Emoticon Appreciation DayWelcome to another Emoticon Appreciation day. Today we celebrate the existence of Emoticons on dA and the existence of Emotes in general. They bring us joy and they help to show our Emotions. You can celebrate this day, by using more Emotes than usual or you can participate in the events that I prepared for today. I hope you will have lots of fun.
I use this Journal as an Overview Journal for all the events that will happen today, so you don't miss any of them.
First of all I want to tell you that I won't announce a specific set of prizes, all I can say that I have 2500 and all of them will be used. Everybody who participates has the chance to win something (if you have the correct answer). The fastest deviants might get a few more points. ;D
Here are the Events: You can learn more about the events by visiting the corresponding Journals.
(You don't have to participate in all of them.)
oh and everything that has been created f
New Management at #Fella - The Official dA GroupHello Deviants and Fellas!
For the past few months `RockstarVanity has been running #fella and has done an extraordinary job! However, she is trying to pull back a little and has handed leadership of the group over to me. `RockstarVanity will still be a part of the group's posse and help run things within the group.
For those of you that do not know me, my name is `TimberClipse, or in real life, Zev. I am a student and filmmaker and absolutely love the deviantART community. I currently run a number of groups, but the two main ones that I focus on are #fella and #deviant365 (deviantART's official 365 group).
We will be ramping up some new events here at #fella shortly including a small contest that will be announced soon, so stay tuned!
In the mean time, drop by `RockstarVanity's page and give her a huge thank you for all she has done and will continue to do.
My best wishes to you all,
Fabulous FridaysWelcome to Fabulous Fridays!
Here at #dAWishingWell We aim to grant wishes. However, we can only do this with the help of active members.
Here is a thank you to the outstanding deviants who have granted many wishes lately!.
This feature is now Bi Weekly, in case you didn't notice from two weeks ago.
Granted: 150 points (each) have been given to =Emberguard, *Sunnimi, *TheTwinkieDragon, and ~Wragziez
Welcome + Overview 'Birthday Party'Hey everyone!
Today starts the party and we have prepared a few things for you. Below is a time schedule for you to see what you can expect and what you might want to join. There had been some more ideas, but time was too short to add that to the schedule so maybe there will be more smaller events in the future for you to take part.
For now we hope that you enjoy what we have prepared! Stay eCSSited!

Several Fifi la Fume dreamsWhen I sleep at night, during my sleep-in I had several dreams of myself been with Fifi la Fume as my friend, she wraps her huge massive tail around me, it's really soft, and fluffy tail, me and her smiling at each other, she hugs me, while me hugging back with her, with my both of my hands rubbing her fur, and rubbing her back, rubbing the white stripe on her back, slowly up and down. I really like and love that purple and white skunk, Fifi la Fume.
*The hug scene of me and Fifi, she leaps on to me, me on my knees bend down low, she wraps her huge, massive tail around me, her tail is so soft and fluffy as blanket, kisses my cheek three times, her hands held on my face, laid her head on my shoulder, her hands wrapped around my neck, with my head her left shoulder, placed my hands oh her lovely back, rubbing her white stripe gently*
Mothers DayMother's Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
Art ThievesAre amongst us...
We had a few banned today, and I must say... how insane is it that these fools are submitting to a group of this size?
One of you always catches them! And on the rare instances you don't., anyone else who does looks at the groups the art was submitted to and contacts me about it.
So let's let it be clear... the artwork we accept in this group must belong to you, or you must give full credit to the person it belongs to.
Screenshots are not original art. You want to include them here? Include what game it's from, and that it's a screenshot.
"Advertisers" need not join us. You're not helping out the other artist by submitting work to 120 groups and claiming any part of it is yours, when all you did was remove the watermark, or make edits. Unless you have the artists's permission and link back to them, and even reply in comments that you did not do the artwork, you are stealing.
Those using stock photography must follow the rules of the photographer.
We will listen to you
CISPA passed the House, but this isn't over yet.Word for word from this site http://www.deviantart.com/users/outgoing?http://www.sitesnotspies.org/
The U.S. Government wants to turn the Internet into a private surveillance system. It's called CISPA, and this Spring we're organizing the largest online privacy protest in history to stop it for good. Are you in?
So please pass the message along to fight CISPA.
*Rules Alice in Chains is an anime that is created by Kamryn Wells (Founder of this group/ Kamryn30).
We accept requests. If for some reason we deny your request, probably because we have too many requests on our hands.
If you have mature content on the artwork, we have to check it out before we accept it and put it into our gallery.
Couples and fan-fictions are allowed. *Mature content needs to be checked out first ^
*Please! do not steal other's work and trick us into putting it into out gallery.
If you have any questions, please ask them in the comments below. We will ask as many questions as possible to satisfy your curiosity.
*DO NOT keep trying to submit an entry that we have denied already.
If you have anything to say, please say it.
*There may be contests later on.
We appreciate you joining us in our group!
:bulletblue: If you are wanting

