Thank You for my wonderful dA experiences!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 24, 2016, 1:00 AM


I decided to join this trending flow of features towards appreciation of dA Staff continuous work. Those who knows me for  while may be a bit surprised, so here goes an explanation :B
There are those several things, situations and conversations that changes and form your life for the future, forever. For me, joining deviantArt 9 years ago (via my old account that I had to leave), was one of the things that had a huge impact on who and where I am now. This site really has a huge influence on my daily existence, so I would like to thank each and every person who has worked on it for those years for such opportunity it gave to other people, including me, in developing abilities, finding friends, and meaning of one's life.
You know that I'm not a fan of the changes that are going on, and I'm concerned about the future of this site. But we all have to be positive, bring good vibes and inspiration not only among the community of "normal" users, but also Staff, who needs our appreciation to be motivated in working here, with us. You can't work forever on something when people keep telling you that your work is bad, no matter how strong you would be, you just start losing the interest and will to keep going on.. believe me I've been though this :B That's why I would like to encourage you into spreading positivity and support, or at least don't spread so much hate - you will start to feel better as well! :meditation: revamped 

So, thank you very much for taking care of this site, we have a wonderful community here, thousands of people who brings peace, happiness and help to each other :ilovedevart:

Celebrating Deviousness - February 2015

In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
Introducing MARX77
It is such a sheer and profound honor being part of the DeviantArt Community. The love and encouragement that I've received over the years from fellow members and staff alike is truly humbling.
I cannot thank you all enough for the wonderful support that you've shown this Dubai based Pakistani bloke, and I hope and pray that you'll continue to graciously support me on this artistic/photographic journey with DeviantArt, which for me began in mid 2008, but it really took off in 2011 - the year I was bitten by the shutterbug and I decided to take up photography. I have never looked back since.
Hi, I'm Khuram Lawrence, a Dubai based photographer, and I'm a proud member of the largest Art community in the world. DeviantArt Rocks!

Show me one Artist...... that you believe everyone is really missing out on. Just one. I don't need to know why. Stats don't matter. We all know some brilliant artists don't get seen because they don't interact, just as an example.
Mention him or her or drop some thumbs.
My pick would be noisecraft

DeviantArtist QuestionnaireBetter late than never, right?  Here's my #DeviantArtistQuestionnaire...
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Since just before I started working here, so almost 4 years.
What does your username mean?
It's pretty unoriginal -- I live in Vancouver, on the west coast of Canada where it rains a lot. My name is Chris. And, as it happens, the day I joined I was munching on a certain local snack...
Describe yourself in three words.
Japanophilic data hacker.
Are you left or right handed?
Very much right handed. Though, apparently I play pool left handed (I guess because i hold the cue the way that felt natural coming from holding a hockey stick or a baseball bat).
What was your first deviation?
Embarrassingly enough, I had to submit
New GameBottle your thoughts
How far can you throw them
Into the future?

PS.: Thanks Andorada for poking me abut this project :highfive:
PS.2: I'm sure the journal can be misread and can cause hateful comments nevertheless - I avoid any type of  stress and nerves if I can because of my health, so if there will be any - I'll just disable posting comments :shrug:

Very true. Props for writing this.
Even if we don't say it, everyday that we use this wonderful website we are appreciating the hard work of the staff.
Although I definitely think that we should say it out loud every so often.
