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.
Creating a Successful News FeatureCreating a Successful News FeatureCreating a Successful News Feature by lazybutt
The News on deviantART has suddenly become a place for users to submit their own news. This is not a bad thing in any sense of the word. In fact, this is a very good thing as it gives the user freedom to display news that may be effecting people whether it is deviantART related or not.

This can sometimes be a problem when the articles are not set up correctly to introduce the featured thumbs/artists. This can often quickly become spam.
In hopes of enlightening other users that wish to create a News Feature to spread the knowledge of a certain gallery or themed article I have compiled a list of things you should consider when creating this feature. Shall we begin?
The first thing that you should consider w

From The Mind of pachunka