IMPORTANT Stuff You Need To KnowHey!
Welcome to "Stuff You Need To Know" #54! This journal covers what's up on our current challenge, the upcoming contest, and a pimp for an affiliate's challenge.
First, due to the result of the recent poll, the "Beautiful Women" challenge will be extended. I think one more week should do it, so the new due date is 10:00 a.m. CST, on Sunday, May 26th. Please, please, please, please participate so that we can have a real competition. Okay?
If you have not started on an entry, you can find the information here: http://manipulatethis.deviantart.com/journal/New-Portrait-Challenge-370041748
This also means that we will not have another challenge before the new contest. This will give us a nice little break.
Next, the new contest is called "Seasons" and it will be a background contest. Meaning, I'll give you backgrounds for the 4 seasons, and you will select one to complete the scene, add an appropriate model
Wolf loverI absolutly loved wolves! for those who want wolf lineart and wolf stuff(not super digital arts and photos)Wolves are one of my fav animal, they are beautiful creatures that live mostly in alaska and some parts of america.
They are almost endangered because:
Humans! thats right, humans, us humans hunt them down for their beautiful pelt(fur) and also because they stole stuff from farms(e. g sheeps)
You might think that's because they steal. but hey, they are risking lifes just to have something to eat! And what about us? seating on your computer, drinking soda...
I hope wolves don't extinct because of us.

New! Deviation of the WeekHey all. In order to get some activity flowing, =TheGalleryOfEve and I have thought up of something new for the group
We will be posting a poll every week with 5 deviations that have been submitted to the favorites folder. Throughout the week, members will have a chance to vote which is their favorite piece. At the end of the week, the deviation with the most votes will be put into a custom box on the front page, have their work put in the featured folder of the favorites, and have a chance at becoming deviation of the month! The custom box will also include a mini feature of the artists gallery and will be up all week long.
I will be posting the first poll up in a few minutes, so please get ready to vote

#133: Help the 100 Premium Memberships Project!Please, it will take only few minutes!
Maybe many of you don't know, but `JoseFelipeM is gathering 63,600 points to donate 100 Premium Memberships on Christmas (like a dA Santa or something).
He needs almost 4000 points to reach his goal. You can make a donation, but if you have no points, he had another idea.
I can't tell you what is all about, but if you want to get involved, you should send him a note.
A "How can I help you with your project?" should be fine! He'll explain everything!
Really, if you regularly join dA, you can help him doing very few things. Please, help `JoseFelipeM to reach his goal and make someone's Christmas day!
Thank you for your attention and have a nice day!

Rope dug into Patrick’s wrists as he struggled to free his hands. His hot, damp breath washed over his face, trapped by the fabric sack secured over his head.
A floorboard creaked. Patrick froze, his back rigid against the chair, and strained his ears. Another creak.
“Hello?” he called.
The sound of swishing fabric.
“Who’s there? Where am I? Why’d you bring me here?” Blurred memories swam through his mind: drinking at the bar; stumbling home; a shadow sweeping out from an alley.
Fingers grasped his chin and jerked his head upward. “Hush.” A woman’s voice.
Keep in Touch!
