LET'S SPICE THINGS UP HEY GUYS SO HERE'S THE THING
When I started this group, I had hopes and dreams. I HAD A VISION.
I didn't. I really didn't. But the thing is, this group is positively DULLSVILLE. That is definitely at least 80% my fault since I do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I sit around and procrastinate and read about the futility of life in translated Russian literature by myself at night in the dark alone (I'm completely joking, I don't do this at all. Come on, I'm super cool).
Anyways, the thing is this: I think that we need to do something. I don't know what that something is. Maybe a contest? OCT? I HAVE NO IDEA. So I'm just going to leave this journal here and if you have any ideas, DON'T BE AFRAID OR TOO LAZY TO SPEAK UP AND PLEASE COMMENT AN IDEA THAT YOU LIKE!
That is all.
Thanks for reading, fishies,
ADMIN SPOT OPENI have a spot open for a DWEEB! You'll have slightly more power! Would anyone like it? You must be active and willing to consistently vote on submissions! If you're interested, comment below and I'll look into your "application"!
Updated Folders and StuffLimitations have been set for submissions and a new folder has been added for commissions and stuff you want to sell. If you have any suggestions or requests, please message me
Hoping to get more involved again, I'll see you ducks later
OCT WINNERS (FINALLY)If any of you remember, I created a OCT, Haunted House themed a long time ago and it is high time that I delivered the prizes.
THE WINNER: :iconWrapUp: did a tremendous job of keeping the stories up (though I do remember a panic when I discovered the original account had gone away) and keeping it interesting. Thank you so much for participating, I truly enjoyed your writing and I hope you continue to do so (Did you switch accounts again? I can only find the entries on your account).
THE RUNNER UP: :iconRifleTwoFour: To be honest, it really was super close between you and WrapUp. Both of you were strong writers, it was just a tiny difference. You too, should never ever quit writing because you did a fantastic job. Thank you so much for joining my little tournament.
Everyone please check these two out, as I think they deserve at the very least a chance of a page view for not only writing to their fullest but for also managing the deadlines and challenging themselves and each other.
Hi Everyone!Hello everyone, JJ here. I'm sad to announce that the contest is not going to happen. I'm also relieved, because I was going to shell out some money for points to give as prizes and now I don't have to do that. Anyways, onto the main topic.
I'm really disappointed in the amount of effort I've been putting in this group. I remember starting this group and how excited I was. I invited people left and right, promoted all of the artists I admired and some who just were plain awesome and deserved it and I loved seeing all the artwork submitted and and and *sob* . . .*clears throat* Anyways. I'd really love to turn this group into a community of just fun people who like art and stuff like that. So, I'll be spending more time on this: inviting more people, commenting on peoples' art, voting and explaining why or why not it was accepted, monitoring the folders, starting more contests with actual prizes, etc. . .
FANTASY CONTEST UPDATESo, five people have joined which means we need SIX more. I've changed it so that the deadline for contestants to enter is AUGUST 22 and the deadline for the actual contest (if eleven in total have joined) is NOVEMBER 22.
PLEASE COMMENT BELOW IF YOU ARE JOINING (even if you've already said so)
Fantasy ContestSo I'm getting back into DA and the group is starting to just become like every other stagnant group so I decided to make a contest! Any fantastical creature is allowed!
1. State that you'll be joining (and follow through)
2. It can be ANYTHING as long as it's Fantasy-Related
3. A short paragraph describing what you created and why
4. A minimum of 11 entries in total are required to make this a contest. Otherwise prizes won't be awarded (So tell your friends!!!)
5. The deadline is AUGUST 22
A watch from JJmyster22, a llama, a slice of cake, a requested piece
(If you can offer prizes that'd be great)
So let's reiterate! There will be no prizes unless eleven people join and submit their entries by August 22.
CHANGING THE FOLDERSSorry guys, but the folders are getting out of hand and there's art pieces that could easily go into multiple folders and a lot of you appear to have little clue to which folder is appropriate for your work of art.
Let's make this easier for the both of us.
Next week I will re-organize the folders so that they are like this:
-Photography and Photomanipulations
and of course the featured folder
And I'm going to put a new rule in the featured folder, SUBMISSIONS ARE ONLY ALLOWED ONCE A MONTH PER PERSON to further encourage you really put in your BEST work
Questions? Comments? leave them in the comment section below!
Much love from :iconkuneria: and the rest of the STFU gang!
PS You guys want to submit ideas for a new contest? ;D I'm open to suggestions! Maybe something summery?
Valentines ContestI feel like as a group, we haven't been doing much stuff lately. So let's have a small contest. Not anything big, just a small Valentines contest. Anything goes, as long as it has to do with romance or hearts or some shit like that. If you can give prizes, that'd be great.
Deadline: March 11, 2013
Prizes (so far): 1 watch from JJmyster22, 10 favorites from JJmyster22, 5 comments from JJmyster22, 1 feature from JJmyster22, 1 critique from JJmyster22, 1 muro drawing (on your profile) from JJmyster22, 1 drawing from JJmyster22, 1 poem/story/song from JJmyster22, 10 from JJmyster22, 1 watch from unusedEmotion, 10 favorites from unusedEmotion, 1 feature from unusedEmotion, 1 poem/story/song from unusedEmotion, 10 from unusedEmotion, 1 feature from STFUAndJoin, 10 favorites from STFUAndJoin

Make deviantArt a fucking better place!!! Part 1Okay, guys,
I think I need to be hard. I am more than 9 years an deviant here on dA. This is good for me to compare the past and now. And maybe have a clue how dA will be in the future.
I have the feeling dA is getting more and more heartless. And I am not the only one. I set up a little poll, and the few who took part gave me this:
The first years I was here, everything here was great! Great artists, nice people who you could talk to (and who talked with you, TOO!), a lot of fun with the community, reaction on my work, reactions on what I wrote for you, feedback like comments and faves and so on. But this has changed extremly. I feel lonely here most of the time. I have no Fun being part of this community anymore. (And I think may have the same opinion, as many left the community)
But what can we do?
This is why I will write some journals, all about this topic. I will tell you my point of few, and

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:
1. A detailed literary analysis and trope driven deconstruction of H
