The staff were asked to help populate the thought drawings pool and naturally I took a crack at it. Could you tell which ones were mine? Did any of you happen to get one that I made? I've seen quite a few of the ones I made make it to the most popular view which is mind blowing. I've never been there with my own art. XD It's kinda flattering.
So I screwed the pooch on this one… It appears the name TypeFight is already taken by another organization and they contacted me asking to resolve the confusion. I should have done my due diligence and researched the project a bit more but in my excitement I got carried away and pushed forward blindly. My Apologies
To that end I will be rebuilding the group on a new name. No longer will it be TypeFight, from henceforth you can find us at TypeBattle. All of the links and logos have been updated to reflect this new change. The journals and polls will be unaffected so if you have them faved or bookmarked you wont need to update your links. The old group will remain open for the next day or so while I migrate our early entrance fighters to the new group. In the mean time, I ask that all spectators please visit the new group and add that to your watchlist so you are kept up to date on the new battles.
Thanks for your understanding.
Help You This Year
I thought I'd do things a bit differently this year in regards to my New Year Resolutions. I already know what I want to accomplish this year in regards to my personal life, but I'm not sure exactly what I should strive for when it comes to my deviantART life. So I ask you; what is it you think I should do this year? Please leave your suggestions in the comments below. I'd love to hear what it is you guys think I should be doing more/or less to help make deviantART a better place for you.
ginkgografix is an awesome person and all around excellent artist. She throws this project every year and it really does take a lot of effort to pull off. Please go give her some love and support!
deviantART turns 13!

If that's not kismet I don't know what is! I encourage all of your to answer the few simple question on the deviantHEART site and find your soulmate today!
We've been searching for a place to live for a little while now and it seems to bring frustration and disappointment every time we turn a corner.
It's really not possible to purchase a home here unless you've got a significant amount of savings and you're married with a job that pays you more than you're worth.
You'd think renting would be easier, but finding a place within your budget that is decent to live and in an area where you won't get murdered in your sleep or have to wake up 2 hours earlier so you can drive the entire island just get to work is proving to be just as hard.
It's times like this I really wish I didn't have to move back home after I finished school.
What are you searching for? Are you having any luck with it?
To help me get back in to the swing of things ChewedKandi has given me an amazing opportunity to write for Vectuts+. I've already got a tutorial hosted with them with a few more in the works. But, what I'd really like to do is rekindle that feeling of warmth you get from featuring talented artists, so I'll be hosting some interviews with various vector artists in the months to come. What I'd love from the Vector Community is the names of some amazing vector artists you've come across in your time on dA. These can be vector artists or any style or genre, using any program from Illustrator to InDesign, Illustrators to Typographers and anywhere in between.
I'm also very much open to dailyD suggestions. I've been terrible in this department since I started working full time for dA but I plan to change that. I'd appreciate vector art for dailyD suggestions but if the work is truly amazing I'd feature just about anything. :)
I just got a WiiUand I'm looking for friends to connect with! Add me as a friend on the Nintendo Network using the ID above.
In any case, I'd like to extend well wishes to you all and a happy holiday, regardless of what that holiday might be. May your days be devious and bright.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.

Where do we go from here?I've grown to hate the adage "if it ain't broke, done fix it". People on the internet like to throw this saying around whenever things deviate, even the slightest bit, from what they consider to be the norm. Working in the digital world, things don't need to break in order to make progress. I mean honestly, nothing was wrong with the cassette tape, it didn't break, and yet everyone now owns an MP3 player. Floppy disks were perfectly adequate, but alas, we all carry jump drives that can hold more information than computer hard drives could back in the early 90's.
Just because something works, doesn't mean it can't work better. Just because something is new, doesn't mean it should be feared. Should we stop inventing because we already have something that works similar to something else? Why bother with creating what's already been recreated?
If you haven't already, embrace the ever changing digital world. Take comfort in the fact that the only norm in this future is the constant state of change we're in. We're not fixing anything, we're improving everything.
