Dear Teen MeYou know what? Even as you, we'd both agree starting this off with a "Dear Timothy" is useless. We both know why I'm here to write this.Dear Teen Me by `timmy64
You're gay. It'd probably help to sit you down and explain the mechanics of all of this to you; but, let's face it, you're gonna need a couple of years of denial to sort this out any way. Mum and Dad are okay with it, you know, and these days we're in a stable relationship. It won't be easy though.
I'd love to be able to sit here and say that the next ten years are going to be a walk in the park. I'd love to be able to tell you that it gets better, and that things will run smoothly. They won't. Things will get worse before they get better. Your first relationship, well, he's a drug addict these days. Oh, you will care for him, and I still do; but, you won't stay with him long. Fear will get the better of you, and you'll run. You'll keep running for about two years. You'll get another fling or two, and after a while the damage will start to pile up.

This is a commonly requested one. This snippet of code will let you display a column to the side of your journal, with some thumbs in there. Much like the little scrolling boxes you see on some people's eBay listing pages. It can display vertical scroll-bars if needed, or hide them completely. Here's the code:

An Audience With: Mark WilkinsonThe MN@ Team are proud to present Mark Wilkinson as their first Guest in their new series of featured chats.An Audience With: Mark Wilkinson by $fourteenthstar
Born in Windsor in 1952, Mark Wilkinson has been working as a freelance illustrator for the past twenty-eight years. Most of his current work is in the realm of fantasy, and he has seen his illustrations used in a wide variety of formats, from book jackets, magazines, record sleeves and posters to stamp designs, advertising and film merchandise.
After a stint at art college Mark designed a few record sleeves for Polydor Records, a James Brown Greatest Hits' package, a series of classical covers for the Deutsche Grammaphon label and a few rock biography book covers for Queen and The Police, but was desperate to move into the world of record sleeves.
After working for Marillion and subsequently Fish in his solo years, Mark has also worked for bands and performers as diverse as Judas Priest, Bon Jovi, Iron Maiden, Kylie Minogue and Robbie Williams. Recently The Darkness and J
OMG MASSIVE PRINTS UPDATE!Hey everybody! I am sure you have all been wondering why the prints staff has been so quiet for the last year or so and what we are up to.OMG MASSIVE PRINTS UPDATE! by `robert
So, as an early Christmas present, the Prints staff has decided to break its vows of secrecy and silence, and reveal to you the mysteries of our department (rumors of which have echoed through the DA HQ halls for a long time now).
Since I took over as the Director of Prints last year, our first task was to evaluate the entire prints program, and identify the areas where we had problems as well as what we needed to do to improve things. Since then, we have undergone quite a few refinements, resolved a number of long term outstanding issues, and generally streamlined the entire operation.
Once that was all done, our next step was to look forward and figure out how to make the best prints program on the planet both for artists that have art and want to sell it, and for buyers that are looking for original and unique art.
Our manifesto can be summe

There's already a few threads on the subject, here's one in the deviants forum and another in the complaints forum. Feel free to join us in #TheThousandMurkMarch too.

Weekly Update-Special Focus-Internet SafetyCommunity DevelopmentWeekly Update-Special Focus-Internet Safety by !lolly
This week we will be taking a break from our traditional Weekly Updates to address one particular issue. The Updates will resume as normal next Wednesday.
We at deviantART.com are concerned for your safety. The internet is accessible to everyone from all walks of life and all ages and so is deviantART. Children, as well as adults, now populate the web in vast numbers making it difficult to distinguish the age of the person sitting behind the monitor.
Sadly, there are dangers to posting your personal information online and making it available to the world at large. However, you can protect yourself from harm by simply being smart about what you post online and how you interact with others.
We, the administration of deviantART, take your safety VERY seriously and would like to assure you that we are actively finding and banning, th
