More Landscape Photography in the Thumbshare Forum
Again, I went around in the thumbshare forum, asking deviants to submit their best work to me for this feature...    Given the amount of time that it took me to make my move across the county, I collected quite a few deviants worth noting....   Without further ado, i give you the 2nd edition of Landscapes in the Thumbshare forum....

Here are a few thumbs of artists 17 years and under I've collected from the thumbshare forum or just by random browsing that I feel deserve a bit more attention for the talent the hold.

What really happens when you take your pet to the
I am posting this (and it is long) because I think our society needs a huge wake-up call. As a shelter manager, I am going to share a little insight with you all - a view from the inside, if you will.
Maybe if you saw the life drain from a few sad, lost, confused eyes, you would change your mind about breeding and selling to people you don’t even know - that puppy you just sold will most likely end up in my shelter when it’s not a cute little puppy anymore. How would you feel if you knew that there’s about a 90% chance that dog will never walk out of the shelter it is going to be dumped at - purebred or not!
About 50% of all of the dogs that are “owner surrenders” or “strays” that come into my shelter are purebred dogs. The most common excuses I hear are:
We are moving and we can’t take our dog (or cat). Really? Where are you moving to that doesn’t allow pets? . The dog got bigger than we thought it would. How big did you think a German Shep

So You Want To Suggest a DD?
After receiving nearly two dozen notes this month regarding dd suggestions that are NOT useable to me (not stock) I figured I would do a news article so you guys can safe it and use it for reference. Whenever a staff member leaves the team or something has change, I will create a new one for ya. Deal? Deal!
Thanks in advance for taking the time to check before noting admins - I love getting suggestions from the community - it helps me realize what you are all searching for in the way of stock. But considering the sheer volume of messages/notes we receive daily, I think this newsletter will cut down on the dd suggestions I cannot use and have to redirect.
Regards - keep the STOCK suggestions coming peeps ;)
**plz note - this admin list was directly copied from Moonbeam13's journal - so you can rest assured it is an updated list. thanks Danie ;)

Frame Delay Times for Animated GIFs
Please note that this article is not complete as it cannot contain the required images.  Please visit the associated journal to see the required images.
The Problem
You've had the idea, you've built your emotes, you've put them all together in an animated GIF which you upload for the world to enjoy. The comments start coming in; "Sweet", "Cute", Love it", "Why is it so slow?".  All well and good, apart from that last one.
So you take a closer look and either:
a) you scratch your head and think "it wasn't that slow when I built it"
b) you think it looks fine but other people are still saying it's slow
So what's the problem? The answer is Stupid Browsers.  Simple as that.  Our browsers are just rubbish at rendering fast animated GIFs.
The Theory
An animated GIF file consists of a number of image blocks, each with it's own control block.&

DeviantArt turns out to be an artsite!
So if you are not an artist, kindly leave.
If you like art, if you are interested in what other people make, fine. If you are a beginning artist, who wants to create and learn how to express and communicate and feel through the medium of your choice, this is the right place. We are all here to learn and we all started out staggering, falling and nobody made a masterpiece first time trying.
But if you are here because your friends are here, because you feel that having an account on this site makes you cool and coolness is all you really care about, don't bother. Most people will hate you, ignore you, or on a bad day, yell at you.
And if your idea of art is pressing 'print screen' while playing your over-merchandised computergame, or applying a photoshop-filter to your webcam photo, don't bother. We; which means I and the other people reacting in a positive way to this article, do not want you here at all. If we could, we would personally delete your account. And preferably disable your

Are you Resourceful?
In this first edition of Resourceful! I've hand picked a selection of resources that I think give the best example of what can be found in the Resource Gallery. The next editions will contain more recent submissions, along with a broader range of categories
Resourceful! is all about featuring things that help people create, so I'd like to start featuring suggestions from you guys - found something useful? Send me a note! You're welcome to suggest your own resources too - the more notes I get, the better!
In the coming days I'll also be posting the details for our logo contest, so keep an eye out for that.
