'-tastic videos for your pleasure. With the ever-present dodgy audio, of course.
I implore you to go check out Broken Circus on YouTube if you haven't already. My recommendations as of recent videos? Well...
That about covers it. Hopefully this absolves me from a poor showing in NaNoEmo this year. I've been looking through some of the other entries and there's some great stuff there - really pleasing to see so many new emotes being made! Keep it up, fellas!
The challenge: create an emote for each of the themes in a given set of themes. Each theme is specifically designed to be open-ended, so you're free to interpret it in any way you like. :bademoticon: The emote can be in any format you like: chat friendly, visual purpose...you name it! :bademoticon:
A few house rules before we begin:
Your piece must relate to the theme in some way. If there's no clear link just from looking at it, you might wanna rethink your piece.
Your piece must be made specifically for the challenge, otherwise it defeats the point. There's no real way for me to verify this, so you gotta be honest
Your piece must contain emoticons to some degree - but that's a given, right?
If you like, you may incorporate two themes within one piece. They must, however, be from the same theme set.
Submit your work to the correct folder in the ChallengEmotes Gallery. If you don't have permission, let me know 'cause I've probably done something wrong again
<da:thumb id="161079959"/> Without further ado, your theme sets are:
Theme Set I
Theme Set II
Home of the Future
Theme Set III
On The Inside
Completing a set will net you a beautiful stamp-sized participation badge, for you to proudly display on your profile! It'll look something like this:
Complete the whole season and you'll get an extra-special gold badge with your name on it!
Oh, and one more thing: there is NO TIME LIMIT. New seasons and theme sets will be published periodically. You can work on it at your own pace!
And remember, all of the previous challenges can still be entered! There are no deadlines, so feel free to create something for one of our old challenges if you like! You may even notice that some of the themes are the same as the old challenges we had. Feel free to re-submit your original emotes, or start afresh!
