The Slender Man
In this season of deceits deceptions & witcheries
I am wary of my following message not being received with the full gravity it deserves. It is not my intention to unduly alarm the deviantART community, but... $LaurenKitsune is at this time unaccounted for. All attempts on our part to contact her have failed. It is my hope that she has simply taken a much deserved unscheduled pre-Halloween “vacation” and will be back in online communication soon.
Before going dark, $LaurenKitsune was good enough to write and transmit a report on the Slender Man phenomenon sweeping the Internet. That report is published here fo
Site Update: Description WriterWhat's New
Writing Descriptions with Sta.sh Writer
As part of our initiative to make formatting and conversation easier and more dynamic, you can now use the Add Media tool to add content and formatting to deviation descriptions, Sta.sh item descriptions, and Sta.sh stack descriptions!
This makes it easier than ever to add formatting to your artist's description, and it also makes it easier than ever for Premium Members to include images in descriptions!
New "Create A Profile" Flow
We've updated and simplified the "Create Your Profile" modal to make it easier to sign up and get your Profile Page started!
The "Edit In Sta.sh Writer" button would not work when single-clicked. Fixed by $ZombieCoder
On the "Manage Friends" page, Groups containing some non-alphanumeric characters in their titles caused errors. Fixed by $kemayo
dAmn It To Be Phased OutThe deviantART community is always growing and changing. To keep the site fresh and relevant, we need to focus on what's important, otherwise we'll spread ourselves too thin.
Recently, we've been going through all of the site's features and settings to assess usage, traffic, community reception, and how the feature helps contribute to deviantART's goals.
dAmn It, the system where deviants can submit and vote on funny quotes from Chat (originally called "dAmn" or deviantART Messaging Network), is a feature that gets extremely low usage and traffic.
On November 30, 2013 dAmn It will be officially phased out. Until then, the feature has been removed from the main site navigation but will still be available via the Chat page for those who want to archive any quotes.
Phasing out unused and outdated features allows us to focus our resources on improving existing features and building new ones to hel
November Artisan Crafts Monthly ChallengeAnother month, another challenge!
We totally didn't do a poll this month. Oops. November creeped up all stealthy-like, so I'm gonna find you a theme by looking backwards for a moment.
Not quite so painfully as that.
Looking over our past polls, the closest runner up for the theme was unicorns. So we're gonna craft unicorns this month!
Here's everything you need to know to enter this contest:
The theme this month is "Unicorns".
You are free to interpret this however you want, we're not exactly strict. Also, a small description of how you interpreted the theme might help.
Seriously, read those. No more warnings! Your entry will be automatically disqualified if one of these is not respected.

Movember, Fun and ThumbShare - Feature!Last night's Movember-themed event in :#communityrelations: last night was a blast! For such an intimate gathering we had a lot of fun!
First up, there was Trivia - 17 Movember (and moustache!)-themed questions ranging from:
'How many conversations on men's health started as a result of the moustaches grown in 2012?' (a: 2,413 )
'How long [to the nearest metre] is the world's largest moustache?' (a: 4! )
The winners of that round were $Pickley, *pwassonne, and =WintersRead! Congrats!
Then there was some thumbing! I invited everyone to post three to five thumbnails of their deviations to be included in this feature! Here

A Copyright Briefing (New Updates 3/5/13)I am not a lawyer. I do not know everything there is to know about copyright law and cannot assist you with legal matters. I have studied copyright extensively and written many DMCA Takedown Requests for myself to successfully get the illegal use of my work stopped. This article is in no way comprehensive. It does not include 100% detail on copyright laws. If you want more information or just want to browse more of my writing on copyrights, please go here.
Copyright and "Theft"
Why sharing can be illegal.
There is quite a bit of confusion about copyright law, the DMCA, fair use, de minimus, etc. And rightly so. I always try to give people the benefit of the doubt when I come across what appears to be a "theft" issue. Even people in the United States, the home of the DMCA and one of the strongest supporters of
