My Bio
 
Hi, I'm Stanley Sy. I'm a graduate of the Art and Art History joint program at University of Toronto and Sheridan College. I work behind-the-scenes designing "stuff" for deviantART.

Most of it involves hand-coding XHTML & CSS for various layouts (such as new events, news or journal entries) around the site. I really enjoy solving usability issues and organizing information for clarity, so it's been a fun, on-going challenge.

I get to work with some pretty talented people such as pachunka (who does most of the cool front-end stuff you see here), levinet (who helps me out a lot), OliverJanoschek (who does all those funky Fella images) and many more.

Previously, I designed deviantART's Minimal skin. I also like to dabble in pixel art. You'll find a few of my little toolbar icons across deviantART.

Do you wear glasses?

Do you wear glasses?

Depending on the kind of screen you use and how heavy your glasses are, some of these images might look 3D! (If you're wearing contacts, these will mostly look flat). The reds will look like they're popping out, while the blue recedes into the back. Chromostereopsis is a visual illusion whereby the impression of depth is conveyed in two-dimensional color images, usually of red-blue or red-green colors (Wikipedia) Check out these works by deviant doc3002/chromostereopsis:

Deviousness Award

There's a reason `starvingartist is a senior member here at deviantART, and it's not just his length of stay. Stanley has continually given to this community rather than take from it, and as such has proven his resourcefulness in this world of art. We see his contributions in not only his comments and submissions, but every day in the form of both his Minimal skin and the many small icons throughout the site. For these reasons, we at deviantART are proud to award `starvingartist with the Deviousness Award for September 2003.
Awarded Sep 2003

ATTENTION DEVIANTART STAFF:

THERE IS A BUG ON YOUR WEBSITE AND IT HAS NOT BEEN FIXED.

PLEASE GET OFF YOUR LAZY BUTT AND FIX IT, THIS IS NOT MY JOB TO TELL YOU:

This is the issue: A spammer is randomly liking comments triggering a wave of notifications on my messages panel. This results in me mass deleting comments, and accidentally deleting comments from buyers interested in my artwork. I take steps to test the validity of DA's "block system." So I upload an artwork, post a comment, then disable the comments section. I refresh the page and I unable to access the comments section. Good. I then create a secondary account, which I block, try to access my main account and post a comment, but am unable to (good). However THIS spammer is able to bypass ALL of that. Even after blocking them they are STILL able to view my artwork and access the comments section HOURS AFTER the comments section was disabled. That should NOT be happening. Your DA "block system" is MESSED UP. DA blocks ME from accessing their page, yet THEY still have access to MY deviations and comments section after -I- was the one who blocked THEM? As the user who does the blocking, I should be the one to still access their profile, NOT THEM. WTF are you doing DA? Why are you ignoring people's requests to get this fixed? Are you intentionally trying to dodge your job and responsibilities on this website? This is YOUR responsibility, NOT OURS. FIX IT. THIS IS A SERIOUS BUG. This spammer has over HUNDREDS of accounts. I am mass deleting HUNDREDS of their notifications and am getting TIRED of it. It should not be THAT HARD for you to simply check up their IP ADDREDSS and BLOCK their usage of this site using their IP ADDRESS. Here is a list of all of their accounts:

I have made a forum related to this. READ HERE:

I block this user, assuming they will have no access to my page and all information associated with me. HOWEVER they are able to BYPASS this by STILL viewing all my deviations.
