How to Invent a Good Username
Time for a quickie tutorial!
Your username (also known as nick) gives one of first impressions of you when introducing yourself online. At the best, your username tells people you're an original person with good taste, and at the worst, it blends you to the mass of people lacking imagination.

GENERAL ISSUES TO THINK ABOUT
Here is a list about issues that are healthy to think about in general. After this section, I'll give you "not to do" and "to do" lists about creating usernames. So...
The most important thing is that YOU like your name. If you don't feel cozy with your username, it will irritate you sooner or later. However, especially if you are still young or new with Internet, be prepared for that your naming taste may change later and you may dislike that name you picked first! (That's something I have seen in the comments of this tutorial.)
For example, my first online username was, if I remember correctly, my given name + my birth year (like, Lisa90,

Create Art to Fight for Net Neutrality

DeviantArt is teaming up with Battle For The Net, the campaign to fight for net neutrality. We need weaponized artworks to drive home the message.
July 12th will be a day of coordinated grassroots efforts across the net to bring attention to the shadowy efforts of powerful cable industry forces to do away with net neutrality — a rule that protects open and equal access to the net by all publishers. We will join alongside sites like Reddit, Twitter, Amazon, Vimeo, Netflix, Soundcloud, and many others in activating our memberships to stand together for net neutrality.
We’re asking deviants to create art that other deviants and Internet warriors can share on July 12th. Your art may also be selected to be distributed far and wide by the official Battle For The Net campaign. Make your voice heard through your art!
The FCC wants to destroy net neutrality and give big c

Protest and Act Now! Save Net Neutrality!

Today, DeviantArt has joined hundreds of other sites across the Web to fight for net neutrality, but we need your help!
Net neutrality protects open and equal access to the Internet. Without it, Internet Service Providers — like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon (among others) — could begin to charge extra fees, engage in economic censorship, and control what we see and do on the Web by throttling sites, apps, and other online services.
Why is this important? On December 14th, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote to gut the protections for net neutrality.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Call or write your Congress person and demand that they stop the FCC from gutting net neutrality. Call and write to congress.
Share messages on all of your social accounts begging people to join the protest now. There is no time to waste.(NOW OVER) Protest
