If you like the new logo, this journal entry isn’t for you, but if you don’t like the new logo, I have a plan to get it changed. So far, people have just been complaining about the new logo looking terrible, but that isn’t going to do anything. The deviantART staff will just think we’re complaining because we don’t like change. We can’t just tell them that the new logo is terrible, we need to PROVE it!

We need to put our pencils where our mouths are. We need to spend our time making or improving their logo, to prove to them that their logo is bad, and that we want them to change it. They say that deviantART is for the community; that we’re all in this together. Well let’s see them prove it!

If we all work together, and ALL of us make our own logo, we’ll be sending a message to deviantART. A message they simply won’t be able to ignore. If their entire art community is willing to spend the time to fix the mistake they made, they HAVE to pay attention.

What I’m saying, is that we all need to make our own logo. I want you to go make your own deviantART logo. It can be based on their current one, or it can be completely different. You can use digital art, traditional art, or even pixel art. Just make your own logo. After that, tell everyone you know to do the same thing.

If we all pull together and do this, deviantART will have to notice that we aren’t simply complaining. We’re trying help deviantART!

So to list it more simply:
    ·    Make your own deviantART logo
    ·    Use the tags #speakout and #Newlogo, and if appropriate #dahybridlogo
    ·    Tell everyone you know to make their own deviantART logo (perhaps linking them to this journal entry)

If we flood deviantART with this many alternate logos, each one showing our displeasure with the current logo. Then they will notice, and they will have to realize that they need to rethink their logo design. We can do this if we ALL WORK TOGETHER, we just need to be heard.

NOW GO MAKE THAT LOGO!!!

EDIT:

OHhhh, you're from England after all.
Then I'm sure you can relate much more with all the comparissons and descriptions made in Adam's books.
Is the pizza delivry "problem" still present?
Are you both a Douglas fan, AND a brony?

[spoiler]PD: Do you by any chance like Monkey Island?[/spoiler]

Yeah I suppose can relate a lot more to Adam's book. Although that being said, they were all written before I was born.
As for the pizza delivery problem, that's no longer present. As a matter of fact, I think ordering a pizza in England is no different than it is in American nowadays. That's probably thanks to companies like Dominoes and Pizza Hut.

Yes, I am a Douglas fan and a Brony. I'm also a Dwarfer (Red Dwarf) and a Whovian (and there's a small list of other things, but I think that lot best describes what I like the most). So a little bit of everything really. Hold on... I've just realized that out of those four things, three of them were made in Britain. ಠ_ಠ

And yes, I love Monkey Island. As a matter of fact, I love all of the Lucas Arts Adventure games (although I've yet to play any of the Indiana Jones games, The Dig, Labyrinth, Loom, Full Throttle, and I only got partly through Grim Fandango)!
I really hope that Ron Gilbert one day gets the rights to Monkey Island and he makes his Monkey Island 3A (or Monkey Island 2.5, I can't remember which name he was going to use).

We must f***ing soulmates then.
Loom is real short but enjoyable, you'll like it. And I haven't played much more adventure games from Lucasarts mainly due to compatibility reasons ¬¬
I also don't want to play the remakes before the original versions (I didn't like the 3Dish versions of Monkey Island 1 and 2, I missed the bits too much)
I have the CD's to all the games you mentioned right here right know. I turn my head to the left and look at them. But none of those work.
I guess I'll have to redownload them for SCUVMM to accept them *sigh*
I didn't finish Maniac Mansion also (mainly 'cause I was too little to remember details and not getting caught EVERY freaking time)

Since many of our tastes match: Which adventure games from Lucasarts would you recommend me?

Well it's always nice to find someone you have a lot in common with! :D
It gives you a lot to talk about.

I understand what you mean about not wanting to play the remakes, especially the Monkey Island remakes. The looks of The Secret of Monkey Island remake was just horrendous!
Thankfully, with a press of a button you can just switch the graphics to the original ones. And someone actually managed to use the voices from the remakes, to turn the originals into talkie versions. Which I think is great! :D Although I've yet to test ever use it.

Yeah, you should definitely get ScummVM. It's incredibly easy to use, and even fixes a few bugs that were in the games normally. I also like some of the graphical filters you can apply. Then again, I understand that a lot of people prefer a classic experience.
Still, it's very easy to set up ScummVM. As a matter of fact, I usually found that more audio channels played when I was emulating on ScummVM than when I actually played them on my old Windows 98 computer (those old games used to be so hard to set up).

It took me years to just get into the damn house on Maniac Mansion. But in the end, I only ever finished it thanks to a walkthrough, many years later. It was still a great game though.
I remember when I first played Maniac Mansion on Day of the Tentacle. Since I couldn't get in the house, I actually thought it was a joke game of some sort with no actual possibility of winning. I finally figured out that you could move the front door mat though. It seems so obvious now.

Which Lucasarts adventure games would I recommend to you? It sounded like you already had them all!
Well as long as you're asking, I will answer. :D
I would recommend Monkey Island 1, 2, and 3 (not 4). I would also recommend Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max, Grim Fandango (I may not have completed it yet, but it was still a fun game), and if you don't mind using a walkthrough at parts I'd also recommend Zak McKracken.

For non-Lucasarts adventure games I'd recommend Broken Sword 1 and 2, and the Deponia series.
I'd also recommend Jolly Rover, but it's a bit too short and easy, with too much of a lackluster ending to fully recommend.

Hmm. It looks like I'm not the only one looking through your Favorites... I hope no one's looking through mine... :fear: :XD:

Yep, I just read that short conversation you had with Erkillers (who is my sister by the way).
If it makes you feel any better, I'm not currently looking through your favorites. Although there are probably plenty who do.

I can't remember where our conversation about this was, so I'll just add my Reply here...

I had finished that "challenge" drawing a few days ago, and now I've Sta.shed it.
This is the fattest I can make Eva currently without ruining her.
And you know what? Somehow I think this "exercise" actually helped me draw her better, because it was while I was doing it that I finally realized exactly why she was looking dwarf-like to me recently. Sure she's short, but that wasn't it. 

If you look at real human proportions, on average, a person's crotch should be very close to exactly halfway up their body. I think for males it's exactly there and for females it's slightly below halfway up. Cartoon females are supposed to be a little leggier than real ones, but, if you look at where Eva's crotch is on all her skeletal drawings, it's slightly lower than where it should be for if she were a real human! THAT's why she was looking dwarf-like! All the time I was measuring halfway up and then drawing her pelvis below that level. :facepalm:
I figured that out just in time to draw the right drawing at the link, so that one's "fixed". The unfortunate side effect of this discovery is that, with longer legs, I could make her fatter, so I need to not do that.:iconefacepalmplz:

So anyways, thanks for unintentionally causing me to find the problem with Eva. :happybounce:

Yeah, that's probably the fattest you're going to get her.

Also, I'm glad you learned something new about proportions! :D
And thanks for telling me about that as well, I'll have to try and keep that stuff in mind.

I keep forgetting that she's your sister. I need to stop doing that. :stupidme:
The only place in my Favorites you'd need to look is the folder at the top where my fanart/trades/requests/commissionsbought are. :nod:

I just figured out that if I had kept doing the "Minecraft scientific method" (8 of something, then try EVERYTHING from nothing to the same item and every other item in your possession in the center) for discovering crafting recipes for long enough, I would have figured out how to make a music player. It's just like a Note Block- as we suspected, except it requires a Diamond in the middle instead of Redstone.
