While I worked in the different Wikia sites, mainly Anime Vice and To Hollywood and Beyond, I notice some folks' personal websites are usually DeviantArt. It's interesting since the other half would be Tumblr or some sort of Word Press site. We have wiki editors who are into blogging and writing stuff and then making art.
I was curious if our folks in the message board have accounts. We might make a DeviantArt club thread and a group page same like the other club threads we have. I don't have a DeviantArt account since art isn't my cup of tea. I'm more of a wiki editor. I thought it would be nice if we have 5 or more folks then we could make a club thread. I won't be the club creator. Best to leave to an expert. You guys can bring in artwork or promote your work both in the message board or your DeviantArt account.
I'm just doing this so we can promote the community more.
For those who are new, as best I can explain what DeviantArt is, it's a site where folks publish art work to showcase or get commissions.
Wix Website Builder Buys Art Community Website DeviantArt
The Wix.com website builder company announced that it has acquired the art and design community website DeviantArt as of Wednesday. Wix purchased DeviantArt for US$36 million in cash, including US$3 million of assumed liabilities.
According to Wix, DeviantArt will continue to operate as a separate site. DeviantArt users will be able to use Wix's web design tools for building an online presence and business, and Wix users will have access to DeviantArt's art and artists for website building. Wix also plans to invest in DeviantArt's desktop and mobile apps.
DeviantArt has more than 40 million registered users and hosts about 325 million pieces of art. DeviantArt's CEO and co-founder Angelo Sotira and other DeviantArt employees will join the Wix management team and continue to operate out of Los Angeles.
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.

Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
