I am out of touch with Deviant Art! How's everybody doing? Say something to me if you see this! Dang I used to be on this site ALL THE TIME and now I haven't thought about it for ages. What is even happening around here? I could use a summary of the last five years in Deviant Art History!

Hey Ray! I emailed you like four years ago and you're still my favorite artist to check upon occasionally. Hope things are doing great! 
Hi 4 years ago emailer! I bet your deviant art name and email name are totally different, and I have no context for you! How are you?
Heya Ray! It's me Jaden! Your biggest fan?
Hey Jaden! What's happening!
Nothing really. Just was reading Piranha Pancakes and I noticed that it was changed from the original title "Um I Think Your Piranha Are Broken and other stories" Why is that?
