November Thankstivity

Sun Nov 4, 2012, 9:42 AM


It is easy to point out the flaws....


Cliques, lack of communication, bad art that gets too many views, good art that doesn't get enough views, crappy DDs, and on and on and on. The complaints people have about deviantART could fill a book the length of the Bible, but November is a month for remembering what we have to be thankful for and so I challenge you, Solutions Seekers, to take a look around and find at least three things about deviantART that make you thankful for the community.

The Challenge


Create a deviation or journal that explores at least three reasons you're thankful for deviantART. It can be anything from tutorials and other resources to friends you've made to great art you've stumbled across to a favorite group. Whatever it is that keeps you coming back, I want to know about it.

Rules
:bulletpurple: One entry per deviant.
:bulletpurple: For this challenge, no mature content please. Let's make sure everyone can see what makes you thankful for dA.
:bulletpurple: Upload your deviation or journal to the Thankstivity folder in the favorites, here: solutionssanctuary.deviantart.…
:bulletpurple: You do NOT have to be a member of the group to participate, but we would love it if you joined! :heart: Also, group contributors and admins are encouraged to participate. This contest is judged by LiliWrites and a public poll. :)
:bulletpurple: Entries are due by November 22, 2012 @ 11:59pm Eastern Time. (Thanksgiving in the US)

Prizes


Each deviant that enters the challenge will receive 25 points. The top three deviations/journals will be chosen by LiliWrites to be featured in the group's journal and those deviants will each be invited to participate in an interview conducted by LiliWrites. The top three deviations will be put into a public poll and whichever is voted best will win an additional 175 points, totaling 200 points for the top winner!

:new: Winners will also be featured by Astrikos!

:heart: Lili

:new: A brief tutorial for submitting to group favorites! I hope this helps.

:facepalm: I was on the wrong view for my journal, so that's why the "Submit to Group" thing didn't show up. My bad. My brain is clearly clogged with turkey. :lol:

Heres my entry:
1. You
2. People like you
3. People who are working hard to be more like you

Communities aren't about words or letters, or stories or poems or scripts. They are about people. People working hard to help activate the creativity inside of others. Pretty much what you do.

You're pretty much the best person. EVER.
If everyone's' journals aren't full of nothing but endless bullet points saying "`Kneeling-Glory" then this world no longer makes any sense at all.

I have wondered for a while now... is it "ah-lane"..."allen"...or "a-lane" or something else entirely?

Also, you are sweet. :heart: But the bullet points must end at some point, and thus the world continues to be senseless. I rather prefer it that way though. :B

Carmalain7 Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012
You are not the first, nor will you be the last, but yeah it's "ah(long a)-lawn". Like "a lawn mower". That being said, at this point in my life, i pretty much answer to anything even remotely close to it, which actually occasionally gets me in trouble.

Ex.
Instructor: "Get in a line."
Me: "yes?"
Instructor: "What?"
Me: "did you not just say my name... nope... cool."

Nah, it's totally not senseless at all and also completely doable. As most amateur (and above) programmers will know, it's all about 'for' loops, just make it infinitely 'true' and crash the Java. And that, kids, is the true meaning of Christmas.
