There are a few underway… Projects that is. Work stuff, personal stuff, art stuff… I'm nervous about all. It's been ages since I've stepped out from behind the desk so I thought I'd update where I can.

Work Stuff

I can't go into too much detail about work stuff but things they-are-a-changing. There are some subtle changes to the notification centre being tested and other bigger changes happening. 21 days of overwatch just ended and that was an immensely fun project. So creative and inspiring. I'm not sure I'll be able to play the game, but being a part of the release was a blast. Closer to my department, the FAQ's and stuff are in for some tweaks in the future. Updates where needed, rewrites, even a few being removed that are no longer valid. It's a huge project that we've been working on from the start of the year and it'll take some more time to finish, but it'll be worth it.

Personal Stuff

This stuff is the most frightening. Again, I don't want to say much about it because I'm afraid it'll all just fall to the ground around us, but it's a lot of big steps before anything concrete and that scares me. As things start to solidify I'll share more, but for now just keep your fingers crossed. And don't hate me too much for being vague.

Art Stuff

This I'm most excited about because it's underway. Every year I've participated in the Calendar Project Anne has spearheaded. An advent calendar style Skin project that lets artists give back a little something to this amazing community. In recent years it's gotten harder and harder for her to run it as interest has waned and life takes over. I think, however, that this project is vastly under-appreciated and I know it could be great again with the right incentives. I've spoken with her and she's agreed to let me adopt the project. Though I'm sure it will go through a heavy rebrand (as it were), featuring a completely different set of skills that should hopefully relate to more artists. I'm just wondering… is this something you might be interested in? Whether to participate or just to collect? I'm finalising some design adjustments and finishing up the various announcements, but this holiday season should be very exciting if all goes well. I hope to start sending out invitations in the next month or so. I know it seems early but since it's such a large undertaking I'd like to know where I stand early enough so I know whether to employ backups.

In other new…

I've been super stoked for the new #PokemonSun and #PokemonMoon games that were announced. Nintendo has been such a let down this year with the postponement of their new system, the NX, and games like Zelda, it's nice to see so many people rally behind them for at least 1 thing. Hopefully next year they'll blow everyone away, but it's been one disappointment after another with them I'm fully expecting just an average year with nothing game changing like all the rumours are saying. In any case, the new Pokemon games should be a big hit. I'm already excited but having such trouble deciding who my starter should be! I know it'll be either Litten or Rowlet, but I think I'll have to let my gut decide on launch day. Who do you guys think you'll pick? Are you #TeamLitten, #TeamRowlet, or #TeamPopplio ? Sound out in the comments below!

Rewatching #Zootopia with my nephew and we're getting our sketch on!

Filename by Ikue
Soooooo… I watched #Zootopia over the weekend, and there was this scene on the subway where a bunny mom and kid were sitting and a tiger got on and sat down next to them and the mom was scared and pulled the kid away, and all I could think was… “wow, that tiger is kinda hot.” I… I’m so confused… Am I now a furry? o.o
Trying to sketch #Litten but she's looking more like #GrumpyCat ! :ohnoes: #PokemonSunMoon

Thanks Chris :)

Hey there Ikue!
My friend recently made a new DeviantArt account, but she hasn't gotten a verification email. She HAS checked the junk mail, but still nothing seems to come from DeviantArt- but the email saying that the ticket she submitted was sent. When she got a reply it had seemed they hadn't read her email at all about how she explained she checked the spam and it wasn't there.
Ikue Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Please have your friend reply to their help desk ticket and make sure they have read it in full. It contains additional information at the end asking them to provide additional contact info.
PhoenixxFeatthers Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2016
It doesn't say that for her, it says for her to do what she's already done (Changing the emails, making sure they're correct, etc)
Ikue Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I assure you it does. Please have her reply directly to the ticket. We cannot assist her through you. We need to speak with her directly.

Hi Ikue! :wave:

Ever since the recent thumbnail grid update, I've been having pretty serious issues with the grid.
The New Thumbnail Grid - I Cannot Read Journals...I am sick of their needless updates that only make things worse, but this is taking the biscuit. :(
 Now, whenever I hover over journal thumbs or literature on the Browse feature, this happens...
Every single time. 
My browser is fine and my computer is fine. The bug only seems to happen since the update, therefore it seems that the thumbnail update is the cause.
So until they fix this, I need to be very careful about hovering over journals, and cannot click or read them. :( :( :(
And this isn't even mentioning their loading issues. I can't scroll down past the first loaded pictures now. It's ridiculous.
 I've explained things in this journal, with screenshots of what happens when I hover over journals/literature.

Please tell me you know how to fix this bug? It's making the browse journal section unusable... 

EDIT: Nevermind! I figured out the problem. I think it's stopped now! :D (Big Grin) I uninstalled and reinstalled my browser. I think that's solved it.

Glad you got it figured out. From what I could tell Chrome was committing suicide for some reason. I see you were using a custom version of Chrome. This doesn't happen on official released versions and sadly we can only support these official latest releases so if you insist on using a custom version yourself you may wish to test to see why your version is dying every time you hover over those thumbnails.

Still, it's worth mentioning such bugs in case they affect other browsers too. :) Thanks for getting back to me. :D
