A probable solution to commission chargebacks.
Artists who create commissions know one caveat with accepting PayPal: their Seller Protection doesn't cover services, so they can and will be SOL if the buyer decides to dispute the transaction. While Buyer Protection doesn't cover services either, PayPal is notorious for ruling in the favor of the buyer, so the seller needs to look into other ways of protecting themselves. Which leads to our discussion here, of how we can leverage Seller Protection to ensure scamming buyers can't run off with the money after the service is completed -- by converting your commission service into a tangible product.

Annie Market [25 up]
Sometimes owners don't connect with their Annies, something in their life occupies them, or just switch their Annie for another one and still make sure they get an owner who does have time and love for their precious Annie!

Using HTML on deviantART
Hello! Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking. :) deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place? :dummy

In January, PoetryPlease announced the start of a contest of epic proportions. Those brave enough to join in the fierce competition were put through a rigorous five month writing and editing process. Many fighters joined, but many faltered and fell. In the end, only ten proud warriors emerged on the other side, submitting the fruits of their difficult labour. One three, however, could survive the final challenge--an in-depth scrutiny from a panel of power-house judges. These Three will now do down in PoetryPlease history as the leaders of this Epic Competition, and one, the strongest of the Three, will hold a special place in the history books...

Ok, enough sillyness. The point of the contest, in short, was to write an Epic Poem of at least 1000 words that paid particular attention to form and flow. The amazing contest prizes were/are as follows:

1st Place:

Publication in Soundzine.
Basic artist bag from CR
1 year sub from CR
$30 deviantdollars from CR

2nd Place:

3rd Place:

3 month sub from CR
$15 deviantdollars CR
Journal feature from ^StJoan

While the judging panel dwindled a little, the final contest judges ended up being:

`cypher-neo, ^lovetodeviate, `ATrue & *ThornyEnglishRose.

From the release of the Epic Poetry Contest in January to the final judging, it's been a long process, but now we've finally decided on our winners! Without further ado we present our winners as:

1st place winner: ~bertron-the-prophet with The Arboretum

2nd place winner: ~Aruchel with Aurora's Rose
