Happy New Year With Some New CSS

Thu Jan 5, 2012, 5:24 AM



Hey Folks :wave:

Hope everyone's had a nice Christmas and new year :)

It's 2012, the year London makes a fool of it's self with the Olympics and then the planet implodes with embarrassment and the world ends :dummy: Should be a fun year!

So what's everyone's hopes for this year? Both on dA and off.
Personally I'm really looking forward to some of the new features we've got planned for the year ahead :giggle:
One of them has been snuk into this journal :eyes:

If there's something new you'd like to see on dA this year what would it be? Drop a comment (even if it has nothing to do with dA) it's been a while since I've posted a proper journal, and it's nice to have a catch up and see how people have been :aww:

Stay Devious DEVlANT :DEVlANT:

Yay

Fun timez :roll:


Well, this is fun... apparently I have a new test account ~DEVlANT2...

I also apparently enjoy spamming hundreds of user pages with the same comment!

I can apparently do this without even being at a computer!

Apparently my test account just got banned!

...What a shame

Emoticon Legend Style Updates

Woo! Updates! :hooray:


Morning All :wave:

As it says on the tin, there's been a style update to the emoticon legend :happybounce:

If you can remember, when you used to click on the "Emoticons" button in comment, notes or dAmn, you used to get a popup box with a colour scheme from dA v1... it was all very... 1999 :paranoid:

Well it has now had a facelift :dummy:
We've gone out with the popup and in with a shiny new modal :la:
And I'm glad to say that the colour scheme has also been updated to make it look a little more like it belongs in 2011 :B

Hopefully it should be working everywhere now (except the dAmn shoutbox is still a popup)
If you have any problems let me know :)

I've been working a couple of emote related things recently, so hopefully you'll get to see the results of some of these other projects some time in the near future :eyes:

Woo :party:

Well, it's been quite a while since I posted a journal and I've been a little quiet as of late, but life in general recently has been far from it :faint:

A couple of weeks ago I was out in San Francisco with dt developing some uba cool shiz that you may or may not get to see in the future :paranoid:
It was a manic couple of weeks of development, and huge learning curve for me as I don't usually get to make stuff, but rather, spend my time ruining other people's work instead :lol:
So it was a pleasant change to get to help out with making a couple of features to do with these little guys :wormnomnom: which as you may have noticed, I'm very fond of =p
But you'll get to see more of that at a later date hopefully :eyes:

It's always great to meet up with the people who I work with :aww: especially when it involves team building activities such as shooting Nerf bullets at pachunka whilst he tried to catch them in his mouth and trying to get a raccoon out the office using a pole and a cardboard box :giggle:

Anyway, not long 'til uni where I shall be learning how to become a real developer! You never know, maybe one day you'll find me fixing stuff :noes:

Back to today!

Happy Birthday deviantART! :happybounce:

Wow... 11 years... and look how far dA's come :dummy:
I've been on the site for almost 5 years in one for or another, and although the layout's changed, stuff's been added and I now work here, the atmosphere of dA remains as cheerful and chirpy as ever :happycry: and I look forward to still be here in another 5 years time (if $chix0r hasn't banned me) helping to keep this the best place to be on the internet :#1:

DEVlANT out :DEVlANT:

You can now Apply to be an Alpha Tester! :la:


Hi Everyone :wave:

For those of you who haven't already seen, there's some exciting stuff going on in devBUG at the moment :eager: as 9 new alpha testing spots have been opened up!

If feature testing is your kind of thing then I'd recommend you check out the devBUG Blog for info on how to apply and to get involved with the alpha testing :dummy:

For those people who have already sent in applications, you may have noticed that I've opened your note but not replied back :noes: don't fret! I am in the process of organising and reading through applications (there's quite a few!) and I'm not in any great rush to fill the nine spots that are available. I'll get back to people in due course, so in the meantime don't worry, you haven't been forgotten :lol:

Stay devious :fella:

As you may have noticed, my userpage has been going through some what of a revamp, and something I was going to need was a new journal CSS to fit with all my current styling.

It also has funky new fonts which are now available for everyone to use :omg: to find out how take a look at this!

So, what do you think of my new page layout? My design skills aren't the best but I have to say I do quite like this one (even though it is very green =p) If you have any oppinions or suggestions for it give me a shout, I'm open to ideas :lol:

Here's the Info :B


Ok, so my last journal wasn't very informative :paranoid: Here's an explanation of what's actually going on :lol:

What do I do?
As many of you have guessed (or feared) yes my job is QA testing aka breaking stuff, =p so any minor updated or new features get prodded by me to make sure nothing is going majorly wrong so that when it comes to you lot it should hopefully work smoothly and without hiccups :dummy:
As for bigger projects, as well as being tested by me they may also go into beta, in which case I shall be using devBUG to sort out all any bugs the all the =betatesters come up with :la: so make sure you're following devBUG to get info on all the latest feature updates :eyes:

Got a questions?
If you want to ask me something feel :thumbsup:
But before you ask, no I'm not telling you what the next beta project will be ;)

:salute:

On a Trip to HQ Awesomeness!

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 3, 2010, 7:41 AM

My trip of magical adventure to HQ :la:


For those of you who haven't yet fathomed it out, yesterday I went on a visit to deviantART's Head Quarters :woohoo: it is so amazingly awesome to finally meet a load of the guys who work on the site. I even got to see some uba cool secret stuff :excited: which i can't show you :paranoid:

Anyway, After getting the tour of HQ and meeting some of the guys who work there i went out with randomduck pachunka chris and spyed to great burger bar which tasted sooooooo good :drool:

After lunch i met a few more people around HQ including Heidi who let me raid the deviantARTGear store room :giggle:

I then had a chat with makepictures about stuff that had nothing to do with deviantart but he was great to talk to, then some crazy security lady came in trying to arrest everyone which was completely hilarious :rofl:

After that we ordered some food and headed off back to spyed's house with spyed randomduck pachunka chris and mhalpert where we had some food then sat around playing with some of the admin features at which point spyed banned me for being in his house, so I used pachunka's computer to ban spyed :lmao:

It was then getting late so chris drove me back (at some speed) to my hotel :lol:

So, yer, that was the most fun exciting and crazy day of my entire life :dummy: all the guys have been great, and I’m really glad i had the opportunity to come out here :D so a big thanks to everyone at HQ :glomp:

Today i'm going back over to HQ for a little bit before going back to the air port to go home :( it'll be sad to leave this all behind but it's been an experience I’ll never forget :la:

P.S. big thanks to LaurenKitsune for organising for me to come out here :hug:
