I want to thank everyone who has written to me over the last few days. Whether it was positive or negative, I appreciate encountering real passion in whatever form it takes. I wrote what is below in response to a thoughtful comment I received, and felt it might be worth sharing with anyone who comes across my page in the days to come. Change can be difficult, I really do understand this. It's especially difficult because this update is such a large one. Usually updates are rolled out more incrementally on networks like ours, so the differences are less glaring. Unfortunately the old version of DA did not get this steady diet of modifications over the years, so this redesign feels a little more jarring as we give the site it's first rejuvenation in many years. We've written personal and public statements saying we're listening to concerns but honestly they mainly fall on deaf ears. I get why too - take an instance where people ask for a change or a feature and we totally agree and

When art becomes a popularity contest

When art becomes a popularity contest

Community Week I think we've all been there: we try real hard, but we can't help comparing ourselves to others and sometimes spending too much time worrying about statistics on our art. "Why did this photo get less views and likes/favs?" or "This person gets thousands of likes/favs for what I feel is lesser quality art, why can't I get more attention?" are some questions that might come across your mind. Instagram, Facebook, DeviantArt, 500px, whatever social media platform you use to share your art, you've most likely experienced some frustration at some point regarding how "well" you were doing on that platform. So, what is the point of th

Coming Together as a Global Community

Coming Together as a Global Community

During these unprecedented times, COVID-19 (coronavirus) has impacted countless lives and left many people around the globe homebound in an attempt to limit the threat of the virus by way of social distancing and quarantine. While it’s one of many important and necessary precautions to take, being kept at home and separated from friends and loved ones is never easy. It can sometimes help to have things to do, in order to maintain mental and emotional well-being. With that in mind, we want to provide you with a starting point for fun, simple activities you can do from the comfort of your own home. On DeviantArt :deviantart: We have a wide array of topics to explore for anyone who wants to view wonderful art. Do you like cats? We’ve got you covered. More of a dog person? No problem. In the mood for a delicious cake? What about thousands of them? No matter what you’re looking for, it’s a quick search away.

Is Art An Illusion ?

Is Art An Illusion ?

(best viewed maximized) Welcome, friends and watchers alike. Is Art an Illusion ? This is a question we are asking. The response can be introspective or subjective, abstract or concrete.  Art is generous in its boundaries, it encompasses and absorbs the absolute diversity of thinkers and expressionists and spans the spectra of form and media.  We would love to hear your thoughts on this. Please do share them in the comments section.  I would hope that I can do a follow up journal, featuring thought provoking answers and the artists who shared them. Sometimes I have trouble telling my dreams from reality.The farther I travel

Changing browser zoom for Eclipse

Changing browser zoom for Eclipse

Like I've said in a few places, changing your browser's page zoom to 80% makes a world of difference, bringing everything back to a scale we're used to. Problem is it also shrinks images we don't really want affected - like full-view deviations and emotes. (screenshots are ~half-width, full-height of my monitor) I haven't checked the others, but in Firefox you can change the way page zoom works so it only changes font-size (like it used to back in the day). Hit Alt on the keyboard to bring up the menu bar, go to View > Zoom and toggle Zoom Text Only. Problem is, this doesn't shrink the layout we really want affected. lol. The best solution would be a userstyle (custom CSS we'd load in our browser), because then we could be selective about which image do or don't get shrunk - thumbnail grids good, full-view deviations and emotes bad, etc. Maybe someone else is already working on that. I miss the old days of writing userstyles to re-skin dA, but Eclipse's HTML is a literal

Oh hey! Almost missed your comment. I've been waiting for you to check back in about the situation in the US. I need you to tell me what I should think about it senpai.

About this video though, systemic vitamin D deficiency isn't news to me, and I've long been supplementing for it. Spooks don't get out in the sun too much ;)

'virus killing effects' is a misleading statement though, he's setting up vitamin D as more of a panacea than it actually is in practice. Yes, deficiency is heavily correlated to multiple health issues, and everyone probably should be putting effort to make sure they get enough by food or supplements, but it's not some magic substance that makes us superhuman and impervious to illness.
