The Deviousness Award 2.0


Artists Creditpriteeboy
T he Deviousness Award, bestowed in recognition of exemplary membership and an outstanding spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community, has recently undergone a reevaluation to provide a focus and a re-definition as to just what Deviousness truly represents.
The award is given once per month to honor a deviant who has gone above and beyond in their services to the DeviantArt Community. The 189 recipients of the Award thus far have brought something to the community that was not there before their presence, and it's our duty — and honor — to publicly recognize their efforts in doing so.
Early on, Deviousness was given more than once per month to a deviant whose invo

Few phrases are more closely associated with the Game of Thrones fandom than this one. We know that winters in Game of Thrones are long, often lasting several years. It is also difficult for people in that world to predict when the seasons will change, the Citadel even has a special, rare breed of white raven they send out to deliver the news of the changing season. While this may just be the way that the seasons in the world of Game of Thrones

Question: Do you remove those you watch or who watch you after a certain time of no activity? Some deviants I watch haven\'t logged in for nearly a year or longer. 

31 deviants said I only remove those deviants who have deactivated.
3 deviants said Anyone who hasn't logged-in for six months I remove.
2 deviants said I must leave a comment to explain my views :eyes:
1 deviant said A deviant would have to be inactive for two years or more before I would consider removing him/her from my watch or his/her watch.
1 deviant said :+devwatch:
No deviants said Anyone who hasn't logged-in for a year or more I remove.
No deviants said To remove a watcher who has deactivated, type the deviant name into the blocked section in the settings, save then delete it and save again. This removes faves as well.

inknalcohol and I won second place in the "Visualize Our Dreams" contest! One of the prizes was a poem written by Christianonfire7 ~ she wrote a beautiful poem that fit the theme of our entries ~ "The Dream of Return Home". Here is what she wrote:
Stainless cloudsWe are all created from Legends,
of long forgotten dreams.

Clouds once captured us in stainless white sheets.
Bays of eternal seas danced graceful
-unremembered- tides against our feet.
Each night we could see the stars -shout-
their names to the galaxy.
Adjacent planets stretched out endless
arms to hug us goodnight.
There was a time when my home planet was-
-perfect and safe. Where our sanctuary rested in-
-peaceful, comforting, holy clouds.
Now, now my planet is a floating dream
lodged in my restless mind.
Where my true home forever sleeps.

Many thanks to Christianonfire7 for writing this :heart:

To Quote Jessie-kad whose amazing picture of American Pharoah as he was winning the Belmont Stakes, the third leg to winning the Triple Crown, received a DD today: "American Pharoah wins the Belmont Stakes, becoming horse racing's elusive 12th Triple Crown winner."

It has been a long dry spell since 
Affirmed won the Triple Crown in 1978. Affirmed, Secretariat and other winners belong to a small and very exclusive club.

Personally, I started to cry when I realized American Pharoah was going to win the Belmont and go down in history as a Triple Crown Winner. A long dry spell indeed.

Cuddles: Fireworks Enjoying the Fireworks - NaNoEmo Day 7 Fireworks Fireworks Fireworks Day89 - Fireworks :iconwdwparksgal-stock:
PhotoPhenom avatar  Fireworks out still going off in the neighborhood. Last night they were still bursting in the air at 1 AM. AND, they've been going off every day and night for WEEKS! AND will continue to be set hurtling into the sky at least a couple more weeks.... tens of thousands of dollars worth.... anyhoo, Tina and Linda came up for the weekend but Tina forgot her camera. She ended up using my old one, which is especially good for Fireworks pictures, set the camera on my tripod and managed to get some good pics. She loaded them onto my laptop and will run them through PS before posting, but in the meantime, she took two little movies with the camera:

Mvi 0545

Mvi 0501

I put them in, since I don't have film prividges, so hopefully you will be able to see them okay.

The little videos represent what it is like in the neighborhood for hours on end. After a couple of hours we came back inside. It was cool, unlike some areas of the US and Europe that are in the midst of a horrific heat wave, so after sitting outside from before 9 PM until nearly 11 we were cold. As I sit here typing, I keep hearing an array of fireworks still going off. There were many of the lanterns (like in the movie "Tangled") that were launched (one is shown in the little movie). They look lovely rising in the night sky then floating gently across the sky.

I'll be posting fireworks pics as I get them done. Want to crop them and see what else may need to be done. Most will be stock pictures at WDWParksGal-Stock :aww:
