dArama - ISSUE ONE - Love.
The dynamic between core staff, volunteer staff, and the community can at times be pure quality dArama.
It's worth noting that for years I've worked pretty hard to remain neutral on community politics. Today, I'm going to shatter that concept.
Needless to say, I am extremely politically aware of the inner workings of the deviantART community. I read *a lot* of journals, comments, forums, chat rooms. I have fake accounts. I spy.
But I don't spend my time talking politics, instead I focus internally at deviantART designing technologies and implementing understandings with core staff to address the issues I see pop up.
It's time to take a moment to be a bit more petty.
The Structure
In the inner workings of our politics exists the soul of deviantART. What is this place? What was it meant to do? What does it do? What could we do better? And it's the politics that give insight into how well the greater plan is running.

Guess how many clicks: The D300 guessing game..
Its coming up on one year since I have had my D300, and am having an open contest for the closest correct guess to how many total shots I WILL have taken through it on that date.
Contest ends on: November 27, 2008
The contest will run until then, where you can put in ONE guess in the comments below.  This news article is the entry.  
Shutter clicks at time of posting:


That means, that from November 27th, 2007 until September 29, 2008 i have shot that many total shots.
So the number I will have shot in two months time will be more.
(tip: check out my journal for upcoming shoots)
For example:  17,500 = wrong,  31,423 = maybe right.
There is no set answer until that date, so there is no possible way to cheat.  If you have any questions, leave me a note or something, because you only get one guess.  Contest open to all deviantART members with a symbol in front of their nam

The Grand (or not so grand) Opening of Trashrock.
:popcorn:It’s here!:popcorn:
After a somewhat wandering start, Trashrock is finally open for business. If you are sick of sycophantic critique, hand holding and general pandering to the sugar bowl – please, visit our humble site where we claim to do nothing overly special, new or incredibly fantastic.
To answer some simple questions about the who’s and the what’s and maybe the why’s, we at Trashrock have compiled the following guide to our little corner of the litsphere for your eyes to feast upon. Feel free to smile, smirk, sneer, snigger and any other synonyms that start with an s or any other letter, at the points you feel are appropriate.
:pacman:Who are we? :pacman:
We are a core body of critics who have taken it quietly upon ourselves to take critique back into the older format of the comment and common sense. We are not a completely self serving community, it’s a tired saying, but the existence of Trashrock is solely for the writers ou
