dA Guide: Text Formatting
This is just a quick text formatting guide for dA. My goal was to make a simple html guide for easy reference.  Please PAY ATTENTION to where the codes WILL and WILL NOT work!  (Certain codes won't work in comments and deviation descriptions, no matter how hard you try.)  :'D
 
I provided "working examples," which might make the codes easier to understand because you can see them in action. (Keep in mind that when you type html tags, the effects won't be visible until AFTER you hit "Preview" on your comment, journal, etc. I only made them visible for the purpose of demonstration.) Enjoy!!!
 

The following codes can be used in
comments, deviation descriptions, journals, and profile page widgets.


This will make bold text.
This will also make bold text.
This will make italicized text.

Tutorial: Making a Fan Troll
H O M E S T U C K f a n T U T O R I A L
Hello, and welcome. I'll be listing helpful hints for creating a fan troll for the series Homestuck. This is in no way the laws of making a fan troll, it is merely a guide. You may follow whatever bits and pieces of the tutorial as you want, but be warned; the internet feeds off Mary-Sues and Gary-Stus.
Melodramatic warning aside, now let's continue.
Rule one to making a fan troll: You NEED to have read the actual webcomic before creating an oc. Going off of what you hear and not what's stated in the actual webcomic is the perfect way to mess everything up.
Now, some vocabulary, for those not familiar with the "proper" terms.
Trolls - If you do not know, get out.
Hemospectrum - The blood caste system which classifies the upper, middle, and low classes in troll society.
Blood Caste - A troll's position in the hemospectrum.
Culled - Being killed for being "useless" or "wrong" in troll society.
Lusus Naturae - usually shortened to lu

The Truth About Selling Fanart
Update notice as of January 17, 2013: I have given this guide a MAJOR overhaul. It was originally written over a year and a half ago, and since then my own views and understanding of copyrights has changed. I felt that this guide should reflect those changes, so if you read this guide in the past, please take a moment to look through it again as I have added MANY new topics, information, and sources. Unlike my first draft, I have also changed my viewpoint to neutral throughout this writing.
Update notice as of July 17th, 2015: Check out DeviantArt's new article on art theft, fanart, copyrights, and other relevant topics! http://protectart.deviantart.com/journal/The-Art-Theft-Discussion-544490149
